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 ASTOUNDING Best AV Receiver I have ever owned.I didn't believe my modest old speaker system could sound this good. I have never heard my sub-woofer come to life like this. Watching a pirate film of a ship caught in a hurricane storm in 7.1 sound it felt as if I was there on the ship.Just wanted someone to splash water on me. Also watched a 7.1 musical and it was just like being in the front seat of a theater. I also find myself listening to music ,that in the past I would have ignored. Only had it a few days long may it continue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good as it gets at this price Brought this as a replacement for my pioneer sclx57. This does lack the power and speaker set up but more than makes up for it in punch sound placement and quality of sound. Went to rs in Kingston only to find their demo room was out but the sales assistant Daniel was pleasant and assured me that this amp was all it was hyped up to be. Telling me if I didn't like it I could bring it back. Not much chance of that turn the volume up and my b&w s3 series all 7 of them and 2 rel subs came alive with a quality I've not heard from them before. You can send another £300 + for the a2070 but dont bother. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and features This receiver in next level.Tons of great features. My Dali Zensor 7 sound a lot better with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Reciever! Initially hard choosing an AVR but the Yamaha A series came highly recommended. The guys at Glasgow RS set up the system as i wanted and I tested with a Dali speaker setup. This was easily the best sounding AVR for me. Great sound, good looking and tons of additional features. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha Rx-a1070 Excellent av amp brings my system fully up to date with 4K and Dolby Atmos. Lots of features but too many to mention.A real upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel wrapped in sound Having had the smaller brother the RXA660 the RX1070 was a clear choice Yamaha produce amazing sound scapes with logical controls easy for my wife to quickly grasp (not being sexist but factual) This coupled with Cambridge Audio minx 22 and 301 sub running at 7.1 this produces a pure dynamic 3D sound stage. Images are shown on the LG UHD65” with Yamaha’s upscaling this all produces the best in price class home cinema 100% recommendation. The team at Richer Sounds will help you as they have done for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING 3D CINEMA SOUND IN YOUR HOME I searched high and low for the ultimate AV receiver to compliment my 4K HDR UHDTV. I just bought an XBOX ONE X and was really feeling the pain being stuck with a 1080p Sony STR-DA3400ES AV receiver. It was time to upgrade after all these years. Initially I had my eyes on an Onkyo, but after much research on Amazon and Sevenoaks, I realised that they have a high failure rate. Even Pioneer have lost their crown and now Yamaha is top dog. A Richer Sounds specialist said he preferred Yamaha and so did Sevenoaks. Notably their favour lies in the pure warm sound the amps generate. I was still sceptical and finally booked a demo in Chiswick Richer Sounds. With all the media coverage on the new RX range, this receiver surely is a beast of a powerhouse. AUDIO: At home I wired it up with QED silver anniversary cables and hook up my 7.1 KEF speakers and to my astonishment, I heard sounds that I didn’t know my speakers were capable of producing. It was totally astonishing. My old speakers felt like new ones. Also worth noting is that Yamaha’s 3D sound is far from being a gimmick - it really works and sounds excellent. TESTING DIFFERENT MEDIA: I tried BluRays, Netflix, gaming and even my Nintendo Switch.. everything looked and sounded amazing. This AV receiver has some serious audio and video processing. Forza 7 on XBOX One X looks and sounds amazing in 4K HDR. DOLBY ATMOS: Don’t worry about 7.2.4 Dolby Atmos in a home.. 5.2.2 is good enough for most houses or flats. If you live in a huge mansion then get the RX-A3070 instead. My 7.1 KEF are perfectly matched with this setup. My next mission is to get a couple of KEF Atmos speakers for £699. USER INTERFACE: The UI on this AV receiver is surprisingly really easy to use and has memorable icons. I’m not used to things being such a breeze. It’s very refreshing. The only stupid thing is that the main menu button is labelled “on screen” - that makes no sense.. why not just call it “menu” like everyone else? I do wish there was an extra small remote like my Sony, but I can adapt. When I plugged in my PS4 Pro, XBOX One X, Wii U and Switch, all the names automatically came up on the display - so no renaming was necessary. I also love the internet connectivity to Spotify etc.. and Apple AirPlay is so easy and intuitive. CONNECTIVITY: There’s so many connections on the back and everything is clearly labelled. I had no trouble at all with modern and legacy devices. There’s 7 HDMI inputs on the rear and on other front. There’s also 2 HDMI outs and preamp options for a second zone. You do need a good quality HDMI 2 cable though when running 4K HDR content otherwise your display will spin out of control. To counter this, I bought an AudioQuest Pearl cable for £25 and then a few days later, I opted for an AudioQuest Carbon HDMI instead. Both the picture and colours changed, being razor sharp and vibrant. The audio got a significant boost too. Not all HDMI cables are equal - don’t listen to the media lies.. I tested them thoroughly myself and saw a huge difference - from generic, to QED, to Van Den Hul Flat and finally to AudioQuest. SUMMARY: This AV receiver stands among the best and has an abundance of awesome features. It’s the ultimate powerhouse and the go to choice. Forget the other brands, just go Yamaha!! For the price, you’re getting a lot of bang for your bucks.. also it’s a real looker too and really stands out as a sexy behemoth in your living room. Make sure you get the correct cables and speakers.. don’t cheap out when you’re spending money like this on home cinema, otherwise you’ll never hear or see the potential this AV receiver has to offer. If you want a premium superior sound, then look no further. Buy it and trust Richer Sounds for a superb quality service. I never shopped with them before, however after this, I’ll certainly be coming back long-term.
