"Yamaha’s seven-channel networked AV receiver comes to your kit rack boasting a gorgeous all-new design philosophy and seven-input/one-output HDMI stage that’s ready for advanced gaming consoles and the 8K video sources of the future. And while implementing an array of smart features, including allowing its MusicCast multiroom speakers to be used as wireless surrounds, Yamaha hasn’t turned attention away from performance. Propelled by revised high slew-rate amplification and proprietary Cinema DSP, the RX-V6A crafts spacious, detailed and immersive soundfields with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sources, while applying upmixing polish to stereo and multichannel material. This is a brilliant, forward-thinking addition to the brand’s AVR fleet."

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.
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.
