Conclusion: Yamaha has compiled pretty much everything you could ask for into the RX-V575 7.2-channel receiver: excellent audio performance, plenty of features, and great ergonomics. Minor quips aside, this receiver has a lot of what you'd need right now and maybe even beyond, which is pretty darn impressive, given the price. It's a good-looking unit that's easy enough to use for the average user, but would certainly please someone with a more advanced A/V palate.
Pros: AV performance is nothing short of excellent, AirPlay is included, Ready when you are for 4K, Plenty of networking features, including Pandora, internet radio and DLNA audio, Pretty comprehensive app control
Cons: Front-panel display can be a bit confusing, Bluetooth and WiFi will cost you extra, The remote cries out for backlighting, No HDMI port on the front, No analog video upconversion
