Yamaha RXV683 Music Cast 7 Channel AV Receiver – : Very good option to home audio

I bought this item elsewhere but decided to leave a review on amazon. This is my first ever av receiver which i bought after doing extensive research. I paired it with monitor audio mass 5. One thing i can say is that this is an extremely well made and thought-through product by a leading player in the sound industry. Controlling everything in my humble entertainment setup (5. 1 speaker system, blu ray player, ps4, lg tv, spotify, occasional pc viewing), this receiver is now the center, the ‘maestro’ of my system. Out of the box, the receiver looks and feels beautiful. It is a big black box, is solid and has a quality feel to it.

Great av amp took me some time to realise that only one of my hdmi ports on my tv supports arc but once past that set up is easy ,not tried music cast yet dont want to spend money on wireless speakers their not cheap surround sound is very good but i dont use bass woofer ,love the phono inputs. . Robert nesta marley lives again, i find talking phones and other devices irritating so i’m never going to bother with alexa all in all my new favourite device.

Very good product, as advertised.

Arrived very fast the day before delivery date. This avr is extremely brilliant. Solid design ,easy front layout. This model has six hdmi ports. One on the front, with usb for mp3 etc. Five on the rear and one to tv. 0 currently,dolby vision and hybrid colour. For high colour and contrast.

This yamaha rxv683 is connected upto a panasonic oled 55” 952, and a panasonic dmp-ub700 4kdvd player, it replaces a yamaha rxv380. This is worth the money, the quality of the picture and the sound is outstanding, it is very easy to set up and i personally feel this is the best av amp under £500 on the market. It is a very very powerful amp, and steers the sound around our 5. 1 speakers extremely well, the centre channel (speech) is outstanding. This is a 4k uhd straight-thru amp, which means the dvd player is connected to the amp by hdmi. This supplies picture and sound, the surround sound dolby digital /dts sound codes are supplied by the dvd player and are decoded by the amp, this means that on blu-ray play back, the amp display shows dolby digital, or dts and the dvd player display shows the type of code; true hd,atmos,ex and so on. Yamaha have produced a high quality product at at a very reasonable price, that is why in a very competitive market this amp has the amazon rating it has, well worth the cash. This amp has a power rating recorded at 85% peak sound, denon and sony have power rating at clipping (which means they are red lining: not true wattage: check out the avforum). What hi-fi, won’t tell you this: yamaha has the best all around connectivity of any av amp around today (yamaha to panasonic, yamaha to lg, yamaha to samsung etc, and the very very best lip-sync interface around).

Yamaha RXV683 Music Cast 7 Channel AV Receiver – Black : I needed a new hdmi amp to replace my old denon amp. An amp that could support hdmi2, uhd, airplay, streaming and bluetooth. I have always enjoyed the clean sound of a yamaha amp. Having not bought any audio hardware for over 7 years, it was quite daunting to wade through the options. Amazon made this a lot easier. The amp was incredibly easy to setup and i find the on screen menus, setup routines (ypao) and display easy to use. Setting everything up took a few minutes. The sound is great and easily fills a double volume room. The ypao setup detects where the speakers are and their frequency range allowing the decoder to create excellent sound even when all speakers are at the front. I currently have 7 speakers connected (all at the front) and although the sound doesn’t surround you it really is very good.

Great avr, has everything i needed with superb sound quality.

Wonderful sound easy to setup. Works with my apple airpods which is an added bonus.

I am very happy with my order the shipping was fast and the yamaha reviver was good buythanks.
