The Yamaha 7.2-Channel AV Receiver (RX-V685) does just that. Right now, it’s going for $500, or $100 off retail on Amazon. That’s 17 percent off, and the lowest price we’ve seen yet!
The AV receiver features the world-class audio quality that Yamaha is known for, plus it supports multiple channels for a real 7.2 digital surround sound in your home. It also supports Dolby Atmos, DTS: x, 4K Ultra HD and other formats, so you can feel like you’re at the movies while sitting in your favorite armchair.
Meanwhile, the audio system features wireless and Bluetooth support, so you don’t need any wires or cables to set up your home entertainment system of your dreams. The AV receiver can stream Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, Amazon Music and Apple Music via Apple AirPlay 2 when synced to a smartphone, thanks to Yamaha’s MusicCast settings.

Here’s what Amazon shoppers had to say about this AV receiver:
“I have had other Yamaha receivers in the past and let me tell you this one rocks!” one happy reviewer wrote. “It works very well with my QLED Samsung TV.”
Another delighted shopper added, “This was a great receiver, and it sounded fantastic with everything that played through it. The HDMI switching worked well, and the multi-zone was easy to set up and use through Music Cast, In the end though, it worked great with all kinds of decoding. BluRay, streaming, and YouTube looked and sounded fantastic.”
