AV-receiver Yamaha RX-A810 Aventage

Appearance Yamaha RX-A810 is sustained in a recognizable trademark style. Facade is divided horizontally into two unequal parts: the lower dressed in noble black-aluminum, top closed dark plastic cover that hides a large information display. On the border of these zones lined flat keys minor modes of the receiver. On the bottom half of the stand out of the direct selection of one of four user presets and the volume control knob and input selector. Operational switching connectors are hidden in a niche of the special door where mounted jack headphone output terminal HDMI, port USB, universal AV-in on three connectors RCA, input of the microphone system YPAO automatic calibration and a few minor keys. Switching arsenal on the back wall of the housing slightly simplified as compared with the older models range Aventage, but everything you need for most purposes, there is more than sufficient. Surprising number of ports HDMI - there are only ten: eight inputs (including one located on the front) and two outputs; with all the richness of fantasy is hard to imagine so many sources in AV-system. However, as is well known, store is no sore. All HDMI ports conform to the specification 1.4, and hence, Yamaha RX-A810 is ready to work with three-dimensional video. This component is allocated among the competitors and a built phono stage for a turntable - in the light of the renewed interest in vinyl this opportunity may well be required. Like the rest of the test, the receiver is able to reproduce multimedia content not only with the external USB-drives, but also with the DLNA servers in your home network. Thus the list of supported file formats, except the usual set includes the popular FLAC container with the material digitized with parameters up to 24 bit/96 kHz. Integration RX-A810 to a computer network will enable not only listen to a broadcast of the set of Internet radio stations, but also gain access to the additional weight of the receiver through a web interface. Through the company's Port Yamaha DOCK to the device connected expansion modules - from a docking station for iPod and iPhone to the wireless adapter Bluetooth.

The internal organization of space is quite common. Large W-shaped power transformer is installed on the left bookcase electronic circuit board is mounted in the rear wall of the housing, and directly behind the front panel is placed aluminum plate with tin ribs, which plays the role of a radiator cooling output stages. The highlight of the design was the fifth pillar ART Wedge rigid frame onto which are mounted all the machine components, - it serves to suppress vibration and insulation from the external receiver modules resonances. Decoding and processing the digital stream assigned processor Texas Instruments Cinema DSP, and for digital to analog conversion, as in the older models, responsible chips Burr-Brown DSD1791 and DSD1796, operates with signals 24-bit/192 kHz.

Accompanying movies immediately drew the attention of the most accurate processing of audio tracks. Spatial study carried out so delicately that moving virtual sound sources can be traced quite clearly. To detail and density of the surrounding sound picture also no complaints. But the most dramatic and intense scenes of the receiver is a bit lacking pressure for reliable playback of energetic bursts, with an increase in volume to rectify the situation is not possible.
