One of the most interesting new features is only available in the two receivers that mark the top of the line. The $1,499 RX-A2000 and $1,899 RX-A3000 are the first receivers that include HQV "Vida" video processing. Other receivers got smaller and less obvious upgrades, such as an increase in power efficiency, double-bottom construction to increase performance, new wiring, fuses, and even a fifth foot to increase stability.
"Yamaha had one goal in mind in creating the Aventage series," says company president , "to achieve the purest, best-sounding audio and the best video reproduction possible." Along with the two high-end receivers above, Yamaha is releasing the RX-A700 for $649, the RX-A800 for $799, and the RX-A1000 for $1,099. The Aventage series starts rolling out this month and should be on shelves at authorized retailers by September.
