  • 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).

In 37 years of good gear, this amp is great, a real value

  • Summary: I have been lucky enough to have enjoyed both the 1978 20 wpc NAD integrated amp and Roy Cizek's legendary speakers. These were labors of love. The under rated NAD was uncolored and imaged very well. The Cizeks were an absolute delight.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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).

Average stereo amplifier at a premium price

Lynxcs, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros. Thick and heavy aluminum face plate. Low noise, above average sound quality - sound warm and detailed. (Depends on listener preference some would love it or hate it) Cons. Despite relatively high cost for 2 channel stereo amplifier - Yamaha did their best to cut the corners in every possible...

A top performing amplifier

John A. Dangelo, Amazon
9 January 2010
  • Summary: Right now I am listening, in my study, to my Yamaha AS500 amplifier driving a pair of KEF Q300 speakers. My main enjoyment comes from listening to vocals performed by the great singers of the past. For example, at this moment I am listening to Nat King Cole singing "When I fall in love with you.
