Yamaha Expands Hi-Fi Family With A-S Amplifiers & NS-3000 Speakers

Yamaha is expanding its selection with of high-end integrated amplifiers and premium bookshelf speakers with the A-S Series Integrated Amplifiers and NS-3000 speakers. These latest Yamaha additions draw on the company’s long-standing expertise in musical instruments and audio equipment to deliver sound that is true to the original.

“These new amplifiers and speakers combine years of customer feedback, research and development to deliver a reinvented line of amp and speaker technology, with many engineering and patented features directly carried over from our 5000 Series,” said Simon Goldsworthy, General Manager for Yamaha Music Australia’s AV Division. “Music lovers deserve a rewarding and authentic reproduction of their favourite tunes. A pure and truly moving listening experience is never the result of just one component.”

A-S Series of Integrated Amplifiers

Built with stunning craftmanship, the new A-S Series of amplifiers share several features of Yamaha’s 5000 Series, such as their toroidal transformers, which aim to reduce energy loss; mechanical grounding that helps to eliminate surplus vibrations; and thick wires that establish a more solid ground connection for lower impedance. In addition to producing rich sound, each of the A-S Series amplifiers are also stylish pieces that have a modern-vintage aesthetic. Every model is available in black or silver. While the A-S3200 is available now, the A-S2200 and A-S1200 are scheduled to be launched in Australia sometime in May.
