Just brilliant

It is a thing of beauty. The sound, the style, the feeling of force. Best amp I have ever heard and exceptional value. The circuit employed is somewhat unique in modern equipment and stems from a 1950s design which provides both class A and AB output (depending on power output) and emulates tube characteristics without the noise and heat issues. I’m in love

Description

Yamaha A-S1200 Integrated Amplifier

Heavy-duty switches and knobs grace the front panel of the Yamaha A-S1200 Integrated Amplifier, while a generous offering of connections on the back can accomodate both balanced and unbalanced sources. Once you’ve hoisted this handsome heavyweight into your cabinet or rack, you’ll want to show it off like any new addition to the family. Except no one will complain when this thing gets loud.

Emotion
Music spawns from something emotional. A unique, personal story an artist wishes to share. Understanding how music is created, and indeed helping artists to create, embeds in Yamaha’s DNA a fundamental understanding of music, particularly the emotion upon which music creation is inspired. In the development of each of our extensive range of Hi-Fi products, conveying this emotion to the listener is one of the most important considerations.

Openness
Authentic, pure Hi-Fi is less about listening to brilliant sounding equipment and more about that equipment disappearing and the artist performing live in the room. The openness of the music, that feeling of being within reach of the artist, brings the music to the fore, and makes listening to music an active rather than passive experience.

Toroidal Transformer
Usually reserved for flagship Hi-Fi components, the Yamaha A-S1200 Integrated Amplifier benefits from the technical proficiency and absolute musicality of a toroidal transformer. Combined with an array of high-end Hi-Fi features and components, the toroidal transformer assists in ensuring the musical emotion is conveyed to the listener.

Gorgeous Level Meters
The level meters are both a nod to the nostalgic era of Hi-Fi, while simultaneously demonstrating the return 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.

Thick Wires for Ground Connection by Low Impedance Concept
Low Impedance concept, aided by the thick wires for  ground connection, is critical for premier Hi-Fi components. This design concept, starting with the A-S1200 in the range, achieves an open, natural sound stage,
bringing the artist and listener closer together.

Mechanical Ground Concept
Like the A-S2200 and A-S3200, the Yamaha A-S1200 Integrated Amplifier adopts a Mechanical Ground Concept, which begins with the bolts of the feet welded directly to the main chassis, followed by the large heat sink, power transformer and block capacitors directly bolted to the chassis. Through this design, unwanted vibration is avoided, achieving expressive ‘groove’ in the music.

Original Speaker Terminals
Cut directly from pure brass, the luxurious speaker terminals  effortlessly allowing tightening by the human hand achieving a highly secure connection.

Silver-plated Feet
Complementing the rigidity of the amplifier’s chassis design, the A-S1200 is equipped with heavy-duty, silverplated feet.
