Yamaha 2013 AV Receivers Engineered By Ear


Yamaha-2013-AVENTAGE-receivers-small.jpgYamaha introduced its 2013 AVENTAGE network AV receivers, engineered by ear. The 9.2 channel RX-A3030 and RX-A2030, as well as the 7.2 channel RX-A1030 posed a challenge to Yamaha's R&D team, who sought out and picked components and technologies by ear.

The performance cornerstones of the 2013 AVENTAGE receivers are ESS Technology SABRE32 ES9016 and SABRE ES9006 digital-to-analog converters. Yamaha engineers listened to each option before choosing the components that delivered the best performance.

The AV receiver is the centerpiece of a home theater, and Yamaha knows that the user interface is critical. These AVENTAGE receivers offer flexible whole house entertainment, enabling the viewing of two HD audio/video sources simultaneously in two rooms via HDMI zone switching. Wide connectivity to music is provided by AirPlay, Pandora, and Rhapsody music streaming services, vTuner Internet radio, Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) and DLNA certified components. Yamaha's AV Controller App for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Android and Kindle Fire devices provides comprehensive system control (power, volume, source, DSP Mode, SCENE selection, etc.) from anywhere inside or outside of the home.

Yamaha's new AVENTAGE models are available at authorized Yamaha AV dealers, with the following MSRPs: RX-A1030 ($1,199.95), RX-A2030 ($1,699.95) and RX-A3030 ($2,199.95).
