The new Aventage receivers all feature Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object based audio as standard, as well as support for older formats. There’s also Yamaha’s original CinemaDSP processing on board

Yamaha developed a new CinemaDSP mode called ‘Enhanced’ targeted at enhancing Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio, “…increasing precision and spatial representation of the sound field,” said the company.

Yamaha’s Scene technology has been around for years, allowing customers to restore their favourite inputs, CinemaDSP modes, initial volumes and other settings within just the push of a button or tap of an app. The Scene technology now included in the Aventage range allows for content to be stored within the Scene presets as well.
