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 Perfect high end AV at a mid range price Now had this for a couple of weeks so still learning! So far I’m really happy. Giving me top quality sound and vision from multiple sources whilst also acting as an output for karaoke through a separate mixer. Great unit with lots of great features!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive with the sound quality and ease of set I spent a lot of time considering which receiver to buy to replace my faulty flagship Denon AVC A1 Amp and I knew that whichever machine I bought it would have a hard act to follow. I have been amazed at the improvement in the sound quality, the Denon was over 10 years old and I can appreciate that technology has moved on. Very happy with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Bought this two weeks ago from Richer Sounds, Botley. Pros : It supports my current configuration (reuse old speakers) while it is very likely future proof in case I decide to make changes. So, I did not need to buy anything extra other than this unit itself Cons : Could be cheaper. Needs a video monitor for at least the set up. App could be cleaner. For some operations, the audio switches off when the video monitor is switched off, even when you are playing just audio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and service This was recommend by Josh the salesperson in the MK store after I’d explained our previous Yamaha amp had broken. His choice was excellent, the amp sounds brilliant and is easier to use than our previous one when swapping between different sources.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha rx-a1080. Awesome piece of kit. Bought this amp a few weeks ago I am so glad I went for this model. This is an awesome piece of kit the clarity and the definition in sound is amazing. Makes a massive change from my Onkyo. Wont be going there again. Yamaha is the one. I dealt with a sound fellas named Levi at the Leicester branch he knows his stuff.

HIGH recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Performance and flexibility I bought this with a set of MA Silver speakers to replace a Sony receiver with an intermittent fault and to improve the aesthetics of our lounge with better looking speakers. The receiver is excellent but is not ideal for retro geeks like me who still have a Minidisk deck and a multi format Pioneer DVD/CD player with multi-channel outputs for surround audio formats not supported by HDMI. The Yamaha has no discrete multi channel audio analogue inputs and also has no analogue or optical digital outpost for external devices. (You could use the zone output for a stereo analogue output). However, it is not alone in this so I just had to accept I have to get up to date. It has everything you need for todays standards and sounds excellent. I have a large CD collection but the use of the TIDAL app with FLAC support means only the rare stuff needs to resort to using a physical disk. For vinyl threes a "Phono" analogue input but this highlights to me the major failing. The amp is great but the manual is inadequate. Is the Phono input line level or is the phono stage built in? There is insufficient information on the inputs and surprisingly the online manual isn't much better. At the moment my turntable is on an Aux input but I am looking at the Yamaha Muscat turntable for my next upgrade which will sort that. Overall an excellent product for todays market which sounds great (to me) for music and Video, only let down by the manual and lack of legacy audio support. The missing star is for the manual as I know most people have moved into this century.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and excellent features I purchased this AVR amp during the Christmas holidays from Richer Sounds, Hanley (thanks Nat!) as a replacement for my RX-V675 amp. The difference in sound quality is amazing, driving my speaker system (Audio Monitor Bronze BX5 AV package) with a sparkle and clarity I wouldn't have believed to be possible. Set-up was a breeze, and the automatic calibration was simple to use and gives excellent results. I would have no hesitation to recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great AVR Very good sound, to my ears noticeably better than Denon and other competitors. Loads of features and very customisable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Music and films equally well I was after a surround receiver to go with Monitor audio silver 6 speakers, which would be used for music as well as films. It doesn't disappoint. Easy on the ear. Lots of detail, soundscape and well controlled base. Lacks punch a bit but that may be the speakers, however I plan to add a centre, sub and rears at some point. Plenty of features and adjustments available. Setup of bluetooth, fm and other inputs no problem, auto calibrate for the room worked really well. Blueray films sparkle. A really rich listenable sound with music and film. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Amp. Powerful yet warm Had Yamaha years ago and switched to Denon, seen the RXA 1089 and wanted it. So glad I bought it. Full sound, easy to set up. Movies sound fab and music sounds great. Dolby Atmos comes out so clear, fantastic amp matched with fab service from the Glasgow guys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and great sounding Yamaha receiver I brought the RX 1080 fro richer Chiswick. I wanted to upgrade to an av receiver from a music playing amp but still be able to listen to cds. This receiver certainly does the job. Thanks to Steve with help setting up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding with great features I've been looking for an AVR for a while and when I learned about the RXA 1080 I decided to take the plunge. Steve at the Reading branch gave great advice and assistance as ever. Setup was pretty straightforward and the auto-tuning of speakers using YPAO was very easy. It sounds great with different music sources and movie playback is immense. I'm enjoying watching all my blu-rays again! Very happy with the purchase!
