In the middle of 2019 Yamaha has released a new model of the AV receiver in the Aventage series. The novelty is called Yamaha RX-A780, it differs from the previous one in the catalog of the 680th model with increased power and additional inputs and outputs. Follow this Yamaha RX-A780 review to see all the Yamaha RX-A780 specs.
The Yamaha RX-A780 AV receiver delivers 130 watts per channel to a 6 ohm load. As expected, the Yamaha receiver is fully ready to receive and transmit 4K and HDR of all types. They have not forgotten about object-oriented formats either: the device of the series cope with Dolby Atmos and DTS: X decoding. The receiver comes equipped with Yamaha’s Cinema DSP 3D which is a more simple version of the HD3 version we had seen in some of the top tier AVENTAGE models. With Cinema DSP 3D the receiver can create natural stereoscopic sound fields like movie theaters or concert halls from a selection of 17 different DSP programs.
The front has the usual design we see in many receivers nowadays with two big turning knobs at each side of the bottom half with the right one for the volume and the left for selecting input sources. The top half has a reflective gloss surface that is a bit of a fingerprint magnet with a functions display dead center and a thin line of buttons under it that includes some basic functions like zone 2 controls, tuner and memory buttons. On the far right there is a small pure direct button while on the left the main power button. The receiver is built on an ART anti-resonance chassis, Burr-Brown chips with 32 bit / 384 kHz parameters are installed in the DAC section, the processor supports Dolby Atmos and DTS: X, plus 17 proprietary Yamaha DSP 3D sound processing algorithms.
A pair of HDMI connectors, an optical digital input, as well as an output from a pre-amplifier to RCA were added to the equipment.
YPAO's proprietary automatic calibration system includes an RSC (Reflected Sound Control) circuit. The presence of MusicCast Surround support allows you to set up the Wireless MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 as the rear speakers, as well as the MusicCast SUB 100 subwoofer.
