Shopping for a new home theater receiver shouldn't mean shopping for new furniture to hold it. With its compact chassis and short profile, the Yamaha RX-S600 gives you plenty of horsepower without eating up lots of valuable real estate in your component rack or TV stand. And with 5 channels of power, networking, Apple AirPlay, and plenty of connections, the 'S600 won't short-change you when it comes to features.
When you connect the 'S600 to your home network, you'll open up a world of music choices. With built-in support for Apple AirPlay, you can send music from your iPhone®, iPad®, or computer running iTunes® directly to your receiver for playback. DLNA compatibility means streaming isn't reserved strictly for Apple® users. If you're a Spotify® subscriber, you can stream millions of songs using a smartphone or tablet. There's also on-board support for Pandora® and hundreds of free radio stations worldwide via vTuner. AirPlay requires a wireless home network and a wired connection between the receiver and network, or a wireless connection using the optional Yamaha Wi-Fi adapter.
Even without a network connection, the RX-S600 makes it easy to enjoy digital music from smartphones and tablets. A front-panel USB port offers a direct digital connection for your iPod®, iPhone, or iPad. Not only does this connection offer improved sound quality over your Apple device's processing, it also lets you control the device with the receiver's remote. An MHL/HDMI input lets you connect compatible Android smartphones and tablets to play 1080p video as well as digital tunes. Ever wish your compressed digital music files could sound a little fuller? Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer helps give MP3s and other lossy formats more depth and detail.
Download the free Yamaha A/V Controller app for Apple and Android for easy smartphone or tablet control of your network-connected RX-S600.
As slim as this receiver is, it will still power a 5.1-channel home theater system for room-filling surround sound. If you're only using stereo speakers in your main room, you can use the surround channels to send audio to a second zone. So while your kids are watching a movie in the living room, you can listen to music on Pandora in the bedroom — all powered by the 'S600.
Do you suffer from HTR-phobia — a fear of setting up and operating a home theater receiver? Don't worry. Yamaha continues to make their gear more user-friendly right out of the box. YPAO automatic speaker calibration detects and optimizes your speakers using the included microphone. Just plug it in, follow the on-screen instructions, and let the receiver do the rest. The color on-screen guide is easy to navigate if you need to tweak settings. But if you want an even easier way to control your network-connected 'S600, download Yamaha's free A/V Controller app for Apple and Android. It puts a user-friendly touchscreen controller in the palm of your hand.
Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.
I originally looked into this receiver because of the size of my entertainment center and I wouldnt be able to fit the standard size receivers. This one fits perfect. I have them connected to a klipsh reference premier 440 center channel speaker, two home-made loudspeakers (12"wide horn tweeters, 15" midrange, 12" sub) for the left and right front speakers, polk audio surround bookshelf speakers and a 12" powered subwoofer. The system is great! I set all the speakers to large and the sound quality is amazing. It gets very loud if you want it to. For movies the dts-hd-ma and the dolby-tru-hd is decoded perfect and sound incredible. 2 channel music from the tv and cds also sounds great when using the receiver's Prologic 2. Overall I would recommend this to anyone.
I think some of the people who said this receiver wasnt powerful enough werent using big enough or efficient enough speakers. I have a bluray player with dual hdmi outputs so i have one going straight to the tv for the best possible picture and the other one going to the receiver for the best lossless sound. Everything else such as the cable box which only outputs Dolby Digital I have going into the receiver with the optical ports as hdmi would not make the signal any better.
Pros: Great sound quality Great size
Cons: Only that I prefer receivers that show volume as 0-100 and not as a db rating from -78 to +15 but no big deal.
I bought this tuner to replace an older Yamaha 5.1 tuner that was slowly dying internally. It has a nice slim design that is good for in shelving of entertainment centers. Not only was it easier to setup but it also sounds 10 times better than the old one. Im only an amateur when it comes to A/V equipment, especially with the advancements in technology and i had no problems with this unit at all. Definitely worth the price.
Pros: Easy to set up, great sound capabilities, lots of features, slim design
Cons: Manual is very lengthy, can be confusing for beginners
I had this unit for about a month, connected to Klipsch Quintet 5.0 speakers & Klipsch SW-350 8-Inch 350 Watt Subwoofer. I noticed the Center channel always seemed a bit anemic. I set all the sound and speaker settings manually. I set the EQ identical on all speakers to bring out the mid and high ranges. The speakers were set to Small and added the Sub with the recommended Klipsch crossover. I measured the distance to all speakers and input that distance manually. You can independently set the gain for each speaker. On all sources the Center speaker never really seemed to pop. It was so bad I had to go and listen to the speaker and watch if the speaker cone was moving. It was but I was not getting the sound you should from a Center speaker. The Center should provide most of the front sound stage with Left and Right providing some depth. The only thing I could do to hear the Center was increase the Gain to +9. This seemed to balance the front sound stage better but I still had to increase the volume to a level that was too high for comfortable listening. I called Klipsch to discuss this and they informed me that the Yamaha is underpowered and will not run the Center speaker with enough wattage for it to work as it should. I was shocked. I know about these things and felt like I did all the investigation needed to ensure this receiver would have enough power. See Cons 4 specs. I replaced the Yamaha with the newer Marantz 1605 and it is night and day sound and picture quality!
Pros: The remote was great. It ran my PS3, Amazon Prime and could make all adjustment quickly. It is not back lit though. Form factor.
Cons: Take a closer look at the Wattage Specs - It is 95 W per channel (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9% THD, 1-ch driven) per Yamaha! With one Channel why in the world would I need to know what a 5.1 system can do for one Channel? Also list is 60 W per channel (6 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.09% THD, 2-ch driven)! This time it is only 6 Ohms into two Channels. The video signal was ok but compared to the Marantz 1605 I replaced this unit with it is night and day. My wife thought I bought a new TV when connected to 1605.
I was looking for something small, and of good quality, and the RX-S600 works nicely. Has just enough connectivity to satisfy my needs. It supports my TV, BD Player, separate HD Tuner, MD player, and Amazon Fire TV.
Pros: Small, adequate inputs, good integration with other components.
Cons: Would have liked one or two more Optical Audio Inputs, but am getting by with analog inputs instead.
I have owned this receiver and had it fully integrated into my system for a few days now. So far I am very impressed with the sound and feature set for such a small receiver. Our usage is primarily AirPlay (which works much better on this device than others I have tried in the past and connects within a few seconds), we use this in conjunction with other AirPlay and hard wired devices to provide the same music throughout the house. We also have this connected via HDMI to a computer for Media Center playback and streaming video access, as well as DVD, TV, and radio listening. So far the only disappointing thing is that the audio output will not output AirPlay content since I was hoping to use that output to go to my garage to provide the same music there as well.
Pros: Short so it easily fits into a TV stand or stereo rack 5 HDMI inputs (1 of which is MHL capable, for smart devices) and 1 ARC (audio return channel for TV audio to come in on with capable TVs) output 1 component audio output AirPlay, Pandora, streaming file access from your computer, USB file playback, iPod playback, and other internet radio stations During all the network playback options the song name and artist are displayed on the front panel, OSD, and the network app More (character li
Cons: The MHL capable HDMI port is on the rear rather than the front panel for easy access The component audio out port will not output AirPlay audio
I only took delivery of this unit a few days ago so still evaluating but based on initial use and impressions I'd give 4.5 stars. It has relatively clean power, a small footprint (which was very important to me for this particular application), with decent features. My only 3 issues so far; no true secondary electable speaker outputs (as others have noted already) that I've found, no built in wifi, and finally the Yamaha AV app seems weak honestly. For what it's worth I'm going to try a wireless to wired $40 repeater adapter to use the wired LAN port for hopefully a more reliable network solution (will let you know).
Pros: 1) bang for the buck in a small footprint unit 2) good compromise - slim profile with decently clean power and features 3) very easy setup 4) Crutchfield service 5) build quality on par with what one expects from Yamaha
Cons: 1) no true secondary speaker selection 2) no built in wifi solution 3) weak smart app
I mainly purchased this product because of the physical small footprint of the unit as well as past experience with Yamaha's receivers. It's packed with features and is a good value for the price. I needed a new receiver with HDMI capabilities and that would fit in a very narrow height space. It works extremely well and is fairly easy to set up and program. Also love the Yamaha YBA-11 Bluetooth interface for my I-phone, works perfectly.
Pros: Small Footprint and features, great sound reproduction. Vey well made and very clean look. The four presets make it very easy for my spouse to operate.
Cons: Could use true secondary selectable speaker outputs.
Quality that is expected of this name brand. Connected to Samsung Smart TV with no issues. Great sound.
Pros: Easy setup. Great sound. Lot of output options
Quality of this set is excellent ... as expected from Yamaha. Apple Air Play is very convenient. We purchased this to replace a JVC 5.1 which didn't have HDMI. It powers a 14 year old Bose Acoustimass 15 system. I thought "Multi Room" mean selectable speakers. We have outdoor speakers on the porch the JVC could select with the surround sound disengaged. This has a preamp output for a secondary channel, but the outside speakers cannot connect direct to their own "post amp" connection. So ... either have a secondary amplifier for your secondary speakers ... or find a different receiver/amp. This one has 5 speaker outputs with the pre amp sub output.
Pros: sound reproduction
Cons: not a true secondary speaker connection as advertised.

Yamaha's Total Purity Concept: The Yamaha RX-S600 AV Receiver incorporates Yamaha's 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. As a result, this AV receiver can provide high-quality sound for your movie & music soundtracks.
Amplifier Assignment: The Yamaha RX-S600 employs assignable amplifiers for surround speakers, front speaker-bi-amp, or Zone 2 connection.
YPAO Technology: This unit employs the YPAO (Yamaha Parametric Acoustic Optimizer), which automatically adjusts the output of the speakers based on placement, performance, and the room's acoustic characteristics. Yamaha's YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters; such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers, and even the volume level; until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room. Using the supplied Optimizer Microphone, YPAO performs the following checks and makes appropriate adjustments to give you the best possible sound from your system:
Note: You can also choose to manually adjust the AV receiver's speaker, crossover, & EQ settings.
Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Yamaha RX-S600 supports the following multi-channel (Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic) decoding formats.
Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the AV receiver via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). Even though the AV receiver will decode 7.1ch surround sound (via HDMI), it will only output 5.1ch surround, because it lacks Surround Back channel speaker outputs.
Surround Parameters: The Yamaha AV receiver offers the following Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS NEO:6 audio adjustments.
Cinema DSP Soundfields: Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha Cinema DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent soundfields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects ideally located in these separate soundfields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater. The AV receiver offers 17 Cinema DSP programs for movies, music, and games.
Note: You can change the receiver's Cinema DSP effect level (level of the soundfield effect to be added). You can adjust the level of the soundfield effect from -6 dB to +3 dB.
Cinema DSP Modes: The Yamaha RX-S600 AV receiver offers proprietary Yamaha Cinema modes so you can enjoy your movies and music even more in your home; regardless if you are using Presence Speakers, only have a two-channel speaker system, or listening through headphones.
HiFi Sound Modes: The Yamaha RX-S600 offers two HiFi audio modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. These HiFi sound modes lets you play back input sources without any soundfield effect processing. When either of theses modes are enabled, each speaker produces its own channel audio signal (without soundfield processing). When playing back 2-channle sources, such as a CD player, stereo sound is heard from the front speakers. When playing back multichannel sources, the receiver produces unprocessed multichannel surround sound.
Compressed Music Enhancer: Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3, WMA, and AAC. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.
Dynamic Range Control: The Yamaha RX-S600 employs two Dynamic Range Control functions.
Bass Management: The Yamaha RX-S600 AV receiver provides the following Bass Management settings.
Volume Setup: The Yamaha RX-S600 allows you to customize the receiver's volume levels.

Hi - unfortunately no, this unit doesn't support Bluetooth or streaming content wirelessly to speakers. It's a limitation which Yamaha has another receiver for however in a larger box and for me footprint was paramount given application, so it was a compromise. Since purchasing the S600 I'm finding it somewhat underpowered relative to what I was anticipating given I'm driving very sensitive and efficient Klipsch fronts. But even with that overall I'm still very pleased with the purchase and would recommend. Good luck! [ HENRY Jun 13, 2014 ]
No, not by itself. Wireless speakers will use something like Bluetooth or other wireless technology. The receiver doesn't have any standard wireless capability built-in. You would need some type of wireless adapter that would convert either a line level or speaker level output from the receiver to the appropriate wireless technology that the wireless speakers use. Yamaha makes a couple of wireless adapters, and your wireless speaker manufacturer may be able to supply one as well. It can be done with the proper adapters. [ Robert Jun 13, 2014 ]
No, it does not. It uses strictly wired connections. [ Aaron Jun 13, 2014 ]
I'm not sure how to test for this setup. I have the optical hooked to my tv and an hdmi hooked to the tv. I have a Yamaha blue ray and a 5.1 bose connected as well. I'm not well versed in the wiring/setup. I finally got it all to work except the Bluetooth music from my wifes iphone. Sorry, but I don't know Ralph [ RALPH Mar 21, 2014 ]
Brandon, Not sure what you're asking but, I've got the Dish/blu-ray/Apple HDMI'd straight to TV and audio optical going from TV to receiver. Works great like this. Good receiver. I upgraded from an Onkyo and glad I did. [ James Mar 21, 2014 ]
