Yamaha announced update with HDR10 + and 4K120 to AV receivers: Yamaha announced a major update to its more recent AV receivers this week. The models were announced a little over a year ago, but only now receive support for a number of important features, including HDR10 +, 4K120 and 8K120.
Almost a year ago Yamaha released the RX-A4A, RX-A6A and RX-A8A AV receivers. Although these models are equipped with HDMI 2.1 quite a few important features were missing from this standard. As of today, a number of these features can be removed from the wish list.
Firmware update version 1.65 adds support for 8K resolution at 60 frames per second (8K60) and support for 4K resolution at 120 frames per second (4K120) to the RX-A4A, RX-A6A and RX-A8A. In addition, the update ensures that HDR10 + material is supported.
However, the new Yamaha receivers still do not offer all the features of HDMI 2.1. For example, VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), QFT (Quick Frame Transport) and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) are still missing. The Japanese manufacturer indicates that it is working hard to bring these features to the receivers as soon as possible.
