Sony vs Yamaha – gigantic Japanese conglomerates

A Sony vs Yamaha comparison it is an opposition of two very similar stories on success – a gradual development from a small company to a giant of an industry. Sony started with repairing of domestic electronic tools and came to robotic dogs’ production. Yamaha was intended as a repair company of organs and became related to film and game industries as well as motorbike one. To compare Yamaha vs Sony means to trace the expansion of Japanese brands far beyond the borders of the country and imagination: Sony was the first Japanese company that offered shares in the US, while Yamaha introduced the world's first CD recorder.

Sony – domestic electronics oriented company

Sony

Sony developed from an electronics repair shop started by Masaru Ibuka in 1946 in the bombarded Tokyo with 8 employees. Soon afterwards, he was joined by a friend of his and a Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo (TTEC) company was founded. It produced mainly home targeted goods. In the early 1950s, Sony went on the new level with the invention of the first Japanese tape recorder- Type G. It followed by Japan’s first transistor radio, Trinitron color television, Walkman personal stereo, PlayStation, and Blu-ray Disc recorder. With a TR-63 portable radio invention, a broad recognition came. It proved a label ‘made in Japan’ to be a sign of quality.

Nowadays, Sony includes Sony Corporation, Sony Computer Entertainment, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Sony Music Entertainment, Sony Music Publishing, and Sony Financial Holdings.

In terms of receivers’ models, Sony possesses 8 STR of them: DH 510 - 810, DN 1010, DN 2010, DA3600ES, DA5600ES in a price range from $230 up to $2040. Even the cheapest one has the three HDMI 1.4 inputs, one out, the HDMI 1.4 specification; a signal goes through the TV with the turned off device; ability to decode LPCM audio from a Blu-ray player. In addition, the one in the more expensive range has the HDMI 1.4 − 6-in/2-out; the advanced Graphical user interface and auto room calibration system.

Yamaha – gradual development through years

Yamaha

The story of Yamaha origin dated back to the year 1889, when the Nippon Gakki Company (“Japan Musical Instrument Company”) was erected. It produced 250 portable reed organs per year and involved 100 workers.

Torakusu Yamaha, the founder of the company, had already a couple of years been studying the technique of musical tuning and for the next development went to the USA to get the skill of pianos manufacturing. Consequently, after his return, Nippon Gakki started to release pianos (today, it’s the leader in this area) and harmonicas and exporting them around the globe.

The extension of the product range commenced expanding massively. It resulted in the subsidiary company of motorbikes production. The conglomerate manufactures a wide range of electronics at factories in Kakegawa, Toyooka, and Tenryu.

The Yamaha International Corporation was founded in 1960 by Nippon Gakki and became the largest producer of musical instruments, AV receivers, computer elements, machine tools and even industrial robots.

Speaking about receivers, the most known are R and RX. They are both bestowed with stereo sound and Bluetooth. RX-V777BT in particular, streams on a projector and the TV. RX-V has Wireless Surround Sound, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio. Also, there are the HDMI ports for HDR 10, Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma, and BT.2020 WCG compatibility. To its 100-year anniversary, Yamaha released "10000 Series" with the HCA, CD, and DAT that overcame a previous A-2000.
