Being a guitarist for the better part of my life I’ve learned a few things about sound and the devices that produce it. Sometimes, a complex circuit can provide an amazing sound — like my Fryette CLX Tube head.

Love it - the extra power it has compared to the RS 500 mattered to me because of the space I use it for. Nice rich deep natural sound on all components. I got the power so that even at lower loudness and volume, I get the sound of a more powerful signal for the space.

    Nice rich deep sound for all musical lovers of all music genres, from Ravel to Coltrane to Hendrix.

  • -

    The leap in price from the RS 500 to 700 is unfortunate - but it is worth consideration if you need nice sound for a high ceiling mid size to large living room, otherwise the RS 500 will do fine. I owned or own both.

I recently acquired Bose 901 speakers and only a handful of receivers can accommodate them in a reasonable price range. Yamaha makes a fine product as this is my second Yamaha receiver over a span of 30 years.

I bought this receiver to replace an aging Yamaha R-750 that was just shy of 25 years old. The R-750 replaced an older Yamaha receiver that was about ten years old when it was stolen in a break-in.

This receiver is a great buy! First the set up - I am using it for my audio needs only and it is ideal for the problem I faced. I have very good quality, highly efficient 4 ohm custom speakers in a combined cabinet with a ten inch non-powered sub woofer isolated compartment in each.

I continue to use conventional stereo equipment, and needed to replace my old receiver. But because I use Bose 901 speakers requiring insertion of an active equalizer between the pre- and power- amplifiers, there are few receivers now available which provide that capability.

Love it . Feels like a high end receiver for the price well worth the investment .

    Everything about it . Got it for just my vinyls and CD player . Everything I wanted in a 2channel . Simple and efficient .

  • -

    None really . Maybe wish the knobs were metal or aluminum like the rest of the receiver .

Much like buying a vintage receiver with a full factory warranty. I did not wish to spend a lot of money but I wanted a quality product. Also, I did not want another AV receiver with features I really did not want nor would probably never use. I use the unit to listen to music not for movies.

    Clarity of sound, Adequate Power, Runs Cool

where do i start with this piece of crap receiver? hey, if you like to listen to your music or whatever at a low volume, then this is for you. if you wanna rock at a higher volume, then forget about it.

The Sound of this receiver is real clear! The output/input for the looping allows plug an equalizer (in my case, cygnus ge-400) . I more than recommend this
