AVENTAGE AV Receivers: Designed to Deliver the Highest Levels of Audio Performance
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 A.R.T. Wedge 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.
A.R.T. Wedge Helps to Ensure that Vibrations Do Not Affect Sound Quality
The A.R.T. (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. This
elimination or reduction of vibration provides an audible increase in sound quality throughout the AVENTAGE Series.
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 energy generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors and so on. This ensures optimum sonic
performance in the widest range of installation environments.
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 helps to achieve a wide, open sound stage.
High Quality Parts Allow Sound Tuning for Optimum Performance
Each part inside of an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For the AVENTAGE models, extra time was spent to find and
develop optimized parts, which were then extensively tested in prototype units. This testing process allowed our sound
technicians to effectively “tune” the receiver’s sound to achieve the highest performance possible.
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.
Analog and HDMI Video Upscaling to Full HD 1080p
Enlarge
This AV Receiver will upscale video signals up to 1080p. HDTVs capable of 720p, 1080i or 1080p resolution can provide more
detailed picture.
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.
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
The AVENTAGE AV Receivers let you use the Yamaha AV Controller app, a free download 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 app will be available in the coming months.
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 Optimization with Multi-Point Measurement
YPAO analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound from your listening position, and
lets you set up to eight positions. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system.
SCENE PLUS for Extra-convenience
The SCENE PLUS function simplifies operation by providing one touch power-on along with selection of the desired source and
the appropriate DSP programs. SCENE PLUS offers a choice of 12 SCENE selections, four of which can be assigned to the
second zone in a multi-zone system. SCENE PLUS can be selected from the front panel, remote control, on-screen GUI and
even from the iPhone app.
HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) 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.
Advanced On-Screen GUI
Yamaha’s latest Graphical User Interface (GUI) 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.
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. The actually measured sound
field data contain the information of the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves the reproduction of the
accurate height of the sound images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic sound fields in a listening room.
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.
Versatile Zone Control
• Zone 2 on/off and control on front panel
• Zone 2 video assign (Component, S-Video, Composite)
• System Backup / Recovery function
• Multi-channel output in main Zone plus 2-channel HDMI output in a second Zone

• Party mode
Low Standby Power Consumption
Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.3W (2W in HDMI Standby Through mode).
Eco-Friendly Design with Selectable Auto Power Down
Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 4, 8 or 12 hours.
