Yamaha RX-S600 Slimline AV Receiver Preview

 

Priced at $650, the Yamaha RX-S600 slimline A/V receiver can fit where others don't. Does this half pint have what it takes to measure up to the big boys? Keep reading to see what we think.

Yamaha RX-S600

 

Yamaha's low-profile AV receiver boasts AirPlay, Spotify, DLNA and looks the business

Slim design, easy to accommodate, Generous network features and good spec, Build quality

Rudimentary onscreen menus, Some rivals sound bigger and punchier

Yamaha RX-S600

 

An excellent amp that sheds the pounds while maintaining great sound and good features

A rounded performance ; Full-bodied ; Expressive ; Entertaining ; Smaller than the average AV receiver

Not the best in sound and features ; Remote control is fiddly

Overall, the Yamaha RX-S600 slimline AV receiver is a success. Sure, it doesn’t match the very best for sound and features.

Great performance in a small package.

 

Time to upgrade to a receiver that had airplay, and HDMI connections. Really looked for a small unit so I could use a smaller entertainment center in our downsized condo. Very pleased wit this unit. Only disappointment is the airplay will not do video....

Glad I took the risk!!

 

I took a risk and bought this unit on the strength of the rep of Yamaha receivers because no one had it in stock for me to listen to. Glad I took the risk. Plenty of power, very slick android app for COMPLETE control of this unit from my galaxy tab,...
