Yamaha have built their reputation with a long history of making musical instruments. Musical instruments produce music so the company has followed a related path of reproducing music and sound as accurately as they can through their hi-fi and home cinema systems. Yamaha was one of the early brands stocked after Rayleigh Hi-Fi first started in business back in 1972.
Rayleigh Sound & Vision have access to any of Yamaha’s Audio Visual products but we are focusing on their 2016 range of Aventage AV receivers which feature five new models, including the £550 UK-tuned RX-A550. Aventage is designed to put a greater focus on performance with Yamaha stating that the new models have been redesigned from the ground up.
In previous years, Aventage receivers have tended to launch closer to £1000. This is the first time Yamaha have had an Aventage model on sale at around £500 – and the addition of UK tuning shows just how much focus Yamaha has placed on this hotly contested pricepoint.
Other models in the Yamaha Aventage range are the RX-A850 (£900), RX-A1050 (£1000), RX-A2050 (£1500), and RX-A3050 (£2000). We also carry the BDA-1040 Blu Ray Player.
All the new models support HDCP 2.2 for 4K compatibility, Bluetooth, wi-fi and high-res music playback, including DSD (5.6MHz), 24-bit/192kHz and FLAC, WAV, AIFF, ALAC, MP3 and WMA files. Dolby Atmos will feature on the RX-A850 and above, while DTS:X comes in at the RX-A1050 and above.
