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...

who listens to the radio anymore?

 

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...

Nice finish, sounds good

Great amp if a bit bulky

 

Firstly I would like to thank Aaron at the Norwich store for being so helpful. I previously bought the Onkyo A9010 which would not work with my deck and after taking the amp and my deck to the store found that other amps worked fine so not a deck...
