Product Description

Yamaha RX-A2070 AV Receiver + MusicCast is a pristinely designed 9.2 channel AV receiver that combines richly resonant bass sound and high-calibre sound performance, within a visually stunning, structurally resilient frame.

Dolby Atmos and DTS-X Playback

This AV receiver supports Dolby Atmos and DTS-X playback with CINEMA DSP HD3. 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. Yamaha provides multiple placement patterns for presence speakers that support Dolby Atmos, creating a sound field that’s ideal for your setup. YPAO R.S.C. which optimises the listening environment and fundamental high-quality audio design takes full advantage of the detailed spatial localisation capability of Dolby Atmos.

Enhanced - New Cinema Sound

Marking thirty years since the release of the first CINEMA DSP-1 unit, Enhanced next-generation CINEMA DSP sound field programme installed in the RX-A2070, featuring a new sound field processing algorithm that further elevates its ability to process the motion and spatial representation data found in the latest audio-visual media including three-dimensional surround formats. The result is a natural sound field effect that follows every sound source, including objects present in the most modern formats, and delivers dynamic sensations of motion and spatiality that faithfully reflect the spirit of the filmmaker’s vision.

Aventage AV Receivers

Based on the audio design concept of providing a massive, full-bodied sound for movie sound effects and the accurate reproduction of music sources, RX-A2070 expertly harmonises traditional and advanced technologies resulting in the ability to reproduce the most subtle details of high-definition sound. The Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge is a fifth foot in the centre 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.

H-shaped Cross Member Frame

The interior of the receiver is reinforced with cross members in an H shape to provide an extremely rigid and stable frame. This reduces chassis vibration to virtually zero even during high volume output (seemingly minor vibrations can affect the sound), maintaining the highest audio quality. The interior of the unit has been precisely planned, circuit-routed and built so that the left and right channels are physically and electrically isolated. This naturally maximises channel separation, but also greatly improves the signal to noise ratio and also helps to achieve a wide, open sound stage.

Pro Quality Digital Audio by ESS DACs

Incorporating the SABRE 9006A 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.

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. RX-A2070 lets you preset 40 DAB/+ stations.

Total Purity Concept

The Total Purity Concept encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.

Yamaha Video Processing

Yamaha’s high-end video projector engineering expertise has produced various advanced processing techniques that are applied to this AV receiver. These include edge adaptive deinterlacing to smooth out jaggy noise, motion adaptive deinterlacing to detect moving or still images for precise pixel-by-pixel processing and multi-cadence detection including 3-2 pull-down. Proper processing makes viewing enjoyment complete no matter what video source or content.

Virtual Presence Speaker

The Virtual Presence Speaker function makes full use of centre and surround speakers to create virtual presence speakers. Enjoy CINEMA DSP 3D Mode surround sound even in environments where speaker installation is limited. In addition, this model also features a Virtual Surround Back Speaker function. Even without using surround back speakers, you can experience more natural sound from behind you.

Extra Bass

Yamaha’ s exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localisation and sound balance even with compact front speakers. When a subwoofer is used, it improves the volume of the entire low range of the speaker system, not only the front speakers, but also enhancing the bass from the subwoofer. You'll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.

Advanced HDMI Zone Switching

While standard HDMI zone switching can only send HD video programmes to the main and second zones, Yamaha’s Advanced HDMI Zone Switching adds the capability to choose from all audio and video sources for playback in either zone. An on-screen graphical user interface makes it easy to browse and select content to enjoy from the second zone no matter what is being played in the main zone.

Intelligent Amp Assign

Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on what functions are selected. For example, in a 9.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is off, all 9.1 channels will be used in the Main Zone. There’s no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the receiver.

ECO mode

Yamaha’s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.
