Surround:AI

This artificial intelligence analyzes the DSP parameters and optimizes the surround effect of distinct sound elements such as background music, dialogue, and sound effects. It's like having a professional sound engineer tune the sound according to the scene. 64-bit processing is achieved with the Qualcomm QCS407.

Crafted for Clarity

The newly designed Anti-Resonance Technology (A.R.T.), H-shaped cross frame, and mechanical structure are a rock-solid defense against internal and external vibrations that affect the sound. Experience crystal-clear sound that moves you, all while your A/V receiver stays perfectly still.

High-Quality Digital Components

The Qualcomm QCS407 takes the receiver's surround sound to the next level with support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. With the ESS SABRE ES9007S Premier Audio DAC, you get extraordinary signal-to-noise ratio and up to 120 dB of dynamic range for professional quality audio.

Cinema DSP HD3

This unique Yamaha proprietary sound field playback technology was created by combining actual measured sound field data with cutting-edge digital signal processing technology.

Yamaha RX-A4ABL Reviews

Center Channel Broken,

By Swapnil
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-25

I was looking forward to upgrading my Yamaha AV for 4K & new theatre. Ordered A4A and was met with surprises: 1) The network update won't work, had to use USB to get 4K 120Hz support 2) I started off with 2.1 set-up as I waited for Atmos speakers. Once the center and surround arrived. I found that there was no output for center. I changed speakers. Nothing. They worked find on old yamaha. It's VERY dissapointing as we were looking forward to the set-up for week-end enjoyment. I made a mistake and threw the main box away, as I had no clue that this was broken. Awaiting for B&H to return it. They have been great so far so expecting no different. That said NOT recommended. QA testing has been very poor.

I had to wait a long time for this receiver, but it was worth the wait. I was upgrading from an older Denon receiver. Everything set up easily and the audio sounds amazing through it.
