Product Information

T-S500 Home Theater AM/FM HiFi Stereo Tuner

A user-friendly tuner that provides convenient tuning functions and a high visibility, two-line display. Uses Yamahas new HiFi component design that matches the A-S500 Integrated Amplifier.


T-S500 Features:

  • 40-station AM/FM preset tuning: All 40 stations can be accessed with two turns of the rotary encoder knob, after which it stops. Favorite stations can be set at either end for greater convenience.
  • Auto FM Station Memory: Automatically presets the 40 strongest FM stations on the dial so you dont have to select and preset them manually.
  • Multi-Status Station Memory: Thanks to Multi-Status Station Memory, each station memory includes the parameters set when it was memorized, for optimum quality each time it is selected.
  • 2-line, 16-character (5x7 dot matrix) display: This high and wide display offers better visibility than previous types (1-line, 11-character displays). It provides a larger amount of more precise information, making the tuning operation easier.
  • Auto search and manual tuning: Allows the remote control from Yamaha Integrated Amplifiers (including the A-S500) to control the tuner

High quality, basic AM/FM tuner.
I have been very happy with the Yamaha A-S501 amplifier and CD-S300 I have installed in my bedroom, so when I decided to add a tuner I looked to Yamaha again.

The tuner has very simple intuitive controls. It only took me a few minutes to set it up and fill in the pre-sets with the automatic tuning.

The FM reception is very good. I don't use AM much, but I had to move the antenna around a bit before I could get good reception of the one station I do listen to (KYW). Most likely my fault for poor antenna placement.

The sound quality of the FM reception is very good. It is very clear and rich, and compares favorably to my 1970s Sansui receiver.

One thing I love about this series of components is that there are no lights on them when powered off. This is very nice for a bedroom installation, but it also means they cannot be powered on via remote. This is fine for me, but may not be right for every situation.

The tuner doesn't come with a remote, but can be controlled by the one that comes with Yamaha's line of Integrated amps. If you are going to use it with any other brand of amp, you may want a harmony remote.

There are very few separate tuners on the market, and this is one of the more inexpensive ones. It's the obvious best choice if you have a Yamaha integrated amp, and would be a very good choice with others if you are not concerned about the remote.

Great tuner
I am very pleased with my Yamaha T-S500 am/fm stereo tuner.

Simple to use and operate. Very good reception with a dipole antenna.

I was able to use the remote control that came with my Yamaha integrated amplifier.

Thank you World Wide Stereo for the recommendation and prompt shipping
