Very nice for the price
 
I bought this unit for a small bedroom system where I didn't need or want mega power. And I needed an amp that was compatible with 4 ohm speakers less than 65 Watts. The sound is crisp and clean. The tuner is remarkable. Loads of features. Really like the sleep feature and the power saver feature. A little complicated to set up at first. Loads of menus. But very versatile for such an inexpensive unit. Its kinda big though. Lot of empty space in there. Seems like a waste. One thing I don't like s...

Great big sound for tiny little bucks
 
Is this the worlds greatest audiophile receiver? No. Is this a great receiver for the money? Oh yeah! While it does not have outlets in the rear of the unit to plug in your ancillary gear, and it isn't the most powerful unit in its price range, it has great FM sensitivity (with a cheap powered indoor antenna from Radio Shack), solid sound, and when you hit the "Pure Direct" button, the sound becomes full and rich, and very, very satisfying for the money. I wanted the very expensive NAD, and...

I love this receiver!
 
I absolutely love this receiver. I was dissatisfied with the performance of my Pioneer SX-2600 receiver when listening to music at low volumes. 99% of my listening is CDs and about 1% is turntable or radio. The ability to play cleanly at low volume was an essential need and the Yamaha R-S300 exceeds my expectations. From the moment I connected it the sound was so clean I picked out subtleties in the music that I never heard before. And when I need to crank it up it sounds just as nice. Eas...

Nice, too complex
 
good stuff: Sounds nice. I update from a 20+ year old amp, and this is a noticeable improvement. Very happy with sound. "Relatively" simple to use - select function by turning a knob. Nice big volume control. Annoyances: 1) using the "Pure Direct" function causes the screen to blank, and this behavior cannot be overridden. This is a huge issue for me, and I almost sent it back. What are they thinking?????? Screen blanking should be a user fu...

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...

Great value
 
Simple, yet effective receiver for non-AV sources. For those of us who still have vinyl, CD and cassettes, this receiver is an economical yet musical solution.

For The Value Investor
 
On the front end,I'm not nor to I desire to be an audiophile. I have three old receivers: Onkyo, Denon and JVC but I wanted to update a basic stereo set up for the home. I cut the list down to an Onkyo and the Yamaha RS-300. I was swayed by the customer reviews to try the Yamaha. Buying an "open box" and using "reward points" I got a great bargain from the great Crutchfield. Within ten minutes I had it up and running (not interested in the remote ) and hooked to my Infinity's and NAD cd player. ...

Yamaha R-S300
 
Great receiver for rock music as the midrange and lows are very storng. Lacking in the highs though. Amazing receiver for the price.

Questionable quality
 
I bought this receiver locally. Initially I was interested in a NAD receiver, but the salesman steered me toward the Yamaha saying I'd get the same performance for less money. I voiced my skepticism based on the fact the the first Yamaha receiver I owned had a problem during warranty that required two repairs. "Not to worry," he said. "Yamaha equipment is quite reliable." Here we are, 18 months later and the input selection knob on my receiver is malfunctioning. It will sometimes skip an input, ...
