Yamaha RX-S601


Finding space for a big, bulky receiver in your AV rack can be a bit of challenge, but Yamaha has a solution in the svelte shape of the RX-S601. This five-channel AV receiver squeezes everything into a box measuring just 111mm high, making it easy to...

An impressive AV receiver that delivers bold, exciting 5.1 sound and heaps of features from a slim, space-saving box.
