Great Amplifier


I bought this amplifier to get 100W per side into my music production monitors. It certainly delivers the power, with high quality sound, perfectly. Bluetooth was a plus, and the DAB radio, both of which I use when doing other work. For what it...

Old school receiver brought up to date.


Bought to replace an ageing Teac in my workshop. The sound is sweet and natural through Tannoy Mercury V1 and as open as digital radio ever can be. The cosmetic finish is exemplary as would be expected from Yamaha.

Great sound, few gripes for the money!


Really nice noise, two speaker outputs is a plus. Remote is fiddly and display on the unit offers no program details, just channel name. But generally I love it and great price at 149!

Lives up to the given description


Very pleased with the unit, which lives up to the advertising profile, and I found the setting up procedure quite easy, and within my waning abilities (I am aged 82!). However, the reason for my purchase was to replace the amplifier and tuner units of...

Brilliant features, simple to use & amazing sound quality foir the price


Summed up above, although have now purchased 4 of them, one for each bedroom so you can connect your phone via Bluetooth for music playlists etc . Would also add that the staff at Richer Sounds were great, courteous, helpful & very efficient!

Just what I wanted.


The sound is excellent and it has a huge number of useful features. It has connections for four speakers, DAB radio, powerful clean sounding amplifier and is easy to set up. I could not ask for more. for my ears and budget it is perfect.

Nothing comes close for the price


Was looking to power Cambridge Aero 2 120w bookshelf speakers, nothing on the market at an affordable price that could do the 120W per channel so settled for this with 100W per channel. Plenty of power, can go ridiculously loud and be very anti-social....

So easy to set up and use


This receiver has replaced my old Yamaha amp which I bought with my first CD player - when the compact disc was a brand new thing. Early 90's? The old amp died when I used it with a cheap inverter on my boat and I went for a powerful surround sound...

Easy to use


Bought for a customer to use in their gym. Installed a DAB aerial, radio works great and the bluetooth is really good. Needed 4 channels to power the external speakers also, just enough volume for when they are partying around the pool...

Excellent value receiver


Early days but already very pleased with this purchase. Recently moved home and had an old pair of KEF Celeste III speakers standing idle which I thought would be a great addition to my man-cave. This combination has proved to be excellent so far.

very intuitive set-up

power cable could have been a little longer.
