Yamaha RX-V2085 review & specs

Yamaha RX-V2085 is a manageable device for 3 zones

Yamaha RX-V2085

A Yamaha RX-V2085 review shows me that such a high-level device can propose deep color, clean sound, and accessibility to the mentioned below services. It quickly reacts on all the operations and doesn’t become frozen even after the great pressure in unfavorable conditions (86 degrees Fahrenheit).

Design

The receiver has a very solid and masculine design with an aluminum front panel that hides many inputs and outputs. Only volume and input controllers are in a plain view, but they do not spoil the whole aesthetic picture. Due to the cross members in an H shape, the device is very sturdy. The symmetrical power amplifier layout also helps eliminate the vibration. The box doesn’t overheat and the reason for it is a special lattice surface.

Characteristics

56 preset FM/AM stations are enough for everyday listening. The display shows the most important information, including station name and music genre. Due to the 3-zone capability, the device can sound amazing even in a few rooms. Moreover, such a feature creates the feeling that all spaces are part of a holistic object with a solid sound. The AI technology adds some sound effects. A simple movie watching transforms into a real adventure with an incredible absorbing tone. A MusicCast can spread the music throughout the house and perform it without problems and disruptions.

Performance

Popular music services (Pandora, Spotify, and Tidal) perfectly connect with my smartphone, but they totally refuse to cooperate with PC. Alexa allows using voice to control all the basic functions. Such a part of a smart home is very useful and correctly understands all the commands. The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth perform their task greatly. I can control the Yamaha RX-V2085 even being outside the house and such a big range is awesome.

Sound Quality

The sound quality is great, but sometimes it appears a strange rhythmic beeping that annoys. Such a problem comes while listening to the radio or music with very high notes (opera, jazz). Moreover, I start to notice the disharmony between the picture motion and sound. Sometimes the action is much quicker than the sound.

Connectivity

The photo input works perfectly. It easily connects with my turntable and reproduces the classic sound. The unit has 7 AV inputs greatly perform their task. 3 HDMI outputs are enough for many operations and I have to mention the presence of 1 USB that can be useful for installation.

Setup

With the help of a YPAO R.S.C. the setting process is very easy. Such a feature analyses the situation in a room and adopts the whole system to the new conditions. The process goes without my intervention and all I have to do is enjoying the result. The special Setup Guide application has a lot of useful information and describes all the steps in details with system illustrations.

Conclusion

Great Yamaha RX-V2085 specs indicate that the device is worthy of attention. It presents the access to most modern services and surprises with perfect work of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Of course, some sound problems create a not very pleasant impression, but the great assembly quality and other positive moments fix it.
