Yamaha's RX-V863 delivers riveting multichannel sound from all your movies, music, and TV shows, thanks to 105 high-current watts per channel and top-quality Yamaha construction. It also includes Dolby® True HD and DTS-HD™ Master Audio decoding — two up and coming high-resolution surround sound formats available with some Blu-ray Disc™ players and movie titles. The built-in HD Radio™ tuner lets you listen to free, over-the-air digital programming now being broadcast by many AM and FM stations. And you can add more cool digital entertainment options like XM and SIRIUS satellite radio, and iPod® integration.
Versatile video connections and 1080p HDMI upconversion
The 'V863 gives you 1080p-compatible HDMI switching for connecting three high-definition video components. It also adds analog-to-HDMI conversion, so you can send all of the video sources in your system to your TV via a single HDMI cable. Plus, this receiver can actually upconvert any non-HD source to a digital video signal with up to 1080p resolution. This lets you enjoy maximum picture quality on your HDTV with standard-definition DVDs and older video sources.
Preset "SCENE" buttons for easy operation
Yamaha's special SCENE modes let you get to your entertainment sources in a hurry. Just press one of the four preset SCENE buttons on the receiver's front panel or remote, and the 'V863 automatically switches to the correct input setting and sound mode for DVD viewing, disc listening, TV viewing, or radio listening. Plus, you can individually reprogram each button for different activities of your choice, such as playing video games, listening to records on your turntable, and more.
Quick, accurate auto setup
Yamaha's sophisticated YPAO auto-calibration system enables easy, precise home theater setup. Plug in the included microphone and place it in your favorite seat. The receiver analyzes the size, volume, relative distance, and frequency response of every speaker in your home theater system, adjusting the settings for each one individually. In minutes, your receiver configures itself for optimum performance with your specific speakers and their placement within the room.
