Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black Network AV Home Theater Receiver, Model RXA1000

Key Features:

  • HDMI
    HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first and only industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. With the ability to deliver crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality home theater experience. HDMI can provide an interface between most audio/video sources, such as a set-top box, Blu-ray player, DVD player, or A/V receiver and a video monitor, such as a High Definition Television (HDTV), over a single cable. Depending on the model of product, HDMI can support standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. It can support all currently-available compressed audio formats (such as Dolby Digital and DTS) and most newer HDMI devices can support lossless digital audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™. (view the Specifications of each product for details on HDMI compatibility)
  • Dolby TRUE HD
    Dolby® TrueHD is Dolby’s next-generation lossless technology developed for high-definition disc-based media. Dolby TrueHD delivers tantalizing sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, unlocking the true high-definition entertainment experience on next-generation discs. When coupled with high-definition video, Dolby TrueHD offers an unprecedented home theater experience that lets you enjoy sound as stunning as the high-definition picture
  • Dolby Digital Plus
    Dolby Digital Plus: Dolby® Digital Plus is the next-generation audio technology for all high-definition programming and media. It combines the efficiency to meet future broadcast demands with the power and flexibility to realize the full audio potential of the upcoming high-definition experience. Built on Dolby Digital, the multichannel audio standard for DVD and HD broadcasts worldwide, Dolby Digital Plus was designed for the delivery formats of the future, but remains fully compatible with all current A/V receivers. With Dolby Digital Plus, you get even higher-quality audio, more channels, and greater flexibility. Amaze your ears
  • Dolby Digital EX
    This surround format from Dolby Digital includes an added center rear channel. The rear center channel is actually matrixed into the two rear channels, and is extracted upon playback. (Formerly called Dolby Digital Surround EX, or Dolby Digital Matrix 6.1.)
  • DTS HD Master Audio
    DTS HD-Master Audio: DTS-HD Audio delivers sound quality that matches the clear and vivid images of high-definition video. Blu-ray and HD-DVD discs deliver five times the video resolution of standard DVD and produce images with stunning realism. But that's only half of the story. You need incredible sound to complete the high definition experience and DTS-HD Audio provides the highest quality multi-channel sound possible. Movies come alive with sound as lifelike as the picture, and music becomes as real as a live performance
  • DTS NEO: 6 (New)
    In this format, the back surround channel is matrix encoded into the left and right surround channels. For playback, the three channels are separately decoded
  • HD Radio
    HD Radio, the only digital broadcast system in America approved by the FCC, offers you crystal-clear, CD-quality sound via existing AM/FM radio bands. In addition, it gives you program-associated data and the ability to tune to multiple programs at the same dial position. Over 2,500 radio stations are in the fast lane upgrading to HD Radio broadcasting to reach 95% of America's population, and more than 230 stations are onair now
  • Network Receiver
    Using a local area network (LAN) connection and Windows Media Connect technology ver.2 or better, Yamaha Network enabled receivers allow you to play MP3, WMA and WAV music from up to fifteen (15) PC’s. The receiver can even be used as a client for Yamaha’s MusicCAST home music server, seamlessly integrating with the MCX-2000 digital audio server within your LAN. The Network Receiver also provides the ability to listen to any of the thousands of stations available on Internet radio when connected to a broadband Internet connection. By using the included MP3 vTuner data service that is enabled, looking for content on the Internet couldn’t be easier, from your favorite Rock, Pop, or R&B to Podcasts that cater to your music interests. With a USB terminal on the front panel you now have a convenient way to play music from USB flash drives and portable USB music players. Yamaha Network Receivers get you connected to the vast music content available anywhere on your LAN and on the web
  • DLNA Technology
    DLNA certification ensures a device has been tested and proven compatible with various CE, PC and mobile devices designed according to the DLNA Interoperability Guidelines. Products certified by DLNA will bear a logo that will give consumers peace of mind that the device they are purchasing has undergone rigorous testing and conforms to the Interoperability Guidelines
  • Rhapsody Technology
    Rhapsody is a digital music service that lets you listen to whatever you want, wherever you are — without paying per track. And Rhapsody membership plans start at less than the cost of a CD a month, so you can listen to as much music as you want without limits
  • Sirius-Ready
    A Sirius-Ready audio system lets you access your favorite SIRIUS Satellite Radio entertainment, including 100% commercial-free music, plus sports, uncensored talk, comedy, exclusive entertainment, world-class news and more, directly through your audio system with the use of an optional SIRIUS ConnectT Home Tuner kit. This product has a simple connector that allows you to plug the SIRIUS ConnectT kit and use the controls of this system to access all the content you want. Subscription and SIRIUS ConnectT Home Tuner (SC-H1) are required and sold separately
  • Sirius Internet Radio
    SIRIUS Internet Radio is the Internet version of the SIRIUS radio service, available without the use of a radio to current SIRIUS subscribers, or with a monthly subscription fee. SIRIUS Internet Radio delivers more than 80 channels of talk, entertainment, sports and 100% commercial free music in CD-quality sound
  • USB
    This unit is equipped with a USB port that allows you to enjoy WAV (PCM format only), MP3 and WMA audio files from a USB memory device (USB flash drive)
  • 8 Ch Ext Input
    8 additional input jacks for discrete multi-channel input. Front (Left, Center, Right), Rear (Surround Left & Right, Surround Back Left & Right) and Subwoofer
  • CINEMA DSP Digital
    Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects from ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater! The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-ES (DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and DTS-ES Discrete 6.1), DTS Neo:6 and DTS 96/24 decoding with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing
  • SILENT CINEMA and Virtual CINEMA DSP
    SILENT CINEMA makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones! This is a variation of CINEMA DSP technology that Yamaha developed to let you listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue. Virtual CINEMA DSP lets you enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without using surround speakers (handy for use in custom installations where some rooms don't have surround speakers). It can be used with the front / center / presence speakers or even with just the two front left and right speakers
  • Compressed Music Enhancer
    Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible
  • SCENE – A NEW LEVEL OF OPERATING EASE
    Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button automatically launches a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by changing Input via the front panel and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. The SCENE names can be changed also
  • YPAO Automatic System Calibration
    Yamaha’s YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters, such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers and even the sound pressure level, etc. Until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room and you don't have to do anything!
  • Bluetooth
    The Bluetooth® logo indicates that the product is equipped to use the optional YBA-10 Bluetooth® Wireless Audio Receiver that lets you connect the dock to the receiver and supports A2DP audio streaming. With the optional YBA-10 Bluetooth dock, you can enjoy music wirelessly from Bluetooth enabled mobile phones, portable devices, or personal computers. (view the Specifications of each product for Bluetooth® dock compatibility)
  • Made for iPod and iPhone (Docking Station)
    The "Made for iPod and iPhone" combination logo indicates that the product is equipped to use an optional Yamaha Universal iPod/iPhone Dock that lets you connect your iPod or iPhone to this product. With the optional dock you can listen to your music and operate the iPod/iPhone via the product's remote control while at the same time charging the battery.

      Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black Network AV Home Theater Receiver:

      I use many functions, multi-zone, internet radio, Ipad connection via Airplay/Apple tv, and of course BluRay dvds. Another big buy-factor for me, the HD fm receiver. We live near target-rich Boston, and pull a big number of HD fm stations. Make sure to upgrade the software upon purchase, it really helps increase the station-count . Being able to sit in one room and control this reciever in another is awesome; the Yamaha App is not to be ignored.

        Purchased to replace my vintage Yamaha setup. Still use my old M85 power amp (25 years old) to drive my main polk RTI12 speakers. Power from RXa1000 works fine for the rest of my 7.1 setup. Sound is great,on screen a little tricky for the first few times. Would buy again.

          I upgraded to this unit after my RX-V863 got fried by a power surge during a thunderstorm. I still have a record turntable and this new unit has the phono inputs I was looking for. I am really pleased by the performance of this unit. I have my TV, Blu-Ray player, Cable TV Box, DVD Recorder and XBOX 360 connected to it via HDMI and I still have extra HDMI ports available for future expansion. My TV is not 3D ready, but my Blu-Ray Player is and so is the RX-A1000, so when I am ready to upgrade my TV to 3D, all my equipment will be ready.

                  Replaced a Yamaha RXV1900; sounds just as good. This is an excellent receiver. I have not connected it to my network or a 3D monitor so haven't tested those capabilities.

                  Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black Network AV Home Theater Receiver:

                  I got this when my RX-V1900 failed to handshake HDCP content. It was a massive upgrade from my old one. All the possible decoding and features of this make my house sound better than the theaters. I like the android app, although it's kind of a novelty unless you are using the multi-zone features and are out of line of site of the receiver.

                  It was slightly taller than my old unit and wouldn't fit on the same shelf in my tv stand, so I had to completely undo all the wiring and rerun all the components, which needed to be done anyway. It is fairly heavy, but that's not really a con because you aren't moving it after you set it up.

                  The media server is nice, but more of an afterthought. It doesn't have the capabilities to playback most of the now more common compression formats and the interface is kinda clunky. I just use my PS3 to access my media server.

                  I don't see the industry creating too many new audio codecs for inputs. With the 7 HDMI inputs and countless other methods of hooking things to this, it is going to be very futureproof. Especially with the networking features. Hopefully if there is a new codec out, and only needs the new software, Yamaha can just push out an update that adds this new feature. You are going to have this unit for a good long while and well worth the investment. A Receiver is the heart of your home theater and should not be skimped on.
