Compatible with everything from your turntable to an HDR UHD Blu-ray player, the Yamaha RXV683 is an AVR hub that will handle it all.

Designed for a UHD 4K future
With six HDMI sockets, including one at the front, the RXV683 has fifty percent more inputs than the models below. For full compatibility with the exciting new UHD Blu-ray format, three of them are compatible with HDR Video including Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log-Gamma, and BT.2020.

Perfect for your audio sources – including your turntable
Audio inputs include an MM phono connection for your turntable as well as three RCA phono inputs at the back for a CD player and other music sources. At the front there’s a 3.5mm input that’s ideal for an MP3 player. A USB socket is also at hand for connecting your USB media stick and playing back digital music files.

A new dimension in sound with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Yamaha's digital processing are top quality Burr Brown DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor). These not only provide punchy and lifelike sound but also facilitate the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The RXV683 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

YPAO-R.S.C for optimal sound in your room
YPAO-R.S.C. stands for Reflected Sound Control and adapts the RXV683 to get the very best sound quality in your room. By measuring reflected sound it can make corrections via the DSP (Digital Sound Processor) to make sure the sound is as natural as possible. Even better, all this is done at the touch of a button and takes no extra effort to achieve.

UHD 4K Upscaling
Another great feature with the RXV683 is HDMI and UHD 4K upscaling. This means that, once plugged into your UHD 4K TV, Blu-rays and 1080p games can be upscaled to 4K UHD resolution, giving sharper more detailed pictures. HDMI upscaling means that sources connected via component or composite, such as older DVD players or games consoles can be outputted by the single HDMI output.

Stream the best music services
Compatible with Spotify, Pandora, Napster, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz, the RXV683 is fully equipped for your favourite music streaming service. With Tidal and Qobuz already offering higher resolution playback, it’s now possible to find a streaming service that at least matches the quality of CD and, in some cases, even improves upon it.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXV683 is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast you can control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or tablet. Play the same music on all the components or split the sound into different zones for different moods in each room; the choice is yours. The MusicCast CONTROLLER app lets you operate the system around your home and change settings quickly and easily.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
As well as MusicCast, the RXV683 also has built-in Apple AirPlay, letting you stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. You can also view data such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen display. *Some models don't support album art display. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Wi-Fi, DLNA and a smart app for effortless streaming
Connecting to your home network is easy with built-in Wi-Fi. A DLNA certified connection also makes streaming a breeze. You can access your stored music from PC, laptop or NAS drive and listen to Internet radio stations. Another great feature is the downloadable Apple or Android app that lets you control many of the receiver's functions from your smartphone, iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or tablet.

With the ability to handle all your music and video sources, the Yamaha RXV683 is a true master of all.

What do people use all these hdmi inputs for.

STB, Blu-ray player, console

Think the denon 2400 is the better option

Nice choice. I've had my eye on the Yamaha for some time now, and the extra HDMI ports is always a bonus, but the Denon also has a much better rating for speakers (4-16 ohms vs 6-8 on the Yamaha). I was looking to use my existing speakers, but unfortunately they're rated at 3 ohms so neither of them would work, so now I also need a new speaker system as the sub also needs replaced as it's not active which is what these amps require.

By the time I purchase these, plus a replacement blu ray player (I've got my eye on an Oppo 203 lols) it's going to cost me an arm and a leg.

Anyone have any recommendations for speaker systems? 5.1 is fine for my room.

XBone, PS4, Sky, Fire TV, UHD player.

The front HDMI is useless really.
