|The 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 no other thought than to achieve 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. Anti-Resonance Technology Wedge Helps to Ensure that Vibrations Do Not Affect Sound Quality The Anti-Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) 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. Aluminum Front Panel Offers Visual and Aural Benefits All of the 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. H-shaped Cross Member Frame The interior of the receiver is reinforced with cross members in an H shape to provide an extremely rigid and stable frame. This reduces chassis vibration to virtually zero even during high volume output (seemingly minor vibrations can affect the sound), maintaining the highest audio quality. Symmetrical Power Amplifier Layout This is just one of the many design details that all combine to create a superior receiver. The interior of the unit has been precisely planned, circuit-routed and built so that the left and right channels are physically and electrically isolated. This naturally maximizes channel separation, but also greatly improves signal-to-noise ratio and also helps to achieve a wide, open sound stage. Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimize distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks 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. Sound Tuning Achieved with High Quality Parts for Optimum Performance 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, in effect, tune the receivers sound. Ultra-high Performance DACs for Superior Sound Quality An ultra-high performance ESS Technology ES9016 SABRE32TM Ultra DAC, 192 kHz/32-bit produces an unsurpassed sound stage with up to 124 dB dynamic range, super low distortion and noise level. High-quality ESS Technology ES9006 SABRETM Premier Audio DAC powers the presence channels. This AV receivers sound reproduction is for the most discriminating of listeners. Extensive Audio Codec and Format Support This AV receiver is compatible with many audio formats such as Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master AudioTM. They are also compatible with FLAC/WAV 192 kHz playback. You will enjoy excellent sound quality from a Blu-ray DiscTM and other types of high resolution sources. High-resolution Music Enhancer Further Heightens Musicality from the Original Content Hi-bit high-sampling extension up to 96 kHz/24-bit can be applied to lossless 44.1/48 kHz content such as from a CD (2 channel PCM) or a FLAC file for further heightening of the musicality in the original content. Ultra HD (4K) Pass-through and Upscaling This AV receiver's HDMI input/output supports Ultra HD (4K) video image pass-through. It also can perform Ultra HD (4K) upscaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high-def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats. Yamaha Video Processing Optimizes Video Content Yamahas high-end video projector engineering expertise has produced various advanced processing techniques that are applied to this AV receiver. These include edge adaptive deinterlacing to smooth out jaggy noise, motion adaptive deinterlacing to detect moving or still images for precise pixel-by-pixel processing and multi-cadence detection including 3-2 pull-down. Proper processing makes viewing enjoyment complete no matter what video source or content. 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. 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 and Rhapsody and operate your system via WebBrowser Control. The AV Controller App (from iTunes App Store or Google Play) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or AndroidTM phones/tablets. 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 or Google Play to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone or Android devices. You can also use in as many as 23* different languages and customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.*As of Spring 2013 AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV Receiver This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means it can accept wireless music streaming from an iPod, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on a Mac or PC. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can view metadata such as song title and artist name as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen display.*Some models don't support album art display.
