Yamaha has announced new recipients ready for 8K, 4K / 120 and Xbox Series X
Last year we started hearing about first receivers with HDMI 2.1, which means they can handle more than 8K resolutions, as well as 120Hz 4K throws by new console players. Woe to you, HDMI 2.1 interface compatibility has not been as stable as we expect, and several recipient manufacturers have informed customers knows the problem that affects the Xbox Series X when you try to play 4K / 120Hz games.
Now Yamaha has announced a new line of top 20 Aventage recipients in 2021 which can pique your interest RX-A8A, RX-A6A and RX-A4A it consists of 11-, 9- and 7-channels, respectively. Right away, Yamaha said this HDMI 2.1 interface if 4K / 120Hz, 8K / 60Hz, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Automatic Low Latency Mode (ALLM), Quick Frame Transport (QFT) and Quick Media switching (QMS) will not be set.
The company is said to be empowered through future upgrades, and assured Engadget that the upgrades will re-encounter with the Xbox Series X. Until then, as with recent models, owners wishing to use any of these devices should shut down their software directly on TV and use HDMI eARC to transmit audio to the recipient.
Support for 3D audio types like Dolby Atmos and DTS: X is provided, and supports Dolby Vision on all HDMI formats. It also comes with a microphone to monitor your masterpieces and voice recorders, as well as support providers like Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant. The two high-end models will add Auro 3D and modifications, which Yamaha is said to create a “clear, three-dimensional image that moves around the listener.”
Given the current state of HDMI 2.1, I can’t blame you for waiting until the update is confirmed to have resolved any issues before purchasing a blood transfusion. But if they sell in the summer, the RX-A8A will cost $ 3,000, the RX-A6A will be $ 2,200 and the RX-A4A will be $ 1,300.
