With voice integration, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos compatibility and renowned Yamaha sound, the Yamaha RXV685 leads the field.

The voice of the future – control by Alexa

With Alexa voice control integration, if you want something, all you have to do is ask. Working in conjunction with Yamaha’s MusicCast system, the RXV685 will effortlessly play your music requests. Compatible with Amazon’s range of voice control devices, the RXV685 blends seamlessly with your smart home system.

Surround sound, untied
New to this year’s RX-V series is the option to add wireless rear speakers. Combine this receiver with the Yamaha MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 speakers and you can leave aside speaker cable connections. Perfect if you have a solid floor and struggle to hide speaker cable or if you simply want a cleaner style, wireless surround speakers cut down on the clutter (Coming soon via firmare update).

See your video at its best – Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG compatible HDMI interface
Making sure you get the best from 4K streaming, UHD Blu-ray and 4K broadcasts, the RXV685 is compatible with Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma). All five inputs are compatible, giving you all the input flexibility you could ask for. Thanks to twin HDMI outputs you can connect both a TV and projector – letting you easily switch between the two for everyday viewing and sports/movie nights.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for true cinema sound
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

From Hi-Res Audio playback…
Burr Brown 384kHz/32-bit DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) are at the heart of this impressive Yamaha AVR and imbue it with powerful processing. The DACs not only provide punchy and lifelike sound but also facilitate the playback of many High Resolution audio formats. The RXV685 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD up to 11.2 MHz and WAV/AIFF up to 192kHz-32-bit for exceptional sound quality.

To the joys of vinyl
Audio inputs include an MM phono connection for your turntable as well as three RCA phono inputs at the back for a CD player, streamer and other music source. At the front, there’s a 3.5mm input that’s ideal for an MP3 player. A USB socket is also at hand for connecting your USB media stick and playing back digital music files.

The best sound in your room with YPAO-R.S.C
YPAO-R.S.C. stands for Reflected Sound Control and adapts the RXV685 to get the very best sound quality in your room. By measuring reflected sound it can make corrections via the DSP (Digital Sound Processor) to make sure the sound is as natural as possible. Even better, all this is done at the touch of a button and takes no extra effort to achieve.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXV685 is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast you can control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or even Amazon Alexa by voice. Play the same music on all the components or split the sound into different zones for different moods in each room; the choice is yours. The MusicCast CONTROLLER app lets you operate the system around your home and change settings quickly and easily.

Stream the best music services
Compatible with Spotify Premium, Pandora, Napster, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz, the RXV685 is fully equipped for your favourite music streaming service. With Tidal and Qobuz already offering higher resolution playback, it’s now possible to find a streaming service that at least matches the quality of CD and, in some cases, even improves upon it.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
As well as MusicCast, the RXV685 also has built-in Apple AirPlay, letting you stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. You can also view data such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen display. *Some models don't support album art display. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you also have Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Whatever your music or video source, the Yamaha RXV685 provides a masterful entertainment hub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha RXV685 Great price and a fantastic service I spoke with Paul and gave him a list of features I needed from a new av amplifier, he was very knowledgable and within 10 minutes he knew actually the make and model that was perfect for my needs. i ordered it the next and it was delivered the following day. The install and setup was very easy and quick and I have enjoyed every moment using it since.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality product with great sound Bought just a few weeks ago and was impressed with the automated setup app and the remote app for IOS (iPad and IPhone). The supplied remote control is comprehensive and programmable. Overall although over my original budget I’m glad I purchased. Working with Sony 4K TV, Youview, Virgin TiVo, Apple 4K TV and Blu-ray player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not sure what happened... Short story: Refurb house, wanted to upgrade sound system to match. Now I asked a good friend to come and give an opinion, and so I bought ceiling speakers, and connected them up to my old pro logic system. Sounded OK, was happy. Said friend came round, and commented that they sounded rubbish, and that I should buy an amp. I said no, but then there on his phone was a list of amplifiers with modern tech etc. on them. 2 days later, called R.S. to make the purchase, no stock, and no stock of anything in same price range, and by some witchcraft, I bought this Yamaha Amp (at more than double the price), that I didn't know I needed, with money I didn't know I had. Well I plugged it in (you set it up on a TV, through a VERY simple process), played with lots of settings I am still clueless as to what they do, and BOOM, a sound for which I never imagined possible with Ceiling speakers. I was always of the opinion that an Amp was just that, takes a little bit of sound, and makes it a bigger amount of sound, but I was so badly mistaken. The quality of the sounds coming from these 8" Yamaha ceiling speakers truly blew me away. In Party mode all 5 speakers just fill the room beautifully. Needless to say, I sit in this half finished room for hours on end listening to music, and it's bliss (don't ask my neighbor's opinion). Oh, and when I said it was double the price, in all honesty, it has cost 3 times the price, as it has the facility for 7 speakers, so naturally I have bought another 2 of them too. Honestly, if you like music, or you like your movies, then this is the way forward. Forget your little assistants and their gimiky speakers (I have plenty of them in here too), this is by far the best thing I have bought in this whole refurb (and I now have a bath that fills when I shout at it). I truly love the reproduction of sound that is is capable of. Go on, treat yourself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy to set up Well impressed with the sound which is far superior to my last Onkyo amp. Improved even more after replacing the speakers as well with wharfdale DX2. Only issue was why is the ARC function disabled as a default factory setting?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relatively easy setup, sounds great This was my first receiver, so I was a bit worried about setting everything up, but the instructions are pretty clear and the automatic system setup using a microphone does a good job generating sensible defaults for the settings. In terms of the sound, don't really have another receiver to compare to, but can't complain or say I'm unhappy. Using this with input from TV & for playing Spotify. Ease of use for some of the menus and features could be improved, where especially the UI is quite bad. But you luckily only need to use the first time and then it's fairly rare you'll need to go there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks very impressive I'm sorry but I am not happy with my purchase of the Yamaha RX-V685 as no-one informed me that it had to be set-up using a TV. I do not have a TV in my home cinema on the top floor of our house which is used for both film & digital projection. As an ex-BBC Film Editor, experienced in film and electronics etc (and one a reviewer of such items in various magazine) and the producer of DVD and BD's on the history of film & equipment I was baffled by not being to 'sprint' the amp into life and have only just discovered it has to be set-up using a TV, which do not have in the cinema and aged 82 it too big a struggle to try and get one of our large TV's upstairs, and so my new amp sits there doing nothing! The TV requirement should surely have been mentioned before it was shipped. KInd regards, KW
