Like all Home Cinema amps, this unit ideally needs at least two inches of free air space above it, in order to ventilate properly.
Music streaming via wire is far more reliable than via Wi-Fi. If you can't run an Ethernet cable from your router to this unit, then simply buy a pair of mains Ethernet extenders from Amazon for around 25. They plug into your mains sockets and use the mains wiring in your house as an Ethernet cable - they are brilliant!
Apple AirPlay allows the wireless streaming of music from an iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch to this unit, as long as this unit is connected to the router in your house.
Bluetooth only works reliably if both the sending and receiving units are in the same room.
This product carries a free 3 year warranty, if you register it on-line at the manufacturer's website.

Yamaha RX-A860 Aventage 7.2 network receiver
Slightly scaled down version of the award winning RX-A1060 - at a considerable saving !

Imagine Yamaha's brilliant, What Hi-Fi award winning RX-A1060 (SRP 1099) but with slightly fewer inputs, a slightly lower spec DAC and slightly less power - that's the RX-A860 ! The two models are very close.

The reason the 860's predecessor (the RX-A850) was so popular and went on to win a major audio award, was that it gave customers all the important features of the next model up, but at a significantly lower price. The new 860 looks set to follow in the 850's footsteps, because its spec is not a million miles away from the new 1060, but the 1060 costs a full 200 more, which is twice what the gap was between the old 850 and 1050. So the RX-A860 gives you Dolby Atmos up to 5.1.2, plus DTS:X, plus 8 x HDMI inputs (all with HDMI 2.0a (HDR) and three with HDCP2.2) plus twin HDMI outputs (both with HDCP2.2) plus Bluetooth, plus ultra high quality DACs, plus 24 bit / 192 kHz streaming, plus support for DSD up to 5.6MHz, plus 2nd zone HDMI switching, plus 7 x 160 watts, plus 4K upscaling, plus networking, plus HDMI pass-through, plus HDMI audio return, plus Apple AirPlay, plus Napster, plus Spotify Connect (Premium account required), plus an ultra rigid 5th foot, plus a generous 3 year warranty. If you have an Android phone, an iPhone or an iPad and have the 860 connected to your home network, you can use Yamaha's excellent free App to stream music straight from your phone to the 860 - wirelessly! You can even use the App to turn your smartphone into a remote control for this amp.

What you also get if you buy this amp (or most other 2016 / 2017 Yamaha models) is the company's brilliant new multi-room solution called MusicCast. The idea is that Yamaha units equipped with MusicCast (e.g. the latest Yamaha soundbars and Bluetooth speakers) can be placed in different rooms of the house and made to 'talk to each other' wirelessly and all be controlled independently via an excellent free Yamaha App. This means that virtually any music content (even LPs!) can be streamed anywhere in the house, so that it simultaneously plays in every room. Or, you can have different sources, playing in different rooms, at different volumes. And all controlled by your smartphone / tablet. Very simple, very effective and totally exclusive to Yamaha !
