NEW PRODUCT BULLETIN RX-V461 5.1-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver Advanced Features SCENE — A New Level of Operating Ease Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Movie Viewing, Music Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button automatically launches a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings from among 15 SCENE templates is quickly done by rotating the Input knob and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for onetime use, or to replace the original default settings. The SCENE names can be changed also. YPAO Sound Optimization The RX-V461 has a unique YPAO system that analyzes 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 tweak your system. On-Screen Display The receiver displays operating status, iPod operating commands and radio information (varies by area) on the screen. This is very convenient, because you can make the receiver settings while viewing the screen. Front Panel Mini Jack A mini jack on the front panel makes it convenient to connect portable audio players. Initial Volume and Maximum Volume Two new volume setting functions are including on this receiver for additional convenience. Initial Volume Setting allows you to set the volume level that will be heard each time the power is turned on. Maximum Volume Setting prevents unexpected loud sounds, for example if a young child turns the volume knob. High Sound Quality Direct Stereo You can enjoy pure HiFi sound from 2-channel PCM and analog sources by the “Direct Stereo” mode which allows sources to bypass the decorders and DSP processors. High Picture Quality 3 HDTV Compatible Component Video Input Terminals Component Video inputs offer higher picture quality, for use with units such as DVD players that have Component Video output. The frequency response of the component video signal is 5Hz – 60MHz, making it compatible with HDTV (1080i/720p). Because we know that many people like to use several high quality video devices, we have given this receiver three component video inputs instead of the usual one or two. You can enjoy three different sources without having to change connections. Surround Realism 8 DSP Programs: 3 HiFi DSP and 5 CINEMA DSP Programs You have a choice of eight unique Yamaha DSP surround programs to bring out the full audio potential of your entertainment sources. 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 the excellent sound quality expected from top class receivers. dB 10 0 Compressed Music Enhancer On Compressed Music Enhancer Off -50 -100 0 5 10 Frequency (kHz) 15 20 Stereo Mini Jack* Dock Terminal for YDS-10 Optical Digital (Fixed and Assignable) Coaxial Digital (Fixed and Assignable) S-Video Analog A/V / Audio* Component Video Multi-Channel External Decoder * Including front panel Video Aux terminals. 1 1 2 1 3 4/2 3 6ch Outputs Inputs The Compressed Music Enhancer restores the original, live sound of your music, especially deep, strong sounds like bass and drums.

Night Listening Enhancer and SILENT CINEMA The Night Listening Enhancer offers two modes, Cinema and Music, with three-level selectability, which will ensure that you don’t miss movie dialogue or quiet passages, or lose overall surround spaciousness even during low volume listening late at night. The SILENT CINEMA mode allows private listening enjoyment of multichannel music or movies, with an accurate simulation of surround sound, through ordinary headphones.
