For Sound Purity

Highly Rigid Construction

The AVENTAGE model RX-A1080 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.

Optimum Performance

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.

Professional Grade

ESS SABRE™ ES9007S Premier DAC

Incorporating the SABRE ES9007S 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.

Professional-grade Sound Optimization

YPAO™ – R.S.C. with Multi-Point Measurement and Precision EQ

YPAO-R.S.C. (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 uses precision EQ calculation to achieve the most natural room acoustics possible and 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.

The Heart of the Smart Home.

 

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.

Multi-room Audio

MusicCast

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.

A World of Music

Streaming Services

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 RX-A1080, 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

The RX-A1080 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.

Convenient Enjoyment

Three HDMI Outputs

Since the RX-A1080 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

Phono Input

This AV receiver provides phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection.

Enhanced Home Theater Sound

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 theater gives you the added flexibility of building a system with an emphasis on sound quality.

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.

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 Different Rooms

HDMI Zone Switching

You can transmit the video or audio content to a TV or home theater 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.

Even Higher Quality Sound

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 theater setups.

Brilliant and Lively

Music Enhancer

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

This special app assists you with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices. Additionally, it guides you through various settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amplifier assignments.

Save Energy by 20%

Eco Mode

When ECO Mode is turned on it can reduce power consumption by about 20 percent*, thanks to an advanced energy saving design. *Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
