If you want the fully immersive cinema effect, then AV separates can’t be beaten. Take a listen to the Yamaha RXV383 and you’ll hear just what we mean.

Fully immersive sound
Soundbars are great but there's nothing that can beat the sound of a separates AV system. With five channels of sound from a discrete amplifier, the RXV383 surrounds you in rich, low distortion sound – just like at the cinema. The amplifier also delivers a handy 70 watts per channel (6 ohms), meaning it can cope with even the punchiest-sounding blockbusters. There’s also an 'Extra Bass' function. This gives a deeper, richer bass response and works really well with small speakers and at lower volume levels.

Ready for the latest UHD sources
For full compatibility with the exciting new UHD Blu-ray format, all the HDMI sockets are compatible with HDR Video including Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log-Gamma, and BT.2020. Four inputs let you connect up a Blu-ray, games console, set-top box and PC – enough for an entire home cinema system.

Flexible processing
Another advantage of going for AV separates is the inclusion of powerful surround sound processing. As well as full HD audio decoding of both Dolby and DTS formats, the RXV383 features Yamaha's famous DSP Surround programs. With 17 modes from The Roxy Theatre to a concert Hall in Munich, the RX-V383 gives a variety of acoustic settings for a unique sound. Added to this, four SCENE selections ensure that you always have the best setting when watching films or listening to music.

Connect up your smartphone via Bluetooth and stream your music
Pair up your smartphone or tablet and you can wirelessly stream music. Playback music stored on your device or stream music services such as Spotify. Thanks to the Compressed Music Enhancer, the sound quality is also enhanced, giving a more spacious and natural sound.

Connect it all - including your USB media device
With no fewer than four HDMI inputs, the RXV383 is flexible enough for the most complex AV systems. There are also a wide range of other inputs for older sources you may have, like DVD players. Around the front there's a USB interface that's ideal for plugging in a memory stick and playing back your digital music files.

Setting up is easy
With YPAO sound optimisation and colour onscreen display, the Yamaha RXV383 isn't as hard to set-up as you might have feared. 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.

A big screen is only half the story. Switch to a Yamaha RXV383 and get the immersive sound to match.

Not seen spring clips instead of posts on a AV Amp for a while! Heat for the price though. I am in the market for a 4k AV amp but this doesn't fit my needs, however for a basic AV set up this would take some beating.
I do like Yamaha kit. I had a very old Onkyo receiver until last year when it was time to upgrade ready for 4k. The 3xx line didn't quite have the features I needed, I ended up going for the RXV581 and it has been excellent.
Specification on the RXV383 is good - well worth it if it has all the features you require.
Look at onkyo too

This doesn't fit my needs either (and I would definitely pay the extra £20 for the black colour) but the price is good and thought might be good fit for someone else.

Binding posts for the front speakers. Quite common to use spring clips on surround.

Need to replace my Yamaha RX-V2065 to get up to date with all the 4K stuff.Might even jump over to Marantz as they compliment my speakers just like the Yamaha.


What do people do with old receivers??It's been a cracking receiver so don't just wanna bin it.

Does it work? You can trade in at Peter Tyson's, not sure about Richer Sounds.

For £179?


Why not? It's only a software solution after all.

It's a 5.1 receiver though

Need another couple of channels of amp, so not just software
Just bought the Denon for £149, similar spec but 5 HDMI.

It needs upfiring speakers to work. This is a 5.1 channel amp.

I agree that is probably what I would go for too if your local has it however be aware that the Denon AVRX540BT only supports HDR and HDCP 2.2 on three of the inputs, this Yamaha RXV383 or the Pioneer VSX531 which I also looked at support it on all four inputs.

Sell them. The classifieds section at the avforums is a great place to do so in the UK. If you are just going to bin it anyway I'm sure you'll find someone happy to come take it off your hands.
