True Sound

This is sound that only Yamaha can achieve, as the only audio brand in the world that addresses everything from the moment a sound is created to the moment it reaches the human ear. Close your eyes and be overwhelmed by the feeling of the artist right in front of you, and experience the impressive feeling of truly being "closer to the artist.


The position of the artist and instrument, and even the refined nuances and entire atmosphere of the performance space, are reproduced amazingly well. The resulting soundstage is so incredibly realistic that it feels like you are personally present at the performance.

Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO™).

Environmental factors play an important role in the sonic character of a room, and in any type of audio. Yamaha's proprietary automated YPAO™ calibration technique, refined over decades of use in home theater products, has been optimized for the R-N800A for an ideal listening environment. It feels like you're in a professional audio listening room, without having to manually adjust tricky settings yourself. YPAO™ features precision EQ, which performs exceptionally precise equalization for audio resolution with accuracy up to 192 kHz / 64-bit. YPAO™ R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) works with this to actively control the important early reverberation noise, automatically adjusting and optimizing how sound is reproduced in the room based on wall materials and speaker placement. This means you can enjoy the impressive sound and immersive feel unique to hi-fi audio, just in your own living room.


As opposed to just producing powerful sound, we strive for a sense of dynamics that expresses the contrast between stillness and movement in music. This allows you to feel the intensely deep emotions in the music and allows you to fully immerse yourself in that musical world.

Experience the legend, enjoy the musicality

Yamaha has more than 60 years of history as an audio brand. And the technology of the R-N800A comes directly from Yamaha's legendary hi-fi design concept ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) that faithfully preserves the integrity of the sound by combining carefully symmetrical left/right switching and signal targeting (straightest, shortest signal paths) with a low-vibration, high-stiffness chassis. This features the special synthetic resin frame "Art Base" that absorbs and blocks unnecessary vibrations to maintain sonic purity and dynamic sound.

Anti-resonance feet

The R-N800A is also equipped with anti-resonance feet designed to absorb unwanted vibrations. With a thin, curved reinforcement on the outer edge and a thick, straight reinforcement in the center, vibration energy is effectively dissipated and reduced through the outside of the footing, while maintaining central rigidity. This creates a focused sound in which you can feel the rhythm and dynamics of the music right down to your toes.

Tone Balance

This is the sustained faithful reproduction of all sounds, of all instruments and all vocals, at all pitches and in the full spectrum.

Enjoy the full harmony and musicality in the sound. You'll even hear sounds you never heard before.

High precision, high performance

The R-N800A uses the famous SABRE ES9080Q 384 kHz / 32-bit DAC (from ESS Technology) for the ultimate, advanced conversion. Combined with Yamaha's original network module, the receiver benefits from all the sonic advantages of Hi-Res sound sources, effectively reproducing even the subtle ambience of concert halls and delicate expressive nuances in sound.

Concept of low impedance

To thoroughly eliminate energy loss and degradation of the audio signal, the R-N800A features thick wiring for the ground connection. An essential feature that makes the components truly premium hi-fi. In addition, a screw terminal is included for the amplifier output to strengthen the ground connection, which is important for audio quality. With this, the R-N800A has achieved an open, natural soundstage that brings artist and listener closer together.

Unadulterated music experience from your smartphone

The R-N800A features Yamaha's original MusicCast networking system. Moreover, the receiver is compatible with a wide range of streaming services, such as Amazon Music HD and Spotify, so you can fully enjoy exceptional high-quality sound unique to today's Lossless and Hi-Res sources, with full fidelity. Additionally, you can stream Apple Music with Airplay 2. And with the MusicCast system, you can easily listen to music anywhere in your home by pairing multiple MusicCast devices with just one app on your smart device.

HiFi quality for all your music sources

From the audio you have stored on your PC or network drive to vinyl records and TV; the R-N800A always gives you superior sound and brings out the full sonic splendor in all your entertainment.

Enjoy your records too

The R-N800A's extensive connections include dedicated phono input jacks, making it easy to connect a turntable to enjoy your record collection.

USB DAC function

A stable transfer method using asynchronous transmission has been chosen. In addition, a high-precision crystal clock has been installed to improve the accuracy of signals. In addition, there is support for playback of native DSD 11.2 MHz and PCM 384 kHz, so you can enjoy exceptional high-quality sound that takes full advantage of high-resolution audio sources.


DAB and DAB+ are Digital Audio Broadcasting formats that offer a wide selection of radio stations with high sound quality. Other benefits include automatic tuning to available stations from a list and display of information, such as the name of the radio station. You can preset 40 DAB / DAB+ stations.

The purest sound

Pure Direct mode allows music signals to shorten the signal path and ignore the bass, treble and balance control circuits. This improves the purity of the sound and ensures that the sound quality retains its power.

Multiroom Audio - MusicCast

Entertainment content from your records, TV, CDs and other sources connected to the R-N800A can be sent to other MusicCast devices so you can enjoy it anywhere in your home. In addition, all MusicCast products are designed primarily to provide superior sound quality. Hi-Res audio formats, including Apple Lossless (ALAC) up to 96 kHz, WAV and FLAC or AIFF up to 384 kHz, are supported.
