Stereo sound for any room

Yamaha's R-N303 is a great choice for anyone looking to enjoy smooth stereo sound from a variety of sources, both wired and wireless. Its analog and digital connections let you hook up traditional analog components, like a CD player or turntable. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth give you even more ways to listen.

Easy wireless music listening

Yamaha's flexible MusicCast multi-room system lets you enjoy all your music sources in other rooms. That includes Bluetooth streams or components connected to the R-N303's analog inputs. Just add compatible speakers and components to other areas of your home where you want to hear your music. Control your whole-house system using Yamaha's colorful and intuitive MusicCast app on your phone or tablet.

Hands-on time with the 'RN03

"Normally, I wouldn't expect much from a stereo receiver at this price. But I've come to expect more from Yamaha, and this amp delivered. It had plenty of power for my relatively inefficient bookshelf speakers. And the wireless features like Bluetooth and Yamaha's MusicCast platform open up lots of streaming listening possibilities."

-David Brown, Crutchfield editor

High Power Stereo Amplifier: Engineered for sonic power, Yamaha's R-N303 is equipped with a high-quality, high-power amp, featuring a single push-pull and discrete configuration that delivers a maximum output of 100 watts x 2 channels (8 ohms, 40Hz-20 kHz, 0.2% THD). Its low-impedance design minimizes the lengths of the audio signal paths, while placing the power supply unit near the amp unit eliminates energy loss and achieves superior drivability for optimum sound reproduction with all kinds of speakers, providing exceptionally dynamic, exciting sound.

Analog Inputs & Output: The Yamaha network receiver features four stereo analog RCA inputs (including a Phono input). There is also a stereo analog RCA output.

Phono Input: The Yamaha R-N303 stereo receiver features a dedicated Phono (MM) input for connecting your turntable and listening to your vinyl records.

Optical & Coaxial Digital Inputs: The R-N303 is equipped for digital audio input, with both optical (toslink) and coaxial (RCA) terminals. Both digital inputs support 2ch PCM (32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192 kHz).

Note: The digital outputs are not compatible with Dolby Digital, DTS, or other multichannel audio formats.

A/B Speaker Terminals: The R-N303 is fitted with A & B speaker terminals so you can power up to two pair of speakers. The speaker selector switch on the front-panel of the receiver makes it easy to switch between speaker outputs, allowing you to hear the sound from one speaker pair (A or B) or from both speaker pairs (A+B). In addition, compatible speakers can be bi-wired using the A & B speaker terminals simultaneously (they are wired in parallel). The eight binding-post speaker terminals that will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). If connecting one pair of speakers to either the A or B outputs, the minimum speaker impedance needs to be 8 ohms. If connecting speakers to both A & B terminals, the minimum speaker impedance needs to be 16 ohms.

Headphone Jack: The Yamaha R-N303 is equipped with a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack for connecting a set of headphone, so you can listen to your music privately. Connecting a set of headphones automatically mutes the receiver's speaker outputs.

Tone Control: You can adjust the balance of the high-frequency range (Treble) and low-frequency range (Bass) of sounds output from the receiver' front left and right speakers to obtain a desired tone. You can independently adjust the bass (50Hz) and treble (20kHz) from -10dB to +10dB in 0.5 dB increments. You can also balance your connected speakers left to right.

Volume Setup: You can set the stereo receiver's maximum volume from 1-99 (1 step increments) to prevent excessive loudness. You can also set the receiver's initial volume to 1-99 (1 step increments), Off, Mute, or Max when the unit is turned on.

  • Max Volume Adjustment: Use this feature to set the receiver's maximum volume level. This feature is useful to avoid turning the volume too loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from -30 dB to +15 dB in 5 dB steps, or to +16.5 dB (full volume range is -80 dB to +16.5 dB).
  • Initial Volume Setting: Use this feature to set the volume level when the power is turned on. You can choose between Off (same as the volume when the unit was turned off), Mute, and -80 dB to + 16.5 dB in increments of 0.5 dB.

Network & Tuner Functions

Wired or Wireless Network Connection: The Yamaha stereo receiver is fitted with a RJ-45 Ethernet (LAN) port to connect the receiver to your home network.

Bluetooth & Remote Control

Built-in Bluetooth: The Yamaha R-N303 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (version 2.1+EDR) for wireless communication between Bluetooth-enabled audio source devices, headphones, and speakers. The AV receiver can act as a Bluetooth receiver in order to wirelessly stream music from an audio device, or a Bluetooth transmitter in order to wirelessly stream music to a set of BT-enabled headphones/speakers.

  • Bluetooth Receiver: The R-N303 incorporates Bluetooth A2DP & AVRCP, so you can wirelessly stream stored music & music apps from a Bluetooth-enabled device; like your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows Phone/PC, or Mac computer/laptop to the AV receiver. In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the receiver offers support of AAC.

You'll you be able to control basic playback functions, like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track from the receiver's remote; advance music browsing still has to be done from your Bluetooth source device.
  • Bluetooth Transmitter: The Yamaha stereo receiver can also act as a Bluetooth transmitter and stream its non-Bluetooth audio sources (Network, Analog, Optical/Coax Digital, & AM/FM tuner) out to most any Bluetooth headphone or speaker. You can only pair and stream audio to one Bluetooth headphone or speaker at a time. You can even have the same source playing from the main speakers and a Bluetooth speaker/headphone simultaneously (there is a slight audio delay). Volume control of the Bluetooth speaker/headphone will be controlled via the Bluetooth device and not the receiver. *To use this feature, the receiver must be connected to your home network and you will need to use MusicCast Controller app on your Apple iOS or Android device to configure the receiver as a Bluetooth transmitter.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Yamaha stereo receiver.

Alexa Compatible (Firmware Update Required): Alexa-enabled devices (including the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Tap and Echo Show) will soon be able to control key functions of a MusicCast system using voice commands. An available firmware update will be available for download that allows key functions of MusicCast products to be controlled using your voice through Alexa-enabled devices (sold separately).

  • Alexa Skill: The MusicCast skill for Alexa will allow you to power MusicCast products on and off, control basic playback functions, make selections from a playlist of favorite music, adjust the volume, and use the Link function for playback of multiple MusicCast products simultaneously.
  • Echo Source Input: In addition or alternatively, an Echo device can be used as a music/audio source for a MusicCast system. All MusicCast devices offer a Bluetooth input. Just pair your Echo, Echo Dot or Echo Show with any MusicCast wireless speaker, sound bar or stereo receiver and the sound will play from the MusicCast device. Using the MusicCast app, you can then select the Bluetooth input and link multiple MusicCast devices for playback, allowing you to hear it throughout your home. Many MusicCast products also offer inputs which can be connected to Echo Dot via its line output, if a wired connection is preferred over Bluetooth. This requires using an optional analog audio cable (sold separately). Using the MusicCast app, you can select the wired input and link multiple MusicCast devices for playback, allowing you to hear sound from Echo Dot throughout your home.
Note: You will need an Alexa-enabled device (Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Tap, or Echo Show - all sold separately) to operate certain functions of your MusicCast products via voice-command. The MusicCast components and the Alexa-enabled devices must be on the same network.

IR Remote: The Yamaha R-N303 comes with an IR remote control for wireless operation of the network stereo receiver

Convenience Features

Front-Panel Display: The R-N303 network receiver features a front-panel display to indicate audio settings, source input, station identification, and song/artist information. You can adjust the brightness of the front-panel display. This unit does not offer an on-screen display.

Gapless Playback: Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way it was meant to be heard. Compatible with WAV, FLAC, AIFF, and ALAC music files via DLNA.

ECO Mode: When the ECO Mode is enabled, you can reduce the receiver' power consumption by keeping the maximum volume, maximum output power, and front display's brightness low. ECO mode reduces power consumption by approximately 20%.

MusicCast is an app that connects wireless speakers together, and you can control them from your smartphone. The only wired speakers that you would have would be connected directly to your stereo receiver. The MuicCast app can control the volume to the wired speakers. I think that answers your question. I really enjoy using the system.

No. The Bluetooth is for input to the receiver not output. However it part of Yamaha's Musicast family and you can sent music via WiFi to other powered speakers or amplifiers in that family.
[ Harry  Aug 06, 2019 ]
A
Using the MusicCast app, I am able to pump audio to both my hard wired Klipsch bookshelf speakers connected to the R-N303, plus as many *MusicCast* enabled wireless speakers as I want via bluetooth. (You still need a wifi connections for all of this to work). I have not tried this with any blue tooth speakers that are not MusicCast enabled. I would think if they are just standard bluetooth, you'd have an either/or situation. We have been slowly upgrading all of our wireless speakers to Yamahas (including our soundbard) so we can take full advantage of the MusicCast technology. It's really sweet. We have five wireless speakers plus our soundbar throughout our house and can mix and match any speaker with another by linking them. We can even pump audio from our old Nakamichi tape desk, Denon turntable and SONY CD player through the R-N303 to the MusicCast enabled speakers with either wifi or blue tooth. Hope this helps.

Can i hook up a amp to this r-n303?
[ Tommy  Jul 20, 2019 ]

A
No. The R-N 303 is a receiver, which is to say, an integrated amplifier with a built in FM tuner. A review of the instruction manual, which is available on the Crutchfield web site, reveals no mention about pairing it up with an auxiliary amplifier. If you now have a power amplifier, the components you would likely want to pair it with are a standalone pre-amplifier and a standalone tuner. You'll find both on the Crutchfield web site. The last time I looked at tuners on Crutchfield, quite a while ago, I used Crutchfield's search engine.

Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.

Q
Can I connect 16 ohms speakers to Zone A and and 8 ohms speakers to Zone B, without worrying while playing to both zones at the same time?
[ Raul  Dec 06, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Since speaker impedance is measured in ohms, Thevenin's theorem (8*16)/(8+16) = 5.333 ohms - not recommended. The key is to watch your heat because the manual isn't clear on the North American model.

Q
Does this / will this product support AirPlay 2?
[ jdsmeak  Dec 06, 2017 ]

A
The latest information we received from Yamaha indicates the R-N303 receiver only supports the original Apple AirPlay (or "AirPlay 1") technology at this time. Given that AirPlay 2 was just recently announced by Apple, it's not certain whether "AirPlay 1" components can be updated to support AirPlay 2 features. As soon as we have more information in that regard, we will be sure to update our website accordingly. If you'd like to discuss further, please feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!

Q
Is there a way to hook up an IPOD Classic to this receiver? Also, can you use most any bluetooth (wireless) speaker or must you purchase a MusicCast speaker to be compatible?

You use a 3.5mm to RCA audio cable to connect any iPod to this receiver. Here are those cables: https://www.crutchfield.com/g_344750/3-5mm-Audio-Cables.html?tp=35006#&nvpair=FFType|Mini to RCA Also, you can use the Bluetooth in this receiver to transmit audio to any Bluetooth speaker.

Q
Once this unit is connected to your home network, can you stream Pandora or SiriusXM directly from the unit, or does it require your phone or another external device to stream music?
[ Matt E.  Oct 28, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
You'll use the Yamaha MusicCast App to control the streaming services but the receiver itself streams them through your home network and broadband internet service; not through your phone. I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan

You can connect a powered subwoofer that has speaker level inputs. We have a way to filter down to just the models that have that type of inputs (I tried to create a link with it, but the filter choice didn't stay selected). Here are the subwoofers we carry with the filter list so you can choose to see the ones with speaker level inputs: https://www.crutchfield.com/g_12300/Powered-Subwoofers.html#&clearAll My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
