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

R. Long "JaminRebel", Amazon

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: must buy for all audiophiles wanting clean sound and excellent 2 channel performance. worth noting is the cd direct amp. offered on the r-s700 but not on the equivalent integrated amplifier.it only offers pure direct. the cd amp. gives a significant improvement to your cd players signal!!!!spend the extra money to buy the receiver even if you do not use the tuner. you will not regret purchase and you have the tuner if you need it. tuner is excellent!!!
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: None

Excellent Receiver for music lovers

Nick Little, Amazon

  • 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.

need hdmi in stereos

Mrbeachdude, Adorama

  • Excerpt: You need to put out new stereos with HDMI inputs and outputs for us who don't really care for the Home Theatre sound other than that don't change a thing. I have the rx-797 and it's great. I also like that I can hook up my equalizer to it and my turntable and I have a subwoofer hooked up to it which I like. I think you are the only ones who put a subwoofer hook up on your stereos which is great.

Yamaha R-S700BL

Connie M. Pierce, Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: If you're looking for a true hi-fi receiver, this is it. Ample power to 100w per channel. Features include: tape, cd, and 3 aux. inputs, phono input with a built-in pre-amplifier, Pre-out/Main-in (so that a signal processor/equalizer can be used), and a variable loudness control. Sirius ready. A great machine that is well worth the money.
