Taking premium Aventage quality to the next level, the Yamaha RX-A4A gives your entire AV system a shot in the arm.

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-A4A 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-cross chassis, anti-vibration construction and even a fifth damping foot, helping give the RX-A4A its superb detail and resolution. With a power upgrade to 110 watts (at 8 ohms), the RXA4A is powerful enough for larger rooms and all speaker types.

High Slew Rate Amplifier for dynamic sound
High Slew Rate amplifiers are difficult to implement, but when engineered with Yamaha’s usual thoroughness, achieve superb results. Especially suitable for Hi-res audio sources, the RX-A4A’s amp provides a crisp, dynamic sound.

High quality digital components
It’s not just the mechanical side of the RX-A4A 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 is the SABRE ES9007S premium DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertors). This offers exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratios, giving you ultra-low levels of distortion and crystal-clear sound – even at low volume levels.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for three-dimensional sound
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X use ceiling or up-firing speakers for three-dimensional and fully immersive sound. Whether it’s rain falling in a tropical jungle or the intense sound of overhead gunfire, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X put you in the centre of the action. DTS Neural:X offers an even more immersive sound, with a heightened sense of realism.

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization for extra height, without the speakers*
As impressive as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound, it’s not always possible to accommodate the extra speakers. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization technology goes some way to help. Play any Dolby format and enjoy a more immersive sound with virtual height enhancement – using your existing speakers to deliver an enhanced sound. *via firmware update.

Connect more – including a turntable
As well as seven HDMI inputs, this Yamaha AVR also has a wide range of other AV connectivity. Optical coaxial digital inputs are ideal for connecting older devices or upgrading the sound from a compatible CD/Network player. Three analogue inputs are perfect for Hi-Fi components, with the dedicated MM phono input perfect for plugging in a turntable. The Zone 2 output gives you the option of adding a second pair of speakers in another room.

Three HDMI outputs
Paired with the HDMI inputs, the RX-A4A 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.

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-A4A 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-A4A 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-A4A 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-A4A 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-A4A 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-A4A has a less cluttered look than before, with a timeless minimalism.

Take a step up in quality, with the Yamaha RX-A4A.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features and excellent sound After many years of good service my existing AV receiver needed replacement mostly due to restricted connectivity. I did some research and with the assistance of the good people at Richer Sounds Hoole branch settled upon the Yamaha receiver. The A4A is a little taller than many and quite deep if you are putting it in a cabinet( with plenty of ventilation of course) and runs quite cool compared to some. There is plenty of connectivity including multiple HDMI outputs and multiple inputs that now ( firmware version 1.66) accept 4K/8K 120Hz required by higher end gamers. VRR support is still awaiting a firmware fix but updates are arriving frequently. I found that straight from the box the sound( to my ears) was bright and a little flat but after playing music quietly for a day the sound became open, detailed, had clear vocals and good bass. YPAOW worked well and allowed multiple readings from a single and multiple viewing positions if required. The small display is not an issue for myself as I have it switched off unless a command is sent as I definitely don’t want a light in my line of sight when viewing a film etc. The only time I looked at it was during setup, where it contains plenty of information. Note that the text changes to double height for volume etc. but I personally prefer the on screen display. There are several APPS available including the feature filled MusicCast and by typing the IP address and /setup into your browser more adjustments are revealed in a very useful format. I am very pleased with the Yamaha and (in my room) found the phantom height channel settings really made a difference( in my 5.1 system). I am very pleased with the sound quality with both movies and music. The clarity of vocals is outstanding. Thank you Richer Sounds for making my latest purchase effortless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound and Powerful Got the RX-A4A to replace a Sony AVR that was really good but was going into protection mode too often. This was choice number two after I got a Denon 9.2 AVR but was disappointed in its sound and functionality… so glad I sent that back for the Yamaha RX-A4A, the sound and functionality is so much better . They really bring out the range in my klipsch speaker set to a new level. Whether music or movies, the sound is excellent. You have a lot more control over tweaking your sound than the Denon. I highly recommend the Yamaha AVR. Richer Sounds did a great job of getting it to me when DPD messed up the delivery. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience dealing with Richer Sounds. Hunter at RicherSounds@Cambridge: Cant praise him enough. I never visited the showroom, as it was a bit far from my place and I was a total newbie. He patiently explained to me all the details of the home theatre system along with an 85 inch TV I was putting together, Went to every detail, and was super helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The staff have excellent patience and knowledge I dealt mainly with Olivia , who had so much time to assist me with a tricky amp/Phillips hue combo dilemma. I always felt she cared rather then just had to for her job. I liked having to call the branch for the friendly service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent (it will be) the AVR is great a step up from my previous model. the 2 reasons why i bought the Yamaha rx A4A are : Xbox series X and PS5. Every HDMI port on this unit pending a firm ware update will support support 4k at 120hz with Dolby Vision and Atmos plus several other features including VRR. most of the other receivers only had 1 or 2 HDMI 2.1 ports and a few have a bug so they wont support the features above. At the time of writing this, the firmware update hasn't been released but from what i could find out online - its due end of February 2022.
