Top quality Aventage sound meets class-leading networking, with the Yamaha RXA870.


The Aventage advantage

The Aventage tag makes the RX-A870 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-A870 its superb detail and resolution. With a punchy 100 watts of power (at 8 ohms), the RXA870 matches power with finesse.

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 RXA870 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural-sounding than standard audio. The RX-A870 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 RXA870 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 RXA870 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-A870 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.

Flexible connectivity - including for your turntable
The Yamaha RXA870 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 RXA870 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.

The perfect blend of quality, power and features, the Yamaha RX-A870 is a class all-rounder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of stomp! It was time to replace my ageing but very competent Arcam AV350 as I wanted to tidy up my system which had become very cumbersome due to the various 4k sources that are now appearing. I wanted an amplifier that could handle a PS4 pro, Sky Q and a 4k UHD player. I was very nervous about replacing the Arcam and ending up with beautiful pictures and woeful sound. I expressed these concerns to Fred at the Bath branch who listened to my concerns and discussed the main uses of my system before recommending the Yamaha. He did discuss some other options but was very confident that I would be happy with this purchase. And I am. This is a solid and well made piece of kit and easily rivals the Arcam for build quality. I don't really care what my amplifiers look like as long as they deliver but this does actually look quite nice sat on the rack! The initial set up was fairly straightforward using the Yamaha YPAO system which, surprisingly, was pretty accurate straight out of the box. I had added two Cambridge Audio Min 22 speakers in preparation for Dolby Atmos as more material becomes available and these were set up fairly accurately. Room shapes and sizes vary and some fiddling is always necessary but this is a simple procedure done from a smart phone using the Yamaha app. If you are currently using a 5.1 system I would definitely advise going for two extra "height" speakers at the front if you are able to. They do make a difference when watching action movies. Movies of a wide variety are dealt with beautifully but this thing does excel with the blockbuster type action movies. Just watched Hacksaw Ridge and I was most impressed. Absolutely no lack of stomp with this one. My other concern was how the Yamaha would handle music - no problem here. No matter what source you feed it it does the job with aplomb. There are numerous settings to fiddle with (again on the smartphone app) until you get your own version of perfection whatever that may be.... Fred was right - if you're looking to upgrade your amplifier at this price point then get one of these. You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound & features Very pleased with the Yamaha AV Receiver, I purchased my first Yamaha about 11 yrs ago, so It was an easy decision to get another Yamaha. I'm Very happy with the receiver & the service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and set up Richersounds staff explained that my monitor audio speakers needed and amp of this quality, though quite a bit more expensive than my last demon amp, was definitely worth it. I have a cheaper Yamaha that I use in my conservatory and I find the features easy to use and the sound options excellent,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RXA870 i purchased this AV Receiver to replace my old Yamaha. i did shop about to see what was on today's market and found the RXA870. i have been with out Receiver for about a year. set up was straight froward, i did have to make some manual changes to get the receiver working how i wanted it to. on initial set up the bass seem a little low and was not turning my sub on auto ? all working and sounds great, easy to forget what a difference it makes to watching a film or listening to music. looking forward to adding Atoms speakers at a later date. A little pricey but i like the sound the Yamaha produces, worth the money, would recommend A++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha Atmos AV Receiver RX-A870 We’ve only had this just over a week now. It is amazing. It’s got so many different settings. I haven’t had time to try them all yet. It was so easy to set up. Just plug all the HDMI in And did the speaker calibration and away we went. Totally amazing sound. Well chuffed with it. We have had the Onkyo 606 for the past 10 or 12 years, which is still going strong. We wanted a more up to date model with all the extras. This one blows our old Onkyo out of the water. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great Advantage A fantastic sounding amp with music and movies with plenty of inputs including dedicated hdmi 2.2 and a phono stage. Nice on screen menu, easy set up with good speaker calibration. Only negative is it doesn't come with a full manual, you have to download it or use the included cd in a computer, however if like me your computer doesn't have a cd drive, it's useless. Great service from Gareth at the Hanley store as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic AV Receiver Picked up this Yamaha RX-A870 and it has turned out to be a wonderful if not a better complement to my OLED TV. With eight HDMIs and an app to control the various sound settings ( including Dolby Atmos) I have fallen in love with the sound output
