Yamaha rx-v381bl review (Black)

For all those who love enjoying all the action in a movie, TV show or music video, a solid and reliable A/V receiver unit is a must-have. In case you are not an audiophile, let me share that A/V units pick up the audio and video signals from the source and then decodes and splits them to your home theatre speaker set up.

A basic receiver system should be able to support a 5.1 speaker arrangement and the latest HD audio files, for e.g. the Dolby digital plus or DTS HD Master Audio files.

In addition, you can also check for features such as receivers with multiple jacks for connecting all your speakers and USB and Bluetooth connectivity.

Once you have your receiver unit chosen well, you can simply connect it up and enjoy the show.

One line unique Introduction:

This receiver unit is a basic model which makes a great impression with its performance and guarantees a great sound quality even without going overboard with features.

Introduction:

With the 5.1 channel s and 70 watts per channel output, this Yamaha Receiver is bound to make your drawing room entertainment sessions more of an immersive experience.

While testing it I tried out a watching Raid 2 with it and then some of the sounds really flew out from the speakers to make me turn around. Though this is an entry-level model, it packs enough punch to make most of us quite satisfied with its performance as you will find in our

Yamaha RX-v381bl review.

Unique Features:

Virtual surround speakers

In case you are unable to place the rear speakers behind the sitting position, you can still enjoy the virtual 5 channel sound even with all the speakers placed in front. This is a very advantageous feature for many of us.

Compressed music enhancer

We all know that compressed music files like Mp3 do not allow us to enjoy the best quality music. Now, with this system, the music enhancer can restore the lost quality to enhance your musical experience to a large extent.

The Yamaha RX-V381BL Receiver makes it very easy with its optimized Bluetooth connectivity, for someone to listen to music via Bluetooth without losing on the quality front.

So, if you want to listen to something from your Smartphone, it is going to be a simple task for you.
