Description

The R-N803 uses the renowned SABRE 9006AS 192 kHz / 24-bit DAC (from ESS technology) to deliver superior S/N performance. Combined with Yamaha’s original network module, the unit thoroughly draws out all the sonic merits of high-resolution sound sources, effectively reproducing even the subtle ambience of concert halls and delicate expressive nuances in the sound.

 

Pure Direct mode enables the music signals to travel the shortest possible circuit route, bypassing the buffer amp and the tone, loudness and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation, for the purest sound quality.

 

Sophisticated circuit design

The power amp block adopts a symmetrical and direct circuit layout based on the ToP-ART concept, featuring a parallel push-pull structure using a total of eight bipolar type power transistors (four each, on left and right) as its output terminals. And by minimising the lengths of the audio signal paths in the circuit design, we’ve lowered impedance to achieve superb drive power with a maximum output of 145 watts (per channel).

 

Go wireless

The R-N803 is equipped with Bluetooth® functionality to let you enjoy easy wireless music playback from smartphones and other devices.

 

Your music everywhere

MusicCast employs a high performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. It can also share the music from external devices such as a CD player or TV connected to the R-N803. Audio content from Bluetooth-connected smartphones or tablets can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.

 

The R-N803 is equipped for digital audio input with both audio and coaxial terminals. The optical is for receiving audio from a TV and the coaxial is for receiving audio from a Blu-ray Disc™ player. The audio stays in the digital domain, giving you pure, pristine, dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources, from sports and other programmes to movies and concerts.

 

The comprehensive connectors of the R-N803 include special phono input terminals, letting you easily connect a turntable and enjoy music from your vinyl record collection.
