The AVENTAGE line of high-performance AV receivers is based on the
audio design concept of providing a massive, full-bodied sound for movie
sound effects and the accurate reproduction of music sources. By
expertly harmonising traditional and advanced technologies, every factor
that affects sound quality, from materials and parts to construction,
layout, vibration damping (unique foot) and âfine-tuningâ the sound, is
handled with no other thought than to achieve the best possible audio
quality. As a result, every AVENTAGE model has the ability to reproduce
the most subtle details of high-definition sound, so that listeners can
enjoy a truly high-class sound studio experience at home.
The Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge is a fifth foot in the centre of the unit. It dampens vibrations from the power transformer, power transistors and heat sinks, as well as vibrations that might be caused by the sound from the speakers.
This is just one of the many design details that all combine to create a superior receiver. The interior of the unit has been precisely planned, circuit-routed and built so that the left and right channels are physically and electrically isolated. This naturally maximises channel separation, but also greatly improves signal to noise ratio and also helps to achieve a wide, open sound stage.
All of the AVENTAGE components feature the same sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminium front panel and silky touch volume/selector knobs. The aluminium front panel is used to effectively shield sensitive circuitry from external noise and electronic radiation generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors and so on. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments.
Every single part in an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For AVENTAGE models, extra time is taken to find (or develop) the exact parts needed to achieve the highest performance possible. Sound technicians go through a testing process to, in effect, âtuneâ the receiverâ˛s sound.
Incorporating the SABRE9006A Premier Audio DAC from ESS Technology to achieve an exceptionally good signal-to-noise ratio and up to 120 dB of dynamic range, this AV receiver produces professional quality digital audio.
The 21:9 aspect ratio support is designed to show films recorded in
the Cinema Scope format. When these films are viewed in the usual 16:9
ratio, you see black bars at the top and bottom of the screen; 21:9
eliminates these bars. By supporting 21:9 resolution, this model will be
able to pass it through so that movies and games feel much more
*This feature is not supported with some PC monitors with specific IT specification design.
Wi-Fi Built-in capability allows wireless connection with your household wireless router, greatly simplifying system connections to enjoy network audio and music streaming services.

The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimise distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analogue and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analogue circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.
AV Setup Guide is an app that makes it much easier to perform receiver setup, and also assists you with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices. It guides you through various settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amp assignment. System illustrations and actual AV receiver images help you understand how to make the connections between devices, for much quicker system setup. It is available in multiple languages. Designed for iOS and Android tablet.
Yamahaâ˛ s latest Graphical User Interface has a high resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and also includes a selectable Status Bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode and audio format. The GUI provides a choice of eight languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese, and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.
The SCENE PLUS function simplifies operation by providing one touch power-on along with selection of the desired source and the appropriate DSP programmes. SCENE PLUS offers a choice of 12 SCENE selections, four of which can be assigned to the second zone in a multi-zone system. SCENE PLUS can be selected from the front panel, remote control, GUI and even from the AV Controller app.
YPAO-R.S.C. analyses room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of eight listening positions. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalisation, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.
Human ears have less sensitivity to high and low frequencies, especially at lower volumes. YPAO Volume applies loudness EQ correction to automatically adjust high and low frequency levels as volume changes. Using the YPAO measurement results, EQ correction is optimised to your system settings and listening environment.
CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers.
The Virtual Presence Speaker function makes full use of centre and surround speakers to create virtual presence speakers. Enjoy CINEMA DSP 3D Mode surround sound even in environments where speaker installation is limited. In addition, This model also features a Virtual Surround Back Speaker function. Even without using surround back speakers, you can experience more natural sound from behind you.
Even when it is impossible to install surround speakers behind the listening position, Virtual CINEMA DSP reproduces virtual 7-channel surround sound filled with realism, from only two front speakers. The Virtual CINEMA FRONT feature lets you place two surround speakers and a centre speaker at the front to enjoy virtual 7-channel surround sound with even higher quality and resolution, as well as superior rear virtual sound localisation. Adding two additional front presence speakers provides a three-dimensional sound field that gives you a feeling of its height and depth and of the vertical movement of the sound. You get more flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.
Yamahaâ˛ s exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localisation and sound balance even with compact front speakers. When a subwoofer is used, it improves the volume of the entire low range of the speaker system, not only the front speakers, but also enhancing the bass from the subwoofer. You'll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamahaâ˛s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.
The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is âpushedâ toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilising the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.
HDMI zone switching offers the ability to individually select and send HD video programmes to two separate zones. Watch a Blu-ray Discâ˘ movie in the Main Zone while an HD cable TV broadcast plays in another room (Zone 2).
Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on what functions are selected. For example, in a 7.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is off, all 7.1 channels will be used in the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the two Surround Back channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2, and the Main Zone will receive 5.1 channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP 3D is on, the two Front Presence speakers will be powered and not the two Surround Back speakers. When CINEMA DSP 3D is off, this situation is reversed. Thanks to Intelligent Amp Assign, thereâ˛s no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the receiverâone more way Yamaha makes your life a little easier.
Yamahaâ˛s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.
* Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
Challenger M-65 was the first speaker in the new Dynavoice series and it has been a bestseller since its release.
We are now very proud to introduce the EX version. The sound through Challenger M-65 has always been of excellent quality where we have not found anything to improve. In EX version, the energy has been spent to create a speaker that looks as good as it sounds. We are confident that it will remain on the throne, now safer than ever.
Cabinet to M-65 is created for maximum stability. This is to provide a tight âhifi soundâ without box resonances. All walls, including the top and bottom are in 18mm MDF and sits on several internal braces to stabilize even better.
The tweeter and midrange are completely in separate boxes so that the elements do not interfere with each other. Make a simple âknock testâ and youâ˛ll understand what we mean.
At the top of the terminal thus you can find the 3 extra gold-plated contacts.
These are used to fine-tune the critical midrange area for your own taste. You can choose between -2 dB / 0 dB / +2 dB / +4 dB.
The fact that this area is changed, accordingly changes the whole character of the speaker. You can avoid contriving to change the bass / treble controls on the amplifier to the sound you prefer.
Put pins in the various X-Change-holes to change the range from 4 kHz -20 kHz, you decide how you want it to sound.
With Definition series we put the bar higher than ever â Great audio, design and finishing to suit the most discerning. The main characteristics of the center speakers are to be able to reproduce voices and partly to match the sound of the front speakers as a complete sound stage is created. Thanks to ribbon tweeter, all voices are very natural and as element-jetting is exactly the same as in the front area, the audio matching is perfect.
In order to achieve a perfect tonal match, all speakers have exactly the same elements. It is very common to equip center and satellite speakers with fewer elements than in the front area to save space. The Definition Series has exactly the same elements found in all of the speakers, making sound match and ensuring a great cinema experience. The X-Change terminal is available on all speakers.
To give a clean and stable sound as possible, it is required that the speaker cabinet is well made and mute. The Definition Series has all speakers made of 18mm MDF on the sides and 15 mm MDF + additional 18 mm painted beam in both the front and the back. Not only this, there are also 4 x 15 mm rods in the box. The speaker stands on an 18 mm matte-black painted feet and a more toned box, which you have to look for, even in much higher price ranges.
In version 4, the S-5 EX redesigned with rounded corners to look even prettier on the wall ...
Dynavoice Challenge S-5 EX is designed to match the Challenger M-65 and M-85 perfectly. It is just the same armament as the top of the M-65 and M-85. The midrange / woofer are 5.25-inch and the tweeter below is 1-inch Super Audio. Whit the same elements as in M-65 and M-85, the sound match very precise.
The pass ports are placed at the front in order to get a deep bass sound, but at the same time in order to be able to mount them right to the wall.
Put the speaker as front speakers in a smaller system and you will notice that the speakers have much higher capacity than a standard satellite speaker. If you desire the deepest bass, we recommend that you complement the system whit an active subwoofer.
