The power output of Yamaha A-S701 vs Marantz PM6006 is 100/8 W/Ohm and 40/8 W/Ohm. 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.
Thanks to the built-in converter CS4398 (24 bit / 192 kHz), the amplifier can be used as an external DAC. To do this, there is a coaxial input and a pair of optical inputs on its rear panel (the PM6005 model was equipped with only one optical connector), and the entire printed circuit board of the digital circuit is in a metal case-screen and does not adversely affect analog circuits. There is a set of linear RCA inputs, MM phono stage connectors, a recording output, and D-Bus system bus switching.
The Yamaha A-S701 is better integrated amplifier in this comparison. Check Yamaha A-S701 price
