Now that Yamaha amp/tuner is equipped with bluetooth.
My expectations for it are quite simple: decent range and decent sound. This one works flawlessly.
I never try any other bt receivers, therefore I cannot make any comparisons at this time.
Update: Quite often somebody ask a question whether this one works on a specific Yamaha Amp. I'll try to give out more information here.
1, It comes with one digital coaxial cable for output and one usb cable for power, therefore it will work on any amp with a digital coaxial input. An amp with a usb port can be more convenient since there is no more equipment required, otherwise you'll need to get a usb power port for it.
2, It streams in 2-channel stereo sound from the audio suorce. Bluetooth does not support any more channel of sound, ie 5.1.
3, Any sound (like a movie or youtube, etc) played by a paired smart phone or tablet will be played on amp system, with great audio quality.
I found it is most useful while you play music with smart phone or i-pad and the like. I've been playing Amazon prime music a lot. Pandora sounds great as well.
As to anyone who asks a specific model of amp if it works, I would say yes to any amp that takes digital coaxial input. There's a way for an ancient model that takes only RCA input or 3.5mm input check this: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_7_11?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=digital+coaxial+to+rca&sprefix=digital+coa%2Caps%2C239, however I personally don't think it worth to try-upgrading to a newer system might be a better choice.
Yamaha YBA-11 is better choice in term of Digital music,this receiver is oustanding the out put range is awesome its go thru wall my home office is up stair and my Home Theatre is down stair in 3000 quare foot home not even a glitz or hit-cup,even my phone in the back yard too.
That being said, I would recommend this product for those who's wanted better sound and good range,also making sure that your Receiver/Pre amp must have Coaxial input to get this CD sound quality , my Pre Amp Sample Frequency shown at 44.khz thats 16 Bits CD quality, using samsung S3 phone, if your receiver doesn't have Coaxial Digital input but have Optical input then look for Bluetooth Receiver that offer Optical out-put, unfortunately this Yamaha does not offer Optical, remember do not buy the one that only offer Analog out put only,the difference is only 10.00
If I could say anything negative, I'd wish the device was a bit heavier, or included a rubber base or velcro. Even the weight of the included cables can pull it down. I also am not a fan of the proprietary power cable. Good luck if one were to lose it. This device was obviously designed for an amp like mine as I have a USB port (only for power) right next to the coax input. While great for me, if your receiver lacks such a port, it would require the additional purchase of a USB power adapter (such as whats included with a phone charger) pretty annoying for the price given that competing models usually throw this in.
To sum it up, works as advertised, simple to setup, great sound, reasonably good looking if not a bit on the lightweight side. Strongly recommended and I'll probably be purchasing another for my other sound system.
