Known to deliver a truly high-class sound studio experience, Yamaha’s AVENTAGE range of receivers are highly sought after, even by audiophiles. Early this year, Yamaha upgraded its entire RX 70 series of AVENTAGE AV receivers. Here, we have a look at just three of them, the RX-A1070, RX-A2070 and RX-A3070.
The new RX 70 series features Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™ for surround sound realism, supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) and will be compatible with Dolby Vision™ and Hybrid Log-Gamma for incredible contrast, smooth tone and rich, bright colors with a firmware update. Other common features include a free MusicCast app, Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® and AirPlay® wireless connectivity, phono input for vinyl playback, advanced HDMI zone switching and Zone 2 control options.
The Yamaha RX-A1070, the only 7.2-channel network AV receiver of the three, features high-performance digital-to-analog conversion with the ESS SABRE Premier Audio DAC ES9006A and lets you add audio in up to 9 additional rooms with MusicCast.
The Yamaha RX-A2070 is a 140W 9.2-channel network AV receiver that features 11 speaker terminals with Intelligent Amp Assign for Zone 2 and dual SABRE Premier DACs.
The top of the range Yamaha RX-A3070 is a 9.2-channel with CINEMA DSP HD3, XLR terminals for low signal transmission and minimized sound distortion provided by its high-performance SABRE32 Ultra DAC and ESS ES9026PRO SABRE DAC.
