With more quality-enhancing features and the same superb construction quality, the Yamaha RX-A820 is more impressive than ever.

AVENTAGE QUALITY CONSTRUCTION FOR SUPERIOR SOUND

What marks the Aventage range out as something special is the attention to detail. It's this attention that makes the RXA820 sound just that bit more detailed than others. Anti Resonance Technology (ART), such as a fifth damper foot and full metal casing reduces both mechanical and electrical interference. ART also extends to damped transformer, transistors and heat sinks, helping give the RX-A820 superior sound quality. In addition to ART, the RX-A820 benefits from a discrete amplifier. By using discrete (separate) components rather than an IC chip, superior quality components can be used for a more detailed sound quality. On the digital side of things a low jitter PLL circuit helps optimise sonic precision. Finally, the detachable cable allows you to use higher quality mains leads for that final tweak in sound performance.

NOW WITH 4K VIDEO UP SCALING

Going one stage further than conventional 1080p upscaling, this processor has the power to upscale to twice that level! Known as 4K because of the horizontal pixel count of 1080p TV increasing from 1920 to around 4000 (there are several formats all offering slight variations). Currently 4k TVs and monitors are specialist items but, watch this space; prices are coming down all the time. At the moment there are already 4K videos available over the internet but with the RX-A820 the upscaling ensures, whatever the format, you're all set for the future of 4K. In the meantime you can also upscale signals to 1080p for the best image quality with Full HD TVs and projectors. The HDMI sockets also allow 4K pass through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

SUPERIOR VIDEO PROCESSING WITH EDGE ADAPTIVE DEINTERLACING

Edge Adaptive Deinterlacing reduces jagged diagonal lines by pixel interpolation. The result is smoother motion and truer realism. As you'd expect, the RX-A820 also supports 3D TV and Audio Return Channel information.

ADVANCED NETWORKING INCLUDING APPLE'S AIRPLAY

Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly! Furthermore, you can 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.

With a DLNA certified LAN connection, it's easy to hook up to your home network hub. From here you can access your stored music from PC, laptop or NAS drive and also 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.

COMPREHENSIVE CONNECTIVITY

With no fewer than eight HDMI inputs and twin outputs, you're never going to be caught short with the RX-A820. One of the HDMI sockets is front-mounted, making it easier to attach occasionally connected sources such as a camcorder or smart phone. The RX-A820 also features an active/passive Zone 2 output - perfect for music via active or passive speakers in another room. Added to this are a wide range of other sockets including a 7.2 multi-channel output - ideal for adding more powerful or higher quality amplification at a later date. Twin component inputs for older DVD players and four digital audio inputs are also included. There's a front-mounted USB socket, too. It might not look much, but this little socket will transform the sound quality from your iPod, iPhone or iPad. By connecting to the USB, you'll benefit from a digital connection. This gives a direct signal and, hence, purer sound quality than using a conventional dock or analogue input. The socket now also charges your Apple device. If you don't have an iPod or iPhone, the USB socket will also accept music signals from other MP3 players or multi-media devices.

For a comprehensively equipped AV receiver that also majors on hi-fi sound quality, the RX-A820 is up there with the best.
