Yamaha NeoHD

Yamaha NeoHD

It might not be the all-in-one home theater box of your dreams, but the new Yamaha NeoHD ($600-$800) is certainly a step in the right direction. This streamlined receiver features three HDMI, two component, one composite, and both optical and digital audio inputs for hooking up your gear, along with an on-screen menu system — no more silly front panel LEDs — to control it all via a simplified remote. It also packs a 5.1-capable amp for powering speakers of your choice, IR blasters for controlling all the connected gadgets, and Wi-Fi in the more upscale model. [via]

  • AUX Classic Speaker System

    This audiophile-worthy 2.1 speaker system is pricey, but it has the performance to back it up. To put it another way, your Bose SoundDock is a Honda, and the AUX Classic is a Ferrari. Made in Italy by concert sound experts Outline, the system features a unique, transforming case that lets you position the speakers in a number of ways. In our month of testing, we couldn't believe how lively and easy to listen to the compact system was. The AUX is easily the best speaker system of this size we've ever heard. The system uses no sound trickery, naturally reproducing essential frequencies (from just below 30hz to just over 18khz) thanks to its built-in 400 watt amp and solid wood bass reflex design. The speakers are also completely self powered, so they're a great partner for your AirPort Express or Sonos setup. The AUX classic is available in Competition Red ($2,250), Piano Black ($1,500; shown), Alpine White ($1,500), Leather ($3,000) and, our favorite, Stage Black ($1,300).
