Yamaha 'Natural Sound' concept
The Yamaha RN602 directly benefits from Yamaha's ToP-ART and ART construction, which ensures that left and right channels are perfectly symmetrical throughout the design and signal paths as short as possible. This meticulous attention to detail offers the highest precision and lowest distortion possible.
Complementing this circuit design is ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) construction. Featuring a reinforced casing and damped base support to reduce mechanical vibration, it all helps improve the precision and detail of the sound. For the ultimate in audio purity, the Pure Direct switch bypasses the tone and balance controls for an even more detailed, true-to-life sound quality.
Compatible with High Resolution music files
The Yamaha RN602 makes a superb choice for listening to your High Resolution music files. It's compatible with WAV/FLAC 192kHz/24-bit, Apple Lossless 96kHz/24-bit, DSD 5.6MHz and even the new AIFF 192kHz/24-bit formats. Using a built-in BurrBrown 192kHz/24-bit DAC, the sound is sensationally detailed.
MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RN602 is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast you can control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or tablet. Play the same music on all the components or split the sound into different zones for different moods in each room; the choice is yours. The MusicCast CONTROLLER app also lets you operate the speaker and change settings quickly and easily.
Wi-Fi with Spotify and AirPlay
Connect via Ethernet or wi-fi to your home network and gain access to a whole new world of entertainment. From here you'll be able to access a massive range of Internet radio stations plus music services such as the hugely popular Spotify and Naspter. Also standard is AirPlay, making it easier than ever to stream from your Apple iOS devices.

With a Bluetooth receiver built in, it's easy to enjoy your music from other devices. Pair with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC and wirelessly stream all your favourite music. With the possibility of streaming music services, such as Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, as well as your own music library, you get access to near unlimited music!
Comprehensive connectivity including phono stage and USB
The RN602 comes with a built-in MM (Moving Magnet) phono stage for your turntable. At the front of the unit there's a USB interface, making this receiver ideal for connecting up USB mass storage devices and playing back your stored music files. A wide range of analogue RCA phono inputs are also supplied for sources such as tape decks or CD players.
Direct digital connections for your TV, CD and other digital sources
As well as a USB interface, the RN602 also has twin optical and coaxial digital inputs linked to its high spec DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). This lets you link up a wide variety of digital sources, including compatible TVs, CD and DVD players.
Wharfedale Diamond 230 Floorstanding Speakers
The Diamond 230 2.5 way floor standing speakers deliver the usual high standard of both looks and performance expected from Wharfedale.
With the What HiFi? 2014 Award Winning Diamond 220 Booksehlf speakers as a baseline, we were expecting big things from the 230's and we haven't been disappointed. Using the same driver and tweeter technology as their smaller sibling, but with an extra drive unit and the added cubic capacity of a floorstander, the Diamond 230' have the same sweet top-end, but that extra punch in the lower frequency, without sacrificing detail.
The bass port is positioned at the foot of the speaker, between the cabinet and the plinth on which it sits. Using the 'Slot Loaded Distributed Port' allows for a smoother transition between the air pressure within the unit and the air pressure externally, giving a greater scope for room positioning.
Available in 4 finishes: Blackwood, Rosewood Quilted, Walnut Pearl and White.
