Yamaha AS Amplifiers

We've just received the new Yamaha AS Amplifiers in store and wow, they are everything we hoped and more.

AS series amps are an all-analog affair, with retro styling that reflects the old-school ethos of the technology under the hood that emphasises analog purity over all else.

The new AS amplifiers (A-S3200, A-S2200 and A-S1200) feature massive toroidal transformers, high quality PPS capacitors, low impedance balanced design and a 'mechanical ground' concept that dramatically reduces internal vibration. Oh, and those lovely VU meters!

A-S3200

The A-S3200 is the flagship of the 2020 AS amplifier range. Its fully-balanced circuitry delivers purity of sound against a vanishingly low noise floor and extended channel separation.

We're currently running this in store paired with Dynaudio Evoke 50's which is a particularly sweet combination, but with the huge power reserves available the A-S3200 is capable of driving virtually any loudspeaker to its full potential.

  • Fully balanced circuitry to deliver impressively low signal-to-noise ratio and improved channel separation
