100W Per Channel Output Power, Optimized Circuit Design

Along with two 100W (8 Ohm, 40 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.2% THD) channels, the R-S201 Receiver offers a 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 with enhanced clarity.

Bluetooth Streaming Music Services

The R-S202 provides Bluetooth functionality to let you enjoy streaming music from smartphones and other devices. Use your device to select the songs from your library and enjoy.

40-Station AM/FM Preset Tuning

You can store a total of up to 40 AM and FM stations, then select the station from either the receiver or the remote control. The Auto Preset feature lets you automatically search for and store FM stations within range. Frequencies appear on the display, so even when you want to listen to a new station, you can easily tune to its frequency.

Natural Sound Reproduction

The R-S201 Receiver is based on the concept of Natural Sound for reproducing music as it originally sounded.

Power Saving

A power management function automatically 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 turned off. In addition, the receiver consumes 0.5W in standby mode, offering energy-saving performance.

Speaker Selector and Speaker Terminals for 2 Systems

Equipped with speaker terminals for 2 systems, the built-in 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 and B).

Simple Design

The R-S201 Receiver features a simple design with minimal connections, buttons, and knobs.

I replaced an older Yamaha Natural Sound AX-900 amplifier that had run its course and had a bad left channel. I was worried that I would be giving up quite a bit...going from a 900 series to a 200 series. Not so--this receiver gives plenty of power and warm sound. Plus, my old one did not have Bluetooth!

100 Watts/Channel RMS, all electronic 1970s Dream Come True!

Solid power -- it drives my Polk bookcase speakers well and I really feel their presence. Full electronic switching which allows use of remote control. Five line inputs, Bluetooth input and an FM tuner. A / B speaker outputs as well. Compared w/ my NAD 3020 amp & old set of Bose speakers - superior. Also, it's very durable. I dragged it onto a concrete floor by its antenna, hit hard, but no damage. So much more to say, like the infinite volume knob, but I'm out of space. (did I mention the low price?)

It's sleek, easy to use, and great sound and it becomes even more of a value with its price! LOVE the remote as well. Didn't think I'd use it because it is just to the left of me on my home desk, but I use it far more than the dials and buttons on the receiver. My BEST receiver yet!

Simple and awesome

I have had this receiver for about two years, and I am really happy with it. I am so glad Yamaha came out with a product like this. Totally bear bones, no-frills with just the two things you really need: bluetooth connectivity so you can play from any device, and clean, powerful amplification. To get this kind of power and sound quality in an AVR you are going to be paying several times the price, and your money will be going toward a lot of features you may not need - loads of HDMI inputs, surround sound processors, etc. For home theater you need it. But for a two-channel system it is just wasted money. I have paired this Yamaha with different bookshelf speakers up and down the range. Currently I have them connected to some Mordaunt-Short Mezzo 2s and let me tell you - they sound so clear and beautiful, and they can REALLY KICK! Compared to the price of some of the powered bluetooth speaker systems out there, for similar money you can get this receiver and a pair of budget bookshelves and have something infinitely better. Great buy!

Can I use 4 ohm speakers into this receiver?

Can I use 4 ohm speakers into this receiver?
Asked by: Tim
Yes, you can connect speakers of any impedance to to this receiver. With that being said, the performance of this amplifier will vary depending on the power requirements of the speakers and the volume you are trying to play at. The lower the impedance of the speaker the greater the wattage output of the receiver could be. As with any receiver, volume should never be run so high that you experience distortion in the speakers; this would indicate the amplifier is too powerful for your speakers. If you are experiencing clean sound, but the amplifier is overheating and shutting itself off, you are running the receiver too "hot" (volume too high to accommodate for sudden spikes like a cymbal crash or thunder) and would need a receiver with more watts per channel.

Can I pair that with JBL Stage A120 speakers (6 ohms)?
Asked by: Luis
Those JBLs are rated at 6 Ohms nominal, and JBL suggest an Amp up to 125 Watts . At (8/6/4/2 ohms) the Amp is rated to output up to (125 W / 150 W / 165 W / 180 W), so for those JBLs that would be up to 150. As long as you stay away from distorted output at high volume you should be just fine, but I would look for speakers that can handle a bit more power. And I would look for an opinion from the B&H experts - they know their stuff.

connecting R-S202 to Pioneer FS52 Floor standing ...

connecting R-S202 to Pioneer FS52 Floor standing speakers should I use regular wiring or bi-wiring? Which is one is better?
Asked by: sunil
A darn good question. Bi-wiring is a worthwhile endeavor that reduces the overall resistance of the wiring between an amplifier and the speakers, impacting the damping factor (control of the woofers), improving current carrying capability, etc. It is particularly useful in the high-end audiophile world where 10s of thousands have been invested in each of the components. Specifically, one set is used to power the woofers, the other to power the mid-range/tweeter. In rare cases, tri-wiring is done to further split the mid-range and tweeter. In your case, while essentially never done, speaker wires being used are all too often very thin (18-20 gauge is all too common) and the lengths can be long (audiophiles on the other hand go through great lengths, pun intended, to keep their speakers wire lengths to a minimum). And so, if you've purchase bulk speaker wire on a roll and have plenty to spare, go ahead and do it. In fact, do an experiment after you have and see if you can tell the difference with it and without it. However.... I've looked t the back of your speaker and there are NOT dual terminals, one set for the woofers and one set for the mid/tweeter with a bridging strap between them. In other words, you CANNOT do genuine bi-wiring, where one separates the speaker wires for the different drivers in the speakers. Simply using multiple speaker wires crammed onto the same set of connections at the amplifier or speaker is not actually the concept of bi-wiring. And so I correct myself - skip it. Assuming you are buying bulk wire on a roll, simply buy the lowest gauge (thickest wire) you can find (14-16 would be great in your application).

question

I am surprised to notice that practically there is no sound until the volume is raised to 40 to 45. Is this a device problem or normal for this product?

It may vary somewhat depending on the connected speakers and listening mode. Try headphones also.
