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 Excellent product at a good price I bought this aling with other items and i am very impressed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound. Good sound big improvement on my older Onkyo 609.The setup menu could do with improvements a bit clunky to navigate through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great got some good features as well Had this for about three months now real good bit of kit lots of features and lots of power.
Date published: 2018-05-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound AV receiver This receiver is an upgrade to my Yamaha RX-V481 which is still a good amp. However this upgrade is far more powerful for my use. The sound is richer than the previous one with nice bass, mellow midrange and a crisp top end response. Just keeping it simple, if you want a good AV receiver amp go to Richer Sound and speak to any of the staff - I have been a customer since 1981 and I have no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wireless functionality Bought as it allows me to use my B&W wireless headphones and sounds great when played through speakers too
Date published: 2018-03-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound solid build This is a great sounding product, wanted a good pre out section as connected to a high end 2 channel system for the main speakers. Not shown any weaknesses in the sound even through this revealing system. Had a previous Yamaha receiver which lasted 15years and still going strong so reliability should be excellent. The quick start guide could be better as its not obvious how to get into the setup menu, this is via the 'on screen' button! Haven't used any of the network features as already have these on other products so didn't feel the need. May added atmos speakers in the future. I think it is worth the extra over the Denon models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded amp Significantly better sound quality than my previous amp (Denon avr-x2200w). The Denon would struggle with deep base notes but this remains composed throughout. Excellent with music too.
Date published: 2018-02-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value but complex to set up This receiver has a lot of features for the money. I have had both good and bad experiences of setting up preset "Scenes" where pressing one button puts the Yamaha and the attached disk player and TV into the right configuration for watching DVDs or TV. However, setting up a CD listening preset is proving difficult due to HDMI control preventing the TV from being switched off without turning off the Yamaha too. It may be a simple setting somewhere but finding it is proving frustrating. Still the receiver sounds good through my Quad surround speakers so I am sure this will turn out to be a good purchase once I tame it!
