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
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. 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.
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
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
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, iPad or Android device.
AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
The AVENTAGE AV Receivers including the RX-A810 let you use the Yamaha AV Controller app,
a free download from the iTunes App Store or Android Market to control power on/off and volume,
select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone, iPad and other iOS
devices or with an Android device.
USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front
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
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 for One-Touch Start
The Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to
default settings for BD/DVD Viewing, CD Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing
a SCENE button will automatically launch a number of operations that initiate play of the source
controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening,
SiriusXM Listening [model dependent], TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing
and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by changing Input via the front panel and
watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace
the original default settings. The SCENE names can be changed also.
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.
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 On-Screen GUI
Yamaha’s latest Graphical User Interface (GUI) has a high resolution display with clear, easy-touse 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
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 sleep and system sleep
• Remote input/output
• Programmable +12V trigger output
• RS-232C interface
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).
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.
