The Receiver itself pairs nicely with my 70's NS-690 Yamaha speakers, following an NS-7750 and a CR-800 that retired because of the notorious virtually-unrepairable mode selector switch.
UPs: Sound is very clear and powerful (worthy of 5 Stars). In other words, just what you would expect & demand from Yamaha,
The optical Audio input link provided is both rare and essential to my home A/V setup, which is stereo only. All ROKU & DVD A/V streams go into the TV via HDMI cables, and the R-N303BL amps all sound coming from the TV via the optical cable (LG TV to R-N303BL). TV speakers are kept OFF. I believe "lightspeed" digital transfer of TV Audio to the R-N303BL via optical cable is necessary for proper sync of the Audio with the Video portions of TV programs (e.g., speech in perfect sync with lip movements, etc).
DOWNs: The R-N303BL panel display is minimal, both in content, size, and brightness. I have 20/25 vision yet cannot read it sitting 15 feet away. Front panel controls are also minimal. The remote has 37 small buttons, none numeric, all labeled with even smaller print. An additional 5-button bulls-eye directional control is centered among them. Managing the AM/FM tuners without a tuning knob on the panel, or numeric controls of any kind anywhere is a super pain. Only worthy of 3 Stars here.
SMARTs: Only 2 Stars here due because of the high futz factor during setup (DO NOT send a R-N303BL to your grandma 500 miles away). Setup of Wi-Fi & Bluetooth functions for the R-N303BL was slow & awkward and definitely fell into the reluctant-to-work category.
Setup of the MusicCast app (free for my LG Android smart phone) was equally annoying, but in the end it all came together. So much so that the R-N303BL apparently was aware (via its Wi-Fi & internet connectivity) that it needed a firmware update. The clever R-N303BL so informed the MusicCast phone app, which in turn apprised me of its need on the app display. Upon my approval, MusicCast automatically engaged the software download, installation, and re-boot of the R-N303BL, all flawlessly and hands-free, in about 20 minutes. I was amazed.
MUSICCAST: 4 Stars. The app is free & full featured. It claims to be able to control wireless speakers (must be MusicCast-capable) in multiple rooms (via the R-N303BL which feeds them audio streams via local Wi-Fi links). I did not test this feature, but I expect setting up the remote speaker links would be equally futz-ful.
MusicCast does very well in organizing over-air AM/FM, and on-phone audio. Ditto Internet streaming radio such as Pandora. For superior frequency response, such streams go directly to the R-N303BL via Internet & Wi-Fi, not through the phones Bluetooth. MusicCast allows many custom audio feeds such as Favorites, Recent, Play Lists etc.
Bottom line is 4 Stars overall. I would buy the R-N303BL again.
After several weeks of trying, I have finally gotten Spotify Connect to work over my WAN. Apparently my router was blocking access from Spotify to the Receiver somehow. This was finally resolved when I connected the receiver directly to the LAN and got access to Spotify Connect. Once the LAN connection was made, the WAN connection started working.
YAMAHA says this shouldn't be necessary but it's what resolved my issue.
