“The R-N602 brings music fans a universe of Hi-Fi listening enjoyment without limits, connecting them to the endless number of audiophile gear and source options available today,” said Bob Goedken, Yamaha Corporation of America

Yamaha today introduced the R-N602 network Hi-Fi receiver, which brings together the company’s legendary natural sound with unprecedented connectivity to virtually any source. Integrating the Yamaha MusicCast wireless multiroom audio system, this receiver can access content from a wide array of home components, smartphones and streaming services.

MusicCast makes it possible for this Hi-Fi receiver to stream content from other Yamaha MusicCast-enabled products and components connected to them, as well as PCs, NAS devices and even TVs. The R-N602 is one of the 20 Yamaha MusicCast products across the AV receiver, Hi-Fi, speaker and sound bar categories that will be available by the end of 2015.

“The R-N602 brings music fans a universe of Hi-Fi listening enjoyment without limits, connecting them to the endless number of audiophile gear and source options available today,” said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America. “At the same time, its sound quality, which is always our top priority, will exceed the expectations of the most discerning listeners.”

All parts and materials integrated in the R-N602 have been carefully selected and tested to present the signature Yamaha natural sound from all sources. A high performance 24-bit D/A converter provides 5.6 MHz DSD native resolution and AIFF 192 kHz/24-bit audio for the faithful reproduction of high-resolution audio, including WAV/FLAC (up to 192 kHz/24-bit) and Apple® Lossless (up to 96 kHz/24-bit) content.

Ensuring maximum performance, the R-N602 utilizes dual independent power supplies for analog and digital sound sources, as well as employing the original Yamaha ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) design and engineering concept.

Yamaha Natural Sound for a Universe of Content

The R-N602 offers support for Pandora®, Spotify, Rhapsody® and SiriusXM Internet Radio and versatile streaming via Bluetooth® and AirPlay®, in addition to MusicCast. Like all MusicCast components, the R-N602 supports Bluetooth playback and can re-stream Bluetooth content to MusicCast-enabled speakers and other components in other rooms when on the Wi-Fi network. Content can also be streamed from the R-N602 to other Bluetooth devices such as headphones and speakers.

The intuitive and visually appealing MusicCast app for Apple® and Android smartphones and tablets lets users browse and access content to play in one or multiple rooms. The app’s attractive interface offers numerous personalization features, such as enabling the Rooms menu to be customized with pictures from the user’s own home while the source buttons can be renamed or even hidden. The R-N602 is also packaged with an easy to operate remote control.
