Need an AVR with a small form factor?

Fr8mvr, Yamaha
29 April 2015
  • Summary: A good 5.1 system. Invest in good speakers/sub.. Size is perfect for small enclosures. Major disappointment is that you can't wireless stream video. Remote is too small. YPAO set up is ok but had to tweak my settings for what I prefer. Works well in my small den. Sounds is very good.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality, Size
  • Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Too Many Dsp Fields

Great features in a short chassis and AirPlay works like it should

  • Summary: We purchased Yamaha RX-S600 because it had all the features we needed and it was one of the few short enough to fit in our TV stand, we have been using it for 2 days at this point. So far I am very impressed with the sound and feature set for such a small receiver.

  • 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.

Excellent Option With Advanced Capabilities

Jack Turner, Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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.

Slim and sleek, a little light on connectivity options

  • Summary: This receiver replaced my Pioneer VSX-D811s in my downstairs TV room (it was in the main theater room until replaced by an Onkyo). As I recall, the Pioneer was about $600 when I bought it.

Great feature set in the perfect sized package

Troy, Crutchfield
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I have owned this receiver and had it fully integrated into my system for a few days now. So far I am very impressed with the sound and feature set for such a small receiver. Our usage is primarily AirPlay (which works much better on this device than others I have tried in the past and connects...

  • Cons: The MHL capable HDMI port is on the rear rather than the front panel for easy access The component audio out port will not output AirPlay audio

Great things come in small packages!

Beantown Audiophile, Crutchfield
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I only took delivery of this unit a few days ago so still evaluating but based on initial use and impressions I'd give 4.5 stars. It has relatively clean power, a small footprint (which was very important to me for this particular application), with decent features.
  • Pros: 1) bang for the buck in a small footprint unit 2) good compromise - slim profile with decently clean power and features 3) very easy setup 4) Crutchfield service 5) build quality on par with what one expects from Yamaha
  • Cons: 1) no true secondary speaker selection 2) no built in wifi solution 3) weak smart app

Great, Not Awe Inspiring - But They Did Put Everything In A Nice Compact Package

Carter H "1amazonreviewer@gmail . com", Amazon

  • Summary: Setting up the amp is very easy. Connect the included microphone to the mic input on the front panel and automatic set-up begins. After pressing `yes' a couple of times, you'll get about 30 seconds of test tones, which the amp uses to calculate the sizes, distance and volume of your speakers.
