The new line sports today's features and yesterday's look.

If you've been in the home theater game for a while, or if you've got a penchant for things with a bit of an old-school vibe, you may want to check out the latest line of receivers from Yamaha.

"Along with muscular vintage designs reminiscent of earlier, highly regarded Yamaha stereo receivers, amps and tuners," says Tom Summers, president of Yamaha, "these systems provide total sonic purity and refinements—such as a special power supply for the clearest sound from iPods, multi-zone capabilities, Yamaha ToP-ART circuitry and the latest amplifier designs."

The R-S700, 500 and 300 offer outputs of 100 watts per channel, 75 watts and 30 watts respectively. They've got the classic look and are made to pair up well with the A-S500 integrated amplifier and the T-S500 tuner.

Pricing for receivers starts at $329, while the tuner will run $299 and the amp $449.
