Released October, 2010
The Pros:Lots of power output - more than enough for most setups. Looks good - features a sleek black, retro aesthetic. Lots of options and features for those who like to get the most out of their music collection.
The Cons:White remote control - doesn't match the receiver. Only compatible with iPods and Bluetooth devices through the purchase of additional accessories. The power management switch is located on the back of the unit - hard to access.

And in addition to supporting Zone 2 technology, it also adds along a second remote that makes it easy for controlling the main receiver from another zone. Like its predecessors, the receiver is compatible with Yamaha’s iPod and Bluetooth Wireless docking stations / receivers. Plus it also supports A+B speaker selection and relies on advanced audio technology to eliminate resonance, reduce distortion, and ensure the audio is always crisp and clean.
