I had an opportunity to test a great solution from Yamaha and this Yamaha RX-A780 review should help other people understand if this model meets their requirements. It is a perfect solution for those, who need a reliable solution with modern features.
It has two large knobs, an LCD display (it provides you with very basic information), and many additional buttons (to control zones, change presets, etc.). It also has some additional ports (phones, USB, setup mic, Aux audio). The ports are located on the back panel, everything is labeled so you will have no troubles connecting everything up. The remote controller is very ergonomic, it has all the buttons you may need, and the buttons are quite big.
It supports the 4K video standard with HDR10 and HLG. This receiver supports the 7.2 channel setup, 5.2.2 DTS:X and Cinema DSP 3D. This solution also supports Dolby Atmos. This receiver supports several zones. This model has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules that allow you access various online services, like Pandora, TIDAL, Napster, etc. It supports AirPlay technology. You can also stream content using the NAS feature. It supports MusicCast wireless speakers and the Amazon Alexa technology.
This receiver is built using high-performance components, so you can watch 4K 60p videos without experiencing any lagging or stuttering. The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth components can establish a connection very fast and it will be stable enough to assure lag-free content streaming. The total power output is 700 W.
Yamaha uses the YPAO technology for audio processing. The R.S.C. (reflect sound control) module analyzes the reflected sound and configures speakers to avoid any echoing. Customers claim that it is very precise. This receiver features a Burr-Brown 384 kHz 32-bit DAC converter providing you with clear audio.
Apart from wireless interfaces, it has 5 in and 2 out HDMI ports, 2 subwoofer outputs, 5 AV inputs, phones, and other ports. It has a phono input so you can connect a turntable. All ports are built well, so you will not get any noise (make sure you use high-quality cables).
It is easy to install and setup. The menu is user-friendly. The audio calibration is completely automatic. The manufacturer provides the microphone required for the calibration.
The Yamaha RX-A780 specs prove that it is a high-performance solution for people who want to get a modern receiver that has many features. It would be a perfect option for people who look for a reliable, powerful receiver.
