Key Features:

  • AVENTAGE AV Receivers:
    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 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.
  • Anti Resonance Technology Wedge:
    The Anti-Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) 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
    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.
  • 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 For High Quality 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
    The RX-A2010 will upscale video signals up to 1080p. HDTVs capable of 720p, 1080i or 1080p resolution can provide more detailed picture.
  • Network Functions
    The RX-A2010 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, iPad or Android device.
  • AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
    The AVENTAGE AV Receivers including the RX-A2010 let you use the Yamaha AV Controller app, a free download from the iTunes App Store or Android Market to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone, iPad and other iOS devices or with an Android device.
  • USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel
    A USB port on the front panel of the RX-A2010 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
    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-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 AV Controller App for iPhone or Android devices.
  • 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 9.2-channel system, when Zone 2 is off, all 9.2 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 7.2 channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP 3D is on, the two Rear 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 9.2-Channel Sound
    CINEMA DSP 3D envelops you with a high, wide and dense soundscape. Add to this HD audio format decoding for enjoying HD sources and 9.2-channel capability, and you have a surround sound system that will make the sounds of movies and concerts come alive in your room.
  • 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 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 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
    Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 4, 8 or 12 hours.

My old surround receiver amp lost its left channel driver after 13 years of constant use. With a desire for more modern features and HDMI connections, I decided on the RX-A2010, and this was an excellent choice. Indeed, I was able to pull out a serious hand full of AV wiring from the back of my entertainment system, because of the HDMI inputs and outputs.I currently run 10 activities off of the RX-A2010 with ease of use. I also supply separate sound to two other zones in my home, usually capable of separate program sources. The sound in my main viewing room over all Infinity speakers has seriously come to life-- way better than any time previously! I'm sure this is, at least partially, due to the automatic calibration microphone; three minutes and the room was balanced!This is not to say that there was not a learning curve, but in a couple of weeks things were running quite smoothly. With a lot of features, there is a lot to learn. The main remote is very elaborate, albeit quite functional, and the smaller second remote is good for daily use. However, I own a Harmony 900 universal remote, which makes all ten of my activities quick and user friendly, but this took a lot of online programming. The beauty of it is that you can go back online over and over to tweak the programming. Therefore, I use the Harmony remote the most. But that is only part of the story, because Yamaha has a free iPod Touch App, which allows me to control my system wirelessly over my computer network, which connects to the RX-A2010. I use this mostly for audio listening, and it controls the RX-A2010 from anywhere in the house. In fact it is easier to use in many ways, especially for turning on and off the three separate zones, and then choosing the desired audio program source, and of course adjusting the volume, while in another room. It works as if I had three separate amps.I spent many hours going over the very thorough CD Manual, which I actually down loaded online to my laptop, before actually buying the RX-A2010. I still go back to the manual from time to time, when I encounter questions of detail. After the initial study and learning, I am comfortable with the RX-A2010, and it is probably my best entertainment center purchase I have ever made! Unless you are electronically inept, you cannot go wrong with the RX-A2010. I recommend viewing the details about the RX-A2010 at the online [@] site; it does not get any more thorough and informative than that.

This unit replaced a Yamaha DSP A1. With the huge change in inputs/outputs HD, Apple products, computers, internet connections etc. over the last 10 years, I decided it was time to upgrade to an receiver with more modern features.

I have mixed feelings about the new receiver. Yes, it does all I want, for example: My Apple laptop when connected via HDMI passes right through as it should; I love the idea of zones, where I can cook in the kitchen while my wife next door watches wrestling and car repair programs, but it has a couple of serious flaws.

1. The sound, unless using "pure direct" which bypasses all the effects, is woolly and less clear than with the old DSP A1. Turning on and off the "pure direct" function while listening to music in simple stereo is like night and day.

The bass lacks definition and the mid is brash.

This is particularly troubling when watching movies in surround sound. Whereas before, I couldn't hear the speakers and the sound was just there – particularly the voices, now I have to concentrate to hear what is being said since there seems to be so much "noise" in the sound image that was not there with the old DSP A1

2. So it sounds just as good as the DSP A1 when using "pure direct" when listening to music since it shuts off all the bells and whistles. This is particularly true when listening to LPs.

But now, one of the best features of this amp – having separate zones cannot work. As explained the very helpful people at Yamaha (yes they do have a help phone number that works) this is in order to keep everything clean for the main zone.

Overall – brilliant receiver with many features, but a serious step backwards in sound quality.

I still have the DSP A1. I just wish it wasn't such a hassle connecting my laptop etc. to it.

And I would miss the other zones.

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

Had an Anthem MRX500 as upgrade. For the price we paid, not getting the quality from our new Sony KDL-55HX850 with the Anthem as we were expecting. Dealer re-installed it and still the same. Bought the Yamaha on sale when new model came out - the picture was immediately different, clear and sharp and we saw everything so clear and realistic like HDTV is supposed to look. Now, some people so realistic that sometimes bad when a woman has too much make-up on or an unshaven man we see whiskers up close and personal. We see everything!
That is just the HDTV - everything else is awesome and use Pandora and SiriusXM internet radio. Plenty of power and an outstanding purchase!

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

    A stunning piece of hardware both sonic and visual. This unit is paired with a full Klipsch 7.2 surround speaker system in a dedicated home theater environment.

    The sound from this unit is absolutely incredible. The dynamic headroom is stunning, the decoding is perfect, the features are very good, I especially like the i phone app along with the multi-zone capability for streaming pandora or simply playing music from my i phone via network. The auto set up mic works fairly well but sets the system a little weak on the bass end for my taste very simple to bump the sub up a little though definitely not a complaint. I have been using Yamaha equipment for about 20 years now and I am as happy with this item as I have been with any other. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to get into a semi-High-End theater receiver.

    i have the rx-a2010 running definitive technology bp7001sc fronts, CLR 2000 center,SM 350 front effects and bpvx rears.all i can say is this receiver rocks.i listen to concert dvds at realistic volumes and it never seems to run out of steam.no matter what i throw at it,it always sounds clear.you can't go wrong with yamaha's upper line.it would of been nice to see a remote with labels so you know what input your going to.really hard for guest to operate.hopefully on newer versions they get that figured out.other then that you'll never find a better receiver.great sound and reliable.all the network functions work great.thanks yamaha keep up the great work.

    I've owned Yamaha all my life and wouldn't have anything else! The RX-A2010 is an upgrade/replacement to my old Yamaha HTR-5990 that my wife got in our divorce! This Receiver is dynamite! Hands down the best receiver I've owned yet! The sound is true and movies are great to watch and hear through this unit! I'm still exploring what this monster will do and am impressed every time I learn something new! Keep up the good work Yamaha! You'll always have my business!

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

      This unit replaced a Yamaha DSP A1. With the huge change in inputs/outputs HD, Apple products, computers, internet connections etc. over the last 10 years, I decided it was time to upgrade to an receiver with more modern features.

      I have mixed feelings about the new receiver. Yes, it does all I want, for example: My Apple laptop when connected via HDMI passes right through as it should; I love the idea of zones, where I can cook in the kitchen while my wife next door watches wrestling and car repair programs, but it has a couple of serious flaws.

      1. The sound, unless using "pure direct" which bypasses all the effects, is woolly and less clear than with the old DSP A1. Turning on and off the "pure direct" function while listening to music in simple stereo is like night and day.

      The bass lacks definition and the mid is brash.

      This is particularly troubling when watching movies in surround sound. Whereas before, I couldn't hear the speakers and the sound was just there – particularly the voices, now I have to concentrate to hear what is being said since there seems to be so much "noise" in the sound image that was not there with the old DSP A1

      2. So it sounds just as good as the DSP A1 when using "pure direct" when listening to music since it shuts off all the bells and whistles. This is particularly true when listening to LPs.

      But now, one of the best features of this amp – having separate zones cannot work. As explained the very helpful people at Yamaha (yes they do have a help phone number that works) this is in order to keep everything clean for the main zone.

      Overall – brilliant receiver with many features, but a serious step backwards in sound quality.

      I still have the DSP A1. I just wish it wasn't such a hassle connecting my laptop etc. to it.

      And I would miss the other zones.

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

      My third Yamaha Amp, still have other two after 15 years of trouble free service - bought this to work with my new Samsung 65" 8000 series 3D TV. Easy set up, however the amp will not recognize the 3D feed automatically, as you know DirectTV box will not allow their 3D channels to feed if the box does not see a 3D TV. It is solved by switching the input on Amp to something else and then back, this always works but its a hassle. I am using very good quality HDMI cables that support ARC and 3D so not sure why this happens. Only reason I gave it an average rating.

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

        I would consider myself a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to certain things. I'm almost OCD on build quality, sound quality and picture quality on anything I buy when it comes to AV, and that is why I'm the proud owner of the RX-A2010. It is built solid, and the sound quality is bang on target ! Truth be told, I am a bit of a Yamaha fan, but that loyalty has been well earned over the yrs thanks to the build quality and attention to detail on their AV range. I do evaluate the competition at every purchase, but Yamaha always wins my money. This will be the 4th Yamaha receiver/amp I've purchased over the last 20yrs. First off being a DSP-A3090, then a DSP-A1, then a RX-V2700 and this RX-V2010 has replaced my RX-V2700. Anyway, I must be happy, because I'm writing this review... The thing obviously has me excited ! :D OK, here's what I like about it. All the zones and configurations available to you. The iOS Yamaha App is a gadget lovers dream. Not often mentioned and I was over the moon when I found it working, is the wireless stream from your iOS device, without the need for airplay. Just have a wifi router in your home network. (who doesn't?) Obviously the build, sound quality and power delivery, but I think I made that point above. With all that said, I do have one disappointment,and that is the GUI OSD (on screen display) I would have preferred a HD crystal clear 1080P version and some HD wallpapers. Not a 480p interface and 480p wallpapers. It works fine, just would have been a nice finishing touch to have it 1080i/p. As I said, I am perhaps over fussy on certain things. Outside of this, I can't think of anything else I'd change. OK maybe a backlit remote... But that really is a minor gripe. The lack of an HD OSD is more of a gripe to me personally. But after a day or so, I've forgotten about it, and its all in the past.
