Features

The receiver Yamaha RX-A1060 uses a symmetrical arrangement of amplifiers and DACs from ESS Saber. It already produces 170 watts per channel, and the sound adjustment system is supplemented by 7.1 channels. In general, the receiver is capable of playing music in high quality, among the readable formats ALAC 24 bit / 96 kHz, WAV, AIFF, FLAC up to 24 bit / 192 kHz, DSD 5.6 MHz. It features Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for surround sound realism in Yamaha RX-A1060BL specs.

Design and build

In terms of external design, it becomes apparent the company's loyalty to the once-chosen design standard: rigor and asceticism of forms, elegant gloss of details and well-proven ergonomics. It should also be said that with such an impressive "techno-stuffing" receiver weighs not so much: 18 kg. Of the important internal features, it is necessary to mention support for the MusicCAST wireless multi-room system, as well as the ability to "read" audio files with the highest resolution.

Connectivity

Improved HDMI switching between zones and the ability to adjust the sound in the second zone. Like other modern products from Yamaha, the receiver of this series is part of the proprietary MusicCast multi-room system: there is built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The receiver has a built-in phono preamp for vinyl enthusiasts.

Setup

Speaking of software modules that improve the quality of signal broadcasting, one cannot fail to mention the proprietary Yamaha operating time: YPAO. In fact, this is an updated YPAO, supplemented by a manual PEQ tuning function, which will improve the audio characteristics of low-frequency speakers.
