Specs and features

This Yamaha product has 85W (8 Ohms) of output power. Model A-S501 is the embodiment of the accumulated technical solutions by the company's specialists. It was developed on the principle of "Natural Sound". Which implies the natural sounding of any composition. The amplifier is unique in that you can even connect a turntable to it. So its possibilities are endless. In case you forget to turn off the device, it will automatically go into standby mode.

Design and build

Elegant modern design pleases every connoisseur of sound. The model is compact and easy to use. The levers on the front panel allow you to control the device even for a novice user. Unique proprietary ToP-ART technology is a design that is created symmetrically. It transmits signals from input to output in a straight line. The lower chassis of the ART Base allows you to dampen vibrations and increase the clarity of sound reproduction. When creating the device were used components of the highest quality. Every detail passed a special test. Due to this, every detail affects the nature of reproduction.

Connectivity

A-S501 is equipped with optical and coaxial inputs. The first directional allows you to receive audio from a TV. And the second from the Blu-ray disc player. At the output, you get the clear sound of your favorite tracks. The system also has a special connector for the subwoofer, which allows you to make the sound more powerful. Using the YBA-11 adapter, you can establish a wireless connection with a mobile phone, tablet or computer. This requires only their compatibility. You can connect as many as two speakers and use them alternately. Special terminals provide fast and uninterrupted switching.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • There's a mode where you can even bypass the filters and switches for even higher fidelity sound
  • It can drive 4 ohm speakers without destroying the amp, which is pretty impressive
  • There's actually a switch in the back for that with a 4 ohm label, so you know it's not just hype

Cons

  • If the unit was turned off, a relay would randomly click inside, sometimes within minutes or even seconds
