    Yes the X says it all: THIS Yamaha isn’t another A-1 and it’s not quite a brand new stand-alone unit either. So X marks the spot and sets the standard for 2000 home theatre according to Yamaha.

    While some of the upgrades may be subtle changes, collectively the AX-1 is a looooong way removed from the 1992 DSPA-1000 and that’s the point and probably the main question: what have Yamaha done to lift the bar even if it is by just a little on the award winning A-1?

    Fact is the level of performance of home theatre products is so consistently high it’s leaving little left to explore. But the buzz around the net is the addition of the centre rear 6.1 ES/EX decoding (and from what I heard with the addition of a centre rear, it could be an extremely valuable upgrade) and a couple of upgrades to make life easier including new Burr-Brown chips.

    For the techos here’s what’s under the hood:

    • Dolby EX Processing
    • DTS ES Processing
    • Component Switching
    • 6 Channel External Decoder Input
    • Burr-Brown DACs on all channels
    • Added rear channel and EQ for Dolby EX and DTS ES
    • RS 232 computer interface (for interfacing with multi-room systems))
    • Yamaha 44-bit DSP LSIs
    • 54 hi-fi/cinema DSP modes
    • Dolby Digital EX and DTS ES are available on their own (normal) and withYamaha’s DSP modes (e.g. EX Spectacle, ES Enhanced, EX General, etc.)
