Yamaha RX-V6A: AV Receiver for a modern home theater

The Yamaha RX-V6A AV receiver is the optimal choice for equipping modern home theaters in terms of quality and price. The main feature of this AV receiver compared to younger models in the series is the 7.2 configuration and support for the new Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound formats.

Thus, this model will allow you to create a home theater in which the sound will surround the audience from all sides, including from above. In addition, the RX-V6A with the next firmware will add the ability to work with Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization.


The Yamaha RX-V6A has seven HDMI inputs and one output that support 4K Ultra HD with all the extras of Dolby Vision and HLG, as well as 8K on three of the seven inputs. The device is also equipped with analog and digital inputs, which will allow you to create an AV system based on it with a wide variety of signal sources.

The device uses amplifiers based on discrete elements, characterized by a high output current and a wide dynamic range, as well as high-quality DACs. For convenient setup of multi-channel sound, taking into account the parameters of the listening room and acoustics, the Yamaha RX-V6A uses a proprietary YPAO auto-calibration scheme. To connect all speakers, the device is equipped with reliable screw terminals, conveniently located in the middle part of the rear panel.


The Yamaha RX-V6A AV receiver is equipped with MusicCast technology, which allows you to connect compatible wireless speakers to it (used as rear speakers in a home theater or in additional zones of a multiroom system), as well as use local media servers or popular on-line resources to listen to music.

The Yamaha RX-V6A also has a USB input for storage devices with music files and Bluetooth. The device supports playback of content in Lossless and High Resolution formats, including DSD 11.2 MHz. To directly connect iOS devices, you can use AirPlay 2 technology. Unlike the younger model, the Yamaha RX-V6A has a phono input.

The Yamaha RX-V6A AV receiver provides the ability to connect using a bi-amping scheme, in which the high and low frequency bands of the left and right front speaker systems are amplified by independent amplifiers, thereby improving the sound quality of the front channels – an important advantage for a home theater.

The Zone B output provides 2-channel audio in another room. The presence of this output allows you to transmit a 2-channel audio signal to another room. This leaves 7 output channels for the main zone. This means that you can listen to stereo sound in the second room. In this case, audio content from the same source will be played in both zones (simultaneous use of two signal sources is not possible).

The Yamaha RX-V6A AV receiver also includes HDMI 2.1 gaming capabilities. These are Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Quick Frame Transfer (QFT) and Quick Media Switching (QMS). It is expected that they will be especially in demand with the next generation of gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft.

Ease of control of the Yamaha RX-V6A is ensured by a well-designed remote control, as well as an intuitive mobile application. The AV receiver has rich and detailed sound with a pleasant tonal balance, and will work consistently with most models of popular acoustics.
