|The RX-V995 is a 5-channel receiver providing finest performance and processing available for music and video sound. Discrete power transistors rather than IC chips are used in the amplifier section to provide the cleanest sound possible. The amp delivers 100 watts each to the five channels. The new Dolby Digital and DTS systems are fully discrete providing six channels of sound. Five are full-frequency channels, and the sixth is a low frequency effects channel. Dolby Digital is available on DVD and laserdisc. DTS is available on DVD, LD, and CD. The RX-V995 is prepared for the future. It has back-panel inputs to accommodate a third 5.1-channel system, should one be developed, or a decoder for the new DVD Audio standard. Yamaha has designed and employed a new IC chip - YSS-918 - that handles Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, as well as Yamaha's Digital Sound Field Processing, Cinema DSP, and Tri-Field Processing. Yamaha's exclusive Digital Sound Field Processing for music recreates the acoustic personalities of actual concert halls and other venues. On-Screen Display With Speaker Test Mode allows you to easily establish, change, and adjust settings from across the room. The on-screen display gives you a visual readout of the receiver's settings on your TV or monitor screen. The on-screen speaker test mode makes it easier to balance speaker output from your listening position. Second zone rear panel audio and video outputs, and separate power control make the receiver ideal for custom installation applications. The advanced remote control with the RX-V995 has learning capability and can be programmed for up to 13 macros, so it can perform a sequence of functions at the touch of a single button. And the remote control can adjust the subwoofer volume.The RX-V995 is a versatile receiver incorporating three sets of audio-only inputs and 5 pairs of A/V inputs. Four sources have digital input capability, and two of these have a choice of either optical or coaxial digital inputs. All A/V sources have an S-video input. Yamaha's famed low impedance drive circuitry is included in this receiver so that it can handle virtually all loads and a wide variety of speakers. For further speaker matching, the amplifier can be set for either 4 or 8-ohm speakers. Record Out Selector allows you to listen to one source and record another. Up to 40 preset AM and FM stations can be grouped in five groups eight stations. These groupings make it easy for family members to easily access their favorite stations or to have musical genres, such as all the jazz stations, grouped together. Yamaha's heavy-duty binding post speaker terminals accept banana plugs, spade connectors, and a variety of speaker wire, including heavy gauge cable.|

I auditioned many amplifiers out there at the local Audio Stores like Circuit City, Best Buy, Frys Electronics, Ultimate Electronics, the only HT receiver I found that really Impressed was a $1200 Onkyo,, I then found this Yamaha at a Audio shop that sells fix and repair,, I listened to it with every speaker they had and it blew away most of their vintage equipment and everything else out there except the Yamaha RX-V2400,, I then went and bought the 995 on ebay in mint condition for $125.00,,, Coupled with my Yamaha CDC 815 CD Player, Yamaha TX-950 Tuner, and Klipsch Synergy F2 speakers,, well there is no need for a sub,, the sound is superb on low, mid, high, clean sound, detailed mids, highs crisp and clean,,, bass strong and powerfull, the bass extension and tone controls are not needed, tone bypass is all you need,, just play the music or movies straight up through the amps and you will be blown away,, the 995 uses discrete output stage,, thats what Yamaha used in the 70's, but quit using in the 80's and 90's until they came out with the RX-v795, 995, and DSP A-1, and now the RX-V 1400, 2400, all models that can only be purchased at HI FI stores,, the Yamaha RX-V995 is an excellent value for the money,,, your movies have never sounded so good, the 5.1 format on this unit will blow away most 7.1 formats out there today,, so dont be bashful, go buy one of these 995 units and you will love it,,,
I've had this receiver since 2001 and it is a great powerhouse and workhorse for a mass market, consumer machine. This was one of their top of the line moedls and it still amazes me with how clean it makes my Klipsch-RF3 towers sound when listening to cds or watching Star Wars. Great solid build and archetecture. DSPs are decent for the most part and you'll soon find which ones you like or dislike. DITCH THE SWING DOOR REMOTE AND PICK UP SOMETHING ELSE TO HANDLE IT'S MOST USED FUNCTIONS. The shear multitude of buttons requires an engineer to present during operation.
Other than that this is a solid performer that can be found for $150-$250ish when in mint condition. It originaly sold for $999.00-$1,200 when first intro'd.
Just a superb value.
In the day this unit came out, it list for about $999.00. That was a few years ago. The unit has all options that I can see except XR radio of which I don't need. I got it from a great seller for $125.00 and I sure enjoy it. Yamaha makes very good equipment. It has so many options, I may never use half of them. It has 5 channels at 100 watts per channel also connections for a power active subwoffer.
This is a great stereo with lots of power.
100watts by 5 channels. Its has tons of inputs and outputs.
One of the best features is that it has AMP outputs to connect the unit to a larger seperate AMP and you can use it as a PREAMP which is very nice!
At the tiime these were being sold, I could not afford one. Had recently been through a divorce and was basically starting over. Ended up wiith a lessor model Yahama and loved it but always wanted a top of the line unit. About fiive months ago i found one on ebay and could not beleive it was selling for the price asked. Went for it and got it. Hooked it up immediately and went iiinto awe. This thing will blow away almost any 7.1 unit I have heard and considered buying. So pleased wiith it and the selling prices I have bought two more from e-bay sellers. Have a unniit nooow on every floor of my residence. Two in home theater systems and one in the basement to use in my exercise and sauna area. Anyone that buys one of these should be as pleased as I am to have it. They do not make them like this any longer. New is not always better!
