Yamaha New AV Receiver NeoHD (YMC-500) - Cool New Gadgets and Gizmos Blog
Cool New AV Recever NeoHD (YMC) By Yamaha
Yamaha clumsily calls neoHD a "media connector," which makes it sounds like just part of the home-theater equation. NeoHD really is a streamlined AV receiver with more emphasis on "V" than "A." It's a small box with a zillion inputs—3 HDMI, 2 component, 1 composite, both optical and coax digital audio, and a USB port—and a few choice outputs. In short NeoHD support for media on USB disks, but you can add on an iPod dock or a Bluetooth stereo receiver.

There's an amp to drive your own 5.1 surround-sound speaker set, or a 2.1 system that you can buy bundled with it that uses a virtual surround sound. There are IR blasters for TiVo, cable boxes. So that everything can be run and managed through the system. NeoHD got a super-simplified remote. The basic neoHD receiver, the YMC-500, costs $600 & $800 for YMC-500 with 2.1 speakers thrown in.
