From Yamaha R-S202 specs a distinctive “new” feature of this stereo receiver is Bluetooth technology. Using Bluetooth, you can stream (transfer) music or other audio content. The combination of signature sound and attractive prices make it a bargain for beginner audiophiles. See more thoughts in this Yamaha R-S202 review.
Output power 100 W per channel at a load of 8 ohms. The R-S202 receiver allows you to store in your memory up to 40 FM stations, the Auto Preset function serves for this. The model has several pairs of connectors, which allows you to connect several speakers. A special selector allows you to switch between them.
The front panel is simple and concise. Large buttons control the switching of the tone block and inputs. The small buttons switch the channels of the radio stations, tune them, and choose the acoustics that are currently working. The front panel, black, is made of aluminum. On the rear panel there are analog inputs for a CD player and two more pairs of universal ones. There is a set of inputs and outputs, designed, for example, for a cassette recorder, babin tape recorder or other recorder. Two pairs of spring terminals for acoustics allow the receiver to be used together with acoustics in configuration A or B, A B. The remote control is made of plastic. It is quite simple, there are a huge number of small buttons on it, and there is no backlight. The remote can also control Yamaha CD players.
The budget class of the device is given by acoustic terminals - there are four pairs of them for connecting two pairs of speakers, but all of them, unfortunately, are spring-loaded. The device is equipped with four line inputs on the RCA connectors and one output.
Please note that there is no management application. Therefore, you will have to love this remote control, or look for a universal alternative. Setting up the R-S202 receiver took only a few minutes. It consisted in connecting acoustics. I saved a lot of time, because I did not have to set the distance to each of the acoustics, signal levels for each channel, or start auto-tuning, as it usually happens during the setup of a modern AV receiver.
