    Very happy with RX-A680

    Easy set up for 58 y/o geezer. Son-in-law programmed my Apple TV remote and I push one button and I'm where I want to be 90% of the time. I have a Yamaha integrated amp for music, but I am very impressed with the 7 channel stereo sound from the A680. Better than the theater, and my 54 year old popcorn maker makes better popcorn than the theater--and its cheap. Life is good.

    Sometimes there's no beating a traditional home sound system centered on an Audio Video Receiver. There is a considerable amount of time one must dedicate to set up, however. After using the microphone to tune your speakers, you'll still need to go into the speaker setup menu to do some fine tuning. This is very different from a soundbar, where you just plug it in and turn it on. Speaking of, I returned a Samsung soundbar (Q90) for this AVR. And I think the soundbar sounded a bit scrisper. This could be because the sound bar is tuned to sound it's best with the included speakers. I purchased some Klipsch Reference speakers, which surprisingly don't sound all that great. But this brings me to my principal reason for buying an AVR, upgradability. In the future I plan to upgrade the speakers and add a pair of height speakers for ATMOS sound. Additionally, the MusicCast app is pretty good. It's the primary app I use to play music. Oh, 7 Channel Stereo sound is pretty awesome. There is some cleaver tuning going on here. I thought it would simply at a pair of left and right channel speakers but surprisingly is the mode separates certain sounds for the surround speakers so you get the main focus of the sound strack still coming from the front left and right channels.

    This receiver does it all. it will upscale 1080p video to 4K resolution. It has video over standby passthrough. Which lets you watch TV, Blu-Rays or play games and use your other HDMI connected devices without having the receiver on through the 4 HDMI inputs. it has built in WiFi, internet music apps and is firmware upgradeable. Plus Bluetooth, AirPlay, Spotify Connect and MusicCast multi-room. Works with Amazon AlexaThe USB port plays audio files like MP3's wave files at upto 32 bit 192K hertz. It also plays DSD (Direct Stream Digital) 64, 128 and 256 DSF files from the USB port. It plays Super Audio CD's at up to 11.2 Mega Hertz. It also does Dolby Atmos which sounds great when Usoing Dolby Atmos bitstreaming on my Xbox One X and it also does DTSX audio when using presence speakers. It does HDR 10, Dolby vision, Hybrid Log-Gamma and BT.2020. Yamaha will be adding eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) with a future firmware upgrade. This reveiver will complete anybodys home theater expeirence. It is a great buy for your money and even works with wireless surround speakers.

    Oh, let me count the ways that this receiver brings love of music back to me life. It is truly a pleasure to listen to the soft basses and high highs once again. Do not get me wrong, I have the pleasure of enjoying Yamaha receivers for the last 25 years or so, but this one is truly perfectly suited to the digital music formats.

    Excellent 7.2 receiver

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 7 months when reviewed.

    I am a big fan of Yamaha receivers. I decided to upgrade my Marantz 1403 5.1 receiver. I initially went with the Yamaha RX-485 5.1 receiver. I have one of those in our exercise room. Sounds great. After purchasing this for my living room, I thought that I would expand the number of speakers from 5.1 to 7.1. I returned the RX-485 and purchased this RX-A680. Just the addition of the extra speakers and the ability to play Dolby Atmos is a giant plus. The set up on this receiver is straight forward and easy. It has the Yamaha sound that I really enjoy, plus extra functionality. Overall, very satisfied with the upgrade of this purchase.

    This does it all. Had a problem in the past with not enough HDMI ports on tv, NO PROBLEM with this receiver, 6 ports to input anything I have. WiFi and Bluetooth. App to put on my phone with all the remote functions. Streaming radio. This has it all. Put music on USB drive, plug it in and play your music collection. Hi-res music, this does it all. Very happy.

    We were apprehensive buying this Yamaha Avenger at first because our hearts were set for another brand but was sold out. We are glad we purchased this even though the cost was $100 more than Pioneer. I love the 2 Apps Music Cast and AV Controller. Make sure you download these Apps.

    This was the second AVENTAGE I bought. I did so to accompany the one on my first floor and link the two together over my home network. I can now play the same music synchronized across four zones instead of the two supported by a single receiver. Very cool!

    I had an older Yamaha receiver which lasted several years. This one has similar sound quality as far as I can tell. The YPAO is very nice for setting up the sound balance initially. I like that they attempted to redesign everything from the ground up. However the Bluetooth is terrible. After much effort I got it to connect to a couple different wireless headphones sort of, and it kind of worked, but not reliable. I was really looking forward to listening privately without bothering my family, but I will probably need to buy a separate Bluetooth connector for the output jack on the front.

    Less distorted than the 7.2 Sony high resolution audio and be able to turn louder. But it has to select Input HDMI and ..., not direct like Sony. Anyway, the high light color of the remote is visible for a few seconds once you touch and control it.

    Great receiver but phono input...

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    - I own this receiver for 1 month - bought it as an open box for a good price. Everything works great except for the phono entry (comments below). The built-in Bluetooth works great and the sound is much better than my old Yamaha along with a Bluetooth adapter. I also love the auto power-off function (when I turn off / on my smart-TV, the receiver automatically turns off / on). It took me a while to adjust the bass and treble to my liking, but after that, it was great - By the way, the setup process is not that easy but I already knew that because I had another Yamaha receiver. - I have an Audio Technica AT-LP120 and set it up properly (without using its preamp function) and the sound is a bit bad and the volume stays too low - I don't know if there's anything wrong with my set up, but I didn't like the sound's quality - I expected much more!

    So good - best receiver ever owned

    Posted .

    I've read a lot of reviews that say this is complicated or difficult to set up or operate. I've had zero problems. I went from a Pioneer receive to this one. The sound quality of this receiver is unbelievable. I absolutely love the sound output! Back to the set up. It's all on screen set up and it has a mic that you can run to have the system auto calibrate. I'm absolutely stumped on how others had so much difficulty. I was actually expecting this to be more complicated, it's not. Now, there are a lot of features and options, however, these are still not any different than any new receiver. There's wifi and Bluetooth, etc, but again the setup menu walks you through it. If you're on the fence because of some that say this is too complicated, it's just not. It's a receiver, so if you have any basic knowledge of home theater, you won't have any issues at all. Great buy!

    First, you have to be savvy enough to want/appreciate passive soundbar (go surroundbar) to be in the market. Then, you have to be smart enough to know your limitations, so you do not overspend on A/V receiver with Soundbar, Powered Sub, surround speakers and more on the horizon. This unit powers my LG Nanocell 9 75" TV, Def Tech Mythos SSA50 (a beast), Martin Logan Dynamo 500, Def Tech 9080 (2) and cablebox displayed on Bell'O PR45 console. Nice!

    Great for 5.1.2

    Owned for 4 months when reviewed.

    This is my second Yamaha receiver and have to say they've come a long way in 15 years. Im using it to power my 5.1.2 surround system with Sonance speakers and it delivers plenty of power and clean sound. If you're looking to do more than 5.2.2 surround, you may want to carefully review the specs to see if it will serve your needs. YPAO mic setup is a snap and it took little fine tuning for the room after running the setup to produce accurate, rich, sound.

    Very good sound quality but not the best I've heard with my speaker setup. Also this was not future proofed enough for me since it lacked HDMI 2.1 and I do have HDMI 2.1 devices like my Xbox and PC. If you don't think you'll want HDMI 2.1 support down the road then it's good enough.

    Exactly what I was looking for when I walked into the store. The sales associate that I worked with was absolutely awesome and ensured that everything that I needed was taken care of. Went out of his way.

    If I'm honest, this AVR was a lot more than I actually needed. My plan was to build out a 5.1 system, however, I wanted to pick up an AVR at my store rather than have one shipped. This was the only option in my price range. I'm blown away and also excited to have gotten something that'll handle true ATMOS if I do ever decide to add some extra speakers.
