Streaming, iPhone connectivity, and front USB ports are among the new additions.
The Aventage receiver line is an important one for Yamaha. It's a new design and a different way of looking at receivers for the company. They've just announced the second generation of those receivers and there's plenty new to love.
Yamaha brought plenty of features to the line, and introduced what used to be high-end features to all of the receivers in the series. Every one of them can stream music from a PC, bring up internet radio and they all feature front USB ports for iPhone and iPod connections.
The two high-end receivers in the line offer something new to the Aventage line - 9.2 channel audio. The rest of the receivers push out either 7.1 or 7.2 audio channels.
Yamaha's new receivers will be available in August and September at prices starting at $649.
