Welcome to a review of Yamaha’s Aventage AV Receiver 2013 Line up – RX-A830, 7.2 CH Home Theater Receiver.The RX-A830 receiver represents the top of the line of Yamaha’s AVENTAGE 2013 line up. With 7.2 channels and 100 W per discrete channel, the RX-A830 has been noted as no slouch. It features eight HDMI inputs and two outputs with 3D, ARC (Audio Return Channel), and standby pass-through. The second HDMI output can output to Zone B.
Yamaha has noted that the AVENTAGE line of high-performance AV receivers are 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, this 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.
The RX-A830 receiver’s HDMI input/output supports Ultra HD (4K) video image pass-through. It also can perform Ultra HD (4K) up scaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high-def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats. Plus you will receive an easy to use remote control, part number ZF270300, which will help you create the sound and experience you are seeking.
Consumers are saying that the RX-A830 is easy to set up and operate, even with all the different options. Four SCENE buttons are configurable and can be used to power on the unit and select an input source by pressing a single button. However, it has been noted, that while listening to audio-only input sources (ex: tuner, Internet radio, iPod/USB, etc.) and using the TV to display info, there is no screen saver function. Overall this receiver is receiving great reviews for being a full feature receiver with an attractive price tag.
