Amazon is having a pretty decent sale on a bunch of Yamaha’s receivers and soundbars right now — check it out, here — but arguably the crown jewel of the deals is on the Yamaha RX-V685. The AV receiver, which was recently Wirecutter‘s pick for “best overall AV receiver,” is $100 off.
The Yamaha RX-V685 is a beast of an AV receiver. It’s great for stereo systems or for people who want to build out a larger home theater system; the Yamaha RX-V685 can handle up to a 7.2-channel system. It has five HDMI inputs, all of which are compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound technologies, so you can connect a number of different devices (such as a CD player, cable box, streaming device and a video game console). Maybe most importantly, it supports basically every way of streaming music: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplay 2, Spotify Connect and MusicCast Multi-Room.
The Gear Patrol Commuter, made in tandem with Priority Bicycles, was inspired by — and tested on — the streets of New York City. Streamlined for your everyday grind, it a pairs a durable, easy-to-maintain feature set with an understated colorway you won’t find anywhere else. Buy Now:
