Connectivity

The Yamaha RX-A2070 model can work as a video mixer - this is facilitated by the presence of 8 HDMI inputs and 2 outputs of the same type. And to connect other devices on the back of the receiver has a USB port.

Setup

System YPAO-R.S.C. analyzes the acoustics of the room and measures the various characteristics of the speakers, after which it calibrates the sound parameters to achieve optimal sound. To correct early reflections in order to obtain studio-quality sound, the system uses Reflected Sound Control technology for reflected sound control. There is also a function for normalizing DSP effects, which varies the parameters of the CINEMA DSP mode depending on the reflected sounds.
