The perfect blend of power, spacious sound and features, the Yamaha RX-A860 leads its class.

The Aventage advantage

The Aventage tag makes the RX-A860 something special. Anti-Resonance Technology (ART) makes this AVR exceptionally resistant to mechanical and electrical interference. ART encompasses a full metal casing, anti-vibration heatsinks and even a fifth damping foot, helping give the RX-A860 its superb detail and resolution. With a punchy 100 watts of power (at 8 ohms), the RXA860 matches power with finesse.

Ready for DTS:X
DTS:X is the flagship processor from this highly respected tech company. It literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also offers other advantages such as the ability to boost the spatial effect of conventional DTS and easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Engineered for Dolby Atmos sound
Optimised for Dolby Atmos, you can now experience the wonder of Dolby Atmos in your own home. Producing a multi-dimensional and totally immersive sound, Dolby Atmos has been hailed as the greatest advance in surround sound for 20 years - so don't miss out!

Ready for a 4K future
With the Yamaha RXA860 you don't just get HDMI sockets that pass through 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 three HDMI inputs (and both HDMI outputs) with HDCP2.2 spec. This means you'll be able to connect up UHD (Ultra High Definition) sources without any compatibility issues.

Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Yamaha's digital processing are top quality Burr Brown DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor). These not only provide punchy and lifelike sound but also facilitate the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The RXA860 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXA860 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.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. You can also 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. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

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.

Ready for anything - including your turntable
The Yamaha RXA860 is equipped with twin HDMI outputs. Ideal if you run both a projector and TV or simply have a second screen in another room, the twin outputs greatly enhance the receiver's flexibility. On the input side, eight HDMI inputs are amongst the highlights. The RXA860 also comes with a phono stage and pre-amp outputs. The phono stage lets you connect up a turntable while the pre-amp output allows the use of a larger/higher quality power amp at a later date.

Power, control and all the features you could ask for - the Yamaha Aventage RX-A860 is a winner through and through.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Sound via HDMI. Bluetooth Sync Issues I bought this last week, display model, and spent an entire weekend trying to get some sound out of it. After some telephone support from the very helpful guys at Richersounds and Yamaha, I eventually got sound via bluetooth, but audio and video were 3 seconds out of sync. I've finally given up and sending back today. Very disappointed. I'm told I can't get a replacement as this was the only one left. I've only rated 1 star since it only worked via bluetooth, and even then it was out of sync, which renders the product useless really.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superb Purchased this product having read many reviews on similar products & discussing with the excellent in - store staff at the Stockport branch. I replaced a 10 year old Arcam solo 5.1 & was blown away with the difference in sound quality using my existing B & W speakers. Also love the Bluetooth & spotify features that are really easy to set up. I have never installed anything like this before as I am pretty useless in that department however Gavin encouraged me to give it a go. I hit a few minor issues but received superb over the telephone assistance from both Nathan & Patrick. Cannot fault this company. Great product & service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One happy (old school) customer Multiple connections, excellent sound, killer app, useful features, easy setup and use. Rated as mid price - it may be for some - for me it was a considerable purchase but worth every penny. Shop offers a really good deal on extended warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than the others I tried a Yam 381 and thought it sounded cheap, so tried the Denon 2300. Again, this didn't sound right with the monitor audio speakers i had. So blew the budget and went for this. Much better sound quality than the Denon, but i suppose its a few models up from the 2300. Only had a it a week, so can't say much else about the reliability. The software doesnt seem as good as the Denon, but it sounds amazing, which is the main thing! But I don't undertsand how hard it can be for Yam to up there software game to compete with Denon? Anyway, quality Amp that looks mean too!
