This Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080 review deals with the premium device that can deliver 150W per channel. The anti-resonance tech makes the device completely reliable and durable. The sound is natural and immersive despite the kind of entertainment content. AL tech analyzes and optimizes it to deliver a surround effect. The clutter-free setup is able to make a special sound environment quickly in the large or non-standard rooms and spaces.
The flagship model’s front panel is made of aluminum that is not only stylish but is functional as well. It defends the AV’s circuitry from the external impacts. There are the cross-members inside the construction to avoid vibrations even when the volume is extremely high.
The RX-A3080 has 3 Yamaha original DSP units, providing high speed and powerful audio signal.
The Yamaha newest graphical user interface has a high-res display with easy-to-understand and easy-to-use menus. Also, it includes a selectable status line that indicates input source, volume level, DSP mode, and audio format.
D.O.P.G. concept increases silence resolution over the entire audio range for abundant and expressive reproduction of even the purest and tiniest sounds.
AVENTAGE RX-A3080 decodes and delivers surround sound with realism due to Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and cinema DSP HD3 support without getting hot.
The device’s signal-to-noise ratio is high (120 DBs) due to the electronically separated right and left channels that allow achieving the open soundstage.
The amp is noted for its low noise and high resolution. The patented ESS SABRE PRO Premier DAC tech, as well as DAC on Pure Ground concept, reduce ground noise in order to avoid any sounds in the silent scenes. The most tender and softest sounds are clear and accurate.
The amp could be combined with the wireless speakers to add audio playback in up to 9 rooms. If to connect the AV with a front presence speaker, it is possible to use the Virtual Speaker tech for reproducing up to 11-channel sound. Still, in this case, it is necessary to waste some time to get all the channels for it because the menus aren’t straightforward./p>
3 HDMI terminals allow connecting and using several systems simultaneously – for example, TV and LCD projector. There are the phono input terminals in order to connect the turntable, so the fans of retro can enjoy vinyl./p>
The possibility to connect the external power amp helps enhance the sound that the true audiophiles must appreciate.
The setup is straightforward due to the user-friendly onboard menu or AV Controller app. The diversity of options for managing includes DSP modes, power, inputs, volume, etc. The app is available in 23 languages. It is compatible with both Androids (tablets and smartphones) and iOS devices. AS for the remote, it is still not so intuitive.
Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080 allows enjoying the full set of the sound – its types, tones, and shades. The device is “smart” enough to analyze the input signals for the best processing without any changing settings requirements. A solid well-made platform with different inputs and outputs makes the AV the long-lived and functional system. Besides, it provides the great video, especially on the OLED TVs. The connectivity is easy for all devices. It is even possible to connect 3 displays to enjoy 4K video content. AVENTAGE RX-A3080 has the premier build quality and the latest software.
