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: 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: 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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: bought this amplifier based on it's favourable review in What Hifi? to replace my ageing Denon PMA 720 a 90 wpc monster of an amp which has served me well for nearly thirty years until it finally gave up the fight for life a couple of months ago.
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.
