OK, you only get seven chan­nels, but Yamaha’s unit is a wor­thy op­tion for less money

T3 - - State of the Art -

Denon isn’t the only com­pany that’s in­te­grat­ing multi-room into home theatre. The £899 Yamaha RX-A860 is a seven-chan­nel Dolby At­mos and DTS: X re­ceiver that can also stream from, or func­tion as, a zone in a multi-room sys­tem. Want to route TV au­dio to a com­pact kitchen speaker? No prob­lem! In fact, with seven HDMI in­puts, you can send all man­ner of sound sources around the house. The re­ceiver also sup­ports Ap­ple Air­Play. Yamaha’s Cinema DSP pro­cess­ing means that what­ever is streamed to the AVR can be pro­cessed into mul­ti­ple flavours of multi-chan­nel.
