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.

Yamaha RX-S600 AV Receiver Review


Yamaha's slimline RX-S600 AV receiver might well be the answer for those put off by the idea of a bulky multi-channel AVR in their front room.

Good sound quality ; Simplified connections ; Attractive design ; Plenty of features ; Great remote app

More HDMI inputs would be good ; Lacking in power ; Remote control is too busy ; Bit pricey

The Yamaha RX-S600 is an interesting product that attempts to bridge the gap between the simplified all-in-one systems and the more expensive and imposing fully-featured AV receivers. The RX-S600 uses a fairly simplified and minimalist design, although...

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.

Sound & Vision TOP PICK

Expert review by : Mark Fleischmann (

Yamaha RX-S600 AV Receiver


This sensible little AVR has enough good-sounding power to run an efficient set of speakers or passive soundbar.

Modest but clean power; Slim form factor; Apple AirPlay

Not for demanding speakers; Bluetooth costs extra

Amazing Receiver


This receiver is much more than I should have purchased. I was lured by its fancy features and low profile. I know it will suit my needs from now until the end of time, but I could have probably found a receiver for a little less money that just fit my...

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,...
