YHT-4920UBL Features

Bluetooth® Compatible for Wireless Music Streaming

The YHT-4920UBL is equipped with Bluetooth® functionality to let you easily enjoy wireless music playback from smartphones and other devices. The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimized for Bluetooth® audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, lively sound quality during wireless playback.


Compressed Music Enhancer


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

4K Ultra HD Pass-through with HDCP 2.2

This system supports the latest HDMI® standards thanks to the transmission of 4K video at 60 frames per second (pass-through only). Fully enjoy the high definition video quality of 4K without degradation along with HDCP 2.2 that fully complies with the latest copyright protection, a standard for 4K video transmission.


The YHT-4920UBL is equipped with YPAO™ Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Set Up


YPAO™ (Yamaha Parametric Acoustic Optimizer) analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes ensuring that the listening area is tuned to provide the best audio experience possible.

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

As an alternate setup configuration, Virtual CINEMA FRONT in the YHT-4920UBL allows you to install all of the speakers at the front and enjoy virtual 5.1-channel surround sound when rear speaker placement is not possible.


Extra Bass Provides Rich Bass Reproduction, Even with Small Speakers

This exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you would expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localization 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.


HD Audio with CINEMA DSP


Enjoy HD Audio sources with CINEMA DSP and experience a sound field that allows you to transform the dynamics of the listening environment with the acoustics of famous venues from all around the world.

Discrete Amp Configuration for High Sound Quality


This home theater system was designed with a strong focus on achieving a high level of sound clarity. It employs a discrete amplifier configuration and a low-jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance.

HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel


The YHT-4920UBL supports 3D video signals. Additionally, the Audio Return Channel function enables audio to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable.

SCENE for One-touch Start


Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.

HDMI CEC for Easy Operation


Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, the receiver will turn on and off together with the TV and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver’s remote control to command source players with functions like skip, play and pause. 

*All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible 
TVs / players may not work.

Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging


The Subwoofer Trim Control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused soundstage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is “pushed” toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim Control takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.

AV SETUP GUIDE for Easier Installation


The AV SETUP GUIDE makes it much easier to perform the set up process. This app assists you with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices. Additionally, it guides you through various settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amplifier assignments. System illustrations and actual AV receiver images help you understand how to make the connections between devices. It is available in multiple languages and is designed for iOS and Android™ tablets.

ECO Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20%*


When ECO mode is turned on it can reduce power consumption by about 20 percent. 

*Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).

Selectable Auto Power Standby


Auto Power Standby lets you save energy by automatically turning off the receiver's power after 20 minutes, two, four, eight or 12 hours.
