The company's latest preamp includes immersive audio tech.
Yamaha has detailed the newest addition to its AVENTAGE product lineup. The CX-A5100 Preamp offers support for DTS:X and Dolby Atmos.
"The CX-A5100 is a special piece for serious home theater fans, offering Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, as well as the bulletproof performance that our customers expect from Yamaha — especially from our flagship sound and build quality solutions," said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV Division, Yamaha Corporation of America. "In addition, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and MusicCast provide great accessibility and freedom, so music from mobile devices and networked sources can be enjoyed in multiple rooms in the house."
The preamp features 11.2-channel support for up to 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio configurations. In addition, the device uses SABRE32 Ultra DACs with 192 kHz / 32-bit processing. Likewise, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, high-res audio playback, and 4K support with HDCP 2.2 compliancy are also included. Finally, MusicCast wireless multiroom audio compatibility is integrated as well.
Yamaha's CX-A5100 is expected to start shipping in late August for a suggested retail price of $2,999.
