The Yamaha R-N303 has an AM / FM radio onboard and a good Burr-Brown integrated DAC, and decoding options extend to Hi-Res PCM (24/192 kHz) and DSD128. The model can work with DLNA, taking content via Ethernet / Wi-Fi. Users can connect to streaming services, for example, to popular Tidal and Spotify. The output power is quite good, at 125 W/channel versus 80 W for the R-N602. However, if we compare the Yamaha R-N303BL vs Yamaha R-N602 in terms of supported decoders, it should be noted that the models lack most of the most popular decoders.
Yamaha R-N602 is a stereo network receiver with DSD support with a 5.6 MHz music playback. It synchronizes with MusicCast and is endowed with all the necessary network functions such as Wi-Fi. Built-in MusicCast technology is fully compatible with high-resolution audio. You can also use the convenient AirPlay feature to stream music wirelessly from your iPhone or iPad. The digital-to-analog conversion is performed by the Burr-Brown DSD1791 chip which is capable of processing not only a PCM stream with parameters of 24 bit / 192 kHz, but also material in the DSD format.
