I have a Yamaha, that I bought about 3 years ago, like it very much. I have been browsing the new stereo receivers and noticed that a good portion of them have an ethernet connection. I haven't dug deep yet but what are the benefits of them? My entire house has a hardwired network as I have a 5 port hub at the entertainment center to connect my TV, Sat Tv, BluRay, HTPC.
So when I buy a new one I can plug the receiver into the network.
Any comments, questions or whatever would be appreciated.
