Legendary Yamaha Hi-Fi Design Concept ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology)

This unit?s design is directly descended from the legendary Yamaha Hi-Fi design concept ToP-ART, which strives to faithfully preserve the integrity of the audio signals by combining a meticulously symmetrical left/right circuit layout and signal directness (straightest, shortest signal paths) with a low-vibration chassis of high rigidity, equipped with the special resin frame ?Art Base? that absorbs and blocks unnecessary vibration. It maintains sonic purity and accurate stereo image of the music to create unshakeable drivability.

Low-Impedance, High Output Power Amp

The power amp block adopts a symmetrical and direct circuit layout based on the ToP-ART concept, featuring a parallel push-pull structure using a total of eight bipolar-type power transistors (four each, on left and right) as its output terminals. Impedance is lowered by minimizing the lengths of the audio signal paths in the circuit design to achieve superb drive power with a maximum output of 145 watts (per channel).

YPAO for Ideal Sound (Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer)

For the first time in a Hi-Fi receiver, the R-N803 is equipped with the Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO), a famed technology used in Yamaha AV receivers. It measures the shape of the room, the material of the wall, and the position of the speaker, then automatically adjusts the sound to create the ideal response and sonic quality. The unit also features other advanced YPAO functions, including YPAO – Reflected Sound Control, which actively corrects the important early reflection sounds that greatly influence sound quality, and YPAO Volume, which applies exceptionally high-precision EQ (equalization), with 192 kHz/64-bit operation. The result? You can create an ideal listening environment right in your home, just like that of a professional audio listening room. Moreover, you can control the YPAO feature and display the analysis results by using the MusicCast app.*

* To be supported in future firmware updates.

Supports High-Resolution Music with ESS 192 kHz/24-bit DAC

The R-N803 is compatible with high-resolution sound sources: DSD 5.6 MHz native and AIFF, WAV, FLAC 192 kHz/24-bit, as well as Apple Lossless 96 kHz/24-bit. It uses the renowned SABRE 9006AS 192 kHz/24-bit DAC (from ESS Technology) to deliver superior S/N performance. Combined with the Yamaha original network module, the unit thoroughly draws out all the sonic merits of high-resolution sound sources, effectively reproducing even the subtle ambience of concert halls and delicate expressive nuances in the sound.
