Like all Home Cinema amps, this unit ideally needs at least 2 inches of free air space above it for ventilation.
Music streaming via wire is far more reliable than via Wi-Fi. If you can't run an Ethernet cable from your router to this unit, then simply buy a pair of mains Ethernet extenders from Amazon for around £25. They plug into your mains sockets and use the mains wiring in your house as an Ethernet cable - they are brilliant!
Apple AirPlay allows the wireless streaming of music from an iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch to this unit, as long as this unit is connected to the router in your house.
Bluetooth only works reliably if both the sending and receiving units are in the same room.
Black only
Yamaha RX-V681 7.2 network receiver
Even better than the outgoing, highly reviewed Yamaha RX-V679

Take the excellent Yamaha RX-V679 give it Dolby Atmos up to 5.1.2, plus DTS:X, plus support for HDR and BT.2020, plus Bluetooth - and you've got the brand new RX-V681 !

The RX-V681 builds on the success of the outgoing 679, so you get 'UK tuning', plus six HDMI 2.0 inputs, HDCP 2.2 compatibility (first 3 HDMI inputs), plus WiFi, plus Bluetooth, plus 24 bit / 192 kHz streaming, plus support for DSD up to 5.6MHz, plus 7 x 150 watts, plus Bi-amp capability, plus standby HDMI pass-through, plus audio return, plus second zone capability, plus front USB iPod connectivity, plus Apple Airplay, plus 4K upscaling, plus Spotify Connect. You can even turn your smartphone into a sophisticated remote control (and wireless streamer) for this amp, using the excellent free Yamaha App. What you also get if you buy this amp (or most other Yamaha models from now on) is Yamaha's latest multi-room solution called MusicCast. The idea is that Yamaha units equipped with MusicCast (e.g. the latest Yamaha soundbars and Bluetooth speakers) can be placed in different rooms of the house and made to 'talk to each other' wirelessly and all be controlled independently via an excellent free Yamaha App. This means that virtually any music content (even LPs!) can be streamed anywhere in the house, so that it simultaneously plays in every room. Or, you can have different sources, playing in different rooms, at different volumes. And all controlled by your smartphone / tablet. Very simple, very effective and totally exclusive to Yamaha !
