Yamaha's R-S700, R-S500 and R-S300 stereo receivers are built with modern technology, like ToP-ART circuitry and a special power supply that will get the cleanest sound possible from your iPod. The $549 R-S700 offers 100 watts of power, while the 500 ($399) and 300 ($329) boast 75 and 50 watts respectively.
In addition to the retro styled receivers, Yamaha has announced an amplifier and a tuner. The A-S500 amp utilizes Yamaha Pure Direct technology to bypass non-essential circuitry and comes in at $449. The $299 tuner offers digital AM/FM tuning capabilities and a few other features to boot.
All models also include a subwoofer output, dedicated phono input, and compatibility with the YDS-10 and YID-W10 iPhone docks as well as the YBA-10 Bluetooth receiver.
