5.1-channel powerful and stylish surround system

The AV receiver ensures that action movies with loud, dynamic soundtracks will be heard in spectacularly realistic surround sound. The front, surround and centre speakers are high quality models capable of reproducing high definition audio, and the subwoofer uses Yamaha’s exclusive Advanced YST technology to deliver clean, crisply powerful bass. Rounded corners give the speakers a stylish appearance.

Virtual CINEMA FRONT Provides Virtual 5-channel Surround Sound with High Quality and Resolution

Even when it is impossible to install surround speakers behind the listening position, Virtual CINEMA DSP reproduces virtual 5-channel surround sound filled with realism, with only two front speakers. With Virtual CINEMA FRONT, you will enjoy virtual 5-channel surround sound with higher quality and resolution by installing surround speakers at the front. You get more flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.

HD Audio with CINEMA DSP

The receiver is capable of decoding the latest HD audio formats, which can be enjoyed together with CINEMA DSP surround sound programmes, for natural and expansive sound imaging.

Extra Bass Provides Rich Bass Reproduction, Even with Small Speakers

Yamaha’ s exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localisation and sound balance even with compact front speakers. When a subwoofer is used, it improves the volume of the entire low range of the speaker system, not only the front speakers, but also enhancing the bass from the subwoofer. You’ll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.

Discrete Amp Configuration for High Clarity Audio Performance

The AV receiver was designed with a strong focus on achieving exceptionally high sound clarity. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance.

Advanced YST for Awesome Deep Bass

Yamaha’s exclusive Advanced Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) generates incredible bass from small speaker enclosures. Advanced YST is the ideal method of combining amplifiers and speakers for maximum performance. This system’s advanced negative impedance converter intelligently adjust the negative impedance generation as the speaker moves, creating a hard, rigid cone that prevents deep resonant waves from leaking out of the speaker cone. This means the full power of the waves is forced out through the air port, resulting in clear, powerful bass.

4K Ultra HD pass-through for super high resolution images

This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI features including pass-through of 4K Ultra HD, which is gaining popularity. 4K Ultra HD refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K Ultra HD data from the source to the monitor, for image clarity far beyond present standards.

HDMI (4 in / 1 out) with 3D and Audio Return Channel

Four HDMI terminals provide convenient one-cable connection of various HD digital sources. HDMI also offers two special features: 3D for 3D video signals and Audio Return Channel.

USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel

A USB port on the front panel provides convenient connection for your iPod / iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod / iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV Receiver, noise interference is minimised and sound quality is much better.

USB Port for Direct Access to MP3 or WMA Tracks on USB Devices

The USB port on the front panel allows quick and easy connection of USB storage devices, for immediate enjoyment of MP3 and WMA tracks.

Compressed Music Enhancer


When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.

YPAO for Automatic Speaker Setup

The YHT-2910 uses Yamaha’s YPAO system that quickly and automatically analyses the acoustics of the room and adjusts various speaker parameters to provide the optimum sound at the listening position. It’s like having a professional audio engineer set up and tweak your system.

SCENE for Easy One-Touch Operation

Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for BD / DVD Movie Viewing, TV Viewing, CD Listening and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button turns on the power, selects the input source and assigns the optimum DSP mode for that source.

OSD with Colour Icons

The YHT-2910 features Yamaha’s latest on-screen display, which provides colour icons for quick identification. Menus can be viewed in English, German, French, Spanish, Russian Italian, Japanese or Chinese. In addition, menus can be overlaid over the image.

Curvy Design for Chic Interiors

The surround speakers have a curved shape that blends nicely with any interior. They are just the right size for good sound quality and convenient placement in almost any location.

ECO mode lowers power consumption by 20%*

Yamaha’s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set easily from the top of the OSD menu.
* Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).

Auto Power Down


Auto Power Down after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours (selectable) and extremely low power consumption make this an environmentally friendly receiver.
