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.
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.
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.
New Speaker Terminals
These high grade speaker terminals have silver plating for best connection and outstanding durability. The pitch between jacks is wider for easier insertion.
Dual aluminum-extruded heat sinks
Dual aluminum-extruded heat sinks ensure effective heat dissipation and help achieve crisp, clean sound.
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 commonmode 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.
Subwoofer Out lets you connect a subwoofer for stronger bass and better overall sound quality.
Preout/Main In jacks let you connect other components to enhance the versatility and quality of your system.
Power management (Auto power off)
Auto Power Off automatically turns off the power after a certain amount of time to save energy.
New Remote Controls
The R-S300 come supplied with a slim remote unit whose button layout is both easy to understand and use.
This unit allows you to configure a multi-zone audio system. The Zone2 feature allows you to set this unit to reproduce separate input sources in the main zone and the second zone (Zone2). You can control this unit from the second zone using the supplied remote control.
When processing and transmission of the audio signal is simple and direct there is less chance of it being affected by noise and distortion. Yamaha’s amplifier design technology called ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) features I/O (input to output) Direct Symmetrical Design, with left and right channels organized in a straight, symmetrical layout for highest signal purity.
CD Direct Amplification Circuit
Engaged by a front panel switch, it matches CD signal levels so each stage produces less noise, resulting in improved S/N ratio and maintenance of the amp’s total gain balance.
Auto Power Off ?Power Management? automatically turns off the power after a certain amount of time to save energy.
