One of Yamaha’s affordable AVRs is on the receiving end of more than just home cinema content for Amazon Prime Day. The giant online retailer has seen fit to slash its price by 40 percent to make it more affordable than even Yamaha had intended.
The Yamaha RX-V585 is a 7.2ch Dolby Atmos receiver that’s now just £319 thanks to a £211 discount. As well as Atmos, it has DTS:X on board too, in addition to Bluetooth, AirPlay and Yamaha’s MusicCast platform which allows the RX-V585 to become part of a wider multi-room network. It also comes with Amazon Alexa compatibility for voice control.
All the major music services are integrated, including Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz, Pandora and Napster. While it got muted praise in our Yamaha RX-V585 review we think it’s well worth your time at today’s fantastic price.

£530 £319 at Amazon
This 7.2ch receiver is packed with features for this low, low, price. It supports 3D audio codecs such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X and there are plenty of music streaming options including multi-room too. There aren’t many AVRs cheaper than this.View Deal
One of the reasons it scored beneath the competition is that it only has four HDMI inputs but, for many users that’s not going to be a problem. They’re all HDCP 2.2-enabled for 4K HDR playback.
Elsewhere, there are two coaxial and single optical inputs, alongside five analogue – one being the 3.5mm aux on the front – and USB.
Sonically, it has a nice spacious soundstage and plenty of muscle. While there are better entry-level AVRs out there, you won’t find many at today’s low price.
