Sonically, the RX-V473 is a solid performer. It had no problem driving a set of Energy Take Classic 5.1 ($399, 4 stars) speakers to deafening levels in our testing lab. That said, the quality of the sound was ever so slightly off when compared with the...

Yamaha RX-V473 and RX-V573 A/V Receivers

Yamaha RX-V473

 

An affordable AirPlay-equipped AV receiver.

Detailed sound with decent grunt ; AirPlay and internet radio ; Sleek black design

Basic looking menu system ; Couldn’t stream from Windows Media Player ; Cluttered remote

They’re joined by two sets of component video inputs and one output; four composite video inputs and two outputs; three digital audio inputs (two optical, two coaxial); three analogue stereo inputs and one output; a subwoofer pre-out; an Ethernet port...

I haven't done much with this receiver yet... just enough to know that it works. I was impressed by the number of internet radio stations it had, but the user interface & OSD are a little primitive looking. Not super easy to use. But the physical...
