Yamaha AS500 integrated amplifier
Free UK Delivery
The new A-S500 integrated amplifier is a more powerful version of it's smaller brother, the AS300. Small on price but big on features and build quality, and boasting a power output of 2 x 85W RMS which will confidently drive bookshelf and floorstanding speakers in a normal domestic environment to high levels. Engineers have given the unit UK tuning - a UK panel of experienced listeners were able to listen to the AS500 prior to production to fine tune the sound to the likes of the UK market - you will be amazed when you hear the results.
Short signal paths ensure noise is minimised, 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 via gold plated 4mm loudspeaker binding posts, 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 it's class.
An Yamaha iPod dock connector on the rear allows all of the Yamaha iPod docks to work flawlessly with your iPhone or 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. Which ever way you look at it, it's one hell of an amp for the money.
