The first step up
A genuine step up
The first step up in Yamaha's Aventage Range of Home Theater Receivers. It is the most powerful in their more compact chassis. It offers increased sound quality, a second HDMI Output (Mirrored from the first) and slightly more input flexibility than the RX-A740
The next step is to the RX-A1040, which is even more powerful and offers outstanding build quality alongside 7.2 channel analogue audio "pre-outs", perfect if you want to use a power amplifier or something similar.
For a really reasonably priced component, the RX-A840 sounds great. With enough power to really convey the largest dynamic swings in movie sound tracks and high resolution music. Perfect with smaller speakers.
Best in Class Build Quality
With high quality components, such as 24bit Burr-Brown DAC's, pure direct circuitry and high quality video processing, it is a meaningful step up from Yamaha's "RX-V" range of home theatre amplifiers.
