Conveying the emotional story of artists can only truly be achieved with an intimate understanding of how music is created. This understanding is embedded in the Yamaha DNA, developed particularly through working with artists to help them create music. It’s this understanding that enables Yamaha to truly convey all the emotion ingrained in the music to the listener.
Toroidal power transformers, renowned for their superior performance in Hi-Fi components has been appointed to power the A-S2200. Its ability to maintain energy when compared to substitutes aids the A-S2200 in delivering all the emotional energy of the artist infused in the music.
Gorgeous Level Meters
The level meters are both a nod to the nostalgic era of Hi-Fi while simultaneously demonstrating the importance of pure Hi-Fi for today’s discerning enthusiast. Visually presenting the dynamics and pulse of the music, the level meters imbue a warm feeling through their softly illuminated LEDs.
True Hi-Fi brings the artist to the forefront and makes the listener forget where they are. Music listening becomes an active experience rather than a passive activity. The openness in the Yamaha Hi-Fi range delivers this musical experience.
Thick Wires for Ground Connection
A naturally open sound stage is achieved through a culmination of design and component selection. Thick wires for ground connection were purposely selected, adding to the overall low impedance amplifier design, producing a wide and open sound stage for the listener. Consequently, the components disappear, leaving the artist in their place.
Original Speaker Terminals
Cut directly from pure brass, the luxurious speaker terminals effortlessly allow tightening by hand, achieving a highly secure connection.
Music is more than a story. The rhythm and groove of the music reaches the listener, consciously or subconsciously, to evoke a feeling from the story that’s within the music. Presenting the music as intended by the artist achieves this for the listener.
Mechanical Ground Concept
The Mechanical Ground Concept adopted in the A-S2200 maximizes rigidity and reduces any unwanted vibration, achieving expressive and rhythmic bass. Further rigidity is achieved with the large power transformer, block capacitors and heat sink directly bolted to the chassis while the feet, with bolts directly welded to the main chassis, provide further reinforcement for absolute rigidity.
