Yamaha A-S2000 Amplifier

The Yamaha A-S2000 is the world’s first integrated amp to offer full-stage balanced transmission, combining high power output with excellent sound texture and outstanding S/N performance!

Yamaha has once again innovated with a new approach to amplifier design. This is an entirely new floating and balanced power amplifier that uses power transistors with the same polarity that are not complementary. This allows the amplifier to achieve complete symmetry of pullable operation at the output stage and permits full balanced transmission (amplification) from the input jack to just before the speaker jack — a feature that has long been the dream of audiophiles.

Its capabilities will be heard to best effect when paired with the CD-S2000 Super Audio CD player, which employs the same principle. The Yamaha A-S2000 and CD-S2000 are available in black or silver finish.
