The RX-A8A, RX-A6A and RX-A4A, offering 11-, 9-, and 7-channels, respectively, join the all-new Yamaha AVENTAGE lineup. The three new AVENTAGE models will offer a number of HDMI 2.1 inputs supporting 8K60/4K120, with seven inputs on each.
Each new model provides stability against vibrations via the signature AVENTAGE “fifth foot.” This Anti-Resonance Technology wedge has been further analyzed and developed for even more efficient dispersion of chassis vibration in the three new models, placing the fifth foot near the front center of each unit’s base to bring the sound image closer to the listener.
The new AVENTAGE AV receivers have both the processing power and flexibility to re-create clear audio and visual experiences for movies and gaming. This includes 8K/60, 4K/120, 4K/60, HDMI 2.1, and HDR10+ to usher in a new era of dynamic displays.
These new AVENTAGE models include support for the latest HDMI technology, with seven inputs and three outputs in each model supporting 8K60/4K120. This HDMI 2.1 compatibility provides faster, smoother, and uninterrupted entertainment and gameplay with auto low latency mode (ALLM), variable refresh rates (VRR), quick frame transport (QFT), and quick media switching (QMS).
All inputs on the new AVENTAGE models support Dolby Vision. In addition to DTS:X and Dolby Atmos, the three models also offer Dolby Atmos with Height Virtualization. The top two models will offer Auro-3D.
In addition, all models feature Surround:AI, a proprietary Yamaha technology that analyzes the DSP parameters and optimizes each sound element, such as dialog, background music, and sound effects, in real time. The three new AVENTAGE models double the previous platform at 64-bits, thanks to using Qualcomm’s QCS407 chip.
The advances to the appearance and processing platform are echoed in the upgrades to the internal circuit design, mechanical structure and audio parts. This includes:
All new AVENTAGE models offer the entire suite of MusicCast capabilities and app control, including Wi-Fi, AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, built-in music streaming services, multi-room audio, and voice control via Alexa, Google, and Siri-enabled devices. Built-in streaming services include Amazon Music HD, Deezer, Napster, Pandora, SiriusXM, Spotify, Tidal, and Qobuz, plus thousands of internet radio stations.
Full two-way control is available via software integration drivers that connect the new AVENTAGE models, and dozens of other Yamaha home audio products, with the nation’s leading home automation and smart home control systems.
