Yamaha Redesigns Receivers for New Aventage Line  Print E-mail

Yamaha announced the Aventage line today, which includes five 3D receivers that were completely reworked from the ground up.   It's not the next generation of receivers, as Yamaha is quick to point out, but a new take on current products with tweaks here and there.

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 Tom Sumner, "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.
