Premium components and sophisticated processing come together to make the Yamaha RXA2070 a powerful force with both music and movies.

Cinema DSP HD3 with Rear Virtual Presence Speaker

Using powerful DSP processing power, the Yamaha RXA2070 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.

The Aventage advantage
This Aventage AV receiver 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-A2070 its superb detail and resolution. With an impressive 140 watts of power (at 8 ohms), the RXA2070 is effortlessly powerful.

A new dimension in sound 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.

High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering room-shaking power, the Yamaha RXA2070 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural-sounding than standard audio. The RX-A2070 supports DSD 2.8MHz/5.6MHz, FLAC/WAV/AIFF 192kHz/24bit and Apple Lossless 96kHz / 24-bit for wide-ranging file playback.

Eight HDMI with high compatibility and 4K upscaling
With the Yamaha RXA2070 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 are compatible with HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG, HDCP2.2 and BT.2020 for comprehensive compatibility with HD formats and sources.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXA2070 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.

Stream the best music services
Compatible with Spotify, Pandora, Napster, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz, the RX-A2070 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.

DAB and FM
With both DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) and FM tuners onboard, 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.

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-A2070 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.

Making movies sound more magical than ever, the Yamaha RXA2070 provides you with a front row seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha Atmos AV Receiver Having last bought an AV receiver some 20 years ago I decided to upgrade, first of all to benefit from improved AV technologies but also to simplify my video path. The old AV amplifier lacked HDMI capabilities and I had a plethora of add-on boxes which switched inputs to two outputs and separated audio from hdmi. A complete unsightly mess replaced with one box and in the process that box allows multiple connection types, including LAN, WiFi, Bluetooth and MusicCast. Yamaha is also one of the only mid-priced boxes to include DAB and FM, on UK models. That was another separate dispatched to the great HiFi graveyard. The sound path has many options for purists and techo-jocks alike and the video path upscaling to 4k on one of the two hdmi outputs. There are many features have not tried yet but I am thoroughly pleased with my choice and have already expanded my setup with a separate MusicCast speaker to allow streaming around the house. My only complaint is the remote control- it is dire. There are lots of tiny keys and tiny writing which I can no longer see, which makes it unusable for me. At this price Yamaha need to include a better, programmable remote. Having said that the tablet app is a good substitute for the key functions so the supplied remote can live in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid unit, oozing features. Wonderful sound I have bought this unit in replacement for an old and slightly misbehaving Bose Lifestyle system. I re-used the tweeters from that unit, replacing the subwoofer. Setup was easy including the YMPAO to adapt to my living room. Similarly, fitting a new turntable was worth it: my old LP collection (vinyl, for the new generation) is now back in use. The room is filled with wonderful sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Sounding Amp Running this in a 5.1.4 cinema setup. Sounds absolutely amazing. Easy to setup. Works seamlessly with Spotify too which sounds equally impressive as Blu Ray movies

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I bought this on recommendation from Geoff at Sheffield, what a fantastic piece of equipment. Really glad I went for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound and functionality This is my fifth hifi amplifier in 45 years. In chronological order a Leak, Quad, Yamaha and Arcam precede it. No longer able to hear 18khz I was looking for something able to replicate music clearly while respecting the timbre of the instruments. This amp does that, without adding harshness as some do. It is musical. In Pure Stereo mode the circuitry for surround channels and the display are switched off. In my judgement, with limited hearing range, it is excellent. The surround modes are how I mostly prefer to listen these days, and the Yamaha YPAO setup was both quick and accurate. As an AV amp for tv/netflix it is good, though centre speaker quality and placement continue to be important. I've not tried the Atmos setup, being unimpressed by several shop demonstrations. I suspect ceiling speakers are a must for Atmos. The Musiccast app is good, though you probably need a streaming service e.g. Tidal/Deezer to get the most from it and minor software glitches need patience and careful reading of instructions to circumvent them. But I'm very pleased with this purchase and recommend the 2070 to those who want much better than boom boom sound, but do not feel the compulsion of the hifi purist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb piece of kit Although I owned separates for more than 20 years, I won't call myself a true audiophile, my Technics units clearly put me outside that category, regardless they were top of their range. Finally the time has come to jump to the next level and what a jump. After a 2 hours demo at Richer Sound show room, I was sold for this unit. It is like you are listening to different music altogether, although you know that song. There are details that I didn't hear till now, no matter what is the source of the music. Speaking about the sources, there are so many, I don't think that you will want to add something and you will find yourself in the position of running out of inputs (7 AV, 3 audio, dedicated phono MM stage, USB) plus FM/DAB radio and streaming of endless internet services. For those with FLACs, WAVs and other formats on external hard drives, it has an DAC incorporated, which will make your files sound fabulous. As for the movies, if the set up of your speakers is done properly, you won't leave your coach. I am running now a 7.1.4 set up (KEF Q700, Q300, Q600C and 4 Dolby Atmos enable R50) and it is, simply put, stunning with a movie. On top of all these you have a lot of sound modes to choose from, depending on the type of music you are listening, or the movie you are watching, modes which can be choose at any given time or can be saved in the so called "scenes", which can be access afterwards with a press of a button. Long story short, if you want a real treat in your living room, regardless if this is a concert hall or a small cinema, go for this superb Yamaha RX-A2070 receiver; it won't disappoint you.
