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.


4K Pass-through and Upscaling Supports Latest High Resolution Video Formats

This AV receiver's HDMI input/output supports 4K video image pass-through. It also can perform 4K upscaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high-def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats.

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.

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.

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 and operate your system via WebBrowser Control. The AV Controller App (from iTunes App Store or Google play) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android devices.


AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation

This AV Receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller app that is downloadable 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 iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones. A tablet version is also available.


AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV receiver

This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on Macs or PCs. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can use view metadata such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via AV receiver's on-screen display.

*Some models don't support album art display.


USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel

A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected, even if the receiver is off. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad 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/iPad music playback functions.


Versatile Zone Control

  • • HDMI Zone B for audio/video streaming to another room (same content as main room)
  • • Zone 2 on/off and control on front panel
  • • Zone sleep and system sleep
  • • Remote input/output
  • • Programmable +12V trigger output
  • • RS-232C interface
  • • Party Mode

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 CEC for Easy Operation

Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC 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.)


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 Multi-Language GUI On-Screen Display

Yamaha’s latest Graphical User Interface 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 seven languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish and Chinese, and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.

SCENE for One-Touch Start

Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV Receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can re-set the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.


YPAO R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) Sound Optimization with Multi-point Measurement

YPAO R.S.C. analyzes room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of eight listening positions. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.


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 stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.


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.


Dialogue Lift and Dialogue Level Adjustment for Natural Dialogue and Vocals

Dialogue Lift raises the sound of dialogue from the center speaker to a position in the center of the screen. Newly developed virtual dialogue lift achieves dialogue lift function even without the need for Presence speakers. Dialogue Level Adjustment lets you control the volume of the vocal sound, so you hear movie dialogue and music vocals at the ideal level for clear, comfortable listening.


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.


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 dialog 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.

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).


Selectable Auto Power Down

Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours.


Low Standby Power Consumption

Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.1W in IR Standby mode (3W in HDMI Standby Through mode, 2W in Network Standby mode).


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.

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 radiation generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors and so on. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments.

4 out of 5 eggsGood sound but not nearly as powerful as older Yamaha receivers. Transformer started buzzing at 3 years usage

Pros: The sound is very good for home theater and has acceptable power for music but really only enough power for some of my music in stereo mode, IMHO. Tons of features; way more than I could figure out and use regularly. YPAO worked great for my room but then, I followed a lot of common advice from AVS Forum on that.

Cons: Power a bit lacking. Power supply transformer started buzzing pretty loud at about 3 years. There are a lot of failures in all stereo brands now (not just Onkyo!) but buzzing doesn't seem like a common failure mode for Yamaha so I only knocked it down 1 star for the buzzing transformer and kinda' limited power. An older Yamaha (pre-HDMI) in a similar price range had enormous power comparatively - so just don't expect these modern ones to have that kind of BIG power. Power is sufficient 80% of the time with music and almost always with theater - although I do have 2 Yamaha powered subs helping with that.

Other Thoughts: The warranty I bought through Newegg by Service Net processed the buzzing stereo back and had a full refund via Newegg gift card back to me within 2 days of the claim. I did ship it to Service Net quickly, though. Delayed return might get slower service. I find Newegg Service Net's warranty handling to be very impressive. Especially since there were only a few months left on the plan! Now I'm waiting for the May Newegg sales because that's the low price point I bought at originally.

5 out of 5 eggsShell Shocker Nirvana

Pros: 2 Zone, Parametric EQ, Network abilitys

Cons: No Spotify app yet

Other Thoughts: Had been in the market as a loyal newegg customer for a dual zone airplay capable receiver for listening to music. Had priced out sonos,but multizone gets pricey quick with that. Already have a Yamaha v373 receiver and polk rm6750 5.1 speakers and thought they were a nice bang for the buck system for my tv room, which was not a real big room. Wanted a 2 zone stereo essentially for the main floor in my house to listen to music and also drive my patio and garage speakers. Shell shocker puts this thing out for under 500$ and it actually took me a couple hours to finally put it in my cart, cant imagine now why I was thinking about it so long. Delivery was quick as always. I paired it up with polk RM510 5.1 system for under $200 which has a bigger sub than the 6750 I have. So now I am using this as a 2 zone music player that was much cheaper than what I could have done with sonos. Put the stereo hidden from view in the garage closet, put 3 speakers above cabinets in my kitchen, put the other 2 above the hutch in my dining room, put the sub in my hall closet between the 2 rooms and cranked it up a notch to turn the whole closet into a nice subwoofer. I use the 7 channel stereo mode for the speakers since that's all I am using this rig for. Sound is SO GOOD all over the first floor of my house for the money spent, and its all hidden from view. I drive it all with the Yamaha app on my cell phone, never have to touch the avr anymore. I use Pandora one mostly, but it is hooked into my network and I also play music off my pc server and also have a cd changer on it if I am ever energetic anymore to reach for a cd. I use the 2 zones so I can listen to different music than my wife when I want. Hooked up my 2 garage speakers and 2 patio speakers to zone b and good to go. Parametric EQ on manual mode was fun to play with and brought the very best out of those reasonably priced little polks. Very happy with my hidden from sight ingenuity and shopping skills. Only cons I could think of is it doesn't have a spotify app yet, so I have been using Pandora one, which sounds very good. Wish someone made a 2 zone network player like this that didn't have all the video inputs or even an fm radio receiver, since I am pretty much not even using them, but hey, price was right. Well done Newegg on the shell shocker deal. I'll be back soon for a couple more outdoor speakers (polk of course, I am sold on polk and yamaha value).

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome HT Receiver

Pros: 8 HDMI's in 2 Out
Many other connection options including mixing and matching inputs/outputs
Zone's didn't appeal at first but I've grown to like it
Infinitely configurable...almost too much but really can there ever be too many options
Very well engineered, plenty of heat sinking AND protective circuitry. This thing will shut itself off when overloaded or shorted.
OH Yeah, and I got it in that week NewEgg offered it for $499. Sensational value.

Cons: Not really the Power House Sound System I had anticipate but more than adequate for my Co-op situation.

Other Thoughts: Actually I bought this primarily as the INTERFACE between all my new and legacy Media Streamers, NAS's, DVD's, DVR's etc and a 60" Pana Plasma. Basically NO TV has all the hookups I need. This Yamaha comes as close as anything out there. I could actually have used an Optical out and some S-Video's In...for various needs but again this has just about every kind of hook-up anyone needs for now. Yamaha is great for multiple and complex hookups. AND it's an outstanding Base for a Kick-A$ Theater System.

5 out of 5 eggsAll around excellence

Pros: I bought this receiver on sale from Newegg, the deal was too good to pass up. I have been researching receivers for 3 years now and went from Onkyo (too many problems) to Denon (very good but 2013 quality went down), then finally to Yamaha's. the only thing that the Yamaha's were behind the Denon's in was YPAO instead of Audyssey MultEQ XT. Unfortunately because Denons weren't getting good reviews on their 2013 models it was the current Yamaha A720 or A820 vs Denon 2112 or 2312. The Yamaha's features were more advanced due to being newer, especially AirPlay. So Yamaha it was.

The A820 has it all. This is for two purposes, surround sound for movies and for music. It excels at both. YPAO set up with 8 locations is nice, but probably not a big enough deal over the single position of the A720. I ended up only using 5 positions and really had to hunt for the 5th location. It did a very good job setting my Polk RM 705's; which I actually have set up as recessed ceiling speakers. (I've Jerry-rigged them in the attic space with speaker cloth and plastic trim hiding them from view). I have tweaked the settings a little for the center and rear speakers after the auto setup. I also make use of the Dialogue Lift and Dialogue Level features. Only downer is I have to up the volume for movies (-24) to get the same loudness as music (-40). This could be because I have to use a digital optical cable instead of ARC (TV limitations).

Music is awesome. I think this receiver is better for music than for movies. The selections for sound presets are many, although I only use a couple of the options. The rest sound muted. The music source options are endless. Pandora, Internet radio, other music streaming abilities, AirPlay, direct streaming from iPad, iPhone, or android device. All have pretty much worked flawlessly and are very easy to figure out how to make work.

AirPlay is soo nice and is another example of simple Apple technology at its best. Streaming music directly from an iPhone/ ipad or android phone works almost as seamlessly as AirPlay. Except, videos are included in the music playback so you have to be on top of that to skip to the next song. Playlists are lost and everything is in alphabetical order.

The most pleasant surprise I've discovered is the free app Yamaha offers. I rarely use the remote. Aside from the initial setup and the occasional tweaking of setting accessible only via the remote, I use the app 98% of the time. I remember several years ago when high end systems offered a portable large screen remote. Well now with the iPad Mini, we can get that ability for a mid-level receiver. Plus the iPad does 1000x's as much as those old music system only remotes. Because of the app, my entire system is hidden from view. The satellites are in the ceiling. The center is only visible when watching TV since they are all in an armoire. The sub and receiver are stacked in the corner behind some bookshelves. Although all this equipment maybe nice to

Cons: No video airplay.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter Than Advertised

Pros: Sleek, clean, classic Yamaha look. Enhances normal TV sound to clear distinct words so you are not having to crank the audio to understand what people are saying. Movies (Blu-rays) are even better. The DTS-HD and TrueHD are as good or better than going to a movie theater. Pandora was a snap to setup and the audio on 7 channel encoding is amazing.

Cons: I'm an audiophile and I have tried to find something not to like. Sorry, can't find anything so far.

Other Thoughts: This AVR is paired with

1 x Kilpsch Synergy C-10 Center Channel Speaker
2 x Kilpsch KB-15 (Front left & right)
2 x Kilpsch Synergy S-10 (Rear left & right)
1 x Yamaha powered sub-woofer

All I can say is WOOOOW!! :-)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Reciever

Pros: Lots of features very crisp sound, I would definitely buy it again. I have hooked this to polk floor speakers and a klipsch woofer and I love it. This is my first not out of the box set up and it was a breeze. It has a very nice user interface.

Cons: I wish it had HD radio, the next model up has it but it costs a lot more.

Other Thoughts: Do not use YPAO. Just set it up manually, you will be a lot happier. If you do make sure you go into the manager and set your speakers to small (not large) otherwise it will turn off the sub.

2 out of 5 eggsStatic in Speakers

Pros: It attempts to do what it's designed to do.

Cons: No matter what I do I'm still getting quite a bit of static/crackling in the front left speaker only (Polk Monitor 70 - II). It doesn't matter which speaker/cable combination I use. I even bought one of Monster's power surge/clean power strips which helped a little. Looks like I need to either send this back or contact Yamaha.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent AVR

Pros: Excellent sound quality. Easy to set up. Great features, especially after the firmware update that came out a few days ago, adding Pandora, Sirius/XM, etc. I have it in a large entertainment center and it is cool to the touch. The parametric EQ is wonderful and brought my 5 Polk speakers to life. My LAVA sub is no longer boomy, just deep and tight, but not overwhelming unless I really crank it. The corner placed sub blends beautifully and that was my biggest worry for not getting an Audyssey XT receiver. I researched this for a solid month before buying and am very happy!

Cons: My Onkyo NR605 HDMI board went out after 4 years so I needed an update. When I first set up the Yammy, it sounded really terrible and my family thought I had made a big blunder. You have to spend some time getting the right settings but it is well worth the effort, so it's not really a con at all. You do have to reset the unit to factory default and start over if you screw up the YPAO. Luckily I got it right after one reset.

Other Thoughts: When I first ran the YPAO I used the 8 point measurement and it sounded awful. The center channel was muffled to the point where we couldn't even understand basic dialogue. My LAVA 12 sub barely had any output. I called Yamaha support at 2a.m. and the rep was miffed so he asked me to call back the next day and speak to a level 2 tech. This guy was most helpful. He said the multi-point had confused the receiver. We reset the unit, and did a single point auto setup. Then I measured the distances for the 5 speakers and did a manual setup. You have to make all of the other speakers set to small to use the sub EQ, and I set the crossover to 90Hz. Then here's the best thing: I used the paramatric EQ, and boosted bands 3 and 4 for the center and surrounds (just 1/2 db) and does it ever sound great!! I'm an audiophile and noticed the treble is smoother than the Onkyo, but even more detailed. My sub has NEVER sounded so good. I am impressed.

5 out of 5 eggsNo surprise here

Pros: Works seamlessly with everything I connected to it so far and set up was a snap. Blu-ray, Cable, internet radio, streaming from PC-s.
Very easy to control it from a computer (and I assume from any device connected from the net).
Astonishing sound both from my older Boston Acoustic and new Polk Audio speakers.
Graphical interface is very intuitive.

Cons: Remote control buttons on the lower end are a bit small, but the scene buttons make setting the environment easy.
I have not found anything wrong with the unit yet.

Other Thoughts: I assume if you don't get a lemon this Yamaha provides you with beautiful sound, easy of operations through their intuitive GUI, real easy connectivity and ton of features. This Yamaha replaces an older unit (HTR 6090) which also gave me pleanty of enjoyment of music and video, but cannot handle 3D and did not have network connectivity. So far Yamaha makes me a life long loyal customer

5 out of 5 eggsMore than satisfied...

Pros: The convenience of the USB/HDMI/Audio ports on the front of the receiver. Airplay once I set it up. The plethora of HDMI connections available. Sound and audio performance.

Cons: None to speak of as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I recently purchased this receiver elsewhere, and I am absolutely satisfied. I currently have a Polk CS10 center channel and 2 JBL ES80s hooked up to it for audio and a PS3 and a AT&T Uverse cable box hooked up for my video needs. I am getting nothing but phenomenal audio and video performance out of this receiver. I occasionally use my iPhone and Alienware laptop via the USB and HDMI ports on the front of the receiver and have no complaints. The system works flawless and was worth every penny. I upgraded from a Yamaha RX-V765 that got fried by lightning. As soon as I hook up the receiver to wifi I will test the airplay feature, but I can only assume it will work as advertised.
