Yamaha T-D500 DAB+ Digital Radio Tuner


The T-D500 is Yamaha’s first high-performance component DAB+ digital radio tuner. Adopting the same brushed aluminium design as Yamaha’s new hi-fi components, the T-D500 delivers digital radio sound and is designed to fit discreetly into any Yamaha audio setup.

  • The T-D500 offers you the latest digital radio stations from around Australia. Not only does digital radio offer you new stations such as NovaNation, Koffee, and Radar, but your old favourites will have similar sound quality to that of a CD.

    • DAB (Band III and L-Band), DAB+, FM and AM
    • 40-station DAB/DAB+, 30-station FM and 30-station AM preset tuning
    • Auto FM/AM station memory
    • 2-line, 16-character (5x7 dot matrix) display
    • Compact remote unit
    • Design matches Yamaha HiFi components


    Standing at the same width and overall design as Yamaha AV and Hi-Fi components, the T-D500 is designed to fit discreetly into your audio setup. Further evidence that sound should be heard and not seen.

    Although the T-D500 comes with a slimline remote control it can actually be controlled by any Yamaha amplifier remote control that you might be pairing it with. This allows for easier operation when paired with other Yamaha hi-fi components.

    Finding radio stations manually is a thing of the past with the T-D500. With digital radio you can browse all your stations alphabetically, store them into your favourite preset, and find them again with the press of a button.

    For those that still want to access AM/FM stations, the T-D500 also supports both these formats.
