Yamaha R-N803D

Australian HIFI - - EISA AWARDS – 2018-2019 -

Judges’ Ci­ta­tion: Prod­ucts such as this show just how far af­ford­able hi-fi sep­a­rates have im­proved of late. Yamaha’s R-N803D is a so­phis­ti­cated stereo re­ceiver, with care­ful at­ten­tion paid to the short­ness of sig­nal paths to keep the purists happy. Yet it’s packed with fea­tures, in­clud­ing an ESS Sabre DAC for great sound and YPAO—Yamaha’s Para­met­ric room Acous­tic Op­ti­miser—to as­sist in tai­lor­ing speak­ers to your lis­ten­ing room. With sub­stan­tial power un­der the hood the R-N803D can drive most loud­speak­ers with ease, and has a de­tailed and pre­cise sound that be­lies its price tag. Fac­tor in Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity, and Yamaha’s Mu­sicCast stream­ing plat­form for Ti­dal, Spo­tify, Deezer and Qobuz, and it’s a ver­i­ta­ble Swiss Army knife of am­pli­fiers.
