Take your home theater experience to new heights (and depths) with the Yamaha BRX-610 5.1-Channel A/V Receiver. This 1080p, 3D-compatible A/V receiver offers amplification for five channels of audio and has a built-in Blu-ray disc player. Once you connect it to a 3D monitor and pop in a 3D Blu-ray title, you might start feeling like you're in your favorite movies, not just watching them!

One very useful feature of this receiver is that it effectively gives you two devices in one, eliminating the space needed for both an A/V receiver and a disc player. Of course, it supports advanced lossless audio technologies Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio for unsurpassed surround sound, as well as Audio Return Channel to reduce the need for an additional cable for audio signals.

This receiver is network-ready, meaning you can connect it to an existing network to take advantage of a slew of interactive features. For one, you can access BD Live bonus contents and see online videos using YouTube's Leanback platform. With BONUSVIEW, you can view two video sources at once. So for example, you could see filmmaker commentary in a smaller window while a movie is playing. It's also DLNA certified, so if you have music and video files on your network PC that you want to enjoy through your home theater, no problem! You can share them easily over the network. One more handy feature is the USB port, which provides an all-digital connection for your iPod, iPhone, or other USB device. And finally, navigation is made seamless with the on-screen GUI and simple remote control.

5.1-Channel Receiver With Blu-ray Disc Player
The BRX-610 is an A/V receiver that delivers 80 watts of power to the front, center and surround channels plus 100 watts to the subwoofer for a total of 500 watts or power and hard-hitting bass. With a built-in Blu-ray disc player, you can enjoy movies with stunning picture quality without the need for a separate component
Supports Playback of Blu-ray 3D
The Blu-ray 3D format lets you experience the thrilling visual effects of 3D movies right in your own living room. When you connect the receiver to a 3D monitor and insert a 3D disc, you're ready to jump head-first into the next dimension of home entertainment
Compatible With Advanced Surround Sound Formats
This receiver supports lossless audio technologies Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, so you can get the full effect of multi-channel movie soundtracks
1080p-Compatible HDMI With ARC
The HDMI output supports Audio Return Channel (ARC), so you don't need an extra optical cable to hear the sound from your TV
Network Functionality for Unlimited Options
When you connect the receiver to your home Internet connection, you can enjoy an even greater scope of entertainment sources without limiting yourself to a disc collection. Online connectivity gives you access to privileged extras available for many Blu-ray titles with BD Live like games, quizzes and filmmaker chats related to your movie. This receiver also supports YouTube Leanback, which is the familiar video powerhouse's TV-friendly interface. You can easily browse user videos right on the screen of your HDTV and receive recommendations based on your viewing history. Plus, you can access music stored on a PC using the network connection since it is DLNA certified
Digital USB Connection for iPod & iPhone
The USB terminal on the front panel makes it easy to plug in your iPod or iPhone. The digital signal from the device is transmitted directly, so noise interference is minimized and sound quality is much improved. Using the same port, you can also connect a USB memory device to playback stored music and videos
Space-Saving Convenience
This two-in-one unit takes up less space than you would need for both an A/V receiver and Blu-ray disc player, effectively trimming the size of your home theater setup
On-Screen GUI
The on-screen graphical user interface (GUI) is easy to understand and easy to use, which is important to ensure any home theater runs smoothly. The system provides you with an Initial Wizard for easy system setup, and later provides Home and Media menus for browsing and playing all of your sources
HDMI CEC Functionality
When connected to a CEC-compatible TV, the BRX-610 will turn on and off together with the TV. You can then use your television's remote to control the volume. This function also provides advanced functionality with other components
Comprehensive Remote Control Unit
The remote control gives you complete command of all receiver and Blu-ray disc player functions, as well as controlling the on-screen menu

    Comments about Yamaha BRX-610 5.1-Channel Network A/V Receiver:

    So I bought this through woot for a great price because I wanted to upgrade to Bluray without having to buy a unit with a bunch of speakers that I don't need.

    Pros: great picture and easy setup. Mp4 support is nice and will play right off a thumb drive. IPod support is cool with stop, pause, forward and reverse and play. It is also a small form factor so it fits in small spaces.

    Cons: Netflix migh as well not be installed. I haven't been able to watch more than ten minutes of film streaming from Netflix. I have 6 other devices in my house that can stream without any problems so it isn't my network. I upgraded the the firmware to no avail. Also Yamaha's website doesn't seem to have a way to open a support case for these devices.

    As of right now I wouldn't recommend this to any serious movie enthusiast especially one that wants to enjoy Netflix on their Bluray player.
