Yamaha A-S700

What Hi-Fi?
28 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Actually, no. Let's start with the positives. There are, after all, quite a few. The looks, for instance: in a group of play-it-safe, me-too designs, the modicum of flair Yamaha has shown in the A-S700 is very welcome. Specification, too, is on the money; a couple of tape loops, a moving-magnet phono stage and binding for a couple of pairs of speakers is all good news, while a claimed 90 watts per channel doesn't look too shabby either.
  • Pros: Thoughtful design and hefty spec, staunchly middle-of-the-road sound
  • Cons: Outmuscled and outgunned by virtually all its rivals

  • Excerpt: The superb A-S700 Shares many merits with the award winning AS-1000, at less than half the cost. Yamaha is now one of the only large multinational manufacturers that continues to offer an extensive range of high-quality two-channel amplifiers and if the incredible success of its flagship stereo amplifiers, the AS-2000 and AS-1000 are any indication, the other companies are already ruing the day they decided to exit the two-channel market.

  • Summary: Wzmacniacz wyjątkowy, choć specyficzny. Wygląda jak pierwsze fascynacje większości z nas. Dźwięk też zbliża się do tamtych obiektów marzeń. Nie każdego zachwyci to wzornictwo i charakter brzmienia, ale jak coś jest dla wszystkich, to jest dla nikogo.

  • Conclusion: Nun, sowohl der Verstärker Yamaha A-S700 als auch der CD-Player CD-S700  sind nach HighEnd-Maßstäben – und zugegeben auch im Vergleich zu dem, was sonst so durch unsere Testpipeline rauscht – angenehm moderat gepreist. Der Verstärker ist - abhängig von den sonstigen Komponenten in der Kette (die nach meinem Dafürhalten möglichst nicht in Richtung schlank-analytisch tendieren sollten) - sicherlich in der Lage, auch anspruchsvollere, vor allen Dingen ein gutes Timing und...

  • Summary: Denne forsterkeren fra Yamaha er stor og tung og utstråler autoritet. Slik låter den også. Yamaha presenterer musikken meget forførerisk, og mange vil nok foretrekke denne måten å presentere musikken på. Har du litt tungdrevne høyttalere med lav følsomhet, er det dessuten ingen tvil om at denne vil gjøre en utmerket jobb.
