7.2-channel AV receiver with advanced features and enhanced functionality, including two HDMI® outputs and both wireless MusicCast Surround speakers & multi-room audio capabilities.

Yamaha AV receivers feature fully discrete power amplifiers to minimise distortion and adopt independent pure power supplies for the analogue and digital circuitry. They also feature ultra-high performance with 384 kHz / 32-bit DACs, also with Independent power supplies, for reproducing absolutely all the audio in High Resolution sound sources without noise. A new high sound quality IC is employed for volume control and large heat sinks suppress vibration.

YPAO-R.S.C. analyses room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections and deliver studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalisation, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.

Combine this AV receiver with the MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless streaming speaker and enjoy the amazing convenience of creating a home theatre with wireless rear speakers. What’s more, you get stunningly realistic sound with a clean, clutter-free setup. Easily turn your current living room into a special entertainment environment where you can fully enjoy movies and music.

Since the RX-V685 has two HDMI output terminals, simultaneous connection to the TV and LCD projector is possible. Which means you can use your TV as usual but use the projector for your favourite movies and special programming — easily and without having to change any connections. The built-in HDMI functionality is of the latest specifications, corresponding also to HDR (Dolby Vision Compatible, Hybrid Log-Gamma), 4K / 60p passthrough & 4K upscaling

Usefully the RXV-685 also has a MM turntable input so you can enjoy your vinyl with ease. Available in both black and titanium silver finish options
