"The RX-A3060 takes your home cinema experience to a whole new level." 'What Hi-Fi? award winner 2016'. 5-star review.

ESS Sabre32 DAC and symmetrical power amp for the highest quality sound

At the heart of Yamaha's top AV receiver you'll find super-high quality ESS SABRE32 Ultra DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) which provide sensational sound quality. Providing power with control, a symmetrical power amplifier layout is employed meaning that left and right channels are physically and electrically separated: this maximises channel separation and provides an enveloping soundstage.

The Aventage advantage
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 an H-shape cross member frame and rigid bottom frame / double bottom construction, anti-vibration heatsinks and even a fifth damping foot, helping give the RX-A3060 its superb detail and resolution. With a mighty 150 watts of power (at 8 ohms), the RXA3060 is effortlessly powerful.

High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering room-shaking power, the Yamaha RXA3060 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural-sounding than standard audio. The RX-A3060 supports DSD 2.8MHz/5.6MHz, FLAC/WAV/AIFF 192kHz/24bit and Apple Lossless 96kHz / 24-bit for wide-ranging file playback.

The DTS:X difference
DTS:X is the flagship processor from this highly respected tech company and 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 HDR UHD and 4K upscaling
With the Yamaha RXA3060 you don't just get HDMI sockets that pass through UHD 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 eight HDMI inputs. The sockets (excluding the front HDMI) are compatible with HDR, HDCP2.2 and UHD 4K, meaning they'll work with the current generation of UHD4K Blu-ray players and TVs.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXA3060 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.

Apple AirPlay and bi-directional Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device. A Bluetooth output makes it easy to connect Bluetooth headphones or even a Bluetooth speaker for outdoor listening.

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 and Control 4 compatibility
The Yamaha RX-A3060 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. The RX-A3060 is also compatible with the popular home automation system, Control 4.

Treat your home cinema system to the best; the Yamaha RX-A3060.

YAMAHA RXA3060 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent amp Very happy with my new AV amp. The advice I was given over the phone obviously came from a knowledgeable guy. The amp arrived when I was told it would. I marked the sound quality as good rather than excellent because it's not as natural sounding as my previous Pioneer amp, more dynamic and punchy yes, but with a harder edge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe the difference from my old receiver. I purchased the RX-A3060 as an upgrade after reading several of the reviews and on the recommendation of the manager Matt and assistant manager John at the Cardiff branch. I set the system up as an 11.2 and boy does it make a huge difference to the cinema experience. The sound field is so immersive I almost felt like an extra on the film set!! It handles all my music equally well. I read one review that stated that the RX-A3060 was probably the best av receiver on the planet, I think they were right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this amp! Wanting to give this amp a second listen after trying out others in this price range, I called the City of London branch and spoke to a salesman called Ilhan. He arranged for me to have a demo that afternoon and after a long listen to all the features and sound settings I decided that this was in my opinion the best overall. After having this at home for a while and getting used to the functions I am liking it more and more. Thanks to Ilhan for being friendly, knowledgeable and for making me feel that I was under no pressure in making this major purchase. You are a credit to Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha RXA3060 Having had 2 previous Pioneer avrs I was a bit dubious going to another brand and was considering one of the new batch that they had to offer but no one had one to demo nor a top Denon model. Local Richer Sounds did however have this RXA3060 set up in their demo room and kindly added a set of Monitor Audio Silver 6`s to it ( I have silver 8`s) for reference. Wow, I wasn't expecting the sound to be any different to what I was used to, how wrong I was. Movies and music had a whole new depth and was instantly amazed at the ease of use on this model. SOLD SOLD SOLD. I would recommend them( and have done) to anyone. From start to finish to receiving my new purchase was trouble free. Now I have it setup in my own home I am not disappointed with my purchase, connected to my MA silver setup it sounds amazing, still getting used to the features and functions but that's the joy and the journey has just begun..... Thank you Richer Sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very musical but solid with cinema. This was a big decision for me, I've had a Yamaha DSP A1 which still performs beautifully, absolutely no issues with it apart from lack of connectivity in the digital age was starting to become a problem (more for the kids than me). I am happy to say I am generally pleased with it. Sonically it is beautifully musical, I am loving listening to CDs again. With movies it is fantastic, built for the digital age, set was simple using a Yamaha app. It is not quite as well connected speaker wise as the A1 was, 5.2.4 is no probleem but you can't run twin centre speakers as I was previously and I don't think I can get an extra pair of wide front speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Amplifier brings new life to venerable speakers This is a fabulous amplifier, it has brought a new lease of life to my venerable Mission 753 speakers, allowing me to bi-amp them and add a full surround sound system. Each audio input can be tuned precisely so UHD movies sound big, bold and fully immersive and at the other end of the spectrum my Linn turntable can be set to 'Pure Direct' with much of the electronic circuitry switched off to provide a clean unaltered sound. I have previously owned a Cyrus III stereo amplifier and have been cautious about replacing it with an AV amplifer. The RX-A3060 compares very well, in fact as a result of the bi-amping the overall result is significantly better than the Cyrus III, I have been completely won over.
