Product Description

The Yamaha RX-A1080 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.


Home theatre receivers these days are packed full of exciting features, and Yamaha's AVENTAGE RX-A1080 is no exception. It has support for 4K and HDR technology — perfect for the latest Ultra HD TVs and Blu-ray players — plus it decodes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for the most immersive home theatre surround sound to date. It plays high-resolution music files and even cleans up lower-resolution audio so you can enjoy music with detail and clarity from any source. Add high-quality construction and top-notch audio and video performance to that list, and you'll see the 'A1080 has a good bit more to offer than your average receiver.

Easy Setup & Control: Yamaha's free AV Setup Guide app for iOS and Android tablets 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.

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 centre of the receiver's base dampens internal and external vibrations, and an aluminium front panel further reduces resonance to maximise sound quality. The RX-A1080'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-A1080 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 analog, the built-in phono preamp lets you plug in a turntable and get back in the vinyl groove.

Music & Video In Different Rooms: The RX-A1080's seven-channel amplifier has outputs for nine speakers, giving you flexible configuration options. You can connect seven speakers in your living room, and use the two extra speaker outputs to power a pair of speakers in a second room. That way, you can listen to stereo music in Zone 2 while others watch TV in the main room. When Zone 2 is powered on, Yamaha's Intelligent Amp Assign feature automatically redirects the power for the two surround back channels to your stereo setup in Zone 2, giving you five-channel surround sound in the living room. 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.

Enjoy Digital Radio from DAB / DAB+ Tuner: DAB and the improved DAB+ version is Digital Audio Broadcasting that offers a large selection of radio stations with high sound quality. Other benefits include automatic tuning to available stations with a list to choose from, and display of information such as station name and music genre. The RX-A1080 lets you preset 40 DAB / DAB+ stations.

Surround Sound Formats

The Yamaha RX-A1080 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 theatre with astonishing clarity, power, detail and depth. The RX-A1080 has the processing power to run a more enveloping 5.1.2 channel Dolby Atmos layout utilizing front-height, ceiling mounted, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers (sold separately). A 5.1.2 speaker configuration is based upon a traditional 5.1 speaker layout complemented by two Front Height, Overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
  • 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. As a result, individual sounds are clearer and more distinct. It also improves the surround sound experience across the entire theatre by widening the listening "sweet spot".

RX-A1080 – 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-A1080 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-A1080 name offers full compatibility with Amazon’s range of voice control devices. Welcome to the smart home.
