great value yamaha amp

 

I bought this to replace a 35 year old Yamaha receiver, and am very delighted to say the sound quality and sound detail is much better

Well Featured

 

Only had it a couple of weeks but there is no doubt it is a quality "budget" amp. Bought to replace a 38 year old Technics SU-7300 which was still going strong but was lacking a couple of features due to it's vintage. Namely a subwoofer output and a...

Simple, solid performer, great sound

 

Nothing to write home about visually (it's a black-box with a number of dials on the front) its the sound that counts. It replaced an ageing Sony receiver and immediately showed more control and detail. I've owned high end (Linn) stuff before and this...

Nice finish, sounds good

 

I'm not an audiophile so can only say that I'm very happy with the sound. Fixed non-removable power cable is very annoying as fitting cable through small furniture gaps requires cutting the plug off, leading the cable through the gap, then fitting a...

Firstly I would like to thank Aaron at the Norwich store for being so helpful. I previously bought the Onkyo A9010 which would not work with my deck and after taking the amp and my deck to the store found that other amps worked fine so not a deck...

Old school amp

 

This amp is very good and capable. More so than the 'receiver' class. Don't be fooled with all the whizz-waws for an extra hundred quid. If you want 2.0 or 2.1 go old school with this lump. Fits well with other Yamaha kit. Get good speakers and try it...

Impressive for the money

 

Feels well built when setting it up, which is a good sign. Fiddly to extract plastic caps to allow banana plug connection. To my 60 year old years it provides a beautifully rounded but defined sound on a wide range of music, from Albinoni to Zeppelin....
