About The Yamaha R-N303D Network Stereo Receiver
The Yamaha R-N303D is a new breed of stereo Receiver. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DAB+ Radio and Internet Radio add to an already impressive feature list. Now you can listen to the world of radio as well as stream music from your smartphone or tablet.
Not everyone wants a Home Theatre Receiver but there has been a cry from radio fans to give them the latest networking functions in a product without the extra perceived complications. That feedback prompted Yamaha to design the R-N303D with the latest network capability. Enjoy 1000's of radio stations from around the world via the Internet. Where many stereo Receivers stop short of streaming music options, the R-N303D embraces them all with full support for Apple AirPlay and DLNA-compatible devices. Connect this Receiver to your home network router and turn your compatible computer, smartphone or tablet into bona fide wireless sources. Enjoy sweet music alongside your CD or Blu-ray player, record player, and other components thanks to the R-N303D's high-power, low-noise construction.
Digital Audio Input for TV or Blu-ray Player: The R-N303D has a digital audio input - with both optical and coaxial terminals. The optical is for receiving audio from a TV and the coaxial for receiving audio from a Blu-ray player. The audio stays in the digital domain, giving you pure, pristine dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources, from sports and other programmes to movies and concerts.
Audio Quality Not Sacrificed
With all this advanced technology, you may assume that the 303' doesn't come up to scratch when it comes to performance. Not so! Yamaha employs their tried and tested ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) design concept, which combines the latest and best technologies, components and circuit designs to maximise sound quality. It is what we in the audio industry call High Current Amplification and this amp design uses superior quality components from input to output to achieve high current power with low impedance drive capability. In other words, the R-N303D will handle with ease a wide range of speaker systems even those rated at a 4 Ohm impedance. With 100 Watts of full-bandwidth power per channel at 8 Ohms the R-N303D delivers solid, reliable audio performance even when driving both A & B speakers - another popular inclusion from the past - at the same time. Consumers will also be happy that the receiver has individual bass and treble controls.
MusicCast Expands Entertainment Possibilities
MusicCast is a new revolution in network audio, use all your MusicCast products together or separately, it's completely up to you. And the Yamaha R-N303D stereo receiver supports Yamaha's proprietary MusicCast multi-room audio eco-system. It allows you to wirelessly play back a wide variety of audio sources and content in multiple rooms of your home (additional MusicCast products sold separately). MusicCast works with your home's existing WiFi router and Yamaha's free MusicCast App for Apple (iOS 9.0+) iPod/iPhone/iPad and Android (OS 4.1+) smartphones/tablets puts control of your whole home listening experience in the palm of your hand. You'll be able to stream the receiver's tuner, analogue inputs, digital inputs, Bluetooth, and network sources to other MusicCast products installed in your home. In addition, you'll be able to stream your MusicCast products' sources to the stereo receiver.
Stream Your iTunes Library Via Apple AirPlay: AirPlay lets you stream your favourite songs directly from your Apple iOS device or from your iTunes library on your Windows PC or Mac computer to the R-N303 network stereo receiver via your wireless network. If you use any Apple portable devices or iTunes on your computer, then you'll love the R-N303D's built-in support for Apple AirPlay. From your Apple iOS device you are able to stream stored music on your device, downloaded music apps, and music on your iCloud to the AV receiver. It lets you stream music directly from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, no wires required. If you're not an Apple user, this receiver's DLNA-compatibility opens up wireless streaming to compatible PCs, music servers, and Android devices. You can even download Apple's free Remote App onto your compatible iOS device to browse and control playback functions of the music stored in your iTunes music library on your computer when it is being streamed to the network receiver. With AirPlay you also get to see song/artist information on the receiver's front-panel display.
Internet Radio: The Yamaha R-N303D's network connection provides access to Spotify Connect, and vTuner Internet Radio. You can control the Internet Radio services from the network receiver's remote control and front-panel display. The receiver's front-panel display will indicate station name, album name, song title, and elapsed time.
vTuner: You can also listen to Internet radio stations using the vTuner Internet Radio Station database service particularly customised for this unit, providing a database of numerous radio stations around the world. You can search for Internet Radio stations by Location, Genre, New, Popular, or Podcast.
Stream Millions of Songs with Spotify Connect: With the Spotify app on your Apple iOS or Android smartphone, you've got instant access to millions of songs. And now you can stream those same songs from your smartphone to the Yamaha network receiver by using Spotify Connect; simply hit play on the app to start streaming music. What's more, when you've been listening to Spotify on your smartphone outside and come inside, the song immediately begins to stream to the receiver for uninterrupted music enjoyment. You can also personalise playlists and receive phone calls while listening to music. The Spotify app for Apple iOS/Android devices and a premium account are required.
DAB+/FM Tuner: The Yamaha R-N303D network receiver features a built-in DAB+/FM tuner with manual, seek and preset tuning. The R-N303D lets you store up to 40 station presets. This can be done manually or automatically (auto-preset tuning). You can set this receiver to automatically match FM broadcast frequencies in stereo, or convert the frequency to monaural for weaker stations.
Note: However, we must stress that you MUST have exceptional reception and usually be connected to a compatible external antenna to have even a chance of receiving decent sound via the Radio Tuner. With the proliferation of more and more radio stations, this problem has grown in recent years. You can of course, as mentioned above, listen to 1000's of radio stations via the Internet. Warranty is not applicable if the problem is deemed as a reception issue. Click here to read more.
Free Yamaha Control app for Apple & Android Devices: A network connection also offers you the opportunity for smartphone control using Yamaha's free Network Player Controller app. Download it to your Apple or Android device to use it as Wi-Fi remote. It lets you select streaming music options and even view album artwork with select sources. Yamaha plans future firmware upgrades to add more Internet music choices to the R-N303D.
Analogue + Digital Inputs: The Yamaha R-N303D offers both analogue and digital audio inputs in order to connect a variety of source components.
Analogue Audio Inputs: The receiver features four pair analogue stereo RCA inputs to connect up to four analogue audio components like a CD player or tape device. It does not have a phono input but that is easy fixed with either a phono preamplifier (sold separately) or a turntable with built-in phono pre-amplifier. There is also a stereo RCA record output to connect to a CD-recorder or other recording device.
Digital Audio Inputs: The R-N303D is equipped with a digital audio input, with both optical and coaxial terminals. The optical digital input is designed for receiving audio from a TV or pay TV box, while the coaxial digital input is used for receiving audio from a Blu-ray Disc player and CD player. The audio stays in the digital domain, giving you pure, pristine dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources, from sports and other programs to movies and concerts.
A & B Speaker Terminals: The R-N303D is fitted with A & B speaker terminals so you can power up to two pair of speakers (the A & B speaker terminals are wired in parallel inside the receiver). The speaker selector switch on the front-panel of the receiver makes it easy to switch between speaker outputs, allowing you to hear the sound from one speaker pair (A or B) or from both speaker pairs (A+B). The eight binding-post speaker terminals will accept bare wire (like QED 79 strand) and banana plugs which we truly recommend.
Headphone Jack: The Yamaha R-N303D is equipped with a front-panel, full-size headphone jack for connecting a set of headphone, so you can listen to your music privately. Connecting a set of headphones automatically mutes the receiver's speaker outputs.
Ethernet LAN Port: The Yamaha network receiver is fitted with a RJ-45 Ethernet (LAN) port to connect the receiver to your home network to access your DLNA music server, or Internet Radio.
