Yamaha R-N602 is a model with a power of 80 W/channel at 8 Ohm which is a little more versus the competitor. It adopts the ToP-ART design and uses the best audio components to optimize playback of high-resolution audio files. Pure Direct mode is available to disable tone corrections (bass/treble) and get even better sound. The main disadvantage of this receiver in terms of the Onkyo TX-8260 vs Yamaha R-N602 comparison is the inability to work with two sets of speakers, which entails the lack of support for Zone 2. Networking capabilities are standard for this class of receivers.
