Strength:

50 watts per channel is plenty of power to fill a medium den/tv room (12x24) with warm,clean,crisp sound. I live in a quiet bedroom community in south Jersey,U.S.A. My wife says it's "too loud" when I turn the volume up to half way (we all know it's not). Perfect FM reception from both Atlantic City and Philadelphia. You can fine tune your "preferred sound" by using the variable loudness control which I love. The unit runs day and night and yet feels room temperature to the touch. I play it thru a pair of 4 ohm Sony 6x9 4 way car speakers (yes automobile speakers!) that I built bookshelf boxes for (1.3 cu ft. sealed golden rectangle). There's an impedance switch in the rear for 4 or 8 ohm applications, and A or B or A+B speaker switches on the front panel. Also in the rear you can connect a Phono w/ground, CD, 2 separate Tape/Record players, and an auxiliary line along with a subwoofer jack. For me the true test of a set-up is DO YOU LISTEN TO IT and as stated I play it all the time and enjoy all genres. The RS-300 has been discontinued but if you can find one buy it, I gave it 5 stars.

Weakness:

Turning the loudness knob towards flat INCREASES the volume. You must LOWER the volume significantly before utilizing the Pure Direct button, depressing this button will override the loudness function, and INCREASE the volume instantly, you could damage your speakers. Also the rear speaker jacks do not accept dual banana plugs, you may use singles or bare wire.

The Yamaha R-S300 is a very old school but a very good performing receiver. By "old school", I mean that more functions can be done at the receiver instead of via the remote. Examples? 1) You cannot scan for radio stations with the remote. That has to be done at the receiver. However, the remote can control radio stations stored in user preset memory. 2) If you shut off the receiver with the remote, it only goes into stand-by. If you push the power switch on the receiver, the receiver completely shuts off. 3) When plugging in headphones, the speakers say on until you manually shut off the speakers at the receiver. DO NOT let this old school functionality turn you away, because such operation puts you in greater control and makes for fewer things to go wrong. If you lose the remote or something goes wrong with it, you can still operate the receiver flawlessly. The Yamaha R-S300 is a very good sounding receiver and just plain easy to operate. Don't let the 50 watts per channel rating turn you away. It is very adequate power for all but the most power hungry speakers.
