Yamaha RX-V479 review

 

Multiroom music promises the ability to listen to all of your music anywhere in the house, or the same song in all rooms at the same time, party-style. Until now there has only been one manufacturer able to crack the collective multiroom consciousness...

The Yamaha RX-479 offers plenty of features, great connectivity and produces some of the best sound we've heard for the money. The MusicCast system delivers easy streaming throughout the house and is available on many Yamaha products.

You'll need to purchase more Yamaha products to utilize the proprietary MusicCast streaming audio in additional rooms. The receiver has only five channels and is not compatible with Dolby Atmos.

The Yamaha RX-V479 delivers superb sound quality and a long list of must-have features, making it our favorite receiver in this price range.

Yamaha RX-V479 review: Yamaha's bargain receiver steps up to multiroom music

 

Multiroom music promises the ability to listen to all of your music anywhere in the house, or the same song in all rooms at the same time, party-style. Until now there has only been one manufacturer able to crack the collective multiroom consciousness...

MusicCast is proprietary and to utilize its potential it you'll need to purchase more Yamaha products. The receiver has only five channels and is not compatible with Dolby Atmos

Consumer review by: Daniel W. (newegg.com)

easy setup, plays about everything

 

I have it hooked up to my small paradigm 5.1 speakers. it rocks! surround is great and also plays about anything on network. I have it hooked to PC media, net radio and pandora. rock on!

Does what it supposed to, decent price

Sometimes I have to switch off or switch input cause sound cuts off when switching cable box from tv to dvr or changing tv inputs, could be my old comcast box. Cant program any other component to the remote, now in search of new remote to replace four.

Great upgrade

 

Recommend

Easy setup and good sound but most important, integrates TV, DVR, Blu-ray

Still working on integrating the remote so that I don't need so many

Works as expected

 

Connected cable, Blu-ray, VHS, LG TV and all works as expected. Sound is excellent with older AIWA speakers. WIFI has not proven to be useful yet.
