Yamaha has announced a trio of new high-end home cinema amplifiers (first reported by FlatpanelsHD and now confirmed directly with Yamaha). The RX-A4A, RX-A6A and flagship RX-A8A support Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D. They also boast HDMI 2.1 with support for 4K@120fps and 8K@60fps which, on the face of it, sounds like a huge boost for your home cinema and gaming.

We say ‘on the face of it’ because the company’s previous crop of high-end 8K receivers were blighted by a faulty HDMI 2.1 chip that meant some units weren’t able to support 4K gaming at 120Hz. The same HDMI 2.1 glitch affected Denon and Marantz’s 2020 8K AV receivers.
