However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Anti Resonance Technology

The Anti Resonance Technology Wedge is a fifth foot that is positioned underneath the center of the unit. This technology dampens vibrations that are commonly caused by power transformers, power transistors and heatsinks, as well as possible vibrations from the speaker. By removing the possibility of unwanted vibrations, the RXA2050 ensures that sound quality is not affected.

Visual and Aural Benefits

All of the Aventage AV models feature the same sleek, clean design with an elegant aluminium front panel and touch volume/selector knobs. The aluminium front panel is used to effectively shield sensitive circuitry from external noise and electronic radiation that's typically generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting and video monitors. This ensures optimum sonic performance in the widest range of installation environments.

4K Pass-Through with HDCP2.2

This AV receiver boasts advanced HDMI features such as 6 inputs and pass-through of 4K Ultra HD, letting you enjoy the high-definition video quality of 4K without degradation, while also adhering to the HDCP2.2 copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission.

DSP Parameter Adjustment

The RXA2050 is equipped with a variety of sound programmes that utilise Yamaha's original DSP technology. This technology allows you to create sound fields similar to actual movie theatres or concert halls in your desired listening space. All these functions can be controlled to suit your preference from within the AV Controller app, matching the DSP parameters to the type of music/movie or the mood you want to achieve.

AV Controller App

Yamaha's AV Controller app is downloadable from iTunes and Google Play, and allows you to control everything from power and volume to input selections and DSP modes. Designed to be compatible with smartphones and tablets, this app offers a convenient and flexible way to control your AV receiver. Additionally, the AV Controller app is available in a wide range of languages and features a fully customisable interface.
