Yamaha releases first receiver from new '75 Series.


User-friendly control, serious performance.

Yamaha Music Australia is pleased to announce the launch of the ’75 Series AV receivers with the release of five models from a class of nine that make up the series.

Designed with ease-of-use in mind, the entry-level RX-V375 doesn’t skimp on delivering features which were previously reserved for higher-end models. In addition to exclusive Yamaha technologies including YPAO auto calibration and one-touch SCENE operation, the RX-V375 sees Yamaha employing a discrete amplifier configuration from the entry-level model in the range.

“Having discrete amplification throughout the entire range is a really important step in establishing superior audio performance as a key cornerstone of the ’75 Series,” commented Justin d’Offay, AV Product Manager for Yamaha Music Australia. “As an entry-point into the receiver market, it presents excellent value-for-money and will provide customers with a first-class audio experience.”

Discrete amplification refers to the design of the amplifier circuit to enable independent amplification for each speaker as opposed to a hybrid circuit to power all channels. The resulting effect is excellent speaker control and cleaner power for improved overall sound quality. In addition, each channel boasts a 192 kHz/24-bit Burr-Brown DAC for superior sound reproduction.

Rated at a powerful 100W for each of its 5 channels*, the RX-V375 replaces Yamaha’s highest selling AV receiver from last year - the RX-V373. iPod/iPhone integration remains central to the receiver’s universal appeal as does HDMI device control which utilises CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) to operate third party Blu-ray players and TVs from a single remote. For savvy customers, Ultra HD pass-through ensures compatibility with the emerging video standard when ultra high-definition content becomes available in the format.

The RX-V375 AV receiver is available now with a recommended retail price (RRP) of $499 and is also included in the YHT-299 home theatre package with satellite speakers at $649 RRP (RX-V375 equivalent - HTR-3066), and the YHT-699AU 5.1 channel package with floor-standing front speakers for $1,099 RRP.
