Yamaha RX-V681 Review: A Great Example On The Receiver Market

People who are considering upgrading their home theater, should take under consideration the new Yamaha RX-V681.

This new receiver can help with both keeping up with the some of the latest audio and video standards and also running the new set of power-hungry speakers.

Moreover, the Yamaha RX-V681 also has the ability to support Dolby Atmos and HDR, which are two of the latest home-theater standards.

But, it doesn’t stop here, because this great receiver comes with a number of other great features, including six HDMI ports, Yamaha’s MusicCast multiroom system and Bluetooth. In the end, we must add that this receiver has plenty of power and amazing overall sound.

The RX-V681 features a phono input for vinyl playback.
This 7.2-channel 4K Ultra HD network AV receiver features Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™ object based surround sound.
So, yes, we think that the new Yamaha RX-V681 is a great example for other receivers on the market. This device offers some compelling reasons for people to start thinking about upgrading their old receiver.

The new Yamaha RX-V681 is available at the price of 600 dollars, which is not a high price for what customers will receive. Let’s move to the design.

Many receivers that are now on the market limit the functionality available from the front panel in order to keep the look clean and minimal. But, it seems that Yamaha didn’t agree with this when it built the new RX-V681.

The receiver’s face is more cluttered than other competitors on the market, especially since it comes with handy shortcuts to the most popular inputs.

Yamaha RX-V681 receiver Quality and awesome sound
We must say that it comes with a large LED display, which is blue and very easy for people to read from across the room. As for the company’s onscreen interface, we must say that it has received a spit-and-polish over previous years.

The new Yamaha RX-V681 comes with a high definition system, which is great, but it takes a little getting used to it for people who have owned previous models.

Another chapter where the company has made a few new changes is the receiver’s remote. This new remote lacks the friendly candy bar, which is now replaced by the so called “scientific calculator.”

The rows come with several tiny buttons, but we must say that the volume up/down buttons are well placed.

The difference between the newest RX-V681 and the previous V481? 

We must say that the biggest difference is that only the newest model delivers atmospheric formats, like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.

To be added that the new Yamaha RX-V681 comes with more HDMI ports than the previous model and all of these ports are now HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliant.

Moreover, the connectivity also includes a good selection of analog and digital ports in addition to both Bluetooth in and Bluetooth out.

This means that people will be able to use compatible speakers or headphones to work through Bluetooth.

The company’s proprietary MusicCast system has the ability to offer access to a number of services like Spotify, Rhapsody, Pandora and SiriusXM. To be added that this app also offers the ability to read from users’ phones or network devices.
