Or, enjoy streaming music services and internet radio (with vTuner). Moreover, Yamaha’s original NP Controller App allows you to enjoy your favourite tunes on a smartphone or tablet device via wireless connection.

Listen to Internet radio stations from around the world and access music streaming

Support for the vTuner radio station database enables sampling of Internet radio broadcasts throughout the world by connecting to the Internet over a LAN. Furthermore, support for music streaming allows you to enjoy a wide variety of music content.

NP Controller App lets you operate from your smartphone or tablet

Download Yamaha’s handy NP Controller App and use it to browse through music sources on your smart device’s display, and even view song information and album art. What’s more, it features a MusicPlay function that lets you enjoy music streaming, without having to select a different app. Compatible with either smartphone or tablet, it also gives you control over network and other settings.

AirPlay compatible

The R-N500 Network Receiver has virtually all of your music playback bases covered. This includes full compatibility with AirPlay—which means you get the convenience of wireless music playback from your Mac, iPod, iPhone or iPad, as well as from a PC.

FLAC or WAV 192kHz/24-bit Audio Playback

Compatibility with FLAC/WAV 192kHz/24bit playback is built in, bringing you the sound accuracy with rich expressive power that's only possible from high resolution sources. Yamaha technologies refined over many years ensure high stability and reliability.

Digital Audio Input for TV or Blu-ray Player

The R-N500 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.

USB digital connection for iPod, iPhone, iPad and USB devices

The R-N500 provides a USB port on the front panel for quick connection of an iPod, iPhone, iPad or USB stick. You have instant access to all your stored music, and the digital connection ensures that you hear it with the highest possible sound quality.

ToP-ART Sound Quality Design and Highest Quality Parts

Everything in the R-N500 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.

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.

Continuously Variable Loudness Control

The R-N500 also features a dedicated loudness control on the front panel, which lets you adjust the loudness effect as desired. Separate from the overall volume, this controls the balance of the low- and high-frequency sounds, providing full tonal range at any volume level, compensating for the natural loss in the human ear of high and low frequencies at soft levels.

Simple yet Sophisticated Design

With a beautifully simple and unique design inherited directly from Yamaha’s HiFi audio components, the R-N500 also boasts an easy-to-operate button layout. The aluminium front panel has a richly textured silver hairline finish. The control knobs are also of the same luxurious construction as used on our top-end models. Both inside and out, everything about the R-N500 demonstrates our commitment to superior design and operability.
