192kHz/24-bit DAC: The RX-V465 uses high quality, audio-grade
Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters for all channels to maximize
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. 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 Distance: checks the distance
of each speaker from the listening position and adjusts the
delay of each channel
- Speaker Size: checks the frequency response
of each speaker and sets the appropriate low-frequency crossover
for 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
- 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

Pro Logic II/x Parameters: You can adjust the following parameters
in Pro Logic II and Pro Logic IIx 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
- Center Width: moves the
center channel output completely towards the
center speaker or towards the front left and
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.
Speaker Setup: This feature allows you to manually adjust the
following speaker settings:
- LFE/Bass Out: select the speakers that
will output the LFE (low-frequency effect) channel and the
other low-frequency signals
- Speaker Sizes: select from the following
speaker sizes for each speaker in your system:
- Front: Large or Small
- Center: Large, Small,
- Surround: Large, Small,
- Surround Back: Large x 1,
Large x 2, Small x 1, Small x 2, or None
- Bass Crossover: select the crossover
frequency of all the speakers set to Small; choose between
40, 60, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 160, and 200Hz
- Subwoofer Phase: switch the phase of
your subwoofer between Normal and Reverse
- Speaker Level Adjustment: adjust the
output level of each speaker from -10 dB to +10 dB in 0.5
dB steps (relative to the main volume)
- Speaker Distance: adjust the distance
from the listener to each speaker (and subsequently the
delay applied to the respective channel); select from 1 to
80 feet in 0.5 foot steps
- Equalizer: each of the full range channels
is adjusted individually using the seven band equalizer
Silent Cinema: The Silent Cinema mode allows private listening
of multi-channel music or movies, with an accurate simulation of surround sound,
through ordinary stereo headphones. Silent Cinema activates automatically whenever
you connect headphones while surround sound is engaged.
Compressed Music Enhancer: Compressed formats such as MP3, WMA,
and AAC generally remove high and low frequency harmonic information, resulting in
a loss of fidelity. The Compressed Music Enhancer, two-channel and 7-channel,
regenerates the missing harmonics in compression artifacts and compensates for the
loss of low- and high-frequencies to provide improved performance.
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 and Treble Control: You can independently adjust the bass
and treble from -10dB to +10dB in 2 dB increments.
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.
Straight Decoding Mode: When the unit is in the Straight mode,
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 effect processing.
Direct: The Direct mode 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 analog
sources. During Direct playback no sound is output from the subwoofer.
Impedance Selection: You can select 8 ohms or 6 ohms in the
menu depending on your speaker application.
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 -6 dB
to +6 dB in 0.5 dB increments.
Speaker Terminals: The receiver has binding post terminals
for the front speaker outputs and spring terminals for the center and
surround 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. The collar surrounding the binding post terminals prevent the use of spade
Sleep Timer: The receiver's Sleep Timer function can be set
turn the unit automatically off after 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.
