”Yamaha’s RX-A6A is a great premium AVR with exhaustive features and expansive sound.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

9.2 channels for enveloping sound

With no fewer than 9.2 channels of sound, the Yamaha RX-A6A opens up a new realm of possibilities. With a 5.2.4 configuration, you can use four ceiling speakers for the ultimate in Atmos and DTS:X sound. 7.2.2 gives a wider spread of sound around the room yet still retains twin ceiling speakers. For the largest rooms and non-Atmos systems, 9.2 channels gives totally immersive sound.

Upgrade to 11-channel sound for cinematic immersion
Add an extra stereo power amp for next level surround sound. Configure four ceiling or Atmos-enabled speakers as well as full, 7-channel surround sound. Alternatively, use two Atmos speakers and enjoy a broad soundstage with 'front wide speakers' forming a 9.2.2 system. If you don't fancy a Dolby Atmos specific system but want the most immersive sound possible, go for an 11.2 configuration. This offers 7.2 sound with the addition of front width and front height speakers.

High power output
Backing up the multi-channel output is a high power amplifier. Punching out a mighty 150 watts per channel, the RX-A6A fills the largest rooms with effortless, dynamic sound. If you want to be kept on the edge of your seat with cinema thrills, this is the AV receiver for you.

Adaptive sound courtesy of Surround:AI
Surround:AI gives the ultimate surround sound – scene by scene. Powerful processing from the DSP (Digital Sound Processor) analyses scenes in real time and then adjusts the surround effect in real time. By focusing on distinct sounds, such as dialogue, background music and sound effects, the RX-A6A automatically optimises the sound for incredible realism.

Aventage quality
This Aventage AV receiver boasts exceptional construction quality. Anti-Resonance Technology (ART) makes this AVR exceptionally resistant to mechanical and electrical interference. ART encompasses a more rigid, H-shaped Cross Frame chassis, anti-vibration construction and even a fifth damping foot, helping give the RX-A6A its superb detail and resolution.

High quality digital components
It’s not just the mechanical side of the RX-A6A that has received Yamaha’s attention, the digital components are also of exceptional quality. The Qualcomm QCS407 system chips offers industry-leading compatibility, digital signal processing and seamless integration. Partnering this are SABRE ES9026 PRO and ES9007S premium DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors). These offer exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratios, giving you ultra-low levels of distortion and crystal-clear sound – even at low volume levels.

Wide-ranging surround sound – including Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D*
With wide-ranging surround sound support, the RX-A6A is all about immersive sound – however many speakers you use. Compatible formats include Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology, DTS:X, DTS Neural:X and Auro-3D. This wide range of options means you can adapt your surround sound speaker system from the simplest system with ‘virtual height’ speakers to full-blown 11.2 systems that truly bring the cinema home.

Professional connections – XLR balanced
Featuring an XLR balanced interface, the RX-A6A is capable of pro-level connectivity. XLR connections feature additional shielding, making them more resistant to electrical interference. A further benefit is being able to run longer cables with minimal loss of quality. For the best audio connection, go XLR.

Connect more – including a turntable
As well as seven HDMI inputs, this Yamaha AVR also has a wide range of other AV connectivity. Component and composite inputs cover classic video sources. Optical and coaxial digital inputs are ideal for connecting older devices or upgrading the sound from a compatible CD/Network player. Five analogue inputs are perfect for Hi-Fi components, with the dedicated MM phono input perfect for plugging in a turntable.

Three HDMI outputs
Paired with the HDMI inputs, the RX-A6A boasts no fewer than three HDMI outputs. This lets you connect a TV and projector in your main room and a second TV in another room.

Dedicated HDMI Zone B
The RX-A6A benefits from a dedicated Zone B output. 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.

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+*
The RX-A6A 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.

Surround sound, untied
For an easy way to reduce cabling, the RX-A6A 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.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RX-A6A 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 RX-A6A 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-A6A 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.

Fresh new style
The latest Aventage series has a fresh new style. With its gloss black finish and sleek control panel, the RX-A6A has a less cluttered look than before, with a timeless minimalism.

Upgrade you home cinema with the powerful, better connected Yamaha RX-A6A.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent receiver. Subwoofer is a must. I did upgrade form an old top of the range pioneer receiver. The difference is imence. The callebration tool does excellent job. Voice is clear, other sounds do not interfere with it. HDMI ARC works with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha still unbeatable. This is to replace my Rx-a1020, and wasn’t disappointed. The sound quality out of the box blew my mind, and I haven’t even fully configured the system to my room. If the initial setup is anything to go by I am going to enjoy this amp for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy piece of equipment I initially had purchased a Marantz SR7015 for my home cinema but due to the HDCP 2.1 bug, I ended up upgrading to Yamaha because I did not want to connect another box to the HDMI ports to allow for higher transfer speeds. Yamaha was very easy and quick to set up and use. For example I easily connected to my phone using Bluetooth, and was pleasantly surprised that I could use my existing Android app (rather than Yamaha’s) to play music from my phone. What’s more, if I switch off my video projector whilst playing music from my phone, the music continues to play uninterrupted (with Marantz, the receiver would also get switched off). I also like the large number of sound programs that simulate movie theatres or concert halls. Even the remote control is a quality piece. In summary, I think the Yamaha is a classy piece of equipment and well worth the money I’ve paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an AV Amp! My old reference Yamaha AV amplifier failed after 25 years so I called Richer sounds Watford branch for a demo between the award winning Denon 3700 and the Yamaha A4A, they booked me in that afternoon. I’m not sure what these media people are listening too but there was a clear and obvious winner to me and the salesperson Sam. The Yamaha, it provides a much better soundstage, richer tones, plenty of bass with clear mid and high’s. The Denon sounded soulless, non immersive and meek by comparison. Don’t get me wrong, it had good mid and high’s but average everywhere else. Also the Denon’s look and feel was much dated and cheaper by comparison. Richer sounds had no live stock of the Yamaha A4A but had the bigger A6A version available. Sam ordered the A6A to be delivered next day to my address and said I could test the amp within my own home setup and no pressure to buy. He obviously knew the larger A6A version would surpass what I had already heard and would be keeping the unit. I also got £100 of interconnects within the deal due to a promo richer sounds we’re running at the time, I opted for the Chord shielded after taking advise from the store. All in all a great experience, good value for money, sound advise and great customer service as always The booked me in the same day and against all media reviews the Yamaha was

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tom and Mark sorted out my new Yamaha rxa6a Tom and Mark Southampton branch sorted out a problem that had developed in the first few days on my Yamaha rxa6a. So very helpful. I would never hesitate to buy any hifi or TV from them. They do go above and beyond to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic This Yamaha RXA6A has replaced another Yamaha but the RXA2A. Both are good but I know the new 1 is alot more expensive but the RXA6A is brilliant. Thanks Stuart at Richer Sounds Sheffield for yet another superb service and info.
