Yamaha has announced six new receivers for it’s Aventage line-up this year and they are the RX-A3050, RX-A2050, RX-A1050, RX-A850, RX-A750 and, last but not least, the RX-A550.


All six of these receivers are HDCP 2.2 compliant which means they shouldn’t have any issues handling copy protected 4K video. The RX-A750 and greater models will also support high dynamic range (HDR) video.


All receivers in the Aventage line-up this year feature pretty good networking capabilities thanks to their built-in Bluetooth and WiFi. HD music lovers will also be pleased to hear that all models are capable of decoding several HD audio formats including DSD (Direct Stream Digital; 2.6 MHz / 5.6 MHz), AIFF, WAV, FLAC and Apple® Lossless audio.


The RX-A850 and up feature support for Dolby’s new Atmos format while the 1050, 2050 and 3050 are also capable of decoding DTS:X. Yamaha’s flagship RX-A3050 boasts 9.2 channels and is capable of expanding to 11.2. It’s also equipped with an ultra-high performance ESS Technology 192 kHz/32-bit SABRE32i™ Ultra DAC.


The 5.1 channel RX-A550 is the least expensive unit in Yamaha’s Aventage line-up this year. It features the same premium build quality as the other models but has a more attractive price for consumers. The street price and release dates for these new models are as follows:
