Product Description

The Aventage Advantage: Craftsmanship in Engineering
Yamaha's 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 harmonizing 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 the primary goal of achieving 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.

Total Purity Concept
Enjoy fine sound quality. The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high-drive amp technology, high-purity pre-amplification, and anti-vibration technology. All models have fully discrete power amplifiers that help minimize distortion. They also adopt pure independent power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heat sinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.

High-Quality Parts
The whole is greater than the sum. Every single part in an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For Aventage models, extra time is taken to find (or develop) the exact parts needed to achieve the highest performance possible. Sound technicians go through a testing process to "tune" the receiver's sound.

Anti-Resonance Technology: A Firm Foundation
The Anti-Resonance Technology Wedge is a fifth foot in the center of the unit. 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.

Advanced Foundational Design
The feet of the receiver feature a newly designed, high-density structure that utilizes two different kinds of interior ribs—straight and curved—to enhance strength and damping performance. Installation stability is improved and chassis resonance is dispersed, effectively eliminating external vibration. The low-range response is enhanced, while resonance peaks in the mid and high range are reduced, providing dynamic sound and accurate reproduction.

Aluminum Front Panel
Shielded from noise. All Aventage components feature the same sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminum front panel and silky touch volume/selector knobs. The aluminum front panel is used to effectively shield sensitive circuitry from external noise and electronic radiation generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors, and so on. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments.

Full 4K: 4K Ultra HD HDMI Support
Providing complete compatibility with the latest HDMI standards, this AV receiver delivers transmission of 4K video at 60 frames/second pass-through. It also supports HDR (high dynamic range) video, including Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma. This provides incredible contrast, smooth tone, and rich, bright colors—giving you full, high-definition enjoyment with an exceptionally realistic and natural picture quality.

Stream Simply: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay Compatible
Built-in Wi-Fi allows for a connection with your wireless router, greatly simplifying system connections for music streaming or enjoying networked audio (PC/NAS). Bluetooth connectivity is also included to stream into your receiver or out from the receiver to another Bluetooth device, such as a pair of headphones.

Bluetooth Output: In and out
The receiver is equipped with Bluetooth technology, making wireless operation more convenient than ever. You can stream music from the receiver to Bluetooth headphones for private listening or to Bluetooth speakers. Bluetooth output has been improved, reducing lip sync delays from digital sources.

New Heights in Sound: Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Compatibility with these amazing sound technologies creates an extraordinary experience. They deliver breathtakingly rich and realistic surround sound, positioning and moving individual sounds to any virtual point in your room, including objects moving overhead. Experience the overwhelming realistic movement and immersion in videos—right in your home.

Every Room is Different: YPAO-R.S.C.
Sound optimized. YPAO-R.S.C. analyzes the room acoustics with the included YPAO microphone to tune your system for the best sound in your unique room. It employs R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) to correct early reflections for studio-quality surround sound. Additionally, DSP Effect Normalization adjusts the room acoustics according to the reflected sounds of each CINEMA DSP program.

Wireless Surround Speakers
Combine this AV receiver with the MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless speakers and enjoy the convenience of creating a home theater with wireless surround speakers. Get stunningly realistic sound with a clean, clutter-free setup and turn your current living room into an entertainment environment where you can fully enjoy movies and music.

Multi-Room Audio: MusicCast
Start with this AV receiver in your home theater and expand to other rooms over time with MusicCast speakers, sound bars, or Hi-Fi gear. Stream your music and TV sound everywhere using your existing Wi-Fi network. With MusicCast, the system grows with you, and there’s no need to run wires through walls.

MusicCast App
The free MusicCast app puts control of your AV receiver in the palm of your hand. Access your sources and streaming services, adjust volume and sound settings, and link with other MusicCast devices for simultaneous playback throughout your home.

Voice Control: Amazon Alexa on MusicCast
"Alexa, turn up the volume." With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. Use any Alexa-enabled device, such as an Echo or Echo Dot, to control either the AV receiver by itself or multiple MusicCast devices throughout your home. (Availability of voice control via Amazon Alexa varies by region.)

A World of Music: Streaming Services
Explore a world of music with built-in music streaming services. Syncing your playlists and likes from your smart device to the receiver and discovering new music becomes even easier with your receiver.

Second Room Sound: Zone 2
This feature, also known as Intelligent Amp Assign, allows users to enjoy stereo sound in a second room. When Zone 2 is turned on, the two surround back channels in a 7.1-channel system will be redirected to the two speakers in Zone 2, while giving the Main Zone 5.1 channels of power. Thanks to this feature, there’s no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the AV receiver.

Dust and Groovers: Phono Input
Enjoy music from your vinyl collection through the phono input terminal.
