Yamaha RX-A1020

AVForums
17 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The Yamaha RX-A1020 may not break the rule book when it comes to AV receiver design but that's no bad thing and the classic looks and clean lines are sure to please. There's a choice of the traditional matte black or a slightly more sexy two-tone 'Titanium' finish but whichever you chose, the build quality is excellent.
  • Pros: Excellent multi-channel performance, Very good two-channel delivery, Impressive video processing, 4K passthrough, Superb build quality, Attractive design, Excellent remote app
  • Cons: Network capabilities limited, Menus could be frustrating

Yamaha RX-A1020 A/V Receiver

Sound & Vision Magazine
28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Sing me a song. Come on, it will cheer me up. Hey, that’s good. Can you sing while juggling? Here’s the fruit bowl, let’s see what you can do. Wow, that was great. Now do the singing and juggling while standing on one foot. That was amazing! Can you sing and juggle while hopping on one foot? Incredible, although I must say the hopping affected your vibrato a little. Now let me see you sing, juggle, and hop on one foot while rotating—hey, where are you going?

  • Excerpt: Yamaha’s third generation of its premium ‘Aventage’ range is here. Now consisting of five models, the RX-A1020 is right in the middle, but shares some of the higher end features. For example, it has the ‘Anti-resonance wedge’ — a fifth foot right in the middle of the base plate. It also has eight HDMI inputs with two HDMI outputs. Unlike the higher two models, though, it has seven rather than nine amplifiers.

  • Summary: Yamaha-receiveren har funktioner, som gør, at du kan skræddersy lydbilledet i hjemmebiografen. Højdekanalerne klarer på ypperlig vis at gengive et tredimensionelt lydbillede og gør også, at du virtuelt kan hæve centerkanalen længere op på væggen. Du kan også justere tydeligheden af dialogerne, og Enhanced Surround gør, at de mange højttalere integreres ekstra godt i lydbilledet og dermed forsvinder.
  • Pros: Heftig lyd, Glimrende højdekanaler, Overlegen fjernbetjenings-app til mobile enheder, Pladespillerindgang
  • Cons: Ikke de mest finmaskede overtoner

  • Excerpt: Yamaha RX-A1020 är en avancerad receiver med smarta funktioner som lyfter ljudet till nya höjder. Och när den dessutom låtar supertufft med både musik och film är det ingen tvekan. Vill du ha den bästa hemmabioupplevelsen från en receiver för runt tiotusen kronor så är det den här du ska köpa.

  • Summary: Yamaha RX-A1020 er en avansert receiver med smarte funksjoner som løfter lydopplevelsen til nye høyder. Den har ikke nyansene i overtonene til en likepriset stereoforsterker. Men den har definitivt kraften. Og summen av det hele gjør den til kongen i hjemmekinoen!
