AVENTAGE Build Standards

AVENTAGE brings studio-grade sound and sophisticated video enhancements to your home with unparalleled attention to detail in design, engineering and fabrication. Every electrical path, every part, every piece, was rethought and redesigned if necessary to achieve total performance excellence throughout the series. Materials were tested thoroughly and the finest were selected to maximize audio / video playback performance.


4K Ultra HD with HDCP 2.2 and HDR Support

Enjoy 4K video at 60 frames per second (pass-through and video upscaling) with HDCP 2.2 that fully complies with the latest copyright protection, a standard for 4K video transmission. It also supports HDR* video which provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image.

Single-Bit Direct DSD Processing

Enjoy music as it was mastered in the studio without loss or compression. Listen to DSD audio files with single-bit processing over the network connection or through the USB input on the front panel. Depending on the file, DSD audio is processed one bit at a time at a rate of 2.8 MHz or 5.6 MHz on the CX-A5100.

High-resolution Music Enhancer

When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. The Compressed Music Enhancer in this model has the capability to process and restore compressed music (up to 96 kHz / 32-bit) further heightening the musicality of the original content.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Enter a new world of sound with Dolby Atmos. It transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with captivating, multidimensional sound that fills your room and flows all around you to move your mind, body, and soul. Additionally, enjoy DTS:X for the next generation object-based, multi-dimensional audio technology from DTS.


Cinema DSP HD3

CINEMA DSP HD3 literally takes the surround sound experience to new heights. By using four CINEMA DSP engines with advanced 3D processing and two front presence channels in a 9.2-channel configuration, it gives the sound field an enhanced vertical dimension for more realistic and exciting movie sound. The CX-A5100 is the only AVENTAGE model where Cinema DSP HD3 will work with object based surround formats (Dolby Atmos and DTS:X).

ESS Technology

An ultra-high performance ESS Technology 192 kHz/32 bit ES9016 DAC produces an unsurpassed sound stage with up to 124 dB dynamic range, super low distortion and noise level. High-quality ESS ES9006 DACs power the presence channels. This preamp processor houses two of these chips to accommodate its advanced digital signal processing abilities for best in class performance.

Copper Shielded Toroidal Transformer

The internal design separates the power supplies to the analog circuit boards, eliminating high frequency noise interference from the digital circuitry. The shielded power supplies restrict noise radiation and the large power transformer minimizes vibration.

High Quality XLR Terminals

With balanced XLR outputs, the impact of noise flowing between the preamp and power-amp is removed, minimizing sound quality deterioration due to the connection. XLR terminals allow for the use of long cables that may be needed to connect a subwoofer as well. The CX-A5100 also has a balanced audio input connection for high-grade source components such as SACD players and USB DACs.
