Details

We like the Yamaha RX-A830. It's one of those receivers that provides pretty much everything you need feature wise, and also has a cracking sound.

It's able to decode all the latest sound formats and equally supports all the latest video formats, including upscaling to a maximum of 4K resolution - and of course the ability to handle 3D. With its 7 channels of power you've also got a lot of choice on configuration, either by running a full 7 channel system or by running a 5.1 system and a second stereo system in another room. You can even bi-amp your fronts for best sound.

Networking is also built in, although you'll need to add the YWA-10 wireless adaptor to your order if you want to go wireless. Once attached to the network you'll be able to access features such as internet radio, Napster and of course the ability to stream your own movies, music and photos across your home network.

Sound quality is good - Yamaha always has a tendency to be a little forward and bright which gives a greater impact to movie scenes but can also make things sound a little harsh. Easily remedied of course by balancing against softer speakers - if indeed you wish to balance it!
