The R-S700 offers 100 watts per channel output, while the R-S500 delivers 75 watts per channel output, and the R-S300 provides 50 watts per channel output. As for the A-S500 integrated amp, it produces 85 watts per channel output. The matching tuner, the T-S500, comes with Yamaha's Pure Direct technology, which is designed to let the signal travel the shortest possible route.

Compatible with Yamaha's optional YDS-12 wired, and YID-W10 wireless docks, the new receivers and integrated amplifier can deliver sound from iPods and iPhones by leveraging the docks' independent power supplies, resulting in a reportedly signal-to-noise ration. The units also utilize a balanced system to receive the signal from the iPod/iPhone. In addition, the receivers feature compatibility with Yamaha's YBA-10 Bluetooth wireless audio receiver, providing more audio input flexibility.

The R-S700 and R-S500 integrated receivers feature Yamaha's Zone 2 technology, allowing for access and control from multiple rooms.
