AVENTAGE 5th anniversary commemorated with state-of-the-art model line-up

Launched in 2010, Yamaha’s premier AVENTAGE Series has since grown its reputation to critical acclaim and is regarded as the leading brand of AV Receivers in Australia today. Series V once again establishes AVENTAGE at the forefront of the market - embodying Yamaha’s pursuit of the ultimate in home entertainment.

In its milestone 5th anniversary, AVENTAGE pushes the boundaries of functionality and innovation in the home – featuring the latest wireless technologies such as built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (via the included YBA-11 adaptor). Other hallmarks of the series include Pandora® and Spotify Connect® music streaming services, AirPlay®, high-resolution audio streaming encompassing FLAC and Apple Lossless, and support for the new HDMI standard to accommodate increased frame rates for 4K Ultra HD and deeper colour spaces.

Meeting the multi-room demands of today’s tech-savvy home, AVENTAGE comes equipped with an increasing array of configuration options as you move up through the series. From Zone 2, to Zone B HDMI, to Zone 3 and Zone 4 HDMI, AVENTAGE Receivers provide the most flexible and comprehensive configuration options to satisfy the needs of any home.

“AVENTAGE Series V solidifies Yamaha’s position as the world’s premier manufacturer of home entertainment products”, commented Justin d’Offay – Product Manager for Yamaha Music Australia’s AV Division.

Serving as the cornerstone of the range is Yamaha’s Natural Sound reproduction. AVENTAGE Series V has been meticulously designed and engineered with this objective. The subsequent sound produced is the result of optimally-arranged circuits, hand-picked components and the most exhaustive testing and tuning to ensure the AVENTAGE legacy is maintained.

From a build perspective, traits such as reliability and luxury have become synonymous with Yamaha’s premier range. The signature A.R.T. (Anti-Resonance Technology) Wedge, also known as the 5th foot, aids in vibration control as do enhancements to the internal chassis on higher models. Each model in the range is appointed with an aluminium fascia – not only for aesthetic purposes but to also shield internal circuitry from external noise.

A reflection of Yamaha’s dedication to home entertainment, AVENTAGE Series V attracts a 4 year warranty (12 month replacement warranty) applicable to all AV Receiver models and within the series, and a 2 year (2 month replacement) warranty for the BD-A1040 Universal Disc Player.
