The '681' is the better option in this price bracket. 6 HDMI inputs (3 are HDCP 2.2), plus 4K upscaling. Has a phono stage too.
Does this make everything sound amazing or does it depend on source?
Forgive my stupid question, but what does it actually do?

Is it like a 'hub'/passthrough for other devices? Is having this like having a 'smart' sub or something?
Any recommendations for a speaker package with this?

Can I ask why 4k upscaling is important on an av receiver, as pretty much all 4k tvs now do 4k upscaling?

I want enhance sound for my samsung 8000 series 65" tv. Please suggest.
Bit of advice please guys. Is there a receiver that can switch off all speakers but 2 ceiling speakers that otherwise get used for Atmos? Was looking at Marantz SR7011 but was told it can't do that.

My dad's 78s really come alive when played through this.

only way i could think to do that is if you ran extra wires to your ceiling speakers and wire them to B speaker inputs, this all depends on your current set-up ie are your front speakers bi-wire?
