★★★★ - Yamaha R-N803D Review
"The R-N803D covers all connectivity bases, from ancient to modern. Low frequencies are decently weighty, tonally expressive and don’t overhang too much, while at the opposite end of the range, treble sounds shine benignly without suggesting they might get troublesome. The R-N803D is a generously specified, detailed network receiver with an engagingly smooth and warm sound."
Yamaha boasts over 60 years of history as an audio brand. And the technology of R-N803D comes directly from Yamaha’s legendary Hi-Fi design concept ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology), which faithfully maintains the integrity of the audio by combining a meticulously symmetrical left / right circuit layout and signal directness (straightest, shortest signal paths) with a low-vibration chassis of high rigidity, equipped with the special resin frame “Art Base” that absorbs and blocks unnecessary vibration. It maintains sonic purity and accurate stereo image of the music to create unshakeable drivability.
The R-N803D uses the renowned SABRE 9006AS 192 kHz / 24-bit DAC (from ESS technology) to deliver superior S/N performance. Combined with Yamaha’s original network module, the unit thoroughly draws out all the sonic merits of high-resolution sound sources, effectively reproducing even the subtle ambience of concert halls and delicate expressive nuances in the sound.
For the first time in a Hi-Fi receiver, the R-N803D is equipped with the Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimiser (YPAO), a famed technology used in Yamaha's AV receivers. It measures the shape of the room, the material of the wall and the position of the speaker, and then automatically adjusts the sound to create the ideal response and sonic quality. The unit also features other advanced YPAO functions, including YPAO™-R.S.C (Reflected Sound Control), which actively corrects the important early reflection sounds that greatly influence sound quality, and YPAO Volume, which applies exceptionally high-precision EQ (equalisation), with 192 kHz / 64-bit operation. The result? You can create an ideal listening environment right in your home, just like that of a professional audio listening room.
Pure Direct mode enables the music signals to travel the shortest possible circuit route, bypassing the buffer amp and the tone, loudness and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation, for the purest sound quality.
This model inherits the simple and sophisticated design style for which Yamaha Hi-Fi audio is famous. With the elegant aluminium hairline finish of the front panel, it harmonises beautifully with your other Hi-Fi audio components. The stylish design with high-quality materials deepens both the joy of ownership and the joy of listening.
The power amp block adopts a symmetrical and direct circuit layout based on the ToP-ART concept, featuring a parallel push-pull structure using a total of eight bipolar type power transistors (four each, on left and right) as its output terminals. And by minimising the lengths of the audio signal paths in the circuit design, we’ve lowered impedance to achieve superb drive power with a maximum output of 145 watts (per channel).
MusicCast employs a high-performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. It can also share the music from external devices such as a CD player or TV connected to the R-N803D. Audio content from Bluetooth-connected smartphones or tablets can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.
Control. It’s all in the palm of your hands — with the free MusicCast CONTROLLER app. Simply tap and flick on the intuitively designed screen, and easily operate all of your MusicCast devices, as well as the R-N803D.
Explore a world of music via built-in popular streaming services, including Deezer, TIDAL and Spotify Connect. Whether listening to old favourites or discovering new artists, there has never been a better way to access music simply and intuitively on the best audio system in the household.
As well as featuring MusicCast functionality over your Wi-Fi network, the R-N803D is equipped with Bluetooth® to let you enjoy easy wireless music playback from smartphones and other devices.
The R-N803D is equipped for digital audio input with both audio and coaxial terminals. The optical is for receiving audio from a TV and the coaxial is for receiving audio from a Blu-ray Disc™ player.
