Product Details

Yamaha 2 Channel Black Natural Sound Stereo Receiver, Model RS700

Elite class stereo receiver combining ToP-ART technology and ART Base chassis construction with gold–plated speaker terminals and dual aluminum heat sinks for crisp, clean sound. Advanced features include continuously variable loudness control, CD Direct Amplification, along with Yamaha iPod dock connection, SIRIUS Radio Ready, 40-station AM/FM and zone 2 control for endless music enjoyment options.

Features:

  • Dual aluminum-extruded heat sinks ensure effective heat dissipation and help achieve crisp, clean sound.
  • Gold-plated speaker terminals and RCA in/out jacks are durable and provide highest quality connections.
  • With a straight connection to the CD input, CD Direct Amplification maximizes CD source S/N ratio.
  • An iPod Dock port provides highest quality sound from an iPod. iPod Video Out allows connection to a TV.
  • With a subscription to SIRIUS Satellite Radio, you can greatly expand your choice of high quality radio programs.
  • This receiver makes it easy for someone in another room to listen to the music and even control playback.

Zone Control

  • Multi-Zone Compatibility
    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.
  • Main/Zone 2 Power Link
    When you switch on the R-S700 in the main room, the unit in Zone 2 will also come on.
  • Remote (IR) 2 In/Out and Remote 2 In
    These terminals let you connect an IR signal receiver for wireless remote control between the Main Zone and Zone 2.
  • Speaker A/B and A+B Selection
    Enjoy music in a third room! Just connect a second pair of speakers to the Speaker B terminals and you can listen to either pair or both of them at the same time.
  • Dedicated Zone remote Control
    The R-S700 provides a second remote unit for controlling operation of the main system from Zone 2.
  • The Look and Texture of Quality
    Offers the look and feel of the top-class A-S2000, with elegant aluminum front panel and silky touch volume/selector knobs. You can feel Yamaha's commitment to quality when you touch the knobs.
  • 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 response.
  • 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.
  • New Remote Controls
    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 system control from Zone 2.

  • 100W x 2 high power output

      Good replacement but not quite producing the same bass(and loudness) of my old broken Sansui receiver. Has similar good sound quality as my former Panasonic receiver.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I live in the greater Chicago area. The earlier than expected arrival date of the product was a plus.

          Comments about Yamaha 2 Channel Black Natural Sound Stereo Receiver:

          I bought the R-S700 Yamaha receiver at the ABT store to replace a failing 28 year old Harmon Kardon receiver. ABT did not have the receiver hooked up in their listening room, so I was somewhat nervous about buying a piece of audio equipment without listening to it.

          There was nothing to be nervous about. The Yamaha receiver sounds way better than the old HK receiver ever did. The new receiver just woke up my Infinity tower speakers and I am hearing more detail from every audio source that I listen to. ABT gave me a great price on the receiver, too. I

            Comments about Yamaha 2 Channel Black Natural Sound Stereo Receiver:

            The RS700 was purchased to replace a 29 year old Harmon Kardon receiver. What a difference. The clarity of sound is great with all music sources, including FM radio, CD player, phonograph, and audio streamed via an Apple Airport Express from my computer and Iphone.

            My favorite feature of the receiver is the CD Direct Amp. According to the manual the CD Direct Amp switch "Routes input signal from your CD player directly to the specially built in amplifier for the CD player". What this switch does on my stereo system (Carver CD player, Infinity Reference speakers)is to make the sound terrific. There is a major improvement of sound quality between playing CD's with the switch on and with the switch off. I'm hearing things in CD's that I have never heard before.

            I should have ditched my old receiver and replaced it with Yamaha sooner.
