The RX-A860 marks the first 'serious' step up in audio visual performance from the very adaptable new RX-A660, and despite the later ranges strengths - the RX-A860 is a truly great 7 channel amplifier that any discerning home cinema installer would embrace.

It also features High Resolution audio playback support, 4K Ultra HD full support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® Built-in, and an audiophile design for detailed audio reproduction. The AVENTAGE line of high-performance AV receivers is 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. Internally like all AVENTAGE receivers - it boasts Yamaha's A.R.T (Anti-Resonance Technology) and their H-shaped cross frame design that boosts mechanical strength, by adopting aluminium side panels that increase the stiffness of the housing, and by a three-ply structure with independent top cover and side panels. As a result, every 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-A860 also is not shy in delivering the 'beans' as a result of this advanced power amplifier design and circuitry, with 160 watts being able to be driven per channel into demanding 4 ohm loads, or an impressive and effortless 100 watts per channel into 8 ohm loads. This means that whatever the source material the AVENTAGE design ensures the best, most dynamic delivery and impressive sound-stage you are likely to hear from a 'humble' AV Receiver. Each component within the RX-A860 has been chosen because of it's quality - with high grade capacitors and transformers internally. This level of attention to details is also prevalent with the RX-A860's D to A processing, as the latest high performance Burr Brown direct path DA Converters for the best possible performance. Yet externally the build quality is evident too with high quality front mounted inputs all woven into an exemplary aluminium fascia, and dynamic high contrast LED display. The RX-A860 is an AV Receiver for the new Ultra HD generation (both audio and video!), as the new AVENTAGE AVR boasts support for the latest HDMI revision and will also support 4K Ultra HD pass-through and up-scaling. This AV receiver completely supports with the latest HDMI® standards. Thanks to transmission of 4K video at 60 frames per second pass-through, you can fully enjoy the high definition video quality of 4K without degradation. It also adheres to the HDCP2.2 copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission. It also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) Video which provide enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. Furthermore it supports wider colour gamut of BT.2020 pass-through. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats and technology. Being a network AVR it enables seamless connectivity and control with mobile devices, with AirPlay and also Bluetooth®. Plus it can be beautifully and intuitively controlled via Yamaha's excellent AV Controller App for Andorid and iOS devices. Finally - being a fully DLNA compliant product it can stream music from computers on your LAN or NAS drive, and if you prefer streaming service support it also features strong streaming service features, as it handles Napster®, Spotify® and also vTuner®. All streaming sources can be improved not only by using High-resolution Music Enhancer, but also through it's class leading DAC's and adaptable DSP's. As with all AVR's at this price-point it also benefits from having a directly amplified zone 2 if required, which is perfect for ancillary areas where music is still needing to be enjoyed. For installers, it has both RS232 and network control for integration with most control systems. Plus, it has Yamaha's extremely useful web set up and back up utility, which enables you to save and load the system set up for customers on initial installation, or remotely also - making it a must for the best installations.
