Yamaha pleased its customers with another amp model. Model A-S701 is equipped with modern technology and gives excellent sound. Check all Yamaha A-S701 specs in this Yamaha A-S701 review.
The Yamaha A-S701 power supply uses 12,000 uF buffer capacitors and a massive custom transformer. For cooling, large extruded aluminum radiators are used. The circuits are equipped with carefully selected and tested elements, including high-quality relays, a single-point grounding system, custom-made capacitors and other high-class components. The Yamaha A-S701 amplifier allows you to use the CD Direct Amplification switchable mode, which, when the source is connected to the “CD” input, increases the signal-to-noise ratio and provides direct signal transmission, bypassing the input selector, tone block, as well as balance and loudness controls. Pure Direct mode works with all inputs, sending a signal bypassing the buffer amplifier and the controls for balance, timbre, loudness. It has 100W at 8-ohm load.
The Yamaha A-S701 Integrated Amplifier has a circuit topology that uses proprietary ToP-ART technology. Thanks to such circuitry and Direct Symmetrical Design, the right and left channels are absolutely symmetrical. In this case, the signal transmission from the input to the output of the amplifier is performed according to a direct symmetrical scheme, which ultimately helps to minimize distortion and obtain pure natural sound. The case of the model is equipped with a special ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) Base, which, in conjunction with a central metal screed, provides excellent damping, increased stiffness and minimized vibration and resonance.
On board there is a headphone amplifier, MM phono stage, a set of line inputs, recording outputs and a connector for an active subwoofer. It is possible to connect an external YBA-11 Bluetooth module that supports the aptX codec. To connect the speakers are four pairs of gold-plated screw terminals.
