Don't hesitate...this is one nice 2 channel receiver

  • Summary: This is a great receiver for the money. The sound is absolutely outstanding for a 2 channel receiver in this price range. I suspect I could spend in the $1500 range and not notice the sound difference. This RS700 is powering two Klipsch Legend 20 Tower speakers in a fairly large room, 35 x 28. Every aspect of the sound is good. Replaced a 5 channel Denon avr 3300. Wanted to get back to 2 channel stereo. Also use it with Blue Ray video player for movie sound.

Just buy it you won't be the least bit dissaponed, I know I've bought enough equipment over the years!

  • Summary: I bought this unit after another Yamaha System died that was over 26 years old!! I have had many, many stereo systems over the years, yes I'm old but that should please the review reader, I come from experience. I bought another Yamaha product because they build it right. Let's face it today there is a rift between the very upper end stuff for many, many thousands of dollars and then there is the very affordable get it done well product like this!

R-S700BL Receiver> What a waste of good money.

R. Long "JaminRebel", Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: Maybe I am missing something but this unit seems to have no power to produce quality sound. I've played with my speaker buttons and the treble and bass dials plus the Pure Direct and CD Direct Amp buttons but all I get is under-powered music. I have to listen to the stereo at an uncomfortably high level just to get any real "surround" sound, so to speak, out of the unit. At a lower volume level I get weak blunt sound quality.

Excellent Receiver for music lovers

Nick Little, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: Replaced 30 year old Carver with this unit and am totally satisfied with product. The variable loudness control and .015 THD make this an assume receiver. Will support AV but was not looking for an AV unit. Would have been nice to have Airplay but the sound from this receiver is so much better than all the AV units I tried - and after all, sound is what a receiver is all about. Purchased several other AV receivers but returned them all because of the sound quality.
