After reading this review, It would be interesting to hear this receiver as the “hub” of a high end audio system. Could it be a good alternative to separates?

The new Yamaha A line suffers from many annoying bugs, like YPAO speaker distance error if more than 3 measurement points are used. Gene from Audioholics did some initial testing on the A6A and some of the channels scored a poor 65dB of SINAD, far below CD quality requirements of 96dB. I've listened to the A6A and to the Onkyo RX50, post YPAO and Dirac calib, and the RX50 which costs a third of the price, sounded way better!
