Yamaha High Sound Quality, Created by Rich Experience and Tradition and High Technological Expertise

Yamaha, with a long history - 125 years - as a musical instrument maker, also has a high reputation for Hi-Fi components. The R-S201 was created by taking advantage of this rich experience and high technological expertise. It's based on the concept of "Natural Sound" for reproducing any kind of music as it really sounds, built with scrupulous care from circuit design to basic sound production.

Two 100-Watt High Output Power* and High Sound Quality Circuit Design

The R-S201, with 2 x 100W* high drive power above its class, has a high sound quality design that minimizes the length of signal routes and optimizes the circuit layout. Positioning the power transformer near the power amp circuit reduces power loss while improving peak power supply capacity to enable high volume output. The signal ground and power supply ground are connected at one point, eliminating mutual interference to achieve a higher S/N ratio. The result is sound filled with clarity and a feeling of openness.

40 Station AM/FM Preset Tuning

You can register up to 40 total FM and AM stations that you often listen to, then conveniently select them from either the receiver or the remote control. Auto preset lets you automatically search for and register FM stations that can be received in your area. Frequencies appear on the display, so even when you want to listen to a new station, you can easily tune to its frequency.

Simple and Sophisticated Design

The R-S201 inherits the simple and sophisticated design style that Yamaha Hi-Fi audio is famous for. With an elegant hair line finish, it harmonizes beautifully with other Hi-Fi audio equipment. The operating buttons and volume knobs also show our commitment to simplicity and ease of use.

Speaker Selector and Speaker Terminals for Two Systems

Equipped with speaker terminals for two systems, this receiver lets you connect two sets of speakers. The speaker selector makes it easy to switch between speaker outputs, allowing you to hear the sound from one speaker system (A or B) or from both (A + B).

Power Saving

A power management function automatically cuts off the power (switches to standby mode) when the receiver has not been operated for a long time. It can be set to two, four, eight or 12 hours, or off. In addition, power consumption during standby is only 0.5W, achieving good energy-saving performance.
