Yamaha AS500 integrated amplifier packs a punch far beyond its modest price, an award winner that inherits technology from Yamaha's flagship A-S2000 along with its retro looks. You can feel the quality when you use it. Dual aluminium-extruded heat sinks ensure effective heat dissipation and help achieve crisp, clean sound.
A Pure Direct feature uses the shortest signal route for higher sound purity with low noise and transmission losses. Gold-plated speaker terminals and RCA in/out jacks are durable and provide highest quality connections.
The built-in iPod Dock has an independent power supply for extremely high S/N ratio and Yamaha’s exclusive "Continuously Variable Loudness Control" offers excellent sound quality even at lower listening volumes.

Best stereo amplifier up to £500, Awards 2010. Yamaha cracks the budget stereo amp nut: a stunningly capable product. Yamaha went far further than most manufacturers and benchmarked this new amp against the very best at this price level. The result of all that work is a clear class leader. Its sound is strikingly clear, having little of the overtly smooth, slightly soft balance of Yamaha's pricier stereo units. Instead, we get a fast, rhythmically taut sound that's as exciting as it is informative. If you want a generously specified amp that you can plug in and forget, it's the 'S500. If you want the most entertaining sound at around £300 it should be your choice, too. Who'd have predicted that? (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
