    In full disclosure, I returned this item, but not because I didn't like it. The truth is I wanted a hub to feed via a single HDMI cable AV signals from digital and analog sources to an HDMI-capable TV and then from said TV via an optical cable into a Sonos PLAYBAR. I would have kept this receiver if it included a front-facing RCA auxiliary input. Sadly, it does not. Still, for most needs, this svelte receiver will more than satisfy

    Yamaha RX-S601
    Finding space for a big, bulky receiver in your AV rack can be a bit of challenge, but Yamaha has a solution in the svelte shape of the RX-S601. This five-channel AV receiver squeezes everything into a box measuring just 111mm high, making it easyFull Review
