Product Details

Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver, Model RXA730BL

The AVENTAGE RX-A730 provides exceptional Yamaha audio and video quality in a 7.2 channel network AV receiver with independent Zone 2 for whole home entertainment. Enjoy expanded Apple® connectivity through AirPlay® and experience unrivaled control over the receiver by using a tablet and the free Yamaha AV Controller App for iOS/Android™/Kindle Fire™. Network functionality provides access to Internet radio (vTuner) and Pandora® and Rhapsody® streaming services. MHL® supports full HD video and audio from your phone or portable device and advanced auto calibration (YPAO™ w/R.S.C.) ensures optimum audio performance.

Features:

  • AVENTAGE AV Receivers: Designed to Deliver the Highest Levels of Audio Performance
    The AVENTAGE line of high-performance AV receivers are 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 Helps to Ensure that Vibrations Do Not Affect Sound Quality
    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
  • 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 radiation generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors and so on. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments
  • Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality
    The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimize distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality
  • Extensive Audio Codec and Format Support
    This AV receiver is compatible with many audio formats such as Dolby® True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio™. They are also compatible with FLAC/WAV 192 kHz playback. You will enjoy excellent sound quality from a Blu-ray Disc™ and other types of high resolution sources
  • 4K Pass-through and Upscaling Supports Latest High Resolution Video Formats
    This AV receiver's HDMI® input/output supports 4K video image pass-through. It also can perform 4K upscaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high-def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats
  • 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
  • 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® and Rhapsody®, and operate your system via WebBrowser Control. The AV Controller App (from iTunes® App Store or Google Play) lets you control various functions from your iPod®, iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ phones/tablets
  • AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
    This AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller App that is downloadable from the iTunes App Store or Google Play to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone or Android device. You can also use in as many as 23* different languages and customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available
    • *As of Spring 2013
  • AirPlay® Allows Streaming Music to AV Receiver
    This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from an iPod, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on a Mac® or PC. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can view metadata such as song title and artist name as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen display
    • *Some models don't support album art display
  • MHL® (Mobile High-Definition Link) Support for High Quality Video and Audio
    MHL provides easy, direct connection of compatible mobile phones to this AV receiver. Playback of up to 1080p video and multi-channel audio is supported. The receiver also charges the connected phone. Play, stop and other basic operations can be controlled from the remote control
  • USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel
    A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad 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/iPad music playback functions
  • YPAO™ R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) Sound Optimization
    YPAO R.S.C. analyzes room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound. 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
  • Intelligent Amp Assign
    Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers depending on what functions are selected. For example, 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
  • Advanced Multi-language GUI On-screen Display
    Yamaha’s latest graphical user interface 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 eight languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures
  • SCENE for One-touch Start
    Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds
  • 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 the highest quality pictures
  • HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
    Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC 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
  • Connection for YWA-10 Wi-Fi Adapter
    This AV receiver provides a DC-out connection for the YWA-10 Wi-Fi adapter (optional accessory). This lets you stream music wirelessly via a router from network components such as a PC or NAS
  • Connection for YBA-11 Bluetooth® Wireless Adapter
    This AV receiver provides a DC-out connection for the YBA-11 Bluetooth wireless adapter (optional accessory). You'll be able to stream music wirelessly from a Bluetooth wireless technology capable smartphone, tablet or PC, without a Wi-Fi environment
  • 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 Speakers deliver 3D sound without actual use of presence speakers
  • Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging
    The Subwoofer Trim Control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is “pushed” toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim Control takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced, enhanced bass sound
  • New Virtual CINEMA DSP for 7.1 Channel Surround Sound
    New Virtual CINEMA DSP provides virtual 7.1 channel surround sound from only front speakers (2.1 channel), with no need for rear speakers. Using new 24 kHz HRTF (Head-related Transfer Function) technology, it creates a rear sound field that is extremely spacious, natural and powerful
  • Dialogue Lift and Dialogue Level Adjustment for Natural Dialogue and Vocals
    Dialogue Lift raises the sound of dialogue from the center speaker to a position in the center of the screen. Newly developed Virtual Dialogue Lift achieves dialogue lift without the need for presence speakers. Dialogue Level Adjustment lets you control the volume of the vocal sound, so you hear movie dialogue and music vocals at the ideal level for clear, comfortable listening
  • 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 dialog, 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 max volume and initial volume setting
    • Remote input/output
    • Programmable +12 V trigger output
  • ECO Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20 Percent*
    Yamaha’s ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20 percent. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu
    • *Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
  • Selectable Auto Power Down
    Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after two, four, eight or 12 hours
  • Low Standby Power Consumption
    Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.1 W in IR Standby mode (3 W in HDMI Standby Through mode, 3 W in Network Standby mode)

      On the market are small lights that are key fobs. I have velcroed one to my remote and have made it a lighted remote!
      Wish the control panel read out were a bit larger/brighter. I also use a book clip on 'in bed' reading light clipped to the edge of my stand as a small control panel assistance.

        Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

        I have had multiple Yamaha AV receivers plus another leading brand in the past and have never been disappointed with Yamaha. This unit was easy to install and set up and delivers excellent sound quality though our 7-2 system with. We utilize a leading universal remote because it simplifies the activities for friends and family but that was expected with any brand. I especially like the iPad application as we have a home automation system and many other devices we control from our mobile devices.

        I printed the manual. I thought set up was relativily easy and once I got the feel of the navigation, setup is intuitive. Set up is just a one time thing but soaking in the sound quality and features will definitely be a long lasting pleasure.

        We have paired this receiver with excellent front, mid and rear speakers along with two sub woofers. Movies and music makes our house rock with accurate crystal clarity and thunderous lows.

        It is hard to believe you could buy a better AV network receiver with both the quality and feature pack for this price. Sure, you can spend more, but based on the performance,......why would you?

        Home theater system. This is my third Yamaha. Each one has raised the bar from the standpoint of quality. This latest one was a "dream" to hook up for all the associated components. Keep raising the bar. As of today you have me as a "devotee" and a continued procurer of your products. Thanks!!

        Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

        This product is great for the value. I expected great quality from this brand and that is what I received. Certain features are lacking and a bit confusing to control.

        I was shocked that his unit was not able to produce a 480p signal from my Nintendo Wii.

        Also, I tried to program the remote to learn the Zone 2 volume controls, but that didn't work on my universal remote.

        Personally, I love the GUI and the system was easy to setup. Great sound quality was outputted to my 7.1 system.

        Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

        So far so good. I am enjoying this receiver but when I go from say listening to Pandora to something else that will utilize the on screen functions, the auto switching function will go right to the TV function rather than allowing me to use the screen to go to where I wanted to go. Not sure if that is a conflict with the receiver and my 55" flat screen (2012). Reversely, if I say have been watching the TV and go to "net" the receiver automatically goes to Pandora where I may have needed to go elsewhere on the net function. Small issue for the sound quality that you get out of this reciever but stil a bit anoying at times. I have to agree with everyone else that there is no carryable formal instructions. I see (before I too get the manufacturers note) that there is a CD with the full instruction on it but it is rather difficult to get my computer monitor over near the device while setting it up hence everyone remarking on there being no fully functional instructions to have in front of you while going through every detail to get everything set up in one fell swoop. After walking back and forth a bunch of times that gets old very quickly unless Yamaha would like to supply an ink tank along with the CD for my printer... However this is a great mid range receiver with everything I personally needed at this time and I am quite pleased with having purchased it. My biggest con however is not being able to afford the top most Aventage receiver! I added an Energy Take 5.1 surround sound speaker system to this and the sound quality is really great.

        Once I got it set-up I love it, but it took a lot longer than it should have. Really need instructions included.
