Yamaha A-S301 vs Onkyo A-9110

Yamaha A-S301 review

The opponent’s power loses Yamaha in two times - 60W vs 30W both at 8 Ohms. The Yamaha A-S301 amplifier is equipped with both traditional analog and modern digital inputs (optical and coaxial) for connecting to modern TVs or Blu-ray players, and the built-in phono stage allows you to easily connect a vinyl record player. The amplifier is equipped with two pairs of output terminals for connecting speakers, as well as an additional connector for connecting a subwoofer. The amplifier is assembled on the basis of specially selected components and equipped with a powerful power supply. The amplifier is equipped with a switchable “pure direct” mode, which provides the shortest signal path, bypassing the tone, loudness and balance controls. Yamaha A-S301

Onkyo A-9110 review

The Onkyo A-9110 integrated amplifier, created on the basis of the successful A-9010 model, is a component with a modified design of the original amplifier, which has earned a good reputation among both critics and customers for its dynamism and musicality. The amplifier is equipped with five RCA inputs, including the MM Phono input, for connecting your sources and high-quality speaker terminals. It is made on an anti-resonant chassis and is equipped with a thick brushed aluminum front panel. Onkyo A-9110
