Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A1080 review

The AVENTAGE Series RX-A1080 features a smart, minimalist design with an elegant aluminum front panel. More importantly, the device is exceptionally sturdy - from the inside it is reinforced with stiffeners in the form of the letter “H”. The device is also equipped with anti-resonance technology (A.R.T.), which is the fifth leg in the center of the device, absorbing vibration from a power amplifier and other sources. Thanks to these features, the device is more stable, the resonance of the legs decreases, thereby effectively eliminating external vibrations and maintaining the highest sound quality.
