2020 Yamaha AVRs with HDMI 2.1 -Rumor Mill


Recommended Posts

From the Webpage :

 

No HDMI 2.1 receivers were officially announced at CES 2020 but Yamaha's 2020 line-up of Aventage receivers will seemingly be one of the first to arrive with HDMI 2.1. The Yamaha RX-A8 (11 channels), RX-A6 (9 channels), RX-A4 (7 channels) and RX-A2 (7 channels) were detailed in a now-removed video and summarized in German Hi Fi forum."

 

For those who understand German , here is a link to the German Hi Fi forum post.

marantz for instance haven't released hdmi2.1 just promised an upgrade on flagship models..

 

am not aware of anything real;y hdmi 2.1

 

keeping in mind hdmi 2.1 is a feature set. so they might just enable capability or compatibility of one feature... though can say it is hdmi 2.1 doesnt mean it meets entire spec....or fully capable :)

 

anyways good yamaha is not going down beaten track with look of their avrs... look like a new breed :)

 

its far too early with hdmi 2.1 also has very little impact on most i woudl suggest bar some small few playing games with variable or high frame rate. or wanting new version of hdmi control that never ever properly worked in prior editions... yes cynical... oems always looking for an excuse to get folk to turn gear over... that said its quite possible Yamaha are also going al lout with new range and improving on prior sonically and such... so may not be all about hdmi 2.1

They will all have 2.1 soon though tempered by some 2.1 features already available like E-ARC with d#m holdings models which echoes whats been said.

 

The top line avr has added 2 extra power amps to feed 7.1.4 without an addon it seems ;  no mention of auro3d and the channel count has stalled from some generations ago .Class D amps would help with that.  Whats the odds it still has useless analogue video inputs still ? They have looked at the Emo pre pros and said yeah a big volume pot in the middle looks good B|

I've been a fan of Yamaha since I began my HT journey. My first AVR was the Yamaha 795a. Fairly low in their model range but hey I just started working full time!

 

I have not had a Yamaha since this model, I would go back to the brand if they improved their sub EQ. I think they build some nice AVR's ,pre-pro with great build quality and reliability. Not sure I'm a fan of their new look though.

 

I remember going into a store a couple of years ago ( I think it was Audio Trends) and the salesman said if you want an exciting sound then go with Yamaha, if it's room correction you're looking for then go with Anthem.

Why do you say that ?

I don't think any other manufacturer has released HDMI 2.1 AVR's yet.

I cant really understand why noone has jumped on this yet, with a large amount of people holding off until its released, its a good chance to snag a large chunk of new customers and sales.

sorry looking at yamaha avrs in general not just the flagship.. the 2nd in line still only has 9 preouts the 3rd in line gets 7.. thats poor when the mid denon 3600 gets 11 channels of processing.

 

maybe 2.1 is important but so is the need for expanding the system in your room.

 

i remember the rxa3040 being released with atmos only and people being sucked into buying it only to have denon/onkyo release dtsx/atmos in their avrs.. couldnt get half your money back less than 12 months of owning a 3040 as yammy announced the 3050 would have atmos/dtsx during that time.. they seem to always lag.

 

this time maybe different but if they dont match say the 3600 in their so call top 3 whats the point?

Official specs for RX-V4A and 6A listed on US Yamaha site.

 

If I'm reading this correctly, it looks  all HDMI ports support  HDR10+, 8K/60Hz, 4K/120Hz, ALLM, VRR, QMS  & QFT (via a future firmware update).

 

https://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v6a/index.html

8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz HDMI (with future firmware update) with HDCP 2.3 and eARC (7 in/1 out)
Supports enhanced media and gaming – ALLM, VRR, QFT, QMS (with future firmware update)

That being the case, they have the drop on both Denon & Marantz at this point in time. But note that these features are only available via a future firmware update.

Edit:

 

Looks like not all HDMI Ports support HDR10+, 8K/60Hz, 4K/120Hz, ALLM, VRR, QMS & QFT (via a future firmware update). Only 3 on the RX-V6A but all 4 inputs on the RX-V4A according to Press Release:

Yamaha's new 8K AV receivers make HDMI 2.1 home cinema affordable

 

https://www.whathifi.com/au/news/yamahas-new-8k-av-receivers-make-hdmi-21-home-cinema-affordable

 

Quote

The rather handsome, "redesigned" RX-V line-up consists of the 5.1-channel RX-V4A and the 7.2-channel RX-V6A. Both support 8K and HDR10+, as well as VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), which should deliver smoother console gameplay.

 

Looks like some like the new look!

 

Quote

Before you get too excited, though, Yamaha has confirmed that none of these features, even the 8K support, will be included at launch. Instead, they'll be coming via a firmware update that's "tentatively" scheduled for December.

 

That isn't too long to wait considering it has way more HDMI 2.1 Ports that the other offerings.

 

Quote

Perhaps best of all, Yamaha is being decidedly aggressive on price: the 100W-per-channel Yamaha RX-V6A costs £649 (AU$1299), while the 80W RX-V4A comes in at just £449 (about AU$899). Both are due to hit shelves in October, just in time for the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

 

That's not too bad really!

But I guess people will have to wait until December for all the features.

As reported in the thread on AVSforum, all four new Aventage models up on Amazon (with pricing). They will be available for purchase on 21st October in the US.

 

RX-A2A (7.2 receiver) $799.95 USD

 

https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-AVENTAGE-7-1-Channel-Receiver-MusicCast/dp/B08DWKCHH6/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1Z33WOIOH1QEH&dchild=1&keywords=yamaha+receiver&qid=1598528298&sprefix=yamaha+r,aps,201&sr=8-1

 

RX-A4A (7.2 receiver) $1,299.95 USD

 

https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-AVENTAGE-7-1-Channel-Receiver-MusicCast/dp/B08DXF1CP6/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1Z33WOIOH1QEH&dchild=1&keywords=yamaha+receiver&qid=1598528241&sprefix=yamaha+r,aps,201&sr=8-3

 

RX-A6A (9.2 receiver) $2,199.95 USD

 

https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-AVENTAGE-9-2-Channel-Receiver-MusicCast/dp/B08DXMTQ1N/ref=sr_1_4?crid=1Z33WOIOH1QEH&dchild=1&keywords=yamaha+receiver&qid=1598528241&sprefix=yamaha+r,aps,201&sr=8-4

 

RX-A8A (11.2 receiver) $2,999.95 USD

 

https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-AVENTAGE-11-2-Channel-Receiver-MusicCast/dp/B08DXT8198/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1Z33WOIOH1QEH&dchild=1&keywords=yamaha+receiver&qid=1598528241&sprefix=yamaha+r,aps,201&sr=8-2

 

As posted earlier here is a compilation of the rear inputs and outputs of the RX-A8, RX-A6 and RX-A3080 to compare changes between models:

 

https://www.avsforum.com/attachments/yamaha-rx-a8-j-rx-a6-and-rx-a3080-rear-pdf.3032039/

 

The RX-A8 pricing will be around $6K


The RX-A6 pricing will be around $3.5K

 

That makes the pricing make more sense if you checkout the back of the RX-A8, RX-A6 and RX-A3080.

 

They have raised the bar on their top RX-A8A receiver to include 11 amplified channels, whereas the RX-A3080 is 9 amplified channels.

 

RX-A8 (11 amplified channels) = completely new model


RX-A6 (9 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-A3080


RX-A4 (7 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-A1080


RX-A2 (7 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-A880


RX-V6 (7 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-V685


RX-V4 (5 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-V485

 

So the RX-A6 is more in line with the Denon AVR-X4700H 9 channels ($3,490), and the RX-A8 more in line with the Denon AVR-X6700H 11 channels ($6,190).

 

 

Edit: Amazon Links not working. You can still see them in this google web cache until it expires:

 

https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:cLUxtA7_LoAJ:https://www.amazon.com/Receivers-Amplifiers-Coming-Soon-Home-Theater/s%3Frh%3Dn%253A281053%252Cp_n_date%253A1249034011+&cd=15&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au

 

I thought they might get removed because they weren't even on the US Yamaha site.

 

https://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/index.html

 

The pictures displayed on Amazon were actually of each respective model as I checked that. So Yamaha must have provided those images to Amazon. I quess someone at Amazon jumped the gun.

I wonder if there will be a rebirthed Z 

 

or is that hallowed and reserved for something else flagship like ... going above beyond ...

 

no pre amp ? Shame I reckon yam could make a beauty ? And these new release are making their CX series looking date by comparison

Who would know what they have planned. The RX-A8 11 channels at approx. $6000 AUD is comparable to the Denon AVR-X6700H 11 channels ($6,190). But Yamaha don't anything comparable to Denon's Flagship AVR-X8500H.

I'm sure that they will release a new Pre-Pro and possibly another new power Amp with more channels. The real question is when.

 

 

Anyway I think it is important to acknowledge that the new 2020 Yamaha AVRs provide multiple HDMI 2.1 input ports, and it does look like a complete redesign from the ground up. That could be a double edge sword I guess. Hopefully the new electronis design has be well engineered. I'm very interested to know if the Yamaha HDMI 2.1 Ports support only 40Gbps like on the new Denon & Marantz AVRs. Or have they done one better and provided the full 48Gbps that will support 12-bit Colour (that is supported by Dolby Vision). But there arn't any consumer TV's that support 12-Bit Colour so it is a moot point at this time.

 

To me, Denon and Marantz seem to have both chosen a adhoc upgrade and only provided a single HDMI 2.1 input port. Their story that they didn't want to included more because it would have force up the price of the AVRs doesn't seem to add up when you consider that the new Yamaha AVRs are priced almost exactly the same as the previuos models without HDMI 2.1. Anyway you could argue that you only need one HDMI 2.1 Port at the present time (given the number of devices available), which I guess is fair enough.

 

So those interested, here is a picture of the RX-A8A from the AVSForums thread of the new Yamaha models.

I must admit, the new look is growing on me. The RX-A8A, RX-A6A, RX-A4A & RX-A2A doesn't seem to have the front rounded edge that both the RX-V6A & RX-V4A have.

Its a matter of gearing up for the new chipsets bizzi ; denon wanted to be 1st which is ok for those with 1 ps5 or x box i imagine :) Looking at the back panel of a 3080 with its 2ch xlr in and out I see much the same connectivity so they have just put a new fascia on likely and tweaked the dsp processing.. Easy enough to slip a new hdmi sub board in B|

 

Yes the new fascia has a nice symmetrical look about it certainly ; too bad they couldnt size up the front panel readout [ probably looked at the dinky marantz porthole :/ ] and didnt like a giant flap..

 

40gbps is fine for the 4k 60fps games with dolby vision coming dont worry ; David meyer lists bandwidth requirements =24.06gbps

will be a time if the case... but will also tell us ... this will keep folk on the upgrade mill as when the full bandwidth units come ... people will upgrade again !

yep doesnt add up on denon and marantz s part. especially on their flagship units. silly move if ask me ! again another reason to keep folks on the upgrade treadmill !

Damn! The RX-V6A is exactly what I'm after but I need 2, HDMI outputs!  :(

Hopefully they announce a model 1 step up that's not way more expensive.

Surely it's not going to jump from $1,300-$,3000!

You will have to buy the RX-A4A to get dual HDMI Outputs. See:

 

a4a-jpg.3034166

 

 

Even the new RX-A2A doesn't have dual HDMI outputs.

 

 

 

a2a-jpg.3034165

 

 

 

If it was me, I'd just buy the RX-V6A and connect a 8K HDMI Switcher to the single HDMI output.

 

f53b186269cfe92d5539bfd7a4a71775.jpg

 

 

As reported, the new RX-V6A will come with YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement. This will be the first time this has been offered in the lower end range. The RX-V685 does include YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) as does the RX-A680, but without no Multipoint measurement.

 

The current RX-V385, RX-V485 & RX-V585 only have the very basic version of YPAO sound optimization without Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.). It looks like the new RX-V4A will only have the very basic version of YPAO.

 

Previously, YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement only started with the RX-A880. The RX-A1080 then included YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement and 64-bit Precision EQ Calculation.

 

The RX-A2080 adds YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement 3D, 64-bit Precision EQ Calculation and Angle Measurement.

 

Finally the RX-A3080 has YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement 3D, 64-bit High Precision EQ Calculation and Angle Measurement.

 

It would be good if Yamaha have tweaked and improved YPAO in all its forms.

 

It will be intesting to see what form of YPAO the new RX-A2A, RX-A4A, RX-A6A & RX-8A come with.

Are they too embarrassed to put the power consumption on the back?

I think most of those images of the Aventage Series are generic, leaked and not specific to any one particular county’s power source. The exception is the RX-A2A.

The RX-A2080 adds YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement 3D, 64-bit Precision EQ Calculation and Angle Measurement.

 

Finally the RX-A3080 has YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement 3D, 64-bit High Precision EQ Calculation and Angle Measurement.

 

It would be good if Yamaha have tweaked and improved YPAO in all its forms.

 

It will be intesting to see what form of YPAO the new RX-A2A, RX-A4A, RX-A6A & RX-8A come with.

Here is a site that has better pictures of the new Yamaha AVENTAGE models from different angles, remotes etc:

You can clearly see that the new AVENTAGE models have flat fronts like existing AVENTAGE models, where as the new V Series both have rounded fronts.

That's so weird that their budget receiver has Duel HDMI out and the more powerful models don't!

 

I don't want to use a HDMI switcher... And if I bought the A4A it might actually be a downgrade from my Sony Stnr 1080.

 

Meanwhile the 2020 Denon and Marantz only have 1 true 8k input... So annoying lol

I believe you have mis-read / interpreted the posts...

The new budget AVR's from Yamaha don't have dual HDMI outputs whatsoever.

 

I would assume that it's far easier to add an HDMI splitter to the output for the average consumer... than it is for them to add an HDMI switch to the inputs and then figure out how to control it from there.

Sooooo... they've put their entry level $'s into inputs, not outputs.

      I should have listened to Derek @Demondes and done a WTB before I imported my Yamaha GT2000 last month.
      Would have saved thousands.....  😷
       
      So lesson learned: here's what I'd love from a local seller if possible.
       
      Item:  Yamaha B-2 amplifier & matching C-2x( or '2a') pre-amplifier
      Price Range:  name your price
      Item Condition: Used
      Extra Info:   prefer both serviced or in very good clean condition

      Item Condition: Excellent for age, no issues apart from wear with age Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Hawthorn State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: too many turntables and need sell one Further information: Selling the Famous Yamaha GT-2000 (Gigantic and Tremendous) Direct Drive turntable in Black including
      3rd party external power supply (Yamaha YOP-1 non original), tortech 240v to 100v converter (these turntables were only released in Japan so only ever 100V) Yamaha YAL-1 (autolifter) - additional feature not usually on this model.  Sensitivity can be adjusted to lift at the right spot Original Yamaha YA-39 Tonearm The perspex cover has some light marks on it (I also don't think this is an original lid but fits well), hinged at the back.  There is a light scuff where the lid comes down at the front at speed indicator (see 11th photo). Orsonic head shell (currently fitted) plus the original Yamaha head shell (not in photo)  
      The Rubber mat and heavy platter are in great condition.  The original lifting tool for the platter is not included.  Instead 2 large wing nut bolts of the same thread can be used to safely lift and lower the platter as required.  The platter is super heavy and you need these to safely lift and lower the platter.  The autolift function works very well (note it doesn't stop the turntable just lifts the arm).  There are no issues with the  quartz speed lock on 33 and 45 RPM.
       
      The rubber isolation feet are in very good condition but show some signs of aging.
       
      There is one small mark where the black colour has come the plinth (see photo 1st and last photo to the right of the quartz lock mechanism.  This could be painted or colored with black pen.
       
      Also included in the list price is the fitted Lyra Delos cartridge (which I will consider removing if someone just wants the turntable).  This cartridge was installed and setup by Sonic purity ($2600 RRP new).  The cartridge has only around 120 hours on it. 
       
      This was bought off a fellow stereonetter 2 years ago.
       
      I really love this turntable as it brings out a solid bottom end in records played, but I need to consolidate down from 4 turntables and free up money for other purchases.  I tend to play my rock records on this turntable and Jazz on the Thales TT.  The Yamaha does a great job and comes close to my much more expensive Thales TT with Simplicity Tonearm and ZYX cartridge.  I considered putting up both the Yamaha and Thales for sale and seeing which one sells first (and keeping the one that doesn't sell, cause I could be happy with either), but I thought given the price brackets this Yamaha is more likely to sell. 
       
      So my plan is to consolidate to the Thales and get the Micro seiki BL-51 up and running by putting a good MM cartridge on it.
       
      Any feel free to ask for additional photos (e.g. photo of platter, there are a couple of marks on that under the rubber turntable mat).
       
      I don't have a box and it isnt easy to send via courier due to weight.  So local sale for now.  Possibly later in the year (If Sydney/Melb ever come out of lockdown) I could possibly drop off along the Hume Highway e.g. Canberra, Sydney etc
