Yamaha Adds Control4 To Aventage Series AVRs

Buena Park, Calif.-- Yamaha's recently announced Aventage series of AVRs has obtained Control4 certification to ensure their compatibility with Control4 home automation systems.

The AVRs are also compatible with other-brand home-automation systems via RS-232c control ports and more than 800 extended and standard IR codes, the company said.

The Aventage series of A/V receivers was unveiled earlier this year at suggested retails from $649 to $1,899. Aventage (Ah-Ven-Taj) stands for A/V ENTertainment New AGE, designates a series of products that was  "two years in the making" and delivers more than the "little evolutionary steps" that suppliers often make to AVRs from year to year to improve sound and video quality, a company spokesperson previously said.

Aventage replaces the RX-V series name at price points of $649 and up. The RX-V name continues onlower priced models introduced earlier this year at a suggested $249 to $599.
