Review: Yamaha RX-Z11 11.2 Surround Sound Receiver

Wired
4 February 2008
  • Excerpt: When it comes to top-shelf stereo receivers, Yamaha’s new RX-Z11 sets a high bar for feature-rich high definition amplifiers. Sure, it’s got your XM-HD, HD Radio, Dolby True HD, and neural surround.
  • Pros: More channels than a basic cable package. Plenty of HDMI inputs (five) for all your gear. Pumps out rich sound with detailed separation at low, medium, and traumatic brain injury inducing volumes. Attractive backlit remote with LCD screen. Easy auto calibration.
  • Cons: Excellent price point, assuming you are Oprah. Back panel resembles a migraine headache. Just moving the behemoth might put you in the hospital with a ruptured disc. “Quick Start Guide”? Oh please.
