Product Description

Yamaha RX-A3070 AV Receiver + MusicCast is part of the Aventage series of AV receivers that are celebrated for their blend of durable construction and wide-ranging, detailed sound. This 9.2 channel receiver showcases anti-resonance technology, Bluetooth connectivity and can be connected to your home system via Yamaha’s MusicCast technology.

Cinema DSP HD3

RX-A3070 supports Dolby Atmos and DTS-X playback with Cinema DSP HD3. It 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.

Now equipped with three original high-performance DSP devices, RX-A3070 achieves high speed and large capacity audio signal processing so playback of up to 11.1 channels is possible even with a 7.1-channel speaker configuration. The total reproduction of spatial data, including the vertical axis, helps create an overwhelmingly realistic sound field.

Speaker Layout Patterns

Yamaha provides multiple placement patterns for presence speakers that support Dolby Atmos, creating a sound field that’s ideal for your setup. Any layout can be appropriately reproduced, including the three-dimensional space of Cinema DSP as well as Dolby Atmos.

YPAO R.S.C optimises the listening environment and fundamental high-quality audio design takes full advantage of the detailed spatial localisation capability of Dolby Atmos. The combination of Dolby Atmos and Yamaha AV receivers will fill the room with multidimensional sound that makes you feel as if you are right in the middle of the story unfolding on the screen.

Enhanced New Cinema Sound

Marking thirty years since the release of the first Cinema DSP-1, Yamaha has developed an enhanced next-generation Cinema DSP sound field programme installed in the RX-A3070, featuring a new sound field processing algorithm for motion and spatial representation data. Enhanced handles not only the rear surround field but also the front presence field and independent left and right fields (stereo), tracking sound source movement in all directions for uniquely uniform sound.

Aventage AV Receivers

This high-performance AV receiver is based on the concept of providing a massive, full-bodied sound for movie sound effects and the accurate reproduction of music sources. Every Aventage model has the ability to reproduce the most subtle details of HD sound.

The aluminium front panel is used to effectively shield sensitive circuitry from external noise and electronic radiation generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors etc. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments.

H-shaped Cross Member

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, maintaining the highest audio quality.

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.

Symmetrical Power Amp Layout

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 signal to noise ratio and also helps to achieve a wide, open sound stage.


Flagship RX-A3070 features ESS’s 32-bit SABRE PRO Premier DAC ES9026PRO. This patented 32-bit Hyper Stream, THD compensation function works to minimise noise levels. In combination with Yamaha’s original D.O.P.G concept, which eliminates the potential difference between audio circuit stages to reduce ground noise, it dramatically enhances silence and resolution over the entire audio range for rich and expressive reproduction of even the most delicate sounds.

XLR Input Terminal

The RX-A3070 comes equipped with XLR balanced audio input terminal that has an outstanding reputation in the world of professional audio. In combination with a Blu-ray Disc player equipped with balanced output terminal, this enables high-quality signal transmission with reduced degradation of sound quality due to external noise. The balanced input terminal even features gold-plated XLR terminal produced by Neutrik.

MusicCast Entertainment

MusicCast employs a high-performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. It can also share the music from external devices such as a TV or Blu-ray Disc player connected to the RX-A3070. Audio content from Bluetooth connected smartphones or tablets can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.

Bluetooth functionality lets you enjoy easy wireless music playback from smartphones and other devices. The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimised for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, lively sound quality during wireless playback.

4K Ultra HD Full Support

This AV receiver completely supports latest HDMI standards. Thanks to transmission of 4K video at 60 frames per second pass-through, you can fully enjoy the high definition video quality of 4K without degradation. It also adheres to the HDCP2.2 copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission. It also supports HDR Video including Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma which provides incredible contrast, smooth tone and rich, bright colours.

It supports the wider colour gamut of BT.2020 pass-through. This AV receiver is also compatible with 3D, Audio Return Channel and CEC for easy operation. This AV receiver includes 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.

Wi-Fi Built-in and Wireless Direct

Wi-Fi Built-in capability allows wireless connection with your household wireless router. The unique Wireless Direct feature not only allows you to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet via AV Controller App's Music Play feature, iOS's AirPlay etc, but also control your receiver using the AV Controller app.

DAB and the improved DAB+ offers a large selection of radio stations with high sound quality. This automatically tunes to available stations and displays information such as station name and music genre. The RX-A3070 lets you preset 40 DAB / DAB+ stations.

Extensive Codec/ 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 DSD / AIFF / FLAC / WAV / Apple Lossless. You will enjoy excellent sound quality of various high resolution audio codec from USB and network content. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files for playback the way it was meant to be heard.

Total Purity Concept

This encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimise distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analogue and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analogue circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure.

Virtual Presence Speaker

This function uses the centre and surrounds to create virtual presence speakers for surround sound even where speaker installation is limited. The Virtual Cinema Front feature lets you place two surround speakers and a centre speaker at the front to enjoy virtual 7-channel surround sound with even higher quality and resolution, as well as superior rear virtual sound localisation.

Zone Extra Bass

Use the Extra Bass feature to amplify bass tones in your main room and also on systems in other rooms (Zones 2 and 3). Even with compact or in-wall speakers, you’ll hear all your sources with powerful bass.

Improved Sound Imaging

The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. Subwoofer Trim separates the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly stabilising the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.

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.

Intelligent Amp Assign

Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers. When Zone 2 is on, power to the two Surround Back channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2, and the Main Zone will receive 7.1 channels of power so there’s no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the receiver.

Lower Power Consumption

Yamaha’s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. With an advanced energy saving design, this AV receiver achieves a low power consumption of no more than two watts when in Network Standby mode.
