1. A.R.T. Wedge Helps to Ensure that Vibrations Do Not Affect Sound Quality

The A.R.T. (Anti-Resonance Technology) 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.



2. 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.



3. CINEMA DSP HD3, CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker Provide Unrivaled Surround Sound Performance

CINEMA DSP HD3 literally takes the surround sound experience to new heights. By using four CINEMA DSP engines with advanced 3D processing and two front presence channels in a 9.2-channel configuration, it gives the sound field an enhanced vertical dimension for more realistic and exciting movie sound. CINEMA DSP 3D programs use nine channels to create wide, high and dense sound fields for sensational surround sound. The Virtual Presence Speaker function lets you select a CINEMA DSP 3D program and enjoy three-dimensional sound even without the usual two presence speakers.



4. Network Functions Allow More Sources, Efficient Control

The Yamaha AV Receivers let you connect to a PC for access to Internet Radio, music streaming services, and stored music files. You can also control operation via a web browser from the PC or a PDA. They support the AV Controller app for operating various functions from an iPhone or iPad, and an Android app will also become available. In addition, they are DLNA 1.5 certified.



5. 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 to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone, iPad and other devices. An Android app will be available in the coming months.



6. 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 six languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Russian and Spanish, and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.
