Features

Full 4K

4K Ultra HD HDMI Support

Providing complete compatibility with the latest HDMI standards, this AV receiver delivers transmission of 4K video at 60 frames/second pass-through. It also supports HDR (high dynamic range) video including Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma. This provides incredible contrast, smooth tone and rich, bright colors—giving you full, high-definition enjoyment with an exceptionally realistic and natural picture quality.

Dual Wield

Two HDMI Outputs

Since the RX-V685 has two HDMI outputs, simultaneous connection to a TV and video projector is possible. Or you can add an additional TV in a common area like a kitchen or patio to watch the same content in two different rooms. HDMI Out 2 will carry an HDMI audio signal to the second TV to provide sound.

Stream Simply

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay

Built-in Wi-Fi allows for a connection with your wireless router, greatly simplifying system connections for music streaming or enjoying networked audio (PC/NAS). Bluetooth connectivity is also included to stream into your receiver or out from the receiver to another Bluetooth device such as a pair of headphones.

New Heights in Sound

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Compatibility with these amazing sound technologies creates 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.

Experiences Expanded

CINEMA DSP 3D

This 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, utilizing 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 acoustic spaces of those concert halls on home equipment. Immerse yourself in the astounding realism of your movies and music with this sound technology.

Advanced Sound Optimization

YPAO™ - R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) Sound Optimization

This technology analyzes room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.

Optimum Performance

High-Quality Parts and Design

Yamaha AV receivers feature fully discrete power amplifiers to minimize distortion and adopt independent pure power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry. They house ultra-high performance 384 kHz / 32-bit DACs, also with independent power supplies. These support in reproducing audio for high resolution sound sources without noise. Moreover, 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.

Wire Less

Wireless Surround Speakers

Combine this AV receiver with the upcoming MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless streaming speakers and enjoy the convenience of creating a home theater with wireless rear speakers in a 5.1-channel system. What's more, you get stunningly realistic sound with a clean, clutter-free setup. Easily turn your current living room into an entertainment environment where you can fully enjoy movies, music and games.

Multi-Room Audio

MusicCast

Start with this AV receiver in your home theater and expand to other rooms over time with MusicCast speakers, sound bars or Hi-Fi gear.

Item Condition

Yamaha Factory Refurbished

Buying a Yamaha Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged with all original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Yamaha product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is, in many ways, better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a manufacturers warranty valid at any authorized Yamaha repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 714-522-9888)

Yamaha, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Yamaha certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and tested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Yamaha Factory Refurbished" product.

Most units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10). Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we can’t provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our inventory.

5.0 2 YAMAHA RX-V685 7.2-Ch x 90 Watts A/V Receiver

Great Service

5 YAMAHA RX-V685 7.2-Ch x 90 Watts A/V Receiver
Reviewer: from Foxboro, MA
This is the first time I've used aceessories4less and I must say I am very pleased. I ordered a refurbished Yamaha receiver, RX-V685. It was very easy to register and place an order. I paid the minimum shipping amount, yet the order was delivered in about three days, well ahead of what was projected.

I am a bit wary of refurbished items, but I took a shot because of the excellent price for a near state of the art receiver. The unit came packaged in a Yamaha box. Inside everything was wrapped in plastic and cushioned with Styrofoam. The unit itself looked as good as new and all items were there.

So far, the receiver is performing exactly as expected. I did execute a firmware upgrade by USB, not sure why it didn't work via the network. I've seen literature that it will be updated to HDMI 2.1 with a future update, looking forward to that.

I will definitely use accessories4less again!

IMPROVED VERSION

5 YAMAHA RX-V685 7.2-Ch x 90 Watts A/V Receiver
Reviewer: from TEXAS
In my view, this product is a substantial upgrade for the following reasons:

1. Pre-outs for an amplifier
2. 32 bit DAC instead of a 24 bit
3. 4K upscaling. My 1080p video looks better.
4. Higher quality remote

Finally, the product arrived safely via FedEx instead of UPS, looks new and the price is great.
