Yamaha A-S1000

What Hi-Fi?
31 October 2010
  • Excerpt: There's something reassuringly old-school about the Yamaha A-S1000 amplifier, and this rather big – almost 14cm tall – and heavy – 22kg – amplifier is beautifully built. And so it should be: it's closely related to the £1495 A-S2000, principally lacking only that model's fully balanced design. Only the preamplifier has been simplified, and even here there's a triple parallel design for volume and tone, and a high-quality moving coil/moving magnet phono stage.
  • Pros: Built like a tank, retro styling with a modern twist, effortless sound
  • Cons: May be too rich and smooth-sounding for some tastes
