Made with Yamaha’s unique experience, tradition and technical expertise
Yamaha not only has more than 125 years of tradition in instrument manufacturing, but also an excellent reputation for its hi-fi components. For the development of the A-S301, both the many years of experience and the technical expertise were fully utilized.
Based on the concept of “Natural Sound”, music is reproduced as it really sounds. In addition, the Verstärker was built with the utmost care from the switching paths to the sound generation – even as an entry-level model, it has excellent sound quality as well as a unique musicality.
Excellent circuit design based on the ToP-ART concept for highest sound quality
The ToP-ART concept (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) guarantees excellent sound in interaction with the ART Base. After all, only when both the processing and transmission of audio signals are designed to be simple and direct will the influence of noise and distortion be minimized. Yamaha technology for this amplifier design is called ToP-ART.
It consists of a fully balanced design from input to output, with left and right channels processed with the shortest possible signal paths. This guarantees an outstanding sound with unadulterated clarity.
The ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) Base cabinet and the solid center rail provide additional stability and dampen vibrations. These design innovations from Yamaha further contribute to excellent audio reproduction with superb musicality.
Continuously adjustable loudness
The Yamaha A-S301 features a new analog loudness control located on the front panel. It uses electronic volume control for the highest sound quality, so the loudness effect can be adjusted as desired. Separate from the normal volume control, the balance between highs and lows can thus be influenced. This makes the full tonal bandwidth available, compensating for the natural hearing loss of high and low frequencies at low volume.
Rotary knob with LEDs for source selection
A rotary knob makes input source selection quick and easy. The high-quality material with hairline finish has an appealing feel. The selected source is displayed with LEDs, so it is easy to switch between the players even in dark rooms.
High-quality components for superior sound quality
The quality of the individual parts and their interaction are crucial for the sound of each component. That’s why Yamaha uses only high-quality components that are carefully selected and tested. With the A-S301, excellent signal reproduction is guaranteed even under demanding conditions -.
The mains transformer and blocking capacitors are custom-made, the loudspeaker relays have a direct signal path, and there are single-point grounding and extruded aluminum heat exchangers.
Remote control with clear intuitive design
The clear and simple design of the remote control allows intuitive control with one hand. For example, the volume or playback order can be set easily and conveniently. The clean design with Hairline finish harmonizes perfectly with the Verstärker itself. The remote control can also be used to control a Yamaha CD player.
Connections for two speakerand choice between speaker A, B or A+B
You can connect two separate speakerin different rooms and switch between them or operate both simultaneously. Four ports are available, so you can select the right speakers for the source at the touch of a button.
Reduced noble design
With its reduced noble design, this Vollverstärker is completely in the tradition of legendary Yamaha HiFi components. The aluminum Gehäuseis designed in a noble Hairline finish and also features an intuitive arrangement of the controls. The knobs also feature the same luxurious build as our high-end models.
Pure Direct mode for pristine, pure sound
When Pure Direct mode is activated, the signal bypasses the bass and treble control, balance and amplifier buffer circuits. This improves the sound quality without compromising the maximum output power. The shortening of the signal path increases acoustic purity and enables reproduction of even the finest musical nuances.
The subwoofer connection can be used to enhance the system’s low frequency response for a more powerful sound with better quality.
Phono MM connector
A turntable with MM phono module can also be connected. Enjoy vinyl recordings alongside CDs and experience the interplay of the latest digital and analog technology.
Connection for a YBA-11 Bluetooh Wireless Adapter
With the YBA-11, you can stream music wirelessly from Bluetooth-compatible smartphones, tablets, or PCs. Thanks to digital connection and aptX® algorithm, you can enjoy music streaming in the best sound quality. The YBA-11 can be conveniently powered via the DC output on the rear panel of the Verstärker.
Digital audio inputs for TV and/or Blu-ray player
The A-S301 has both an optical and a coaxial digital input. The optical input is for the TV sound, the coaxial one for the Blu-ray player sound. The signal remains digital throughout, ensuring pure, dynamic sound from all sources – from sports and other TV broadcasts to movies and concert recordings.
Auto standby function
The power saving function of the Verstärkerdetects when it has not been used for a long time (about 8 hours) although it is switched on. In this case, the device automatically switches to standby mode – minimizing power consumption if the Verstärker is accidentally left on.
