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.

Yamaha RX-A870 Aventage 7.2 network receiver
Scaled down version of the fantastic RX-A1070 !

Imagine Yamaha's brilliant, RX-A860 give it improved streaming options with the addition of Tidal, support for the latest HDR video formats (Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log Gamma), a Bluetooth output and a DAB/DAB+ tuner  - that's the RX-A870.

The reason the 870's predecessor (the RX-A860) was so popular was that it gave customers many of the important features of the next model up, but at a lower price. The new 870 is a similar proposition, it gives you Dolby Atmos up to 5.1.2, plus DTS:X, plus 8 x HDMI inputs (all with HDMI 2.0a (HDR) and three with HDCP2.2) plus twin HDMI outputs (both with HDCP2.2) plus Bluetooth, plus ultra high quality DACs, plus 24 bit / 192 kHz streaming, plus support for DSD up to 5.6MHz, plus 2nd zone HDMI switching, plus 7 x 160 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 or an iPad and have the 870 connected to your home network, you can use Yamaha's excellent free App to stream music straight from your phone to the 870 - wirelessly! You can even use the App to turn your smartphone into a remote control for this amp.

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).
