Boasting a full range of streaming options, powerful output and flexible set-up, the Yamaha RXV679 is endlessly entertaining.

UHD 4K Upscaling

With the Yamaha RXV679 you don't just get HDMI sockets that pass through 4K, you get 4K upscaling built-in. This means that, provided you have a UHD 4K TV, all your HD video sources can be viewed scaled up to glorious 4K.

Total Purity Concept for enhanced sound quality
A noticeable shift up in sound quality from the lower 79-series, the RXV679 is serious about sound. Encompassing high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies, the RXV679 is designed to take sound seriously. Whether it's a live music concert or movie soundtrack, the Yamaha offers power, purity and realism of sound that puts it at the head of its class.

Configure the amp the way you want
Although the RXV679 will happily run a 7.1 surround sound speaker set-up there might be times you'd prefer to have sound in another room, too. With this in mind, the Yamaha offers a number of flexible options. With a powered Zone 2 output you can instead run a 5.1 speaker system in one room and a pair of stereo speakers in the other. This is made even easier with Intelligent Amp Assign that makes sure CINEMA DSP settings are optimised for the speaker configuration currently running.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can 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
With standard Wi-Fi it's easy to make a connection with your home network. 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. 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.

YPAO-R.S.C for optimal sound in your room
YPAO-R.S.C. stands for Reflected Sound Control and adapts the RXV679 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.

Better equipped than ever, the Yamaha RXV679 is up there with the best.
