Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.1 Channel Black AV Receiver, Model RXA1010BL

Features:

  • AVENTAGE AV Receivers: Designed to Deliver the Highest Levels of Audio Performance
    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
  • 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
  • Symmetrical Power Amplifier Layout
    This is just one of the many design details that all combine to create a superior receiver. The interior of the unit has been precisely planned, circuit-routed and built so that the left and right channels are physically and electrically isolated. This naturally maximizes channel separation, but also greatly improves signal to noise ratio and helps to achieve a wide, open sound stage
  • High Quality Parts Allow Sound Tuning for Optimum Performance
    Each part inside of an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For the AVENTAGE models, extra time was spent to find and develop optimized parts, which were then extensively tested in prototype units. This testing process allowed our sound technicians to effectively “tune” the receiver’s sound to achieve the highest performance possible
  • 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
    The RX-A1010 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
    The RX-A1010 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 including the RX-A1010 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 of the RX-A1010 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 PLUS for Extra-convenience
    The SCENE PLUS function simplifies operation by providing one touch power-on along with selection of the desired source and the appropriate DSP programs. SCENE PLUS offers a choice of 12 SCENE selections, four of which can be assigned to the second zone in a multi-zone system. SCENE PLUS can be selected from the front panel, remote control, on-screen GUI and even from the iPhone app
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 2 video assign (Component, S-Video, Composite)
    • System Backup / Recovery function
    • Multi-channel output in main Zone plus 2-channel HDMI output in a second Zone
    • Zone mono, Zone volume, tone controls and balance
    • Party mode
  • Low Standby Power Consumption
    Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.3W (2W in HDMI Standby Through mode)
  • Eco-Friendly Design with Selectable Auto Power Down
    Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 4, 8 or 12 hours

The Yamaha RX-A1020 has tons of cool network/ipad/music/zone/radio/file playing features, most of which I don't care about or use at all. My basic needs were:

1. Being able to comfortably run 6 ohm speakers in a 5.1 configuration

2. Having excellent sound quality for both movies and music

3. Rock solid build quality

4. Having at least 6 HDMI inputs

5. Being as future-proof as possible so I won't have to upgrade any time soon

So, let's look at each item and see how it did:

1. Runs 4, 6, or 8 ohm speakers with no problem and no overheating.

2. After setting speaker impedance, running YPAO, setting all speakers to 'small', setting the sub crossover to 80Hz, using an SPL meter and Disney's WOW blu-ray to fine-tune speaker levels, and finally creeping the sub level up to match, it sounds incredible. Do not skimp on setup. Take your time. It will sound much better if you do the steps I listed.

3. Very happy with the unit's general build. Feels solid and weighty, which is what a quality receiver does. Seems like it would last a long time, physically.

4. There are 8 (eight) HDMI inputs. That should satisfy almost anyone. Plenty of room to grow. Also, tons of inputs for older components too (look at the photo of the back!)

5. The A1020 supports HDMI 1.4a and 4K upscaling. I don't specifically need these things right now, but they might look good in 5-10 years.

Bottom line: For my relatively simple needs, it is wonderful and absolutely worth the money. Most people will use more of the bells and whistles, but I can't comment on them.

Other thoughts and tips:

-I hate the way the remote is laid out, especially the volume up/down buttons being too high up and too small. There are also just too many buttons in general, which results in them being mostly tiny. With a little research, I discovered that the RX-A1010 remote, which is a lot better in my opinion, works 100% with this unit, and I purchased one for $35 new. The A1020 remote is in the drawer, probably forever.

-I wish it had a night mode. There is a DRC mode that is supposed to do the same thing, but I don't think it does what night does very well.

-I experimented with bi-amping my 5.1 setup. It raised the volume of the main speakers by only 0.6 db, and sounds the same otherwise. Don't expect anything from this feature.

-There are 5 different EQ modes. I recommend 'YPAO Flat' unless you are using a separate EQ, in which case you would choose 'Through.'

-Earlier, I mentioned that the last step in setup is to slowly bring up your sub level manually. That's because YPAO does a good job with the speakers, but seems to get everything with the sub wrong. The distance, the level, the crossover (it recommends 40 Hz after YPAO runs!) Adjust it yourself.

-I cannot stress this enough: assuming you have a powered subwoofer, set all your speakers to 'Small' after running YPAO. I don't care if they're big towers with multiple woofers. So are mine. Just do it. If you set them to 'Large' it may satisfy your macho speaker size ego of seeing the big graphics on the screen, but it will sound muddy in comparison. Let the sub do more of the work. It sounds much, much clearer.

-I was upgrading from a Yamaha HTR-6090. I went with Yamaha again because I had a very good experience last time (the 6090 is in my bedroom now.) All the same DSP modes from the old model were exactly the same on the A1020, which was great since I already had listening preferences established. The on-screen interface is worlds better, and the build/sound quality is improved as well.

This unit will not play music from a windows 7 / media player 12 pc. Tech support has told me there are not issues with the current version of the firmware. However my Sony Bravia TV and DVD player can play music from my Windows 7 pc. I get no content from the RX-A1010 when trying to play music. Do not buy this product if you want to play MP3 music from your pc.

Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.1 Channel Black AV Receiver:

I recently purchased a pair of Polk audio rti 12's and quickly realized that I needed an upgrade in power for these hungry speakers! When I finally got this receiver on line and powered up, I got the most pleasant surprise of my life. The pure direct function of this receiver has an extremely desirable effect by shutting down the other channel amps and powers only the front main speakers that I had bi-amped! Wow! I wish there was built in WiFi, because I will never own an apple product and air play is a waste to me!

      I bought this unit because I wanted the flexibility of analog and digital inputs including phono. Plenty of HDMI inputs with HDMI control was also wanted. The Unit performs above my expectations. I have Cable, phono, Bluray, CD and 2 computers hooked up to it. The internet radio is nice. I would recommend this Receiver to anyone.

          I was looking to reserect my turntable from 1975 and very few receivers at a reasonable price range had built in phono preamps. After reviewing the features of the 1020 I became more and more interested. It was purchased and connected to my assorted components. Prior to receiving the 1020 I studied the owners manual from the PFD file on line. This made the whole install process move quickly and provide instant satisfaction. Every room is different and i did follow the speaker set up using YPAO however most setting where changed. One of the most useful features is the TV on screen display of any function to either be adjusted or connected to. My room is now filled with great sound. I highly recommend this uint based on value, performance and ease of use, with that said, having some basic skills in a/v equipment is helpful.

          Poor remote. Cannot see labels. Should be the size of a small I pad. A touch screen would really help. If you make one available ,please inform me.
          A printed manual would be helpful. The CD is useless . What you charge for this unit a printed manual should be provided.

            Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.1 Channel Black AV Receiver:

            I wrestled with choosing the RX-A1020 over the RX-A1030. In the end I decided the A1020 more than met my AV needs. I determined the added connectivity of the A-1030 was not of great importance to me. I have used Yamaha receivers for many years and have always been satisfied with the sound/power output and quality build. As an upgrade from my obsolete RV 1105 Yamaha receiver, I am again very satisfied with my Yamaha purchase. The A-1020 delivers great balanced sound. I found it reasonably easy to set up. The remote is not extremely user friendly but I have been able to do all the basic and advanced functions with a little practice. It is a perfect match with my Klipsch reference speakers and works well with my existing AV components. Overall, very satisfied.
