Yamaha RX-A2040 review

 

It's easy to forget that Yamaha effectively invented the home cinema receiver market. When screens were square and multichannel audio was young and frisky, it pioneered with monster AV receivers that became things of legend. Back then, DSP was...

Nine channels of amplification; fast, lively delivery; good connectivity

No DSD support over the network or via USB; no HDCP 2.2 copy protection; over-complicated remote; retro user interface

Yamaha RX-A2040 Dolby Atmos AV Receiver Review

 

The Yamaha RX-A2040 is a powerful Dolby Atmos AV receiver, 9 channels of amplification, multiple zones for a whole house audio and wifi for streaming. Check out our extensive Atmos listening tests.

Good value when comparing features and power to competitors ; Multiple zones and other whole-house features ; Atmos and Yamaha Presence mode give you lots of options for height speakers and they actually sound good most of the time ; Simple to use once...

Goofy Cinema DSP Sound Fields are too prominent in remote and on-screen menu, crowding my essential functions ; Smart Phone settings for input names don't carry over to the actual unit display

Yamaha Aventage RX-A2040 AV Receiver Review

 

Yamaha's one-step-down AVR delivers top-notch performance and features at a somewhat less than flagship price. Thanks. For me this was a great buy because my receiver died and I wanted something with Atmos

Rich, powerful sound with gobs of detail; Dolby Atmos capable; UHD-ready with 4K scaling and HDMI 2.0

No HDCP 2.2 DRM to handle future UHD content; Basic remote isn’t backlit
