    Yamaha R-S202BL Stereo Receiver

    Yamaha, the most trusted brand in home audio, adds Bluetooth® compatibility in this Hi-Fi receiver for easy wireless access to streaming music services and music on your smartphone or other devices. Enjoy the connectivity and the outstanding and legendary quality of Yamaha natural sound.


    Heritage of Technical Expertise
    Rooted in technology and expertise. The R-S202 was created from years of experience and technological expertise in receiver design. With a music heritage that runs over 125 years deep, our passion and reputation for Hi-Fi was born from the music side and extended into electronics. The concept of natural sound is based on reproducing music as it would be experienced live. Built with scrupulous care from the circuit design to basic sound reproduction, the R-S202 reproduces high-quality, musically-rich sound for the entry level consumer.
    High-Power Output
    Never peak. The R-S202, with two channels of 100 W high-power output* that are above its class, has a high-quality sound design that minimizes the length of signal routes and optimizes the circuit layout. Positioning the power transformer near the amp circuit reduces power loss while improving peak power supply capacity to enable high volume output. The signal ground and power supply ground connect at one point, eliminating mutual interference to achieve a higher S/N ratio. The result is sound clarity stripped of noise and other signals. 
    *8 ohms, 40 Hz-20 kHz, 0.2% THD
    Bluetooth® to Streaming Music Services
    Connect wirelessly. The R-S202 provides Bluetooth functionality to let you enjoy streaming music from smart phones and other devices. Use your device to select the songs from your library and hear them with the legendary quality of Yamaha sound.
    40 Station AM/FM Preset Tuning
    All your stations. Register up to 40 favorite FM and AM stations, then conveniently select them from either the receiver or the remote control. Auto preset lets you automatically search for and register FM stations. Frequencies appear on the display, so when you want to listen to a new station, you can quickly and easily dial it in.
    Simple and Sophisticated Design
    Less is more. The R-S202 inherits the simple, sophisticated design style for which Yamaha Hi-Fi audio is famous. With an elegant brushed finish, it harmonizes beautifully with other audio equipment. The Yamaha commitment to beauty and sophistication are demonstrated in the finish and ease of control, giving the user a premium audio experience.
    Speaker Selector
    Check one, two. Equipped with speaker terminals for two systems, this receiver lets you connect two sets of speakers. The speaker selector makes it easy to switch between outputs, allowing you to hear the sound from one speaker system (A or B) or both (A+B). Try the Yamaha NS-6490 bookshelf speakers and the YST-SW216 powered subwoofer with the R-S202 for an ultimate stereo system.
    Power Saving
    Go Green. A power management function automatically switches to standby mode. It can be set to two, four, eight or 12 hours or turned off. Power consumption during standby is only 0.5 W, achieving good energy saving performance.

    Good morning. I would like to put a wireless speaker in a room away from the receiver. Can I do this by using either the A or B speaker selection and a Bluetooth speaker? Is this receiver capable of handling surround sound?
    A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This is a stereo (2 channel) receiver. Not meant for home theater. The Bluetooth option is a built in input within the receiver. If you wanted to add speakers in another room, you'd have to run speaker wires to standard passive speakers. The internal Bluetooth in the receiver is only meant to pair with a source like a cell phone to stream audio to the receiver. Hope this helps.
    If i have line level signals going into this receiver, am i limited to the type of speakers i can connect (only speakers that receive RCA/line out)? Or am i able to have the line level RCA's going in, and then have speakers connected to this receiver?
    A shopper on Feb 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use the speaker out, I connected 2 Yamaha speakers to the connection and it works fine, I'm fixing to add 2 more speakers to make it sound deeper.
    does it have phono input ?
    Edward V on Sep 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No. There is no dedicated turntable input, but there are four pairs of RCA jacks. Depending on the output on your turntable, you may need a phono preamp.
    Does the 12 5/8-inch depth include the volume knob and any protrusions on the back panel? This unit would be going on a 12 3/4-inch shelf. I need the front footers to remain on the shelf and allow a little clearance in the back of the unit for making connections. Thanks.
    A shopper on Jan 1, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: From the back of the cabinet to the front edge of the front feet is 10.5". The entire unit is a little over 11" minus the knob. So, a 12 3/4" shelf would allow 1" behind for connections and the knob will sick out approximately 1/4-1/2" past the shelf face.
    I have in wall speakers through out my house and am wondering if this Yamaha R-S202BL would be good paired with a 6-CHANNEL SPEAKER SELECTOR for music, or if I should keep my Home Theater AVR hooked up and purchase another Home Theater AVR for our main TV room ?
    A shopper on Jan 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I purchased one of these units for a whole house music system and it works great. The Bluetooth connectivity works great. Your question is like comparing apples with oranges. If you want a good receiver that has Bluetooth pairing for a music only system, then this is an awesome product.

    Yamaha R-S202BL Stereo Receiver
    Excellent Receiver - exactly what I needed. Powers 2 Klipsch RP-160M speakers with music provided by 2 CD players, one a single platter and one a 5 platter plus a 125gb Samsung USB flash drive with 64GB of continuous available music. The music never stop. Thanks for excellent service.

    Everything you need and nothing you don't - good bluetooth range
    I liked this receiver because it was simple, inexpensive and had built in Bluetooth. The range was very good - over 100 ft with a clear line of sight. Plenty of power and enough inputs.
    Some setup requires the remote at first. The user interface could be a little better but overall it is a great value.
    One complaint on the shipping - monoprice did not box it so it ships in the Yamaha box with all of the graphics on the outside. My UPS guy did not think he should leave it on the porch so I had to go pick it up since I was not there to receive it. I wish they would notify you that a signature required.

    Great Unit
    I am very happy with this unit.

    It sounds great and the bluetooth is a great feature. My wife uses it with Spotify and Pandora. I only use the unit for LPs and CDs. Sound quality is excellent across the board.

    There are no RCA outputs for speakers. Everything is speaker wire but I found RCA to speaker wire adapter on Amazon for $8.00.

    Great Amp
    Love the Yamaha R-S202BL. Works great and the Bluetooth connection is simple and seamless. Runs a tad warm but it does not seem to affect performance.

    Yamaha Doesn't Dissapoint
    Yamaha is as advertised and was exactly what I needed for two sets of porch/patio speakers. Hard to find a receiver with A and B speakers.

    What I was expecting
    This receiver does the trick for what I was expecting. I needed something inexpensive that I could use for TV, Record Player, CD Changer, etc. to replace an old Sony I had from the 90s. There is nothing fancy about this unit, and I wish it had a little more bass presence, but overall I am happy with this for the price. The Bluetooth functionality is a nice extra.
