With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. The RX-V685  offers full compatibility with Amazon's range of voice control devices (sold separately). Welcome to the smart home.

* Availability of voice command control via Amazon Alexa varies by region.

Free and Easy Placement - Wireless Surround Speakers

Combine this AV receiver with MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless streaming speakers (sold separately) and enjoy the amazing convenience of creating a home theatre with wireless rear surround 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.








Immerse Yourself in the Sound - CINEMA DSP 3D

This unique Yamaha proprietary sound field creation technology, was created by combining measured sound field data with digital signal processing. Yamaha collected sound field data from famous concert halls and music clubs around the world, utilising its wealth of experience in the fields of concert hall design, public address and mixing. By digitizing that vast trove of information and incorporating it into dedicated LSI devices, it effectively reproduces the spaces of those concert halls on home equipment. Immerse yourself in the astounding realism of your movies, and enter a world of profound theatre sound.

Optimum Performance - High-quality Parts

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. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.









Convenient Enjoyment - Two HDMI Outputs

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, and so on.

 

Virtual Speaker Technology

With the power of CINEMA DSP 3D, the Virtual Presence Speaker function makes full use of centre and surround speakers to create audible information from where presence (height) speakers are normally installed. In addition, this model also features a Virtual Surround Back Speaker function. Even without using surround back speakers, you can experience more natural surround sound thanks to CINEMA DSP 3D playback - giving you the virtual equivalent of up to 9.1-channel surround, even with a 5.1-speaker configuration.

* Dolby Atmos and DTS: X signals cannot be used with these virtual features.












Professional-grade Sound Optimisation

YPAO-R.S.C. (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer - Reflected Sound Control) 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. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system, creating an ideal listening space with perfectly balanced sound.

A World of Music - Streaming Services

Explore a world of music with music streaming services* built-in. Syncing your playlists and song likes from your smart phone or computer to the RX-V685, music streaming services make it impossibly easy to either listen to your faves or discover new music.

* Music streaming service availability varies by region.

 








Easy Operation, Detailed Settings - AV Controller App

This easy-to-use app lets you conveniently and 'smartly' control your AV receiver's power, volume, input selections, DSP modes - and much, much more - from an iOS or Android device. You can also use as many as 23 different languages and customise the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.

Install with Ease - AV Setup Guide

No worries, no confusion. Use this special app and get expert assistance with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices. It even guides you through various other settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amplifier assignments.

Bi-amp Connection

This AV receiver features bi-amping capability, driving the treble and bass ranges of the front speakers (L, R) with independent amplifiers. In addition to providing greater power, it also prevents interference between the high and low sounds, further improving the sound of the front speakers.

Music Enhancer

The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimised for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, energetic sound quality during wireless playback.
