Yamaha RX-A8A, RX-A6A and RX-A4A: Next Generation AV Receivers

Yamaha is still investigating the issue of defective HDMI 2.1 chips in its current line of AV receivers, which, however, did not stop it from announcing three new devices. Supports HDMI 2.1.
“Yamaha’s 3 years of cabinet development, wiring configurations, exterior design and state-of-the-art components demonstrate our commitment to delivering high quality sound without compromise,” the company said.

The new Aventage RX-A8A, RX-A6A and RX-A4A series are premium units with 11, 9 and 7 amplification channels respectively, and support for Auro 3D, Dolby Atmos, DTS: X and many more features. Their sales will begin in the second half of this year.

The biggest question regarding new products is whether the HDMI 2.1 feature will work in them. As a reminder, the first generation Yamaha AV receivers with this technology – the 2020 RX-A2A, RX-V6A and RX-V4A – are experiencing the 4K / 120Hz transmission issues.
