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.
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+*
Using a 7/1 (in/out) HDMI interface, the RX-V6A supports your full system. It also 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.
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.
For precise, dynamic sound, the Yamaha RX-V6A uses a powerful, 100 watts, high slew rate amplifier. Ideal for HiRes music and home cinema, the amp powers your music or soundtracks with gusto – keeping you on the edge of your seat during action movies or gaming, and totally bewitched by your favourite music. This design of amplifier can be tricky to optimise, but Yamaha’s unique design achieves dynamic scale while also maintaining a stable signal transmission.
Surround sound, untied
For an easy way to reduce cabling, the RX-V6A 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.
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.
MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RX-V6A 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 RXV6A 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-V6A 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.
Sleek new style
If you’re used to AV receivers being all bulk and buttons, the RX-V6A will come as a pleasant surprise. Rounded edges give a softer, less imposing style. Yamaha has also kept the button count to a minimum, giving this AVR a much cleaner and fresher aesthetic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Msttbatt68 from Yamaha rx-v6a and 2 meter hdmi cable After a 10yr old sony reciever started playing up ,time to look for another one ,the guy on telesales went through the Onko, Denon and Yamaha all around same price ,between us and after giving the features I need ,decided on the yamaha ,unfortunately no stock was avaliable at warehouse or my area ,so the guy said Leister had one in stock and to give them a call if not get back to them . Leeroy from Leister branch was fab and let me have next day delivery for £10 as the brance is 100 miles from me, and done a deal on a 2 meter Hdmi lead.Leeroy was very helpful and said don't hesitate to call back with any issues or help setting up ,said I know it will be fine as he runs yamaha and the amp is a really good one ,that's what they are there for. The amp is Fab and easy to set up and sound is fantastic ,thanks richer sounds A1 service as per normal ,and second to none customer service as usual. Also got free 6yr warranty with the amp so worry free for years . Matt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Aziraphale from Great sound, but not with out issues Purchased over the weekend, delivered Monday a day earlier than expected so plus points for RC. If you have had a Yamaha amp in the past you will be happy that all the DSP are present as is the sound quality. Fairly easy to setup, but for easy of setup connect the unit to your home network first and use the browser interface (192.168.0.XX/setup). Had no issues with banana plugs, just undo the locks nuts a bit the they go in. Feels a solid built unit and does look nice, bit of fingerprint magnet though. Now the bad bits. The display is a horrible LCD display with a poor light, you have a light grey block with white text and even if you turn down the back down its still a grey block. RC and Yamaha show a nice blue display on the websites, its not what you get (most likely the units being shipped are a revised version). The user it face is painfully slow at least 2 seconds before anything appears on screen, once it appears it quite useable. Turn up the volume, the LCD shows straight away, while the OSD will show 1-2 seconds later. As with most Yamaha's the remote is not the best, very light weight. The selector dial which feels like it would fall off with very little effort. A lot of bang for the buck, if you have owned a Yamaha before you'll pleased with sound and all familiar features and functions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marty Smarty from Yamaha RXV6A. Purchased this model to replace my 6 year old Yamaha av receiver. Looks great and sounds great with lots of features.Only complaint is the length of the FM/DAB aerial which would not work very well and looked cheap stuck onto the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by martinrt from Meets all my requirements First the support offered by the staff at Southampton and the buying experience, all conducted over the phone, was first rate. Delivery by DPD was done with no problem and the delivery on a Sunday was a pleasant surprise. Now to the Yamaha itself. Setup was relatively easy although I could not get the app to work for me and had to resort to the manual and this is my first minor gripe. The manual is online only and although I appreciate that this cuts down on cost and paper usage it does make it difficult to flick from page to page especially during the setup process when you are learning the device and could do with simultaneously seeing the diagrams and reading the text on different pages. I have read various reviews on here about the lack of banana plug sockets but once the post inserts were removed my plugs fitted perfectly. Once setup the Yamaha performed as expected and the sound for TV, CD and DVD is excellent as are the sound effects provided. I am still working through these to find which formats I will settle on. I agree with the comments made by others about the unit display being on the small side and it would be helpful if it could display the sound format being output as well instead of having to call it up on the onscreen display. I have to say in conclusion the gripes are negligible and for the price/performance this, to my mind, is the best device on the current market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dandylad30 from A gem from Yamaha I purchased this as a replacement for an Onkyo amp I recently bought but It developed a fault and I had to return, It so I paid a bit more and went for the Yamaha. "What a difference" don't be shy of this Receiver You wont look back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by David Ruler from Stunning sound, so many features and easy to use I bought this on recommendation from Richer Sounds in Maidstone and as always the advice is perfect. Works so well with my other stuff and the app makes everything from turning it on to changing settings so easy. Love it!
