Like Sandra Bullock in Gravity

Ed P, Amazon

  • 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. Other reviewers said it took about a week to "burn in" and for the sound to improve but I was skeptical about that.

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. Guys, if you have an older vintage piece of equipment like my Sansui, the answer is no. I am not sure how I became so interested in going to an integrated amp, but it was a mistake all the way around.

Amazon shipped a returned reciever

Dufus, Amazon

  • 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. Paraphrased: Gee, we're sorry. We just don't feel like speeding up resolution. JnR has this and others for the same price.

Klang entsprach nicht meinen Erwartungen

Rob Hubbard, Amazon
22 October 2013
  • Summary: Ich kann diesen Verstärker leider nicht empfehlen. Aufgrund der guten Tests und der vielen positiven Stimmen, habe ich mir dieses Gerät zugelegt. Ich finde den Verstärker äußerlich sehr gelungen, auch die Verarbeitung ist ordentlich (2 Sterne). Leider hat mich der Klang (über Tannoy Studio Monitore) nicht überzeugt. Der Sound ist sehr weich und undefiniert, im Mittenbereich unpräzise und das Stereo Klangbild schwammig.

Absolut überbewertet

  • Summary: Aufgrund eines Defekts am Potentiometer meines Akai AM-49 Verstärkers habe ich mir den Yamaha A S-500 Vollverstärker geleistet! Grund warum die Entscheidung auf den Verstärker von Yamaha fiel waren die durchwegs guten Bewertungen, sei es nun in diversenen Fachzeitschriften sowie auch in Foren bzw Kundenbewertungen hier bei Amazon!
