    In pursuit of the ultimate in home cinema, Yamaha establishes a new benchmark in performance and innovation.

    Introducing the CX-A5200 pre-amplifier and MX-A5200 power amplifier.

    Power and Presence
    The MX-A5200 offers 11 x discrete channels of amplification with flexible configuration options - delivering an impressive combination of power and quality.

    Enjoy the flexibility of a multi-zone system or immerse yourself in exhilarating surround sound using any combination of 11-channels.

    Ultimate Performance with BTL
    To further enhance power capacity, the MX-A5200 supports Bridge Tied Load (BTL) configuration for the front 2 channels. This allows for a major improvement to the front speaker performance.

    Uncompromising Design
    As part of its uncompromising design, the MX-A5200 boasts a specially designed chassis to maximise rigidity and eliminate the effects of vibration.

    The MX-A5200 employs a double bottom construction consisting of vibration control plates made of 1.6 mm steel - echoing that of the legendary Z11 AV receiver.

    In order to support the heavy heat sinks and other components, a left-right independent construction strengthened by a rigid-frame structure is utilised. The bottom frame reduces the transmission of vibration produced by the large power supply transformer and heat sinks.

    The MX-A5200 also incorporates a heavy insulator that blocks external vibration.

    Perfectly Symmetrical
    Precisely planned, circuit-routed and designed with a symmetrical power amplifier layout, the MX-A5200 achieves ideal channel separation with left and right sides being both physically and electrically isolated.

    The design also greatly improves signal-to-noise ratio and achieves an expansive sound stage.

    Effortless Performance
    The MX-A5200 utilises a high-output, large toroidal transformer combined with 2 specially developed high-capacity block capacitors to deliver massive power with generous headroom.

    Also, energy loss is minimised and ensures effortless reproduction of sound sources.

    Superior Connection
    The rear of the MX-A52000 features high-quality, gold-plated terminals that are compatible with Y plugs (spade connectors) for optimal connections with speakers.

    Heavy-duty Bottom Plate
    Stabilising the chassis is the key to enhanced performance and deep, sinking sound. The MX-A5200 achieves this by employing a thick bottom plate which acts to steady the entire structure and achieve optimal sound.

    Balanced XLR Connections
    When connecting AV components, electrical noise can be introduced - a result of the connections between them and also from other sources of external noise.

    To combat this inherent issue, the MX-A5200 utilizes balanced connections for all 11-channels - the same type found in professional audio applications.

    Additionally, the alternative RCA unbalanced connection uses a ground sensing transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission.
