AI technology will create a captivating sense of realism with expressive power better than conventional sound field effects to provide you with the best possible entertainment experience possible. *Qualcomm® QCS407 with 64-bit high precision processing delivers precise surround sound.
Cinema DSP HD3 for Movie, Music and Game
Yamaha’s state of the art 3D sound field playback technology was developed by merging sound field data with the bleeding edge digital signal processing technology. The Cinema DSP HD3 has been reconstructed using new signal processing algorithms which maximise sound affects to give that REAL sound factor. Paired with front, centre and surround speakers to create a real virtual speaker, the CINEMA DSP HD3 playback up to 11.1 channels is possible even with a 7.1 channel speaker configuration.
Dolby Atmos with Height Virtualizer
If you don’t have in-ceiling or upward firing speakers in your system, Dolby Atmos with Height Virtualization technology will duplicate the Atmos experience with forward facing drivers. Experience every dimension in Dolby Atmos. You can enjoy a 5.1 surround speaker system and two additional overhead speakers (or two Dolby Atmos elevation speakers) as this will provide dramatic overhead effects for exceptional audio. *Including Dolby Surround upmixer for legacy content.
DTS:X captivating audio formatting positions sound where it would naturally occur in space, developing realistic, multi-dimensional audio. The included spatial reworking engine of DTS Neural:XTM supplies improved immersion and is the real sound factor in all your favourite movies.
Compressed Music Enhancer
Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer applies advanced digital signal processing by using exclusive algorithms to ensure that music is always clear. When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format such as an MP3, the frequency response suffers which is why Yamaha have developed this technology to provide you with the best sound quality possible.
HIGH QUALITY PARTS
Advantage of High Slew Rate Amplifier
Yamaha’s newly designed circuit in the RXA4A achieves a high slew rate with stable signal transmission for the quickest and best quality sound. Typically, high slew rate amplifier cause unstable signal transmission which is why Yamaha have focused on and resolved this issue for the RXA4A.
High-Quality Digital Components
Qualcomm® QCS407 is designed to provide a superior audio performance. Whilst supporting Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive home audio, the QCS407 will also support dedicated high-performance audio DSP. Including the SABRE ES9007S Premier Audio DAC from ESS Technology, the RXA4A uses this to achieve an incredible signal-to-noise ratio and up to 120 dB of dynamic range. Therefore, this AV receiver produces professional quality digital audio for you to enjoy and experience.
Anti Resonance Technology Wedge
The newly developed Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T) Wedge is positioned centrally in the front of the chassis unit base. This technology reduces much more vibrations from the power transformer, power transistors and heat sinks, as well as any vibrations that may occur due to the sound from the speakers. This is to enable dynamic sound and concentrated, accurate reproduction.
Newly Designed Mechanical Structure
The exceedingly logical and consistent internal layout of parts and the reconstructed circuit boards are designed to keep the signal paths on each board as short as possible. The modern H-cross frame improves rigidity of the receiver body and sound stability for a more clear and sharp reproduction. The specially redesigned mechanical structure also contributes to avoiding vibration from the transformer to the amplifier circuit. Sound noises are reduced to improve distinctness.
MOVIES AND GAMES LIKE NEVER BEFORE
The HDR10+* signals the dynamic range which is the ratio of light to dark of video content on a scene-by-scene or frame-by-frame basis. This function also supplies in a small amount of metadata, the scene characteristics between bright and dark in order for the important details to be maintained. The purpose of this function is to enable displays to reproduce more realistic images to follow the creator’s intentions. *This function is available via FW update.
With a single advanced cable for seamless integration for the HDMI eco-system, 8K/4K resolutions are supported end-to-end and enables a higher refresh rate solution. 8K delivers a very captivating viewing experience with 2x the horizontal and vertical resolution of 4K, and 4x the pixels with a combined 60Hz refresh rate. This allows sharp and smooth viewing of content and high-speed action. The 4K/120Hz enables ultra-fast motion UHD images to be crisp and cutting edge. This means that sports, high-performance gaming, action movies and VR will benefit and become top quality. *This function is available via FW update.
Gaming-dedicated Function (ALLM,VRR,QMS,QFT)
With enhanced gaming and media features, there will be a guaranteed added level of smooth and flawless motion and transitions for movies, gaming and video. These features include Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) which allows the ideal latency setting to be applied automatically, and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) which stops lag, stutter and frame tearing for more flowing and detailed gameplay. Another feature is Quick Media Switching (QMS) which will stop the delay in movies and videos that can result in blank frames before content is displayed. The Quick Frame Transport (QFT) feature will minimize latency for smooth no-lag gaming and real-time interactive virtual reality. *This function is available via FW update.
