The Yamaha RXV361 makes an ideal first step into the world of home cinema separates.
With a punchy 100 watts per channel, the RXV361 is ideal for driving a wide range of speaker packages and, thanks to Wide Frequency response, will give you a superb dynamic range.
In terms of socketry, the RXV361 has all the basics covered and even includes three component video inputs and a 5.1 channel in - ideal for HD-DVD and Blu-ray players. Best of all, if you have an iPod or MP3 player, you'll appreciate the front panel mounted mini jack. When this is combined with the compressed music enhancer you have a home system that will make the most of your iPod or MP3's music content.
As this is a Yamaha you'd expect plenty of DSP (Digital Signal Processor) modes, and the RXV361 doesn't disappoint; 3 hi-fi modes and 5 cinema settings provide a wide choice of audio effects. Furthermore, Silent Cinema provides enhanced headphone listening whilst night time listening can also be enhanced without disturbing the neighbours.
As starter AV receivers go, the Yamaha RXV361 makes all the right moves!
