Comments about Yamaha 2 Channel Stereo Receiver:
Using my R-S201BL as a bedroom / TV amp through headphones. Working great, and exceeds my expectations.Not a con since it is documented, but be aware that the only balance control is on the remote.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This unit delivers GREAT sound at a really fair price! If you seek a basic unit that performs, this is a terrific choice. I am not so enthusiastic about the remote (the battery compartment will not seat properly, and there is no way to switch from AM, FM or CD to another component using the remote) but that is of minor importance to me and most users. It WILL handle as many as three other components!

I use this receiver to power a five room built-in speaker system. Each room has an impedance balancing volume control. The receiver provides nice sound throughout the house at a comfortable volume level. I have not tried the unit at maximum output for long periods.

Perfect no-frills receiver

Replaced broken Sony receiver . Great product for the price. Perfect with my Denon CD changer & KEF speakers. Plenty of power for large living room. Nothing fancy..just what I needed.
Good Basic Receiver

About Me Audiophile, Tech Savvy
I just wanted a basic system to play the radio and CDs in the bedroom, and this fits the bill. One drawback: the output from the TV in the bedroom is digital optical, and there is no connection for that on this unit. So if I want to run the TV through the speakers I have to buy a converter.

An excellent no-frills stereo receiver
from Southold, NY
About Me Audiophile, Practical
I was searching for a 2 channel amplifier or receiver to replace my aging unit in my living room system. After examining a number of choices, the R-S201 met all my needs at a very good price. After setting it up I was extremely pleased with the design and audio performance that it could give me. My only reservation is the FM/AM performance with the supplied antennas was not very good, because I live in a rural area. If you are not close to an urban location, you would need to use external antennas. Having said that, you cannot beat this unit for the price.
