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 12
SCENE templates is quickly done by rotating
the Input knob. The settings can be selected
for one-time use, or to replace the original
default settings. The SCENE names can be
changed also.
Front Panel Mini Jack
A mini jack on the front panel makes it
convenient to connect portable audio players.
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
High Dynamic Power Capability
The RX-V361 receiver is capable of delivering
large amounts of reserve power for accurate
reproduction of the high energy peaks that are
especially prevalent in digital audio sources.
This prevents clipping and emphasizes the
music’s dynamic qualities.
192kHz/24-Bit DACs for All Channels
This receiver uses extremely high performance
192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters for
all channels. The DACs provide accurate
sound field reproduction for high quality multichannel sources, and outstanding separation
and precise musical delineation for twochannel sources. They deliver superior lowlevel linearity with excellent full-scale
performance under varying operation
Wide-Range Frequency Response for
DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD
With an extremely wide frequency range of
10Hz to 100kHz, this receiver is capable of
delivering the full potential of the new digital
audio sources DVD-Audio and Super Audio
High Picture Quality
9 Selectable Subwoofer Crossover
This model provides a choice of nine
subwoofer crossover frequencies: 40, 60, 80,
90, 100, 110, 120, 160 and 200 Hz. In
addition to providing a wider range than
other receivers, the steps from 80 to 120 Hz
are only 10 Hz apart for more precise
Subwoofer Phase Select
Another feature for optimum bass sound. If
bass is weak or muddy, switching the phase of
the subwoofer will often improve performance.
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
DSP surround programmes 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.
Advanced Facilities
3 HDTV Compatible Component Video Input
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

Compressed Music Enhancer On
Compressed Music Enhancer Off
Frequency (kHz)
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
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.
mode allows private listening
enjoyment of multichannel
music or movies, with an
accurate simulation of
surround sound, through
ordinary headphones.
Audio Delay for Adjusting Lip-Sync
The latest display devices perform complex
internal processing, causing time lag in the
video signal. It is a small time difference, but
because the audio arrives first, the viewer may
feel that something is not natural. The Audio
Delay function for adjusting Lip-Sync matches
the audio to the timing of the output of the
video on the screen.
