Maybe not the best AV receiver available, But seems to be a great price for an entry level piece of beauty ;)

"Superb surround sound on a budget an absolute no-brainer if you're building your first home cinema system." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. 5-star review, reviewed at £260.

TOP QUALITY AMPLIFICATION NOW WITH EXTRA BASS FUNCTION

At the heart of this Yamaha AV receiver is a high quality amplifier. First and foremost, the RXV377 features a discrete amplifier with low jitter PLL (Phase-Locked Loop) circuitry for higher quality audio, that's especially noticeable with music. Discrete rather than chip-based amplification offers a wide range of benefits including the potential for a more dynamic and powerful sound. The amplifier also delivers a handy 70 watts per channel (6 ohms) which is ample for all but the most demanding speakers and rooms. New to this year's model is 'Extra Bass' function. As the name suggests, this gives a deeper, richer bass response and is especially effective with small front speakers and at lower volume levels.

POWERFUL PROCESSING

As you'd expect from Yamaha, the digital processing is also first rate. In addition to full HD audio decoding of both Dolby and DTS formats, the RXV377 features Yamaha's famous DSP Surround programs. With 17 modes from The Roxy Theatre to a concert Hall in Munich, the RXV377 gives a variety of acoustic settings simply not available on rivals. Added to this, SCENE selections ensure that you always have the correct setting when watching films or listening to music. At the touch of a button you can quickly and easily call up one of four preset settings - ideal for when you want a different sound from games console and TV.

ENHANCED CONNECTIVITY

The Yamaha RXV377 features 4K pass-through for the HDMI sockets. With 4K TVs now coming through in big numbers this year, by equipping this Yamaha AV receiver with 4K pass-through sockets, Yamaha have engineered in a degree of future proofing. The 4 HDMI inputs are also 3D Ready and support Audio Return Channel (ARC) functionality for reduced cabling. The RXV377 is also equipped with a front-mounted USB interface. It might not look much, but this little socket will transform the sound quality from your iPod or iPhone. By connecting to the USB, you'll benefit from a digital connection. This gives a direct signal and, hence, purer sound quality than using a conventional dock or analogue input. Another great feature is that it will also charge your iPod or iPhone - even when the receiver is switched off, in standby!

EASY TO USE

With YPAO sound optimisation and colour onscreen display, the Yamaha RXV377 isn't the daunting prospect to operate that you might expect. YPAO uses the supplied microphone to measure your room's acoustics and then sets the various parameters to suit. All this is done within just a few minutes and gives professional results at the touch of a button. The GUI (Graphical User Interface) makes all aspects of the receiver easy to control.

OTHER GREAT FEATURES

Other great features with this Yamaha AV receiver include Compressed Music Enhancer and A/V lip sync function. Compressed Music Enhancer improves the sound from MP3 sources such as computer audio or iPods/iPhones, giving them enhanced detail at the top end and lower bass. A/V lip sync function ensures you get a perfect match between the image of dialogue on your TV and the actual sound from your speakers. Finally, the RXV377 comes with an ECO mode and low standby power consumption, ensuring it's amongst the most energy efficient in its class.

If it's quality over gimmicks you seek then budget AV receivers don't come better than this.

That's 100w per channel.... Now go and count how many channels it has ;)

It has a USB port but it says it's only compatible with Apple products.

Not entirely true, you can also play MP3/wav/aac from any usb mass storage device - see pg75 of the manual (linked on the Richer Sounds product page).
No flac tho.

Good to know. I didn't check the manual, I was just going by that What Hi-Fi review which says:

"Those with Apple devices can still play their digital tunes by plugging an iPod, iPhone or iPad into the front panel USB port (which handily also charges your device), while other music players can be plugged into the 3.5mm input."

I was looking into getting this A/V a few days back but went for the Onkyo TX-NR535 instead as it had Wifi and Blutooth built in for £190 delivered at Amazon.De on Lightning deal
This is a good entry level amp but you can get way better for the money if you shop around!

What does 4K ready mean? RS website says it has no 4K up scaling.

just means the receiver will accept a 4k source and pass it on through to your tv

Bought this with the Q acoustics 2000i speaker pack for ~£585 from Superfi. They usually cost £650 for the package including free QED cable kit (supposedly worth £135) and Superfi frequently have 10% discount codes so I'm sure you can get this after Xmas for the same price

PS works fine. Easy to set up and I'm not convinced spending more really gets you an appreciably better system. I just wishe there was an easy way to hide all the chuffing cable (4 normal speakers, centre speaker, subwoofer which has to be close to the amp and power source and any input sourced e.g. BluRay player)

It isn't really. That's 100w with a single channel driving a simple test tone. The unit itself will never output more than it's PSU is capable of drawing from the wall at any one given time, minus a small percentage because the PSU won't be 100% efficient. The maximum power draw for this unit is 260w so even if it was 100% efficient it would only be capable of drawing 52w per channel with all the channels fully loaded.

As it's unlikely to ever have every channel 100% loaded at the same time yamaha offer a modest estimate of 85 effective watts (425 total) per channel with 5 channels driven under normal usage. In reality, it'll likely be a little less than that.

you should be able to as long as the speakers have terminals on the back and not just a permanent wire coming out of them

They fit with both 'banana plug terminals' and bare wire, Well they do assuming its the same setup as the RX-V671.

Couple of questions

1. I have a 6 year old Panasonic surround sound system which is still great but won't play true hd audio. But pairs with my panasonic TV great meaning I can control the surround sound with just the sky remote. Is this possible with this or would I need 2 remotes?

2. Could I use my existing tall speakers? It's a 5.1 setup and the sub is not mains powered.

Thanks.

It's same price at Superfi with 2 years warranty.

Depends on the impedance, my Sony 5.1 has speakers that are 3 ohms rather than 8ohms, you may find that the amp may struggle with low impedance speakers if you intend to play it loud. Check your manual first.

Surely it's the other way around - high impedance i.e. more resistance - needs more power? lower impedance sounds louder with the same amplification. The true measure will be the speaker's sensitivity which will be measured in dB and is the sound level produced by 1 watt at one metre distance..

I have owned one of these amplifiers for couple of years, been very happy with it. For this money you really can't go wrong (Think I paid £249)

The RXV37x series has no network connectivity and therefore cannot be controlled with the app (or play back any network sources). So if you want that functionality you'll need to spend a bit more (or hack something up externally).

Its not the wattage it is the current that may suffer. A lower impedance requires the amp to work harder to drive enough current to maintain flow. This added demand can be too much for an amplifier and cause it to over heat and shut down. In theory 8 Ohms: 100 Watt , 4 Ohms: 200 Watt, 2 Ohms: 400 Watt, 1 Ohm: 800 Watt but usually only higher end amps (Krell) can still deliver the current whilst driving low impedance speakers ie Apogee Scintilla etc. However my Sonys aren’t current hungry like Apogee Scintilla, so I’m sure yours will be fine. I’m planning on getting the RXV677 and I’m sure it may work ok with my small Sony speakers I would rather get some better 5.1 speakers.

I highly doubt that seeing as this Receiver was only introduced in May of this year!

Having checked the model number, I apologise - it is indeed an older model (RX-371).

Bought one from richer sounds for this price a few months ago. Stopped working and is in for repair. However, richer sounds have given me a temporary unit whilst being repaired. Great service.
Its a great amp for t he price. USB works well for apple and USB sticks.
I use the Arc hemi interface from my TV. The amp is located in a room next door with Virgin box, android box and Xbox one /360 hdmi cables. Then a single hdmi to the back of my TV.
You can mix inputs such as hdmi video and spdif sound. Yoko can also name the inputs to whatever. Eg Xbox 1 or Virgin.
Ii combined with a Yamaha sub (£90) and their cheap Pioneer surround speakers (£30). No audiophile but sounds good to me for. the price.
