This Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080 review deals with the premium device that is able to deliver 150W per channel. It is remarkable for its dynamic and accurate sound. The anti-resonance tech makes the device completely reliable and durable. The sound is natural and immersive despite the kind of the 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 back panel is a little bit crowded. Some indicators are small printed and sometimes it is not easy to see where to connect without the additional lighting.
Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080 specs are designed to make the AV completely high-end.
The impeccable performance is guaranteed due to the high-quality parts.
Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and cinema DSP HD3 support provide the highest level of the sound realism and the theatre sound effects. 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 even if to connect the 7-channel system. However, in this case, it is necessary to waste some time to get all the channels for it because the menus aren’t straightforward.
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.
The possibility to connect the external power amp helps enhance the sound that the true audiophiles must appreciate.
The device is easy to set up via intuitive on-board 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.
