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.

  • H-shaped Cross Member Frame
    The interior of the receiver is reinforced with cross members in an H shape to provide an extremely rigid and stable frame. This reduces chassis vibration to virtually zero even during high volume output (seemingly even minor vibrations can affect the sound), maintaining the highest audio quality.

  • 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.

  • HQV Vida Processor for High Resolution HD and SD Images
    This AV receiver optimizes the video signals sent to the TV by using the most advanced HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) Vida processor. Supporting both SD and HD sources, this processor employs powerful noise reduction functions that even improve low-quality sources. Additional resolution enhancement functions make SD content look like HD.

  • 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.

  • 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-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) Sound Optimization with Speaker Angle Measurement
    YPAO-R.S.C. analyzes room acoustics and performs speaker angle measurements, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of several listening positions. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.

  • SCENE PLUS for Extra-conveniene
    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.

    *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.

  • 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 9.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is off, all 9.1 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 7.1 channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP HD3 is on, the two Rear Presence speakers will be powered and not the two Surround Back speakers. When CINEMA DSP HD3 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.

  • CINEMA DSP HD3 Expands the Sound Field Vertically for More Thrilling and Realistic Surround Sound
    CINEMA DSP HD3 literally takes the surround sound experience to new heights. By using four CINEMA DSP engines with advanced 3D processing and two front presence channels in a 9.2-channel configuration, it gives the sound field an enhanced vertical dimension for more realistic and exciting movie sound.

  • 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 2/3/4 on/off and control on front panel
    • Zone GUI (song/station select, album cover art display, Zone tone controls/Zone balance, short message)
    • Zone 2/3/4 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 (2.7W 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.

      Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 9.2 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

      The Aventage RX-A3010 was an upgrade from RXV-663!!!. Now mated to Paradigm Monitor 11,
      centre- 3, surrounds and Reference studio sub-12 Paradigm sub woofer with its own PBK-1 room correction apart from YPAO. The set up was a breeze with the room correction. Sound quality was truly amazing and audiophile quality in the stereo two channel and stereo 9 channel modes. The impact with movies and dialogue delivery was truly awesome. I Don't think one would desire anything more than what the Aventage RX-A3010 has to offer in terms of connectivity, ease of operation and performance. The only down side was the stability of the net radio inspite of a firmware upgrade. The FM/AM antenna could have been more powerful.It would be nice to see the NET radio mention artist and song details with a firmware upgrade for the same.

          Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 9.2 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

          I purchased the Yamaha RX-A3010 to replace a 3-year old Onkyo TX-NR5007 receiver that died on me. I am really impressed with the Yamaha.
          I feel that I went from a great receiver to an awesome receiver. The Yamaha produces movie theater quality sound for movies and clear reproductions for musical. I have played Star Trek, Master and Commander,and Green Lantern DVDs on both receivers and the Yamaha gave the more
          impressive results. I was wowed the Yamaha's musical sounds when playing Celtic Woman's "Songs from the Heart" video. The video and sounds seem
          to be some what better than that I had experienced with the Onkyo.

          In the Onkyo's defense, I am not a technical person and I may not have had the proper settings. In Yamaha's favor, set up was quick and easy
          and gave more impressive results. The only negative I have for Yamaha is the remote, for me the Onkyo's is better. Since I use a Harmony One,
          the remote is not an issue. In summary, I have been very pleased with this receiver.

              Upgraded from an Onkyo 605 and couldn't be happier. YPAO did an excellent job compensating for challenging room acoustics. Power and clarity is astounding. Love the impact it provides for HT and the tonality for music. Highly recommend!

              I have previously used receivers made by several other manufacturers, but none of them had the capabilities of this one. The YPAO automatic setup is quick and precise, the included sound programs offer a wide range of listening venues, and, unlike those offered in competing units, are quite different in their effects. I added an extra amp so that I can use the 11.2 features, which I highly recommend: the size and depth of the resulting sound stage is truly remarkable. This is an expensive unit, but it is well worth the cost: after using it, you will never want anything else.
              There is one nuisance: the lack of a complete printed manual. A unit of this complexity offers many features that are not obvious, and one has to refer to the user's manual frequently. That is annoying when one only has a manual on CD, or as a download from the Yamaha website. A high-end unit of this kind should not be affected by cost cutting by the manufacturer.

              Bought this receiver to replace my older Yamaha RX-Z1 for the new features. I loved the sound and gave it to my son. But...WOW! Being a Home Theater pioneer (first HT was stereo simulator hooked into TV headphone jack), and a longtime Yamaha owner, I couldn't believe the difference in sound! Everything is so much clearer to my ears, and the dynamics really make my Klipsch speakers sing! If you are in the market for an A/V Receiver, you should check this one out!

                  I use this on my Main audio/Video system I still only have the 7.1 at this time I am trying to decide to get bigger mains or just to stay with the Smaller surrounds. Either way I will not be sorry this is a really nice system. I have owned Carver, Sansui, Phase liner HK and Yamaha nothing matches this one system. I wish it had more control like a Graphic EQ but still it is a very clean sounding receiver. Every time I turn it on I get blown away by something else I did not hear before or just by the dimensional quality of audio playback. I really like the Network audio so clean. You will not be sorry if you get this system. I added the Blue Tooth system and its nice to control and playback from my phone. Enjoy!

                  I use the receiver every day for music, TV and gaming(360,PS3) and about once a week for movies. I have the receiver paired with Definitive Technology speakers and the 3010 makes them sing, especially with blu-ray movies. The first time I really got to test the surround capabilities was with the X-2 blu-ray and from start to finish it surpassed all expectations and blew away my old Pioneer Elite VSX92. It's weird, but one of my favorite things has got to be the Control app, it was a very pleasant surprise in ease of use and depth of functionality. I don't use the DSP's a really, but I can say that the Pure Direct performance is astounding. The only complaint I have is lack of WiFi/Airplay. But I've got a powerline ethernet switch, so it's not really an issue for me, and I believe the newer 3020 model has it anyway. OH I almost forgot, the main remote couldn't turn volume up, but I just have to send it to get a replacement!
