Yamaha’s discovered a surprising fact about how consumers setup their home theaters. It turns out that most of us don’t put our speakers in ideal locations (surprise, surprise). The truth is finding a place to put all of the speakers in a 5.1 setup can pose a multitude of logistical challenges. Yamaha aims to solve this dilemma with their latest av receiver, the Yamaha RX V377.


The Yamaha RX V377 utilizes a new feature that Yamaha calls virtual cinema frontvirtual cinema front. Essentially this allows users to place all 5 of their speakers in the front of the room and the 377 creates virtual surround channels in the back. Although it’s doubtful this will be as good as a true surround system with well placed speakers, it should give listeners a variety of placement options.


The 377 which is rated at 100 watts per channel, also includes a bevy of other features including 4K Ultra HD passthrough and audio return channel. It also decodes numerous HD codecs such as Dolby True HD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. As far as connectivity is concerned, the most notable are the 4 HDMI inputs and the front USB input which is ideal for iPods and/or iPhones. The Yamaha RX V377 is available now at a suggested retail price of $299.
