-Yamaha AS500 Amplifier
The new Yamaha A-S500 integrated amplifier offers the look and feel of the top-class A-S2000, with elegant aluminium front panel and silky touch volume/selector knobs. You can feel Yamaha's commitment to quality when you touch the knobs.
The Yamaha AS500's ToP-ART Sound Quality Design (Total Performance Anti-Resonance Technology) design uses a symmetrical layout for accurate sound field reproduction and the ART Base to eliminate effects from external vibration. When playing through the Yamaha AS500 amplifiers' Pure Direct mode, music signals travel the shortest possible route, bypassing the buffer amp and tone, loudness and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation for the purest sound quality.
The quality of each AS500 individual part, as well as how they work together, basically determines the sound quality of any component. Yamaha uses only very high quality parts, carefully selected and tested. Our ears lose sensitivity to high and low frequencies at low volume levels. This control lets you turn down the volume while maintaining the optimum frequency response.
The Yamaha AS500's optional iPod dock has an independent power supply to prevent operating or charging current from the iPod from flowing into the amp ground signal. This ensures optimum iPod sound quality. An unbalanced interface is subject to common mode voltage noise, so Yamaha uses a balanced system to receive the iPod signal. This makes a significant contribution to reducing noise in the system for higher sound quality.
