Product Details

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

High sound quality and sophisticated design based on Yamaha's rich experience 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:

Was looking for a simple stereo to use for tv sound enhancement and listening to music. This fit the bill perfectly. Very easy to set up and operate. The included antenna leaves much to be desired, but I have noticed that is the case with most receivers. Easy fix with a different antenna. Keep in mind that the sound is only going to be as good as your speakers. I was not impressed when I first hooked this up to a small pair of polk bookshelf speakers. Then I added an old (30+ years) pair of kenwood floor speakers and it sounds fantastic. I think todays speakers are built to use with subwoofers. Back in the 70's and 80's we didn't need subs because the speakers had 10-15" woofers built in. Plenty of power. The volume goes to 100 but I could only go to 80 comfortably. Noticed no distortion whatsoever. TV sound is greatly improved. Music via radio and cd is very impressive. I am very happy with this unit and it has exceeded my expectations for the price.

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

      Great receiver for the price. This is my fourth or fifth Yamaha receiver and my first bottom of the line one. Sound is just as good as all of the high priced ones. However, I had to exchange the first one as during the first month it would not turn on five or six times until you unplugged it and then plugged it back in. Have only had the replace a few weeks but this problem has not reoccurred. My only real complaint is the use of the cheap spring clip speaker wire connections. Also, although I always listen to music flat, there seems to be little if any differential when using the teble and bass controls.

        I use the system to control speakers in 3 rooms and outside, primarily in 2 rooms, and it does the job perfectly, with plenty of power. Setup was easy, although I didn't use the included antenna, but one that I had used with my previous receiver. I'm very pleased with the product.

          I listen to clasic rock,R&B,jazz and some clasical havent found anything that the R-S201 didn't do justice to clean sound at any volume level. My only complaint about the reciever would be the antena that was included. I had to buy an aftermarket antena, but now recive FM stations from 150 mi. distant! Easy to set up and use!

            This is a hi-value, fair-priced product with good performance, good features and a superbly simple industrial design front. Great for a basic first system or as a killer 2d one, as in my case. Well-written user manual and a surprisingly good AM section in the tuner. This has been a treat to own. Can't miss with Yamaha in my experience.

              Basic receiver for general requirements. Had it for one month. More practical for me than the HTR-5940 I had earlier (didn't need or use most of the bells and whistles on the 5940). R-s201 is quite easy to use.

              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.
