AVENTAGE Separate Components

AVENTAGE Separate Components represent the pinnacle in exhilarating home entertainment. In pursuit of the ultimate in home cinema, Yamaha establishes a new benchmark in performance and innovation. Introducing the MX-A5200 power amplifier.

 Yamaha Aventage CX-A5200 Preamplifier & MX-A5200 Amplifier Review

"If I had to choose a word to describe the build quality of either unit, it would be 'uncompromising'. The mere act of unboxing the MX-A5200 was enough to assure me that I was in for something special. From it's beautifully crafted aluminium faceplate, to its substantial toroidal transformer and capacitors which dominate its internal architecture, the MX-A5200 oozes quality. And power."

Power and Presence

The MX-A5200 offers 11 x discrete channels of amplification with flexible configuration options - delivering an impressive combination of power and quality.

Enjoy the flexibility of a multi-zone system or immerse yourself in exhilarating surround sound using any combination of 11-channels.

Effortless Performance

The MX-A5200 utilises a high-output, large toroidal transformer combined with 2 specially developed high-capacity block capacitors to deliver massive power with generous headroom.

Also, energy loss is minimised and ensures effortless reproduction of sound sources.

Ultimate Performance with BTL

To further enhance power capacity, the MX-A5200 supports Bridge Tied Load (BTL) configuration for the front 2 channels. This allows for a major improvement to the front speaker performance.

Perfectly Symmetrical

Precisely planned, circuit-routed and designed with a symmetrical power amplifier layout, the MX-A5200 achieves ideal channel separation with left and right sides being both physically and electrically isolated.

The design also greatly improves signal-to-noise ratio and achieves an expansive sound stage.

Superior Connection

The rear of the MX-A52000 features high-quality, gold-plated terminals that are compatible with Y plugs (spade connectors) for optimal connections with speakers.

Balanced XLR Connections

When connecting AV components, electrical noise can be introduced - a result of the connections between them and also from other sources of external noise.

To combat this inherent issue, the MX-A5200 utilizes balanced connections for all 11-channels - the same type found in professional audio applications.

Additionally, the alternative RCA unbalanced connection uses a ground sensing transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission.

Heavy-duty Bottom Plate

Stabilising the chassis is the key to enhanced performance and deep, sinking sound. The MX-A5200 achieves this by employing a thick bottom plate which acts to steady the entire structure and achieve optimal sound.

In addition to its rock-solid design, the MX-A5200 features the Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge, 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.

Uncompromising Design

As part of its uncompromising design, the MX-A5200 boasts a specially designed chassis to maximise rigidity and eliminate the effects of vibration.

The MX-A5200 employs a double bottom construction consisting of vibration control plates made of 1.6 mm steel - echoing that of the legendary Z11 AV receiver.

In order to support the heavy heat sinks and other components, a left-right independent construction strengthened by a rigid-frame structure is utilised. The bottom frame reduces the transmission of vibration produced by the large power supply transformer and heat sinks.

The MX-A5200 also incorporates a heavy insulator that blocks external vibration.
