    i see some of the lower yamahas are now cheap. Power doesnt matter cause i have multiple amps for main/subs.

    What i would like is spotify, pandora, etc on new receiver instead of plugging my phone in the aux jack of the unit.

    Do they make sucha thing?

    Yamaha RX-A870 is the lowest one to go for. The 770 lacks pre-outs.

    I believe BlueTooth is now built-in. Earlier models required a dongle.

    I said receiver. Doesnt need to be receiver. Can be integrated amp

    Whatever it is has to have inputs and preouts for my amps

    I don't think the Yamaha integrated amps have what you are looking for. (Spotify, Pandora)

    The Aventage receivers do, so long as you steer clear of models below the 870.

    I thought the ā€œNā€ models had that type of ability . Network receivers

    Possibly. I'm not familiar with them. I have an Aventage receiver.

    What's your budget? Are you opposed to a separate streaming device and pre-amp?

    Im not opposed but if im going to buy seperate device to stream i can just do that now. Im trying to move toward a real 2 channel system versus the ht pre/pro i have. Im running a NAD M15 in stereo.

    If your going true 2-channel, go all the way. ;) Pre, power, DAC, streamer. Could even use something like a Rasberry Pi for source/streamer.
