The RX-V557B 6.1-channel receiver offers outstanding sound and picture quality, with a wide range of desirable features such as 540W (90W x 6 RMS, 8ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.06% THD) power, Quad-Field CINEMA DSP and component video up conversion.

Digital ToP-ART and High Current amplification
The Digital ToP-ART design concept combines the latest and best technologies, parts and circuit designs to maximise sound quality. High Current amplification uses superior components to achieve high current power with low impedance from the power supply circuit to the speaker terminals.

High performance D/A converters
The RX-V557B uses extremely high performance 192kHz/24-bit DACs for all six channels. They perform accurate sound field reproduction for high quality multi-channel sources and provide outstanding separation and precise musical delineation for two-channel stereo. They also deliver superior low level linearity with excellent full scale performance.

Direct Stereo
The RX-V557B features Direct Stereo, where the input stereo signal bypasses the DSP circuitry, creating a pure signal output without any processing or data loss.

Custom installation compatibility
The RX-V557B is also designed for use in custom installations. It has a Zone 2 Selector so the audio signal can be output in a second room. You can also enjoy audio in 3 different zones in your home by using main zone speaker output, Speaker B output, and zone 2 audio output. A 12V trigger output can be used to automatically power on Zone 2 components and there is also an IR port, with extended IR code compatibility.

Subwoofer crossover selection and phase select
The RX-V557B provides a choice of nine subwoofer crossover frequencies: 40, 60, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 160 and 200Hz. In addition to providing a wider range than other receivers, the steps from 80 to 120Hz are only 10 Hz apart for more precise selection. The RX-V557B also features phase select, allowing you to switch the phase of the subwoofer if the bass is weak or muddy, thereby improving performance and delivering optimum bass sound.

Quad-Field/Tri-Field CINEMA DSP and 14 surround programmes
Yamaha’s ultra-sophisticated Quad-Field and Tri-Field CINEMA DSP technology creates realistic soundscapes in your lounge room. Fourteen surround programmes provide full format compatibility and extensive listening choices.

Night Listening Enhancer and SILENT CINEMA
During low-volume listening, such as late at night, dynamic range suffers and you may miss some sounds. The Night Listening Enhancer offers two modes, Cinema and Music, with three-level selectability, which will ensure that you don’t miss movie dialogue,quiet passages, or lose overall surround spaciousness. It works for all surround programmes, including Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
SILENT CINEMA mode allows private surround sound listening enjoyment of multi-channel music or movies through ordinary headphones.

Audio Delay
The Audio Delay function on the RX-V557B matches the audio to the timing of the video on the screen (also known as lip sync), correcting the audio-video time lag sometimes caused by the complex internal processing of some display devices.

Component video conversion
The RX-V557B features automatic video up conversion (composite to S-Video and component, S-Video to component) and down conversion (S-video to composite). Simply use the best possible cable between the receiver and the TV, and whatever the source is, you are assured of getting the highest possible quality.
