    Pioneer XC-HM86 reviews

    XC-HM86 Stereo 50W Network Amplifier is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from All-in-one music solution The only things it's missing that I wish it had are AptX (HD or LL) and a line/preamp output. Otherwise a great little network receiver. Streams Tidal, Pandora, and Spotify. Chromecast and Airplay are built in (with firmware update). Chromecast stutters a bit, but I think that might be something I can fix by messing around with the QoS settings on my router.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I've only had the unit for a few weeks but so far, so good. The networking is fast and solid and the sound is superb.
