Dolby Atmos®

Enter a new world of sound with Dolby Atmos®. This latest surround format transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with captivating, multidimensional sound that fills your room with richness and depth. The combination of Dolby Atmos® with Yamaha AV results in sound that makes you feel as if you're right in the middle of the story unfolding on screen.

Anti Resonance Technology

The Anti Resonance Technology Wedge is a fifth foot that is positioned underneath the center of the unit. This technology dampens vibrations that are commonly caused by power transformers, power transistors and heatsinks, as well as possible vibrations from the speaker. By removing the possibility of unwanted vibrations, the CXA5100 ensures that sound quality is not affected.

Visual and Aural Benefits

All of the Aventage AV models feature the same sleek, clean design with an elegant aluminium front panel and touch volume/selector knobs. The aluminium front panel is used to effectively shield sensitive circuitry from external noise and electronic radiation that's typically generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting and video monitors. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments.

4K Pass-Through with HDCP2.2

This AV receiver boasts advanced HDMI features such as 6 inputs and pass-through of 4K Ultra HD, letting you enjoy the high-definition video quality of 4K without degradation, while also adhering to the HDCP2.2 copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission.

DSP Parameter Adjustment

The CXA5100 is equipped with a variety of sound programmes that utilise Yamaha's original DSP technology. This technology allows you to create sound fields similar to actual movie theatres or concert halls in your desired listening space. All these functions can be controlled to suit your preference from within the AV Controller app, matching the DSP parameters to the type of music/movie or the mood you want to achieve.

AV Controller App

Yamaha's AV Controller app is downloadable from iTunes and Google Play, and allows you to control everything from power and volume to input selections and DSP modes. Designed to be compatible with smartphones and tablets, this app offers a convenient and flexible way to control your AV receiver. Additionally, the AV Controller app is available in a wide range of languages and features a fully customisable interface.
