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.
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.
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.
