Yamaha RX-A1080 Aventage is a 7.2-channel AV receiver with enhanced sound quality, high power and exceptional functionality. It offers the ability to add wireless surround speaker/s via MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 alongside Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Compatibility with these amazing sound technologies transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience. They deliver breathtakingly rich and realistic surround sound, positioning and moving individual sounds to any virtual point in your room, including objects moving overhead. Experience the overwhelming realistic movement and immersion in videos — right in your home theatre room.
Cinema DSP 3D
This unique Yamaha proprietary sound field creation technology, was created by combining measured sound field data with digital signal processing. By digitising a vast trove of sound-field data and incorporating it into dedicated LSI devices, it effectively reproduces the spaces of concert halls on home equipment. Immerse yourself in the astounding realism of your movies.
The Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T) Wedge is a fifth foot in the centre 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 providing dynamic sound and focused, accurate reproduction.
YPAO Reflected Sound Control analyses room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of eight listening positions. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalisation, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system, creating an ideal listening space with perfectly balanced sound even over a wide area in larger rooms.
Yamaha AV receivers feature fully discrete power amplifiers to minimise distortion and adopt independent pure power supplies for the analogue and digital circuitry. They also feature ultra-high performance with 384kHz / 32-bit DACs also with independent power supplies for reproducing absolutely all the audio in High Resolution sound sources without noise. A new high sound quality IC is employed for volume control and large heat sinks suppress vibration. These AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.
Wireless Surround Speakers
Combine this AV receiver with the MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless streaming speaker and enjoy the amazing convenience of creating a home theatre with wireless rear speakers. You get stunningly realistic sound with a clean, clutter-free setup. Easily turn your current living room into a special entertainment environment where you can fully enjoy movies and music.
For an easy multi-room audio solution, simply connect all MusicCast devices to the same network and start sharing audio throughout the home. Take MusicCast for a test drive by downloading the free MusicCast app and using its demo mode.
Explore a world of music with music streaming services built-in. Syncing your playlists and song likes from your smart phone or computer to the RX-A880, music streaming services make it impossibly easy to either listen to your favourites or discover new music.
With the power of Cinema DSP 3D, the Virtual Presence Speaker function makes full use of centre and surround speakers to create audible information from where presence (height) speakers are normally installed. In addition, this model also features a Virtual Surround Back Speaker function. Even without using surround back speakers, you can experience more natural surround sound thanks to Cinema DSP 3D playback — giving you the virtual equivalent of up to 9.1-channel surround, even with a 5.1-speaker configuration.
2 HDMI + Phono Input
Since the RX-A880 has two HDMI output terminals, simultaneous connection to the TV and LCD projector is possible. Which means you can use your TV as usual but use the projector for your favourite movies and special programming easily and without having to change any connections. The built-in HDMI functionality is of the latest specifications, corresponding also to HDR (Dolby Vision Compatible, Hybrid Log-Gamma), 4K / 60p passthrough & 4K upscaling, and so on. This AV receiver provides phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection.
You can add an external power amplifier (pre-main amplifier) to this AV receiver to improve and enhance the sound of your speakers. For example, using a power amplifier to drive the important front channel in home theatre gives you the added flexibility of building a system with an emphasis on sound quality.
Digital Audio Broadcasting capability, with DAB and the enhanced DAB+, offers a large selection of radio stations with high sound quality. Other benefits include automatic selection of available stations from a convenient list, and helpful information display, including station name and music genre.
Alexa on MusicCast
With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. The RX-A880 offers full compatibility with Amazon’s range of voice control devices. Welcome to the smart home.
AV Controller App
This easy-to-use app lets you conveniently and ‘smartly’ control your AV receiver’s power, volume, input selections, DSP modes and much, much more from an iOS or Android device. You can also use as many as 23 different languages and customise the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.
The latest graphical user interface from Yamaha has a high-resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and includes a selectable status bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode and audio format. The GUI provides a choice of eight languages.
Featuring Zone2 compatible speaker terminals, this system can send the same (or even different) AV contents playing in the main room for playing in another room. For example, if you’ve got speakers installed in your bedroom or kitchen, you can go to that other room and enjoy listening to the same or different main room content.
This AV receiver features bi-amping capability, driving the treble and bass ranges of the front speakers (L, R) with independent amplifiers, making it possible to enjoy even higher quality sound from the front channels — an important consideration in home theatre setups.
The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimised for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, energetic sound quality during wireless playback.
