Enjoy the entire spectrum of all your favourite modern music sources

The R-N500 is a receiver and network audio player in a single unit. You can use it to easily play audio sources downloaded from the Internet and stored on a PC or NAS system. 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.
*Available via future firmware update. Service availability depends on regions.

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.

Eco Mode and Auto Power Standby

The R-N500 has an ECO mode that reduces power consumption by about 20%*, and an Auto power standby function that you can set to turn the power off after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours. 
*Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).

Other Notable Features

• Terminal for a Subwoofer
• Phono MM terminal for vinyl playback
• Speaker selector and speaker terminals for two systems
• Screw-type speaker terminals
• 40 station FM/AM preset tuning

Up to 90 Day Returns!

Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.


How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:


This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.

9am to 6pm Mon-Fri, 9am to 5.30pm Sat.
