Design

The black chrome design is minimalistic and will fit your living room beautifully. You have the black front panel with white letters. All the main control buttons and switches are located in the front panels. It also has a USB for your Smartphone etc. That is really convenient.

This AV receiver plays all the existing audio formats. Starting with WAV, MP3, FLAC, AAC, WMA, AIFF, Apple lossless and many others. You also have digital internet radio to enjoy.

Performance

The MusicCast gives you an ultimate multiroom experience allowing you to control it through the app on your smartphone or tablet. The Yamaha quality is amazing and it is not just due to the brand name.

Sound Quality

You have the Pure Direct technology offering you the best sound quality Yamaha has been capable of. Yamaha has also created Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology aka their own way to eliminate the harmonic distortion and separation.

Connectivity

Try out the Yamaha signature MusicCast Multiroom audio technology. You also have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Wireless Direct. So you get to enjoy all the streaming services like Amazon music, Spotify, Pandora, AirPlay, Rhapsody, and many others.

Setup

Although the functions are numerous and versatile the setup and alignment were really simple. The controls are intuitive, the available app makes the control very easy. Which is good because it means the device has been created with the regular users in mind.

Conclusion

Although somewhat pricey with the regular retail price of up to $600 R-N602 compensates for it with the ultimate connectivity options and quality. You can enjoy all the sound sources in your house starting with the high-resolution ones to the smartphones and all existing streaming services.

I am also happy with parts and labor warranty which means you do not have to worry about repair costs. Since the output power is only 160 W the receiver is very energy efficient and wallet-friendly.
