There's a lot to regret about the style of the 70s and 80s, but there's something to be said for the boxy, strong appearances of electronics of the era.  Apparently Yamaha thinks so too, since their new line captures that look.

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.
