A New Frontier in Sound.

Discover the thrill of the most advanced cinematic surround sound in the home. Breakthrough Surround:AI technology analyses the scene of the entertainment content and optimises the surround effect in real time while you watch

The Heart of the Smart Home.

State-of-the-art configuration options and unparalleled versatility satisfy the most demanding whole-of-home applications.

Intuitively Simple to Use.

Simple and straightforward operation, whether using specially designed compatible apps, intuitive on-board menu, or in conjunction with Amazon Alexa voice control devices.

Surround:AI

The AI technology built into the DSP analyses the scene of the entertainment content and then creates the optimal surround effect to reproduce it with the greatest effect. This AI instantaneously analyses scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds and sound effects, and automatically optimises the surround effect in real time, just as if a Yamaha sound engineer tunes the best sound specifically for you. This creates a compelling sense of realism with expressive power beyond conventional sound field effects, giving you the most profound entertainment experience possible.

    Dolby Atmos® and DTS-X™ Playback with CINEMA DSP HD3

    This AV receiver supports Dolby Atmos and DTS-X playback with CINEMA DSP HD3, taking the surround sound experience to new heights. The revamped CINEMA DSP HD3 features new signal processing algorithms and three sets of high performance processors. This maximises theatre sound effects, accurately reproducing a new dimension of realism for a sound field with a rich sense of presence and no feeling of boundaries. You will experience a realistic cinema sound field with the sense of truly being immersed in the movie scene.

      For Sound Purity

      Highly Rigid Construction

      The AVENTAGE model RX-A3080 features a sleek, clean design, with an elegant aluminium front panel. Even more importantly, the unit is exceptionally sturdy, with an interior reinforced with cross members in an H-shape. It also features the Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge, which is a fifth foot in the centre of the unit that dampens vibrations from the power transformer and elsewhere. Thanks to these, installation stability is improved and chassis resonance is dispersed, effectively eliminating external vibration, maintaining the highest audio quality.

      Optimum Performance

      High Quality Parts

      Every single part in an AV receiver affects the sound quality. For AVENTAGE models, extra time is taken to carefully select the most exacting, high-quality parts — including a large-capacity power amplifier unit with damping heat sink, a custom large power transformer, high-performance DSP devices, and so on — in order to achieve the highest performance possible. Moreover, sound technicians employ rigorous testing processes to optimally “tune” the receiver’s sound.

      ESS SABRE PRO Premier DAC™ ES9026PRO

      Our flagship RX-A3080 model features ESS’s state of the art 32-bit SABRE PRO Premier DAC ES9026PRO. ESS’s patented 32-bit Hyper Stream, Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) compensation function works to minimise noise levels. In combination with the Yamaha original D.O.P.G. (DAC On Pure Ground) concept, which eliminates the potential difference between audio circuit stages to reduce ground noise, it dramatically enhances silence and resolution over the entire audio range for rich and expressive reproduction of even the most delicate sounds.

        YPAO™ - R.S.C. (with 3D, Multi-Point Measurement and 64-bit High Precision EQ)

        YPAO-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) analyses the room acoustics with the included YPAO microphone to tune your system for the best sound in your unique room. It 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 effectiveness of CINEMA DSP HD3 as well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. 64-bit high precision EQ calculation achieves the most natural room acoustics possible.

          XLR Input Terminal

          The RX-A3080 comes equipped with XLR balanced audio input terminal that have an outstanding reputation in the world of professional audio and are highly sensitive to noise in the mix. In combination with a Blu-ray Disc™ player such as our BD-A1060, or CD player such as our CD-S3000 / S2100 equipped with balanced output terminal, this enables high-quality signal transmission with reduced degradation of sound quality due to external noise.

            The Heart of the Smart Home.

            Wireless Surround Speakers

            Streaming Services

            * Music streaming service availability varies by region.

              Virtual Speaker Technology

              The RX-A3080 is equipped with three Yamaha original high performance DSP devices, achieving high speed and large capacity audio signal processing. As a result, CINEMA DSP HD3 playback can reproduce up to 11-channel sound — on even a 7-channel system. The total reproduction of spatial data, including the vertical axis, helps create an overwhelmingly realistic sound field.

              * Requires connection to a front presence speaker. Dolby Atmos and DTS: X signals cannot be used with these virtual features.

                Three HDMI Outputs

                Since the RX-A3080 has three HDMI output terminals, simultaneous connection to the TV, LCD projector and other devices, is possible. Which means, for example, that you can use your TV as usual but use the projector for your favourite movies and special programming, or have the same main room content shown in other rooms as well — easily and without having to change any connections. Naturally, the built-in HDMI functionality is of the latest specifications, corresponding also to HDR (Dolby Vision Compatible, Hybrid Log-Gamma), 4K / 60p passthrough, 4K upscaling, and so on.

                  Phono Input

                  This AV receiver provides phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection.

                    11.2-channel Pre-outs

                    You can add an external power amplifier (pre-main amplifier) to this AV receiver to improve and enhance the sound of your speakers. For example, using a power amplifier to drive the important front channel in home theatre gives you the added flexibility of building a system with an emphasis on sound quality

                      DAB/DAB+ Tuner

                      Digital Audio Broadcasting capability, with DAB and the enhanced DAB+, offers a large selection of radio stations with high sound quality. Other benefits include automatic selection of available stations from a convenient list, and helpful information display, including station name and music genre.

                      * Availability of DAB / DAB+ tuner function varies by region.

                        Intuitively Simple to Use.

                        Alexa on MusicCast

                        “Alexa, ask MusicCast to play Favourite 1 in the Kitchen.” With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. The RX-A3080 name offers full compatibility with Amazon’s range of voice control devices. Welcome to the smart home.

                        * Availability of voice command control via Amazon Alexa varies by region.

                          AV Controller App

                          This easy-to-use app lets you conveniently and ‘smartly’ control your AV receiver’s power, volume, input selections, DSP modes — and much, much more — from an iOS or Android™ device. You can also use as many as 23 different languages and customise the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.

                            Advanced Graphical User Interface

                            The latest graphical user interface from Yamaha has a high-resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and includes a selectable status bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode and audio format. The GUI provides a choice of eight languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.

                              Advanced HDMI Zone Switching

                              You can transmit the video or audio content (not only HDMI input, but also other audio sources, such as digital or analogue audio, network content and FM/DAB radio) to a TV or home theater system in another room (Zone 2/4). This lets you enjoy viewing and listening to the same main room content (where the AV receiver is installed), or even different content. An on-screen graphical user interface makes it easy to browse and select content from the second zone no matter what is being played in the main zone.

                                Even Higher Quality Sound

                                Bi-amp Connection

                                This AV receiver features bi-amping capability, driving the treble and bass ranges of the front speakers (L, R) with independent amplifiers, making it possible to enjoy even higher quality sound from the front channels — an important consideration in home theatre setups.

                                Brilliant and Lively

                                Music Enhancer

                                The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimised for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, energetic sound quality during wireless playback.

                                Install with Ease

                                AV Setup Guide

                                This special app assists you with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices. Additionally, it guides you through various settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amplifier assignments.

                                Save Energy by 20%

                                Eco Mode

                                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!

                                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.
