Yamaha Declares All AV Receiver Lines 3D Compatible

By |


Yamaha_Aventage_RX-A3000.gif With the recent launch of its AVENTAGE Series, Yamaha claims that its entire line-up of current AV receivers, including the RX-V67 Series, support the newest HDMI 1.4a specification, making them compatible with all mandated 3D formats.

The Yamaha lines conform to the HDMI spec's newest requirement released last March. It mandates that AV receivers must support the frame packing 3D format at either 720p50 and 1080p24 or 720p60 and 1080p24, side-by-side horizontal at either 1080i50 or 1080i60, and top-and-bottom at either 720p50 and 1080p24 or 720p60 and 1080p24.

Additionally, all Yamaha AVENTAGE receivers, plus the RX-V667 feature an on-screen display GUI that can overlay onto HD and 3D sources. Yamaha's proprietary Cinema DSP 3D audio processing, which is offered in each of the line's models, allegedly provides extra height and dimensionality to the home theater.

Yamaha's AV lineup includes nine 3D AV receivers. The introductory level includes the RX-V367 ($279.95 MSRP), RX-V467 ($379.95), RX-V567 ($479.95) and the RX-V667 ($579.95). Yamaha's new AVENTAGE series consists of five models of 3D AV receivers: the RX-A700 (MSRP: $649.95), RX-A800 (MSRP: $799.95), RX-A1000 (MSRP $1099.95), RX-A2000 (MSRP $1499.95) and the RX-A3000 (MSRP $1899.95).

The AVENTAGE series features include 7.2 channels with HD Audio decoding - Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, four SCENE buttons, iPod compatibility with optional YDS-12 or YID-W10 wireless yAired dock, Bluetooth compatibility, and analog-to-HDMI 1080p video upscaling.
