Yamaha RX-A3070BL

Features

Unlike most competitors in this class, the Yamaha RX-A3070 Aventage can not only switch the video signal received via HDMI but also scale the material Full HD or SD resolution to 4K parameters. A distinctive feature in the Yamaha RX-A3070BL specs is an amplifier with a power of 230 watts per channel with a resistance of 4 ohms, which can create the effect of an 11.1 system using only the configuration of 7.1 speakers. Soundtrack decoding and all digital sound processing are performed by two Cinema DSP processors. The digital streams are converted to analog signals using two Burr-Brown PCM 9210 chips and a pair of Burr-Brown PCM 510 chips. The HQV Vida VHD1900EVG processor works with the video material.

Design and build

The design is in the tradition of Yamaha - the front panel is cut horizontally into two halves. The upper one is a dark plastic overlay that hides a large information display. The lower part is finished with metal. There are only two large knobs at the edges, all other controls are hidden under the panel in the center. Inside, the central place is occupied by a large power transformer with a W-shaped core. Below him is the A.R.T. Wedge, designed to dampen vibrations from the power unit of the receiver. Power amplifiers are installed along the side walls. The output stages are performed on selected pairs of Sanken STD05N / STD05P transistors.

Yamaha RX-A3070BL pros and cons

Pros

  • Yamaha RX-A3070 Aventage demonstrated a very powerful and dynamic, but at the same time soft sound.

Cons

  • The receiver does not support MHL protocol
  • With such a power receiver, the cooling system cannot cope with the removal of heat from the components
  • Amplifier power in excess. It would not be out of place to add support for the Third Zone
