Yamaha A-S500 Stereo Integrated Amplifier

About.com
26 April 2013
  • Summary: Feeding audiophile tastes can be a challenge but with the A-S500, it doesn't require a limitless budget. The A-S500 may not rise to the level of separate components, but it offers performance and features geared toward music lovers and is a step up from stereo receivers in a similar class. When combined with a pair of moderately priced speakers and a source (phono, CD or DVD) it can easily serve the needs and wants of a serious music listener without breaking the bank.

  • Excerpt: The sound is clear dynamic is a good amp, but only criticism bothers me a bit anyway, its a bit shiny / metallic voice you can hear some good and distorts rendering. Too bad because otherwise it would be perfect. We read here and there it is neutral and does not affect the sound and that is why I bought it but for me it is not true. <br ...

  • Summary: Nie do końca, bo jednak latka lecą, a gusta się zmieniły. A-S500 jest bardziej „współczesny”. Słychać większą kulturę i równowagę rejestrów. Postęp techniczny powoduje, że Yamaha nie stoi z boku ani nie reanimuje muzealnych eksponatów. „Pięćsetka” to uniwersalny, dopracowany wzmacniacz, który… zachowuje rys dawnych lat nie tylko we wzornictwie. I za to można go pokochać. Na marginesie: polecam połączenie ze srebrną serią Monitor Audio. Czysta synergia.

"un peu brillant" - patpol

20 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Le son est clair dynamique c'est un bon ampli, seul reproche mais qui me gène un peu tout de même, son un peu brillant/métallique sur certaines voix cela s'entend bien et dénature le rendu. Dommage car sinon il serait parfait. On lit ici ou là qu'il est neutre et ne modifie en rien le son et c'est pour cela que je l'ai acheté mais pour m...

Yamaha A-S500: "A" come amplificatore

gadget.wired.it
28 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Non manca la funzione Pure Direct, apprezzatissima dagli audiofili perché "accorcia" il percorso tra i circuiti interni per offrire un suono diretto ai terminali placcati in oro, ai quali sono collegati i nostri speaker. Speaker che l'AS-500, agile com'è, non ha avuto alcuna difficoltà a pilotare. Tra gli integrati, per concludere, lo Yamaha svetta come un amplificatore dall'ottima resa sonora, solido e con pochissimi rivali sotto i 500 euro.

  • Excerpt: Yamahas senaste tillskott är en av testets billigaste. För lite drygt femtusen kronor är A-S500 en mycket kompetent förstärkare.
