Yamaha A-S801 vs Yamaha A-S701

Yamaha-A-S801-vs-Yamaha-A-S701

Yamaha A-S801 review

On board there is a 32-bit ES9010K2M DAC supporting PCM up to 32 bit / 384 kHz and DSD (2.8 / 5.6 MHz) when connected via an asynchronous USB port, for which the company offers a Yamaha Steinberg ASIO2.3 driver that provides the minimum delay and high bandwidth. The amplifier design uses a separate master oscillator that eliminates jitter. On the facade of the building there is a series of LED indicators that determine the format of the incoming digital signal and its sampling frequency. What about Yamaha A-S801 vs Yamaha A-S701 power output we can see that both have 100W at 8 Ohms. Yamaha A-S801

Yamaha A-S701 review

Thanks to the built-in DAC, as well as coaxial / optical inputs, Yamaha A-S701 can connect digital sources (TV-panel, Blu-ray-player, etc.). At the same time, reception of signals in PCM format up to 24 bit / 192 kHz is supported. 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. Yamaha A-S701

Yamaha A-S801 pros & cons

Pros

  • Versatility in terms of reproducible material
  • Sufficient power headroom for mid-range acoustics

Cons

  • It is not visible in what position the volume knob (when controlled from the remote control, it rotates)

Yamaha A-S701 pros & cons

Pros

  • The build is very solid. It weighs almost 30 pounds and the outside is very sturdy
  • Another nice feature is that you can unplug the power cord from the unit. This is a nice feature that allows you to purchase a longer or shorter cord if necessary

Cons

  • Overall appearance was spoiled by plastic tone controls
