All month long, Amazon will be discounting a variety of audio items. We've spent the last week combing through speakers and components, in search of the best bargains available during this period.
The latest must-see sale item is the Yamaha RX-V573 7.1-Channel Network AV Receiver. We like this receiver because it would make an excellent AV hub, with 4K video pass-through, 3D video pass-through with Audio Return Channel (ARC), and wireless streaming via Apple AirPlay. However we also love it because it's currently on sale!
Through the end of this month, Amazon will be selling the RX-V573 for just $379.95. Since the unit is typically priced at $549.95, this is a pretty nice deal. Amazon is also offering to ship the receiver for free. Find out more about this price and this component on Amazon's product page:
As mentioned, this 7.1-channel receiver has a lot of the features that you'd want to find in a new home theater purchase. Besides the aforementioned perks, it has seven discreet assignable amplifiers for one zone and the ability to bi-amp and double power to main speakers. Of course, you could also just provide audio to a second zone.
Other features include four HDMI inputs, a Virtual Presence Speaker function, YPAO system calibration, HDMI switching, four SCENE mode buttons, and CINEMA DSP 3D with 17 DSP programs. Naturally, it also supports all sorts of HD Audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio.
The RX-V573 comes packing its own remote or you can opt to use your favorite iOS and Android devices, paired with Yamaha's free controller app.
Just remember that Amazon is only discounting this receiver through the end of the month -- or whenever the retailer runs out of stock. To get that discount, you need to order directly through Amazon. They are the ones offering this sale price, as well as the free shipping. Enjoy!
