One House. One Receiver.

Slave other receivers in another room to it, and have everybody listen to your favorite music, no matter where they are in your house. Or connect a pair of speakers in a third room. Control from your home theater with the dedicated Zone 2 remote. 

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 superior Yamaha sound technology as the current goes from input to output in a straight, symmetrical current, courtesy their Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology (ToP-ART) concept. 

The Shortest Current for the Best Sound 

In modern electronic circuitry, current passes through many “gates” -- and each gate the circuit passes through causes infinitesimal signal degradation. This is what causes distortion in the sound output. The R-S700’s Pure Direct Mode solves this issue; by having sound signals bypass the buffer amp, tone, and loudness and balance controls, the signal doesn’t degrade, and distortion is nipped in the bud. 

Easy Volume Control 

Looking for greater control over your signal? With its new continuously variable loudness control, the R-S700 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. 

Understated Minimalism 

Experience the cleanly minimalist beauty of Yamaha hi-fi design with with the R-S700. 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 comes through on the included remote. Intuitive operation is at your fingertips.
