Yamaha will soon make DTS:X technology available for select AVENTAGE AV receivers, an AV processor, and a sound bar via firmware updates that will enable three-dimensional listening experiences at home. These firmware updates will be available in early March for the AV receivers/processor and late April for the YSP-5600 sound bar.

The CX-A5100 AV processor and the RX-A3050, RX-A2050, RX-A1050 AV receivers all currently support Dolby Atmos and soon should be more agile with the addition of DTS:X for home theater use.

With the CX-A5100, Yamaha enables CINEMA DSP (a proprietary sound field processor) to be applied to both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X during playback. By applying CINEMA DSP, the user should feel a greater degree of immersion.

Already the world’s first sound bar with Dolby Atmos, the YSP-5600 will be first sound bar with DTS:X technology. The YSP-5600 recreates the placement of all the speakers by using “sound beams” that reflect off of surrounding walls and now off the ceiling to bounce back to the listener’s position.
