Yamaha RX-A780 review

In terms of processor capabilities, the model is all right - there is support for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, as well as all previous generations of surround formats. The digital-to-analog conversion is entrusted to Texas Instruments Burr-Brown chips, reproducible audio signals include PCM 24/192 and DSD 11.2 MHz. Integration into a modern home theater system will be easy thanks to the presence of 5 inputs and 2 HDMI outputs with support for Dolby Vision, HLG and HDR10. Like any modern high-level receiver, the Yamaha RX-A780 can be integrated into multi-room installations thanks to both the proprietary MusicCast system and AirPlay 2. The Music Enhancer function improves the quality sound compressed audio. Yamaha RX-A780
