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 harmonising 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 centre 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.
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 maximises channel separation,
but also greatly improves signal to noise ratio and also helps to achieve a wide,
open sound stage.
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.
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 receiver’s sound.
Professional Quality Digital Audio by ESS DAC
Incorporating the SABRE™ 9006A Premier Audio DAC from ESS Technology to
achieve an exceptionally good signal-to-noise ratio and up to 120 dB of dynamic

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 minimise distortion. They also adopt independent pure
power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analogue and digital
circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analogue 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.
AV Setup Guide App Makes System Setup Easier

YPAO™-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control)
Sound Optimisation with 3D and Speaker
Angle Measurement
YPAO-R.S.C. analyses the room acoustics and performs speaker angle measurements, then calibrates all of the audio
parameters to achieve optimum sound at any listening position. It employs R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) to correct early
reflections for studio-quality surround sound. YPAO 3D provides automatic sound parameter optimisation that maximises the 3D
sound field effectiveness of CINEMA DSP 3D as well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Additionally, DSP Effect Normalisation adjusts
the room acoustics according to the reflected sounds of each CINEMA DSP programme.
YPAO Volume to Ensure Natural Sounds Even at Low Volume
Human ears have less sensitivity to high and low frequencies, especially at lower volumes. YPAO Volume applies loudness EQ
correction to automatically adjust high and low frequency levels as volume changes. Using the YPAO measurement results, EQ
correction is optimised to your system settings and listening environment.
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 3dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers.
Virtual Presence Speaker and Virtual
Surround Back Speaker
The Virtual Presence Speaker function
makes full use of centre and surround
speakers to create virtual presence
speakers. Enjoy CINEMA DSP 3D
Mode surround sound even in
environments where speaker
installation is limited. In addition, This
model also features a Virtual Surround
Back Speaker function. Even without
using surround back speakers, you can
experience more natural sound from
behind you.
Virtual CINEMA FRONT Provides Virtual 7-channel Surround
Sound with High Quality and Resolution
Even when it is impossible to install surround speakers behind the listening position, Virtual CINEMA DSP reproduces virtual 7channel surround sound filled with realism, from only two front speakers. The Virtual CINEMA FRONT feature lets you place two
surround speakers and a centre speaker at the front to enjoy virtual 7-channel surround sound with even higher quality and
resolution, as well as superior rear virtual sound localisation. Adding two additional front presence speakers provides a threedimensional sound field that gives you a feeling of its height and depth and of the vertical movement of the sound. You get more
flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.
Extra Bass Provides Rich Bass Reproduction, Even with Small
Yamaha’ s exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you expect from the speaker size while
maintaining good localisation and sound balance even with compact front speakers. When a subwoofer is used, it improves the
volume of the entire low range of the speaker system, not only the front speakers, but also enhancing the bass from the
subwoofer. You'll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.
Zone Extra Bass for More Powerful Bass Sound in Another
Rooms (Zone 2 and 3)
Use the Extra Bass feature to amplify bass tones, not just in your main room but also on systems in other rooms (Zones 2 and
3). Even with compact or in-wall speakers which typically lack bass, you’ll hear all your sources with powerful bass sound.
Zone Volume Equalizer for Optimum Sound Balance in Another
Rooms (Zone 2 and 3)
Automatically adjusts bass and treble balance to match the volume on systems in other rooms (Zone 2 and 3). Enjoy movies and
music with a natural sound quality balance even at low volumes.
Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging
The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with
the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage
while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap
occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is “pushed” toward the
subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer
frequencies cleanly, thus stabilising the front stage while providing a well-balanced
enhanced bass sound.
Advanced HDMI Zone Switching Allows
Unprecedented AV Switching to Multiple Zones
While standard HDMI zone switching can only send HD video programmes to the main and second zones, Yamaha’s Advanced
HDMI Zone Switching adds the capability to choose from all audio and video sources for playback in either zone. An on-screen
graphical user interface makes it easy to browse and select content to enjoy from the second zone no matter what is being
played in the main zone.
Intelligent Amp Assign
Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on what functions are selected.
For example, in a 9.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is off, all 9.1 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
7.1 channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP 3D is on, the two Rear 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.
ECO mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20%*
Yamaha’s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set
from the top of the GUI menu.
*Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
