AVENTAGE AV Receivers: Designed to Deliver the Highest Levels of Audio Performance
The AVENTAGE line of high-performance AV receivers is based on the audio design concept of providing a massive, full-bodied sound for movie sound effects and the accurate reproduction of music sources. By expertly harmonizing traditional and advanced technologies, every factor that affects sound quality, from materials and parts to construction, layout, vibration damping (unique foot) and “fine-tuning” the sound, is handled with no other thought than to achieve the best possible audio quality. As a result, every AVENTAGE model has the ability to reproduce the most subtle details of high-definition sound, so that listeners can enjoy a truly high-class sound studio experience at home.

Noise Resistant, Highly Reliable Balanced Connections and High Quality XLR Terminals for Long Subwoofer Cables
Electrical noise may be generated from connections with other AV components, including the connections between them as well as from external noise sources. To ensure that the CX-A5100 is not affected by this distortion, it uses balanced connections that are highly noise resistant t the same type generally used in pro audio equipment. Even the unbalanced RCA connection uses a ground-sensing transmission method that achieves a simple and balanced transmission. When each channel is used independently, the impact of noise flowing between the preamp and power-amp is removed, minimizing sound quality deterioration due to the connection. XLR terminals allow for the use of long cables that may be needed to connect a subwoofer. The CX-A5100 also has a balanced audio input connection to high-grade source components such as CD players.

Sound Tuning Achieved with High Quality Parts for Optimum Performance
Every single part in an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For AVENTAGE models, extra time is taken to find (or develop) the exact parts needed to achieve the highest performance possible. Sound technicians go through a testing process to, in effect, “tune” the receiver’s sound.

High Density Presence and Richly Detailed Sound Ensured by High Quality Parts and Design
All channels use ultra-high performance ESS ES9016 DACs, which provide 192 kHz / 32-bit processing with a superior SN ratio and high dynamic range, ensuring faithful reproduction from Blu-ray Discs and other players, as well as from high-resolution source inputs over the network. Matched to the design of the DAC circuitry, which achieves stable ground potential (DAC on Pure Ground), they provide high-precision D/A conversion. A new Volume IC realizes low noise and superior sound orientation and a superior low-jitter clock circuit is used for clear and vivid network audio. In addition, the internal design separates the power supplies to the analog circuit boards, eliminating high frequency noise interference from the digital circuitry. The shielded power supplies restrict noise radiation and the large power transformer minimizes vibration.

Specially Designed High Rigidity Chassis Eliminates the Effects of Vibration for Greater Sound Purity
As part of this preamp processors no compromise design, Yamaha created an advanced chassis with strong rigidity. Chassis stiffness is enhanced by a three-ply structure that incorporates an independent top cover, aluminum side panels and an H-shaped cross frame. The ART (Anti-Resonance Technology) Wedge in the center of the bottom cover acts as an additional vibration countermeasure for the internal circuits and delicate parts.

Aluminum Front Panel Offers Visual and Aural Benefits
All of the AVENTAGE components feature the same sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminum front panel and silky touch volume/selector knobs. The aluminum front panel is used to effectively shield sensitive circuitry from external noise and electronic radiation generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors and so on. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments.

Featuring the Absolute Latest Technologies, the 11.2-channel Preamp That Brings You New Dimensions in Sound Reproduction
The CX-A5100 is the flagship AV preamp from Yamaha featuring the latest versions of 3D surround formats, advanced network functions such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® compatibility and full 4K support with HDCP 2.2 compatible HDMI. In combination with the MX-A5000 power amplifier, you can enjoy a premier 3D sound field with CINEMA DSP HD3 in a 11.2-channel speaker configuration or a 7.1.4-channel configuration with the newest surround sound formats found in movie theaters worldwide — in your own home.

YPAO™ - R.S.C. with 3D, Multipoint and Angle Measurement
During the automatic room calibration process, YPAO – R.S.C. with 3D, multipoint and angle measurement analyzes the room acoustics and performs speaker angle measurements. After this, YPAO calibrates all of the audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of the listening positions in the theater. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality surround sound playback. Additionally, it includes DSP Effect Normalization, which varies with each CINEMA DSP program and adjusts the room acoustics according to the reflected sounds of that CINEMA DSP program.

YPAO™ Volume to Ensure Natural Sounds Even at Low Volume
Human ears have less sensitivity to high and low frequencies, especially at lower volumes. YPAO Volume applies loudness EQ correction to automatically adjust high and low frequency levels as the volume changes. Using the YPAO measurement results, EQ correction is optimized to your system settings and listening environment.

True Sense of Realism Produced by the Next-Generation CINEMA DSP HD3, Compatible With All the Latest Formats
The CX-A5100 supports the latest surround sound playback formats such as Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™. In addition to conventional channel-based audio, it is possible to create a 3D space in which separate acoustic elements can move freely, giving a sensation of the motion of “objects” above the viewers head that fully realizes the filmmaker’s intentions. What’s more, the revamped CINEMA DSP HD3 features newly developed signal processing algorithms to maximize the theater’s sound effect, accurately reproducing a new dimension of realism with a rich sense of presence unlike any system you’ve ever experienced. By supplementing the limited number of speakers in a home system, CINEMA DSP creates the effect of a movie theater’s size with a large number of speakers. Experience a realistic cinema sound field and truly become immersed in the moment of your favorite movie scene.

33 DSP Programs, Including 10 Introduced in the Flagship RX-Z11 Receiver

It is now possible to use the AV Controller App to adjust the DSP parameters in a basic or advanced mode to match the mood of your favorite movie or music album.

Gapless Playback Compatibility Allows Play without Interruption
Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way it was meant to be heard.

USB Digital Connection for iPod® and iPhone® on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod® and iPhone®, which also charges the iOS device when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod and iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal-loss or interference. You get to enjoy the best possible sound quality.
