Yamaha Takes the Aventage
The CX-A5000 also features AirPlay technology, something I’m happy to see popping up everywhere, so you can stream Pandora away from your iPhone’s blissfully inadequate internal speaker to your home theater system. But it’s not just a parade of features, as the CX-A-5000 really claims to have catered to audiophiles. Touting 192 kHz/32-bit, ESS Technology ES9016 SABRE32™ Ultra DACs with a claimed 124 dB of dynamic range, and balanced XLR connections to keep the noise floor low, the CX-A5000 promises to be something we definitely have to investigate. Price is $2,995.95 MSRP.
