Yamaha Design “Synapses” AVENTAGE
High-end AV receivers that respond to enduring attachment. The AVENTAGE Series.
A noiseless design with few extraeneous elements, and each function zoned and aligned with precision. The AVENTAGE Series embodies the pure sound that is the timeless heart of Yamaha audio.
The AVENTAGE Series offers high quality, high performance audio without becoming an overly assertive presence in an audio rack. The receivers possess a neutral presence that supports an entire AV system, placing an emphasis on the video.
The contact surfaces of the metal rotary knobs are slightly concave to the touch, and feature a pleasant tactility that attracts the fingers, expressing the designers’ intent that the controls themselves should "grasp" the hands.
The upper area of the front panel where lettering is displayed features a cut section of thick, jet-black smoked acrylic, while the lower area features luxuriously curved aluminum with a hairline finish. Both the display area and the operations panel have been given an appearance that harmonizes with nearby televisions and AV equipment.
