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]
