Yamaha HTiB Systems Deliver Value Without Compromise; Full 4K Ultra HD Compatibility and Bluetooth® Convenience

Systems offer great performance and convenience to movie and music fans

BUENA PARK, Calif. May 28, 2015

Yamaha today introduced three home-theater-in-a-box (HTiB) systems that represent a formidable combination of performance, convenience and value for home entertainment, movie and music fans.

This line of 5.1-channel systems, which include the YHT-3920UBL, YHT-4920UBL and YHT-5920UBL models, are anchored by high performance Yamaha AV receivers that drive the included five speakers (right, left and center in front, plus right and left in the rear) and powered 100-watt subwoofer. Bluetooth enables seamless wireless music playback, while 4K Ultra HD pass-through with HDCP 2.2 enables the enjoyment of super-high resolution video without limits.

The top-of-the-line YHT-5920UBL system features a network AV receiver for comprehensive connectivity to home components, devices, and Internet music services, as well as control via Yamaha's free AV Controller App for Apple iOS and Android devices.

"HTiB systems are a convenient way to get true theater-style surround sound and ours go the extra mile, providing the latest features like Bluetooth and 4K Ultra HD video support for a wider selection of home entertainment options," said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV Division, Yamaha Corporation of America. "The speakers that come with these systems are acoustically matched to optimize sound quality so that you get the best home theater experience."

YHT-5920UBL Sits at the Front of the Class

The top-of-the line YHT-5920UBL features a surprisingly wide array of listening options through built-in Wi-Fi, AirPlay, vTuner Internet radio and compatibility with Pandora and Spotify music streaming services. This system can also playback high-resolution audio, including 192 kHz / 24-bit FLAC, WAV or AIFF files, as well as content in Apple Lossless and DSD formats (2.8 MHz / 5.6 MHz), from networked components, PCs or via USB. This system also comes with an attractive and compact, high-gloss speaker package that will add an air of style and sophistication to any room.

The YHT-5920UBL, YHT-4920UBL and YHT-3920UBL are compatible with 4K Ultra HD at 60p 4:2:0 and their support of HDCP 2.2 enables them to work with copy protected 4K media streaming devices and future Blu-ray Dis players. They also include Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio HD Audio format decoding and Yamaha's exclusive YPAO automatic calibration system to optimize speaker output for the best possible listening experiences.

All models integrate Yamaha's exclusive Compressed Music Enhancer that is optimized to effectively reproduce vivid and lively sound from music streamed from smartphones and other devices via Bluetooth.

When users are not able to place all five speakers in the traditional surround speaker setup, Yamaha's exclusive Virtual CINEMA FRONT technology allows for the placement of all five speakers at the front of the listening area to achieve convincing surround sound performance.
