Product Details

Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black AV Network Home Theater Receiver, Model RXA2000

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
  • HQV Vida Video Processor
    The IDT HQV® Vida™ processor enhances image detail and quality with four-field motion adaptive de-interlacing, multi cadence tracking, expanded 12-bit color processing and detail enhancement. The result transforms standard-definition sources to HD quality and makes HD look even more detailed. Moreover, the device also provides real-time clean up of highly compressed video, reducing compression artifacts of block and mosquito noise from lower-quality sources. The HQV Vida incorporates two new IDT HQV technologies — Auto HQV™ and HQV StreamClean™ — which automatically enhance the incoming image and provide powerful clean-up of source video, allowing the picture to be as crisp and clean as possible. Auto HQV enables hands-free adjustment to optimize image quality of content from different sources or content that varies in quality. Auto HQV analyzes the video content to adaptively adjust image and noise processing parameters to optimize image quality and reduce artifacts. The latest offering from IDT HQV also features 14-bit internal processing and 12-bit output for deep color processing and 3D gamut conversion for xvYCC processing. These capabilities provide accurate conversion of regular and wide gamut content to the display’s native gamut. In addition, The VHD1900 features six axis color control, with independent adjustment of any color’s hue, saturation and intensity
  • 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. Depending on your product's specifications, some will allow you to use the On-Screen Display feature on your video monitor to navigate your music. Some products can even allow you to view your photos and movies from your iPod/iPhone on your video monitor (view the Specifications of each product for iPod/iPhone playback compatibility)

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

            This is a very good receiver. But after spending over $1,000 to get a top-notch system, I expect at the very least A PRINTED MANUAL in the box. I challenge Yamaha to produce one and send it to all customers who bought a 2000. We deserve it. There really is no excuse. The CD version is virtually useless when you're trying to tweak your 2000. Don't tell me to print the manual and put it in a 3-ring binder. Not after I spend over a grand. This might seem trivial, but when you try to use some of the very many features of this unit, YOU NEED A MANUAL TO REFER TO. I'm very unhappy about this, and I won't buy another Yamaha anything as a result. Consider this, Yamaha: You put all funding into great engineering and product design. Then for lack of a manual you make it virtually impossible for the customer to take advantage of the product. Now, DO THE RIGHT THING and PRINT MANUALS and SEND THEM TO US.

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

              Excellent receiver. We are listeners of music--classical, ballroom dance, jazz. This receiver has a very pleasant sound from cd and dvd players when using an optical or digital input from a variety of players. The sound is transparent, clear, and enables the vocalization to be separated from the music. Comparing this receiver with straight rca inputs from a pioneer elite dvd f-07 player, the sound is far better than an old Dennon AVR it replaced. I'm talking about just the amplifier portion, "straight" through or pure direct. And the difference is not small. Even my wife's "walking" disks come alive and reveal background talk that you could not hear with the Dennon AVR! Using the optical input, I can hear no difference between the pioneer D/A plus filtering system and the Yamaha's 24 bit converters. The test disk used was Reference Recordings XLO test disk which contains some of the best recordings ever made (by Prof. Johnson). Track 13 is a non HDCD recording by Eileen Farrell of Stormy Weather. And the sound feeling is very good. However, that said, I connected my Marantz CD 5004 player that has Cirrus Logic D/A converters and its own filtering system (for a discussion of D/A and filtering refer to the DacMagic d/a converter literature from Cambridge Audio). The Marantz is a significant step above the Yamaha converters--you only need to listen to the sax in the beginning the immediately hear the difference. That said, all this equipment has its own sound that some may like or not like. We also have a Revox 225 CD player and it is tuned to sound more like a "tube" system than a solid state system, and it is 20 years old by still sounds superb. Gilding the Lilly would be to have assignable d/a converters and filters to each channel!!! But again, this review is from a critical listener.
              One more important point. We have Bose 901 and Bose AM 5 systems. The AM 5 is not as good as the 901 system. That said, when switching from the Dennon AVR to the Yamaha RX-A2000 made a huge difference in the sound quality. The 901's are connected to Pioneer Elite's 200 watt/channel amplifier of years past and the sound is extremely good. With the Yamaha receiver on the AM 5's, they come much closer. The base and drums seem very tight at the end of the note, nothing like a wishy washy decay that we had before. So the AMP makes a huge difference even on a much less expensive speaker!! You often hear choose the speaker first and then the amp. Well you need it all. And this Yamaha delivers.
              The various sound fields work as advertised and are truly interesting to listeners who have stuck to stereo for many years. I'll probably upgrade the 901 system with the excellent switching capability of this Yamaha (can't use the equalizer without a separate amplifier, however).
              The video portion of the receiver works as expected. Tried it on both a Pioneer plasma and a toshiba 480i tv. It does in fact improve the picture on both from non blue ray players/disks. Dot crawl is non-existent with this technology. All non-hdmi inputs are better, and we do use the non-hdmi, non-HD for a variety of purposes.
              Highly recommended from a very fussy listener.

              An excellent audio receiver with top class features. Hoever remote is horrible and manual is poorly written. Setup is painful but you will love it after that. Will take a month to properly setup and learn all features.

                Replaces a Lexicon DC-1 and while this was a daring move, the Yamaha proves itself, the best way to go.There is no going back to separates. I would have returned it immediately had it not bettered my experience. Thanks, Yamaha and ABT Electronics[...]
