9.2-channel AVENTAGE model with superior three-dimensional sound field playback and the latest, most advanced Surround:AI features. Unbridled Performance and Function. This 9.2-channel AV receiver harnesses dual ESS SABRE™ DACs, seven HDMI inputs, three HDMI outputs, Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™, Multi-Zone functionality, Phono input, Wi-Fi®, YPAO™ with Precision EQ and much more.
The AI technology built into the DSP analyzes the scene of the entertainment content and then creates the optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the greatest effect. This AI instantaneously analyzes scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds and sound effects, and automatically optimizes 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.
Thrilling Realism in Surround Sound
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 maximizes theater 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.
For Sound Purity
Highly Rigid Construction
The AVENTAGE features a sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminum front panel. Even more importantly, the unit is exceptionally sturdy, with an interior reinforced with cross members in an H-shape. It also features the Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge, which is a fifth foot in the center of the unit that dampens vibrations from the power transformer and elsewhere. Thanks to these, installation stability is improved and chassis resonance is dispersed, effectively eliminating external vibration, maintaining the highest audio quality.
High Quality Parts
Every single part in an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For AVENTAGE models, extra time is taken to carefully select the most exacting, high-quality parts — including a large-capacity power amplifier unit with damping heat sink, a custom large power transformer, high-performance DSP devices, and so on — in order to achieve the highest performance possible. Moreover, sound technicians employ rigorous testing processes to optimally “tune” the receiver’s sound.
ESS SABRE™ PRO 9007S Premier DACs
Incorporating the SABRE 9007S Premier Audio DACs from ESS Technology to achieve an exceptionally good signal-to-noise ratio and up to 120 dB of dynamic range, this AV receiver produces professional quality digital audio.
Ideal Sound Optimization
YPAO™ - R.S.C. with 3D, Multi-Point Measurement and Precision EQ
YPAO-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) analyzes the room acoustics with the included YPAO microphone to tune your system for the best sound in your unique room. It employs R.S.C. to correct early reflections for studio-quality surround sound. YPAO 3D provides automatic sound parameter optimization that maximizes the 3D sound field effectiveness of CINEMA DSP HD3 as well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Precision EQ calculation achieves the most natural room acoustics possible.
Free and Easy Placement
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 theater 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.

A World of Music
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 receiver, music streaming services make it impossibly easy to either listen to your faves or discover new music. * Music streaming service availability varies by region.
Easily Experience 11-channel Realism
Virtual Speaker Technology
This receiver is equipped with three Yamaha original high performance DSP devices, achieving high speed and large capacity audio signal processing. As a result, CINEMA DSP HD3 playback can reproduce up to 11-channel sound — on even a 7-channel system. The total reproduction of spatial data, including the vertical axis, helps create an overwhelmingly realistic sound field. * Requires connection to a front presence speaker. Dolby Atmos and DTS: X signals cannot be used with these virtual features.
Three HDMI Outputs
Since this receiver 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 favorite movies and special programing, 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.
The Joys of Vintage Vinyl
This AV receiver provides phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection.
Enhanced Home Theater Sound
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 theater gives you the added flexibility of building a system with an emphasis on sound quality
Easy to Use and Multilingual
Advanced Graphical User Interface
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: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.
Playback in Multiple Zones
Advanced HDMI Zone Switching
You can transmit the video or audio content (not only HDMI input, but also other audio sources, such as digital or analog audio, network content and FM/AM radio) to a TV or home theater system in another room (Zone 2/4). This lets you enjoy viewing and listening to the same main room content (where the AV receiver is installed), or even different content. An on-screen graphical user interface makes it easy to browse and select content from the second zone no matter what is being played in the main zone.
Easy Operation, Detailed Settings
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 customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.
Even Higher Quality Sound
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 theater setups.
Brilliant and Lively
The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimized for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, energetic sound quality during wireless playback.
Install with Ease
AV Setup Guide
