Excellent budget choice


The yamaha as-301 is an awesome amplifier for people with low budget. The phono input is decent and much better than other amplifiers in the same price range, many inout choices although no hdmi. In terms of power the yamaha can easily drive demanding...

imho, you should skip the old 'receiver' and upgrade to a new Integrated Amplifier like this Yamaha unit. When shopping to replace my receiver i stumbled across an article on cnet about integrated amps. After spending a couple hours learning about...

Great amp, great new features


I upgraded from a Yamaha AX470 to the new A-S301, basically the same power plant but with the new refinements, a subwoofer connection, and Bluetooth capability. Same quality and price point.

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...
