Yamaha CX-A5200BL overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy streaming audio and immersive multi-channel sound with your amplifier and the Yamaha AVENTAGE CX-A5200 11.2-Channel MusicCast Preamplifier. It sports an 11.2-channel XLR pre-out and features Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatibility for object-based audio decoding. Built-in Bluetooth and AirPlay support allows the preamplifier to wirelessly stream music from compatible sources, such as smartphones and tablets.

Onboard Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity allows the AVENTAGE CX-A5200 to access music from your connected computer or NAS. Amazon Alexa compatibility enables you to control certain functions of the preamplifier with just your voice through your Alexa-enabled devices. With seven HDMI inputs and three outputs, the CX-A5200 can act as a video switcher for your HD source components. It will pass through HDR UHD 4K signals as well as HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG HDR formats. The preamplifier also has a USB port for accessing media stored on USB flash drives.

Note: Access to certain Internet-based content may require a subscription to a service.

This AI technology built into the DSP analyzes the scene of your content and creates a surround effect to help reproduce it with augmented realism. In real time, this AI analyzes scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements, such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds, and sound effects, and automatically enhances the surround effect to help provide greater realism.
Dolby Atmos & DTS:X
These object-based sound technologies are designed to create realistic surround sound, positioning and moving individual sounds to nearly any virtual point in your room, including overhead.
In addition to Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and conventional channel-based audio, a 3D space can be simulated in which separate acoustic elements can move freely, providing a sensation of the motion of sound effects above your head. CINEMA DSP HD3 uses signal processing algorithms to help heighten this sense of realism.
YPAO-RSC (Reflected Sound Control)
YPAO-RSC analyzes the room acoustics with the included microphone to tune your system for optimal sound in your room. It uses RSC to correct early reflections for enhanced sound. YPAO 3D is designed to provide automatic sound parameter optimization that maximizes the 3D sound field of CINEMA DSP HD3 as well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, and with 64-bit EQ calculations, this technology helps produce natural room acoustics.
Dual ESS SABRE PRO Premier (ES9026 PRO) DACs
Incorporating two ESS SABRE PRO Premier (ES9026 PRO) DACs helps further enhance the signal-to-noise ratio and achieve up to 32-bit performance.
Large Power Transformer with Vibration Dampening Plate
The CX-A5200 features a large power transformer to help maximize performance and precision. Deep, powerful sound is achieved with enhanced regulation of power, while a thick brass plate helps dampen unwanted vibrations.
Thick Bottom Plate
Stabilizing the chassis is the key to enhanced performance and sound. The CX-A5200 achieves this by employing a thick bottom plate, which acts to steady and immobilize the entire structure and achieve optimal sound.
Balanced Connections and XLR Terminals
Electrical noise is an inherent issue with cabling due to connection with other A/V components, the connections between them, and from other sources of external noise. To ensure that the CX-A5200 is not affected by such distortion, it uses balanced, noise-resistant terminals. Even the RCA unbalanced connections use a ground-sensing transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission. Further, the XLR terminals allow for the use of long cables. The CX-A5200 also allows a balanced audio input connection from audiophile-grade source components such as CD players.
Built-In Streaming Services
With built-in music streaming services and connectivity options, you can enjoy all your content, including Internet radio stations and music from your compatible smart devices with the CX-A5200.
Voice Control with Amazon Alexa and MusicCast
With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. Use any Alexa-enabled device to control either the amplifier by itself or multiple MusicCast devices throughout your home.
Bluetooth and AirPlay Compatibility
The CX-A5200 features Bluetooth connectivity for simple, convenient wireless msuic streaming from your compatible smart devices, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops. iTunes and iOS users can use AirPlay to wirelessly stream audio seamlessly from compatible devices.
MusicCast for Whole-Home Music
MusicCast makes it easy to share audio throughout the home using your Wi-Fi network. The CX-A5200 is designed to work seamlessly with other MusicCast products, including multi-room streaming amplifiers, soundbars, wireless speakers, and hi-fi gear, and they're all controllable from the MusicCast app or from a third-party control system such as Control4, RTI, or ELAN.
