Incorporating a second independent HDMI zone output, powerful processing and top quality ART construction, the Yamaha RXA1070 is a premium AV receiver.


Cinema DSP HD3 with Rear Virtual Presence Speaker

Using powerful DSP processing power, the Yamaha RXA1070 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 chassis with additional bottom frames, anti-vibration heatsinks and even a fifth damping foot, helping give the RX-A1070 its superb detail and resolution. With a punchy 110 watts of power (at 8 ohms), the RXA1070 is powerful enough for larger rooms and all speaker types.

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 RXA1070 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural-sounding than standard audio. The RX-A1070 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 RXA1070 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 RXA1070 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-A1070 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
Like the lower models in the range, the Yamaha RXA1070 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 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.

Fully-featured and powerful-sounding, the Yamaha RXA1070 brings home cinema to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp at good price Bought it few weeks ago to replace my smaller yamaha 679 and difference is massive. It like a louder cleaner version of the old one. With my new bostons a360 they create a nice duo, clean detailed sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Amp and super service from store I wanted a new AVR to replace an old Pioneer that I've had for about 20 years, had set my heart on a Denon but little did I know the one I wanted was being discontinued so wasn't in stock. Sales adviser spent time with me looking at alternatives, in the end I chose this Yamaha. Setup was simple, sounds great though not had chance to fully appreciate its power yet and it looks good too. 2 very minor niggles I have with it though, the buttons on the remote are a little crammed together and the wire aerial for the radio is a little poor considering the unit is billed as a premium AVR, other than that I'm more than happy with it. Must also thank sales adviser Andy for his help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sound purchase Bought to replace an Avantage 1040 which, although only 3 years old, would not support hdmi2.2 to allow sky q to operate in uhd. Sitting in its place where the 1040 was, it looks exactly the same, sounds the same and has almost the same features. However, the 1070 seems to tolerate switching between modes better than the 1040 which was always a bit of hit or miss when it came to changing from audio only back to cinema action. Am I happy at having to change to the 1070 spec and losing the thick end of £600 after 3 years just to watch uhd - no, not really but that’s what happens with technology these days - it’s obsolete before you know it. Having said all that, Yamaha is the only AV receiver I would buy - the build quality is fantastic and the features and surround sound are brilliant. I just hope it keeps current long enough to enjoy it thoroughly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont let the controller put you off. Made my existing kef speakers sound so much better! Use the smart phone app for the controller to get full functionality. No need to use the supplied controller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great and has just what I wanted. I replaced my Yamaha RX-V1070 with a new Yamaha RX-A1070 coincidentally exactly 7 years on to the day! My main check points were 4K with Dolby Vision support as I am using an Apple TV 4K with Netflix 4K into an LG 55" OLED 4K TV. The results are stunning especially as many of my Apple downloaded movies support UHD and Dolby vision. I also am able to stream UHD via VUDU (I have my network set up to support US apps). DAB and Internet radio is great. I have a roof mounted DAB Aerial as the tuner is replacing an equally ancient PURE Dab tuner. Blu Ray Disks (3D and UHD) are also excellent via a Sony UBP-X800 player. The sound quality is very good and although I do not yet have Dolby Atmos, the surround is very good. I am also able to play my SACD disks as well. In all, I could not be happier with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greate sounding amplifier with great features .I bought the RX-A1070 as an upgrade for my RX-A830, wanting to upgrade to a 4K amp with additional network connectivity, I have not been disappointed. But the main reason I chose this amp, was because of the sound when playing either, vinyl though the phono section, or streaming through the Airplay or Bluetooth, the sound is amazing. Watching 4K movies also brings the room alive, with a surprising clarity, it’s almost like you were there. love the MusicCast feature, been able to play music over the WIFI, from just about any device with the app, just need some more speakers, around the home, and try out different Zones. Got to say it’s the best AV amplifier I have ever had, would definitely recommend!
