Yamaha RP-U200 review


These days, there are many convergence products designed to unite your computer and stereo so that the content available on PCs can be heard on a proper sound system. Yamaha's RP-U200 receiver might be the most sophisticated of these devices to date....

A host of relevant digital and analog inputs and outputs; incredibly clean sound; powerful PC software interface.

Expensive; DVD digital surround sound works with only some PC configurations; USB audio can skip during multitasking.

If you have the cash, this DAR turns your PC into a great-sounding, surround-sound home-theater system.

Product Specifications

Yamaha introduces its computer-based external audio soundboards with the consideration that the computer is now becoming an important audio source. Designated as CAVIT (Convergence of Audio/Video and Information Technology), the new line of products ushers a new category by bringing high-quality audio reproduction and surround sound technologies to the computer by USB. RP-U200 receiver is the ultimate discreet audio system available for computers. It converts your computer into a PC-gamers dream machine. With plenty of power to all 5 channels this systems is ideal for movies, music and more. Get into the action; immerse yourself in computer games, and DVD movies directly from your computer. With Yamaha's new features including Dolby Digital and DTS for computer use this system is way ahead of the rest. Are you serious about gaming and are ready to enjoy your audio? Then this system is a must-have! Rather than process audio within the computer, the RP-U200 is linked to a computer via an USB cable that takes the audio from the computer digitally for processing within the amplifier's processor. The result is a pure and accurate audio signal. 24-bit / 96-kHz audio playback delivers true digital audio fidelity from sources. The "Tuner" input button activates the RP-U200's onboard FM stereo radio. The presets are stored on the PC's hard drive and activated via software GUI. Stations can be grouped by category - rock, classical, talk, etc. - or each group can be assigned to a family member. Each category can hold up to 8 stations, and the first five categories can be accessed from the receiver as well as from the computer. The RP-U200 is compatible with all most popular computer audio formats including MP3, WMA, DVD, computer games, Extended Wave File Multi-Channel sound, and Direct Sound 3D, as well as it provides Yamaha's DSP. The RP-U200 is compatible with Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Mac OS 9.1 or higher.
