Is that AV cabinet looking a little crowded? Try consolidating. There are a few manufacturers packing multiple functions into one product. And as luck would have it, one of those unique items is our Friday Hot Deal.
For today only (Friday, August 10, 2012), Woot is selling the Yamaha BRX-610 Receiver/Blu-ray combo for just $279.99. This is a brand new item, which normally sells for $549.95. That means you can save 49 percent on this purchase. Just remember that you’ll need to kick in an extra $5 for shipping.
Why would you want the BRX-610? Because it combines receiver functions and a 3D Blu-ray player under one chassis. It has support for a 5.1-channel speaker setup (sorry 7.1ers!), and can play 3D and 2D Blu-rays, as well as DVDs and CDs. If you’re sick of your old collection, hook the unit up to your home network and start streaming the likes of Netflix, YouTube, and FM radio.
On the receiver side, the BRX-610 can deliver a total of 500 watts of power, has support for Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and is 1080p-compatible HDMI with Audio Return Channel. Other features include a front-panel USB port, CEC support, and an on-screen GUI.
Remember that this is a Woot deal, which means you’ll have to kick in a few extra bucks for shipping. It also means that this deal will only run through today (Friday, August 10, 2012) or whenever the retailer runs out of stock.
