Wouldn't it be nice to be able to enjoy your favorite music in more than one
room? The R-S700 has a number of specialized functions that make it convenient
to use in custom installations. With another receiver or amplifier plus a
pair of speakers in a second room, the people in both rooms can hear the music
that is playing. You can even put a pair of speakers in a third room and listen
there as well. What's more, you can control playback of the main system from
the second room with the Zone 2 remote control.
- 12V Trigger Out (Control Out)
The 12V trigger output can be used to automatically power on the components
in Zone 2 when the main power is turned on. Output is a high 100mA, so relay
operation is possible.

- ToP-ART Sound Quality Design
ToP-ART (Total Performance Anti-Resonance Technology) design uses a symmetrical
layout for accurate sound field reproduction and the ART Base to eliminate
effects from external vibration.
- Pure Direct
Music signals travel the shortest possible route, bypassing the buffer amp
and tone, loudness and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal
degradation for the purest sound quality.
- New Speaker Terminals
These high grade speaker terminals have gold plating for best connection and
outstanding durability. The pitch between jacks is wider for easier insertion.
- Highest Quality Parts
The quality of each individual part, as well as how they work together, basically
determines the sound quality of any component. Yamaha uses only very high
quality parts, carefully selected and tested.
- Continuously Variable Loudness Control
Our ears lose sensitivity to high and low frequencies at low volume levels.
This control lets you turn down the volume while maintaining the optimum frequency
- Special Power Supply for Clear iPod Sound
The iPod dock has an independent power supply to prevent operating or charging
current from the iPod from flowing into the amp ground signal. This ensures
optimum iPod sound quality.
- Balanced System for Minimal Noise
An unbalanced interface is subject to commonmode voltage noise, so Yamaha
uses a balanced system to receive the iPod signal. This makes a significant
contribution to reducing noise in the system for higher sound quality.

The R-S700 preset remote control is designed to make it easy to operate the
receiver's many functions. The R-S700 provides a second remote that allows
