The Yamaha A-S701 is a powerful integrated amplifier with a built-in DAC. With 2 x 100 watts RMS output on hand, the AS-701 can handle a range of music with ease, even demanding speakers. There are plenty of inputs for sources, including a phono stage for turntables, analogue inputs for separate components, and digital input in the form of optical and coaxial connectors.
The A-S701 has a reinforced internal structure to prevent vibration and dual heat sinks for effective heat dissipation. The AS701's classic design and build and fantastic controlled sound make it an excellent choice for the discerning audiophile.
Quality Circuit Design: Yamaha's ToP-ART Design and ART Base ensure optimum sound quality by ensuring a direct and straightforward processing and transmission of the audio signal. The ToP-ART technology features an I/O (input to output) Direct Symmetrical Design, arranging left and right channels in a straight, symmetrical layout for the highest signal purity. Additionally, the ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) Base bottom chassis and a solid center bar provide high-rigidity support and vibration damping. These Yamaha design innovations contribute to this amplifier's rich audio reproduction with abundant musicality.
High-Grade Parts: Custom-made power transformer, custom-made block capacitors, two direct signal path speaker relays, one-point grounding system, aluminum-extruded heat sinks, and other top-quality parts effortlessly handle demanding audio signal conditions. The quality of each individual part, as well as how they work together, significantly influences the sound quality of any component. Yamaha uses only very high-quality parts, carefully selected and tested.
Technological Expertise: Yamaha, with a long history of over 125 years as a musical instrument maker, also has a high reputation for HiFi components. The A-S701 is created by taking advantage of this rich experience and high technological expertise. Based on the concept of “Natural Sound”, for reproducing all music as it really sounds, and built with scrupulous care from circuit design to basic sound production, even though an entry model it reproduces high sound quality and musically rich sound.
Direct & Pure Direct: With a straight connection to the CD input, CD Direct Amplification maximizes CD source S/N ratio. Additionally, engaging the Pure Direct mode causes the music signals to travel the shortest possible circuit route, bypassing the buffer amp and the tone, loudness, and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation for the purest sound quality.
Variable Loudness Control: The A-S701 also features a new analog loudness control on the front panel that uses electronic volume for higher sound quality, which lets you adjust the loudness effect as desired. Separate from the overall volume, this controls the balance of the low- and high-frequency sounds, providing a full tonal range at any volume level, compensating for the natural loss in the human ear of high and low frequencies at soft levels.
Gold-plated Terminals: Gold-plated terminals ensure a high-quality connection that prevents signal loss. The A-S701 has gold-plated speaker terminals and input terminals.
Digital Input: The A-S701 is equipped for digital audio input with both optical and coaxial terminals. The optical is for receiving audio from a TV, and the coaxial for receiving audio from a Blu-ray player. The audio stays in the digital domain, giving you pure, pristine dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources, from sports and other programs to movies and concerts.
Optional Bluetooth: With the Yamaha YBA-11 (not included), you’ll be able to stream music wirelessly from a Bluetooth-capable mobile phone or a PC to the Network receiver. Thanks to the digital connection and aptX audio coding algorithm, you’ll enjoy wireless music streaming with optimum sound quality. You can also conveniently power the YBA-11 via the DC-out connection on the rear panel of the amplifier.
Speaker Selection: You can connect two separate speaker systems in different rooms and switch between them or have them both playing at the same time. There are four terminals, so by just pushing a button, you can switch speakers to match the sound source.
Subwoofer Terminal: A terminal for connecting a subwoofer is provided, allowing you to increase the bass output of your system for a more powerful sound with better overall sound quality.
Phono Input: You can connect a turntable with an MM phono cartridge to play vinyl records. This lets you enjoy not only CDs but also analogue record sound from an amp with the latest digital/analogue technology.
Sophisticated Design: With a beautifully simple and unique design inherited directly from Yamaha’s HiFi audio components, this amplifier also boasts an easy-to-operate button layout. The aluminum front panel has a richly textured silver hairline finish. The control knobs are also of the same luxurious construction as used on our top-end models.
Remote Control: The clean, simple design of the remote control provides easy-to-understand one-hand operation. The easy-to-use design makes it simple to adjust song volume and order. The unit has a sophisticated looking hairline finish that matches the design of the amplifiers. You can also use the remote to control a Yamaha CD player.
Input Selector: The rotary encoder makes it quick and easy to select input sources. The luxury hairline finish material offers a nice tactile feeling. LEDs clearly show which source is selected, so you can easily switch sources even in a dark room
