Reciever Reviewed: (
September 13, 1985  By Rich Warren)

Yamaha created quite a stir just over a decade ago when it introduced its first receivers to the American market. The name was no stranger here, Yamaha was already known for motorcycles and musical instruments. Those first receivers impressed with their handsome appearance and no-nonsense, high performance.

After garnering rave reviews and healthy sales the company let success go to its corporate head. After a few years its receivers sacrificed bread for circuses with every knob, button and feature possible crammed onto the front panel. While JVC impresses with receivers that look like Las Vegas, the excess of features betrayed Yamaha`s image.

This year Yamaha regained its initial direction with a line of slimmed down, no-nonsense, high performance receivers. The R-7 provides a perfect example of this renewed direction. The black front panel features an ample yet not excessive number of knobs, buttons and touch plate switches. The display with red light emitting diodes for station frequency and status indicators and green LEDs for signal strength stands out clearly without being gaudy.

A usefully huge volume control knob occupies the right end of the front panel. After all, what`s the most frequently used control on a receiver after the power switch? Yamaha should have applied the same philosophy to the tiny tuning bar, that depending upon which side of it you push, scans the dial up and down.

The designers probably assumed with 16 presets for AM and FM (8 keys plus a shift key) you probably won`t use the manual tuning often. With the wireless remote control you might never touch it except for the initial set-up.

A couple of Yamaha traditions remain on the R-7. A continuously variable

``loudness`` control more accurately compensates for human hearing losses at the ends of the frequency spectrum at low volumes than the fixed compensation found on most receivers. Also included is a feature originally designed for Yamaha`s expensive separate tuners, a circuit that automatically monitors FM signal quality and switches between the distant (dx) and local modes. The circuit finds the best choice between lowest distortion and best reception, not always the same thing. You may also choose manually.

Confusingly, next to this ``receiving mode`` switch is the ``tuning mode`` switch. The latter selects between stereo and mono, while also changing whether the tuning key scans from station to station automatically or manually.

This receiver incorporates an extra stage of preamplification for moving coil cartridges, but no input capacitance adjustment for optimizing the more common moving magnet cartridges. Like many receivers, the R-7 includes a separate tape switching control so that you may listen to one source while recording another. A thoughtful bonus is a removable AM loop antenna. The option of placing it a distance from the receiver at any desired angle dramatically improves AM reception.

The 65 watt per channel (measured at the FTC standard) R-7 provides exemplary performance for its $469. The tuner section grabs stations like a center fielder catching long fly balls. Yet it does so with a minimum of noise, an 81 decibel signal to noise ratio in stereo to be precise. Most receivers range from 70 to 80 dB. The amplifier drives even large, inefficient speakers with a minimum of distortion.
