Solid Yamaha power for stereo lovers

The Yamaha R-S700 is designed for people who like spending time listening to music. Yes, there's an input for a turntable, and a tape deck. Of course, there's an input for a CD player. But this receiver has a few other cool tricks up its sleeve, too.

Luxurious CD sound

Lots of us still like listening to music on CDs. This receiver's CD Direct Amplification feature creates a balanced internal signal path to boost the CD input's signal-to-noise ratio for better detail and clarity in your music.

Little details matter

Heat is the enemy of clean sound. The R-S700 features tandem heat sinks for more efficient cooling so your favorites sound like they were meant to. And the gold-plated speaker terminals and RCA jacks ensure high-quality, corrosion-free connections.

And to increase your listening space this receiver offers dual zone capability so you can connect and power speakers in another room and even control the system with a second included remote (IR repeater required, not included.)

Product highlights:

  • 100 watts x 2 (stereo) into 8 ohms (20-20,000 Hz) at 0.02% THD
  • 4-ohm capability allows use with a wide range of speakers
  • 40 AM/FM presets
  • 6 stereo RCA inputs (including phono)
  • 1 mono RCA output for powered subwoofer

Audio Features

ToP-ART/High Current Amplification: Yamaha uses the ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) design concept, which combines the latest and best technologies, parts, and circuit designs, to maximize sound quality. High Current Amplification uses superior quality components from input to output to achieve high current power with low impedance.

High-Quality Power Amplifier: With 100 watts of power per channel (at 8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.019% THD), the R-S700 delivers solid, reliable audio performance even when driving both A and B speakers at the same time.

Wide Frequency Response: The receiver's wide frequency response, 10Hz to 50kHz, allows you to enjoy the full fidelity of any source with two channel analog outputs.

Dual Zone Capability: The R-S700 allows you to play two different analog sources in two zones. The receiver has a pair of stereo preamp outputs for Zone 2. You can control the receiver from the second zone using the supplied Zone 2 remote control when an infrared signal repeater system is used. A separate amplifier or stereo receiver with a pair of speakers, or a powered speaker system is required for zone 2.

Loudness: The amount of loudness compensation is adjustable, using a rotary knob on the front panel.

CD Direct Amplification: The CD Direct Amp feature routes the CD signal directly to a specially built-in amplifier, bypassing the input selector, bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. This eliminates any coloring of the CD signal and produces the most accurate sound. The resulting signal to noise ratio is 107 dB.

Pure Direct: The Pure Direct feature bypasses the bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls for the best sound from any source.

Record Out Selector: Front panel rotary knobs let you listen to one source, while feeding a different source to the Tape and Line 1 outputs for recording.

Speaker Terminals: All of the receiver's speaker terminals are binding posts. They are not 5-way binding posts because a plastic collar prevents their use with spade lugs and they are too far apart for dual banana plugs.

Bi-Wire: Compatible speakers can be bi-wired using the A and B speaker terminals simultaneously (they are wired in parallel).

Impedance Switch: The R-S700 has an impedance switch, allowing operation with two pair of 6 ohm speakers.

Pre Out/Main In Loops: The left and right preamp outputs are connected to left and right main amp inputs, respectively, with U shaped metal jumpers. The jumpers may be removed to facilitate the connection of an equalizer or external amplifier.

Phono: The RCA phono input is designed for moving magnet (MM) turntable cartridges. If you have a moving coil (MC) cartridge a phono preamp is necessary.

Subwoofer Output: The stereo receiver is equipped with a mono-subwoofer output for connecting a powered subwoofer.

Headphone Jack: The receiver has a standard 1/4" headphone jack on the front panel for private listening. When headphones are plugged in, the receiver's speaker output is not muted, so remember to turn the A and B speakers off.

Max Volume Adjustment: Use this feature to set the maximum volume level (separate settings in the main zone and Zone 2); used to avoid turning the volume too loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from -30 dB to +15 dB in 5 dB steps, or to +16.5 dB (full volume range is -89.5 dB to +16.5 dB).

Initial Volume Setting: Use this feature to specify the volume level when the power is turned on (separate settings in the main zone and Zone 2); choose between Off (same as the volume when the unit was turned off), Mute, and -89.5 dB to + 16.5 dB in 0.5 dB increments.

12V Trigger Output: A programmable mini-jack output sends a 12-volt DC turn-on signal (0.1A max) to another component that accepts a 12-volt trigger, such as a CD player or amplifier to power Zone 2. The trigger is programmed either to work with a specific zone (main room, Zone2, or either) or a specific source.

Power Management: The power (main room and Zone 2) can be set to turn off after a specific amount of time without any adjustments being made; options include 4, 8, or 12 hours.

Sleep Timer: The sleep timer turns the receiver off after 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.

Remote Control

RAX25 Remote Control: The main remote control can operate the receiver as well as other remote control capable components from Yamaha and other manufacturers. The remote is pre-programmed with control signals for other brand TVs, VCRs, DVD player/recorders, Blu-ray disc players, DVRs, cable boxes, and satellite receivers, along with Yamaha CD player/recorders, MD player/recorders, tape decks, and LD players.

RAX28 Remote Control: The Zone 2 remote allows you to turn the second room output on/off, select the source, adjust the volume, and control the AM/FM tuner, SiriusConnect tuner (optional), or iPod dock (optional) from the second room when an infrared signal repeater system is used.

Remote Jack: The receiver has two mini-jack inputs and a mini-jack output for use with other compatible components.

Q
What Bluetooth adapter is compatible with the rs700? Yamaha does not make the yba10 anymore and yba11 is not compatible.
[ Ad  Aug 16, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I use the Audioengine B1 Bluetooth adapter. It is the best in both range and quality of sound reproduction. It is more expensive than the rest of the herd but worth every penny. Works great with iOS & Android and has aptX codec near CD quality listening. Search Crutchfield site for it.

Q
can a tv be run thru this receiver for the audio ?
[ david  Aug 03, 2017 ]
3 answers
A
Well yes & no. You can run standard stereo inputs,(right & left Into auxiliary rca jacks) but no hdmi input or multi channel hook ups. This receiver is primarily 2 channel sound reproduction. And does that very well.
[ donald  Aug 22, 2017 ]
A
Yes, you can hook up a TV to the receiver. But there are no digital inputs on this receiver, only RCA analog cable inputs. So if your TV has RCA outputs, then it will run to the receiver very easily. However, most new TVs no longer have an RCA output and they only have digital outputs such as a Toslink. If this is the case, you must buy a digital to analog converter (DAC) in order to connect to the receiver. You plug a toslink into one end of the converter and it has RCA on the other side of the converter They run about $30 bucks on amazon or Ebay for a decent one. That's what I had to do. Great receiver and strong sound- much better than my old Onkyo receiver.
[ Paul  Aug 05, 2017 ]
A
David, yes it can. I have a set of RCA cables from my TV going into LINE 3 on my receiver. So much better than the TV speakers.

I use a headphone jack to stereo cable. Stereo goes into one of the line inputs and the headphone jack goes into the iPod (or anything with a headphone jack, really) and then just toggle the input to match whichever line you plugged into.
[ Brian  Aug 04, 2017 ]
A
Yes it can. You need to plug the iPod cradle into either the CD or Tuner jack in the back. Set the Input (front) to whichever jack you plugged the iPod cradle into. Set the iPod in the cradle and start your music.
[ SKIP  Aug 04, 2017 ]

ps: I read through some of the answers to related questions, and remembered that it is also possible to do this via Bluetooth, search out that answer for another alternative. The question was from Sherry C dated May 15, 2015, and was answered by Phillip A.
[ Christopher J  Dec 14, 2016 ]
A
I don't think that you can make a direct digital connection. You can buy an adapter that will let you connect the headphone output from your phone to one of the auxiliary inputs on the back of the receiver, that is what I do with my iPhone.
[ Christopher J  Dec 14, 2016 ]
A
Sis...don't believe this unit has any access for smart devices. I bought this model for its very basic design, so my wife would be able to operate. I would call Crutchfield tech support [they are excellent] and inquire about a possible adapter/converter.
[ ANTHONY  Dec 14, 2016 ]
A
The instructions say you will need an optional universal dock to connect a phone but it only mentions iPhones as being supported. It does you can connect a Bluetooth device with an optional Yamaha YBA-10 Bluetooth wireless receiver, but it does not mention Android as being supported.

[ DONALD  Oct 29, 2016 ]
A
I use the Yamaha R-S700 with 35 year old 4-ohm AR-9's with the drivers refoamed and they sound the very best they ever have. 4 ohm is harder to drive cleanly than 8 ohm. Previously I used a Yamaha M-80 amp and a C-80 pre amp and expected the R-700 to be less. I was wrong and even better at high volume the new Yamaha has even less hum/noise than the M-80, which was the best I'd heard then. 35 years ago the M +C 80 pair cost ten times what the R-S700 cost.
[ SCOT  Oct 29, 2016 ]
Q
I purchased this unit in April and have been very pleased with its performance. However, there have been times when it will turn itself off. What is the cause of rs700 to turn off? It drives my turntable,tape deck, CD player and equalizer with no problem,but will turn itself. What is the problem?

Q
Is this compatible with definitive technology subwoofer,the prosub 800?will this run well the definitive technology bp8020st loudspeaker?
[ Jane  May 10, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
Absolutely; on both counts. The Yamaha offers a dedicated subwoofer pre-amp output for providing signal to a powered subwoofer (like the ProSub800) and will certainly power a pair of the bp8020st tower speakers. Keep in mind; the bp8020st speakers have their own built-in powered subwoofers so you'll need to split the Yamaha's single RCA subwoofer output to provide signal to both towers and/or a separate powered subwoofer: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_703M22F/AudioQuest-FLX-X-RCA-Y-Adapter.html I hope that helps!

Q
Can i add a Yamaha power amplifier to this receiver? and if i can how would you connect the amp to the receiver? thank you
[ henry  Sep 28, 2015 ]
5 answers
A
I haven't done this, and I'm not an expert, but I think you can do this by using the "Pre Out" outputs on the back panel. As purchased, these are connected to the "Main In" inputs with two jumpers. If you disconnect these and feed the "Pre Out" to your power amplifier, it should work -- the receiver would then function as a pre-amp (and tuner), and its amplifier section would be disconnected. You would lose the multi-zone capability, I would imagine, since those are outputs from the main amplifier.
[ GREGORY  Sep 29, 2015 ]
A
Hi Henry - yes, you can. It's specifically why I bought this receiver. You would use the Line out inputs on the amp and connect them to the coupler inputs, Main in/Pre out inputs (you have to remove the little plugs off the receiver that are filling the inputs). It's awesome! Good luck :)

I am so sorry I do not know the answer. Call Yamaha, they will tell you.

You can connect the mains and pre-outs to an amplifier and then connect more speakers. It is really a great system !
[ mikey  Sep 29, 2015 ]
A
Why would you. The 100w x 2 is pretty powerful. The answer to your question is yes. There is a "zone 2" out which you could use to connect to an analog signal via RCA to dedicated amplifier. As far as I can tell looking on the back, there is not a digital out.

I have the rs500. I used the Focal Universal Bluetooth adapter from crutchfield. Plug it into one of the RCA connections ex., line 1, 2, or 3 (or any you are not using). You can then link any Bluetooth enabled device. Set your receiver volume a little louder than normal and use your device to control your listening. My iPad, iPhone work great with it.

Q
Many new receivers do not offer a tape 2/monitor input for running graphic equalizers. Is it possible to run an eq with this receiver?
[ CJ Moore  Apr 19, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
You should attach the equalizer to the receiver's tape monitor loop instead of the recorder . Any equalizer you buy should also have a tape monitor loop. You should attach your recorder to the equalizer's tape monitor. The equalizer should have switches that determine whether an equalized signal goes to the recorder. This type of setup goes back decades. A large number of older receivers only had one tape monitor loop..

My Yamaha R-S700 is paired with Polk Audio (2) RTIA7's and (1) PSW125. The room they are in is approximately 15 X 27 and I consider it to be very adequate. When I originally purchased the system I was going to get 4 RTIA7's but after playing it for a few months I found that I did not need 4 of them. If my hearing starts to go because I play this set up too loud then I will purchase 2 more RTIA7's! In conclusion I really enjoy this set up and I would definitely recommend it. My floor shakes when I crank it up and my chandelier moves. Just one thing carefully match up your speakers with the Yamaha R-S700 Crutchfield did a great job form me.
[ BRIAN  Apr 08, 2015 ]

With the Klipsch RF82 and the Yamaha R-S700, look like a excellent choice, you will get the highs and lows with the speakers system. The Amount of power you will push out will be less than 20 watts.

You can use banana plug connectors on the speaker terminals of the Yamaha R-S700. The instructions are on page 13 of owners manual. Frankly the banana connectors just seem to be a waste of money unless you are using a very heavy gauge wire. It is very easy to connect bare speaker wire to the terminals.

I can't answer your question in the detail you have asked but I can say that I have 2 polk audio rtia7 towers and a 12 inch polk audio subwoofer and it rocks my house! My kids can't believe that the cops have not been to my house yet and I have a single family detached home with a good sized yard. The loudest I have played my yamaha rs-700 is +5 on either a CD or a FM station that come in perfectly. One more thing I have never had a stereo that sounded so good in every way. And If I blow up something I'll replace with the same equiptment.

Do you still have the package your head phones came in? Most headphones come with a larger jack that threads over the smaller jack. If you no longer have the parts that came with your headphones you might be able to find the larger jack that threads over your headphones small jack at your local electronics store. Were your Head phones designed for an iPad or a laptop? If so, your headphones may not be capable of using a larger Jack. In this case You may want to give thought to buying a headphone set from Crutchfield designed to work with your Yamaha R-S700.

You can try to get a headphone jack adapter. The receiver has a 1/4 inch headphone jack.

I have 4 Rock Solid speakers in my great room (up to 150W into 8ohms) and 2 outside. I have A speakers going into a switch so I can control the great front and back option then B is for outside. Is RS700 right?

This is very similar to my arrangement. I think the RS700 will work great for you, it sure does for me.

My R-S700 is working great. I have 4 sets of speakers going using a splitter box. Turntable, cd player, DVD player hooked up without any problems. I would not hesitate to purchase this receiver again.

Q
The Yamaha r-s700 has A and B speaker connections, but can it run A and B simultaneously?

Yes it can run both sets of speakers at the same time.
[ JOHN E  Dec 07, 2013 ]

Even though I only have 1 pair of speakers running at this time the, you can run 2 sets at a time . Impedance switch is there in the back . also amp can be bi-wired for low / mid high separations. if you need just a stereo receiver this one will not disappoint for the money. typ yamaha can record on one set of outputs and playback another source thru amp.

Ray - The Yamaha r -s700 can push Speakers A and B simultaneously without any problem. I own the Yamaha r -s700 and I highly recommend the tuner.
[ DAVID  Dec 06, 2013 ]

Yes. I only have one set of speakers connected to my receiver and have never played two sets of speakers simultaneously. However the buttons for both sets of speakers can be on at the same time. Most receivers with speaker push buttons can play both sets simultaneously. The only thing that you have to worry about is the combined speaker impedance load. This normally is only a problem if the individual speaker impedance ratings are 4 ohms or less.

I have only two speakers connected to my unit; however I checked the owner's manual and it appears that they can all work simultaneously. Two A speakers, two B speakers, and a subwoofer are all shown connected at once. In the diagram the A speakers are larger in size. Hope that helps!
