Big power and natural sound doesn't get any better value than this. The Yamaha AS201 offers more than most at its price.

100W per channel

With 100W per channel, the AS201 is one of the most powerful amplifiers in its class. Details such as placing the power transformer close to the power amp circuit, for low signal loss, helps the AS201 produce a powerful and dynamic sound. If you've got a larger than average room to fill, or difficult speakers to drive, the AS201 should be your main contender.

Yamaha's 'Natural Sound'
Based on Yamaha's concept of 'Natural Sound', the AS201 has been designed from the outset to sound evenly balanced and realistic. Only with painstaking attention to detail, such as connecting the signal and power grounds at one point to eliminate mutual interference, is this possible. Its higher signal-to-noise ratio means you hear more of the music and less distortion. For an even more detailed, true-to-life sound, the Pure Direct switch bypasses the tone and balance controls.

Plenty of features
Powerful sound is one thing, but where the Yamaha A-S201 really scores is in combining this with an equally impressive range of features. The AS201 comes with a built-in MM phono stage, allowing easy connection of a turntable, plus four other RCA inputs plus an audio output. Two independently switchable speaker outlets are also present for running another set of speakers in a second room.

For an amp that gives you more, the Yamaha AS201 is a powerful bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid amp I had a long standing Sherwood unit I picked for free that had given out. With 10inch PA speakers I needed a powerful amp but didn't want to spend the money on very high spec amps. This unit was a great compromise between power, quality and price. Well built and aesthetically pleasing I'm very pleased with the unit. The remote is also good and can be used for other Yamaha units if you have/get them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Amp Very happy with my purchase! My hifi needed help and I suspected a channel had blown on my old Sherwood amp. I installed the new Yamaha amp, attaching deck, cd etc and it sounded great. It's given the hifi components a new lease of life. In fact its the best the system has ever sounded. Great value and a tight powerful sound. Best affordable amp choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha AS201 (black) 100W+100W amplifier Amazing value amplifier with phono input for turntable in addition to the usual CD, tuner and line inputs as well as record/playback RCA connections. I particularly like the sophisticated light-touch button controls for bass, treble, A/B speakers selection and input choice, which are all displayed alphanumerically in the LED display panel. Only the volume control is a large rotary knob with quality feel that rotates twice through 720° between 0 and MAX (=100). There's also a button for 'PURE DIRECT' that circumvents the tone controls. That you get these features and a remote control with 100 Watts per channel of impressively clear, detailed and naturally balanced sound makes this an outstanding bargain, especially taking into account the Richer Sounds saving of £50 on the £219 RRP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Budget amp but big on sound I bought this to replace a Marantz 6010ose KI Signature (a fantastic amp back in the day) that gave up the ghost. I was on a budget and didn't want to spend too much money - it's a basic model but does everything I wanted but the biggest supprise was the punch - I've got it set up with Bose speakers and a basic Teac TN100 turntable - in small room the sound is fantastic - everyone and I mean everyone comments that they cannot believe the sound of this basic system, its crisp and deep with a rich sound. Maybe the size of the room lends itself to this setup but im sure I could have spent twice as much and it wouldn't sound any different. The guys in the Southgate shop were really helpful and didn't try to up sell me something I didn't need. Would recommend to anyone in the market for a budget system that sounds way above the price ticket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha amp A lovely warm amp and an input for a record player all for a ridiculously low price. I'm a happy bunny.
