Comments about Yamaha 100 Watt Natural Sound Stereo Receiver:

Bought to replace old 80s vintage stereo receiver with bad right channel. Needed something to handle all my components (turntable, cassette player, CD & DVD). Main reservation on giving 5 stars is that analog components (turntable & cassette deck) require much higher volume setting than digital components (CD & FM tuner). Also, AM reception (although seldom used) is weak. Otherwise, complete satisfaction!

    Comments about Yamaha 100 Watt Natural Sound Stereo Receiver:

    I find no CONs, but only PROs about this receiver. The sound quality is great and doesn't sound muffled as did my old TECHNICS receiver. The reception in both AM and FM are very clear and easy to tune to the right station without "jiggling" the dial to tune in stations---they are precise.

      Comments about Yamaha 100 Watt Natural Sound Stereo Receiver:

      I purchased from a locally-owned business. The salesperson printed a photo of the back of the receiver and gave me drawing of how to install... which cord goes where, etc. So I really don't know how good Yamaha's directions are since I followed his drawing. I love to hear music all over the house. I work at home so right now in my office I can hear music that originates from the dining room.

        Comments about Yamaha 100 Watt Natural Sound Stereo Receiver:

        Using for audio and home theater. Replaces my not so hot TV speakers. My research showed that a stereo system would be better for playing both music and DVDs. Not disappointed in the sound quality. It is VERY good. Even the bass is all that I need. Sound reproduction is incredible. Especially considering the cost of this amp/receiver. Using with 2 Klipsch bookshelf speakers. Only real issue for me was the I get NO sound at all until the volume is at -45 db or so. Which seems odd to me. But I still seem to have enough volume on the upper end for everything that I put through the system.

          Comments about Yamaha 100 Watt Natural Sound Stereo Receiver:

          I use it outside in our outdoor kitchen. We have speakers built in to the barbeque island and speakers by the pool. I liked having a Speaker A and Speaker B choice or A+B so we can have it playing further away or closer or both sets. It works great for that and I also plug in my iPad or Iphone to the receiver to play Sirius Satellite radio through the wi-fi in our house.

              I really like the loudness control. It prevents some domestic lack of tranquility while enabling me to hear music with depth and clarity. I listen to classical music and find the sound quality outstanding even when volume is turned down. Plenty of separation and clarity of the various instrument and voices.

                Comments about Yamaha 100 Watt Natural Sound Stereo Receiver:

                This brings back the Old Fashioned 'Stereo' systems from the past-Good FM tuner+Phono input+Tape Deck input+Extra inputs+simple front panel controls like the old days( I mean before multi-channel ). This replaced a 7 year old Denon that blew from my second-system, which I don't need anything other than Stereo on. With a Sony dubbing cassette deck, a Gemini manual turntable, a Technics CD player, two JBL bookshelf speakers and a JBL sub-woofer, with this new receiver is a good clean 'blast from the past'. A conservative power rating of 50w per channel, a truly clean and sensitive FM tuner and a very easy set-up . Just after the first day with it I am impressed by the clean sound from all sources. The remote was acceptably functionable, no it doesn't have loudness or tone control buttons on it, but not a big deal. The sub-woofer has a 90hz cut-off point which is OK, sub-woofers have their own cut-off controls anyway. If you don't need a hundred watts/per, or 'pre-out/main-in' jacks, or any 'Switched outlets' on back, this receiver will give you great sound for a small or medium area basic set up. Too bad Yamaha has removed ALL extra 'Switched Outlets' from their new receivers, stereo or multi-channel. I am going to look for an older Yamaha top of the line Stereo receiver, which had those fretures, to replace my main Denon system receiver before that blows, like the Yamaha RX-797. There are still some out there. But this R-S300BL is a very refreshing replacement for the old stereo units of the old days.
