Home cinema in perfection: Audiophile surround-ensemble of pre-amplifier and power amplifier

Unique technology by YAMAHA such as the proprietary CINEMA DSP HD³ and automatic system calibration YPAO R.S.C. offers an impressive sound experience for Ultra-HD home cinema blockbusters, gaming and music. Our credo: No compromise. By separating pre-amplifier and power amplifier, a un-dreamt of level of musical enjoyment with an impressive wealth of detail is made possible.

Developed for living rooms without much space for AV components, the two compact receivers offer an excellent home cinema surround experience and audiophile stereo enjoyment. The elegant design of the RX-S models perfectly complements YAMAHA Blu-ray players and other modern home cinema components. Both of the AV receivers feature extensive home network integration: Thanks to DLNA, media can easily be played from computer or NAS hard drive. With Napster, one of the most popular music streaming services is integrated. Media from iPhone, iPad and iTunes (PC/Mac) can be relayed into the living room via AirPlay. In addition, the RX-S600D features a DAB+ tuner for digital radio. The free YAMAHA AV controller app for Apple iOS and Android smartphones or tablet-PCs guarantees easy control.

Hi-fi in perfection: Ensemble of integrated amplifier and SA-CD-player/USB-DAC

The ultimate musical enjoyment, born out of passion. YAMAHA’s S3000 series combines audiophile technology and the finest craftsmanship in a unique way. With the integrated amplifier A-S3000 and the SA-CD-player CD-S3000 which also contains a USB DAC made by Steinberg, the reputable company marks another decisive step for high-end hi-fi in the year of its 125th anniversary. Years of research and development have been dedicated to this new generation of stereo equipment for the perfect musical enjoyment: An experience for all senses.
