Yamaha A-S301 Integrated Amplifier

We like the pure analog design of the Yamaha AS-S301. Bravo Yamaha! for not resorting to digital like so many peers

Yamaha is serious about their HiFi amplifiers.

Yamaha’s amplifier design technology called ToP-ART features an I/O (input to output) Direct Symmetrical Design, with left and right channels organised in a straight, symmetrical layout for highest signal purity.

In addition, the ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) Base bottom chassis and a solid centre bar provide high-rigidity support and vibration damping. These Yamaha design innovations contribute to this amplifiers’  musicality.

High Quality Parts for Outstanding Audio Performance

Custom-made power transformer, custom-made block capacitors, two direct signal path speaker relays, one-point grounding system, aluminium-extruded heat sinks and other top-quality parts effortlessly handle demanding audio signal conditions. 

Pure Direct Mode for Greater Sound Purity

The Pure Direct mode causes the music signals to travel the shortest possible circuit route, bypassing the buffer amp and the tone, loudness and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation for the purest sound quality.

Digital Audio Input for TV and/or Blu-ray Player

The A-S301 is equipped for digital audio input with both optical and coaxial terminals. The optical is for receiving audio from a TV, and the coaxial for receiving audio from a Blu-ray player. 

Stream music with a Bluetooth Wireless Adapter

We have simple bluetooth wireless adapters available, with these you’ll be able to stream music wirelessly from a Bluetooth capable mobile phone or a PC to the A-S301 amplifier. 

Speaker A, B or A+B Selection and Speaker Terminals for Two Systems

You can connect two separate speaker systems in different rooms and switch between them, or have them both playing at the same time. There are four terminals, so by just pushing a button, you can switch speakers to match the sound source.

Subwoofer Terminal

A terminal for connecting a subwoofer is provided, allowing you to increase the bass output of your system for a more powerful sound with better overall sound quality.

Phono MM Terminal

You can connect a turntable with an MM phono cartridge to play vinyl records. This lets you enjoy not only CDs, but also analogue record sound from an amp with the latest digital/analogue technology.

Simple yet Sophisticated Design

With a beautifully simple and unique design inherited directly from Yamaha’s HiFi audio components, this amplifier also boast an easy-to-operate button layout. The aluminium front panel has a richly textured silver hairline finish. The control knobs are also of the same luxurious construction as used on our top-end models.

Reviews

"My initial impression of the sound was not what I expected. It was nice and warm, almost tube-like, not the usual coldness I get from most amps at this price point.  Playing a few tracks to warm up the system, I was able to hear a more natural, full sound, definitely fuller than other similarly priced amps"
