    Audio Features

    Yamaha's Total Purity Concept: The Yamaha RX-V577 AV Receiver incorporates Yamaha's Total Purity Concept for the finest sound quality. The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology, and independent pure power supplies. As a result, this AV receiver can provide high-quality sound for your movie & music soundtracks.

    • High Drive Amp Technology: A fully discrete power amplifier helps maximize sound and minimize distortion of the receiver. The Yamaha RX-V577 AV Receiver is equipped with a 7-channel amplifier rated at 80 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20-20kHz, with 0.09% THD, driving 2 channels) which provides high dynamic power with low-impedance drive capability.
    • High Purity Pre-Amplification: The Yamaha RX-V577 uses high quality, audio-grade Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters for all channels to maximize sound quality. The AV receiver also utilizes low-jitter PLL circuitry to help optimize sound imaging. The result is a more dynamic sound with greater detail and less distortion.
    • Anti-Vibration Technology: The AV receiver's anti-vibration heatsinks suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure.
    • Independent Power Supplies: Independent power supplies are used for the receiver's analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry.

    Amplifier Assignment: The Yamaha RX-V577 employs assignable amplifiers for surround back speakers, front speaker-bi-amp, or Speaker B connection.

    • 7.2ch w/ Surround Back: Seven speakers are powered in the main room (Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, and Surround Back L/R).
    • 5.2ch w/ Front Bi-Amp: Five speakers are powered in the main room (Front L/R, center, and Surround L/R) with the surround back amplifier channels reassigned to bi-amp the front speakers. A bi-amplification connection uses two amplifiers for one speaker. One amplifier is connected to the woofer section of a loudspeaker while the other is connected to the combined midrange and tweeter section. With this arrangement each amplifier operates over a limited frequency range, making its job easier.
    • 5.2ch + Zone B (hybrid): Five speakers are powered in the main room (Front L/R, Center, and Surround L/R), while two speakers in a second room are connected to the receiver's surround back terminals. The Zone B speaker output allows the receiver to send 2-channel sound to a second room, limiting the main listening room to 5.2-channel output. This means that you can enjoy stereo sound in a second room of your home. The same input source is sent to both rooms (you cannot play different sources). You can choose for Zone A/Zone B to share the same volume setting or have independent volume control. Multichannel sources are mixed down to 2-channels and output to the second listening area. This is not a true dual zone receiver.

    YPAO Technology: This unit employs the YPAO (Yamaha Parametric Acoustic Optimizer), which automatically adjusts the output of the speakers based on placement, performance, and the room's acoustic characteristics. Yamaha's YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters; such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers, and even the volume level; until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room. Using the supplied Optimizer Microphone, YPAO performs the following checks and makes appropriate adjustments to give you the best possible sound from your system:

    • Speaker Wiring: Checks which speakers are connected and the polarity of each.
    • Speaker Size: Checks the frequency response of each speaker and sets the appropriate crossover frequency for each channel.
    • Speaker Distance: Checks the distance of each speaker from the listening position and adjusts the delay of each channel.
    • EQ: Each channel has a parametric equalizer; choose one of three target settings before running the setup.
      • Natural: adjusts all speaker to a natural sound; useful when the flat setting sounds too bright
      • Flat: use when all the speakers in the system have similar sound characteristics
      • Front: EQs the center and rear speakers to sound like the front; useful when your front speakers are better than the others in the system
    • Volume Level: Checks and adjusts the volume level of each speaker.
    Note: You can also choose to manually adjust the AV receiver's speaker, crossover, & EQ settings.

    Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Yamaha RX-V577 supports the following multi-channel (Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic) decoding formats.

    Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the A/V receiver via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). To enjoy true 7.1ch Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound, the receiver must be connected to your Blu-ray player via HDMI.

    Surround Parameters: The Yamaha AV receiver offers the following Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS NEO:6 audio adjustments.

    • Dolby Pro Logic II Settings: You can adjust the following parameters in Pro Logic II Music modes: Panorama (sends stereo signals to the surround speakers as well as the front speakers for a wraparound effect), Dimension (adjusts the soundfield either towards the front or towards the rear of the room), and Center Width (moves the center channel output completely towards the center speaker or towards the front left and right speakers).
    • Center Image (DTS NEO: 6 Music): This parameter adjusts the front left and right channel output relative to the center channel to make the center channel more or less dominant as necessary.

    Cinema DSP Soundfields: Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha Cinema DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent soundfields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects ideally located in these separate soundfields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater. The AV receiver offers 17 Cinema DSP programs for movies, music, and games.

    • Movie Soundfields: Standard, Spectacle, Sci-Fi, Adventure, Drama, Mono Movie, Sports, Action Game, Role Playing Game
    • Music Soundfields: Hall Munich, Hall in Vienna, Chamber, Cellar club, The Roxy Theater, The Bottom Line, Music Video, 5/7ch Stereo
    Note: You can change the receiver's Cinema DSP effect level (level of the soundfield effect to be added); you can adjust the level of the soundfield effect from -6 dB to +3 dB from the receiver or remote control. The AV Controller App for Apple iOS and Android provides even greater adjustment of Cinema DSP soundfields.

    Cinema DSP Modes: The Yamaha RX-V577 AV receiver offers proprietary Yamaha Cinema modes so you can enjoy your movies and music even more in your home; regardless if you are using 5.1 speaker setup, only have a two-channel speaker system, or listening through headphones.

    • Cinema DSP 3D: The actually measured soundfield data in recorded soundtracks contain the information of the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves the reproduction of the accurate height of theses sound images so that it can create the accurate and intensive stereoscopic soundfield in your listening room. The receiver achieves Cinema DSP 3D through its virtual Presence Speaker mode.
    • Virtual Cinema DSP: Virtual Cinema DSP is an algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP soundfield surround effects while using a minimal two-speaker system. Virtual Cinema DSP lets you enjoy the effects of Cinema DSP surround sound without using surround speakers (handy for use in custom installations where some rooms don't have surround speakers). It can be used with the front/center speakers or even with just the two front left and right speakers. This unit will switch to virtual Cinema DSP mode automatically when surround speakers are unavailable.
    • Virtual Cinema Front: With Virtual Cinema Front, you will enjoy virtual 5-channel surround sound with higher quality and resolution by installing surround speakers at the front. You get more flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.
    • Silent Cinema: Silent Cinema makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones. This is a variation of Cinema DSP technology that Yamaha developed to let you listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue.

    HiFi Sound Modes: The Yamaha RX-V577 offers two HiFi audio modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. These HiFi sound modes lets you play back input sources without any soundfield effect processing. When either of theses modes are enabled, each speaker produces its own channel audio signal (without soundfield processing). When playing back 2-channle sources, such as a CD player, stereo sound is heard from the front speakers. When playing back multichannel sources, the receiver produces unprocessed multichannel surround sound.

    • Straight: 2-channel stereo sources are output from only the front left and right speakers, while multi-channel sources are decoded straight into the appropriate channels without any additional tone or DSP processing.
    • Direct: Turns off the surround and tone circuitry, and dims the front-panel display, allowing sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors of this unit so you can enjoy pure hi-fi sound from 2-channel or multi-channel sources. During Direct playback no sound is output from the subwoofer.

    Compressed Music Enhancer: Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3, WMA, and AAC. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.

    Dynamic Range Control: The Yamaha RX-V577 employs two Dynamic Range Control functions.

    • Adaptive DRC: Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialog, vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening when you do not want to disturb others.
    • Dynamic Range: The amount of dynamic range compression applied to bitstream signals is adjustable; Min/Auto is suitable for low volume listening, Standard is typical for home use, and Max doesn't compress the dynamic range at all.

    Bass Management: The Yamaha RX-V577 AV receiver provides the following Bass Management settings.

    • Bass & Treble: You can adjust the balance of the high-frequency range (Treble) and low-frequency range (Bass) of sounds output from the receiver' front left and right speakers to obtain a desired tone. You can independently adjust the bass (50Hz) and treble (20kHz) from -6dB to +6dB in 0.5 dB increments. The tone control of the speakers or headphones can be set separately.
    • Extra Bass: You can select whether to play front channel low-frequencies through either of the front speaker or the subwoofer, or through both the subwoofer and front speakers.
    • Subwoofer Trim: The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is "pushed" toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.

    Volume Setup: The Yamaha RX-V577 allows you to customize the receiver's volume levels.

    • Max Volume Adjustment: Use this feature to set the receiver's maximum volume level. This feature is useful to avoid turning the volume too loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from -30 dB to +15 dB in 5 dB steps, or to +16.5 dB (full volume range is -80 dB to +16.5 dB).
    • Initial Volume Setting: Use this feature to set the volume level when the power is turned on. You can choose between Off (same as the volume when the unit was turned off), Mute, and -80 dB to + 16.5 dB in increments of 0.5 dB.
    • Volume Trim: Use this feature to adjust the volume level of each input. This is useful to balance the level of each input to avoid sudden changes in volume when switching between input sources. The range is from -6dB to +6dB in 0.5dB increments.
    Note: You can choose to display the "Relative" volume scale (-80 to +16dB) or an "Absolute" volume scale (0 to 97).

    Audio Inputs/Outputs: The Yamaha RX-V577 offers a variety of analog and digital audio inputs/outputs.

    • Digital Inputs: The Yamaha AV receiver is equipped with one optical (toslink) digital input and two coaxial (RCA) digital inputs capable of handling 2.0-5.1ch/32-96kHz audio.
    • Stereo RCA Jacks: The receiver is also equipped with three stereo RCA analog audio inputs and a stereo RCA analog audio record output.
    • Speaker Terminals: The receiver has binding post terminals for all the speaker outputs. The binding posts can accept bare wire, pin connectors, and single banana plugs. The terminals are spaced too far apart for dual banana plugs and a collar surrounding them prevents the use of spade connectors. You can select 8 ohms or 6 ohms in the menu depending on your speaker application. The amplifier supports 6- to 8-ohm for all speakers connections.
    • Dual Sub Outputs: The RX-V577 includes dual LFE (mono-subwoofer) outputs for connecting up to two powered subs (simultaneous outputs; not discrete).
    • Headphone Jack: The Yamaha RX-V577 is equipped with a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack for connecting a set of headphone, so you can listen to your music privately. Connecting a set of headphones automatically mutes the receiver's speaker outputs. Sound effects applied during playback can also be heard through the headphones.
    • Aux Input: The receiver features a front-panel minijack (3.5mm) audio input for connecting an external audio source temporarily.

    USB/iPod Integration

    USB Port: This AV receiver is equipped with a front-panel USB (type-A) port that allows you to enjoy a variety of music files stored on a USB mass storage class memory device; such as select Android smartphones (Froyo/Gingerbread OS only), portable MP3 players, or USB thumbdrives (not compatible with USB HDDs). Your USB mass storage class device must be formatted in FAT 16 or FAT32 .You can use the receiver's on-screen menu (via HDMI) and remote control to navigate your stored music files on your connected USB memory device. USB portable audio players that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the AV receiver's USB port (5V/1A); even in standby mode. Compatible music files include:

    • MP3 (up to 48 kHz)
    • WMA (up to 48 kHz)
    • AAC (up to 48 kHz)
    • ALAC (up to 96 kHz)
    • WAV (up to 192 kHz)
    • FLAC (up to 192 kHz)
    Note: While listening to a song from a USB device, you can view a favorite video or photo from the receiver's monitor output.

    iPod/iPhone Connectivity: The Yamaha RX-V577 offers wired (via USB) and wireless (via AirPlay) connectivity for your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.

    • AirPlay: AirPlay lets you stream your favorite songs directly from your Apple iOS (4.3.3+) device or from your iTunes (10.2.2+) library on your Windows PC or Mac computer to the AV receiver, over your home's wireless network connection. From your Apple iOS device you are able to stream stored music on your device, downloaded music apps, and music on your iCloud to the AV receiver.

    • iPod/iPhone Direct: The USB (type-A) port on the front-panel provides convenient connection for your iPod/iPhone so you can listen to your stored music and music apps through the Yamaha AV receiver.

You can browse your iPod/iPhone's stored music content via Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Genre, or Composer. You can also control Repeat & Shuffle functions. Basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track) for music apps can also be controlled by the AV receiver's remote.

    HDMI-CEC (Consumer Electronics Control): The Yamaha AV receiver supports HDMI-CEC, which synchronizes the operation of this unit with other HDMI-CEC devices when connected via HDMI. When the AV receiver is connected to a HDMI-CEC compatible TV, they will turn ON/OFF together and you can use the TV remote to control the volume of the receiver. HDMI-CEC also provides playback functionality with other components, such as your Blu-ray player. For example, you can use the receiver's remote control to operate player functions like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track, or Stop.

    Note: Not all HDMI-CEC compatible components and functions are guaranteed to work.

    AV Controller App: Download Yamaha's free AV Controller App (from Apple's App Store or GooglePlay) onto your Apple iOS (5.0+) or Android (2.1+) device and turn your mobile device into a Wi-Fi enabled remote control for the Yamaha AV receiver.

    Very Satisfied

    Written By Dayne, Hershey PA on Tuesday, December 16, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very Satisfied. Worked as advertised. Would have been nice to have blue tooth built in. Spent more money for an adapter.

    Pros: Easy to set up, just follow instructions.

    Cons: Only Blue Tooth optional

    Great for video

    Written By RickA, Knoxville, TN on Tuesday, December 09, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I replaced an older Yamaha AV receiver with the RX V-577. I found it easy to set up and remote navigation is simple. Unlike many others, I like the iOS app that's available for this unit. Granted, it's missing a few key functions, but what it does it does very well.

    I like the sound for video. It's crisp and loud with little to no distortion at high volume. I'm using the bi-amp setting for my front speakers along with dual sub woofers. The combination definitely adds some life to the sound.

    I find musical reproduction to be underwhelming. It seems a bit removed an artificial. The musical reproduction is the reason for four stars. If you're plans are to use the unit solely for watching movies, crank it up and consider the 4 star to be 5.

    Pros: Easy setup. Bi-amp capability. iOS app.

    Cons: Not very musical.

    Great product - for my simple needs

    Written By HGPILOT, Lookout Mountain, Tennessee on Tuesday, November 18, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    My needs were simple - I have a DVD / Blue Ray Player, a DVR (from my cable TV provider), an Apple TV, and video game - each with an HDMI cable. Each device is plugged into this unit and using the different input selections, each is able to fully utilize my existing surround speaker system - 2 front, 2 back, 1 center, and 1 sub. Easy to hook up and I was enjoying my new purchase in less than 10 minutes. Many of the features weren't all that important to me as I also run a SONOS system through this device. The Zone 1 and 2 features are nice, but I didn't need them.

    Despite the cons listed below, this is a great system and I would recommend to anyone.

    Pros: Buttons easy to use - my 9 year old taught me how to use it.

    Cons: Not crazy about the on-screen interface or the iOS app - which would have made me give a full 5 stars. I don't particularly find either interface all that intuitive. I can get around OK, but it could be so much better. The good news is that once configured, you really don't need to access again. Also, I really don't care for the way the speaker wire attaches to the inputs on the back of the unit. I've had other manufacturers with simpler connections.

    Worth every penny!

    Review of Yamaha RX-V577 Receiver

    Written By ErnieB, Cleveland, TN on Wednesday, October 08, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I am pleased with my purchase of the Yamaha RX-V577. I am only using the front, center and subwoofer speakers until I can purchase more speakers. The sound is great with only these few spealers. I still have several connections to make but I will get those completed at a later time.

    Pros: The receiver is working just as I expected it to.

    Cons: The manual is a little complicated.

    Written By DaveN, Hiawassee GA on Monday, September 29, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    So far so good, replaced an old Onkyo that was 15 years old no hdmi inputs and pretty much analog switching. This unit plugged right in, set up WAS EASY - just confirmed my Dish TV box was set to Dolby, set TV for HDMI sound, plugged in receiver, speakers (JBL minis) that are 15 years old with powered sub-woofer powered it up and wa la GREAT surround sound throughout my little and I mean Little home. Ran the Yamaha sound set up - since my home is so small I had to adjust speakers manually, but no big deal - as the set up pops up over the top of your TV screen/picture for EASY adjustment. Had an issue with the "scenes" NOT good doc on how to change them, but Crutchfield to the service and all was resolved in 5 minutes.

    Cons: Scene set up is NOT well documents at all. Docs come on CD - had to print them out so I can sit in front of TV and work with the receiver.

    Solid performance and simple set up

    Written By BobM, Livermore, CA on Monday, September 15, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The Yamaha RX-V577 is a very solid "central command" unit providing clear and solid output through my Bose Acoustimass 5.1 system. The set up is quite easy and the iPhone app works well. I have as the central support for a DirectTV box, Apple TV, and BlueRay player - switching between them is a snap. Unlike another Denon unit I bought and returned, the pass thru with the Yahama works flawlessly with the unit on or off (the other did not work with the unit off). What's convenient is when the unit is on it swaps the sound to the Bose system and away from the TV and vice versa when the unit is off - I have to do nothing other than manage volume. Wifi performance is very good - no issues at all and overall its a very user friendly unit as everyone in the family can use it without training.

    Pros: Great sound, Excellent Pass Thru Controls, Simple set up process, iPhone App

    Cons: Set up UI has more of a web 1.0 look (but is functional)

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Purchase the RX-577 desiring that it would drive some very old Sansui speakers. The RX-577 is able to power and these speakers with an awesome sound. The dsp mode available on the downloadable ap are awesome and hope Yamaha continues to develop other dsp modes. Overall very happy with this av receiver the sound that comes out of it is awesome and I would recommend this to others to consider for a home AV system.

    Above average unit

    Written By RussellR, Hansville, Wa on Sunday, July 06, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Solid receiver, good sound, decent power. Much better on screen graphics than the Sony (that replaced my 10 year old Onkyo) it replaced. I have not used the wireless since my TV, Sat box and Blu-ray all have wireless. Not sure whether I will keep this or try a different brand; Onkyo or NAD. It is a good unit, just has not wowed me with the new technology. My 25 year old NAD 25 WPC receiver has cleaner sound and more apparent power with the exact same speakers.

    Pros: Good sounds, lots of adjustments once you figure out how. Lots of flexibility in design.

    Cons: The manual is not the easiest to figure out all the gadgets and adjustments.

    Just what I was looking for

    Written By ddorans, Agawam,Ma on Friday, May 23, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Replaced a pioneer elite receiver . Less power but no real problem with that regard. Calibrated myself with a iPhone app, spl meter . Easily done with better results than the onboard calibration. Getting the arc to work with tv was a little tricky but that's what google is for. Very happy with the results . Highly recommend the product. Cruchfield as always a joy to deal with.

    Pros: Love the iPhone app that makes it a lot easier to choose the various sound field modes . All components except tv are in separate room . Pretty seamless. Does every thing the remote does without the tiny remote buttons to deal with and can adjust the sound stage.

    Cons: None at present

    I haven't had a receiver for many years since I had my last one, than I bought this Yamaha. I just love the one button option for switching from the tuner,TV,BD-DVD... If you have smarter TV you can control the volume from TV's remote, you can control the BD-DVD player from the receiver's remote, too.I haven't tried other receivers, but I'm very happy with the sound from this one.I'm using it with Polk TSX 5.1 set up with the bi-amp option and I'm quite happy.You can tell it was made smart, to serve you with ease and leave you happy.

    Outstanding A/V receiver

    Written By Paul L, Clarksville, MD on Wednesday, April 30, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have owned Sony, Denon and Onkyo and This is my first Yamaha receiver, I could not be any happier with the performance and easy set up. The Yamaha's YPAO speaker set up microphone is fast and accurate. Very happy with plenty of HDMI connections for all my gear. What is really cool about this unit is the Yamaha smartphone and IPad app that you can control the unit from those devices. I have no problems going to all the different sound fields, a lot easier than my previous receivers. My sales rep Eddie was a great help in my purchase, plus Crutchfield had it at my door the next day, as always Crutchfield is the best at what they do !! You can't go wrong with the Yamaha RX-V577 !! Paul L

    Pros: Quick and easy set up Wireless 7.1 channel Looks great Awesome Power

    Cons: No paper owners manual, have to print it out.
