Summary: The Yamaha RP-U100 provides me with a difficult
dilemma. While it never made me hate listening to music, and certainly never drove me out
of the room with harsh or fatiguing assaults to my ears, it didn’t really come up to
snuff by audiophile standards. However, I could probably say this for most low-priced
mass-market receivers. On the computer, however, which is its intended use, the RP-U100
was a different story.
