Excellent amplifier, clean and detailed sound.

Rafael "RaFael", Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this Yamaha A-S1000 never before heard an amplifier, so I read many reviews and opinions from people who bought and decided by Yamaha. I use a tower of RX6 Monitor Audio, and offers 105w rms in 6 ohms. A Player Onkyo, and other Pioneer. The sound is clean, clear and detailed, not strident like some people say, is very balanced and dynamic. I used cables from Van den Hul, and were excellent. Optimal buying this Yamaha, and I hear pop and rock and sound is great.

Landmark audiophile quality with superb attention to detail and intuitive operation

  • Summary: The beauty of this integrated amplifier extends across multiple dimensions. Physically the design is elegant, with apparent interest in ease of operation core in the mind of the designers. It weighs in at a hefty 48 pounds which is indicative of the massive powerplant enclosed in its elegant casing. Upon setting this up for the first time in my home and playing the first songs a grin of total exuberance came across my face--the sound was an audio experience to behold.

  • Summary: The beauty of this integrated amplifier extends across multiple dimensions. Physically the design is elegant, with apparent interest in ease of operation core in the mind of the designers. It weighs in at a hefty 48 pounds which is indicative of the massive transformers enclosed in its elegant casing. Upon setting this up for the first time in my home and playing the first songs a grin of total exuberance came across my face-the sound was an audio experience to behold.
  • Pros: High performance, audiophile quality, completely ergonomic, looks, feels and works as if no expense was spared.
  • Cons: Beware it is about 3 inches deeper than most other units and may be tough to fit into some cabinets.

Just stereo

Bruce Jenkins, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: For all of us tired of trying to use AV amplifiers for music,this is a great amp for a reasonable price. Hook up and controls are straight forward and ready for phono and subwoofer with no extra eqipment . Maybe it could use a midrange control,but so far I don't miss it. Audiophiles probably will look elsewhere, but it has plenty of power for Polk and Totem shelf speakers. Range is broad, and the high end is crisp.

User Review

LDTM a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review
5 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this amplifier as the heart of 2.0 hi-fi kit for our listening room in Japan. I've also bought the CD-S1000 and matched them with Monitor Audio's GS20 floor standing speakers (which are absolutely sublime). I had the opportunity to audition this amplifier along with about 30 - 40 other units at one location so narrowing down the list did take some time.

Yamaha Integrated Amp A S1000

MarcM, Crutchfield
5 April 2010
  • Summary: Excellent build quality and superb sound. Rivals all of my older 70's and 80's high quality amps/receivers in side by side comparisons. This amp was meant to replace my aging Yamaha 2020 Receiver for a satellite system, but I was so impressed that I moved it to my main system and enjoy it every day. I am very pleased with the unit in every way. Nice to see that Yamaha has returned to offering a higher end product line.
  • Pros: High quality, excellent build, good fit and finish. Plenty of power
  • Cons: Would have preferred silver face, but it appears to no longer be available.

Erstaunlich guter Verstärker

  • Summary: Ich habe zuvor einen Yamaha R-S 700 über 6 Monate testen können. Ich besitze zwei Quadral M4 Platinum und einen Quadral Qube 8 (Raumgröße ca. 40m2). Klanglich differenziert sich der Yamaha A-S 1000 gegenüber dem R-S 700 wie folgt (z. T. subjektiv): - wahrnehmbar feinere Klangwiedergabe (entscheidend hier der Signalgeber!
