Yamaha's YHT-494 is the latest home theater-in-a-box from the company that's as well known for their home theater systems as their high-end gear.  It's not optimal for your main theater of course, but as far as HTiB's go, the 494 may be a great pickup for a secondary viewing room or game room.

The YHT-494 features a 5.1 channel receiver with 600 watts of total power.  It boasts four HDMI 1.4 inputs compatible with Deep Color, x.v. Color and high refresh rates and Quad-Field Cinema DSP that offers 17 different surround sound programs.

In addition to a receiver, you'll get a sound bar which recreates the right, left and center channels.  It's just two inches high and has adjustable feet that let it fit into a variety of setups.  You'll also get a pair of satellite speakers and a 100 watt Advanced YST subwoofer.

The YHT-494 is available now from authorized dealers at an MSRP of $549.
