Since we can’t go to the movies right now, why not bring the movies (minus the strangers, sticky floors and pricey tickets) home? The Yamaha 7.2-Channel AV Receiver (RX-V685) helps you do just that. With epic audio, it transforms Netflix nights on the couch into a special occasion.

Today only, this premium audio receiver is going for $399—that’s $201 off the regular price—at Amazon. This ‘Deal of the Day’ represents a 33 percent drop in cose, and the lowest price we’ve seen yet for this amazing receiver.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more, so you’re all set with this receiver).

Act fast and shop now, though: This sale expires at midnight PST. Here are more details on this epic audio item.

Originally priced at $600 and now down to $399, this AV receiver is a great example of the world-class audio quality Yamaha is known for. It supports multiple channels for real 7.2 digital surround sound in your home. It also supports Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, 4K Ultra HD, and other formats, so you can feel like you’re at the movies while sitting in your favorite armchair.

Shoppers swear by its all-around home audio use: “It’s a great receiver and does way more than we ever thought it was going to,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “It’s an incredible piece of technology that allows for expansion. It integrates well with our Toshiba Fire TV, our existing Sony DVD/CD player, Sony CH-500 Bluetooth headphones and even my circa 1979 Technics phonograph turntable. ”

The audio system comes with wireless and Bluetooth support—meaning you don’t need any wires or cables to set up your home entertainment system of your dreams. 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 Bluetooth connectivity is awesome and it connects easily with all other devices. Super easy setup and the Yamaha app helps to get everything dialed-in with its technology,” shared another five-star reviewer.

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

This is a great addition to your home—and a great gift for anyone you live with (because you can enjoy it too!).
