With a mighty 100W per channel and the quality to match, the Yamaha AS701 packs a punch.

Powerful sound

Using high specification, custom-made components, the Yamaha AS701 has been designed to fill even the largest rooms with rich, dynamic sound. An uprated power supply with dual heat sinks ensures that the AS701 can produce a loud and punchy sound without the risk of overheating. Put together, these features give the 100W Yamaha a majestic sound with the scale and range of a much more expensive amp.

Sound first
The AS701 is constructed with Yamaha's ToP-ART and ART principles. Top-ART design ensures that left and right channels are perfectly symmetrical, with signal paths as short as possible. This results in the highest precision and lowest distortion. Complementing this is ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) construction. Its reinforced casing and damped base reduce mechanical vibration, so improving the sound's precision and detail. A Pure Direct switch bypasses the tone and balance controls for an even more detailed, true-to-life sound quality.

CD direct amplification
Taking Pure Direct sound one stage further than the AS501, the bigger Yamaha also comes fitted with CD Direct Amplification. Dedicated to the CD input only, once engaged, this optimises the input circuitry for a cleaner, tauter sound. Subtle detail becomes more apparent and the music sounds that bit more natural.

Digital inputs and Bluetooth
With hi-fi systems being asked to handle more and more digital sources, Yamaha has equipped the AS701 to cope with ease. It has both optical and coaxial digital inputs for your TV, CD player or other source with digital output. Taking this one stage further, 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-S701 comes with a broad range of other sockets. Five line level inputs, two recording loops and a phono input for your turntable, plus a subwoofer output make for plenty of options. There are two sets of separately switched speaker sockets and a headphone output too. A remote control that will also operate other Yamaha devices is also included.

With power matched by equal control, the Yamaha AS701 amplifier provides a winning formula.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very high quality amplifier A very good well-built unit with outstanding sound quality, clear and bright (and I am fussy!). I like the large range of inputs available. The only slight downside is that the balance, treble boost and bass boost controls seem to have a rather small range but this is not really an issue in practice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't compare...Don't compare! What do you do when your 1992 JVC Amplifier develops a fault and the phono input stops working? If you can run to £460, the Yamaha AS701 Amplifier will get you back in business. Save time comparing products, as this amp has the features and the power that you are looking for. An excellent purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good amp Bought this to replace a Cambridge audio amp. Much better sound and the variable loudness control makes low volume listening much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait. Ordered this on 23rd of December. I was aware I wouldn't get it for Xmas, and to be honest, didn't think it would be till after New year, due to Xmas store closures, but was more than delighted that it was delivered on 27th December. They kept me informed right up to delivery, so spot on communications. Hubby had been looking at this particular amp for some time, and was so glad Santa hadn't forgot him after all. He assures me he's very impressed with the sound and so much so that even I get to listen to all his albums (again!) only this time, he'll point out things he's hearing for the first time, due to how good this amp is. So thank you.
