The Yamaha RX-V485 is a great way to go if you like the idea of wireless surround speakers and don’t mind using 5.1-channels – but, if you need Google Cast or more channels, there are other options in the price range.

I am happy with the sound. I am interested in a "home stereo" application, so I can't say much about the surround sound aspect. It was fairly painless to setup, except to connect to my wireless network I had to use my tv and the supplied remote to view the setup menu.

    Required a tv to complete setup.

I purchased this surround sound receiver to replace a much older - and heavier - Yamaha receiver.I wanted the newer options provided on the RX-V485, especially the Wi-Fi capabilities. Very satisfied!

This receiver exceeded my expectations for such a low price. Bluetooth capability is a nice feature. Setup is pretty easy IF you download the full owner's manual. The sound is great. I really like the sound field effects.

Very nice. I replaced an older Yamaha receiver with this one. Got more capability (wi-fi and bluetooth) than the old one for $200 less than I paid 10 years ago.

Sounds great, easy to setup and use, nice features/pre-sets, great remote. Overall, a great value for the price. I love having bluetooth capability. The other feature I like is when you change the inout, the receiver remembers the last setting you used for that input.

I bought the RX-V485 because it supports wireless rear speakers - our new house has hardwood floors which don't lend themselves to long cable runs. It replaces a Yamaha RX V1087 (which doesn't) so is much "lower down" the Yamaha range so I was expecting a corresponding drop in quality, but have been...

Really happy with my Amp as a beginner to the music system world it’s been a great start. The amp was easy to set up. Looking forward to building my system
