Famous for their original designed amplifiers of the 80’s, the new Yamaha AS-500 incorporates the retro design styling but takes the audio performance to a totally different level.
Stereo performance of the AS-500 is based on their award winning flagship stereo amplifier the AS-2000, and whilst appealing to the audiophile, Yamaha has also designed it to meet the needs of the modern world and it is fully compatible with portable media playback.
With the optional YID-W10 you can play your iPod wirelessly to the AS-500 via a lossless signal whilst having complete control over the volume, track and playback options.
For a mid level stereo amplifier, the 2 × 85 Watt output offers performance and compatibility that is first class and well worth a listen.
