Description

Yamaha A-S301 Integrated Amplifier

The circuit design focuses on achieving high sound quality and is based on the ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) concept.

ToP-ART Design and ART Base for Optimal Sound: When audio signal processing and transmission are kept straightforward and direct, the likelihood of noise and distortion affecting the signal is reduced. Yamaha’s amplifier design technology, known as ToP-ART, employs an I/O (input to output) Direct Symmetrical Design, with the left and right channels organized in a straight, symmetrical layout to ensure the highest signal purity. Additionally, the ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) Base bottom chassis and a solid center bar provide strong support and vibration damping, contributing to the rich audio reproduction and musicality of this amplifier.

High-Quality Components for Exceptional Audio Performance: Custom-made power transformers, custom-made block capacitors, two direct signal path speaker relays, a one-point grounding system, aluminum-extruded heat sinks, and other top-quality parts are used to effortlessly handle demanding audio signal conditions. The quality of each individual component and how they work together fundamentally determine the sound quality of the amplifier. Yamaha selects and tests only very high-quality parts.

Built on Yamaha’s Rich Experience and Tradition: Yamaha, with a history of over 125 years as a musical instrument maker, has a strong reputation for HiFi components. The A-S301 benefits from this wealth of experience and high technological expertise. It is designed based on the concept of “Natural Sound,” aiming to reproduce music as it truly sounds. From circuit design to basic sound production, meticulous care is taken, and despite being an entry-level model, it delivers high sound quality and a musically rich sound.

Pure Direct Mode for Purer Sound: The Pure Direct mode allows music signals to take the shortest possible circuit route, bypassing the buffer amp and the tone, loudness, and balance controls, virtually eliminating any signal degradation for the purest sound quality.

Continuously Variable Loudness Control: The A-S301 features a new analog loudness control on the front panel that utilizes electronic volume for higher sound quality. This control allows you to adjust the loudness effect as desired, separate from the overall volume. It balances the low and high-frequency sounds, providing a full tonal range at any volume level, compensating for the natural loss of high and low frequencies at lower volume levels.

Digital Audio Input for TV and Blu-ray Player: The A-S301 is equipped with both optical and coaxial digital audio input terminals. The optical input is for receiving audio from a TV, while the coaxial input is for receiving audio from a Blu-ray player. The audio remains in the digital domain, ensuring pure and pristine dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources, from sports and TV programs to movies and concerts.

Speaker A, B, or A+B Selection and Speaker Terminals for Two Systems: You can connect two separate speaker systems in different rooms and switch between them or have them play simultaneously. There are four terminals, so by simply pressing a button, you can match the speakers to the sound source.

Subwoofer Terminal: The amplifier includes a terminal for connecting a subwoofer, allowing you to enhance the bass output of your system for more powerful sound and improved overall sound quality.

Phono MM Terminal: You can connect a turntable with an MM (Moving Magnet) phono cartridge to play vinyl records. This enables you to enjoy not only CDs but also the analogue sound of vinyl records with an amplifier featuring the latest digital/analog technology.

Simple yet Elegant Design: The amplifier features a beautifully simple and unique design inspired by Yamaha’s HiFi audio components. It boasts an easy-to-operate button layout. The aluminum front panel has a richly textured silver hairline finish. The control knobs are crafted with the same luxurious construction as Yamaha’s top-end models.

Remote Control with Clean and Simple Design: The remote control has a clean and straightforward design for easy one-handed operation. Its user-friendly design makes adjusting song volume and order a breeze. The unit has a sophisticated hairline finish that matches the amplifier’s design. You can also use the remote to control a Yamaha CD player.

Rotary Encoder Input Selector with LEDs: The rotary encoder allows for quick and easy selection of input sources. The luxury hairline finish material offers a pleasant tactile feeling. LEDs clearly indicate the selected source, making it easy to switch sources even in a dark room.

Auto Power Standby Function: The amplifier includes a power management function that detects prolonged periods of inactivity (approximately 8 hours) when the power is still on and automatically shifts the amplifier into standby mode. This minimizes power consumption even if you forget to turn it off.
