Yamaha High Sound Quality, Created by Rich Experience and Tradition and High Technological Expertise

Yamaha, with a long history of 125 years as a musical instrument maker, also has a high reputation for Hi-Fi components. The R-S201 was created by taking advantage of this rich experience and high technological expertise. Based on the concept of “Natural Sound”, for reproducing all music as it really sounds and built with scrupulous care from circuit design to basic sound production, even though an entry model it reproduces high sound quality and musically rich sound.

100 W x 2 High Output Power* and High Sound Quality Circuit Design

The R-S201, with 100 W* x 2 high drive power that's above its class, has a high sound quality design that minimizes the length of signal routes and optimizes the circuit layout. Positioning the power transformer near the power amp 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.

*8 ohms, 40 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.2% THD

40 Station AM/FM Preset Tuning

AM/FM Tuning You can register up to 40 total FM and AM stations that you often listen to, then conveniently select them from either the receiver or the remote control. Auto preset lets you automatically search for and register FM stations that can be received in your area. 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

Elegant Hair Line Finish The R-S201 inherits the simple and sophisticated design style that Yamaha Hi-Fi audio is famous for. With an elegant hair line finish, it harmonizes beautifully with other Hi-Fi audio equipment. The operating buttons and volume knobs also show our commitment to simplicity and ease of use.

Very good bang for the buck

Pros: It's a great receiver with very basic functionality. I like its simplicity. It sounds fantastic, and many people swear by Yamaha receviers

Cons: * The front looks very basic and sparse.
* There's 5.1 receivers around this price, and some of them are Pioneers, which is a company I do like.

I researched this quite a bit. For stereo receivers, many people say Yamaha is one of the best choices. I hear that they are better over Sherwood, Sony, Insignia, and Onkyo for stereo.

This has proven to be a quality receiver. The 5.1 receivers around the price of this unit usually aren't as high quality.

I also just wanted stereo so that I just have to buy two speakers. Even if I step up to 5.1 or higher, I'll still keep this receiver around. Some people desire stereo for music since 5.1 receivers sometimes run a DSP effect on music, which can ruin the purity of the track
