PROFESSIONAL GRADE SOUND OPTIMISATION
YPAO (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer) analyses the room acoustics and your system, then precisely adjusts various audio parameters to provide the best sound for your room. Simply by placing the supplied microphone at your listening position and switching YPAO on, the system is automatically tuned for optimum performance in your home theatre room.
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.
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.
MUSIC AT YOUR COMMAND
Hey Siri. Play music in the kitchen and living room. AirPlay 2 adds the ability to stream Apple Music and other streaming services to multiple MusicCast devices throughout your home. Easily control it from your iPhone or iPad, link it with a HomePod, or simply ask Siri for an assist.
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-V485, music streaming services make it impossibly easy to either listen to your faves or discover new music.
EASILY EXPERIENCE 9.1-CHANNEL REALISM
With the power of CINEMA DSP 3D, the Virtual Presence Speaker function makes full use of center 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.
FULL RESOLUTION, TOTAL IMMERSION
Unlock the full potential of your 4K content. Enhanced Audio Return Channel (also known as eARC) is the next generation of ARC – available in the industry-leading AV receivers from Yamaha.
eARC delivers full-resolution, multi-channel audio formats such as Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® through your existing HDMI connection, giving you the most realistic surround sound experience for immersing yourself in your favourite movies and moments.
Since the RX-V685 has two HDMI output terminals, a simultaneous connection to the TV and LCD projector is possible. This 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.
THE JOYS OF VINTAGE VINYL
This AV receiver provides phono input terminals, letting you connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl collection.
Touch or voice control – the choice is yours. Intuitively control a single MusicCast product or an entire whole-of-home system with ease using Alexa or Google Assistant and hear your home come alive.
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.
