Like graduate salesmen, more and more tech goods are expected to go far and beyond what they initially signed up for: smartphones can now start your car, fridges can talk, and kettles turn themselves on to boil.

Even with budget AV amplifiers a number of features are becoming almost mandatory requisitions: wi-fi, DLNA streaming, hi-res audio support… all features of the Denon AVR-X1300W (£300), for example.

The Yamaha RX-V381, however, flies in the face of all that. This is a back to basics 70 watts-per-channel 5.1 surround amplifier with Bluetooth and an FM/AM tuner.

No Spotify Connect. No Dolby Atmos. Not even Yamaha’s MusicCast multiroom technology.
