  • Summary: I purchased the amplifier in 2012 (the drop down for model year ended at 2010). It replaced a mid-1970s Yamaha CR-2020. My A-S700 is teamed up with a Yamaha TX 950 (tuner) and a Yamaha CDX 1030 (CD Player).

Where the AS line starts getting good

  • Summary: I tried the RS300 the AS500 and it wasn't until this AS700 I was impressed. The AS700 has the typical Yamaha clean sound. It has the power and clarity to push anything a home listening environment will require. Lots of power in reserve. I cannot say the same for the amps below it in this series.

It's okay for your money

  • Summary: I've owned this amplifier for a number of months. First impressions were generally positive. Seemed to do everything one would expect from a solid-state 2 channel amp. This amp seems to take a long time breaking in.

when the sound is the most important factor....That's the one at the price range!

  • Summary: Sound is top here. I have heard and tested different amplifiers in the price range and this one has an edge in clarity that I've missed with other brands. Yes, the plastic Knobs are somehow annoying.

  • Summary: I just purchased the A-S700 off of ebay two weeks ago and I am so pleased with it that I decided to go ahead and write my first review. Let me start by saying that I have been an audiophile for 21 years now and have owned a wide variety of medium priced gear over the years.

Nice 1970s Retro Looking Amp with 21st Century Sound

27 May 2011
  • Summary: The look of this amp is simple and straight forward. Nothing fancy here. Yeah, the plastic vertical knobs are a turn-off and the quality of the controls could be better at this premium price.

  • Summary: I purchased the Yamaha A-S700 brand new off ebay for $350.00. It was an impulse buy just to check out Yamaha's new line of integrated amplifiers. I have owned a few other Yamahas in the past including the RX-V3000 AVR and the AX-592 integrated amplifier.

  • Summary: Bought this from Best Buy for 270 as an open box item for my masterbed room system. Best Buy didn't have the remote so had to go to Yamaha and bought a replacement for another $65. But for $335, I feel like this is a great buy. Using it with Mirage OS³-FS speakers. This amp sounds real good.

Great sound price quality

TimePieces, Amazon
8 December 2010
  • Summary: Great sound, no lack of bass whatsoever, probably depends on speakers, I have KEF IQ50 speakers connected. Natural and realistic sound, more than enough power. Beatiful timeless no-nonsense design. Sounds great with NAD C-525BEE cd player. Only stereo, 2 (A) or 4 (A+B) speakers, or 2 bi-wired (A+B).
