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. 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. Regarding power output Yamaha A-S801 vs Marantz PM8006 have the next figures: 100/8 and 70/8 W/Ohm.
The Marantz integrated amplifier is made in a corporate design with a curly aluminum front panel. In addition to the usual input selector and volume control, there are also tone controls for low, medium and high frequencies, as well as buttons for selecting operating modes. Among them is a selector of two pairs of connected speakers and “direct” audio supply bypassing auxiliary circuits, as well as turning on the input of a power amplifier. The amplifier is made on a three-layer chassis, eliminating the impact of any external vibrations on it.
The Yamaha A-S801 is better integrated amplifier in this comparison. Check Yamaha A-S801 price
