Featuring built-in Bluetooth plus a DAB radio, the Yamaha RS202D stereo receiver can handle all your music needs.
The Yamaha 'Natural Sound' concept Based on Yamaha's concept of "Natural Sound", the RS202D has been designed from the outset to sound evenly balanced and realistic. This comes about through painstaking attention to detail, including seemingly small points such as connecting the signal and power grounds at one point to eliminate mutual interference. This helps achieve a higher signal to noise ratio, so you hear more of the music and less distortion.
Powerful sound With 100W per channel the RS202D is powerful enough to drive a wide range of speakers in even the largest rooms. Details such as placing the power transformer close to the power amp circuit, for low signal loss, helps the R-S202D produce a powerful and dynamic sound.
Bluetooth built-in Featuring a built-in Bluetooth receiver, the RS202D is the ideal way of streaming music from your smartphone or tablet to your Hi-Fi separates system. Stream the music stored on your device or take advantage of streaming music services such as Spotify or Apple Music, all from the comfort of your smart device.
DAB and FM With both DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) and FM tuners onboard, this Yamaha is ideally equipped for listening to a wide range of stations. Select DAB for a vast range of digital radio stations, including the popular BBC 6 Music, 4 Extra and 5 live. DAB also lets you hear crisp, digital clarity of sound, free from interference. For local stations or a more expansive sound with national stations (roof mounted aerial recommended) FM is also on hand.
Flexible features Powerful sound is one thing, but where the Yamaha really scores is in combining this with an equally impressive range of features. As well Bluetooth and the DAB/FM tuners, the Yamaha also has four other RCA inputs plus an audio output. Two independently switchable speaker outlets are also present for running another set of speakers in a second room. The elegant remote control is easy to use yet also operates a complete Yamaha system.
The ideal start to a Hi-Fi separates system, the Yamaha RS202D offers quality, features and value in one great package.

A mixed bag.It would be nice if Bluetooth transmit to remote speakers was included.
Controls are tiny and hard to read in a bad light.
Volume is not overwhelming considering 100W claimed. I've tried it through 80W speakers.
Versatility is good, DAB CD Bluetooth and FM is a good range of inputs, and the quality is fine.
Receptacles for speaker wires are far too small, requiring reduction of my speaker leads.
Good value at the price.

Very versatile piece of kitI bought this receiver because it was the only one Richer Sounds had that would do everything I wanted, i.e.
receive the signal and amplify from the sony turntable I was purchasing from them;
act as an amplifier for my CD player;
be a digital radio;
link to my computer and my daughter's i-phone to play music off i-tunes and youtube, through my speakers

worth every pennyThe receiver is dead easy to set up and to pair using bluetooth with various items. Dab works fine using the wire antenna supplied. Finally the sound - i have always had an interest in Hi-Fi for over forty years and put through my Mordaunt Short speakers i am very happy with the quality. Can i recommend this receiver - DEFINITELY.

Basic, but does everything you need with amazing sound!Was slightly apprehensive about going for this, as the price seemed too good to be true. But I took the plunge as I really wanted access to DAB digital radio but didn't want a separate unit on top of an amplifier. So glad I took the risk in the end. The sound is really crisp and sharp, great bass, good volume levels (I never need to go higher than 50 out of 100) and the added bonus of Bluetooth makes it future-proof. If you simply need a stereo amplifier, go for this as it has the added benefit of DAB radio and Bluetooth - you can't go wrong!
