YAMAHA R-S500 Natural Sound Stereo Receiver

 

Yamaha -- not much else to say. great sound, easy to use and it shipped quickly

only con is radio station set-up as I need the manual to add stattions to pre-set but I can't believe this is the only receiver to have this issue, nor me be the only user with this "issue" minor as it is

another great Yamaha receiver

 

My previous Yamaha gave me 13 years of daily use and it was time for an upgrade when one the speaker channels began to short out. I use it at least 5-7 hours daily so it owed me nothing. I love this new model. It has the same features as my previous...

Yamaha R-S500 AM/FM Receiver

 

If you love classical music CD's this is for you. Power, clarity, timbre and atmosphere; puts my old Marantz to shame. Makes my 30 year old Technics speakers sound like a state of the art system. There's also receptacles for a second set of speakers in...
