Expanded zone options include powered Zone 2, Party Mode and Zone B dual HDMI® outputs.

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)

    About 7 months ago I purchased a Yamaha RX-A720 as a gift for someone else and have been most impressed with it's sonic performance and build quality. My previous receiver was an Onyko TX-SR507. It starting having chronic HDMI issues, so it was time for me to replace it with something other than an Onkyo. The Yamaha RX-A830 was on my short list due to my positive experience with the RX-A720 and a desire for incrementally more power. So far, I am thoroughly pleased with the RX-A830. The Yamaha YPAO system measures up to 8 different listening positions and produces a sonically pleasing and accurate soundstage for the specified listening area. I was able to bi-amp my Klipsch WF-34 speakers and they have never sounded better. The build quality of the receiver appears to be first rate and the unit's amplifiers do not get hot like my previous Onkyo. The Yamaha RX-A830 has all of the features that most audiophiles are seeking and integrates seamlessly with my Panasonic TV and Blu-ray player. Additionally, and very important to me, is that the Yamaha is manufactured in Malaysia, not China.

    Needed receiver that had two HDMI outs. and multi-ins. Great sound! thought I had a great product when I upgraded from a lesser quality Yamaha.
    I use for TV and front projection 3D projector for sports and movies as well as everyday music and TV viewing. Had for about 2 months. Amagine my disappointment when everything was wired through the receiver and I turned it off and went to bed; as I do every night, only to wake up and the next morning and can not turn receiver on to watch the news. At this time I re-routed the HDMI cable directly to the TV. When I got home from work I called support and waited for 20 minutes to be told to unplug the receiver for a few hours to see if it resets. If that does not work I would need to take it to a service center which is about 3 hours away. Tech did say he would kick it up the ladder to see if they would send me a shipping label due to a center being so far away. Tech was very nice and handled my needs the best he could. The tech should not have to kick it anywhere. He should have been able to make that choice on his own. Give your people the power to deliver top notch customer service. It's been my experience under situations like this I will have to call again to make this happen. I have owned many receivers over the years; many of them Yamaha which all still work well and I have them in different parts of the home; even outside. This receiver is the most money I ever spent because I am an old Air Force crew chief on fighter jets. In other words why spend tons of money on quality I can't hear anyway. Everyone tells me how great it sounds, so I guess I will take there word on that. The reason I purchased was to make it easy to run wiring and to support the technology of todays TVs. All that is true I love the receiver I just wish it worked.
    With all that said I will update everyone when I get through this. I am just glad it's not football season. Hope for the best moving forward.
    I would say in closing Yahama is a great product, receivers and speakers let's see if their customer service is as good.

      This was an upgrade from another Yamaha receiver rxv-1065 for my 7.2 home theater. I was unsure between this model and the equivalent rxv model. I wasn't sure if I would be able to tell the difference with the more expensive aventage models. My wife thought I was just wasting money on a newer receiver, but after it was all hooked up she could tell a difference and was blown away about the difference in sound quality from my previous receiver. Crisp, clean, sound that brings the movie alive and puts you in the center of it. There have been previous reviews about problems with the apps such as Pandora. I have not had any problems to date.

            This is my first Yamaha receiver I have had 3 Onkyo Receivers in the past. What I love about this receiver was the easy set up and step by step on the manual. This receiver has a 3D pass and a internet connection and best of all an HDMI in the front. Awesome.

              Loved everything about it when it worked

                Needed receiver that had two HDMI outs. and multi-ins. Great sound! thought I had a great product when I upgraded from a lesser quality Yamaha.
                I use for TV and front projection 3D projector for sports and movies as well as everyday music and TV viewing. Had for about 2 months. Amagine my disappointment when everything was wired through the receiver and I turned it off and went to bed; as I do every night, only to wake up and the next morning and can not turn receiver on to watch the news. At this time I re-routed the HDMI cable directly to the TV. When I got home from work I called support and waited for 20 minutes to be told to unplug the receiver for a few hours to see if it resets. If that does not work I would need to take it to a service center which is about 3 hours away. Tech did say he would kick it up the ladder to see if they would send me a shipping label due to a center being so far away. Tech was very nice and handled my needs the best he could. The tech should not have to kick it anywhere. He should have been able to make that choice on his own. Give your people the power to deliver top notch customer service. It's been my experience under situations like this I will have to call again to make this happen. I have owned many receivers over the years; many of them Yamaha which all still work well and I have them in different parts of the home; even outside. This receiver is the most money I ever spent because I am an old Air Force crew chief on fighter jets. In other words why spend tons of money on quality I can't hear anyway. Everyone tells me how great it sounds, so I guess I will take there word on that. The reason I purchased was to make it easy to run wiring and to support the technology of todays TVs. All that is true I love the receiver I just wish it worked.
                With all that said I will update everyone when I get through this. I am just glad it's not football season. Hope for the best moving forward.
                I would say in closing Yahama is a great product, receivers and speakers let's see if their customer service is as good.

                  I am loving my RX-A830. Worth the wait for upgrading my HTR-5250, which still works very well.
                  It's easy to set up.

                  Exceptional Sound Clarity & Definition

                  The overwhelming characteristic of the Yamaha RX-A803 receiver/amp is the exceptional sound quality. I have used a Sony STR-AV920, a Sony STR-DE995, an Onkyo TX-SR803 and an Onkyo TX-NR809 with the same speaker package and the clarity and definition of the sound from the Yamaha is far beyond what these units delivered. The Yamaha easily handles inputs from my cable box, two DVD recorders, a VCR/DVP, Playstation 3, BlueRay and Region Free DVP as well as my TV. My only regret is that I did not buy the RX-A1030 Receiver which has a phonograph input.
