Like all Home Cinema amps, this unit ideally needs at least two inches of free air space above it, in order to ventilate properly.
Music streaming via wire is far more reliable than via Wi-Fi. If you can't run an Ethernet cable from your router to this unit, then simply buy a pair of mains Ethernet extenders from Amazon for around 25. They plug into your mains sockets and use the mains wiring in your house as an Ethernet cable - they are brilliant!
Apple AirPlay allows the wireless streaming of music from an iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch to this unit, as long as this unit is connected to the router in your house.
Bluetooth only works reliably if both the sending and receiving units are in the same room.
This product carries a free 3 year warranty, if you register it on-line at the manufacturer's website.

What Hi-Fi's "Best home cinema amplifier 1000-2000" 2016-2017

Take the excellent Yamaha Aventage RX-A1050 give it Dolby Atmos up to 5.1.2, plus DTS:X, plus the all important HDCP2.2 (needed for HDTV), plus support for HDR and BT.2020, plus Bluetooth, - and you've got the brand new, award winning RX-A1060 !

Of course, the 1060 still gives you all the features that have made the 1050 such a run-away success this year - so you get high quality ESS DACs,  24 bit / 192 kHz streaming, plus support for DSD up to 5.6MHz, 2nd zone HDMI switching, 8 x HDMI inputs (all with HDMI 2.0a and 7 with HDCP2.2) plus twin HDMI outputs (both with HDCP2.2) plus 7 x 170 watts, plus 4K upscaling, plus networking, plus HDMI pass-through, plus HDMI audio return, plus Apple AirPlay, plus Napster, plus Spotify Connect (Premium account required) plus an ultra rigid 5th foot, plus a generous 3 year warranty. If you have an Android phone, an iPhone, iPod iTouch or iPad and have the 1050 connected to your home network, you can use Yamaha's excellent free App to stream music straight from your phone to the amp - wirelessly! You can even use the App to turn your smartphone into a multi-function remote control.

What you also get if you buy this Yamaha amp (or indeed most other of the 2016 / 2017 Yamaha amps) is the company's clever new multi-room solution called MusicCast. The idea is that Yamaha units equipped with MusicCast (e.g. the latest Yamaha soundbars and Bluetooth speakers) can be placed in different rooms of the house and made to 'talk to each other' wirelessly and all be controlled independently via an excellent free Yamaha App. This means that virtually any music content (even LPs!) can be streamed anywhere in the house, so that it simultaneously plays in every room. Or, you can have different sources, playing in different rooms, at different volumes. And all controlled by your smartphone / tablet. Very simple, very effective and totally exclusive to Yamaha, although, to be fair, other makes do have equivalent alternatives (eg Denon's excellent HEOS system).
