Bluetooth Wireless Discontinued - False Advertising

Stephen Michael, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Product description and manual indicates Bluetooth wireless capability using YBA-10 Audio Receiver. However, Yba-10 has been discontinued by Yamaha. So, forget using supposedly supported A2DP wireless audio streaming and AVRCP remote from your Bluetooth devices as promised in product description and product manual. Yamaha apparently does not produce an effective replacement for YBA-10.

Garbage

Yamaha R-S700, Crutchfield
9 June 2013
  • Summary: Although the Crutchfield organization is nice, this receiver is a piece of garbage. I tried over and over again, even using 3 separate XM receivers and the thing would not emit a sound. No human being should have to go through that kind of aggravation.

Not good with Bose 901 for sure.

Chan, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: I am using Bose 901 VI and research lot as my Powerful Vintage Yamaha CA-810 stop working. It was difficult to find Best stereo receiver/ Integrated Amp for less than $1000 for my Bose. I tried Yamaha R-S700 as it has very attractive specs but it sounded thin, annoying, narrow sound stage and low power. So I bought HK3490 and it is INDEED very High Quality receiver. HK3490 sounded clean, Very loud like Live Concert, 3D and long time enjoyable musical sound!

Unpleasant sound quality

  • Summary: I am using Bose 901 VI and research lot as my Powerful Vintage Yamaha CA-810 stop working. It was difficult to find Best stereo receiver/ Integrated Amp for less than $1000 for my Bose. I tried Yamaha R-S700 as it has very attractive specs but it sounded thin, annoying, narrow sound stage and low power. Sorry Yamaha! Hope you understand what clean and pleasant sound provided in CA-810 model.
  • Pros: Aluminium face plate. Good remote.
  • Cons: Unpleasant, annoying sound. surely not a natural sounding receiver, Bass, vocal and highs is thin sounding.
