Feed your speakers the good stuff
Powering 11 speakers in a home theater is one thing. Making them all sound exquisite is quite another. That's why Yamaha left no detail unattended in designing the MX-A5000 power amplifier. Rated at a hefty 150 watts per channel in stereo mode, there's plenty of clean power to go around to drive an earth-shattering 11.2-channel surround sound system.
XLR inputs with 5-channel bi-amping
Connect your preamp to this powerhouse with either unbalanced RCA cables or pro-quality balanced XLR cables. XLR connections provide an ultra low-noise signal, so all those details in your favorite songs or movie soundtracks come through clearly. If you have a 5-channel home theater with biamp-capable speakers, you can obtain greater transparency and detail through bi-amping all five speakers.
More than just raw power
A high quality power amp is all about...you guessed it: power. The MX-A5000 is built around a massive toroidal power transformer, offering up the steady stream of clean power any good amp relies upon to drive your speakers to sonic heights.
Independent symmetrical construction separates the left from the right channel circuitry, to preserve a clean signal path that improves the signal-to-noise ratio as well as widens the soundstage for exceptional 2-channel listening. The rigid chassis features a thick double bottom with steel vibration-control plates to keep this amp rock solid even during high output levels. And the current feedback design is highly responsive to changes in volume, so it can accurately keep up with explosive movie soundtracks or highly dynamic music. Weighing in at 56 pounds, you can be sure Yamaha didn't take any shortcuts when designing this heavyweight amp.
