Review of the Yamaha A-S501 Integrated Amp by Audio Appraisal
A review of the £360 Yamaha A-S501 Integrated Amplifier by Audio Appraisal. The Yamaha A-S501 offers 120 Watts per channel and has both digital and phono MC Inputs. Audio Appraisal are impressed coming up with a highly recommended award for the Yamaha A-S501 and a review conclusion of :-

Another fantastic effort from Yamaha. The Yamaha A-S501 is a worthy successor to the previous A-S500. While the A-S501 offers several advantages over its predecessor, including a built-in DAC, upgraded components and revised circuitry, it’s still the same amp we all know and love. It’s big, bold and powerful sound is instantly likeable, it’s flexible enough to integrate well into almost any system, and it’s built well enough to provide many, many years of musical enjoyment.

If I were to make any changes to this amplifier, they would be minor. A detachable power cable would be a nice touch, and I’d like to see the record output selector re-introduced – an especially useful feature given that the A-S501 offers 2 tape loops. However, with an excellent DAC and phono stage on board, and the A-S501 being an impressive analogue amplifier itself, there’s no cause for complaint at the price. Highly recommended.
