  • Denon AVRX6300H 11.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Built-in HEOS wireless technology featuring Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

    The powerful Denon AVR-X6300H can drive a complete 11-speaker Dolby Atmos/DTS-X sound setup without resorting to additional amplifiers. The X6300 utilizes Audyssey room audio correction, handles the latest 4K HDR formats, and plays nice with popular lossless audio formats. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet link the X6300 with a solid remote app that transforms a phone or tablet into a simplified control center. You could save several hundred dollars going with the Denon AVR-X4300H, but only 9 of its 11-speaker terminals are amplified requiring more hardware if you ever decide to use those last two channels. Either way, Denon's 2016 AVRs are equipped to handle today's best AV content.

     
  • RX-V681 7.2-Ch x 90 Watts Networking A/V Receiver

    The 2016 Yamaha RX-V681 7.2-channel audio-video receiver (AVR) is an ideal hub for all of your home theater devices, and the 681 features full support for 4K ultra HD video sources that require HDCP 2.2 content protection. The V681 also upscales all connected analog and digital video sources up to UHD resolution. Compared to step-up RX-V781, the V681 loses 5W per channel, multipoint mic setup, and Zone B video output - consider your needs. The V681's Bluetooth/Wi-Fi networking includes support for popular services like Airplay, Pandora, Rhapsody, Spotify, Sirius XM, vTuner, and Wireless Direct connectivity. I also appreciate the excellent Yamaha AV Controller app (iOS and Android) that simplifies control over a local network and makes it easier for me to select audio tracks from connected storage devices. Design-wise, the V681d provides binding posts for all speaker connections (including zone-2 stereo speakers) and an aluminum front panel for enhanced chassis rigidity. For a more budget-friendly 5.1-channel option, consider the new Yamaha RX-V481 that also features quality binding posts for all speaker connections and wireless connectivity for easy streaming and updates.
