A superb Upgrade
from Bonney Lake, WA
About Me Tech Savvy
I used this to replace a 20 year old Yamaha that was failing badly. Until I set this one up I did not realize how badly the older unit was failing. The sound is crisp and clean. I haven't even begun to push the volume as even at low volume settings the room is filled with sound. I am currently running four sets of speakers using an external switch to choose those speakers I want to use. Even when all four are being used there is no diminution of power.I am very pleased with the sound, with the ease of set up, and power output.

Just What was Expected
from Rocky Mount, North Carolina USA
Very easy to unpack, set up and install even in home made wood cabinets. This was installed into a black walnut dry sink with speakers on both sides of cabinet, and the Yamaha CD s300 cd player was added to it. Gives a great sound to an 18th century English dining room. No one knows where the music flows from behind the closed doors! Perfect size, and the control design are easy to use for people with neuropathy. Power output is excellent, and being able to save as many station settings is a positive plus! I bought this after studying other models and made the right choice.

well designed and built
from Kettering Ohio
About Me Audiophile, Tech Savvy
From the "record out selector" to the many analog inputs (including phono) this receiver is the perfect match of design and build quality. Yes, the digital display only turns off with the "pure direct" switch turned on...not a big deal. Yamaha has remained a great source of quality audio gear and the RS 500 reflects that.
clean sound-good value

About Me Audiophile, Practical, Technically Challenged
This is a great choice in a small field of 2 channel receivers. Sound is very clean, no background noise whatsoever. An excellent value. Seems to be well made.
from Spokane, WA
This is to replace my beloved Sansui 800 circa 1969. I thought I would lose some of the analog "warmth" to which I was accustomed, but no. Excellent sound with a mix of old Marantz and new Polk speakers.

I love it! Call me old school but this is how music should sound! I have floor speakers (Pioneer 12" woofer 4 way) This amp makes those speakers sound better than ever. I was planning on new speakers after another pay check but no need!

I purchased the R-S500 to replace my 30 year old Yamaha receiver that finally died. It was easy to set up and I found the iPod connection easy to make and easy to control.
