More than 500,000 people worldwide have now died from the coronavirus

  More than 500,000 people worldwide have now died from the coronavirus A half-million people have now died from COVID-19 worldwide, and the death toll has doubled in just over seven weeks.That grim milestone – marked Sunday by Johns Hopkins University – is particularly unsettling given warnings by health experts that the pandemic is still in its infancy.

This 7.2-channel AV receiver is about performance with dual HDMI® outputs, Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™, Zone 2, phono input, Wi - Fi ®, YPAO™ with R.S.C. and much more. TSR-7850 7.2-Channel AV Receiver with MusicCast. Overview. Specs. Support.

A/V Receivers have a tradition of being ugly. Great, yes, but ugly nonetheless. Only in once in a while does a manufacturer change things up with something that's a little more stylish. Yamaha's brand new RX-V range joins the Denon HEOS AVR in offering something of a conversation piece. Yamaha has dispensed with the "hearse"-like appearance of yesteryear, and its new models are right up to date in terms of specification. It will even do 8K (whenever that actually becomes a thing).

Unlike in previous years, the company is skipping over the number 5 in the US and concentrating on the RX-V4A and RX-V6A models instead. The $440 (about £335 or AU$610) RX-V4A is a 5.1-channel receiver while the $600 model offers Dolby Atmos compatibility in a seven-channel receiver.

I wasn't expecting to see the RX-V4A and RX-V6A's rounded, glass-like fascias, and my first response was literally "wow!" The hi-res LCD display and centered volume control also look pretty spiffy, offering a level of sophistication not usually seen at this price.

But looks aren't everything and it appears that specs-wise it offers everything an AV enthusiast will need for the foreseeable future. It includes HDMI 2.1 compatibility with built-in features including auto low-latency mode and quick media switching. The receivers will also support longer HDMI cable runs with a bolstered power supply. Yamaha claims its receiver has more 8K HDMI inputs than any other brand, including three on the RX-V6A (making seven inputs in total) and all four inputs on the RX-V4A.

Latest COVID-19 news.The nation's testing for COVID-19 is dropping even as infections remain high and the death toll rises by more than 1,000 a day, a worrisome trend that officials attribute largely to Americans getting discouraged over having to wait hours to get a test and days or weeks to learn the results.

Both models offer Wi-Fi support in addition to the company's MusicCast multiroom system, which can be controlled via Alexa , Google and Siri-enabled devices. It also includes AirPlay 2 and Spotify Connect, though no mention has been made of Bluetooth (it's probably there, just not included in the press release). The receivers also include compatibility with MusicCast Surround which allows wireless MusicCast speakers to be used as surrounds.

Products have taken longer to reach stores in 2020. And in the case of some, like Yamaha, the ranges have been slimmed down considerably or, like Sony , carried on from previous years. I have yet to hear any of the new 2020 models, but I expect the Yamahas will put in a good showing, especially in terms of sonics, build quality and feature counts. I look forward to reviewing the RX-6A in particular so watch this space.
