Entry-Level Network Receiver Is Really a Fully Featured Audio Hub, Streamer, and Headphone Amp: 100Wpc Yamaha R-N303 Supports High-Resolution 2x DSD, Vinyl Playback, TVs, and More
Anyone who grew up in the 70s and 80s will immediately be jealous of the Yamaha R-N303 network stereo receiver. Music lovers on a tight budget would've done about anything to have so many features and such excellent sound quality available on an entry-level high-end piece for less than $350. Outfitted with a built-in phono preamplifier for vinyl playback, optical and coaxial inputs for TVs, and Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirPlay, R-N303 also delivers genuine high-res audio by supporting up to 2x DSD and lossless 24-bit/192kHz FLAC files. Pandora, TIDAL, Spotify, SiriusXM, Internet radio, all the tunes on your smart devices and computers – just a fingertip touch away. And Yamaha's MusicCast technology lets you access all your music on a mobile app and wirelessly stream it through up to nine rooms over your Wi-Fi network when you add other MusicCast devices.
When it comes to drive, R-N303 is no shrinking violet. Two channels boast 100 watts of dynamic, high-output power while the amplifier's single push-pull, discrete configuration ensures engaging clarity and ear-catching liveliness. R-N303 even touts a headphone amplifier for intimate listening. Clean, elegant looks and, again, that incredibly low price tag further sweeten the deal on a receiver that's almost too good to be true. Our Money-Back Guarantee gives you assurance it's for real – and then some.

High-Quality Sound, In-House-Designed Network Module
The key device that determines the sound quality of network audio is the Yamaha
original network module, which contains a high-precision, low-jitter clock that
improves the reproduction of high-resolution sound sources. Pure audio clock
generation without an added jitter constituent caused by the
clock generator sharply lowers the creation of jitter noise when
playing network, USB and Bluetooth sources, and achieves
further S/N improvement. It faithfully distinguishes delicate
differences in the sonic characteristics of high-resolution
Built for High Resolution
R-N303 is compatible with high-resolution sound sources: DSD 5.6 MHz native
and 24-bit/192kHz AIFF, WAV, and FLAC as well as 24-bit/96kHz Apple Lossless . It uses
a Burr-Brown 192 kHz/24-bit DAC to deliver superior S/N
performance. Combined with the Yamaha original network
module, the unit thoroughly draws out all the sonic merits of
high-resolution sound sources, effectively reproducing even the
subtle ambience of concert halls and delicate expressive nuances
in the sound.
Low-Noise Circuitry Design and High-Grade Parts
This receiver features circuitry design that prioritizes sound quality, drawing on the
Yamaha Hi-Fi concept, and effectively lowering mutual interference by dividing the
analog and digital sections into separate blocks. It utilizes carefully selected quality parts also used in high-end models, which have been thoroughly optimized for
superior sound. The result is exceptionally low noise and superior S/N performance,
for sound reproduction filled with a sense of spaciousness.
