The RXS601 is a slim and compact 5.1-channel networked AV receiver with Bluetooth and Yamaha's MusicCast technology. It features 6 HDMI inputs with 4K Ultra HD pass-through support, wireless and wired networking and app control. 

Yamaha's Virtual CINEMA DSP helps to reproduce a virtual surround sound without the need for rear satellite speakers. While with Virtual CINEMA FRONT, an additional pair of surrounds can be placed at the front as well, allowing you to simplify the layout of your room for a great deal more flexibility. Yamaha's exclusive 'Extra Bass' technology also manages to enhance the lower frequencies of your satellites and subwoofer for a richer and more powerful bass performance. 

The RXS601 also features Yamaha's sophisticated YPAO multi-point room calibration system, with a microphone to measure all the speakers in your room and adjust output for the best sound. All of these features ensure the Yamaha RXS601 delivers film soundtracks with authority and detail and the natural sound that we've come to expect from Yamaha receivers. Sound field programs mimic multiple music venues, bringing extra atmosphere to games or giving movies the sound the director intended for cinema viewing. 

Bluetooth connection means you have wireless playback from your smartphone or tablet. Yamaha Compressed Music Enhancer delivers vivid and lively sound quality from Bluetooth audio. The USB port on the front panel provides easy and direct digital iPod/iPhone connectivity or playback of music files letting you fully enjoy your home theatre with simplicy and ease. 

The RXS601 also incorporates MusicCast, Yamaha's latest development in network audio. You can use all your MusicCast products together or separately, and control them all from one intuitive app. MusicCast is available in soundbars, wireless speakers, AV Receivers and HiFi systems across the Yamaha range. You can mix and match devices, and expand your MusicCast system as time goes on.
