Summary: The aural experience was of fine-quality, the instruments had an open sound while vocals sounded warm and natural. The overall tonality of the multi-channel setup was not bright. The AV receiver faired pretty well in terms of music delivery, no matter what piece of music you may be listening to, the RX-V471 never adds any bit of grain or artificiality to the sound. The Yamaha RX-V471 is priced at Rs. 28,900.
Excerpt: There has been something of a dry spell for new AVRs of late. Months have passed without seeing one then, like buses, Yamaha launches the five-model strong RXV-x71 lineup all at once. To celebrate the 25 years since the launch of its Cinema DSP technology, Yamaha’s fledglings get some cutting edge features and obligatory eco-friendly credentials, too.
Summary: The Yamaha RX-V471 is a well-appointed, highly musical AV receiver that punches above its budget price tag. It's well built, sounds great, and even throws in USB playback. After a couple of years out of sync, Yamaha is back in the groove.
Pros: Refined, well-rounded audio performance; high-quality digital-signal processing modes; supremely easy to use; USB music playback.
Cons: No Ethernet networking; not massively dynamic; no album art support outside of iOS devices.
Excerpt: RX-V471 er en ren 5.1-kanals receiver med iPod-kompatibel USB-indgang i front. Yamahas rumkorrektion korrigerer for én sideplads. Receiveren mangler netværksopkobling, men skal have for god brugervenlighed, selv om receiverens display ikke viser, hvad der foregår i opsætningsmenuen, hvor man er nød til at bruge den eksterne skærmmenu. Et problem for den, som bare har projektor, da projektorens blæsestøj vil gå ud over autokalibreringen.
