Great amplifier

 

I upgraded from an old 80s technics amp which was on its last legs and cutting out every so often. This amp has great power and provides excellent sound, picking out parts of records extremely clearly.

Austere and effective

 

This product does "what it says on the can". As long as you press the Pure Sound button, that is. Simple, straightforward. It is even better with the Yamaha subwoofer.

Fabulous value for the price.

 

Over the years, I have had a few nice amplifiers, working for prestigious HI FI shops and owning and listening to some really expensive equipment. I am not saying that this little Yamaha is the best ever, however for £250 what more do you realistically...
