SmartHouse - - FIRST LOOK // Yamaha - Writ­ten by JON BRAGG

Yamaha have launched a new net­work Hi-Fi stereo re­ceiver with a fo­cus on ver­sa­til­ity and per­for­mance. Over 60 years af­ter Yamaha launched the first au­dio com­po­nent us­ing the ‘Hi-Fi’ name, the com­pany said its new Yamaha R-N303 re­ceiver lever­aged “six decades of en­gi­neer­ing lead­er­ship in Hi-Fi”.

“The R-N303 de­liv­ers ex­cep­tion­ally high per­for­mance, ver­sa­til­ity and value, re­flect­ing the Yamaha com­mit­ment to music and to Hi-Fi en­thu­si­asts,” said Robert Goed­ken, Gen­eral Man­ager, AV Divi­sion, Yamaha Cor­po­ra­tion of Amer­ica

Music play­back is sup­ported from net­worked com­put­ers, music stream­ing ser­vices, mo­bile de­vices, turnta­bles and CD play­ers, with con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions in­clud­ing WiFi, Blue­tooth, Ap­ple Air­play, DLNA, eth­er­net and Yamaha’s Mu­sicCast tech­nol­ogy for multi-room con­nec­tiv­ity with other Yamaha prod­ucts.

High-Res au­dio for­mats in­clud­ing 192kHz/24-bit FLAC, WAV and AIFF as well as 2.8/5.6MHz DSD are sup­ported thanks to the Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit dig­i­tal-to-ana­log con­verter which can han­dle high-res­o­lu­tion music files with a high sig­nal-to-noise ra­tio, which Yamaha said re­veals “sub­tle nu­ances in music and de­liv­er­ing a sense of spa­cious­ness”.

Play­back from a turntable is sup­ported us­ing the ded­i­cated phono in­put, while the op­ti­cal in­put and coax­ial in­put also en­able sup­port from CD play­ers, Blu­ray play­ers and TVs.

The R-N303 can also di­rectly con­nect to music stream­ing ser­vices in­clud­ing Spo­tify, Deezer and Tidal, and also fea­tures an FM/AM tuner and a max­i­mum out­put of 140 watts per chan­nel.

Pric­ing and avail­abil­ity for the Yamaha R-N303 in Aus­tralia has not yet been an­nounced.
