Yamaha Announces Aventage A30 Series AV Receivers
Yamaha Music has introduced its latest Aventage A30 Series of AV Receivers with 5 models - RX-A730, RX-A830, RX-A1030, RX-A2030, and RX-A3030.
Designed based on Yamaha's time-tested Total Purity Concept, fully discrete power amplifiers minimize distortion, while independent pure power supplies prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. Independent DAC power supplies also reduce noise and large heatsinks dissipate heat and suppress vibration.
The highlights of these new models are the refined circuit configurations and the use of high performance ESS DACs.
- ESS ES9006 Premier Audio DAC: RX-A1030/2030
- ESS ES9016 ultra-high performance 192kHz/32bit DAC: RX-A3030
Zone customization has been enhanced by HDMI Zone Switching flexibility of different HD audio/video sources in two different sources for RX-A1030. With Advanced HDMI Zone Switching in RX-A2030 and RX-A3030, the sources can be selected via HDMI, analog/digital, network, or USB. In addition, Zone 2 display can also view information such as song titles and artist names by using the Zone GUI.
The Aventage RX-A730 and RX-A830 are available now at S$1199 and S$1499 respectively, while RX-A1030, RX-A2030, and RX-A3030 will be available from October 2013.
