The latest flagship multi-channel home cinema receiver from Yamaha has arrived, the new RXA 3080. This 11 speaker channel, Atmos / DTS:X enabled AV amplifier will up convert via HDMI to 4K and analogue video up to 1080p.
The digital signal processor is what really sets this apart from the previous generation: Very clever electronics can create phantom front and rear height effect speakers.
The other unique feature is the ‘Artificial Intelligence’ mode. This adjusts the DSP parameters on the fly by choosing the most suitable DSP mode, dependant on the movie content as it plays.
I played the Blu-ray of Fury, switching between the AI and DTS Master, while watching the scenes involving the battle against the field guns and the battle with the Tiger tank. While the differences were by no means night and day, the dialogue was definitely cleaner with the AI function on.
If you would like to hear the Yamaha RXA 3080 (or indeed the Yamaha RXA 1080) please call us 01865 765961 to arrange a demonstration.
