An AV receiver is the true hub of any multichannel home cinema set-up, existing as the main unit for all of your sources (Blu-ray, Sky, Xbox, Playstation, Apple TV, etc) to feed a signal to, and for your speakers to receive a signal from. Most quality AV receivers will upscale the video quality and optimise the signal for the best possible picture. Many AV receiver models on the market today boast a vast plethora of excellent features and quirky inputs, but sometimes neglect to prioritise the build quality, mechanical integrity or the general sound performance of the receiver. Yamaha is no culprit of this; designing and engineering the internal circuitry to the best possible standards as their first and foremost precedence.
The RX-V679 exists a sole example of Yamaha's refusal to compromise on sound quality and functionality. Boasting a powerful 90 watts per channel into 6 ohms, this highly capable AV receiver will allow even the most demanding of loudspeakers to perform at an astonishingly rich and detailed standard. The RX-V679 is also capable of decoding high quality audio file formats, like DSD 2.8MHz/5.6MHz, FLAC/WAV/AIFF 192kHz/24bit and Apple Lossless 96kHz / 24-bit playback.
On top of this unrivalled quality of sound, the RX-V679 possesses a welath of useful and prolific features, including integrated WiFi, Wireless Direct compatibility and AirPlay, making it an easy box to network. Using this network functionality, you are able to stream your favourite tracks from services like Spotify, Napster, Pandora, Juke, etc directly to the AV receiver. Bluetooth functionality is also present, with a specialised and innovative 'Compressed Music Enhancer', designed to upscale these Bluetooth-transmitted audio files.
A vast number of HDMI inputs can be found on the rear panel, 6 to be exact, including HDCP2.2 technology for the latest standard in 4K Ultra-HD visual specification.
