Excellent Sound - 2 channel winner for sure

 

If you are in the market for an old school 2 channel integrated amp look no further. I took a shot at this based on all of the other solid reviews out there. I was running an Older Nad preamp with a Rotel amp - not bad right? Well not bad but this new...

Excellent amp.

 

For the money, it's very hard to beat this amp. It specs out much better than higher priced competitors and has a dedicated phono jack because VINYL is back, baby! Sounds great with my old Fisher speakers ... But it'll sound even better when I jimp to...

Outstanding Product for the money

 

This product is a great value for the price. It matches much more expensive TV's in picture quality, features, and delivers 240Hz performance as well. It also has Internet capabilities that make this one to buy.

Yamaha A-S500 Amplifier

 

At 85 watts a channel continuous it will drive almost anything you have for a speaker system. It's controls, although unspectacular in appearance more than do the job. I have it set on the direct cd setting and it makes you think concert hall. If you...
