Yamaha AVENTAGE AV Receiver Models Compared

Yamaha Aventage Av Receiver Models Compared - Front Panel Display Of An Av Receiver

Updated:

If you are looking for the best Yamaha AV receiver, then you need to be checking out their AVENTAGE range.

This series of receivers, preamplifiers and power amplifiers are designed to sound great. Engineered with top-quality components and designed with performance in mind.

They feature all the latest audio and video technologies that you would expect from a modern AV receiver.

The problem is, every year Yamaha release several different AVENTAGE AV receiver models.

So, the tricky part can be understanding the differences between them. And, what has changed between last year and this year’s model.

To help in your search, I’ve compiled a list of each AVENTAGE receiver, and selected the most important features. I’ve also made it clear the year each model was released.

To get a better idea of the complete range of Yamaha AV receivers available, take a look at this summary:

  • AVENTAGE Series: top-of-the-range models with the latest features and highest quality components and engineering.
  • RX-V Series: mid-range with many of the features expected in a modern AV receiver.
  • TSR Series: mid-range with high-end audio converters for better audio performance.
  • RX-S Series: slim and compact receivers for those with less space.

As I’ve said, on this page I will be comparing the AVENTAGE series. You can also take a look at guides to the Yamaha RX-V AV receiver series and the Yamaha RX-S and TSR series of receivers.

The models listed below are the USA releases. You may find that the models around the world may vary slightly, but they will usually be similar.

I have also included the MSRP – Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price. You will often find retailers selling below this price, but it a useful guide as to the quality of each AV receiver.

For the sake of completeness, I’ve also included the AVENTAGE preamplifier and power amplifier models. These aren’t integrated AV receivers, and need to be paired together before you can use them.

Don’t forget to take a look at my AV receiver buying guide if you want to understand a little more about what all the features are for.

About Home Cinema Guide

Paul started the Home Cinema Guide to help less-experienced users get the most out of today's audio-visual technology. He has worked as a sound, lighting and audio-visual engineer for around 20 years. At home, he has spent more time than is probably healthy installing, configuring, testing, de-rigging, fixing, tweaking, re-installing again (and sometimes using) various pieces of hi-fi and home cinema equipment.
