YAMAHA AVENTAGE CX-A5200 11 CHANNEL DTS:X DOLBY ATMOS AV PROCESSOR / MX-A5200 11 CHANNEL POWER AMPLIFIER COMBO
YAMAHA AVENTAGE CX-A5200 11 CHANNEL DTS:X DOLBY ATMOS AV PROCESSOR
Experience the future of home cinema with the 11.2-channel CX-A5200 AVENTAGE pre-amplifier. Yamaha’s renowned CINEMA DSP HD3 combined with Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™ deliver an exhilarating home cinema experience.
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.
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.
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.
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.
MX-A5200 11 CHANNEL POWER AMPLIFIER
Experience the ultimate in home theatre performance and versatility with the MX-A5200 AVENTAGE power amplifier. The 11-channel system exemplifies the pursuit for purity of sound and unsurpassed flexibility.
Power and Presence
The MX-A5200 offers 11 x discrete channels of amplification with flexible configuration options - delivering an impressive combination of power and quality.
Enjoy the flexibility of a multi-zone system or immerse yourself in exhilarating surround sound using any combination of 11-channels
Ultimate Performance with BTL
To further enhance power capacity, the MX-A5200 supports Bridge Tied Load (BTL) configuration for the front 2 channels. This allows for a major improvement to the front speaker performance.
As part of its uncompromising design, the MX-A5200 boasts a specially designed chassis to maximise rigidity and eliminate the effects of vibration.
The MX-A5200 employs a double bottom construction consisting of vibration control plates made of 1.6 mm steel - echoing that of the legendary Z11 AV receiver.
In order to support the heavy heat sinks and other components, a left-right independent construction strengthened by a rigid-frame structure is utilised. The bottom frame reduces the transmission of vibration produced by the large power supply transformer and heat sinks.
The MX-A5200 also incorporates a heavy insulator that blocks external vibration.
Precisely planned, circuit-routed and designed with a symmetrical power amplifier layout, the MX-A5200 achieves ideal channel separation with left and right sides being both physically and electrically isolated.
The design also greatly improves signal-to-noise ratio and achieves an expansive sound stage.
The MX-A5200 utilises a high-output, large toroidal transformer combined with 2 specially developed high-capacity block capacitors to deliver massive power with generous headroom.
Also, energy loss is minimised and ensures effortless reproduction of sound sources.
The rear of the MX-A52000 features high-quality, gold-plated terminals that are compatible with Y plugs (spade connectors) for optimal connections with speakers.
Balanced XLR Connections
When connecting AV components, electrical noise can be introduced - a result of the connections between them and also from other sources of external noise.
To combat this inherent issue, the MX-A5200 utilizes balanced connections for all 11-channels - the same type found in professional audio applications.
Additionally, the alternative RCA unbalanced connection uses a ground sensing transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission.
