In addition to the receiver's aforementioned wireless connectivity, the R-N803 has a coaxial, optical, four stereo RCA, and a phono input for connecting different types of audio sources. Its 1/4" headphone output enables private listening when connecting headphones. This receiver's integrated AM and FM tuners allow you to enjoy free over-the-air content.

Note:
Access to certain Internet-based content may require a subscription to a service.

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.

Vinyl-Ready

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.

This is as much of an integrated Hi-Fi Amplifier as any - If not more. This is not meant for TV. Why do they call it a "Receiver" but the "A-Series" is called an Integrated Amp?
Asked by: Chris
Not a TV receiver but I run my TV through it. It is an internet receiver and works quite well as that. Many internet channels available. It's also a RF AM/FM receiver. I originally bought the integrated amp A-S801 and destroyed by accident. I chose the R-N803 as a replacement as it's more functional across the board.

The Overview copy says "Compatible with popular ...

The Overview copy says "Compatible with popular music streaming services, including Spotify, TIDAL, and Deezer", but the user manual says "airable.Radio service. airable is a service of Tune In GmbH". Are these the same service? Also, is this device rendered inoperative if the streaming service(s), whatever it is, goes out of business like Reciva did?
Asked by: John
I am familiar with neither airable.Radio service nor Tune In GmbH". So, I opened my Yamaha MusiCast App, which can control the receiver a bit easier than the remote control, and didn't find those services on the App. I have not updated the firmware on the receiver since I bought it, so those services might have been added later. I just don't know. I am sure that yes, if any of the streaming services goes out of business then you can't receive them! But, you should continue to be able to receive other paid streaming services, if you subscribe to them, and also the free streaming services. In addition, you can use the receiver with TV, CD players, Turntables...etc. So, if one streaming service goes out of business you obviously will not receive that service, but it will not render the receiver "inoperative", because you will still be able to use it with all those other things.

question

Can this drive two pair of 4 ohm speakers?
Asked by: Robert B.
No, only 2 pairs of 8 ohm or 16 ohm speakers can be driven at the same time. Only 1 pair of 4 ohm can be driven at a time. This information comes directly from the user manual on Yamaha's product page.
