Will this receiver stream Bluetooth to headphones?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Yamaha RX-602 has Bluetooth streaming capability to wireless Bluetooth headphones.
I will use this with a Golden ear passive sound bar. Is 60 watts enough power?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Yamaha receivers 55 watts RMS per channel, 20 to 20K @0.09% THD should drive your passive soundbar just fine. Without knowing the Goldenear model number, their passive soundbars recommended amplification is 20 200 watt/channel.
Do you have an amp with a RF remote?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2019
  The Yamaha is not equipped for an RF remote, however, it does have App Control option for your smart phone. As well as MusicCast to stream wirelessly to remote speakers controlled by the MusicCast App on your smart phone / tablet.
Does it need 120V/60Hz power supply? Or 50/60Hz?
ENRM - on Apr 25, 2019
  All Yamaha products sold in the U.S.A. are 120V, 60Hz.
