ToP-ART Design
The ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) design of the R-N803 is engineered to faithfully preserve the integrity of the audio signals by combining a symmetrical left/right circuit layout and signal directness (straight, short signal paths), a rigid, low-vibration chassis, and an "Art Base" resin frame fashioned to absorb and block unnecessary vibration for enhanced sonic purity and accurate stereo imaging of the music.
Low-Impedance, High-Power Amp
The R-N803 utilizes a high-power amp featuring a single push-pull structure using eight bipolar-type power transistors (four each for left and right) as its output terminals. Impedance is lowered by minimizing the lengths of the audio signal paths in the circuit design to achieve an enhanced drive power with a maximum output of 145W per channel.
YPAO (Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer)
The R-N803 is equipped with YPAO technology, which is designed to measure the shape of the room, the material of the wall, and the position of the speaker, then automatically adjust the sound to create the appropriate response and sonic quality. Other YPAO functions are also available, including YPAO - Reflected Sound Control, which is designed to actively correct the early reflection sounds that influence sound quality, and YPAO Volume, engineered to apply high-precision EQ (equalization), with 192 kHz/64-bit operation for an enhanced listening environment. Additionally, after a scheduled future firmware update, you can control the YPAO feature and display the analysis results with the MusicCast app.
Supports High-Resolution Music
The R-N803 is compatible with high-resolution sound sources, such as DSD 5.6 MHz native and AIFF, WAV, FLAC 192 kHz/24-bit, as well as Apple Lossless 96 kHz/24-bit files. It uses a SABRE 9006AS 192 kHz/24-bit DAC (from ESS Technology) to deliver enhanced S/N performance.
Hi-Fi Everything
From your smartphone, networked audio, streaming services, or the TV, you'll enjoy Hi-Fi quality with enhances sonic integrity on everything you hear with the R-N803.
Digital Audio Input for TV or Blu-ray Players
The R-N803 is equipped for digital audio with both optical and coaxial inputs. The optical is for receiving audio from a display, and the coaxial is for receiving audio from a Blu-ray player. The audio stays in the digital domain, helping to provide pure, dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources.
Enjoy playback of your vinyl records by plugging your turntable into the phono input of the R-N803.
Fingertip Control
Tap, swipe, and control your music with the free MusicCast app, which can also control other optional MusicCast devices.

    Yamaha R-N803BL reviews

    R-N803 Stereo Network Receiver is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sound, but cheap knobs and overall looks Yamaha got the guts right, but I really am not thrilled with what seems to be a lack of attention to details. To be sure, this receiver has very good sound quality although. Not great, but very good.� However, the knobs are very cheep, the display is small and the general build quality seems below par. When you're buying only two channels and paying a heft price, I think you should be able to expect more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Receiver This is a modern receiver, with networking that works out of the box on both PC and Mac. I strongly suggest a wired connection for best uninterrupted performance. Cable service net connection is good. DSL drops out frequently, not a Receiver fault. USB is flawless. Plays my entire music collection, regardless of rights management. AirPlay is high quality sound. Control by Bluetooth on a tablet or phone is sweet. I like and use the multiple Optical connections. Easy upgrade to firmware is hopeful for future developments, but manual is wrong about procedure. After an upgrade appears, and you confirm install, hit the "Display" button on the front panel to complete the install. Net Radio is a bit clumsy for channel change button press sequence, but works well. I wish for a way to manually enter Net Radio addresses. "Pure Direct" feature does make a hearable difference in dynamic range, even from a modest CD Player.�A preamp output loop would have been a nice enhancement, but not present. I have already recommended this Receiver to a friend who bought one. We both are spending more time with our music, the best recommendation.
