You'll find front-panel USB on all five, while the top three sport AirPlay, smartphone control and more.

Five new HTiB systems are launching from Yamaha this May, all of which offer up 100 watt subwoofers, decoding of the usual HD audio formats and YPAO system calibration. All five give you ECO mode which reduces power consumption and all pack five speakers with 2-way drivers.

The higher end systems – the YHT-597BL, 797BL and 897BL – all offer Apple AirPlay for simple communication between your iPhone or iPad and your receiver. They also have the ability to be controlled by Yamaha's Kindle Fire, iOS or Android app.

Yamaha's new home theater system line launches in May with prices ranging from $449 to $849.
