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.

Become fully enveloped in the sound, with the Yamaha RX-V6A.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha rxv6a Bought Yamaha rxv6a to replace Denon avr-x3500 what an excellent purchase far superior in sound to th Denon and more user friendly when it comes to earc and controlling my equipment Love the web interface for setting on the yamaha much more controllable. The receiver is connected to a Sony KD-65xh9296 . Thanks to Tom @bath store for your help in getting one. Bought over the phone from Bath Store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome but I cant seem to get sound from my TV with it connected to my xbox one. Good sound quality and easy to set up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings my sound up to date with a Bang! This receiver is a replacement for my ageing Yamaha DSP surround amp which is no longer compatible with my new 4k TV. Connection to my existing devices and speakers was straight forward and I was quickly experiencing the excellent sound in 5.1. I already have a musiccast system around the house and the RXV6A integrated perfectly. My only negative is a small one; this would really benefit from. A printed manual. Finding my way through the menus while trying to navigate an online manual was somewhat challenging at times. But I guess it's helping save trees. If you like a good, solid, well built amp with excellent options and a wide range of inputs, I can recommend this to you. Oh, one more thing.... the sound is superb too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple set up - good clarity of sound Got this amp last week - simple setup and a good quality sound has so far delivered a very satisfying experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha all day every day and twice on Tuesdays! It is a lot lighter than the Yamaha 2070 that it replaces. It’s also not as loud but I never used that power anyway. It’s also less than half the price that that was twenty plus years ago. The upgrade to the sound field processing and having 5 discrete channels (I was only used to prologic) makes such a difference. It self calibrates and sounds amazing. It’s a very big soundstage in the best of ways. I have heard talk of problems with switching and the arc inputs playing up but there must have been a firmware update as it’s faultless. I am looking forward to putting a ps5 through it for some epic gameplay if I can find one. If you have a soundbar and your looking for an upgrade get it! If you have an old amp and need hdmi switching get it! If there is an a in the day get it! No regrets here. It will not shake the windows but I have never gotten near the top volume setting and it never seems strained at all. Unless your going to spend double and have the speakers to handle that power get it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade Firstly great service from the guys in the Exeter Branch, made a phone purchase really easy, and arranged next day delivery. The amp is a replacement for an old AV amp, was easy to install and setup. The autodetect features found my KEF Egg surround speakers and sub straight away. And they amp recognized the other AV components (TV, BD player, PVR & NAS) on Anynet+. Switched to appropriate HDMI input on TV and conected to router - everything burst into life as it should. As soon as the YPAO mic was plugged in the system did a multipoint auto measurement of the room. Left the amp just playing TV at normal volumes for 8 hours to start the burn-in before listening in earnest. Overall the sound quality is a massive improvement over my previous Yamaha amplifier whether it be from terrestrial TV, (standard or massively improved on the HD channels) or from Blu-Ray. Sound is superb, the amp has masses of headroom, and is very articulate and subtle when called for. DSP is excellent as is DAB and Internet radios. Not yet seen or tried the firmware upgrade for 8K Music-cast and Airplay 2 work well, and again easy to set up. I'm sure I could find fault if I really wanted to, but these would be immaterial to the purpose of the unit - decoding and providing great sound. I'd not hesitate in recommending amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything connects nicely only had this since New Years eve so not learnt everything about it yet. I connected it all up without any trouble or instructions, it was pretty self explanatory. the speaker connections are a bit close together, I only have 2 front speakers so there was room but I could imagine if you had a load of speakers, with 10mm speaker cable it would be a bit of a pain to get all the wires in. I haven't got banana plugs but if they fit the connections then that would be the way to go with a lot of speakers. once it was all connected up, I managed to connect to Spotify without any problems and it streamed to the unit without too much trouble. I don't think I have set it all up properly yet and sometimes its a bit long winded to just put the tv on, but I have found that if I just turn on the sky box the unit turns on and the sound comes out the speakers which is what I want, rather than try to put the tv on using the MusicCast app. anyway New Years eve was banging!
