'75 Series AV Receivers released
Home entertainment. Redefined.
Following on from the success of Yamaha’s acclaimed ‘73 Series which positioned the AV receiver at the heart of the smart home, Yamaha Music Australia releases its latest range of RX-V Series AV receivers with the launch of the first five models from the range (with a further four models set to be released over the coming months).
The latest instalment, dubbed the ’75 Series, is characterised by its scope of options with the RX-V475 and RX-V675 available in a new Titanium finish, and sees the introduction of digital radio (DAB+) on Yamaha’s RX-V500D for the first time in Australia. Other hallmarks of the series include enhanced connectivity for Android devices via Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) and Pandora® internet radio integrated on all network models within the series.
Integration of Pandora signals a change in the way we listen to music. It provides a personalised music streaming service for users to create their own stations on computers and devices based on a favourite artist, song, composer, genre or comedian. Whether listening to old classics or discovering new music, the ability to log in directly from a network-capable Yamaha receiver enables users to quickly and conveniently enjoy music playlists tailored specifically to their tastes.
For the first time in Australia, Yamaha introduces digital radio (DAB+) to the repertoire of receiver functions in the RX-V500D . Specific to this model within the ’75 Series and positioned at $799 RRP, users are able to enjoy unsurpassed access to radio - whether digital, Internet or more traditional FM radio. The release of the RX-V500D answers the demand from retailer and customers who have been progressively adopting the technology as it has been rolled out across the country.
Much to the satisfaction Android users, MHL connectivity brings added versatility in enabling Full HD content from compatible devices. The connection, which requires an MHL cable, provides the same convenience enjoyed previously by Apple users being able to connect devices directly to the AV receiver for music playback and charging with the added advantage of carrying a Full HD signal.
Regarding performance, the ’75 Series delivers trademark Yamaha quality with all models in the series, including the entry-model RX-V375, now armed with a discrete amplifier configuration for superior audio. Together with versatile functionality, this dedication to audio performance represents the cornerstone of the ’75 Series .
