Details from Yamaha

    Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality
    The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity preamplification, anti–vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimize distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti–vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality

    Anti–Resonance Technology Wedge
    The Anti–Resonance Technology Wedge (A.R.T. Wedge) is a fifth foot in the center of the unit. It dampens vibrations from the power transformer, power transistors and heatsinks, as well as vibrations that might be caused by the sound from the speakers.

    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.

    Network Functions
    This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet radio, Pandora®, Rhapsody®, Spotify, SiriusXM Internet Radio and operate your system via WebBrowser Control. The AV Controller App (from iTunes® or Google Play) lets you control various functions from your iPod®, iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ phones/tablets.

    Wi–Fi Built in and Wireless Direct Compatible for Easy Network
    Wi–Fi built in capability allows wireless connection with your household wireless router, greatly simplifying system connections to enjoy network audio and music streaming services. If no Wi–Fi router is available, the unique Wireless Direct feature not only allows you to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet via the AV Controller App's Music Play feature, AirPlay®, etc., but also control your receiver using the AV Controller App.

    AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV Receiver
    This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from iPod touch®, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on Macs or PCs. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can use view metadata such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via AV receiver's on–screen display. *Some models don't support album art display.

    HTC Connect™ for Wireless Streaming
    HTC Connect lets you stream music to your AV receiver wirelessly. You don't need a separate app because HTC Connect is built right into your HTC phone. Simply swiping the HTC phone screen starts music output to the AV receiver, from the HTC device's local music sources or third party music sources.

    MHL® Support for High Quality Video and Audio
    MHL provides easy, direct connection of compatible mobile phones and this AV receiver. Playback of up to 1080p video and multichannel audio from the phones is supported. The receiver also charges the connected phone. Play, stop and other basic operations can be controlled from the remote control.

    Stream Millions of Songs with Spotify Connect
    With the Spotify app on your smartphone, you've got instant access to millions of songs. And now you can stream those songs to your Yamaha system by using Spotify Connect. Just hit play to start streaming music. What's more, when you've been listening on your smartphone outside and come inside, the song immediately streams to your AVR—like magic, you enjoy uninterrupted music. You can also personalize playlists and receive phone calls while listening to music. The Spotify app and premium account are required. Visit spotify.com for more details.

    USB Digital Connection
    A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver's remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone/iPad music playback functions.

    Extensive Audio Codec and Format Support
    This AV receiver is compatible with many audio formats such as Dolby® True HD and DTS–HD Master Audio™. It is also compatible with high resolution audio codec such as FLAC/WAV/Apple® Lossless. You will enjoy excellent sound quality from a Blu–ray Disc™ and other types of high resolution sources.

    Gapless Playback Compatibility Allows Play without Interruption*
    Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way it was meant to be heard. * Compatible with WAV, FLAC and ALAC file formats and input from USB/PC/NAS.

    4K Ultra HD Pass–through and Upscaling, HDMI 2.0
    This AV receiver's HDMI input/output supports 4K Ultra HD video image pass–through. It also can perform 4K Ultra HD upscaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high–def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats. The latest version of HDMI supports 4K Ultra HD 50/60p input for expanding super high definition resolution 4K Ultra HD broadcasting.

    Support for HDMI 2.0 Specification
    This model will support HDMI 2.0 connectivity. It supports 4K Ultra HD 50 Hz/60 Hz signal pass–through to output motion–smooth high definition videos. It also supports RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2 as well as YCbCr 4:2:0 video signal for more vibrant and lifelike images. *Firmware update will be available to support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4 and YCbCr 4:2:2.

    YPAO™ – R.S.C. with Multipoint Measurement
    YPAO – Reflected Sound Control analyzes room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of eight listening positions. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio–quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.
