The Yamaha CRX-N470 CD Receiver uses Yamaha’s proprietary high-performance digital amplification technology to deliver realistic, lossless playback of audio content from a network, USB drive or CD. Its circuit design fully inherits the Yamaha Hi-Fi concept, where the length of the signal path is minimized and interference in the form of signal overlap is completely eliminated. This enhances the sound quality of a variety of audio sources, from music CDs to high-resolution files.

Under the hood of the Yamaha CRX-N470 CD receiver there are separate printed circuit boards for signal processing paths from the CD/DAC and network audio. The switching power supply, processor and amplifier are galvanically isolated, which radically reduces the level of mutual interference and interference. The amplifier’s power supply and output filter contain high-quality components, selected, according to the developers, after many hours of listening.


According to the passport, the digital amplification path provides 2×22 at an eight-ohm load, which is quite enough for sounding standard residential premises. But the functionality of the microsystem is excellent. High-resolution files are read (up to FLAC and WAV 24/192, but not DSD), including from a computer or NAS server via Ethernet and Wi-Fi. You can connect the microsystem to the World Wide Web: the vTuner service will provide access to thousands of radio stations. AirPlay technology support allows you to receive streaming audio wirelessly from iOS devices.


The sound quality of compressed audio files is enhanced by Music Enhancer, a technology for restoring information lost as a result of compression. Thanks to the alarm function, you will wake up to your favorite melody or the voice of your favorite radio presenter. There is also a Sleep timer, as well as an environmentally friendly Standby mode, in which power consumption is reduced to 0.5 W.


MusicCast uses a highly efficient wireless audio network that allows digital music files from your smartphone, PC, or network storage to be streamed to other MusicCast devices in your home. You can also stream audio content from Bluetooth-connected smartphones or tablets to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.


MusicCast-compatible devices can be used together or separately. They are managed using a single simple, fast and intuitive application. You can use a soundbar, wireless audio systems, AV receiver, HiFi components in any combination and expand your MusicCast system over time. Yamaha’s new MusicCast system allows you to transfer any music to any place convenient for you.


The Yamaha CRX-N470 CD Receiver features the latest Bluetooth technology, making wireless operation more convenient than ever before. You can stream music from the receiver to Bluetooth-enabled headphones for private listening or to Bluetooth-enabled speakers. You can listen to all music sources from your smartphone using a wireless connection via Bluetooth or AirPlay technology. You can play music from music apps, radio apps, or video hosting services like YouTube™.
