This is an amazing receiver, offering a full slate of features equivalent to those offered by any of their competitors. The 4K pass-through puts the Yamaha ahead of many on the market. The sound is dynamic and the video performance is superb.
Don't you often wonder why expensive televisions are sold with speakers that sound like they're made of tissue paper and powered by a cell phone? No matter what the price of the set, it always seems that sound quality receives little of the design budget. This results in predictable audio quality – tinny, prone to distortion, and adequate only for the most basic of dialogue. The good news is that there ARE alternatives! Pinnacle Speakers offers an array of high quality powered sound bars, surround speakers, subwoofers, and in-wall/in-ceiling speakers that can bring your television's sound to life!
I'm currently using a Yamaha A-S500 integrated amp to drive my Mirage Omni 250 towers. They mate well together. I also have an HK-3490 stereo receiver. I want to upgrade my current speakers to a pair of Tannoy DC6T/DC6T SE. Would either of my electronics mate well with the Tannoys? If not, how about the Monitor Audio Silver RX-6? These are currently the only speakers I'm considering. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Glenn became involved with audio electronics and speaker building under the tutelage of the station engineer for the local public radio station in Baton Rouge, LA. During college, he earned pocket change by modifying Dynaco and other vacuum tube electronics. When the compact disc came out, he (foolishly) sold his vinyl collection and spent the next decades trying to recover the magic that was lost. Finally, with the implementation of hard-drive based digital music files, the joy of music has been "recovered". Glenn's daughter inherited his love of music and completed her bachelors and masters degrees in violin performance! Glenn is a safety consultant and continued to pursue better and better home audio and home theater performance. Although he has not enjoyed vinyl for many years, he is still of the opinion that only the very best digital systems can compete with a good phonograph record. Glenn's musical tastes are very broad…. electronica (Lords of Acid, Republica, & African Head Charge), popular music (including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry & LMFAO), small ensemble music (Atlantic Brass Quintet and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields), large orchestra music, vocalists, jazz, rap and anything not heard before. His A/V environments are constantly changing, but include multiple brands of speakers, power amplifiers, preamplifiers and DACs along with his Oppo BD93.
