The Benchmark in AV Receivers

AVENTAGE AV receivers are the reference standard to which all others are compared. Passionate engineering and meticulous attention to detail produces the Yamaha hallmark of True Sound. You can feel the quality in the design and fabrication – from every electrical path, component, and piece of material. Each element was scrutinized with intense detail to produce the finest, first-class performance. The AVENTAGE AV receiver is a work of visual and acoustic art.

Dolby Atmos and Dolby Height Virtualization

Let your customers feel every dimension in Dolby Atmos and enjoy a 5.1-channel surround sound system and two additional overhead speakers or two Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for truly enveloping audio. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization* technology can simulate the Atmos experience for those without in-ceiling or upward-firing speakers in their system.

Split screen view of TV with HDR and with HDR 10+

HDR and HDR10+

HDR (high dynamic range) video provides incredible contrast, smooth tone, and rich, bright colors—providing viewers with full, high-definition enjoyment with an exceptionally realistic and natural picture quality. HDR10+ greatly improves video content's dynamic range (the ratio of light to dark) on a scene-by-scene (or even frame-by-frame) basis. Also, using frame-by-frame metadata improves the scene characteristics between bright and dark so that important detail can remain. This enables displays to reproduce images more realistically, adhering to the creator's intent.
*HDR10+ is available via future update.

End-To-End 8k/4k

Supports end-to-end 4K/60Hz, 8K/60Hz* and 4K/120Hz resolutions and higher refresh rate solutions with a single upgraded cable for seamless integration within the HDMI eco-system. 8K delivers a super-immersive viewing experience with 2x the horizontal and vertical resolution of 4K, and four times as many pixels; and combined with a 60Hz refresh rate, it enables smooth and sharp viewing of content with high-speed action. 4K120 enables ultra-fast motion UHD images to be crisp and razor-sharp, allowing sports, action movies, high-performance gaming, and VR to benefit significantly.
* 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz are available via future update.

HDMI logo


Enhanced Audio Return Channel (also known as eARC) is the next generation of ARC – available in the industry-leading AV receivers from Yamaha. eARC delivers full-resolution, multi-channel audio formats such as Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® through an existing HDMI connection, giving viewers the most realistic and immersive surround sound experience.

Zone 2/3/4

Featuring Zone 2-compatible speaker terminals, this system can send the same (or even different) AV source playing in the main room for playback in another room. If speakers are installed in the bedroom, kitchen, or patio, content can be enjoyed in that other room while listening to the same or different main room content.

Graphic of High Slew rate

High Slew Rate

The slew rate measures how quickly an amplifier can respond to a rapid input level change, contributing to precise signal transmission and especially effective with high-resolution audio signals. This newly designed circuit achieves a high slew rate and stable signal transmission, allowing it to handle each audio signal with precision and accuracy.

Graphic simulation of sound coming from speakers and being calibrated with YPAO

YPAO™ Automatic Room Calibration with R.S.C. and Multi-Point

YPAO (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer) analyzes your customer’s room acoustics, measures speaker characteristics, and adjusts unwanted reflected sounds to optimize every channel of their home theater. R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) analyzes room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of eight listening positions. Simply by placing the supplied microphone at the listening position and switching YPAO on, the system is automatically calibrated, ensuring your customer’s home theater room has the best sound.

Graphic simulation of Surround Ai


Artificial intelligence (AI) technology built into the DSP analyzes the scene of the entertainment content and then creates the optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the ultimate impact. This AI instantaneously analyzes scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds, and sound effects, and automatically optimizes the surround effect in real-time. Imagine having a Yamaha sound engineer listening next to you, tuning the best sound live and specifically for you. AI technology creates a compelling sense of realism with expressive power beyond conventional sound field effects, giving you the most profound entertainment experience possible. Qualcomm® QCS407 with 64-bit high precision processing delivers precise surround sound.

CINEMA DSP HD3 for Movie, Music and Games

This Yamaha flagship 3D sound field playback technology was created by combining actual measured sound field data with cutting-edge digital signal processing technology. The revamped CINEMA DSP HD3 features new signal processing algorithms and maximizes theatre sound effects, accurately reproducing a new dimension of realism for a sound field with a rich sense of presence and no feeling of boundaries. By using front, center, and surround speakers to create a rear virtual speaker, CINEMA DSP HD3 playback of up to 11.1 channels is possible* even with a 7.1-channel speaker configuration.

Anti-Resonance Technology Wedge

The Anti-Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge is a fifth foot in the center of the chassis unit base. It dampens vibrations from the power transformer, power transistors, heat sinks, and vibrations that might be caused by the sound from the speakers — providing dynamic sound and focused, accurate reproduction.

Enhanced Media and Gaming (ALLM, VRR, QMS, QFT)*

Enhanced media and gaming features ensure an added level of smooth and seamless motion and transitions for gaming, movies, and video. They include: Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), which enables the ideal latency setting to be set automatically, allowing for smooth, lag-free, and uninterrupted viewing and interactivity; Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) reduces or eliminates lag, stutter, and frame tearing for more fluid and detailed gameplay; Quick Media Switching (QMS) for movies and video eliminates the delay that can result in blank frames before content is displayed; and Quick Frame Transport (QFT), which reduces latency for smoother, no-lag gaming and real-time interactive virtual reality.
* These features are available via future update.

Newly Designed Mechanical Structure

The highly logical and symmetrical internal layout of parts and totally renewed circuit boards are designed to keep the signal paths on each board as short as possible. The new H-cross frame improves the rigidity of the receiver body and sound stability, allowing for clearer, sharper, and more transparent reproduction. Also, the newly redesigned mechanical structure contributes to avoiding the transition of vibration from the transformer to the amplifier circuit. Sound noises are reduced to improve clarity.
