Many features, one mission:
One look at the back of the Yamaha CX-A5100 preamp/processor, and you’ll know you’re dealing with a pretty serious home theatre component. But the large and varied collection of audio and video inputs and outputs is just the tip of the iceberg. Every facet of the CX-A1000 is meant to take your music and movie sources to new heights. It’s loaded with features like network capability, Apple AirPlay, multi-zone flexibility, 11.2-channel outputs, and inputs for almost any kind of source you can think of. But most of all, this is a well-built preamp designed to make all your entertainment choices look and sound as good as they did in the mastering studio.
Making the most of analogue and digital sources
When you see those 3-pin balanced XLR connectors lined up across the CX-A5100’s back panel, you know you’re getting a preamp designed for top audio performance. With XLR inputs and outputs, this preamp can maintain a balanced signal path from your high-end stereo source component all the way through to your power amp. This reduces the noise in the transmission, letting your music’s detail and dynamics shine through. Digital audio signals from Blu-ray and CD players are handled by dual ESS SABRE32 Ultra digital-to-analogue converters, for audiophile-grade performance in stereo or surround sound.
