Speaker Connections

Yamaha’s Best Amp Yet

At its core, your receiver is powered by an amp -- a wonder of modern electronics engineering, converting a small input circuit to a much larger output one, rather like a highly miniaturized transformer. Experience best-in-class Yamaha sound technology with 100 watts of pure sonic goodness and a reduced signal-noise ratio, courtesy of the R-S202’s superior internal design.

Make Your Music Loud --  Or Soft

Looking for greater control over your signal? With its new continuously variable loudness control, the R-S202 allows you to manually control your music’s balance of high and low frequencies. By compensating for natural loss in the human ear, especially at soft levels, this control gives you full control over your music’s tonal range -- at any volume level.

Automate Your Home Stereo

Tired of starting a track and not hearing anything -- only to realize you never turned your home stereo on? Make that a thing of the past with the R-S202’s Auto Standby feature. The receiver automatically turns itself off after a period of inactivity -- and more importantly, turn themselves right back on again once audio is fed to them.

Understated Minimalism

Experience the cleanly minimalist beauty of Yamaha hi-fi design with with the R-S202. Its easy-to-operate, richly-textured, aluminum front panel with a silver hairline finish contrasts elegantly with the cool, black body. Plus, this care and attention to detail is also showcased on the included remote. Intuitive operation is at your fingertips.

Your basic two channel receiver
Very good entry level two channel receiver. Really needs a phone input. I miss the old Yamaha variable loudness. For what you're paying, though there's little to complain about. It does a good job. I've read many complaints about the volume control. Have to turn it up to 60 to hear it. So, turn it up to 60 . It's just how they're made. It's not hurting anything.

Best two channel receiver available for the money.
If you use this receiver to try to power low efficiency (87dB or less) speakers you will probably be disappointed. Mine powers two Klipsch RP61 ii speakers which have an rating of 95dB and the sound and amount of available volume is admirable.

No way to beat this amplifier for the price
We use it for background music at our store. We had a lower-quality amplifier for about 6 months and the finals burned out. We can get a new one of theirs under warranty but I wandered around the web and found this unit from Yamaha for this great price. It was a no-brainer. We need our music and we don't like our systems to be intermittent. Years (okay, decades) ago, when I was doing professional sound installs for large buildings, Yamaha was by far the most reliable amplifier. Very happy to find this unit at such an affordable price. Installation of course was a breeze and the Bluetooth connection even has some smarts to it (so it's very easy to connect and very easy to digitally interrupt if you want to switch to the tuner).

This product is terrible. I couldn’t get sound out of the speakers unless volume was turned to 50-55- Volume nod goes from 0-100

Does this have a headphone jack?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2018
  Yes, a standard 1/4' jack is provided.
Is there a way to override the auto shutoff?
Brett H on Jul 23, 2018
  Page 12 of the users manual covers use of the Sleep Timer.
Can you hook up the TV to this receiver?
A shopper on May 1, 2018
  As this is a stereo receiver and not an audio/video surround sound receiver, the audio from your TV can be connected to this receiver but not the video.
My unit will not turn on and I've only owned it for 4 months what can I do?
Scott A on Jan 19, 2019
  Thanks for your inquiry! As an authorized dealer, all our products are covered by a manufacturer's warranty. Your unit is still covered by Yamaha, so we recommend contacting them to begin a manufacturer's warranty claim.
I just want to connect it to a marantz pm6006 and use it as a straight up tuner...what about it? y/n
A shopper on Jul 9, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Yamaha R-S202 has a single pair of line outs that could connect to the Marantz Tuner inputs.
is this receiver Turntable compatible?
A shopper on Jul 4, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Yamaha R-S202 is turntable compatible but requires a turntable with a built-in phono pre-amplifier. For use with an older or legacy turntable a stand-alone phono pre-amp is necessary.
Can outdoor Bluetooth speakers connect to this receiver?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2020
  Thank you for your question.The Yamaha R-S202 will receive Bluetooth streaming from your hand held device and play through the receiver and its connected speakers. It is not capable of streaming to wireless Bluetooth speakers.
Can I connect a 5 disc cd player instead of a turntable?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2018
  The R-S202 has a CD input.
What is the optimum watt and ohm speaker to use with this receiver?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2018
  The R-S202 is compatible with 4 Ohm nominal impedance speakers, although 6 or 8 Ohm load would be preferable. Power handling of the speaker is not important for the receiver, but you should make sure that the output of the receiver falls within the speaker's recommended range.
Does it have a phono input?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2017
  This receiver does not have a phono input. If your turntable has a built in phono-preamp, you will still be able to connect.
Can I change the Bluetooth connection name? Would
Like to have something more personal and shorter in length. Thanks
A shopper on Dec 16, 2017
  The users manual will refer to whether this is possible.
Can I wire 4 fisher 15 inch tower speakers ( 2 per channel) to it?
Taylor B on Nov 28, 2017
  Thanks for your inquiry! We do not recommend connecting speakers like that, as it can be very very dangerous to the amplifier. When you connect two speakers to one set of taps, you will half the resistance. Your 8 ohm speakers will bridge together, and create a 4 ohm resistance, and this receiver cannot handle a 4 ohm current. As an alternative, I would recommend the Onkyo TX-8220.
Does this have fm radio?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2017
  It does have FM built in.
