Blending the finest sound with superb construction plus plentiful features, the Yamaha AS301 offers a complete package.

Putting sound first

The Yamaha A-S301 directly benefits from Yamaha's ToP-ART and ART construction, which ensures that left and right channels are perfectly symmetrical throughout the design and signal paths as short as possible. This meticulous attention to detail offers the highest precision and lowest distortion possible.

Quality construction
Complementing this circuit design is ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) construction. Featuring a reinforced casing and damped base support to reduce mechanical vibration, it all helps improve the precision and detail of the sound. For the ultimate in audio purity, the Pure Direct switch bypasses the tone and balance controls for an even more detailed, true-to-life sound quality.

Bluetooth and digital inputs
With hi-fi systems being asked to handle more and more digital sources, Yamaha has equipped the A-S301 to cope with ease. Both optical and coaxial digital inputs are on hand to connect up your TV, CD player or other source with a digital output. Add the optional Yamaha YBA-11 Bluetooth receiver and you'll be able to effortlessly link up your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth equipped device, giving you simple, wireless music streaming.

Plenty of connections
In addition to the digital connections, the A-S301 comes with a wide range of other sockets. There are five line level inputs, two recording loops and a phono input for your turntable. More unusually in a stereo amplifier, there's also a subwoofer output. There are two sets of, separately switched, speaker sockets and a headphone output. A remote control that will also operate other Yamaha devices is included, too.

For an amplifier that sounds great without skimping on features, the Yamaha A-S301 deserves to be on your shortlist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many features The amplifier meets all my Hi Fi requirements that I wanted

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yamaha AS301 The Yamaha AS-301 is an awesome amplifier for the money and certainly much more robust than the Pionner A30....an amp I only used for about a week before the power unit packed up. The Yamaha sounds great, looks great and has some other nice features such as the capability to have two sets of speakers and a really nice pure direct feature. Really nice amp for the money and a brand I've overlooked for years, give them a go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great value Purchased this to pair with some Q Acoustic 3010. Sounds amazing. Needed the digital input for my blu ray player. The Pure sound direct mode is great for movies, really makes the voices stand out, which was always something I struggled with using the built in speakers. I don't recommend the pure direct sound for music as it loses is "body" for lack of a better word. It doesn't seem to get hot under extended use either, but I have left it loads of air flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what was needed I am finding the quality of the sound unbelievable for the price paid. The simple set up and numerous channels also make the unit very viable going forwards as my hi fi expands. I like the multi room (speaker) options as well as the option to have "Pure sound" Great piece of kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant piece of kit for the money This amp does everything you could want from an entry level model to a standard beyond what you'd expect. On the face of it, this is comparable to products from the likes of Cambridge Audio, Pioneer etc. However, it has some great features which ensure it will stay with you as your setup evolves. Unlike some of its peers, it has 2 different output modes to accommodate speakers with different ohm ratings; multiple inputs including optical and coax, and a separate output for a sub. The effect of this is very much a product which is future-proofed to changes you may make to your setup. Alongside this, the sound is clean and balanced, making this a versatile option whether you want to use it with a record player, as a DAC for your laptop or as part of a more integrated system. On the face of it, there is little to separate amps in this price band, and this is a big unit. But there are definitely no complaints here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound for the money I have owned an AS501 since they were first released so when I was looking for something a little less powerful for my study I had no hesitation in buying the lower rated product. Excellent sound quality for the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality sound, good value This replaced a very old amp that I bought many years ago. I bought it because it looked streamlined and classic. And I needed a number of connections for other equipment. It fitted my price range. I was pleased to find after I had connected it all up that the sound quality was really good. It feels robust and I like the fact that I can switch two sets of speakers on and off separately.
