Uncompromising Performance

Evident in almost every element of the AVENTAGE Series, nothing has been left to chance to ensure uncompromised performance from each model. From the chosen components, to their position within the amplifier, to the final sound tuning, everything within an AVENTAGE model plays a role in delivering a finished product that is greater than the sum of its parts. A product befitting of the AVENTAGE badge.

Anti Resonance Technology Wedge

Any cabinet vibration has the potential to damage the integrity of the audio signal. To make absolutely sure the receiver chassis does not vibrate or resonate in any way, Yamaha developed a new approach – the A.R.T. Wedge. By adding a 5th leg in the centre of the unit to support the power transformer, power transistors and heat sinks, vibrations are further dampened, preventing unwanted ‘colouration’ of the sound.

Aluminium Front Panel Offers Visual and Aural Benefits

All of the AVENTAGE components feature the same sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminium front panel and silky touch volume/selector knobs. The aluminium 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.

Other Notable Audio Features

• 7-channel powerful surround sound
1,050W = 150W x 7 (8ohms, 1kHz, 10% THD, 1 ch driven, JEITA)
630W = 90W x 7 (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.09 % THD, 2 ch driven)
• HD Audio format decoding: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
• Discrete amp configuration
• Selected high quality parts to achieve optimum audio performance
• Pure Direct for HD Audio and video enjoyment
• Low jitter PLL circuitry helps optimise sound imaging
• Detachable Power Cable for easier installation (also allows cable upgrade)
• Assignable amplifiers for bi-amp connection
• Intelligent assignable amplifiers for Surround Back - Front Presence or Zone 2

[ Video Features ] HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel

3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable, with no need for an extra optical cable.

Analogue and HDMI Video Upscaling to Full HD 1080p

This AV Receiver will upscale video signals up to 1080p. This means a much better picture with HDTVs capable of 720p, 1080i or 1080p resolution.

High Quality Video Processing with Edge Adaptive Deinterlacing

In ordinary deinterlacing, pixels in areas of movement are interpolated by upper and lower ranges. This causes jaggies in diagonal lines. Edge adaptive deinterlacing detects the direction of the line and interpolates the pixels optimally.

Other Notable Video Features

• 1080p-compatible HDMI: 6 inputs (1 on front) and 1 output
• Supports Deep Colour (30/36 bit), x.v.Colour, 24Hz Refresh Rate and Auto Lip-Sync compensation
• Multi-cadence (incl. 3-2 pull-down) detection

Network Functions

This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet Radio, Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius XM and Napster, and use a Web Browser Control. The AV Controller app lets you control various functions from your iPhone or iPad, etc.

AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation

This AV Receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller app that is downloadable from the iTunes App Store to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone, iPad and other devices. An Android application is also available.

USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel

A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone music playback functions.

YPAO Sound Optimisation for Automatic Speaker Setup

YPAO analyses the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system.

SCENE for One-Touch Start

Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV Receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can re-set the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.

HDMI CEC for Easy Operation

Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV, and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver’s remote unit to control player functions like Skip and Stop.
*All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible TVs/players may not work.

Input Selection in HDMI Standby Through Mode

When the AV receiver is in HDMI Standby Through mode, the input source (Blu-ray™ Disc player, game console, etc.) for viewing on the monitor can be changed via the remote control. There’s no need to turn on the AV receiver in order to switch sources.

HDMI Front Panel Input

In addition to the large number of HDMI inputs on the rear panel, there is also one on the front panel. This gives you a convenient way to quickly plug in a digital camera or camcorder for highest quality pictures.

Advanced Multi-Language GUI On-Screen Display

Yamaha’s latest Graphical User Interface has a high resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and also includes a selectable Status Bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode and audio format. The GUI provides a choice of six languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Russian and Spanish, and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.

Intelligent Amp Assign

Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on what functions are selected. For example, in a 7.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is off, all 7.1 channels will be used in the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the two Surround Back channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2, and the Main Zone will receive 5.1 channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP 3D is on, the two Front Presence speakers will be powered and not the two Surround Back speakers. When CINEMA DSP 3D is off, this situation is reversed. Thanks to Intelligent Amp Assign, there’s no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the receiver—one more way Yamaha makes your life a little easier.

Other Notable Advanced Features

• DLNA 1.5 certified
• Audio input assign capability for HDMI and component video input
• iPod/iPhone compatibility with optional YDS-12 Universal Dock
• Wireless connection for iPod/iPhone with optional YID-W10
• iPod/iPhone song titles displayed in English and Western European languages on the front panel and on-screen display
• Dialogue Lift
• Audio Delay for adjusting Lip-Sync (0-250ms)
• Preset remote unit
• Background video feature (for tuner, Net and USB)

[ Surround Realism ] HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker

CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers.

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.

Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)

Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialogue and vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials, and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening, when you do not want to disturb others.

Other Notable Surround Realism

• Virtual Presence Speaker function for CINEMA DSP 3D surround without Front Presence Speakers
• Adaptive DSP Level

[ Versatile Zone Control ]

• Zone 2 on/off and control on front panel
• Zone sleep and system sleep
• Remote input/output
• Programmable +12V trigger output

[ Eco-Friendly Design ] Selectable Auto Power Down

Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 4, 8 or 12 hours.

Low Standby Power Consumption

Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.1W (2W in HDMI Standby Through mode).
