Cinema Surround Sound.


This unique Yamaha proprietary sound field creation technology, was created by combining measured sound field data with digital signal processing. Yamaha collected sound field data from famous concert halls and music clubs around the world, utilising its wealth of experience in the fields of concert hall design, public address and mixing. By digitizing that vast trove of information and incorporating it into dedicated LSI devices, it effectively reproduces the spaces of those concert halls on home equipment. Immerse yourself in the astounding realism of your movies, and enter a world of profound theatre sound.


    YPAO (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer) analyses the room acoustics and your system, then precisely adjusts various audio parameters to provide the best sound for your room. Simply by placing the supplied microphone at your listening position and switching YPAO on, the system is automatically tuned for optimum performance in your home theatre room.

      High-quality Parts

      Yamaha AV receivers feature fully discrete power amplifiers to minimise distortion and adopt independent pure power supplies for the analogue and digital circuitry. They also feature ultra-high performance with 384 kHz / 32-bit DACs, also with Independent power supplies, for reproducing absolutely all the audio in High Resolution sound sources without noise. A new high sound quality IC is employed for volume control and large heat sinks suppress vibration. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.

        A World of Entertainment.

        Wireless Surround Speakers

        Combine this AV receiver with the MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless streaming speaker and enjoy the amazing convenience of creating a home theatre with wireless rear speakers. What’s more, you get stunningly realistic sound with a clean, clutter-free setup. Easily turn your current living room into a special entertainment environment where you can fully enjoy movies and music.


        MusicCast takes the headache out of multi-room audio. Simply connect all MusicCast devices to the same network and start sharing audio throughout the home. Take MusicCast for a test drive by downloading the free MusicCast app and using it demo mode.

        Streaming Services

        Explore a world of music with music streaming services* built-in. Syncing your playlists and song likes from your smart phone or computer to the RX-V485, music streaming services make it impossibly easy to either listen to your faves or discover new music.

        * Music streaming service availability varies by region.

          Virtual Presence Speaker

          CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field, while HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Moreover, the Virtual Presence Speaker function delivers three-dimensional sound without the actual use of presence speakers — giving you a rich sound field virtually equivalent to 7.1-channel surround, even with a 5.1-speaker configuration.

            Intuitively Simple to Use.

            Alexa on MusicCast

            “Alexa, ask MusicCast to play Favourite 1 in the Kitchen.” With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. The RX-V485 name offers full compatibility with Amazon’s range of voice control devices. Welcome to the smart home.

                  Even Higher Quality Sound

                  Bi-amp Connection

                  This AV receiver features bi-amping capability, driving the treble and bass ranges of the front speakers (L, R) with independent amplifiers. In addition to providing greater power, it also prevents interference between the high and low sounds, further improving the sound of the front speakers.

                  Brilliant and Lively

                  Music Enhancer

                  The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimised for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, energetic sound quality during wireless playback.

                  High Definition, Comfortable Viewing

                  Up to 90 Day Returns!

                  Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

                  Changing your Mind
                  It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.


                  How we Handle Returns
                  Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:


                  This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

                  Credit Note
                  This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

                  This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

                  25% Restocking Fee
                  If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

                  Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.

                  To complete your order please call us
