Product Details

Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black AV Receiver, Model RXA810BL

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 A.R.T. Wedge 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.

Features:

  • A.R.T. Wedge Helps to Ensure that Vibrations Do Not Affect Sound Quality
    The A.R.T. (Anti-Resonance Technology) 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. This elimination or reduction of vibration provides an audible increase in sound quality throughout the AVENTAGE Series
  • 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 energy generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors and so on. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments
  • 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
  • Analog and HDMI Video Upscaling to Full HD 1080p
    This AV Receiver will upscale video signals up to 1080p. HDTVs capable of 720p, 1080i or 1080p resolution can provide more detailed picture
  • 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
  • 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, Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius XM and Napster, and use a Web Browser Control. The AV Controller app lets you control various functions from your iPhone or iPad, etc
  • AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
    The AVENTAGE AV Receivers let you use the Yamaha AV Controller app, a free download from the iTunes App Store to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone, iPad and other devices. An Android app will be available in the coming months
  • USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel
    A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone 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 music playback functions
  • YPAO Sound Optimization with Multi-Point Measurement
    YPAO analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound from your listening position, and lets you set up to eight positions. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system
  • SCENE for One-Touch Start
    The Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for BD/DVD Viewing, CD Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button will automatically launch a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, SiriusXM Listening [model dependent], 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
  • HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
    Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) 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
  • 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 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 On-Screen GUI
    Yamaha’s latest Graphical User Interface (GUI) 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 six languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Russian and Spanish, and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures
  • 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
  • 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. The actually measured sound field data contain the information of the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves the reproduction of the accurate height of the sound images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic sound fields in a listening room
  • 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
  • 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 dialogue 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
  • Versatile Zone Control
    • Zone 2 on/off and control on front panel
    • Zone sleep and system sleep
    • Remote input/output
    • Programmable +12V trigger output

    Yamaha you hit a Grand slam with this reciever. This reciever is the best one under a 1,000 dollars and can out do recievers over a 1,000 dollars. The picture and sound quality are excellent. This reciever screams out "Gotta have it". The construction is excellent and I like the fifth foot for stability and support. The aluminum face plate is nice touch and adds a strength to the look of the reciever. The set up is easy and straight foward. The GUI menu is well laid out. Make sure to load and read the owners manual to get full use of this reciever. I replaced my Yamaha RX-V567 reciever with RX-A810. The 567 is very good reciever, the 810 is an excellent reciever. This is my fourth Yamaha reciever in 30 years. They were replaced to upgrade not because the recievers quit. This is the best upgrade yet. Yamaha thanks for keeping up the outstanding I've known for the past 30 years.

    I am disappointed that one has to spend over a $1000, to get good video processing. I got rid of a Rotel Avr, to upgrade to HDMI, which is great, only to be disappointed with Yamaha's video processing. You have to step up to the 2k series to get above average video.

    Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black AV Receiver:

    I have been a loyal Yamaha owner for over 20 years+.
    I was already sold with the old technology. The entire neighborhood was in awe with the capabilities of the surround sound.
    The RX-A810 not only surpasses the old by leaps & bounds, but the technology is absolutely mind bogling.
    The things this receiver can accomplish is beyond my imagination. I had wished that it had a little more oomph. I expect people to hear me from two blocks away from the surround sound alone, never mind the music portion.
    I am very pleased with my purchase.
    We will be remodeling our living room within the next few months, I will absolutely be incorporating a higher end Yamaha Receiver, etc to my entire second higher end Man Cave.

    Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black AV Receiver:

    Ok so this a brilliant Amp, more outpuits and inputs than you can shake a stick at and the audio quality is superb with 2 speaker let alone 7 channel surround. I bought this for Phono inputs so it was a bit pricey but its a Yamaha with Soul and Punch. Im using Walfedale speakers and 3D TV as centre speakers through the return audio bottom left at the back panel. It would be nice to have a waveform or EQ Visual on the unit to check frequencies but hey ho. Network Tuner is a whole new world - Enjoy the ride it will be the greatest of adventures. And the Superlative AV of the year award for under 1000 dollars goes to,....Yamaha....again....Well done Yamaha a true master piece.

          Great reciever. Very easy to setup. The one thing that bothers me is the setup to change the HDMI output resolution to 1080i not 1080p as our projector require 1080i. This is how you do it: Make sure the reciever is OFF. Flip open the front panel and hold in STRAIGHT. Switch it on while holding it in. Press program until you see MON.CHK. Then press straight to turn it of. Go to on screen menu and go into video and turn on proccesing. Then change the quality to what you wish! Less complicated than it all seems. Your Welcome!

            Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black AV Receiver:

            I have always loved Yahama receivers, and really, they have gotten much better as the digital age and surround sound with Blu Ray and High Definition 1080p video and HD sound has advanced past DVD. I would say the best surround format that sounds awesome with this receiver will always be DTS HD Master Audio. Beats Dolby Tru HD hands down. You will always be better off choosing DTS HD Master Audio even if they are both given as a choice on the Blu-Ray movie. Even the regular DVD's I always chose DTS over Dolby Digital when it was an option. This receiver is clean, powerful and will blow you away with it's features and sound, especially with decent copper audio speaker cable and good speakers, like that from Infinity or Definitive Technology. The only better technology in receivers is that of the THX Ultra2 and Select2 certification, but you will also pay more overall for those. This is a great receiver! Highly recommended. And to the person who says you need to get the 2K series to get better video processing, one option is to NOT hook up the video to the receiver at all, and just run HDMI video straight to the LCD LED or plasma TV (LED backlit LCD recommeded over plasma), and the audio from an optical digital cable to the receiver from the Blu-Ray player. Do not use a receiver for video processing if that is your beef. This is what I do.

              I can't tell you how pleased I am with Yamaha and this 810 receiver. Have not had one problem with it in the year that I've owned it. The smartphone app is fantastic and easy to use. Overall this is one of the best purchases I've ever made. You will be happy with this receiver.

                Use this unit for 5.1 in the main entertainment room and use the extra zone option. It works great.I purchased 2 pioneer elite units and had issues and sent thm back for refunds so I said went researching and decided to try Yamaha and I am very pleased. The receiver is very user friendly , The only issue is I wish we could have the option for purchasing a manual for the unit. I hate the CD..Other than that I ove my purchase and I highly recomend this to anybody looking to purchase a music/home theater receiver its the best.

                  Setup:
                  Front Speakers- Yamaha NS-A300 (26 yrs old!)
                  Rear- Polk Monitor 30
                  Center- Polk CS-2
                  Sub- Polk DSW-10

                  Basic setup was quick and simple. Help for advanced setup was easy to find on Yamaha's website. Frimware update was simple. BIG improvement over previous (non-Yamaha) AV Receiver.
