The Yamaha HTR-5063 is a mid-range A/V receiver similar to the Yamaha HTR-4063. The main improvement that the HTR-5063 can boast over the HTR-4063 is its 7.1 channel audio (as opposed to the HTR-4063's 5.1 channels). Otherwise, the HTR-5063 sports all of the same features as the HTR-4063, including Audio Return Channel and 3D media capability over HDMI 1.4a, YPAO Automatic System Calibration and Dolby TrueHD audio reproduction.

The HTR-5063's HDMI 1.4a ports support both 3D media (from one 3D capable device to another) as well as Audio Return Channel which allows for two-way audio transfer as well as one way video, eliminating the need for an S/PDIF cable for your HDTV. Its YPAO Automatic System Calibration allows the HTR-5063 to detect in-room acoustics by way of a tiny microphone and automatically adjust sound levels to achieve perfect audio, no matter the speaker setup. Additionally, the HTR-5063's Dolby TrueHD audio reproduction allows for superior, lossless playback quality of Blu-Ray disc audio.

Features

  • 7.1 channel surround sound compatibility
  • 3D media, Audio Return Channel compatible via HDMI 1.4a
  • 4 HDMI inputs/1 output; 2 component video inputs/1 output
  • Dolby TrueHD lossless audio reproduction
  • Optional iPod dock; optional Bluetooth compatibility
  • YPAO Automatic System Calibration
  • Front panel mini jack input for connecting portable audio player

BTW, was having issues with w/ quality of XBOX 360 and PS3 w/o the use of the Yamaha 5063; with it, both work amazingly, getting to see full HDMI in all its glory...Awesome buy. Got it at Costco for $329.

What are some good speaker combinationsfor the HTR-5063? Lookin to upgrade incumbents, lol. About 10 year old mini-speakers, want to take advantage of new sound without breaking the bank...

Anyone know how to listen to a different audio source (say music on my iphone or ipod connected via the YDS-12 dock) while watching video from my HD Dish network reciever...such as basketball game or anything else on TV?
I'm using the HTR-5063, Sony HD tv, Sony blu-ray, dish network HD w/ HDMI.
Thanks!
