They all offer connectivity to Spotify, Pandora and vTuner (Internet Radio).

All four models offer Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio HD audio decoding. Additionally, all models are compatible with the Yamaha AV Controller App which allows the receiver to be controlled by iOS and Android devices.

All models also include Yamaha's YPAO automatic calibration system and Yamaha's Cinema Front technology that will simulate surround sound when all of the speakers are placed at the front of the room.
