Yamaha A-S2000

What Hi-Fi?
16 July 2010
  • Summary: A big, powerful, attractive amp, but the overly relaxed attitude puts it behind similarly priced rivals
  • Pros: Lovely design and build, Tone and balance controls, Smooth, rich sound
  • Cons: An overly relaxed sound that never really engages the listener

  • Excerpt: The A-S2000 puts Yamaha squarely back into high-end audio territory. It’s a matter of no small concern to me that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to buy a two-channel amplifier bearing the name of a major multinational manufacturer yet it’s equally highly satisfying to find that there are several major multinational manufacturers still building two-channel audio amplifiers. And if this sounds contradictory, it is.

  • Summary: Exacting build quality and retro styling make the A-S2000 feel like a vintage model from the 1970s. Everything internal is nice and modern, however, resulting in a clean analytical sound that's able to be pushed to incredibly (and we mean incredibly) loud volumes without the slightest hint of distortion. Just don't try to move it around without a pal.
  • Pros: Beautiful retro styling, powerful, versatile, dedicated headphone amp
  • Cons: Heavy enough to destroy an A/V rack (but that's a good thing, right?)

  • Excerpt: Feine Birke ziert die neue Stereo-Anlage von Yamaha. Ist das nur teures Blendwerk oder hält die Technik, was die noblen Fassaden im 70er-Jahre-Look versprechen? Lesen Sie im Test, warum der Verstärker „A-S2000“ so begeisterte und mit dem CD-Spieler „CD-S2000“ zur Höchstform auflief – und wie gut die Boxen „Soavo-2“ zum Ensemble passen.
