Yamaha's range topping 11.2-channel AV Pre-Amplifier offers superb sound quality combined with fine craftsmanship ensuring an unequalled listening experience. Latest technologies include high rigidity chassis, ESS DACs and reliable balanced connection with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X when released.

The Yamaha CX-A5100 is an 11.2-channel AV Pre-Amplifier at the very top of the AVENTAGE Series. Superb sound quality in conjunction with fine craftsmanship guarantees an unequalled listening experience.

The CX-A5100 features the latest versions of 3D surround formats, advanced network functions such as WiFi and Bluetooth® compatibility, and full 4K support with HDCP2.2 compatible HDMI for the 4K era. In combination with the MX-A5000 power amplifier, you can enjoy not only a premier 3D sound field CINEMA DSP HD3 11.2 channel full-spec reproduction but also new dimensions of surround sound as found in the newest movie theatres — in your own home.

Technologies include high rigidity chassis, ESS DACs and reliable balanced connections. The CX-A5100 supports the latest surround sound playback formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. In addition to conventional channel-based audio, it is possible to create a 3D space in which separate acoustic elements can move freely, giving a sensation of the motion of “objects” above the viewer’s head that fully realises the filmmaker’s intentions. What’s more, the revamped CINEMA DSP HD3 features newly developed signal processing algorithms to increase their appeal even further.

With three sets of high performance processors for CINEMA DSP, it is possible to maximise the theatre sound effect, accurately reproducing a new dimension of realism for a sound field with a rich sense of presence unlike any system you’ve ever experienced. 

By supplementing the limited number of speakers in a home system with CINEMA DSP to create the effect of a movie theatre space with a large number of speakers, you can experience a realistic cinema sound field with the sense of truly being immersed in a movie scene.
