5.1-channel powerful and stylish surround system
The AV receiver ensures that action movies with loud, dynamic soundtracks will be heard in spectacularly realistic surround sound. The front, surround and centre speakers are high quality models capable of reproducing high definition audio, and the subwoofer uses Yamaha‚¬„s exclusive Advanced YST technology to deliver clean, crisply powerful bass. Rounded corners give the speakers a stylish appearance.
HD Audio with CINEMA DSP
The receiver is capable of decoding the latest HD audio formats, which can be enjoyed together with CINEMA DSP sourround sound programmes, for natural and expansive sound imaging.
Discrete Amp Configuration for High Clarity Audio Performance
The AV receiver was designed with a strong focus on achieving exceptionally high sound clarity. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance.
HD Audio Compatible Speakers, for Great Movie Sound
Compatible with HD audio sources, the YHT-299 speakers deliver superb music and movie sound. The speakers are tuned to provide a clear, soft sound that is pleasant to listen to for long periods.
Advanced YST for Awesome Deep Bass
Yamaha‚¬„s exclusive Advanced Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) generates incredible bass from small speaker enclosures. Advanced YST is the ideal method of combining amplifiers and speakers for maximum performance. This system‚¬„s advanced negative impedance converter intelligently adjust the negative impedance generation as the speaker moves, creating a hard, rigid cone that prevents deep resonant waves from leaking out of the speaker cone. This means the full power of the waves is forced out through the air port, resulting in clear, powerful bass.
4K pass-through for next generation super high resolution images
This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI features including 4K pass-through. 4K refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. While not yet available, 4K displays and sources are sure to become popular in the future. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K data from the source to the display, for image clarity far beyond present standards.
HDMI (4 in/1 out) with 3D and Audio Return Channel
Four HDMI terminals provide convenient one-cable connection of various HD digital sources. HDMI also offers two special features: 3D for 3D video signals and Audio Return Channel.
USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel provides convenient connection for your iPod/iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV Receiver, noise interference is minimised and sound quality is much better.
USB Port for Direct Access to MP3 or WMA Tracks on USB Devices
The USB port on the front panel allows quick and easy connection of USB storage devices, for immediate enjoyment of MP3 and WMA tracks.
Compressed Music Enhancer
When music is encoded in a digital compressed format such as MP3, frequency response suffers in the high and low ranges. Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms, enabling faithful reproduction of the original music, for excellent sound quality.
YPAO for Automatic Speaker Setup
The YHT-299 uses Yamaha‚¬„s YPAO system that quickly and automatically analyses the acoustics of the room and adjusts various speaker parameters to provide the optimum sound at the listening position. It‚¬„s like having a professional audio engineer set up and tweak your system.
SCENE for Easy One-Touch Operation
Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for BD/DVD Movie Viewing, TV Viewing, CD Listening and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button turns on the power, selects the input source and assigns the optimum DSP mode for that source.
OSD with Colour Icons
The YHT-299 features Yamaha‚¬„s latest on-screen display, which provides colour icons for quick identification. Menus can be viewed in English, German, French, Spanish, Russian Italian, Japanese or Chinese. In addition, menus can be overlaid over the image.
Curvy Design for Chic Interiors
The surround speakers have a curved shape that blends nicely with any interior. They are just the right size for good sound quality and convenient placement in almost any location.
ECO mode lowers power consumption by 20%*
Yamaha's new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set easily from the top of the OSD menu.
* Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
Auto Power Down
Auto Power Down after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours (selectable) and extremely low power consumption make this an environmentally friendly receiver.
