Yamaha AS301


The Yamaha AS-301 is an awesome amplifier for the money and certainly much more robust than the Pionner amp I only used for about a week before the power unit packed up. The Yamaha sounds great, looks great and has some other nice features...

plenty of options at the back of the amp ; separately switched speaker sockets ; great build quality

worst remote i've ever seen ; bass could be a bit more punchier

Purchased this to pair with some Q Acoustic 3010. Sounds amazing. Needed the digital input for my blu ray player. The Pure sound direct mode is great for movies, really makes the voices stand out, which was always something I struggled with using the...

Excellent sound for the money


I have owned an AS501 since they were first released so when I was looking for something a little less powerful for my study I had no hesitation in buying the lower rated product. Excellent sound quality for the money

Brilliant piece of kit for the money


This amp does everything you could want from an entry level model to a standard beyond what you'd expect. On the face of it, this is comparable to products from the likes of Cambridge Audio, Pioneer etc. However, it has some great features which ensure...

Good quality sound, good value


This replaced a very old amp that I bought many years ago. I bought it because it looked streamlined and classic. And I needed a number of connections for other equipment. It fitted my price range. I was pleased to find after I had connected it all up...

perfect for me


I bought the Yamaha AS 301 to provide better sound from my TV - and to form the centre of a stereo system. To go with it, James at the Edinburgh branch guided me to a pair of Dali Zensor 1 speakers; the three items give a really clear definition to the...
