Good

Ravi, Amazon

  • 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: 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.

Great starter amplifier for beginners

  • Summary: Don't really have anything to compare this to as I'm new to the whole amplifier game. That said, this amp has been a godsend for me in terms of the sheer quality of sound it's pumping through my speakers with my TV, PS4 and tablet connected. Loud too. So loud!

smooth but clear

  • Summary: You can enjoy music for hours without fatigue with this amp. The detail is not up with the very best, but only loses out to amps well outside it's price range. A few times, I have had to switch off and then on again to get any sound at all!

Very good value for money

Mr P D Hyde, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: This replaced an 11 year old Sony amplifier and I immediately noticed an improvement in the sound produced particularly by the second set of speakers in the kitchen. Some people have commented on a poor bass response but this has not been my experience and I am very satisfied with the overall sound.

As Expected

A McGregor, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: This amp is exactly what I needed for my system and I appreciate Yamaha quality. What I didn't like and still don't understand is the price difference between the U.S. and Canada. I had to pay about 75% more here in Canada and this can't be explained by the exchange rate.

very nice amp

JTG, Amazon
31 July 2012
  • Summary: This is a very nice budget amp, a little lacking in remote control access to it's features but as long as you don't mind getting up to adjust the treble then you'll probably be very satisfied.
