Best service in Melbourne!
As I am moving house shortly, the amp has unfortunately been sitting in the box doing absolutely nothing. I am sure it will be fine but the service I received at the store was second to none. Will definitely be back!

The Yamaha A-S701BL is, in My Opinion, as Superb an Integrated Amplifier as There Is On the Market!
For many years I have owned two stereo audio systems. My 'secondary' one had, as its amplification equipment, an NAD-7020 receiver. After over 30 years, it 'died' and, rather than trying to have it repaired, I decided to replace it with a Yamaha A-S300 integrated amplifier. I was (and am) immensely ...

Hey gang, new here. I’m running Polk T50’s and a jbl powered sub on an onkyo 300w receiver. Onkyo gets hot on these speakers and I’m wondering what kind of amp I need to get to fix this issue. Thanks
If you have bass management in the receiver you could cross the speakers over at 60-80hz that would really help. If your looking at a new Integrated you could do a used Yamaha a-s series 301,501, or 701 Just look on ebay for a good deal. The Yammy's have good dacs for the money in their integrated and a passable phono stage. For the money that is what I would suggest.

Conclusions. While the sound of the Yamaha A-S301 Integrated Amplifier can be nitpicked, its feature set leaves little to be desired.

Good pure sound and many input and output choices.
I use this amp to record from vinyl disks to my computer. Then I record the digital results to CDs to use for everyday playing. This preserves the records for future use. Note: I have had Yamaha skis (circa 1964) and a motorcycle later on. Always have been happy with Yamaha products.

Yamaha A-S301 stereo receiver review - Perfect Acoustic
Yamaha used Top-Art technology in the manufacture of the amplifier, which means a symmetrical design. This results in much higher signal clarity, noise and distortion-free sound. Thanks to ART technology, vibration damping is also optimal.

$400 Passive Bookshelf Speakers?
(The successor to the 225’s is the 12.2, not the 12.1.). And if you’re not doing surround off the bat, skip the Denon and yet a Yamaha A-S301 if you want far better quality for the same money. Or get a Sony STR-DH190 if you want the same quality for less than half the price.
In Depth Yamaha A-S301 Review a different take from Z Reviews
They did none of that all of the engineering budget went into sound for this thing and it really really really shows. Needless to say, I can unequivocally give this a giant recommendation thumbs up to get this thing.
