Product Description

Style: A S300BL

The Yamaha A-S300 Integrated Amplifier (Black) would make a great amp for a starter hifi system or a secondary room. The amplifier boasts a power output of 2 x 60W RMS which will confidently drive bookshelf and floor standing speakers in a normal domestic environment to high levels.Short signal paths ensure noise is minimized, if you do not need to use the tone controls they can be defeated with a Pure Direct button for best sound quality. Two sets of speakers may be connected and switched, ideal for a second pair of speakers in another room.The mechanical anti-resonance centre bar in the enclosure strengthens and prevents the sound in the room vibrating the critical internal components, ensuring the cleanest reproduction for an amplifier in its class.An iPod dock connector on the rear allows all of the Yamaha iPod docks to work flawlessly with your iPod and also gives an independent power supply to the rest of the amplifier, for maximum noise immunity. With the on-board phono input (moving magnet compatible), you can even connect your turntable and enjoy that unmistakable warmth and lush sound from your cherished LP's.

In my opinion, good quality 2-channel sound is the best option if you enjoy music.
Enabling the Pure Direct feature (bypasses tonal and loudness controls; prevents amp from altering audio signal) yields the best quality output.

Very well built, sound quality is amazing, especially used with my DT880 headphone.

In my opinion, good quality 2-channel sound is the best option if you enjoy music. I sought to put together an entry-level "audiophile" 2.1 system. My source is an iMac running lossless files through a NuForce uDAC2. I've owned and enjoyed the sound of a variety of UK manufactured/designed speakers in the past. The Brits are still fond of 2-channel... they've been smart enough not to bite on the hype and expense of surround. Because of this, I used a number of UK audio review sites to wade through the available 2-channel integrated amps and bookshelf-sized speakers. I took my chances and, based on WhatHiFi's calling it the best amp under $800, I purchased the Yamaha A-S500 to pair with my Monitor Audio BR2 speakers and Jamo sub. I was impressed the first time I listened three weeks ago and am still impressed every evening when I sit down to listen. I listen to jazz and wide range of artists from Union Station to Wilco to Radiohead. The sound exceeds any I've dreamed of. It is strikingly clear and natural. I've never touched the bass/treble controls; no need to; flat sounds spectacular. Bass is natural. When listening to the Keith Jarrett Trio, Jack DeJohnette's cymbals are replicated to perfection. I don't agree with some other reviews that are concerned about the A-S500 build quality. I think the build quality is very good with the slight exception of the "plasticy" control knobs. I can live with the knobs, they aren't a deal breaker. I can't recommend the Yamaha A-S500 enough. It has changed how I listen to my music collection.

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. Balance, Sound Stage and Imaging in a well built and affordable speaker. I mention these because they became my benchmarks over the years. I am not going to get nasty about the major manufacturers that continue to market brilliantly and consistently fail to deliver either performance or value at any price, but you wouldn't be shopping if you didn't agree.
I didn't need a new amp when I ran across the British review of the AS 500. I was listening to a very nice Rotel stack. The idea of a simple solution is very compelling though. Especially if there are no real sacrifices. I have always looked at Yamaha as a good workmanlike product with consistent dependability and value. The idea of a High Fidelity product, a first step into the esoteric if you will, from a company known for value and reliability over flash was very compelling.

Looks: We have to get this silliness out of the way because it is too subjective to merit serious consideration. Plastic Knobs? I didn't notice until I read another review. So the look is clean, old school boxy, simple and Understandable which means they spent your money somewhere else.

Features: I really like the option of having a tone control available for someone who needs it, especially when it can be completely bypassed by those who are really more focused on performance. Pure Direct turns the performance corner. The imaging improves as does detail. Purely analog is a limitation these days. Most of us store music in some digital form or another, but a good DAC does not come cheaply.

I received this Yamaha A-S300 Integrated Stereo Amplifier on December 17, 2013 and installed it into my system yesterday, December 18.

To make a long story short, it is my opinion that this amplifier is a superb instrument, one which will bring a lot of pleasure (and excellent sound quality) to its owner(s). Please read on, if you wish, for my reasons for liking this unit so much.

Formerly I owned an NAD Stereo Receiver Model 7020 which had served well for over 32 years of very heavy (daily except when my wife and I were traveling) use but it 'died' last week. The sound quality it produced was nothing short of superb; its amplifier section was based on that of the legendary NAD Stereo Amplifier 3020/3020A. (I also own one each of those models and they are still in 'like-new' condition.) Due to its age, I have decided against trying to have the 7020 repaired. And, after all, 32 years is a good run.

That NAD receiver was used in conjunction with Mordaunt-Short Pageant Series II loudspeakers as will this new Yamaha amplifier.

Having had experience with other Yamaha amplifiers (the DSP-A1000 and, most notably, the RX-Z9), I decided to buy this one.

When the 7020 'died,' I temporarily placed my 3020A into my system and, the day I received the Yamaha (it arrived in the evening, too late to install that day), I played the Mercury Living Presence CD 432 005-2 "ANTAL DORATI CONDUCT KODÀLY AND BARTÓK." I especially paid attention to the '"Háry János" Suite.'

The sound quality of this recording, through the 3020A, was, as expected, superb.
