Yamaha’s Aventage line of A/V receivers that launched back in 2010 is about to get two new players that will bring audiophile quality design and performance to the game. The RX-A3040 and the RX-A2040 support Dolby Atmos surround sound for home media spaces.
The new receivers will enhance systems so that sound comes from all directions, including the ceiling. They also offer video upconversion to 4K 60p, supports the latest HDMI format and will have 4:4:4 chroma subsampling capability.
The wireless network capabilities allow for access to Pandora, Spotify Connect, Rhapsody, SiriusXM Internet Radio, vTuner, and offers Airplay and HTC Connect support.
Both receivers are 9.2-channel and are expandable to 11.2 channels with an external amplifier, which allows the audience to take advantage of Atmos full surround sound.
The RX-A2040 and RX-A3040 will be available in August for $1,699.95 and $2,199.95, respectively.
