The Kenwood VRS-N8100 is a 6.1 channel A/V control center with networking capabilities. This receiver is designed to seamlessly merge your computer with your entertainment system using a rear-panel Ethernet connector, allowing you to easily stream audio and video files from your computer.  If you plug your games console into the front A/V input it will automatically select that input and proper surround sound processing when you turn on the console. Also, the dual source function lets someone play video games using the Dolby Surround headphone output while the rest of the family enjoys music through the speakers. There are plenty of inputs for many components and it supports Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES 96/24 surround sound, as well as Dolby Pro Logic IIx which transforms stereo music sources into 6.1 channel surround. Each of the 6 channels has 130 watts of power giving you plenty of output power.
