Following on from the award-winning AS500, the Yamaha AS501 offers the same great sound but now with even better connectivity.


Built for power

With a high specification, including custom-made components, the Yamaha AS501 has been designed to fill even the largest rooms with rich, dynamic sound. A large power supply with dual heat sinks ensures a loud and punchy sound without the risk of overheating. Put together, these features give the powerful, 85W Yamaha a majestic sound quality with the scale and range of a much more expensive amp.

Putting sound first
The Yamaha AS501 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 plus digital inputs
With hi-fi systems being asked to handle more and more digital sources, Yamaha has equipped the AS501 to cope with ease. Optical and coaxial digital inputs are on hand to connect up your TV, CD player or other source with 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 AS501 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.

With such a complete spec, the Yamaha AS501 is still very much the amp that has it all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound and feature I bought this amplifier about three weeks ago and the sound is great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top class amp Bought this last week from the Maidstone branch. Managed to get one of the very last in the store. It was an open box purchase having just been used for demo purposes. Todd sorted me out a great deal once again. Really happy with the amp. I've paired it with a Denon turntable and Yamaha CD player, both also bought from Richers in the past six months! Pumps some amazing sound through my B&W floor speakers. Great buy, that I would thoroughly recommend anyone looking for a classy looking sturdy amp to purchase. Also top class service from Richersounds. That's why I will always go back to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRILLIANT EQUIPMENT AND FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE I BOUGHT A YAMAHA AMPLIFIER, A SUBWOOFER AND 4 MINX MINI SPEAKERS - THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY FAB FOR MY SHOP. LOTS OF CUSTOMERS ARE DANCING WHILST WAITING TO BE SERVED! :) GREAT SOUND AND FAB BASS. A HUGE THANK YOU TO TOM AT THE MIDDLESBOROUGH BRANCH WHO DELIVERED EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amplifier I upgraded from an old 80s technics amp which was on its last legs and cutting out every so often. This amp has great power and provides excellent sound, picking out parts of records extremely clearly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge step up in quality I bought this amp as an upgrade and I’m delighted. The sonically the step up in quality is huge. Build quality is excellent. Very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound Bought this about a month ago to take over from my JVC A-S5. I wanted to use optical, and there is a huge selection of inputs. The build is very solid, connectors and controls feel like they will last, and the chassis barely gets warm. Used with Quad ESL-63's, I like the sound and it has no problems driving the speakers. Listening at 'realistic' volumes with various material, this amplifier meets all my needs. I like the progressive Loudness control and find it more useful than a button. To nitpick, I would prefer if the 8 hour timer did not shut the amp down while still playing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Amp! The AS501 was bought to complement a CocktailAudio X100 media hub. This it does brilliantly. The sound is very good and precise.
