New Yamaha app gives greater AV, media control

Yamaha unveils its AV Controller 2.0 app, designed to let users control its receivers and Blu-ray players wirelessly and stream music to them.


Yamaha has unveiled its AV Controller App 2.0 for Android and iOS devices. The app is designed to let users not only control Yamaha receivers and Blu-ray players wirelessly but also stream music to them via DLNA and from a mobile device.

The new app also offers multizone functionality, enabling users to control music in any zone, in addition to system functions such as power, source selection, zones, DSP, and volume.

The app lets users select computers and/or NAS devices from a source list, browse the media contained on them, and stream that media to a receiver. Yamaha also says the app lets people stream music, including Apple Lossless, from an iOS device to the receiver without the use of Apple AirPlay. Users can also stream music from an Android device directly to the receiver.

Supported devices are the RX-A3010, RX-A2010, RX-A1010, RX-A810, RX-A710, RX-V871, RX-V671, RX-A3000, RX-A2000, RX-A1000, RX-V867, RX-V2065, RX-V3900 and RX-Z7 receivers, and the BD-A1010, BD-S671 and BD-A1000 Blu-ray players.
