AVENTAGE Separates

AVENTAGE Separates represent the ultimate in home
entertainment and Yamaha establishes a new benchmark in performance and
innovation with the CX-A5200 pre-amplifier and MX-A5200 power amplifier.


Intelligent surround sound comes right out of the box.

This AI technology built into the DSP analyzes each scene
and creates an optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the greatest
effect. In real time, this AI instantaneously analyzes scenes by focusing on
distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds and
sound effects, and automatically optimizes the surround effect.

The result is a compelling sense of realism beyond
conventional sound field effects, giving you the best of every scene in an
entertainment experience.

A New Height in
Sound. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Object-based audio brings a sense of immersion to
breathtaking new heights through the use of overhead speakers and precise
location of sounds not just around the listener, but on a 3D plane.

Together with Dolby and DTS, Yamaha brings this latest
development in cinema surround sound into the home with astonishing realism and
unsurpassed performance.

A New Dimension in

In addition to conventional channel-based audio, a 3D space
can be created in which separate acoustic elements can move freely, giving a
sensation of the motion of ‘objects’ above the viewer’s head.

Improved CINEMA DSP HD3 features signal processing algorithms
to heighten this sense of realism further.

Calibrated, Advanced Sound Optimization

Enjoy balanced sond for any room. YPAO R.S.C. (Reflected
Sound Control) analyzes the acoustics of the room with the included YPAO
microphone to tune the system for the best sound in any room.

The calibration employs R.S.C. to correct early reflections
for theater-quality surround sound.

YPAO 3D provides automatic sound parameter optimization that
maximizes the 3D sound field of CINEMA DSP HD3 as well Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.

With 64-bit high-precision EQ calculations, this technology
produces the most natural room acoustics possible.


The CX-A5200 features two of the latest ESS SABRE PRO
Premier DACs (ES9026 PRO) delivering state-of-the-art 32-bit performance.

Further, the DACs also minimize noise levels and achieve an
exceptional signal-to-noise ratio.

Redesigned Power

In pursuit of dynamic expression and quality output, the
CX-A5200 employs a large, redesigned power transformer to maximize performance
and hone in on precision.

Deep and powerful sound is achieved with enhanced regulation
of power while a thick brass plate dampens unwanted vibrations.

Heavy-Duty Bottom

Stabilizing the chassis is the key to enhanced performance
and sound. The CX-A5200 achieves this by employing a thick bottom plate which
acts to steady and immobilize the entire structure and achieve optimal sound.

Balanced Connections
and High-Quality XLR Terminals

Electrical noise is an inherent issue with cabling due to
connection with other AV components, the connections between them and from
other sources of external noise.

To ensure that the CX-A5200 is not affected by such
distortion, it uses balanced connections that are highly noise resistant – the
same type as generally used in high-end professional audio equipment.

Even the RCA unbalanced connections use a ground sensing
transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission. Moreover, XLR
terminals allow for the use of long cables.

The CX-A5200 also allows a balanced audio input connection
from high-end source components such as CD players.

Designed for Dolby

Yamaha provides multiple placement patterns for presence
speakers that support Dolby Atmos, creating an immersive sound field that’s
ideal for any setup.

Any layout can be appropriately reproduced, including the
three-dimensional space of CINEMA DSP as well as Dolby Atmos.

Furthermore, YPAO R.S.C. fine tunes the listening
environment and takes full advantage of the detailed immersive sound technology
of Dolby Atmos.

MusicCast Multi-Room

MusicCast makes it easier than ever to share audio
throughout the home using your home Wi-Fi network.

The CX-A5200 works seamlessly with other MusicCast products
– including multi-room streaming amplifiers, sound bars, wireless speakers and
Hi-Fi gear ­– all controllable from the MusicCast app or from a third-party
control system such as Control4, RTI or ELAN.

MusicCast gives you access to your favorite streaming music
services and music libraries, plus it lets you stream sources connected to the
CX-A5200, including TV sound, CDs and vinyl records.

The CX-A5200 delivers unsurpassed flexibility for a truly
integrated home audio system.
