Yamaha AVENTAGE®: Premium design and performance
Yamaha designed their AVENTAGE series of receivers from the ground up with sound quality as the top priority. They paid attention to the little details that add up to better performance — from a solidly built double-bottomed chassis, to separate power supplies for digital and analog circuitry. And to top it off, AVENTAGE receivers are backed by a three-year warranty.
The RX-A1020 boasts other nice engineering touches like a symmetrical amplifier layout with a center-mounted transformer to reduce the signal path. And dual heat sinks keep the receiver cooler for greater noise-reduction and efficiency.
AirPlay® moves your iTunes® library front and center
Built-in Apple AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream music from your iTunes collection directly to your Yamaha receiver, either from a networked computer or right from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®. Not only do you get a fast and convenient way to listen to your favorites, but anyone in your home can stream from their player to share their latest find. AirPlay requires a wireless home network and a wired connection between the receiver and network.
Free remote app for Apple® and Android™
The free Yamaha A/V Controller app gives you easy touchscreen control over the RX-A1020 with your smartphone or tablet.
A network connection to this receiver also lets you use your Apple or Android device as a Wi-Fi remote. Just download the free Yamaha A/V Controller app to your smartphone or tablet, and you can use the intuitive touchscreen interface to control the receiver.
Enjoy HD Radio™ and your record collection
The RX-A1020 gives you access to music sources that most receivers don't. It has a built-in HD Radio tuner so you can enjoy digital high-definition programs from your favorite area HD stations. With 40 memory presets, there's plenty of space to save regular and multi-cast stations that you just can't get without this special tuner. Plus, you can enjoy the vinyl resurgence and your record collection by connecting a turntable for hours of warm-sounding analog music.
Your broadband network delivers a vast variety of entertainment options
The RX-A1020's Ethernet port opens the door to a world of fresh, new listening options. Thousands of Internet radio stations from every corner of the world are at your fingertips. And music files streamed from your networked PC are just a touch away. The possibilities are endless.
Flexible connecting options to meet your needs
This seven-channel receiver gives you two channels that can be used for back surround channels. So when your action movie includes a sneak attack from the rear, you'll hear it coming. And when you're enjoying that favorite live concert CD the rear soundstage makes it really come alive.
If you stick with just five speakers in your home theater, there are other choices available. The back surround channels can be reassigned to send extra power to bi-ampable front speakers. You'll enjoy better clarity and dynamic range, perhaps as never before. Or if you'd simply like to hear music in another room, those extra powered outputs can be used for a pair of speakers in your favorite lounge or work area, entertaining you while others enjoy the movie in your living room.
Set up like a pro in a fraction of the time
Yamaha's auto-calibration system provides easy, precise home theater setup. Plug in the included microphone and place it in your favorite seat. The RX-A1020 quickly analyzes the size, distance, and frequency response of every speaker in your system, adjusting the settings for each one individually. In minutes, your system is fine-tuned for optimum performance with your specific speakers and room.
Today's feature-packed home theater receivers do so much that you can find yourself lost in a maze of on-screen menus. The RX-A1020 lets you sidestep the confusion: Four "SCENE" buttons in the center of the front panel give you easy one-touch access to common choices like watching a Blu-ray movie or listening to a CD. Just hit a button and the receiver switches to the correct input and settings. And the 'A1020 adds eight additional SCENE selections via the graphic user interface.
