Summary: Brilliant amp, good looking, great sound, I was in musical heaven for a whole 3 hours, until the unit started to get unnaturly hot, emit a loud hum that was parasiting the right channel and finally shut down (probably before getting too hot and going up in flames...) Too bad. Let's hope the second one holds a little bit longer... Maybe a whole day???
Summary: I,M WRITING A REVIEW ABOUT THE YAMAHA AS500 AMPLIFIER, WHICH IS A VERY LOW QUALITY AMP THAT I DISCOVERED AFTER HAVING RECEIVING IT AND HASTILY WENT ABOUT RETURN AND REFUND. THIS WAS CARRIED OUT VERY EFFICIENTLY. MY ADVICE IS SAVE UP A BIT MORE AND GET SOMETHING WORTH BUYING. THE BASS THE TRBLE AND THE HIGH RANGE WERE ALL VERY LOW QUALITY.
