The talented Yamaha Elite-class 2-channel stereo brings beautiful sound into your home. Advanced technology, from the aluminum heat sinks to the gold-plated speaker terminals, ensures high performance and pure, unadulterated audio.
What's included in the box
Put a little 2-channel love in your life
If you're looking to add stereo sound in your life, look no further than Yamaha's R-S700. Part of their Elite class of receivers, the R-S700 is built to perform. Yamaha starts with ToP-ART and ART Base chassis construction and dual aluminum heat sinks ensure a stable audio platform for reduced distortion and crisp, clean sound. Then they add high-quality audio components that are meticulously selected. And they put it all behind a sophisticated aluminum front panel and top it off with "silky touch" volume and selector knobs.
Performs like a champ
Pure stereo is preferred by many because, well, it's pure. How, you may ask, does it get so pure. Well, it doesn't get pure, it remains pure. Think of the audio signal as the damsel and the components as the knights in shining audio armor keeping her distress-free. Although you can't control the movement of every particle of energy, you can do a lot to control how it behaves, and henceforth, how you can prevent distortion. For example, Pure Direct moves the audio signal through the receiver along the shortest possible path — because the longer the path, the more likely the signal will encounter distortion. Or consider the high-grade speaker terminals that are gold-plated for the a durable, low-distortion connection or the balanced iPod dock interface that reduces noise (distortion) in the system. If you've found a stereo manufacturer — like Yamaha — that addresses these issues, you know they're committed to providing the best sound possible.
It's the little things
Just because you're an audio purist doesn't mean you want to throw new technologies out the window. I mean, you can't spend all of your life under that rock. Enjoy the dedicated iPod dock and iPod video out and the SIRIUS port that's just waiting for your subscription. Take advantage of the Zone 2 capabilities (including a dedicated Zone 2 remote control!) and pump more pure audio into your home. And, really, who isn't going to love the Continuously Variable Loudness Control that lets you turn down the volume, keeping loud sounds distinct (as opposed to ear-drum bursting) without losing the quality of low frequencies (i.e. whispering). The R-S700 adds CD Direct Amplification that maximizes CD source S/N ratio.
