If you spend a lot of time enjoying movies and music, you want a receiver that treats them both right. Yamaha's RX-V683 is loaded with up-to-the-minute features and convenient customization options so you can set your system up just the way you want.

Music aficionados will appreciate this receiver's ability to play different high-resolution audio formats through the front-panel USB port or from a networked computer. And if you're a vinyl lover, a phono input provides an easy connection for your turntable.

Built-in support for streaming services like Spotify®, TIDAL, and Pandora® lets you play and control your favorite music directly through the receiver. Apple® AirPlay® lets you stream from a compatible iOS® device, and Bluetooth adds even more streaming flexibility. You can even stream audio from the receiver to a set of Bluetooth headphones — great for late-night listening.

Setting up a whole home wireless music system has never been easier. This receiver's built-in MusicCast technology lets you add audio playback in up to nine additional rooms with compatible Yamaha wireless speakers and sound bars.

MusicCast lets you stream music from your personal collection, internet radio, and streaming services. You can also play Bluetooth sources, sound from your TV, and even CDs and vinyl. The free MusicCast Controller app makes it easy to access your music and control what you have playing in different rooms.

The RX-V683 has connections for nine speakers, and it can power up to seven speakers at a time. You can set up a standard 7.2-channel surround sound system, or you can go with 5.2-channel surround sound and use the rear surround channels as height channels in a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos system.
