AVENTAGE Separate Components represent the pinnacle in exhilarating home entertainment.
In pursuit of the ultimate in home cinema, Yamaha establishes a new benchmark in performance and innovation.
Introducing the CX-A5200 pre-amplifier and MX-A5200 power amplifier.
The MX-A5200 offers 11 x discrete channels of amplification with flexible configuration options – delivering an impressive combination of power and quality.
Enjoy the flexibility of a multi-zone system or immerse yourself in exhilarating surround sound using any combination of 11-channels.
To further enhance power capacity, the MX-A5200 supports Bridge Tied Load (BTL) configuration for the front 2 channels. This allows for a major improvement to the front speaker performance.
As part of its uncompromising design, the MX-A5200 boasts a specially designed chassis to maximise rigidity and eliminate the effects of vibration.
The MX-A5200 employs a double bottom construction consisting of vibration control plates made of 1.6 mm steel – echoing that of the legendary Z11 AV receiver.
In order to support the heavy heat sinks and other components, a left-right independent construction strengthened by a rigid-frame structure is utilised. The bottom frame reduces the transmission of vibration produced by the large power supply transformer and heat sinks.
The MX-A5200 also incorporates a heavy insulator that blocks external vibration.
Precisely planned, circuit-routed and designed with a symmetrical power amplifier layout, the MX-A5200 achieves ideal channel separation with left and right sides being both physically and electrically isolated.
The design also greatly improves signal-to-noise ratio and achieves an expansive sound stage.
The MX-A5200 utilises a high-output, large toroidal transformer combined with 2 specially developed high-capacity block capacitors to deliver massive power with generous headroom.
Also, energy loss is minimised and ensures effortless reproduction of sound sources.
The rear of the MX-A52000 features high-quality, gold-plated terminals that are compatible with Y plugs (spade connectors) for optimal connections with speakers.
Stabilising the chassis is the key to enhanced performance and deep, sinking sound. The MX-A5200 achieves this by employing a thick bottom plate which acts to steady the entire structure and achieve optimal sound.
When connecting AV components, electrical noise can be introduced – a result of the connections between them and also from other sources of external noise.
To combat this inherent issue, the MX-A5200 utilizes balanced connections for all 11-channels – the same type found in professional audio applications.
Additionally, the alternative RCA unbalanced connection uses a ground sensing transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission.
