Bargain integrated sounds great!

Doctor Mike, Amazon
8 June 2014
  • Summary: Warm sound with good power that can drive most speakers with ease. Has a sound you can enjoy for hours and sounds as good or better as similar priced Cambridege Audio, Marantz and NAD integrated amps I own at a lower price as discounted on Amazon. Minor downside is attached power cord.

Meh. Not an upgrade from vintage.

  • Summary: I was excited to get this after reading the reviews and feedback about the Yamaha. Honestly, I was going to replace my 1978 Sansui 9090 with this because of the sub output and hoping it would somehow improve my listening experience.

Wonderful amp but crap Amazon policies

Glen Collier, Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought the Yamaha A-S500 amp many months ago and had to get an AVR for it because it was 120 volts. I live in the Philippines which has 240 volts. I have been very impressed with ir. I love the loudness control, the overall power and a subwoofer output. I have absolutely no complaints.

  • Summary: I usually am too lazy to write reviews but this amplifier is so awesome that I had to come to amazon to write a first day review. Ok, here is the deal. If you buy this amp, I guarantee that you will upset your neighbors.

FINALLY FOUND A DECENT STEREO AMP FOR THE MONEY

billiam, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I BOUGHT A ONKYO STEREO NETWORK AMP RECENTLY, AND IT DIED IN 20 MINUTES.. PROBABLY THE BEST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN. THEN I BOUGHT THE YAMAHA... NOTHING FANCY - JUST CLEAN CLEAR STEREO POWER THAT IS CAPABLE OF PROVIDING REALLY GOOD BASS WITHOUT A SUBWOOFER.

Good

Ravi, Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this amp after reading reviews here. This amp sounds very rich in sound. I should admit I have not tried any other amps. The only thing I did not like is the awkward looking remote control. It does not even match the color and is cut in a weird shape and often I confuse head for tail.

First class series at reasonable prices.

Earthling... "Visiting", Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: This series, that includes amplifiers, receivers and a tuner is "Performance Engineered". The comments about the knobs and buttons are understandable, however, the evaluation can be considered as subjective. While every feature and the knobs, etc.

Amazon shipped a returned reciever

Dufus, Amazon
16 October 2011
  • Summary: I would like to review this product I paid so much for, but I have no idea. Amazon shipped me a returned, badly malfunctioning unit. And if you think this won't happen to you, I'm one of those folks that pays Amazon 79$ annually for PRIME membership. And what is their response when you complain.
