Yamaha RX-V681 AV Receivers Can Handle 4K Content & Have Built-In Bluetooth

Yamaha unveiled its new RX-V681 A/V receiver, supports 4K Ultra HD and wireless multiroom audio, as well as Bluetooth and Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer for the better quality playback from mobile devices.

This new av receiver has a lot more in common with the RX-V781, though it is $649.95 instead of $849.95. The RX-V681 is the best buy especially for those who have a multi-media A/V room and a wide variety of HDMI sources since this receiver has 6 HDMI inputs. This unit is a big step up especially in features department. The RX-V681 not only has all the capabilities of the younger siblings, the similar look, though a little deeper, about 5 lbs. heavier, but now has Sirius XM Internet Radio and Rhapsody music streaming capability. Not just featuring 4K pass-through for those with 4K monitors, but this receiver also has 4K upscaling, that converts images of low resolution to ultra HD resolution. This receiver comes with a color GUI vs. the basic color OSD of the lesser av receiver. The Zone 2 feature is also available with this receiver.


This new RX-V681 also features a Phono connection for those with a record player. Another great feature is not really a networking frill but more of a internal processing plus, that’s the 90w per channel at 0.06% THD to go along with Yamaha’s already exceptional discrete amp configuration for the superb audio quality. Granted it is not the >0.02% THD that I have seen available in other products, but this is extremely good for what is still considered a budget receiver.
