AVENTAGE Separate Components

AVENTAGE Separate Components represent the pinnacle in exhilarating home entertainment.

In pursuit of the ultimate in home cinema, Yamaha establishes a new benchmark in performance and innovation.

Introducing the CX-A5200 pre-amplifier and MX-A5200 power amplifier.

SURROUND:AI

The AI technology built into the DSP analyses the scene and then creates the optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the greatest impact.

This AI instantaneously analyses scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds and sound effects, and automatically optimises surround effect in real time.

The result is a compelling sense of expressive power beyond conventional sound field effects that deliver the most profound entertainment experience available today.

A New Generation in Sound. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Nothing captivates an audience quite like the grandeur of the big screen and the thrill of cinema surround sound.

Object-based audio brings this sense of immersion to breathtaking new heights through the use of overhead speakers and precise location of sounds not just around the listener, but on a 3D plane.

Together with Dolby and DTS, Yamaha brings this latest development in cinema surround sound into the home with astonishing realism and unsurpassed performance.

A New Dimension in Sound

In addition to conventional channel-based audio, it is possible to create a 3D space in which separate acoustic elements can move freely – giving a sensation of the motion of ‘objects’ above the viewer’s head that realises the filmmaker’s vision.

Improved CINEMA DSP HD3 features signal processing algorithms to heighten this sense of realism further. With high-performance processors, home theatre performance is maximised – accurately reproducing a new dimension of realism with a rich sense of presence unlike any system you’ve ever experienced.

Automatically Calibrated, Advanced Sound Optimisation

YPAO R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) analyses the acoustics of the room with the included YPAO microphone to automatically tune your system for the best sound in your room.

The calibration employs R.S.C. to correct early reflections for studio-quality surround sound.

YPAO 3D provides automatic sound parameter optimisation that maximises the 3D sound field of CINEMA DSP HD3 as well Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.

64-bit high-precision EQ calculation achieves the most natural room acoustics possible.

Professional-grade ESS DACs

The CX-A5200 features 2 of the latest ESS SABRE PRO Premier DAC (ES9026 PRO) delivering state-of-the-art 32-bit performance.

Further, the DAC also minimises noise levels and achieves an exceptional signal-to-noise ratio.

Redesigned Power Transformer

In pursuit of dynamic expression, the CX-A5200 employs a large, redesigned power transformer to maximise the performance of the new ESS DAC.

Deep and powerful sound is achieved with enhanced regulation of power while a thick brass plate dampens unwanted vibrations from the transformer on surrounding circuitry.

Heavy-duty Bottom Plate

Stabilising the chassis is the key to enhanced performance and deep, sinking sound. The CX-A5200 achieves this by employing a thick bottom plate which acts to steady the entire structure and achieve optimal sound.

Balanced Connections and High-quality XLR Terminals

Electrical noise is an inherent issue with cabling due to connection with other AV components, the connections between them and from other sources of external noise.

To ensure that the CX-A5200 is not affected by this distortion, it uses balanced connections that are highly noise resistant – the same type as generally used in professional audio equipment.

Even the RCA unbalanced connection uses a ground sensing transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission.

XLR terminals allow for the use of long cables.

The CX-A5200 also allows balanced audio input connection to high-end source components such as CD players.

Designed for Dolby Atmos

Yamaha provides multiple placement patterns for presence speakers that support Dolby Atmos – creating a sound field that’s ideal for your setup.

Any layout can be appropriately reproduced, including the three-dimensional space of CINEMA DSP as well as Dolby Atmos.

Furthermore YPAO R.S.C. optimises the listening environment and takes full advantage of the detailed spatial localisation capability of Dolby Atmos.

MusicCast

Welcome to a new frontier in multi-room audio.

MusicCast makes it easier than ever to share audio throughout the home.

The CX-A5200 unlocks a range of entertainment options when connected to the MusicCast system. For example, CDs, TV sound and even vinyl records are able to be streamed wirelessly to other MusicCast models using the intuitive app interface.

Supporting high-resolution audio, MusicCast fills every room with high-quality sound from any source. By acting as a hub, the CX-A5200 delivers unsurpassed flexibility for a truly integrated home audio system.

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 15 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
