From the Manufacturer
RX-A830 7.2 Channel Network AVENTAGE AV Receiver
Experience a Higher Level of Audio Performance with the RX-A830 AVENTAGE Network Receiver
The AVENTAGE line of high-performance AV receivers are based on the audio design concept of providing a massive, full-bodied sound for movie sound effects and the accurate reproduction of music sources. By expertly harmonizing traditional and advanced technologies, every factor that affects sound quality, from materials and parts to construction, layout, vibration damping (unique foot) and "fine-tuning" the sound, is handled with no other thought than to achieve the best possible audio quality. As a result, every AVENTAGE model has the ability to reproduce the most subtle details of high-definition sound so that listeners can enjoy a truly high-class sound studio experience at home.
Anti-Resonance Technology Wedge Helps to Ensure that Vibrations Do Not Affect Sound Quality
The Anti-Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge is a fifth foot in the center of the unit. It dampens vibrations from the power transformer, power transistors and heat sinks, as well as vibrations that might be caused by the sound from the speakers.
Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality
The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimize distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.
Ultra HD (4K) Pass-through and Upscaling Supports Latest High Resolution Video Formats
This AV receiver's HDMI input/output supports Ultra HD (4K) video image pass-through. It also can perform Ultra HD (4K) upscaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high-def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats.
HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable with no need for an extra optical cable.
High Quality Video Processing with Edge Adaptive Deinterlacing
In ordinary deinterlacing, pixels in areas of movement are interpolated by upper and lower ranges. This causes jaggies in diagonal lines. Edge adaptive deinterlacing detects the direction of the line and interpolates the pixels optimally.
This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet radio, Pandora and Rhapsody, and operate your system via WebBrowser Control. The AV Controller App (from iTunes® App Store or Google Play) lets you control various functions from your iPod®, iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ phones/tablets.
AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
This AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller App that is downloadable from the iTunes App Store or Google Play to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone or Android device. You can also use in as many as 23* different languages and customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.
*As of Spring 2013.
AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV Receiver
This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from an iPod, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on a Mac® or PC. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can view metadata such as song title and artist name as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen display.
*Some models don't support album art display.
MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) Support for High Quality Video and Audio
MHL provides easy, direct connection of compatible mobile phones to this AV receiver. Playback of up to 1080p video and multi-channel audio is supported. The receiver also charges the connected phone. Play, stop and other basic operations can be controlled from the remote control.
USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver's remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone/iPad music playback functions.
YPAO™ R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) Sound Optimization with Multi-point Measurement
YPAO R.S.C. analyzes room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of eight listening positions. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.
Intelligent Amp Assign
Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers depending on what functions are selected. For example, when Zone 2 is off, all 7.1 channels will be used in the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the two surround back channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2 and the Main Zone will receive 5.1 channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP 3D is on, the two Front Presence speakers will be powered and not the two surround back speakers. When CINEMA DSP 3D is off, this situation is reversed. Thanks to Intelligent Amp Assign, there's no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the receiver—one more way Yamaha makes your life a little easier.
Advanced Multi-language GUI On-screen Display
Yamaha's latest graphical user interface has a high resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and also includes a selectable status bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode and audio format. The GUI provides a choice of eight languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.
SCENE for One-touch Start
Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.
YWA-10 Wi-Fi Adapter lets you stream music wirelessly via a router from network components such as a PC or NAS.
YBA-11, Bluetooth® Wireless Adapter lets you stream music wirelessly from a Bluetooth-capable smartphone, tablet or PC without a Wi-Fi environment.
HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker
CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speakers deliver 3D sound without actual use of presence speakers.
New Virtual CINEMA DSP for 7.1 Channel Surround Sound
New Virtual CINEMA DSP provides virtual 7.1 channel surround sound from only front speakers (2.1 channel), with no need for rear speakers. Using new 24 kHz HRTF (Head-related Transfer Function) technology, it creates a rear sound field that is extremely spacious, natural and powerful.
Compressed Music Enhancer
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.

ECO Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20 Percent*
Yamaha's ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20 percent. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.

The only thing missing is the support of the newer codecs, like Dolby Atmos and DTS Xneo, and is not HDMI 2.0, and HTCP 2.2 complaint. However, there's not to much media that actually supports those codecs yet.
WOW, what sound... amazing, deep and clear! I'm using JBL speakers and the sound is really crispy and clear. I tested with some Blu-Rays, Spotify and Audio CD and this is really great. The number of inputs is also really good, I have all my stuffs connected through HDMI (Cable Receiver, XBO, BD player and Amazon Fire TV). The TV has a HDMI ARC port that is also working great. I have/had other Yamaha stuffs (receiver, mini-system, keyboard) and the quality is unquestionable.
For sure for this price you won't get any better than this.
This unit does not support HDMI 2.0 and is not HDCP 2.2 compliant. This gave me some hesitation when I purchased it. I have noticed that 4k/UHD is picking up some serious steam and 4k content is becoming more available. I expect it will be at least a few years until I jump in to the 4K arena. I thought the $500 price tag was a steal for this AVENTAGE receiver. I hope that down the road, I will have another opportunity to pick up another closeout on an HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 AVENTAGE receiver when the upgrade becomes more of a necessity. In the meantime, I will enjoy 1080P on my plasma TV with the spectacular sound from this Yamaha receiver.
I just don't like the interface which seems old for its time but it works just got to get use to it. Like any other systems its better to do manual calibration of the system. So you got to play around with the sound until you find the right settings that works for your area. And this is great receiver so far had no issues what so whatever. I will update this later after few months of use of this receiver.
I continue to be amazed, the parametric EQ allows me to adjust each speaker separately. I set them for flat then bump up the 1K to make the vocals POP. Nice to have a built in sub control for after you use the YPAO. Front presence speakers are fantastic! I have a wonderful sound stage and center image.
