Newegg is currently offering the Yamaha RX-S601 5.1-Channel Slimline Network A/V Receiver for $339.95 shipped when you add it to your cart. Normally selling for $600 at Adorama, B&H and Crutchfield, that saves you $260 and beats our previous mention by $40. With AirPlay built-in, this 5.1-Channel receiver also sports six HDMI inputs, 4K UHD passthrough and Dolby Atmos support. Yamaha’s Slimline receiver has a more compact form-factor and packs all the functionality of your average model without the added bulk. It carries a 4.3/5 star rating.
