Yamaha RX-V771 AV-receiver

The model RX-V771 is the latest addition to the catalog of Yamaha, which replaced the popular RX-V767. The novelty has received a network Ethernet interface with advanced functionality and a digital part with more perfected DAC - PCM1781. The number of HDMI 1.4 terminals impresses - 6 inputs and 2 outputs and the switching is possible in standby mode (Standby through). The power of seven-channel amplifiers (130 W) is sufficient for work with almost any speaker systems. With configuration of 5.1 you can reassign two amps of side channels for frontal speaker systems in bi-wiring mode. I should note especially a quite convenient graphical interface with a good draughtsmanship and already familiar branded YPAO auto calibration system.

The sound is almost the same for digital and analog inputs. In both cases it is fresh, has sufficient dynamics and high resolution. However, it seemed that small details at digital switching were drawn clearer and sound panorama is generally more organized.

In multi-channel mode the receiver Yamaha RX-V771 provides seamless sound field with accurate positioning of imaginary sources. What is particularly valuable - panorama stays continuous at any volume level. When level is increased, you can feel only a slight compression of dynamical range.
