Awesome Throwback Receiver
 
I've owned Luxman, NAD, Sony ES, Denon and Pioneer. All older stuff, all had their bright spots but were long in the tooth, each possessing at least one annoying defect.

Good Stereo Receiver
 
It's a great receiver! Don't let the power rating fool you! It really caught the Yamaha charm. A lot of things on the front of this receiver are not standard features anymore. There are no video components run through it, so that stuff won't degrade the audio signal chain - great for using with a desktop PC and some bookshelf or floorstanding speakers.

A poor performer that is barely worth its low price
 
Preface: There is some confusion about my review because Amazon has combined reviews with different product listings. To be clear, I am reviewing the R-S201.I’m sorry to counter all the rave reviews, but seriously, someone needs to mention a few things about the R-S201. It’s an adequate stereo receiver. It’s not great and it’s barely good. The price is low, but (unfortunately) the performance really matches the price. The total harmonic distortion alone is unacceptably high - ridiculously high f...

Not a 2-channel receiver!
 
I purchased the Yamaha along with their 5-disk CD player in hopes of replacing an older unit and being able to control everything from a single remote. Even though the unit is advertised as a 2-channel receiver, it's actually a 2.1 receiver with a subwoofer output. I'm not sure why Yamaha insisted on degrading this product by adding A/V features, but when playing the unit it became immediately obvious that the low bass was missing. I suppose they cut off the low bass and send it out the subwoofe...

Good, but awkward controls
 
Don't want to argue with all the enthusiastic reviews here, but...This unit's ergonomics are a problem for me. The layout of my listening area is such that I use the front panel controls rather than the remote, and I don't like them. The buttons are so small you have to hunt for them, even up close, and the labels are barely readable. The buttons are square-edged and stiff, so it's physically uncomfortable to press them repeatedly. They are also laid out evenly across the panel rather than group...

Just what I needed!
 
I had an Aiwa and a Sony music only receiver (no surround sound) and was disatisfied with the quality being that I'm somewhat of an Audiophile and have been for over twenty years. I wished for a Harmon Kardon receiver for my bedroom but had been using a wireless speaker set only. I was so excited to get this because the Yamaha brand of audio equipment has always impressed me, and I'm just as happy with this as I would have been with an HK receiver. I have an excellent ear for music, and local ba...

Fine Liitle Unit
 
I just hope that compnaies like Yamaha continue to make plain old stereo units for a long time. I know people want to go with the whole Dolby surrround HD "sounds like your really there" type of unit these days but I tell you...If I didn't already have on old budget surround sound receiver in the living room, I'd just get something like the R-S300 and use the four speakers and that's it. I wouldn't even worry about having to have a center channel and all that junk. I like simplicity an...

Good quality receiver at a good price
 
I had to replace my 25 year old Yamaha receiver and I only looked for a Yamaha replacement. I'm glad I did. Still well made and excellent sound.

Love it!
 
This is my first new receiver in over 25 years. The set up was easy, the reception is great, even though we are in a bad reception pocket. I like to control the bass and treble, so this gives me that freedom. I like that I can preset my stations so I don't have to hunt for them.
