Perfect for smaller higher end home cinema systems, the new 7.2 channel AVENTAGE RX-A670 is set to be a firm favourite amongst custom installers - as it offers a performance upgrade from the RXv series. The RX-A670 is a Dolby Atmos® & DTS:X™ compliant AV receiver, with Yamaha MusicCast and a DAB / DAB+ tuner. Plus for those of you looking for integration, it also has been manufactured with one eye on control system integration as well. Like all the AVENTAGE series, the RX-A670 features network control with Yamaha's YNC & YNCA command protocols, and extended control system support (such as Control4®).

The AVENTAGE series has been manufactured with sound quality in mind first and foremost - and with the new support for Dolby Atmos® & DTS:X™, this AV Receiver will deliver that in abundance for any 'Object Based Audio' format. The combination of Dolby Atmos & DTS:X and Yamaha AV receivers will fill the room with multidimensional sound that makes your customers feel as if you are right in the middle of the story unfolding on the screen. The Yamaha AVENTAGE product line, expertly harmonise traditional and advanced technologies, and every factor that affects sound quality. From materials and parts to construction, layout, vibration damping (unique foot) and “fine-tuning” the sound, they ensure that any audio/visual reproduction 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.

Now being an 'object based audio' receiver means that the RX-A670 can be beautifully partnered with a range of speaker and subwoofer options from Connected Distribution's portfolio, especially for a range of excellent 5.1.2 applications. From outstanding Atlantic Technology in-wall's and in-ceilings, to dynamic and elegant Cabasse free-standing and on-wall options - or even powerful and adaptable options from Earthquake Sound. See here for more on our fantastic range of speaker packages.

For ease of integration the RX-A670 also benefits from Yamaha's AV web set up configuration, meaning projects can be set up swiftly and easily by simply loading the IP address of the unit in your web-browser. This feature even enables help on remote access too if required (3rd party software required), and enables changes on the fly quickly without the use of the OSD or front panel options. For installers it also has network control for integration with most control systems, plus it has Yamaha's extremely useful web set up and back up utility, which enables you to save and load the system set up for customers on initial installation, or remotely also - making it a must for the best installations.

The RX-A670 aside from the thrilling addition of object based audio processing is also a network receiver. Yamaha's adaptable MusicCast network 'ecosystem' is inbuilt in the RX-A670 - this not only enables easy grouping and playback with any other Yamaha MusicCast product in the home, it also opens up the world of music streaming music services also (High Res included). Set up wirelessly or hard wired the RX-A670 is the source for a host of high definition multi-media - musical or visual - it will fit beautifully into most applications. With MusicCast it enables users to use a smartphone or tablet together with the MusicCast CONTROLLER app to operate and change settings quickly and easily. The same Controller app functions as a remote control for all Yamaha MusicCast-compatible devices too. Alongside the excellent MusicCast platform, the new RX-A670 also now features a DAB / DAB+ tuner for flexible and high quality radio playback.

The RX-A670 features 4 HDMI® inputs with 1 HDMI output. The unit supports 4K Ultra HD Full with 4K60p (4:4:4) & HDCP2.2 - this means support for HDR Video including Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma, and BT.2020. Also it features handy HDMI upscaling (HDMI to HDMI), so those customers with existing lower grade video inter-connectivity can also get the best from these mediums - and benefit from simpler connectivity to screens also. Another new feature with the latest HDMI connectivity is the adoption of HDMI® with eARC (Audio Return Channel), enabling better quality multi-channel audio support for ease of use.

The RX-A670 is a fundamental option for many projects that require all the latest features, and also a powerful AV receiver that will 'multi-task' across most formats and connectivity. But also most importantly; those projects that demand the very best audio visual performance and Yamaha's outstanding reliability too.
