Yamaha RN 500 Stereo Receiver

RandyW, Crutchfield
30 November 2014
  • Summary: just purchased for a home stereo (music only). Mated to Polk Audio RTi A5. Also purchased the optional Yamaha wireless adapter (YWA-10) - highly recommend. I was originally looking for a high quality mini system that could play music from my iPad.
  • Pros: Great Sound Optional wifi adapter and Air Play along with your iPhone or IPad work great together Has enough power to produce enough bass with just tower speakers (sans subwoofer)
  • Cons: None at this time

Wonderful full sound

Gary Bren, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Wonderful full sound. I hooked it up to a pair of Polk Audio tower speakers and it fills the whole house, just what I was looking for. I added the Yamaha YBA-11 Bluetooth Wireless adapter and now we can play music for many sources.

Good sound, bad overall quality.

tdebug, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: This amp has good quality build (at lest externally) and sound quality also good. But unfortunately I had to send my R-N500 back after only 5 days of use, as it had pretty annoying issue - if switched on after being off for several hours (overnight, etc.), it had no sound from any channel.

  • Summary: I love the sound from this receiver! Unfortunately, the first two receivers had problems and had to be returned. The third one was a good one and I am very happy with it. Amazon support was exemplary thru out the whole process of finally getting a functioning receiver.

The new era of audio technology

Bill "Richard S. Jones", Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: Initially I was shopping for a cassette deck and a receiver to replace some old gear, but after doing research, it seemed more cost effective to purchase the r-n500 because I could use Spotify to listen to alot of the same music I had on vinyl and recorded on cassette tapes.

PRGR, Amazon
5 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the Yamaha R-N500 to take advantage of the latest streaming options, the ability to control my music system from anywhere in the house, and to have digital inputs available. These, plus good sound and build quality were requirements. The R-N500 meets all of these!
