Yamaha Unveils Two New 8K AV Receivers With A Host Of Advanced Features

These days the world of video and TV is moving at a fast pace. We now have access to a huge amount of diverse content with more special effects and groundbreaking sound. We can already enjoy high-res 4K content and soon more of us will be experiencing 8K images. To keep up with all these developments, Yamaha is launching two new AV receivers with the latest features for making home theaters even more exciting.

Yamaha says it has redesigned the two new receivers from the ground up. The new RX-V line supports the latest trends and specifications for home entertainment, setups, including gaming use. The new features include support for 8K 60Hz, HDMI 2.1 and HDR10+ to handle the latest technology.

The RX-V line now has two new models – the RX-V4A and RX-V6A – and they offer 5- and 7-channels, respectively. Whether you already subscribe to 4K content or want a receiver that’s ready for the 8K content to come, both new models are built to support and pass through the highest resolution content available. Yamaha claims that no other AV receiver on the market offers as many 8K HDMI inputs as these new models, with three on the RX-V6A (7 inputs total) and all four inputs on the RX-V4A.

Advances to the RX-V lineup in 2020 begin with a new look, inside and out, with a simplified, modern design and a new, high-resolution LCD and jog dial with touch-sensitive buttons. As well as the all-new look, the receivers include HDMI 2.1 compatibility for faster, smoother and uninterrupted images and gameplay with auto low latency mode (ALLM), variable refresh rates (VRR), quick frame transport (QFT) as well as quick media switching (QMS). These features will be welcomed by those waiting for the latest gaming platforms arriving this fall. And to support the use of powered HDMI cables for anyone who needs longer wiring, Yamaha has boosted the power supply from HDMI outputs to 300mA.
