Enjoy a new sense of realism from your home cinema, with the Yamaha RX-A1080.

Your personal cinema – Surround:AI

Surround:AI gives the ultimate surround sound – scene by scene. Powerful processing from the DSP (Digital Sound Processor) analyses scenes in real time and then adjusts the surround effect in real time. By focusing on distinct sounds, such as dialogue, background music and sound effects, the RX-A1080 automatically optimises the sound for incredible realism.

Cinema DSP HD3 with Rear Virtual Presence Speaker
The same powerful processor is also able to create the effect of an 11.1 system using just a 7.1 speaker configuration. With VPS (Virtual Presence Speaker) technology in play you get enhanced spatial data, giving a totally immersive sound stage from fewer speakers than before.

Cut the wires to your rear speakers
New to this year’s Aventage range is the option to add wireless rear speakers. Combine this receiver with the Yamaha MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 speakers and you can leave aside speaker cable connections. Perfect if you have a solid floor and struggle to hide speaker cable or if you simply want a cleaner style, wireless surround speakers cut down on the clutter.

Recreate the sound from the best cinemas, with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Aventage quality
This Aventage AV receiver boasts exceptional construction quality. Anti-Resonance Technology (ART) makes this AVR exceptionally resistant to mechanical and electrical interference. ART encompasses an H-shape cross member frame and rigid chassis with additional bottom frames, anti-vibration heatsinks and even a fifth damping foot, helping give the RX-A1080 its superb detail and resolution. With a punchy 110 watts of power (at 8 ohms), the RXA1080 is powerful enough for larger rooms and all speaker types.

Comprehensive sockets including three HDMI outputs
Paired with the HDMI inputs, the RX-A1080 boasts no fewer than three HDMI outputs. This lets you connect a TV and projector in your main room and a second TV in another room. With the sockets compatible with HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and BT.2020 they’re also suitable for use with sources such as UHD Blu-ray players.

Dedicated HDMI Zone B
The RX-A1080 also benefits from a dedicated Zone B output. Zone switching lets you watch and listen to one source in a room and another in a different room. The second zone can also make use of the dedicated pre-amp or speaker outlets for complete independence. Further bonuses include Zone Extra Bass and Zone Volume Equaliser for tailored sound in your second zone.

Alexa voice control now available
With Alexa voice control integration, if you want something, all you have to do is ask. Working in conjunction with Yamaha’s MusicCast system, the RX-A1080 effortlessly plays your music requests. Compatible with Amazon’s range of voice control devices, the RX-A1080 blends seamlessly with your smart home system.

Multi-room, MusicCast system
The Yamaha RX-A1080 is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast, you can control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or even Amazon Alexa by voice. Play the same music on all the components or split the sound into different zones for different moods in each room; the choice is yours. The MusicCast CONTROLLER app lets you operate the system around your home and change settings quickly and easily.

Stream your favourite music services
Compatible with Spotify Premium, Pandora, Napster, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz, the RXA1080 is fully equipped for your favourite music streaming service. With Tidal and Qobuz already offering higher resolution playback, it’s now possible to find a streaming service that at least matches the quality of CD and, in some cases, even improves upon it.

Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth also included
As well as MusicCast, the RXA1080 also has built-in Apple AirPlay, letting you stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. You can also view data such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen display. *Some models don't support album art display. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you also have Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Digital radio standard
With both DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) and FM tuners built-in, this Yamaha is ideally equipped for listening to a wide range of stations. Select DAB for a vast range of digital radio stations, including the popular BBC 6 Music, 4 Extra and 5 live. DAB also lets you hear crisp, digital clarity of sound, free from interference. For local stations or a more expansive sound with national stations (roof mounted aerial recommended) FM is also on hand.

Make the hub of your home cinema more versatile than ever, with the Yamaha RX-A1080.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha AVR1080 & Q Acoustics 3050i 5.1 order 1 day arrived the next. Fantastic service. Sound quality is simply superb. Used to have a garden classical party. Couldn't praise it highly enough. Would definately use Richer Sounds in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and simple to use, but boy it's big I bought this over the V685 as it gave me a full set of pre-outs and the build quality was a step up and I'm glad I spent the extra money. It's a bit of a beast, especially the depth where the addition of the bluetooth aerial on the rear makes it fractionally too deep to sit flush in my TV cabinet. Fabulously easy to setup and endless amounts of adjustment made it suitable for my longish room and less-than ideal speaker positioning. Highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid build. Large display Feels solidly built. Speaker cable connections have an odd layout in the sense they are vertical rather than horizontal making bare wire connections a little awkward. Nice remote but too many functions which aren’t user friendly. Setup is not as easy as the competition. The menu system is not logical and one has to figure out what each item means. Calibration only instigates once the mic is plugged in. This process is straight forward. However, no mic stand is provided which means one will need to purchase a tripod. Sounds great. But then its a case of leave and forget rather than fiddling about in the menu system. The pass through function did not auto detect my Sky Q box. So had to manually change to the correct input on the Amp and remember to leave it on that before switching off. Overall, if you’re prepared to spend time with the menu system and figure out what settings sound best, then this AVR wont disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A surprising upgrade. I bought the RXA1080 because our old RXA1030 had started to feel dated in terms of connection more than anything else, it and its capabilities being unrecognised by our 2019 Samsung QLED for example. I was still perfectly happy with the sound of the older machine. However the RXA1080 presents superior sound on very level, with its proprietary AI system proving particularly impressive. It is also, despite what What HiFi may say, very good with music, handling tracks from the intertwined instrumentation of jazzers and The Grateful Dead to solo recorder by Lucy Horsch with equal clarity and precision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product all round I purchased the Yamaha RXA1080 to replace a Pioneer SC-LX 57 following a detailed look at all specifications of all the top receivers. It was obvious from the reviews that the Denon was the award winner, however I just do not like the Denon sound as it is too warm with not enough detail for my ears. This Yamaha is simply outstanding and in my book sounds much better than the Denon or Onkyo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha rxa1080 Had this for about 3 weeks now absolutely love it! The USB port for flac files is great and sounds amazing!! The dolby atmos is fantastic,its looks a beast too!! Highly recommended

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yamaha RXA1080 Not really impressed with the sound quality of this amp 7.1 seems sluggish and a week of setting up to get some high treble half the Hall etc appear to have very little affect on sound running through wharfdale diamond,s and radus 270 fronts For the money was expecting more when compared to my old thx pioneer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Honestly I used Sony before and sorry but Yamaha is much much better. Sound is amazing, easy settings.
