Rated 5 out of 5áby mich1s Excellent all-rounder
I'm no amp expert but I do music for a living and have done for over 20 years. Plugged my Acoustic Research AR44's into this amp and they sound great. Love the pure direct path. Got more than enough power for my needs. Amp is super sturdy, it sounds great - my speakers sound wonderful through it. Remote for power, volume, etc was a really nice bonus touch I wasn't expecting. Tons of connectivity. All for for ú200? No-brainer!

Rated 5 out of 5áby mArTyN01 A lot of quality sound for very little cost !
I purchased this amplifier originally to play music from my PC (as I have an Asus Xonar sound card fitted) to the dining room as ambient background sound whilst entertaining friends. I was so impressed with the quality of the sound I have now wired the amp to my living room so I can also enjoy the music from my PC there. The speakers in the dining room are wharfedale diamonds and those in the living room are original Wharfedale Dovedale SP11's ( now modified with 1 x 12" woofer rather than the original 2 x 7"). This amp stacks up very well against my original and still operating Quad amplification in the living room. I personally have found that the sound produced from this amp is not "bright" as described by some people, but quite neutral.
The build quality and looks of this amplifier are quite exceptional considering the asking price.
Thank you Richer Sounds for giving me the opportunity to own this quality piece of equipment for such a reasonable price (excellent delivery also ! )

Rated 5 out of 5áby anoldturntableuser Best amplifer at this price range and many features!
After reading through lots of reviews, this was the best amplifier I could find at this price (it was also the cheapest on the internet). You get a host of inputs which was what I needed, 2 sets of speakers, bass, treble, balance and loudness controls, headphone socket, sub out and a nice remote. My old AWIA amp gave up after 20 years! It's not a ú500-700 amplifier but its a good entry-level amp - I was on a budget. I also purchased the 50w Yamaha sub to go with it (to treat myself) and with that I think its perfect - makes a huge difference to gaming or music. Sounds great with my JBL and Cerwin Vega speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5áby oldjohn987 Award winning and I can understand why
A very good product at a good price Replaced my trusty denon amp which I have had for twenty years I was struggling to match the smooth delivery and clarity bu the Yamaha did it.
Richer sounds delivered 100% I would have no hesitation in buying
again and again from them,

Rated 4 out of 5áby Marko Hard to imagine anything better for the money
Purchased this amp on the strength of the reviews and awards it has clocked up in the past. And because it has a subwoofer output which I particularly wanted. For less than ú200 delivered in under 48 hours it's hard to imagine why you'd look anywhere else. Sound quality through my well loved Mission 774s and my new SVS PB1000 sub is beautiful.
There may well be better sounding amps out there, but not at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby dexymidnight11 Wow what a amazing amplifier !!!!
Quality robust and durable amplifier with lots style and fashion and with that a back in the day retro style,outstanding case which is constructed very well sounds really great to drive my difficult speakers that I have. Really do like the I pod docking station feature not many amplifier's on the market do not entertain this feature
