Explosive sound to match the biggest screens – the Yamaha RX-A3080 pulls you into the heart of home cinema action.

9.2 channel flexibility

With 9.2 channels of power, the RXA3080 demonstrates superb flexibility. Choose to go for the ultimate Atmos/DTS:X system and use four ceiling speakers in a 5.2.4 configuration. Alternatively, stick with two ceiling speakers but add two extra effect speakers for an immersive 7.2.2 system. If you’d prefer sound in another room, simply use the extra channels to power multi-room speakers while still retaining a 5.2, 5.2.2 or 7.2 system.

ESS SABRE PRO Ultra DAC for the highest quality sound
At the heart of Yamaha's top AV receiver you'll find ESS's state-of-the-art 32-bit SABRE PRO ES9026PRO Ultra and ES9007S DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor). With THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) compensation, this is one of the lowest noise and most detailed sounding devices there is. Used in combination with Yamaha's DOPG (DAC On Pure Ground) concept, which further reduces noise, it dramatically enhances the dynamic range and clarity of sound. Simply put, with less background noise you hear more detail.

Advantage Aventage
This range-topping Aventage AV receiver also boasts exceptional construction quality. Anti-Resonance Technology (ART) makes this AVR exceptionally resistant to mechanical and electrical interference. ART encompasses a reinforced chassis with H-shape cross member frame, anti-vibration heatsinks and even a fifth damping foot, helping give the RX-A3080 its superb detail and resolution. With a mighty 150 watts of power (at 8 ohms), the RXA3080 delivers room-shaking dynamics.

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-A3080 automatically optimises the sound for incredible realism.

Cinema DSP HD3 with Rear Virtual Presence Speaker
Using powerful DSP processing power, the Yamaha RXA3080 is 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.

Reference connectivity, including XLR balanced
Featuring an XLR balanced audio input, the RX-A3080 makes the ideal amp for your reference quality audio component. XLR outputs are standard on the highest quality CD players and network streamers. This balanced connection offers extremely high resistance to inference, meaning you get to hear every tiny detail of music. For vinyl fans, a phono pre-amp is also built-in.

Dedicated HDMI Zone B
The Yamaha RX-A3080 features a fully independent, second HDMI output. Zone switching lets you watch and listen to one source in a particular 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. Should you prefer to have the same music around your home then switching to Party Mode brings all the zones together.

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-A3080 effortlessly plays your music requests. Compatible with Amazon’s range of voice control devices, the RX-A3080 blends seamlessly with your smart home system.

Multi-room, MusicCast system
The Yamaha RX-A3080 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 RXA3080 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 RXA3080 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best av player ive ever owned I brought this amp 2 weeks ago to replace existing Yamaha amp but this is a fantastic bit of kit. Not only as TV surround sound but for playing music as well. I brought this in the Norwich branch which i have used for last 10 years plus and service is fantastic and a big thanks to Pete.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not totally reliable. This was an extremely impressive unit in every way (including weight!). I would have though it well worth the money but for a reliability issue I would not have expected from this type of upmarket equipment. After about five months it started becoming intermittent on the left rear back channel. I at first suspected the cables/plugs/loudspeaker unit but after replacing them and also swapping the speakers around and checking for short and open circuits with a multimeter and also setting the amplifier back to defaults the random cutting out on the left rear channel persisted. I emailed and telephoned Richer sounds and got the reply that I just had to send it back. I cannot lift this amplifier unaided (we all get older) so I listed it on eBay as faulty and buyer collects and sold it for a fair bit of cash and the buyers took the whole heavy thing away. I would give it 5 stars but because I would not expect upmarket stuff to develop these sort of faults I'll give it one. Also the weight (make sure you are fit).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Dolby Atmos amplifier This is an extremely complex device, so it was well worth my downloading and studying the manual in advance. I also got quick and detailed answers to technical questions by ringing Yamaha Support. The device itself is most impressive (and very heavy - 43 lbs) with a larg number of inputs. If you want to use the full four-speaker overhead Atmos serup you have to provide your own amplifier for the main front speakers: I was happy to do this as I have a Quad 606. The sound is very good, though if you want to use their DSP (added acoustic) effects it's worth being careful and perhaps reducing their level a bit: they do 'spread' the sound on 5.1 very effectvely. However I suspect that the full Atmos 7.4.1 should be left alone as the sound stage is very detailed and I think the effect tend to smear the result. One caveat: if you play a SACD recording (5.0) or a 5.1 movie, the device produces sound from the centre back speakers, even if all effects are off. It shouldn't, but evidently they think it's a good idea, and I don't: it can blur the placing of specific rear effects (though general atmosphere is OK). The only way to avoid this is to go into Pure Direct, which bypasses _all_ the processing (and turns the display off). I would recommend it for enthusiasts with the patience to study the facilities - and the strength to lift it into place! And be prepared for a tangle of wires round the back (see photo).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and sound I’m happy with the personalised service. Strongly recommend Richer sounds over internet shopping- not least they price match

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for stereo listening in 'pure' mode Bought this av to act as both a theatre unit and stereo amp and with the oomph this this has, it performs really well in both areas. Its powering 6ohm Sonus Faber Venere 3's and despite their power hungry nature, this av mates very well. highly recommended.
