Featuring Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the Yamaha RX-V6A takes home cinema to a new dimension.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for three-dimensional sound
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X use ceiling or up-firing speakers for three-dimensional and fully immersive sound. Whether it’s rain falling in a tropical jungle or the intense sound of overhead gunfire, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X put you in the centre of the action. DTS Neural:X offers an even more immersive sound, with a heightened sense of realism.

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization for extra height, without the speakers*
As impressive as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound, it’s not always possible to accommodate the extra speakers. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization technology goes some way to help. Play any Dolby format and enjoy a more immersive sound with virtual height enhancement – using your existing speakers to deliver an enhanced sound. *via firmware update.

Compatible with the next generation of high resolution – 8K*
Featuring a trio of 8K compliant HDMI inputs and matching output, this Yamaha AVR is ready for the next generation of TV. If you’ve not yet made the jump to 8K TV, the sockets also handles up to 4K/120Hz signals, for the highest quality pass through. Upscaling to UHD 4K is also standard. *via firmware update.

Supports Dolby Vision and HDR10+*
Using a 7/1 (in/out) HDMI interface, the RX-V6A supports your full system. It also supports a wide range of High Dynamic Range video formats. These include Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG. It also supports HDR10+, which enhances picture realism by sending dynamic Meta data to your TV. *via firmware update.

Game on*
The latest HDMI support also marks a big improvement in gaming. 4K/120Hz and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) support maximise resolution and clarity. Quick Frame Transport (QFT) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) help eliminate lag and frame tearing, giving you a smoother, more responsive gaming experience. *via firmware update.

Powerful precision
For precise, dynamic sound, the Yamaha RX-V6A uses a powerful, 100 watts, high slew rate amplifier. Ideal for HiRes music and home cinema, the amp powers your music or soundtracks with gusto – keeping you on the edge of your seat during action movies or gaming, and totally bewitched by your favourite music. This design of amplifier can be tricky to optimise, but Yamaha’s unique design achieves dynamic scale while also maintaining a stable signal transmission.

Surround sound, untied
For an easy way to reduce cabling, the RX-V6A offers the option of 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.

Connect more – including a turntable
As well as seven HDMI inputs, this Yamaha AVR also has a wide range of other AV connectivity. Optical coaxial digital inputs are ideal for connecting older devices or upgrading the sound from a compatible CD/Network player. Three analogue inputs are perfect for Hi-Fi components, with the dedicated MM phono input perfect for plugging in a turntable. The Zone 2 output gives you the option of adding a second pair of speakers in another room.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RX-V6A is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast you control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or even Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant 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. *requires third party Alexa or Google device.

Stream the best music services
Compatible with Amazon Music, Spotify Premium, Pandora, Napster, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz, the RXV6A 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.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
As well as MusicCast, the RX-V6A is also compatible with Apple AirPlay 2, letting you stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly, around your home. Just ask Siri where you want the music to play. For a quick and easy connection with your smartphone, use the Bluetooth connection for easy music streaming.

Sleek new style
If you’re used to AV receivers being all bulk and buttons, the RX-V6A will come as a pleasant surprise. Rounded edges give a softer, less imposing style. Yamaha has also kept the button count to a minimum, giving this AVR a much cleaner and fresher aesthetic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks stunning, sounds brilliant After researching various AV Amps, I made the decision to buy the RXV6A. Received the item very quickly and after listening to it, I know I made the right choice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadful connectivity issues I am now on my second unit, the first refused to connect with the Virgin box and playstation 4 but strangely would always connect with the DVD player, I tried exchanging all the HDMI leads from the latest 2.1 8k compatible back to the standard ones and back again in every combination possible. The unit would not allow me to do a firmware update via wifi and I had to resort to downloading the software from the web, this did not always work either. I returned the unit and was given a replacement with very good service, however even the staff struggled to update the unit. Although now it will recognise the Playstation as well, it is still hit and miss as to whether it sees the Virgin box, sometime necessitating everything to be switched off and on repeatedly. My wife cannot use the system, it only has to fault once and she has given up. Much stress involved. I am almost at the point of asking for my money back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but powerful, a great upgrade This is is an upgrade from my previous Yamaha AV Amp. The set up was simple and I used the MusicCast App to to fine tune the settings. Out of the box the sound was a definite upgrade, the surround was more defined and I found the sound more detailed, the Apple Airplay was simple to use. With music the all channel stereo added a new dimension. When using my Blu-ray player, the improvement in the clarity of the sound was a noticeable improvement, the surround was more defined and the sub got a good workout. I have purchased this with future proofing in mind, with the 4k throughput a definite plus. highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha RXV6A I've had this just over a week now. I had a denon AVRx 3300w which I was not happy with musically and lacked that punch. This yamaha doesn't disapoint. Lots of drive and power and sounds really sweet with music and enveloped with movies. The best AV purchase I've made for years and I've purchased alot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Amp, punchy and detailed, but no Dolby Vision Had this amp for a coupe of weeks, and I'm very pleased with the way it sounds. If you need to have it on display, it also looks great: a departure for Yamaha with a minimalist look. In the most part, it's also fairly easy to set up and get going, although I did find the holes in the speaker connection posts rather small for my cables. As I was aware before purchase, there are some functions which are not available out of the box, like HDR10+ and HDMI 2.1. These will need a future firmware update. The unit updated itself fron v1.20 to v1.23 a few days ago, but I don't know what this is for as there's no mention of it in the Yamaha website. DAB reception is a rather sketchy, but that may be down to environmental factors rather than the unit itself. I have no frame of reference for this, so I don't know. I haven't managed to get everything working yet of the functions which are supposed to be available out of the box, namely Dolby Vision and Google Assistant compatibility. Whenever I stream a Dolby Vision file, I get sound from the amp, my new LG OLED CX also identifies the stream as Dolby Vision encoded, but the video is black. Thankfully, my TV and the amp are eARC compatible, so I can stream Dolby Vision via the TV back to the amp and still get full 7.1/5.1.2 sound. Also, I've found no way of making the receiver visible to Google Home. As there is quite a lot of Dolby Vision content on Netflix, it's a shame that the receiver doesn't seem to want to pass it. It's also bugging me that the promised Google Assistant compatibility doesn't seem to work. If these two features worked, the receiver would get a solid 4/5, and a 5 with working HDMI 2.1 when it arrives. All in all a good receiver, but I'd want to see working Dolby Vision, Google Home compatibility and HDMI 2.1 120Hz 4k before marking it up.
