The black R-S201 HiFi Stereo Receiver from Yamaha delivers high sound quality. This receiver supports a total of up to 40 FM and AM stations. You can conveniently select the station from either a receiver or by a remote control. The Auto Preset feature lets you automatically search for FM stations.

Equipped with speaker terminals for 2 systems, this receiver lets you connect 2 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).

High Sound Quality
The R-S201 Receiver is based on the concept of Natural Sound for reproducing music as it really sounds. Built with scrupulous care in circuit design for basic sound production, this receiver reproduces high quality sound.
Two 100W High Output Power and High Sound Quality Circuit Design
Along with two 100W (8Ω, 40 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.2% THD) channels, the R-S201 Receiver offers a high sound quality circuit design that minimizes the length of signal routes and optimizes the circuit layout. Positioning the power transformer near the power amplifier 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 a total of up to 40 FM and AM stations and then conveniently select the station from either a receiver or via a remote control. The Auto Preset feature lets you automatically search for FM stations. 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 Receiver features a simple and sophisticated design, and its elegant hairline finish blends in with your other HiFi audio equipment. The operating buttons and volume knobs are simple and easy to use.
Speaker Selector and Speaker Terminals for 2 Systems
Equipped with speaker terminals for 2 systems, this receiver lets you connect 2 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 can be turned off. In addition, the receiver consumes only 0.5W in standby mode, offering good energy-saving performance.
Other Notable Features
Other notable features of this receiver include a simple design remote control and a headphone terminal.

            Very decent entry-level stereo receiver. Has good build quality, nice design (matter of personal taste), enough power and other quality specication for most people, with remote and AM/FM it is a nice package worth $[$] price tag.

              Very good sound to the four speakers (two 4 ohm Onkyo, and 2 6 ohm Aiwa) I've connected to this Yamaha system. Multiple audio inputs (3 lines) made it possible to send sound from the computer, satellite receiver and DVD player through this unit to make it the heart of my audio system in the master bedroom.

              For those of us who appreciate simple stereo without all the modern whiz-bang of surroundiness.
              Nice sound from my collection of vinyl and those modern cd's.
