Falling into the class of A/V AVENTAGE receivers is something that is taken very seriously when it comes to the audio/video industry. The RX-A800 A/V Receiver (Black) from Yamaha is a dramatic, inspired step forward in audio/video component design. The AVENTAGE RX-A800 A/V Receiver brings studio-grade sound and sophisticated video enhancements to the home as a result of unparalleled attention to detail in design, engineering and fabrication; all at a reasonable price. Details that, at first glance, would not seem to affect the quality of sight, sound, and control, when brought together within an AVENTAGE component produce a work of visual and acoustic art.

Every single item was engineered with brilliance throughout the design of the receiver. Technologies such as the H-shaped cross-member frame that goes across the top, bottom left and right sides of the chassis, reduces vibration and provide more support for the transformer and heat sinks. The symmetrical power amplifier layout improves signal to noise ratio with uniform balanced vibration control and improved sound experience. And the Ultra Low Jitter Circuitry reduces jitter from digital sources, including HDMI, using a more precise timing control, just to name a few.

Optional equipment available for your receiver includes an iPod/iPhone dock and a Bluetooth receiver. The dock is compatible with most recent iPods and iPhones.

Your Yamaha RX-A800 A/V Receiver meets the requirements of the most demanding videophiles at an entry-level price. You pick the speakers, DVD or Blu-ray player and TV and your RX-A800 will tie them all together.
