Product Description

The Yamaha RX-A2080 AVENTAGE Network AV Receiver features Dolby Atmos & DTS:X compatibility for genuine 3D surround sound in your own home. Also featuring High Resolution audio playback support, 4K Ultra HD full support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Built-in, and audiophile design for detailed audio reproduction.

Overview

The Yamaha Aventage RX-A2080 is the latest in a series of highly successful models going back over several years. Last year we wondered whether there could be anything else added to this truly impressive line-up. And now there is Dolby Vision compatibility and this will be a definite "yes" for the movie fans and we will discuss that in more detail further down the page, but the addition of a DAB+ radio tuner is a big, big plus for those living in the reception areas which is most of the Aussie population. I think we're all starting to realise that AM radio days are numbered but it is good to see that most are either now on FM or DAB or in the case of the '2080 - both.

However, the main thrust of Yamaha's penultimate Aventage RX-A2080 receiver is still to offer the most flexible home theatre and multi-room options - in addition to the most immersive surround sound formats to date - Dolby Atmos and DTS:X - to the consumer. With full support for cutting-edge 4K and HDR (High Dynamic Range) video technology, this powerful receiver works beautifully with the latest Ultra HD TVs and Blu-ray players although their days seem to be numbered with online streaming now a reality. Of course 4K upscaling adds detail to older video content. Stream music from a variety of sources and enjoy high-resolution music, in your living room, or in any room in your house with MusicCast wireless multi-room audio playback. With high-resolution audio playback and a Compressed Music Enhancer for lower-resolution audio and Bluetooth streams, you can take full advantage of the vast selection of wireless music this receiver offers.

Amplifier Power & Features

The Aventage line of Yamaha 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 harmonising traditional and advanced technologies, every factor that affects sound quality, from materials & parts construction to circuitry layout, vibration damping, and "fine-tuning" the sound, is handled with no other thought than to achieve the best possible audio quality.

  • High Drive Amp Technology: A fully discrete power amplifier helps maximize sound and minimize distortion of the receiver. The Yamaha RX-A2080 AV Receiver is equipped with a 9-channel amplifier rated at 140 Watts (into 8 Ohms, driving 2 channels) which provides high dynamic power with low-impedance drive capability. You can never have too much power and this will power the majority of speakers in a medium to large room. There are pre-amp outputs to add extra amplification as well as Intelligent Amp Assign.
  • Intelligent Amp Assign: This feature automatically assigns amplifier channels of the Yamaha AV receiver to certain speakers depending on what speaker layout has been selected and what content is being played back. You can connect up to eleven speakers to the AV receiver and it will determine which nine speakers need amplification. You can choose from a variety of amplifier speaker layout configurations.
  • Symmetrical Power Amplifier Layout: The interior of the unit has been precisely planned, circuit-routed and built so that the left & right channels are physically and electrically isolated which naturally maximises channel separation and improves signal to noise ratio. The benefit? This helps to achieve a wide, open sound stage.
  • Ultra-High Performance 32-Bit DACs: The Yamaha RX-A2080 uses high performance ESS Sabre32 Ultra 192kHz/32-bit DACs (ES9016S) for the seven main channels (not Presence channels which use ES9006A Sabre Premier 192kHz/24-bit DACs). With ESS patented 32-bit Hyperstream DAC architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator, the ES9016 SABRE32 Ultra DACs deliver spectacular music and music soundtracks with an unsurpassed sound stage, with up to 124 dB dynamic range and 0.0003% (-110 dB) total harmonic distortion and free from clock jitter common in digital audio systems. This AV receiver's sound reproduction is for the most discriminating of listeners.

Surround Sound Formats

The Yamaha RX-A2080 AV receiver goes beyond regular surround with the latest immersive surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos & DTS:X.

  • Dolby Atmos: The Yamaha AV receiver will enhance properly designed systems with Dolby Atmos where sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail and depth. The RX-A2080 has the processing power to run a more enveloping 7 or 9 channel Dolby Atmos layout using 5.2.2, 5.2.4, 7.2.2, or 7.2.4 configurations utilizing ceiling mounted, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers (sold separately).
  • DTS:X: This is the next generation object-based, multi-dimensional audio technology from DTS. Unbound from channels, DTS:X conveys the fluid movement of sound to create an incredibly rich, realistic and immersive soundscape - in front of, behind, beside and above the audience - more accurately than ever before. DTS:X offers the ability to automatically adapt the audio to the speaker layout that best fits your space.
  • Dolby Surround: Enhance your 2 channel and multichannel movie soundtracks using your existing 5 channel, 7 channel or Dolby Atmos speaker setup. Dolby Surround enhances audio definition by improving the spatial dimension and overall audio definition of movie soundtracks. It does this by using four distinct surround zones that provide greater control over the exact placement of each detail in a movie sound track, so audio can be matched more accurately to the video on screen; this means more depth and greater realism for your movies.

The Aventage Difference

For their Aventage-series receivers, Yamaha uses custom-designed parts with anti-resonance technology to reduce distortion caused by vibration. A rigid H-shaped frame adds stability to cut out chassis vibration almost completely. A specially designed fifth foot at the center of the receiver's base dampens internal and external vibrations, and an aluminum front panel further reduces resonance to maximize sound quality. The RX-A2080's meticulous construction, combined with its symmetrical amplifier layout and low-jitter PLL circuitry, results in accurate playback, precise stereo imaging, and a wide, natural soundstage.

More Music Choices: The RX-A2080 has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Apple AirPlay all built in, so you have loads of options for wireless music streaming. Get music from around the world with vTuner Internet radio. There's built-in support for Pandora and Spotify Connect, so you can play and control your custom content directly through the receiver. You can also stream audio via Bluetooth to a compatible pair of Bluetooth headphones — great for late-night TV viewing — or to a compatible wireless speaker. Switching from digital to analogue, the built-in phono preamp lets you plug in a turntable and get back in the vinyl groove.

Music & Video In Up To Four Rooms: The RX-A2080 lets you expand music and video playback to different rooms. Play music in up to two additional rooms, and you can still enjoy five- or seven-channel surround sound in your home theatre. If you have nine speakers connected in your living room, Yamaha's Intelligent Amp Assign feature automatically powers them all when the second and third zones aren't in use. A second HDMI output lets you select an independent source for playback on a TV in an additional room, making it easy to put on a movie for the kids in one room while you catch up on your TV shows in the other.

MusicCast Wireless Freedom: MusicCast makes it easy to build a whole-home wireless audio system with compatible Yamaha wireless speakers and sound bars. You'll have plenty of sources to choose from, including your personal digital music library, Internet radio and popular streaming services. You can also play Bluetooth sources, like your phone or tablet, sound from your TV, and even CDs and vinyl. MusicCast also supports high-resolution audio formats. MusicCast works with your home's existing WiFi router and Yamaha's free MusicCast App for Apple iOS 9.0+ and Android OS 4.1+. You'll be able to stream the receiver's tuner, inputs, Bluetooth, and network sources to other MusicCast products installed in your home. In addition, you'll be able to stream your MusicCast products' sources to the AV receiver. 

Easy Setup & Control: Download Yamaha's free AV Controller App on to your Apple (iOS 9.0+) iPod/iPhone/iPad orAndroid (OS 4.1+) smartphone/tablet and turn your mobile device into a Wi-Fi enabled remote control for the Yamaha AV receiver. The free app takes you step-by-step through the connection process. The simple yet sophisticated YPAO calibration system uses an included setup microphone to analyse your speakers and your room's acoustics to optimise your system's sound. The comprehensive, customisable AV Controller app turns your compatible mobile device into an ultra-convenient Wi-Fi remote. Your Apple iOS or Android device must be connected to the same home network as the Yamaha AV receiver.

RX-A2080 – What’s New?

Surround:AI: The AI technology built into the DSP analyses the scene of the entertainment content and then creates the optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the greatest effect. This AI instantaneously analyses scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds and sound effects, and automatically optimises the surround effect in real time, just as if a Yamaha sound engineer tunes the best sound specifically for you. This creates a compelling sense of realism with expressive power beyond conventional sound field effects, giving you the most profound entertainment experience possible.

Dolby Atmos® and DTS-X™ Playback with CINEMA DSP HD3: This AV receiver supports Dolby Atmos and DTS-X playback with CINEMA DSP HD3, taking the surround sound experience to new heights. The revamped CINEMA DSP HD3 features new signal processing algorithms and three sets of high performance processors. This maximises theatre sound effects, accurately reproducing a new dimension of realism for a sound field with a rich sense of presence and no feeling of boundaries. You will experience a realistic cinema sound field with the sense of truly being immersed in the movie scene.

Wireless Surround Speakers with MusicCast Surround: 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. What’s more, 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.

Three HDMI Outputs: Since the RX-A2080 has three HDMI output terminals, simultaneous connection to the TV, LCD projector and other devices, is possible. Which means, for example, that you can use your TV as usual but use the projector for your favourite movies and special programming, or have the same main room content shown in other rooms as well — easily and without having to change any connections. Naturally, 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.

Alexa on MusicCast: “Alexa, ask MusicCast to play Favourite 1 in the Kitchen.” With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. The RX-A2080 name offers full compatibility with Amazon’s range of voice control devices. Welcome to the smart home.

The Aventage RX-A2080 gives you the best of both worlds; fun features and fantastic sound to heighten your enjoyment of music, movies, TV and video games. And of course with Dolby Atmos, and MusicCast this receiver is hot to trot for the best movie experience. It has got enough power to drive many of our favourite speakers.
