"Yamaha delivers the goods with this powerful and articulate AV receiver..." 'What Hi-Fi? award winner 2016'. 5-star review.

The Aventage advantage

As part of Yamaha's prestige Aventage range, the RX-A1060 is something special. Anti-Resonance Technology (ART) makes this AVR exceptionally resistant to mechanical and electrical interference. ART encompasses a full metal casing, anti-vibration heatsinks and even a fifth damping foot, helping give it superb detail and resolution. With a mighty 110 watts of power (at 8 ohms), the RXA1060 matches power with finesse.

Digital precison from the ESS DAC
Featuring a Premier Audio DAC from ESS technologies, the Yamaha RXA1060 delivers professional quality digital audio. With a high signal-to-noise ratio and wide dynamic range, digital audio benefits from ultra-low levels of noise and deep, powerful dynamics. Whether watching a Blu-ray film or listening to streamed music, the benefit to all digital audio is breathtaking to hear.

Ready for DTS:X
DTS:X is the flagship processor from this highly respected tech company. It literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also offers other advantages such as the ability to boost the spatial effect of conventional DTS and easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Engineered for Dolby Atmos sound
Optimised for Dolby Atmos, you can now experience the wonder of Dolby Atmos in your own home. Producing a multi-dimensional and totally immersive sound, Dolby Atmos has been hailed as the greatest advance in surround sound for 20 years - so don't miss out!

Ready for a 4K future
With the Yamaha RXA1060 you don't just get HDMI sockets that pass through 4K, you get 4K upscaling built-in, too. This means that, provided you have a UHD 4K TV, all your HD video sources can be viewed scaled up to glorious 4K. The receiver also features seven HDMI inputs (and both HDMI outputs) with HDCP2.2 spec. This means you'll be able to connect up UHD (Ultra High Definition) sources without any compatibility issues.

Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Yamaha's digital processing are top quality Burr Brown DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor). These not only provide punchy and lifelike sound but also facilitate the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The RXA1060 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXA1060 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 tablet. 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.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can 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've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Wi-Fi, DLNA and a smart app for effortless streaming
With standard Wi-Fi it's easy to make a connection with your home network. A DLNA certified connection also makes streaming a breeze. You can access your stored music from PC, laptop or NAS drive and listen to Internet radio stations and music services. Another great feature is the downloadable Apple or Android app that lets you control many of the receiver's functions from your smartphone, iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or tablet.

Dedicated HDMI Zone B
Like the lower models in the range, the Yamaha RXA1060 features a second HDMI output. Where it goes one better, however, is in making this fully independent. 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. Further bonuses include Zone Extra Bass and Zone Volume Equaliser for tailored sound in your second zone.

Just as serious about sound as it is features, the Yamaha RX-A1060 is bursting with ability.

YAMAHA RXA1060 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great AV to have to have one at home It's my first AV receiver with 5.1 set up. My total budget was around 1K including speakers but when I heard about this receiver through a friend of mine who owns a successor of RX-A1060 which is RX-A3060, I decided to go with this receiver though I spent double the amount of my budget it didn't disappoint me whether it is a movie or song, it produces what it was intended to deliver. I am very much happy with the receiver. It's just couple of weeks with this wonderful machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hefty price, but good performance Connectivity is pretty good, sound quality is excellent, and getting around the options is not bad, if a bit quirky at times. I remain as confused as ever as to what settings I need to use DTS - there seem to be no options to switch vanilla DTS on. Disappointingly there are no analogue 5.1 inputs, which has rendered my SACD player useless, yet it does include phono inputs to pander to the current vinyl fad. Hmmm... Build is generally good, but the front panel decal sticker refuses to lie flat on mine. The remote is a bit of a button-fest - the important surround options are well hidden. Airplay is very welcome... so why do Yamaha feel we need yet another propritary media connection service? In conclusion, this is a very good amp, with lots of options, plenty of connections, but with a hefty price to match. If you can afford it you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected, solid and high quality AV receiver High quality AV receiver with good connectivity/functionality - wouldn't be ashamed to pair this with top end monitors. Yamaha software hasn't come that far in the past few years, so the UI (while adequate) is a bit antiquated. Richer Sounds London Bridge great - impartial, passionate and commercial. No hard sell and open to facilitating whatever was required to aid in decision making.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product, Worked right of the box I bought this amp after upgrading all my AV kit at home. My old Yamaha RX-A1010 Amp could not passthrough a 4K HDMI signal via ARC. (I have an NVidia Shield TV and Amazon 4K TV which all connect to the amp) I also needed HDCP 2.2 compliance which this new RX-A1060 has. The only downside of this amp is that via ARC, I cannot receive a BT2020 colourspace when viewing the NVidia Shield. (max I received was BT709.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good sound and all the bells and you would need had this receiver for a few weeks now went in to richer sounds to buy a denon and ended up with this after talking to the sales man and checking this out loved the sound, had other machines over the years but the 1st Yamaha big and bold sound must admit really not sure about listing in a beer cellar or why you would want to.at the moment just 5.1 set up looking to go with more speakers if I can sneak it past the wife, like the apps all working fine so far using my phone to control this far better than the supplied remote had to get my head round the set up bit got there in the end all in all impressed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy I was looking for a replacement for my old Pioneer SCLX83 as I now have a 4K tv and a brilliant Oppo blu-ray player. The staff at the Cheltenham store gave me some options for my budget and decided to take their advice and bought this. It's well built and so easy to set up, I went back and bought a couple of Onkyo Atmos speakers because initially I was bothered adding these would be a pain to set up, but quite the opposite. I like the IOS app, again nice and easy. Great sound, good sound stage extras and my wireless headphones now work without a dongle. Very happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha Rxa1060 Just upgraded from a Denton avr 2200 to the yam what a transformation the speakers im using monitor audio 5.1 music sounds amazing purchased from Cardiff store nice bunch of guys very knowledgeable and helpful 5⭐️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall, very happy! Absolutely loving this amp. I've got it paired with a 5 channel B&W DM603/601/LCR60 S3 setup and it's an excellent combination. Easily powerful enough to drive the speakers and the combination works well. For the price I'd have expected pre-in channels, but that's about the only complaint I have - which is very minor anyway! Very simple to set up and looks the business.
