Product Description

Yamaha RX-A2080 Aventage AV Receiver is a 9.2-channel model with superior three-dimensional sound field playback and the latest, most advanced Surround:AI features.


The AI technology built into the DSP analyses the scene of the entertainment content and then creates the optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the greatest effect. This AI instantaneously analyses scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds and sound effects, and automatically optimises 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.

Dolby Atmos and DTS-X

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 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. You will experience a realistic cinema sound field with the sense of truly being immersed in the movie scene.

Highly Rigid Construction

The AVENTAGE model RX-A2080 features a sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminium 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 centre 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.


Incorporating the SABRE 9007S Premier Audio DAC 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.


YPAO-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) analyses 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 optimisation that maximises 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.

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 theatre 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.

Multi-room Audio

MusicCast takes the headache out of multi-room audio. Simply connect all MusicCast devices to the same network and start sharing audio throughout the home. Take MusicCast for a test drive by downloading the free MusicCast app and using it demo mode.

Virtual Speaker Technology

The RX-A2080 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.

Three HDMI Outputs

Since the RX-A2080 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 favourite movies and special programming 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.

7.2-channel Pre-outs

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 theatre gives you the added flexibility of building a system with an emphasis on sound quality. This AV receiver also provides phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection.

DAB/DAB+ Tuner

Digital Audio Broadcasting capability, with DAB and the enhanced DAB+, offers a large selection of radio stations with high sound quality. Other benefits include automatic selection of available stations from a convenient list, and helpful information display, including station name and music genre.

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 customise the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available. With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. The RX-A2080 name offers full compatibility with Amazon’s range of voice control devices. Welcome to the smart home.

HDMI Zone Switching

You can transmit the video or audio content to a TV or home theatre system in another room (Zone 2) via HDMI. This lets you enjoy viewing and listening to the same main room content (where the AV receiver is installed), or even different content.

Bi-amp Connection

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 theatre setups.

Music Enhancer

The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimised for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, energetic sound quality during wireless playback.
