Summary: Watch out. Though this unit is probably perfect in every way, its internal BurrBrown DACs are crippled by the fact that you cannot use an external HiFi amp and are forced to use its own rather weak amplifier. Now this may be a complete deal breaker for many that are actually looking for a compact high quality AV receiver and have dedicated external amps to power the speakers...even simple 2 channel.
It connects to the wifi and lets you connect to any internet radio station or airplay from any mac device super easily, includin

Summary: This thing ROCKS! We had a 20K Control4 system in our past house, and it didn't work as well as this thing does. We have it hooked up just to a living room TV system, and speakers. It connects to the wifi and lets you connect to any internet radio station or airplay from any mac device super easily, including Spotify integration. It's so awesome, and easy to use. Has great fidelity with the image too, connected to our Samsung 4k TV. AND this thing has a low profile.
Summary: This equipment delivers on its promise. Sound is clear, power is more than enough (I can't ever raise it completely), and works exactly as described. Only problem was with the network remote control via iphone that never worked correctly, however, it's not a big issue for me.

Summary: This receiver is replacing an entry level Onkyo AVR in my main room. The room leaves a bit to be desired lighting and acoustics wise, so I have another room for serious home theater. But I find I can upgrade the lower end equipment more regularly, so my main room has much more modern tech which allows me to figure out when new tech has matured enough to upgrade the home theater room.
Summary: I have only owned a couple of AV receivers, but that is generally because I think long and hard about the devices I bring into my home. When I thought it might be time for an upgrade, I was pliantly surprised by the Yamaha RX-S600. The primary thing you will notice about this receiver is that it is thin; it’s not especially light, but it is easy to maneuver into the tight space of the average av cabinet.
Summary: Fits my tight space perfectly. Airplay works and I actually use it quite a bit. Took a chance on 1 that was returned to warehouse to save $$ and I can't find anything wrong with it. It just works. Only negative I have is the power, amp is pretty weak, having to bi-amp my front l and r to make it sound good. Overall happy with purchase.
