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.
Summary: Listening to this, I felt like I was floating in space, untethered to the ground. The sound was was crisp, light and airy and very pleasant but unfortunately, there was no bottom beneath the space. An acoustic bass sounded more like an acoustic guitar, with little body to the sound.
Summary: I tried this unit with Paradigm mini monitor speakers and then with Pioneer FS52's. The highs and mids are very clear, but no low end. It simply doesn't produce bass, even with the bass control set to the max. I think Yamaha just assumes you will be using a subwoofer with this unit?
Summary: This product is great. The sub out is a very nice feature. All in All the best stereo/amp I have owned. The highs and minds are clear and detailed without being to hi or shrill. The bass is not nearly as strong as some of the other stereos I have had in the past but it doesn't need to be if you have...
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.
Summary: Price considered this is a fantastic amp. I bought it to power my golden ear aon2's and it does a good job. If you are trying to build a budget stereo system built around sound quality then definitely give this product a look.
