AVENTAGE AV Receivers: Designed to Deliver the Highest Levels of Audio Performance

The AVENTAGE line of high-performance AV receivers is based on the audio design concept of providing a massive, full-bodied sound for movie sound effects and the accurate reproduction of music sources. By expertly harmonising traditional and advanced technologies, every factor that affects sound quality, from materials and parts to construction, layout, vibration damping (unique foot) and “fine-tuning” the sound, is handled with no other thought than to achieve the best possible audio quality. As a result, every AVENTAGE model has the ability to reproduce the most subtle details of high-definition sound, so that listeners can enjoy a truly high-class sound studio experience at home.

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.

Yamaha has launched a new AV receiver, and with its gaming-skewed feature set, it could just be the ideal partner to a PS5 or Xbox Series X.

"First off, the RX-A2A – which is one of Yamaha's higher-end, Aventage models – supports 4K at 120Hz, making games look smoother than ever. Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) are also supported – the former dynamically adjusts the frame rate depending on the on-screen action, optimising the visual movement, while the latter ensures that your TV's lag-reducing Game Mode is automatically selected when required.
Quick Media Switching (QMS) makes for delay-free switching between films and games, while Quick Frame Transport (QFT) reduces latency for even smoother, no-lag gaming, and real-time interactive virtual reality."
- What Hi-Fi?

 

Dolby Atmos with Height Virtualizer

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

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

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+

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.

Gaming-dedicated Function(ALLM,VRR,QMS,QFT)

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.

CINEMA DSP 3D for Movie, Music and Game

This unique Yamaha proprietary sound field creation technology was created by combining measured sound field data with digital signal processing. Yamaha collected sound field data from famous concert halls and music clubs around the world, utilizing its wealth of experience in the fields of concert hall design, public address and mixing. By digitizing this vast trove of information and incorporating it into dedicated LSI devices, it effectively reproduces the spaces of concert halls and music clubs in your home. Immerse yourself in the astounding realism of your movies, and enter a world of profound theatre sound.

eARC

Unlock the full potential of your 4K content. Enhanced Audio Return Channel (also known as eARC) is the next generation of ARC – available in the industry-leading AV receivers from Yamaha. eARC delivers full-resolution, multi-channel audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD through your existing HDMI connection, giving you the most realistic surround sound experience for immersing yourself in your favourite movies and moments.

Compressed Music Enhancer

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.

Phono

This AV receiver provides dedicated phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection.

 

Advantage of High Slew Rate Amplifier

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.

Compatible with Wireless Rear Speakers

Combine this AV receiver with the MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 wireless streaming speaker and enjoy the amazing convenience of creating a home theatre with wireless surround sound. What’s more, you get stunningly realistic sound with a clean, clutter-free setup. Easily turn your current living room into a special entertainment environment where you can fully enjoy movies and music.

 

Easy Operation by MusicCast App

Use your smartphone or tablet together with the MusicCast CONTROLLER app to operate the AVR and change settings quickly and easily. The same Controller app functions as a remote control for all your MusicCast-compatible devices as well as full multi-room audio controls.

Streaming Services

Explore a world of music with music streaming services* built-in. Synchronizing your playlists and tracks from your smart phone or computer to the AV receiver, music streaming services make it impossibly easy to either listen to your favorites or discover new music.

Multi-room Audio - MusicCast

Imagine sharing all the music you love throughout the home – no matter the format. From your favourite vinyl to AirPlay®, Bluetooth® to music streaming services* and even sound from your TV, MusicCast has it covered.

Additionally, all MusicCast products are designed with sound quality at the front of mind. High-res formats including Apple Lossless (ALAC) up to 96 kHz, WAV, FLAC and FLAC or AIFF up to 192 kHz are supported.

YPAO™-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control)

YPAO™-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) analyses the room acoustics with the included YPAO™ microphone to tune your system for the ultimate sound in your specific room. It employs R.S.C. to correct early reflections for studio-quality surround sound.

Zone2

Featuring Zone2 compatible speaker terminals, this system can send the same (or even different) AV contents playing in the main room for playing in another room. For example, if you’ve got speakers installed in your bedroom or kitchen, you can go to that other room and enjoy listening to the same or different main room content.

Voice Control (Alexa, Google Assistant)

Touch or voice control – the choice is yours. Intuitively control a single MusicCast product or an entire whole-of-home system with ease using Alexa or Google Assistant and hear your home come alive.
*A third-party device is required to initiate voice commands.

AirPlay 2

"Hey Siri. Play music in the kitchen and living room."
AirPlay 2 adds the ability to stream Apple Music and other streaming services to multiple MusicCast devices throughout your home. Easily control it from your iPhone or iPad, link it with a HomePod, or simply utilize voice control and ask Siri to assist.

Anti Resonance Technology Wedge

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.

Dynamic and Compelling Design

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. Utilizing faithful reflections of tradition and incorporating fresh new design principles, the new look AVENTAGE exhibits engineering at its most innovative awe-inspiring best.

SCENE Buttons with the Ability to Preset Songs and Stations

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.

AV Setup Guide App for Initial Setup

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.
