- Yamaha has upgraded the DAC aswell, now Burr-Brown 384 kHz / 32-bit DAC x 3 (x4 on 585/685)
- Amount of HDMI inputs are still low and for 685 they have taken one away from V683, but added second HDMI output (5/2).
- HDMI eARC via future firmware update
Hoping to see Aventage serie announcement very soon!
The likes of the RXV685 has 8 scene buttons on the remote control, meaning you can save a streaming service as a scene, then turn on the amp just by pressing your desired scene on the remote.
Of course navigating Spotify requires an app (it's using Spotify Connect after all), but you will have to initially login to the streaming service using the MusicCast app when you first step up the receiver.
