YAMAHA Integrated Amplifier A-S801 Black. High Strength Chassis Contributes to High Density Sound and High Purity Audio Reproduction. In order to effectively dampen the vibrations that have adverse effects on sound quality, the A-S801 chassis has a double bottom with a 1mm iron plate. In addition, the power transformer and heat sinks in the power amp section are supported by an extremely strong and stable ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) base. A solid centre bar further enhances high rigidity support and vibration damping.
These Yamaha design innovations contribute to superior S/N ratio and natural, rich sound reproduction. High sound quality circuit design based on the ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) concept.ToP-ART Design and ART Base Ensure Optimum Sound When processing and transmission of the audio signal is simple and direct there is less chance of it being affected by noise and distortion. Yamahas amplifier design technology called ToP-ART features an I/O (input to output) Direct Symmetrical Design, with left and right channels organised in a straight, symmetrical layout for highest signal purity. High Quality Parts for Outstanding Audio Performance.
Custom-made power transformer, custom-made block capacitors, two direct signal path speaker relays, onepoint grounding system, aluminium-extruded heat sinks and other top-quality parts effortlessly handle demanding audio signal conditions. The quality of each 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. CD Direct Amplification and Pure Direct Mode for Greater Sound Purity. With a straight connection to the CD input, CD Direct Amplification maximises CD source S/N ratio. Additionally, engaging the Pure Direct mode causes the music signals to travel the shortest possible circuit route, bypassing the buffer amp and the tone, loudness and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation for the purest sound quality.
The A-S801 also feature a new analogue loudness control on the front panel that uses electronic volume for higher sound quality, which lets you adjust the loudness effect as desired. Separate from the overall volume, this controls the balance of the low- and highfrequency sounds, providing full tonal range at any volume level, compensating for the natural loss in the human ear of high and low frequencies at soft levels. Gold-plated terminals ensure a high quality connection that prevents signal loss. The A-S801 have gold-plated speaker terminals and input terminals.
USB DAC Function Supports 2.8MHz/5.6MHz DSD Native Resolution and PCM384kHz/32bit Reproduction. A built-in USB DAC function allows direct connection to a PC and reproduction of today's popular high resolution sound sources. The Yamaha-developed USB device controller IC has its own master clock that eliminates PC jitter for high resolution signal transmission.
The ASIO2.3 Yamaha Steinberg USB driver achieves lower delay and higher throughput. Offering compatibility with 5.6MHz DSD native reproduction and PCM 384kHz/32-bit PCM reproduction, you can enjoy a wide range of high resolution sound sources for high quality sound. In addition, an indicator on the front panel displays easily understandable DSD and PCM playback formats and sampling frequencies. Exceptionally High Performance 32-bit D/A Converter.The D/A converter for the A-S801 is the ES9010K2M from ESS Technology, Inc. We selected this after careful examination of all pointsnot only its high precision processing of 32-bit audio, but also the ability to handle large amounts of audio data with full PCM 384kHz, DSD 5.6MHz native reproduction, strength in the low register, and high quality definition in the high register. Since the built-in D/A converter generates its own master clock, an original Jitter Elimination function is also included, permitting D/A conversion with extremely low impact of clock jitter. Moreover, a 2-channel D/A converter is housed inside the chip, and applies double differential operation. The result is exceptionally high performance and high quality signal output with superior signal-to-noise ratio. 100 watts x 2 channels into 8 ohms (20-20,000 Hz) at 0.019% THD. 4-ohm capability allows use with a wide range of speakers. USB input for music playback from a computer.
Supports DSD (2.8 MHz and 5.6 MHz) and PCM files (up to 32-bit/384 kHz). ESS SABRE ES9010K2M digital-to-analog converter offers superb sound with digital music files.Sampling rate indicator on front panel. ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) combines a symmetrical circuit layout along with anti-resonance construction for high-quality sound with minimal distortion. Pure Direct mode allows music signals to travel the shortest possible route through the unit's circuitry for cleaner sound. CD Direct Amplification mode matches input signals from CD players for higher signal-to-noise ratio.
Optical and coaxial digital audio inputs. 6 RCA audio inputs, including MM (moving magnet) phono input.Bluetooth®-ready with optional Yamaha YBA-11 adapter. Two pairs of RCA recording outputs. Signal-to-noise ratio: 99 dB (CD). Two pairs of gold-plated binding-post speaker connectors with front-panel switching.
