  • Summary: This Yamaha R-S700BL is a pretty good value for the money. It has a nice natural sound and all functions work as described. I have been reasonably satisfied with it. It would be a 5 star if not for the plastic controls and knobs. They are very cheap looking and were not expected.

Old School Sound!

Aquaman, Amazon
12 March 2015
  • Summary: After my 32 year old Fisher Studio Standard bit the dust I was looking for a quality two channel tuner - amplifier. It came down to this and another. I really like it. My 32 year old Technics turntable and my Kindle both like it. I have had it for a year and works great. Simple to use.
