Thrilling Realism in Surround Sound

This AV receiver supports Dolby Atmos and DTS-X playback with CINEMA DSP HD3, taking the surround sound experience to new heights. The revamped CINEMA DSP HD3 features new signal processing algorithms and three sets of high performance processors. This maximises theatre sound effects, accurately reproducing a new dimension of realism for a sound field with a rich sense of presence and no feeling of boundaries. You will experience a realistic cinema sound field with the sense of truly being immersed in the movie scene.





Your Cinema - Surround:AI

The AI technology built into the DSP analyses the scene of the entertainment content and then creates the optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the greatest effect. This AI instantaneously analyses scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds and sound effects, and automatically optimises the surround effect in real time, just as if a Yamaha sound engineer tunes the best sound specifically for you. This creates a compelling sense of realism with expressive power beyond conventional sound field effects, giving you the most profound entertainment experience possible.

For Sound Purity - Highly Rigid Construction

The RX-V1085 AV receiver features a sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminium front panel. Even more importantly, the unit is exceptionally sturdy, with an interior reinforced with cross members in an H shape and symmetrical power amplifier layout. These ensure that installation stability is improved and chassis resonance is dispersed, effectively eliminating external vibration, maintaining the highest audio quality.








Optimum Performance - High Quality Parts

Every single part in an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For the RX-V1085, extra time is taken to carefully select the most exacting, high-quality parts - including a large-capacity power amplifier unit with damping heat sink, a custom large power transformer, high-performance DSP devices, and so on - in order to achieve the highest performance possible. Moreover, sound technicians employ rigorous testing processes to optimally "tune" the receiver’s sound.

Professional Grade - ESS SABRE™ ES9007S Premier DAC

Incorporating the SABRE ES9007S Premier Audio DAC from ESS Technology to achieve an exceptionally good signal-to-noise ratio and up to 120 dB of dynamic range, this AV receiver produces professional quality digital audio.





MusicCast - Multi-room Audio

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 its demo mode.

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-V1085 offers full compatibility with Amazon's range of voice control devices (sold separately). Welcome to the smart home.

* Availability of voice command control via Amazon Alexa varies by region.

Free and Easy Placement - Wireless Surround Speakers

Combine this AV receiver with MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless streaming speakers (sold separately) and enjoy the amazing convenience of creating a home theatre with wireless rear surround 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.












You can transmit the video or audio content to a TV or home theatre system in another room (Zone 2) via HDMI. This lets you enjoy viewing and listening to the same main room content (where the AV receiver is installed), or even different content.

Convenient Enjoyment - Three HDMI Outputs

Since the RX-V1085 has three HDMI output terminals, simultaneous connection to the TV, LCD projector and other devices, is possible. Which means, for example, that you can use your TV as usual but use the projector for your favourite movies and special programming, or have the same main room content shown in other rooms as well - easily and without having to change any connections. Naturally, the built-in HDMI functionality is of the latest specifications, corresponding also to HDR (Dolby Vision Compatible, Hybrid Log-Gamma), 4K / 60p passthrough, 4K upscaling, and so on.

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.

 





Professional-grade Sound Optimisation

YPAO-R.S.C. (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer - Reflected Sound Control) analyses room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections and deliver studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalisation, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system, creating an ideal listening space with perfectly balanced sound.

You can add an external power amplifier (pre-main amplifier) to this AV receiver to improve and enhance the sound of your speakers. For example, using a power amplifier to drive the important front channel in home theatre gives you the added flexibility of building a system with an emphasis on sound quality.

A World of Music - 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-V2085, music streaming services make it impossibly easy to either listen to your faves or discover new music.

* Music streaming service availability varies by region.

 





Easy Operation, Detailed Settings - AV Controller App

This easy-to-use app lets you conveniently and 'smartly' control your AV receiver's power, volume, input selections, DSP modes - and much, much more - from an iOS or Android device. You can also use as many as 23 different languages and customise the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.

Install with Ease - AV Setup Guide

No worries, no confusion. Use this special app and get expert assistance with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices. It even guides you through various other settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amplifier assignments.

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.

Eco Mode - Save Energy by 20%

When ECO Mode is turned on it can reduce power consumption by about 20 percent*, thanks to an advanced energy saving design. *Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
