Introducing the Yamaha BD-A1060 Aventage 3D Blu-Ray Player

|

The BD-A1060 offers the superior benefits of AV entertainment associated with the AVENTAGE name. In addition to the expected high level of video quality, it features high performance audio devices and functions such as 32-bit audio DACs and CD Mode. Teaming it with an AVENTAGE AV receiver will provide truly outstanding performance.

The BD-A1060 supports playback from Blu-ray 3D discs, as well as from SACD and DVD discs. It is compatible with the Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound formats. Additionally, for network use, it can handle FLAC and ALAC 192kHz/24-bit and DSD5.6 MHz high resolution audio formats. You can enjoy a wide variety of video and audio content with just this one player.

This Blu-ray Disc Player is compatible with Miracast, a wireless standard that lets you connect any Miracast compatible smartphone or tablet for mirroring videos and photos to the player, so the whole family can view them on a widescreen TV. When using a Yamaha AV receiver, you'll enjoy a variety of media mirrored via Miracast with dynamic sound.

Wi-Fi Built-in capability allows wireless connection with your household wireless router, greatly simplifying system connections to enjoy network audio and music streaming services. You can control your Blu-ray Disc Player using the AV Controller app or MusicCast app. If no Wi-Fi router is available, the Wi-Fi Direct feature allows you to stream music and movie directly from your mobile device.

The BD-A1060 features a 4K upscaling function. Any resolution video image can be upscale to the latest 4K resolution. You can enjoy video from Blu-ray Discs with the image detail and depth that only 4K can provide.

The BD-A1060 provides XLR audio output terminals, which are used for pro audio applications and ensure low noise for high sound quality. In addition, all stages after the audio DAC to the output terminals are balanced. When used together with an amp that has balanced input terminals, such as the CX-A5100 AV Preamp or the A-S3000 or A-S2100 Hi-Fi Integrated Amps, the highest possible disc reproduction performance is achieved.

The BD-A1060 offers a CD Mode for playing music discs. This mode reduces disc revolution by 20%, thus improving data reading sensitivity. In addition, the combination of drive motor stability and disc rotation greatly reduces vibration. It also turns off the HDMI video output and other circuits that are unnecessary for audio playback. As in high-end CD players, high sound quality music reproduction has become possible.
