We're not heading to the movie theater anytime soon, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the show in the comfort of home. And we probably won't miss that loud popcorn munching, sticky floors and ever-rising ticket prices anyway.

The Yamaha 7.2-Channel AV Receiver (RX-V685) will massively improve your home-theater game, and it's on sale for $430, or $170 off at Amazon. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen for this model!

The AV receiver features the stellar audio quality that Yamaha is known for, plus it supports multiple channels for a real 7.2 digital surround sound. It also supports Dolby Atmos, DTS: x, 4K Ultra HD and other formats, so you can feel like you’re at the movies while lounging on the couch.

Meanwhile, the wireless audio system features Bluetooth, so you don’t need any cables to set it up. The AV receiver can stream Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, Amazon Music and Apple Music via Apple AirPlay 2 when synced to a smartphone, thanks to Yamaha’s MusicCast settings. It even works with Alexa for hands-free navigation and voice search with an Echo Dot or any Alex-enabled smart home device.

The Yamaha 7.2-Channel AV Receiver has seven HDMI ports (five out and two in) and traditional audio and video composite ports for old school TVs and speakers. It also comes with a remote and microphone, so the system can calibrate your unique living room for the best audio experience.

Here’s what Amazon shoppers had to say about this AV receiver:

“I have had other Yamaha receivers in the past and let me tell you this one rocks!” one happy reviewer wrote. “It works very well with my QLED Samsung TV.”

Another delighted shopper added: “This was a great receiver, and it sounded fantastic with everything that played through it. The HDMI switching worked well, and the multi-zone was easy to set up and use through Music Cast. In the end though, it worked great with all kinds of decoding. BluRay, streaming, and YouTube looked and sounded fantastic.”
