Product Details

Yamaha Black Slim 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver, Model RXS600BL

Features:

  • Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality
    The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimise distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analogue and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analogue circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality
  • Excellent Sound and Many Advanced Features in a Compact Body
    Delivers audio performance at the head of its class, thanks to a revamped ground and power supply pattern, as well as meticulously selected and custom designed parts, such as the transformer and heat sink. Features analogue discrete amplifier construction, a low jitter PLL circuit and high power output. Other top-grade features include an aluminium front panel and high-grade, large screw-type speaker terminals
  • Extensive Audio Codec and Format Support
    This AV receiver is compatible with many audio formats such as Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio. They are also compatible with FLAC / WAV 192kHz playback. You will enjoy excellent sound quality from Blu-ray Discs and other types of high resolution sources
  • 4K Ultra HD pass-through for next generation super high resolution images
    This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI features including 4K Ultra HD pass-through. 4K Ultra HD refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. While not yet available, 4K Ultra HD displays and sources are sure to become popular in the future. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K Ultra HD data from the source to the display, for image clarity far beyond present standards
  • HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
    3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable, with no need for an extra optical cable
  • Network Functions
    This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet Radio, and operate your system via Web Browser Control. The AV Controller app (from iTunes App Store or Google play) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones / tablets
  • AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
    This AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller app that is downloadable from the iTunes App Store or Google Play to control power on / off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone or Android devices. You can also use in as many as 23* different languages and customise the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available
    • *As of spring 2013
  • AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV receiver
    This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on Macs or PCs. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theatre system. You can use view metadata such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via AV receiver's on-screen display
    • *Some models don't support album art display
  • Stream Millions of Songs with Spotify Connect (Coming Soon)
    With the Spotify app on your smartphone, you've got instant access to millions of songs. And now you can stream those songs to your Yamaha system by using Spotify Connect. Just hit play to start streaming music. What's more, when you've been listening on your smartphone outside and come inside, the song immediately streams to your AVR—like magic, you enjoy uninterrupted music. You can also personalise playlists and receive phone calls while listening to music
  • USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel
    A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod / iPhone / iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod / iPhone / iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod / iPhone / iPad music playback functions
  • MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) Support for High Quality Video and Audio
    MHL provides easy, direct connection of compatible mobile phones and this AV receiver. Playback of up to 1080p video and multi-channel audio from the phones is supported. The receiver also charges the connected phone. Play, Stop and other basic operations can be controlled from the remote control
  • YPAO Sound Optimisation for Automatic Speaker Setup
    YPAO analyses the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system
  • SCENE for One-Touch Start
    Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV Receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can re-set the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds
  • HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
    Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV, and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver’s remote unit to control player functions like Skip and Stop
    • *All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible TVs / players may not work
  • Input Selection in HDMI Standby Through Mode
    When the AV receiver is in HDMI Standby Through mode, the input source (Blu-ray™ Disc player, game console, etc.) for viewing on the monitor can be changed via the remote control. There’s no need to turn on the AV receiver in order to switch sources
  • Connection for YWA-10 WiFi Adapter
    This AV receiver provide a DC-out connection for the YWA-10 WiFi Adapter (optional accessory). This lets you stream music wirelessly via a router from network components such as a PC or NAS
  • Connection for YBA-11 Bluetooth Wireless Adapter
    This AV receiver provide a DC-out connection for the YBA-11 Bluetooth Wireless Adapter (optional accessory). You'll be able to stream music wirelessly from a Bluetooth-capable smartphone, tablet or PC, without a WiFi environment
  • HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker
    CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers
  • Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging
    The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is “pushed” toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound
  • Compressed Music Enhancer
    When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should
  • Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
    Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialogue and vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials, and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening, when you do not want to disturb others
  • ECO mode lowers power consumption by 20%*
    Yamaha’s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu
    • * Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement)
  • Selectable Auto Power Down
    Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours
  • Low Standby Power Consumption
    Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.1 W in IR Standby mode (1 W in HDMI Standby Through mode, 2 W in Network Standby mode)

          Comments about Yamaha Black 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver:

          After much searching for a receiver that would fit in a small cabinet space in our RV, the Yamaha RX-S600 appeared. Only a little cutting out of the back of the cabinet and it slid right in and the door could close. Instead of miserable TV speakers we now have nice in-ceiling sound and hook ups for blue ray and satellite TV! Never have liked Yamaha remote controls, but small inconvenience. Thank you Yamaha.

          Best Uses

          • Basic Systems
          • Home Theater
          • Smaller Rooms

          Comments about Yamaha Black 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver:

          If you are looking at a mid to higher level performance system for a smaller entertainment space (room and shelf), this product fits the bill.

          A couple of nice features are included (YPAO speaker setup and tablet/smart phone integration) which add value in the setup and operation process of this device. YPAO allowed me to troubleshoot incorrect speaker setup and refine my room acoustics between surround sparkers; the smart app once connected to a wireless access point allows for visual change of use in HDMI, audio output, volume and other features in a free downloadable app.

          You can easily integrate up to five HDMI sources and preconfigure their use pretty easily. Those with high end HD TV's will like the pass through feature in standby mode that permits the TV audio to be heard without running the AV and surround sound speaker system. This unit is ready for 4K and 3D pass through for future TV upgrades you might consider.

          I found the software update a nice must have to address any tweaks to the software found by Yamaha. I added a TP-LINK router to clone to my home wireless for all the devices which are not near a wired ethernet connection.

          My only mark down is the remote and overall system power. I chose to add a third party Harmony 650 remote to control the devices in a simple one touch way to activate TV, DVD, Blue Ray, Apple TV and either camera or iPod functions and settings automatically. This made it easier for my wife to control the system and any activity she wants when I'm away. The power is good for smaller spaces (my 25 x 20 room is fine) - but may challenge some larger theater spaces where you might consider a higher output unit with more speakers or more volume.

          All in all, this unit met my expectations for function and performance at a competitive price.

          Nice Compact receiver

          About Me Tech Savvy

          Pros

          • Compact

          Cons

          • No Pre-outs

          Best Uses

          • Living Room

          Comments about Yamaha Black 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver:

          I'm basically using this as 3.1 sound system for living room with Roku, Directv and bluray attached. Fits in the cabinet very well and looks and sounds great. It is not the receiver to rock a larger room but very nice and what you would expect from Yamaha.

          I wish it had pre-out to drive an amp. I really don't need all the analog inputs BTW in 2014.

            We have a medium size family room and use this for cable TV, DVD/Blu Ray and Pandora. All of which sound GREAT! The added bonus is the smaller form factor.

            All in all this exceeded my expectations!
