  • 1Description

With its continued excellence in sound reproduction, Yamaha has once again created a versatile stereo receiver for the music lover in you. The R-S700 Natural Sound Stereo Receiver offers superb functionality and dual-room capability that will be hard to match at this price point. Yamaha exclusive features like ToP-ART (Total Performance Anti-Resonance Technology), multi-zone compatibility, ART Base chassis construction with gold-plated speaker terminals and dual aluminum heat sinks for crisp, clean sound make this an awesome receiver. Most of the receiver's audio processing is handled automatically, with little intervention on your part. However, it is so advanced; its discrete output reproduces music with unmatched sonic clarity and dynamic power.

In a nutshell, the R-S700 is a 2 x 100W (@ 8 ohms) stereo receiver capable of delivering breathtaking stereo sound. It features a ton of input jacks, a subwoofer out, individual treble, bass, and balance controls, Remote Interactive (RI) port, A/B speaker switching, banana plug speaker posts, and an AM/FM tuner.

Zone Control

Multi-Zone Compatibility
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to enjoy your favorite music in more than one room? The R-S700 has a number of specialized functions that make it convenient to use in custom installations. With another receiver or amplifier plus a pair of speakers in a second room, the people in both rooms can hear the music that is playing. You can even put a pair of speakers in a third room and listen there as well. What's more, you can control playback of the main system from the second room with the Zone 2 remote control
12V Trigger Out (Control Out)
The 12V trigger output can be used to automatically power on the components in Zone 2 when the main power is turned on. Output is a high 100mA, so relay operation is possible
Main/Zone 2 Power Link
When you switch on the R-S700 in the main room, the unit in Zone 2 will also come on
Remote (IR) 2 In/Out and Remote 2 In
These terminals let you connect an IR signal receiver for wireless remote control between the Main Zone and Zone 2
Speaker A/B and A+B Selection
Enjoy music in a third room. Just connect a second pair of speakers to the Speaker B terminals and you can listen to either pair or both of them at the same time
Dedicated Zone Remote Control
The R-S700 provides a second remote unit for controlling operation of the main system from Zone 2
The Look and Texture of Quality
Offers the look and feel of the top-class A-S2000, with elegant aluminum front panel and silky touch volume/selector knobs. You can feel Yamaha's commitment to quality when you touch the knobs
ToP-ART Sound Quality Design
ToP-ART (Total Performance Anti-Resonance Technology) design uses a symmetrical layout for accurate sound field reproduction and the ART Base to eliminate effects from external vibration
Pure Direct
Music signals travel the shortest possible route, bypassing the buffer amp and tone, loudness and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation for the purest sound quality
New Speaker Terminals
These high grade speaker terminals have gold plating for best connection and outstanding durability. The pitch between jacks is wider for easier insertion
Highest Quality Parts
The quality of each individual part, as well as how they work together, basically determines the sound quality of any component. Yamaha uses only very high quality parts, carefully selected and tested
Continuously Variable Loudness Control
Our ears lose sensitivity to high and low frequencies at low volume levels. This control lets you turn down the volume while maintaining the optimum frequency response
Special Power Supply for Clear iPod Sound
The iPod dock has an independent power supply to prevent operating or charging current from the iPod from flowing into the amp ground signal. This ensures optimum iPod sound quality
Balanced System for Minimal Noise
An unbalanced interface is subject to common mode voltage noise, so Yamaha uses a balanced system to receive the iPod signal. This makes a significant contribution to reducing noise in the system for higher sound quality
New Remote Controls
The R-S700 preset remote control is designed to make it easy to operate the receiver's many functions. The R-S700 provides a second remote that allows system control from Zone 2
