Yamaha AVENTAGE Front Panel USB
A USB port on the front panel allows direct connection of your iPod or iPhone

AVENTAGE is a dramatic, inspired leap forward in audio/video component design. AVENTAGE brings studio grade sound and sophisticated video enhancements to your home with unparalleled attention to detail in design, engineering, and fabrication. Yamaha has rethought every electrical path, every part, every piece, and every material to maximize performance. Details that at first glance would not seem to affect the quality of sight, sound, and control, when brought together in an AVENTAGE component, produce a work of visual and acoustic art.

In addition to an innovative new construction design, the 7.2-channel RX-A1010 A/V Receiver offers 3D and Audio Return Channel over 8 in/2 out HDMI, multipoint YPAO, SCENE PLUS, and network functions including web browser control and AV Controller app compatibility. You also get backup and recovery of your system settings, as well as Zone 2 video switching and audio controls.

A Unique Approach to Enhanced Performance

HD Radio with iTunes Tagging

Traditionally, broadcast radio is analog. HD Radio Technology converts the traditional analog radio broadcast to digital and provides advanced audio and data features that enhance your listening experience. One of the most popular features of HD Radio Technology is the extra channels that you receive when you listen to HD Radio broadcasts. These extra channels are called HD2/HD3 Channels, and are located on the FM dial, adjacent to your long-time favorite stations. Your local radio stations are inventing all kinds of unique and fun to listen to HD2/HD3s Channels--everything from deep cuts, to classical, to new music formats, to in-language programming and hosts of other creative stuff.

iTunes Tagging provides you a simple way to capture songs you hear on the radio for future purchase. Songs that you tag appear on your personal iTunes account in a list called "Tagged Songs."

Unparalleled Control: RS-232 for Custom Installation, New GUI, and iPhone/Android App

The RX-A1010 features many ways to control your media. A new full-color GUI (on screen display) with support for album art lets you browse movies, music, and settings on your HDTV. DLNA compatibility delivers network features: Using a local area network (LAN) connection and Windows Media Connect, you can play MP3, WMA and WAV music from your PC or laptop, or listen to any of the thousands of stations available on Internet radio using the included MP3 vTuner data service. Yamaha Network Receivers get you connected to the vast music content available anywhere on your LAN and on the web. You can even control your receiver from any computer in your local area network via a web browser.

The improved GUI lets you control your home entertainment system and adjust settings simply. Its updated, intuitive interface features an HD overlay, so you can call the menu and it will appear unintrusively for quick commands--without interrupting or switching from whatever's playing onscreen.

An RS-232 port lets the RX-A810 integrate easily with any custom home theater installation. Control4 certification means you can make Aventage work seamlessly with your other AV and home electronics products, all from a single remote or control panel, when installed in a custom home theater environment.

Need more connection options? The Yamaha AVENTAGE Control App allows for key control functions over your AVENTAGE networked multi-zone receivers. Allowing for instant access to music and other contents you want to enjoy in each of the connected zones. AVENTAGE Control App is available free for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android phones, and Android tablets.Current functionality includes multi-zone control over the available inputs, volume, mute and power commands by zone. The RX-A1010 also has a USB port for connecting your portable audio player or flash drive. It's SIRIUS Satellite Radio ready for even more music (subscription required). Or expand further with optional accessories like the Yamaha YDS-12 Universal Dock for iPod or the Yamaha YBA-10 Bluetooth Wireless Audio Receiver (sold separately).

Enhanced Stability: Double Bottom Construction and a Specially Designed 5th Foot (A.R.T. Wedge)
Yamaha AVENTAGE Fifth Foot
A specially designed fifth foot adds even more stability to reduce vibration

Strong stability in an amplifier design reduces noise and jitter in your digital signal for clearer audio and video. Yamaha's AVENTAGE series of amplifiers achieves maximum stability via a new H-shaped cross-member frame, with cross-members supporting the top, bottom, and sides of the chassis. High-grade, heavier terminals reduce vibration at the speaker connections. An additional bottom cover contributes extra support at higher volume levels for the power transformer and heat sinks. And the specially-designed fifth foot at the center of the amplifier--an Anti-Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge--improves overall structural rigidity and reduces vibration, resulting in a more stable signal and sound improvement.

Enhanced Power: Optimized Power Amplifier Layout with Ultra Low Jitter Circuitry

The symmetrical power amplifier layout evenly distributes weight across the amplifier to control vibration, improving signal-to-noise ratio for an improved sound experience. The high-quality Burr-Brown DACs feature a direct path to ground, not sharing the ground like in other amplifier designs, for a more efficient and clean signal. Built-in Ultra Low Jitter circuitry reduces jitter from digital sources, including HDMI, using a more precise timing control--so you can be sure of a stable audio/video signal, resulting in perfectly reproduced images and sound.

A hybrid power supply makes the AVENTAGE series even more efficient. Independent power supplies for the digital and analog circuit results in less power consumption in standby mode, and a more efficient power transformer--so despite the power of the RX-A1010, it could cost you less to run.

Multizone Capability for Extending Your Home Theater Experience

With support for audio and video in two zones, controllable by the full-color GUI and/or controls on front panel, the RX-A1010 can become your home entertainment hub no matter what room it's in. An included Party Mode enhances your next get-together. Your zone settings can be saved, backed up, and restored later for convenience.

How AVENTAGE Delivers Lifelike Sound and Picture Quality

The Latest HDMI Features and High-Definition Audio Decoders for a Cinematic Experience
Yamaha Aventage RX-A1010
SCENE buttons automatically launch multiple operations to make your devices work together

With seven channels and 110W x 7 watts of powerful surround sound, you can immerse yourself in your favorite movies and music. The latest HD Audio format decoding such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio render soundtracks in lifelike detail. The latest HDMI support brings features like Deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, 24Hz refresh rate capability, and Auto Lip-Sync compensation.

The RX-A1010 features 8 1080p-compatible HDMI inputs (including 1 front) and 2 HDMI outputs (simultaneous), the RX-A1010 has room and power to spare for all your high-definition home entertainment gear. The front HDMI input is great for quick connection of the latest gaming consoles and HD camcorders.

Exclusive Yamaha Features for Surround Realism
Yamaha Surround Realism
Enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without the surround speakers

Yamaha CINEMA DSP is an advanced exclusive technology for creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. 17 CINEMA DSP 3D settings let you customize the effect for your room. Adaptive DSP Level evaluates the difference between the volume level and a reference level, adjusting the DSP level to ensure optimum effectiveness, so you'll experience cinema-quality audio even at lower volumes.

CINEMA DSP's decoding technology also takes advantage of Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer, so you can enjoy your digital music library on your home theater system without sacrificing audio quality. Plus, CINEMA DSP 3D is expandable to 11.2 channels (with front and rear presence speakers) by adding an external amp--so the RX-A1010 is a receiver that can grow with you.

Pressing a single SCENE button automatically launches multiple operations to make your devices work together--no more fumbling with the remote control. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening, but can be customized to whatever you need.

Yamaha's YPAO system uses a small microphone (included) and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First, it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters, such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers and even the sound pressure level until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room--and you don't have to do anything.

Expand Your Yamaha System with Convenient Connectivity

The optional YDS-12 Universal Dock lets you connect your iPod or iPhone to the receiver. And the YDS-12 is "Works with iPhone"-certified, so you can get the most out of your iPhone music library with zero hassles.

The optional YID-W10 Wireless Dock System for iPod/iPhone ensures that you enjoy maximum sound quality and no lip sync (AV matching) problems.

The optional YBA-10 Bluetooth Wireless Audio Receiver docks to the receiver and supports A2DP stereo audio streaming, so users can enjoy music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, Windows PCs, and Macs.

This is an awesome unit. Crutchfield advisor recommended this unit as being the lowest-priced received to receive HD broadcasts but I found out after the purchase that the RX-A800 would also do this (at less than half the price!). Still, it works fantastic and will replace my trusty Sony 5.1 system I bought 11 years ago.

This unit is built like a tank (and weighs about at much), scales all input video to 1080i (the most my old, trusty Mitsubishi WS-55805 rear-projection TV can handle) and sounds absolutely awesome. (Note that you will need an adapter such as the ViewHD Two Input HDMI to RGB Component YPbPr / VGA 2x1 Switch Converter Support 5.1CH Surround Sound which will convert the HDMI output to proper component video) I've had company check their phone because the ringing they heard (from the TV) sounded like it was coming from where they left their real phone!

The YPAO placement is dead-on and makes for an awesome listening experience. If you're walking around, doing housework, then push the "Party" mode button to make listening a joy throughout the house (even with the volume low!).

I haven't played with the internet connectivity yet or remote operation with my Droid X, but if it works as well with those as it does with the included remote then I'm sure I'll be just as satisfied.

Highly recommended

Overall I like this receiver. The on screen display is great. The sounds is awesome. I have this unit paired with Definitive Tech ProMonitor 1000's, a ProCenter 2000 and a ProSub 1000.

Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 120v Speaker (Single, Black)
Definitive Technology ProCenter 2000 Compact Center Speaker (Single, Black)
Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000 Bookshelf Speaker (Single, Black)

The seven channel 110W x 7 watts sounds amazing. I love Yamaha for all their different DSP modes. The unit handles 3D HDMI and has a number of really nice features like Pandora, Napster, Rhapsody, and HD radio. I can control the unit over the internet and also from my Android phone.

I bought this unit because it was advertised as being able to do 2 zone video which it can. However, when using a second zone that is component, the input cannot be HDMI. In other words, if I had my Bluray player plugged into my RX-A1010BL via an HDMI cable, the receiver cannot output this content via the second zone component video output.

20 years ago I was a High End Home stereo salesman. I would say I am experienced at the least. I have had 2 Onkyos over the last 10 years. I thought they sounded good, maybe not great. My last txsr707 was a piece of garbage. It lasted 3 years and got so hot you could literally cook an egg on it. BiAmping did not make any difference, the sound was always dull. I searched reviews everywhere for months before I pulled the trigger on this.

So where to start? My system is the Yamaha A-1010, Kef Q55b's (front), Kef Q50 (center), Energy tsc ceiling and 10 inch sealed sub with a boston 10 inch vented sub.

I stream all musics via my Synology NAS. Worked perfectly out of the box!!!
Internet Radio, there are thousands of stations, most of high quality (for internet radio) I am guessing streaming at 192kbs.
The android APP is the killer part! You can control EVERYTHING better through the app then the remote.
Parametric EQ for all channels.
SOUND QUALITY!!! DID I MENTION SOUND QUALITY? I forgot how good the KEF's actually sound. They sound absolutely amazing!!! I have them bi-amped in a 5.1 setup. You can hear the difference in different drums, fingers on guitar strings etc.

if you are on the fence about a receiver due to 50/50 reviews. BUY THIS RECEIVER! Spend the extra 500 over a Onkyo and be totally impressed.

I can close my eyes and lose track of where the sound is coming from. The front stage is awesome. you cannot tell where the sound is coming from as it should be. The sound is the entire front stage.

It was very difficult to set up. I am an IT pro and can configure anything. This thing requires the manual included on the CD.
There are not Xover points to select!

Wow, great selection of inputs for just about anything you want to hook up. Only input missing is that front panel should have a port for connecting your mobile device headphone out to the unit. Remote is not simple to use; takes practice to learn it. I seem to be unable (on certain dvds) to change the decoder for different methods. Solved the remote issue by using Harmony One remote.
My center channel volume was not right, so I changed it out for a new one (Mark Logan 6 and 2 Mark Logan 10's) and now it sounds awesome. On Screen administration is great. Has plenty of power and is very smooth looking on the face. I thought it might put off a bunch of heat (I have it in a cabinet), but it seems to be just fine, no problems. So far, I am pleased with it.

One thing not mentioned in other reviews is the outstanding warranty that comes with this unit, THREE FULL YEARS parts and labor. Inside it is built like a piece of lab test equipment, very solid, well organized, plenty of heat sinks.

Besides Android and iOS apps to control this baby, it has a built-in web server. You can check the IP address that it has received from DHCP, plug it in to any browser on your home network, and have lovely control - select inputs, DSP modes, adjust volume, see what's playing on the XM or HD radios, etc. It does streaming XM as well as having an input for the satellite version.

Of course the foundation of such a fine possession is its sound quality, and here is an area where it really excells. I have it paired with an incredible Panasonic VT30 series 65" plasma, the effect is absolutely stunning. You hear layers of sound, individual details, especially using the hi-res decoders (Dolby True HD, DTS HD Master). You can decode SACD if you have a bitstream-enabled player such as an Oppo,

The remote works quite well and controls other components in your system, even the Apple TV.
