The RX-A1070 is set to be a firm favourite for higher end applications where massive sound, flexible inter-connectivity and thoroughbred performance is required. The largest and most flexible 7.2 AV receiver from the AVENTAGE line, the RX-A1070 is a Dolby Atmos® & DTS:X™ compliant AV receiver, with Yamaha MusicCast inbuilt 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. The RX-A1070 features both serial and 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-A1070 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-A1070 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. With extensive control system support and 3rd party control options there for serial or network control it is a must for higher end installers wanting the best and most reliable AV integration within projects.

The RX-A1070 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-A1070 - 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-A1070 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-A1070 also now features a DAB / DAB+ tuner for flexible and high quality radio playback.

The RX-A1070 features 8 HDMI® inputs with 2 HDMI outputs (zoned). 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 & 4K video upscaling from analogue and HDMI® input), 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-A1070 also features a fully discrete zone 2 output, as it can be deployed to utilise the amplified output stage as a secondary zone (when the AV receiver has a 5.1 main zone), or the line out for external amplification too. It also enables a dedicated HDMI output for the secondary zone , meaning that a second room in a project can also benefit from HD video independently. This installation friendly feature is also bolstered by the sharing of analogue, and most importantly digital inputs/sources in the secondary area/zone as well. This means that any source inputted into the main can be shared or accessed 'system wide', making it a flexible product for a host of AV applications - or small multi-room project requirements.

The audio prowess of the AVENTAGE range comes into reality with the RX-A1070. The AVENTAGE line of high-performance AV receivers is 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 harmonising 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. From the chassis design, internal power supplies and Yamaha's discrete amplifier configuration - the RX-A870 will fill a room with total purity for the finest sound quality. Add in ultra high resolution DACS and a dedicated phono input for vinyl lovers - means that the RX-A1070 only underpins its class leading credentials further.

The RX-A1070 is an absolute must for those systems that demand outstanding performance, control, connectivity and reliability too.
