Following on from a long line of award-winning legends, the Yamaha RXV681 more than lives up to expectations.
Sockets for all - including your turntable
With six HDMI sockets, including one at the front, the RXV681 has fifty percent more inputs than lower models. For full compatibility with the latest UHD 4K sources, three of them are compatible with HDCP2.2. Audio inputs include an MM phono connection for your turntable - perfect for making this AV receiver the hub of your music as well as movie entertainment.
Ready for DTS:X
DTS:X is the flagship processor from this highly respected tech company. It literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also offers other advantages such as the ability to boost the spatial effect of conventional DTS and easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.
Optimised for Dolby Atmos, you can be amongst the first to experience the wonder of Dolby Atmos in your own home. Producing a multi-dimensional and totally immersive sound, Dolby Atmos has been hailed as the greatest advance in surround sound for 20 years - so don't miss out!
Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Yamaha's digital processing are top quality Burr Brown DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor). These not only provide punchy and lifelike sound but also facilitate the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The RXV681 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.
YPAO-R.S.C for optimal sound in your room
YPAO-R.S.C. stands for Reflected Sound Control and adapts the RXV681 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.
UHD 4K Upscaling
Another great feature with the RXV681 is HDMI and UHD 4K upscaling. This means that, once plugged into your UHD 4K TV, Blu-rays and 1080p games can be upscaled to 4K UHD resolution, giving sharper more detailed pictures. HDMI upscaling means that sources connected via component or composite, such as older DVD players or games consoles can be outputted by the single HDMI output.
MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXV681 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 tablet. 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.
Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
As well as MusicCast, the RXV681 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've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.
Wi-Fi, DLNA and a smart app for effortless streaming
Connecting to your home network is easy with built-in Wi-Fi. A DLNA certified connection also makes streaming a breeze. You can access your stored music from PC, laptop or NAS drive and listen to Internet radio stations and music services such as Spotify. Another great feature is the downloadable Apple or Android app that lets you control many of the receiver's functions from your smartphone, iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or tablet.
For all-round AV supremacy, the RXV681 remains the one to beat.
