ToP-ART Sound Quality Design and Highest Quality Parts
Everything in the R-N602 has been built for maximum performance and high quality. The internal design utilises simple, direct transmission of the signals— ensuring optimum separation, elimination of noise and distortion, and pure sound reproduction. This includes dual independent power supplies for the two sound sources, analogue and digital, as well as Yamaha’s original ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) and Art Base chassis construction to fully protect audio signals from noise and vibration. Moreover, all parts and materials have been carefully selected and tested, to make sure they are of only the highest quality—so that they all work together to provide the absolute best sound possible.
5.6MHz DSD Native and AIFF 192kHz/24bit Reproduction with High Performance 24-bit D/A Converter
5.6MHz DSD Native Resolution and AIFF 192kHz/24-bit Reproduction with High Performance 24-bit D/A Converter To ensure maximum network audio quality, the receiver supports WAV/FLAC 192kHz/24-bit, Apple Lossless 96kHz/24-bit, DSD 5.6MHz and even the new AIFF 192kHz/24-bit formats. It uses a BurrBrown 192kHz/24-bit DAC that has a firmly established reputation for quality. You’ll enjoy the beautiful sounds of high resolution audio.
Pure Direct Mode for Greater Sound Purity
Engaging the Pure Direct switch causes the audio signal to bypass the control circuits for bass and treble, balance and the back buffer amp. This improves sound quality while maintaining full output capacity. Shortening the signal route improves sound purity, helping to reproduce even the most delicate musical nuances.
Digital Audio Input for TV or Blu-ray Player
The R-N602 is equipped for digital audio input—with both optical and coaxial terminals. The optical is for receiving audio from a TV, and the coaxial for receiving audio from a Blu-ray player. The audio stays in the digital domain, giving you pure, pristine dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources, from sports and other programmes to movies and concerts.
Simple yet Sophisticated Design
With a beautifully simple and unique design inherited directly from Yamaha’s HiFi audio components, the R-N602 also boasts an easy-to-operate button layout. The aluminium front panel has a richly textured silver hairline finish. Both inside and out, everything about the R-N602 demonstrates our commitment to superior design and operability.
Eco Mode and Auto Power Standby
The R-N602 has an ECO mode that reduces power consumption by about 20%*, and an Auto power standby function that you can set to turn the power off after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours.
