Yamaha RX-A3080 Aventage 9.2-channel AVENTAGE model featuring the latest, most advanced Surround:AI, highest quality DACs, and ultimate quality XLR terminals.
The Total Purity Concept is designed to encompass high-drive amp technology, high-purity preamplification, anti-vibration technology, and independent, pure power supplies. The receiver has fully discrete power amplifiers that help minimize distortion and adopts pure independent power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heat sinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure.
The Anti-Resonance Technology Wedge is a fifth foot in the center of the receiver. It is engineered to dampen vibrations from the power transformer, power transistors, and heat sinks, as well as vibrations that might be caused by the sound from the speakers.
The interior of the receiver has been circuit-routed and built so that the left and right channels are physically and electrically isolated, helping to maximize channel separation and enhance the signal-to-noise ratio while also helping to achieve an open sound stage.
The RX-A3080 comes equipped with XLR balanced audio input/output terminals. In combination with a Blu-ray or CD player equipped with balanced output terminals, this enables high-quality signal transmission with reduced degradation of sound quality due to external noise. The balanced input terminals feature gold-plated connections produced by Neutrik.
This receiver can pass-through UHD video at 60 frames per second, as well as the HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG HDR formats for enhanced contrast and colors.
ESS's 32-bit Hyper Stream Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) compensation function helps minimize noise levels. In combination with Yamaha's D.O.P.G. (DAC On Pure Ground) concept, which virtually eliminates the potential difference between two audio circuit stages to reduce ground noise, it enhances silence and resolution over the entire audio range for enhanced reproduction of even delicate sounds.
