Howdy,

I am a vinyl lover looking for an AV receiver. I already have a decent preamp. I'm wondering if this receiver has the option to play my vinyl records (analog) without digital processing of the analog source. I guess I don't understand what "Direct Mode" or "Straight Decode" mean. Any insight or other recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the awesome review!

 

No. But the 475 can.

Hello! Please help me sort this out. I cannot play my audio cds and files if my TV is not switched on.

 

Details: My Yamaha RX V375 set up is as follows: Blue Ray to HDMI1, DVD to HDMI2, Cable Box to HDMI3 and TV AV Out to  Yamaha Audio1. Yamaha HDMI Out is connected to  TV HDMI In.

 

If the TV is on, I can play DVD, BlueRay and WD Audio alright BUT if I switch the TV off while any of these players are at work, the audio stops. If I play DVD, BlueRay or WD with the TV initially off, no audio comes out until I pull the HDMI OUT plug off from the Yamaha Receiver.

 

Kindly tell me what is wrong. Thank you.

Audio only over HDMI, as you've discovered, doesn't work.

Make a 2nd audio only connection.

I would use the DVD player, since it more likely has a secondary audio connection (coax digital, optical, or analog).

Hoping for some help.  My RX-V375 is running my living room surround sound.  I just added an in-ground pool to my back yard and now have exterior speakers.  Is there a way to incorporate my outdoor speakers to this receiver?  The kicker is that I would want to choose to use interior and external speakers together or only one at a time.  (Maybe some kind of switch).

 

Thanks your time.

 

Matt

Yep, a speaker switch.
