YAMAHA RX-A860 AV RECEIVE R
OK, you only get seven channels, but Yamaha’s unit is a worthy option for less money
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.
