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.
