Review of the Yamaha CRX-N470D Network CD Receiver By What Hi-Fi
T he Yamaha CRX-N470D Network CD Receiver, a just add speakers small all in one system, is the subject of this review by What Hi-Fi. £350 was the review price and 4 stars the verdict.

■ Strong points for the Yamaha CRX-N470D were

Plenty of detail and a warm, easy to listen to balance -
Times well with decent musical understanding - MusicCast expands horizons of what a mini-system is capable of.

■ Weak points though were :-

Bettered by the class leader in terms of dynamics and organisation.

What Hi-Fi concludes on the Yamaha CRX-N470D with "We wouldn’t give too much consideration to the price difference – you can take home Denon’s matching speakers for the same price as the CRX-N470D – because it’s somewhat offset by Yamaha’s bonus functions.

In an era of multi-room, the benefit of MusicCast cannot be overlooked. But the sonic benefits of the D-M40DAB marginally outweigh those of its rival.

Regardless, the CRX-N470D is a particularly adept performer with a plethora of features that offers foundation for a hi-fi system with plenty of scope to grow."
