Description

Surround:AI

The AI technology built into the DSP analyses the scene of the entertainment content and then creates the optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the greatest effect. This AI instantaneously analyses scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds and sound effects, and automatically optimises the surround effect in real time, just as if a Yamaha sound engineer tunes the best sound specifically for you. This creates a compelling sense of realism with expressive power beyond conventional sound field effects, giving you the most profound entertainment experience possible.

 

Dolby Atmos® and DTS-X™ Playback with CINEMA DSP HD3

This AV receiver supports Dolby Atmos and DTS-X playback with CINEMA DSP HD3, taking the surround sound experience to new heights. The revamped CINEMA DSP HD3 features new signal processing algorithms and three sets of high performance processors. This maximises theatre sound effects, accurately reproducing a new dimension of realism for a sound field with a rich sense of presence and no feeling of boundaries. You will experience a realistic cinema sound field with the sense of truly being immersed in the movie scene.

 

For Sound Purity

Highly Rigid Construction

The AVENTAGE model RX-A2080 features a sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminium front panel. Even more importantly, the unit is exceptionally sturdy, with an interior reinforced with cross members in an H-shape. It also features the Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge, which is a fifth foot in the centre of the unit that dampens vibrations from the power transformer and elsewhere. Thanks to these, installation stability is improved and chassis resonance is dispersed, effectively eliminating external vibration, maintaining the highest audio quality.

 

Optimum Performance

High Quality Parts

Every single part in an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For AVENTAGE models, extra time is taken to carefully select the most exacting, high-quality parts — including a large-capacity power amplifier unit with damping heat sink, a custom large power transformer, high-performance DSP devices, and so on — in order to achieve the highest performance possible. Moreover, sound technicians employ rigorous testing processes to optimally “tune” the receiver’s sound.
