Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A2080 review

Yamaha RX-A2080 has a balanced approach to the design of both digital and analog parts. And if the digital power of the device is based on the most modern solutions - in this model in the DAC section, ESS SABER Premier ES9007S chips with parameters of 32 bits / 384 kHz are used, then the power amplifier is built in accordance with the classical ideas that a high-quality transistor should look and work apparatus. No "high-performance" integrated assemblies, no amplification in class D - only a classic circuit in class AB on complementary pairs of transistors and a powerful power supply unit made on a solid transformer.
