"Powerful versatility makes this affordable Aventage AV receiver stand out. Yamaha's most affordable Aventage receiver proves remarkably easy to set up and calibrate, then delivering enjoyable and upgradeable sound for music."
"This first taste of the new Aventage range proved a great success. The new fascia design and remote control soften its physical presence; the codec support for both music and movie soundtracks is comprehensive up to Atmos and DTS:X. It provides its own sources via DAB+ and FM tuners, plus all the streaming abilities of MusicCast."
"Best of all the Aventage RX-A2A proved remarkably easy to set up and calibrate once the fiddly cable-attaching session is complete, then delivering enjoyable and upgradeable sound for music, and that immersive soundfield for seven-channel movie listening with enough power to satisfyingly drive speakers of mid to high sensitivity in all but the largest of cinema rooms."
AVENTAGE AV receivers are the reference standard to which all others are compared. Passionate engineering and meticulous attention to detail produces the Yamaha hallmark of True Sound. You can feel the quality in the design and fabrication – from every electrical path, component and piece of material. Each element was scrutinized with intense detail to produce the finest, first-class performance. The AVENTAGE AV receiver is a work of visual and acoustic art.
For those without in-ceiling or upward-firing speakers in their system, Dolby Atmos with Height Virtualization Technology simulates the Atmos experience with forward facing-drivers. Configure up to five speakers to replicate the effect of two in-ceiling speakers, or utilize all seven channels to simulate the powerful effect of four overhead speakers.
Feel every dimension in Dolby Atmos. Enjoy a 5.1 surround speaker system and two additional overhead speakers or two Dolby Atmos elevation speakers, delivering dramatic overhead effects for truly enveloping audio – including Dolby Surround upmixer for legacy content.
DTS:X immersive audio formatting places sound where it would naturally occur in space, creating life-like, multi-dimensional audio. The included spatial remapping engine of DTS Neural:X offers improved immersion and heightened realism in all your favourite movies.
4K/120Hz enables ultra-fast motion UHD images to be crisp and razor-sharp; allowing high-performance gaming, sport and action movies to benefit significantly.
HDR10+ signals not only dynamic range (the ratio of light to dark) of video content on a scene-by-scene (or even frame-by-frame) basis, it also provides, in a small amount of metadata, the scene characteristics between bright and dark so that important detail can remain. This enables displays to reproduce images more realistically, adhering to the creator’s intent.
Enhanced gaming and media features ensure an added level of smooth and seamless motion and transitions for gaming, movies and video. They include: Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) allows enables the ideal latency setting to automatically be set allowing for smooth, lag-free and uninterrupted viewing and interactivity. Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) reduces or eliminates lag, stutter and frame tearing for more fluid and detailed gameplay. Quick Media Switching (QMS) for movies and video eliminates the delay that can result in blank frames before the picture is displayed. Quick Frame Transport (QFT) reduces latency for smoother no-lag gaming and real-time interactive virtual reality.

When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.
This AV receiver provides dedicated phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection.
Precise signal transmission, especially suitable for a high-resolution audio signal. Generally, high slew rate amplifier causes unstable signal transmission, Yamaha’s newly design circuit achieves a high slew rate with stable signal transmission.

The Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge is a fifth foot in the centre of the chassis unit base. It dampens vibrations from the power transformer, power transistors and heat sinks, as well as vibrations that might be caused by the sound from the speakers — providing dynamic sound and focused, accurate reproduction.
Yamaha's detail in design and craftsmanship produces a work of visual and acoustic art. The immaculate chassis construction further solidifies the alignment of stability in performance. A beautiful form that deepens the AVENTAGE uniqueness and continues to further enhance key acoustic authority.

There are four SCENE buttons. You can preset them for different inputs, as well as a sound field program, Music Enhancer, HDMI output and more. The inputs can be set to specific sources, such as an FM or Internet radio station, a station on a streaming service, a USB device or a song on a PC or NAS (network). Once you have set the buttons, simply press one on the main unit or the remote control to power on the receiver and hear your desired music. The buttons can be re-set at any time.
No worries, no confusion. Use this special app to receive expert set up assistance for your AV receiver and source devices. It even guides you through various other settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amplifier assignments.
