Yamaha Black 100W x 2 HiFi Audio Receiver, Model RS201BK

High sound quality and sophisticated design based on Yamaha's rich experiene and high-end model concepts. A HiFi receiver for enjoying excellent sound.

Features:

  • Yamaha high sound quality, created by rich experience and tradition, and high technological expertise
    Yamaha, with a long history of 125 years as a musical instrument maker, also has a high reputation for HiFi components. The R-S201 was created by taking advantage of this rich experience and high technological expertise. Based on the concept of “Natural Sound”, for reproducing all music as it really sounds, and built with scrupulous care from circuit design to basic sound production, even though an entry model it reproduces high sound quality and musically rich sound.
  • 100W x 2 high output power and high sound quality circuit design
    The R-S201, with 100W* × 2 high drive power that's above its class, has a high sound quality design that minimises the length of signal routes and optimises the circuit layout. Positioning the power transformer near the power amp circuit reduces power loss while improving peak power supply capacity to enable high volume output. The signal ground and power supply ground are connected at one point, eliminating mutual interference to achieve a higher S/N ratio. The result is sound filled with clarity and a feeling of openness. 
  • 40 station AM/FM preset tuning
    You can register up to 40 total FM and AM stations that you often listen to, then conveniently select them from either the receiver or the remote control. Auto Preset lets you automatically search for and register FM stations that can be received in your area. Frequencies appear on the display, so even when you want to listen to a new station, you can easily tune to its frequency.
  • Simple and sophisticated design
    The R-S201 inherits the simple and sophisticated design style that Yamaha HiFi audio is famous for. With an elegant hair line finish, it harmonises beautifully with other HiFi audio equipment. The operating buttons and volume knobs also show our commitment to simplicity and ease of use.
  • Speaker selector and speaker terminals for two systems
    Equipped with speaker terminals for two systems, this receiver lets you can connect two sets of speakers. The speaker selector makes it easy to switch between speaker outputs, allowing you to hear the sound from one speaker system (A or B) or from both (A+B).
  • Power saving
    A power management function automatically cuts off the power (switches to standby mode) when the receiver has not been operated for a long time. It can be set to 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours, or off. In addition, power consumption during standby is only 0.5W, achieving good energy saving performance.

    Comments about Yamaha Black 100W x 2 HiFi Audio Receiver:

    Bought this on the Yamaha reputation to replace another receiver that had gone bad.

    The Yamaha has sounded great since I got it set up. For now I am just using two BIC America DV84 speakers with it, hooked up to my TV.

    My only issue is once I went to turn it on, and nothing happened. Had to unplug it and plug it back in for it to work. Could have been the power strip, and has only happened once.

      I purchased this receiver as a replacement for a failed one that runs eight speakers scattered around my garage and yard. The installation into my existing rack only took about five minutes. It has adequate power to runs everything. The sound is surprisingly good for such a reasonable price.

        Comments about Yamaha Black 100W x 2 HiFi Audio Receiver:

        I bought this unit to replace an older stereo system in my shed that had gotten fried by a lightning strike. It also plays over speakers on my back patio. Receiver was very easy to set up. One problem was the "auto stand-by" that shut the unit down every 8 hours. Once I figured out my problem and went into the menu with the remote, I changed the setting for 24 hour continuous play. My other complaint was the weak reception, but I attributed this to the fact of living in a coastal parish outside New Orleans, and more precisely, having the unit inside my metal shed. An outdoor FM antenna (Winegard HD-6010) cured that problem. On the plus side, the sound is great, much better through my outdoor patio speakers than I expected! The Bass and Treble controls help fine tune the sound. Overall, I'm very pleased with the purchase and am considering adding the CD player to "upgrade" the system.

        Great Economy Receiver

        • Smaller Rooms

        Comments about Yamaha Black 100W x 2 HiFi Audio Receiver:

        Usually you get what you pay for, but this time you get more. This receiver sounds great, has the ability to handle the audio output of three computers AND has a very decent AM/FM tuner.

        Admittedly, since the inputs are RCA audio, you may need some adapter cords for computer use, but with the money you'll save on this reveiver, you'll be able to afford them.

        I use this for the audio output of two computers and to listen to classical music on FM.

        I keep it running 24/7 (the best way to make your electronics last much longer) and it stays quite cool at decent listening levels.

        True, the lack of advanced HDMI and Optical inputs prevents this from being classified as a modern Home Theater receiver, but that's NOT what it's supposed to be. What it is meant to be and what it excels at is an economy receiver of remarkable quality.

        It isn't deafeningly loud but with reasonably efficient speakers, it is plenty loud enough for a living room and would also work great in a bedroom.

        One reviewer mentioned that the speaker connectors couldn't handle decent sized wire BUT I found out this was NOT true; you can connect 14-16 guage speaker wire easily IF you tin-solder the ends OR if you are patient.

        Definitely worth the money!!

          Using my R-S201BL as a bedroom / TV amp through headphones. Working great, and exceeds my expectations.

          Not a con since it is documented, but be aware that the only balance control is on the remote.

          While it is a basic reciever, it has good, high quality sound with a large amount of headroom to handle loud passages. No clipping for peaks, and clear tones.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Doubled boxed to prevent shipping damage. Arrived with no problems. Not as fast shipping as, say New Egg, but it is free and no SLS tx. Being patient has it's rewards. Will buy from abt again.

          This unit delivers GREAT sound at a really fair price! If you seek a basic unit that performs, this is a terrific choice. I am not so enthusiastic about the remote (the battery compartment will not seat properly, and there is no way to switch from AM, FM or CD to another component using the remote) but that is of minor importance to me and most users. It WILL handle as many as three other components!

            I use this receiver to power a five room built-in speaker system. Each room has an impedance balancing volume control. The receiver provides nice sound throughout the house at a comfortable volume level. I have not tried the unit at maximum output for long periods.
