Japanese craftmanship and hi-fi tradition combine with cutting-edge digital technology to ensure Yamaha’s R-N2000A streaming receiver is both stunning and innovative. The vintage-inspired front panel sports traditional VU meters and tactile controls but these are augmented by a classy OLED display to help navigate its plentiful features. Yamaha’s excellent MusicCast app delivers streaming options and multiroom functionality, but there are also inputs for a TV and turntable, plus FM radio. Under the hood, Yamaha’s tried-and-tested amplifier technology delivers a musical, refined performance, with fine detail painted over a wide and deep soundstage. Yamaha’s YPAO room correction is particularly welcome, allowing this amp to deliver the goods in every room.
