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 Why I chose the A4A and what I think of it. I have been using a Yamaha receiver for the past 10 years and have always been really happy with it. I wanted 4K and Atmos so time for an upgrade. Naturally I was looking at the Yamaha again, specifically the RXV6A. Stock was erratic so I decided to look at the next level up the RX-A2A however there is little different in my opinion so I looked at the RX-A4A. There is a substantial price increase so I wanted to be sure that the extra was worth it and boy was it! This thing is not just next level its new world! It is far louder than I could ever want. The sound quality is superb beating everything I have ever heard before! The interface is much improved and the web client makes setup a dream. It has all the inputs I need and the additional HDMI allows me to out put to another room at the same time. It looks fantastic sat on the rack too. Surround AI is great for watching TV as it dynamically changes the sound processing. I turn it off for Blu Ray, LP and CD and leave those as direct. This gives me the best of both worlds. If I had the choice I would certainly buy this again. I am not sure I would gain anything from the A6A or A8A to warrant their extra cost. not at least in the home

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great AVR for money Purchased this AVR for cinema room and delighted with its performance. It is also very good for integration with third party control system over IP protocol. Full real time feedback and diagnostics so recommended 100%. It also works out of the box, does not require speaker setting up before a sound can be generated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worthy Upgrade to my ageing amp. My old amp was adequate but lacked all the new “bells and whistles” like DAB and net radio, Dolby Atmos etc. having gone down the route of buying an 8k TV it seemed to be a “no brainier” that it should be paired with an upgraded amp. Set up was quite a lengthy process not the least reason being the nearly 10 years of dust under the old amp when I took it out!! I also too the opportunity to relabel all the inputs and speaker leads together with fitting “banana plugs”. The sound is a revelation breathing new life into my “Aciustic Readearch” “Radius” speakers. Music is clear and there is good separation so you can sense where the instruments are. Vocals are crisp and well defined and of course you choose from the pre-programmed listening locations/environments. Where it really comes alive is with movies. Omg the sound seems to come from everywhere!! Great especially for sci-fi/adventure where the director has added a great sound stage. Being a “flagship” model it should be good and it is!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full 4k 120hz AV So I decided to upgrade my home cinema living room and I went from a 115" 1080 HD projector to an 85" 4K TV. From there I kinda hit the credit card a bit too much, bought a 4k Amazon Fire box and an Xbox Series X. At this point I'd gone past the point of no return so I then needed a 4K AV to handle all my 4K inputs. The problem I had was finding an AV with multiple 4K inputs. Spoke to Richer Sounds and they said Yamaha were one of the only ones doing this right now. With a fresh firmware update all 7 Hdmi inputs are now 4K 120hz, well impressed. Sound quality is amazing. I had an RXV-475 before this which didn't impress me but this one is night n day different. I now enjoy listening to music again as well as rich 4k content on my TV with HDR10+. Buy one, thank me later.
