The new premium amp is geared toward true audiophile customers.
"If you are passionate about music, listening to your favorite artists and songs can be intimate and nostalgic. By delivering a full spectrum of sound to faithfully reproduce the emotion and dynamics of these recordings, the A-S1100 delivers an elevated audio experience to this discerning audience," said Bob Goedken, general manager, Yamaha Corporation of America, AV Division. "The A-S1100 creates a closer relationship between the music and the listener, which is essential for an inspiring musical experience."
The A-S1100 features Yamaha's floating balance power design, MOSFET amplifier technology, and a large-capacity EI-core transformer to deliver dynamic and natural sounding music with strong bass. Likewise, the amp features a left-right symmetrical chassis design with the power supply in the center and the amplifier sections at each end to offer superior 2-channel stereo separation. Finally, the device is designed with turntables in mind, offering a built-in phono preamp that provides rich sound when playing vinyl records with MC or MM phono cartridges.
Yamaha's A-S1100 is expected to start shipping in early September for a suggested retail price of $2,999.
