Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A1000 Audio/Video Receiver: An Inspired Leap Forward in Home Entertainment
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. We 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 RX-A1000 A/V Receiver offers 3D and Audio Return Channel over 8 in/2 out HDMI, CINEMA DSP 3D, new GUI, new YPAO with Multi-Point Control, and an RS232 port with and Control4® certification for integration with custom installations. Along with network functions like DLNA certification and control via your web browser, the RX-A1000 is ready to become your home entertainment power player.
A Unique Approach to Enhanced Performance
Enhanced Stability: Double Bottom Construction and a Specially Designed 5th Foot (A.R.T. Wedge)
Strong stability in an amplifier design reduces noise and jitter in your digital signal for clearer audio and video. 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 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 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-A1000, it could cost you less to run.
Unparalleled Control: New GUI, Web Browser Control, iPhone App, and RS-232 for Custom Installation
The RX-A1000 features many ways to control your media. A new full-color GUI 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-A1000 integrate easily with any custom home theater installation. Control4® certification provides effortless entertainment, comfort, convenience and peace of mind with one of the most popular home automation platforms.
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. Current functionality includes multi-zone control over the available inputs, volume, mute and power commands by zone. The RX-A1000 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).
How AVENTAGE Delivers Lifelike Sound and Picture Quality
The Latest HDMI Features and High-Definition Audio Decoders for a Cinematic Experience
With seven channels and 735 watts of powerful surround sound (105W x 7 RMS), 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-A1000 features 8 1080p-compatible HDMI inputs (including 1 front) and 2 HDMI outputs (simultaneous), the RX-A1000 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 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.
New SCENE PLUS features 12 SCENE choices (4 on front panel for quick setting changes and others via the full-color GUI), including 4 SCENE buttons for Zone 2/Zone 3. 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.
Multizone Capability for Extending Your Home Theater Experience
With support for audio and video in up to two zones, the RX-A1000 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.

I upgrated from an older Yamaha 5.1 receiver and added the front L+R speakers. The sound is just amazing. I also purchased the iPod dock which works absolutely great with the iPod Touch. However, it does not work with the iPhone 4. I am getting the Panasonic Viera TV in a couple of weeks and with the Panasonic 3D DVD player, I don't think I will be going to the movies as often. this receiver is a great product and it is built to last.
The on-screen menu is easy to understand and very quick when changing sound programs etc.
Now the things I dont like - The audio levels are much lower than my RV1105. Eventhough this is rated @105W/channel, the audio @-25db is no where near the audio levels of my old RV1105. My old RV1105 sounds so much louder than the RXA1000. I have to put it @-20dB to have a decent sound effect in my Home theater. I think the RXA1000 is trimming down the volume, and I have even complained to Yamaha with no response.Read more ›
I have a 7 year old Harman Kardon AVR335 entry level receiver that does not have HDMI inputs/outputs and can't decode newer surround formats and is only 55W/channel so i was looking for a replacement that could address all these issues. I love the HK - its awsome and sound absolutelyy fantastic so thouhgt i should get a higher grade receiver if buying a different brand to get the quality. This Aventage A1000 seems a nice fit for my needs/budget.
The first uh-oh came when i unplugged the HK and removed it from the cabinet and lifted the A1000 to put in its place - the A1000 was decisively lighter than the old HK. It does look nice though. Connected all my components/speakers and ran the YPAO to let it adjust speakers settings. At first i was impressed with its sound but then i noticed it is quite low at same volume level as my HK. Searched AV forums and changed the Volume Trim to +6. Second issue was that it totally killed my twin 12" awesome subs - these used to shake the house and now they barely registed any base. I manually changed the level of subs from -6.5 to -2 but still its no the same. Also it only shows SUB1 on the front panel display while i have connected both SUB1 and SUB2 pre-outs.Read more ›
