Yamaha A-S801 Integrated Amplifier Review


The Yamaha A-S801 is an honestly rated 100 watt/ch integrated amplifier with a built in high resolution USB-B DAC to power a serious dedicated two-channel or upscale PC system with pristine fidelity.

Excellent fidelity in ALL modes of operation ; Honestly rated amp section ; USB DAC function

No preamp outputs ; Non-defeatable LPF on sub out

Awesome for the buck.


Hook this up to a pair of Yamaha 777 speaker ($ cheap). Use bi wiring with low impedance setting on amp. Spin vinyl in pure direct mode. May get a Yamaha subwoofer to match piano black finish.
