You may have probably heard that thanks to the Yamaha A-S801 specs, specifically ToP-ART circuitry that enhances the sound quality and high structural stability, this integrated amplifier delivers exceptionally musical and powerful sound. See more in this Yamaha A-S801 review.
The output power figures are enormous 100W at 8 Ohms. On board there is a loudness function with smooth tuning with the help of the control, which allows you to maintain the correct balance of treble and bass even at low volume levels. There is a CD Direct Amplification mode, which, when connected via the “CD” input, guarantees an increase in the signal-to-noise ratio, turns off the power of unused circuits and ensures the most pure reproduction. Another Pure Direct mode allows the signal to go along the shortest path, bypassing the buffer amplifier, tone block, loudness and balance controls, which allows you to eliminate noise and get a clean sound.
The complete Yamaha A-S801 amplifier has a robust design and is equipped with circuitry made in accordance with proprietary ToP-ART technology. The technology provides for the use of the absolutely symmetrical design of the left and right channels (Direct Symmetrical Design), in which the signal is transmitted from input to output in a direct symmetrical pattern with a minimum amount of noise and distortion. The result is exceptional purity and accuracy of the sound. The amplifier uses high-quality relays, a single-point grounding system, custom capacitors and other carefully selected premium elements. The metal case is equipped with an anti-vibration chassis with a double bottom, which has an additional iron plate a millimeter thick. A central screed beam is mounted in the housing, reinforcing the rigidity of the entire structure.
The Yamaha A-S801 is equipped with an MM phono stage and has a set of line inputs, as well as coaxial and optical inputs. There is a subwoofer connector and 4 pairs of screw gold-plated terminals. You can connect a YBA-11 Bluetooth receiver with aptX codec support to the amplifier.
