Product Description

Details

Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™ - Explore Every Dimension

Compatibility with these amazing sound technologies transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience. They deliver breathtakingly rich and realistic surround sound, positioning and moving individual sounds to any virtual point in your room, including objects moving overhead. Experience the overwhelming realistic movement and immersion in videos — right in your home theatre room.

 

CINEMA DSP 3D - Immerse Yourself in the Sound

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.

 

YPAO™-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) - Professional-grade Sound Optimisation

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. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system, creating an ideal listening space with perfectly balanced sound.

 

High-quality Parts - Optimum Performance

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. Your Hub of Home Entertainment.

 

Wireless Surround Speakers - Free and Easy Placement

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.

 

MusicCast - Multi-room Audio

MusicCast takes the headache out of multi-room audio. Simply connect all MusicCast devices to the same network and start sharing audio throughout the home. Take MusicCast for a test drive by downloading the free MusicCast app and using it demo mode.

 

Streaming Services - A World of Music

Explore a world of music with music streaming services* built-in. Syncing your playlists and song likes from your smartphone 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.

 

Virtual Speaker Technology - Easily Experience 9.1-channel Realism

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.

 

Two HDMI Outputs - Convenient Enjoyment

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.

 

Phono Input - The Joys of Vintage Vinyl

This AV receiver provides phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection. Effortlessly Sophisticated.

 

Alexa on MusicCast - Let’s Talk

“Alexa, ask MusicCast to play Favourite 1 in the Kitchen.” With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. The RX-V685 name offers full compatibility with Amazon’s range of voice control devices. Welcome to the smart home.

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

 

AV Controller App - Easy Operation, Detailed Settings

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.

 

Advanced Graphical User Interface - Easy to Use and Multilingual

The latest graphical user interface from Yamaha has a high-resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and includes a selectable status bar that shows the input source, volume level, DSP mode, and audio format. The GUI provides a choice of eight languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.

 

Multi-zone Function (Zone2) - Enjoy in Two Rooms

Featuring Zone2 compatible speaker terminals, this system can send the same (or even different) AV contents playing in the main room for playing in another room. For example, if you’ve got speakers installed in your bedroom or kitchen, you can go to that other room and enjoy listening to the same or different main room content.

Other Features

Bi-amp Connection - Even Higher Quality Sound

This AV receiver features bi-amping capability, driving the treble and bass ranges of the front speakers (L, R) with independent amplifiers, making it possible to enjoy the even higher quality sound from the front channels — an important consideration in home theatre setups.

 

Music Enhancer - Brilliant and Lively

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.

 

AV Setup Guide - Install with Ease

This special app assists you with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices. Additionally, it guides you through various settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amplifier assignments.

 

Eco Mode - Save Energy by 20%

When ECO Mode is turned on it can reduce power consumption by about 20 percent*, thanks to an advanced energy-saving design. *Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
