Understanding music is to understand the emotion upon which music is created. The passion and story behind the music that drives artists to create. With unmatched experience in every facet of music creation, embedded deep in Yamaha’s DNA is an intimate understanding of the emotional essence of music and music creation. Conveying the artists’ emotion through our Hi-Fi equipment is a fundamental component of Yamaha’s design philosophy.
Usually reserved for flagship Hi-Fi components, the A-S1200 benefits from the technical proficiency and absolute musicality of a toroidal transformer. Combined with an array of high-end Hi-Fi features and components, the toroidal transformer assists in ensuring the musical emotion is conveyed to the listener.
Gorgeous Level Meters
The level meters are both a nod to the nostalgic era of Hi-Fi, while simultaneously demonstrating the return of pure Hi-Fi for today’s discerning enthusiast. Visually presenting the dynamics and pulse of the music, the level meters imbue a warm feeling through their softly illuminated LED’s.
Thick Wires for Ground Connection by Low Impedance Concept
Low Impedance concept, aided by the thick wires for ground connection, is critical for componentry adopting the badge of premium Hi-Fi. This design concept begins in Yamaha’s premium Hi-Fi components with the A-S1200, helping to present an open, natural sound stage, bringing the artist and listener closer together.
Original Speaker Terminals
Cut directly from pure brass, the luxurious speaker terminals comfortably fit the human hand for effortless tightening, achieving a highly secure connection.
Silver Plating Feet
Completing the rigidity of the amplifier are the heavy-duty silver-plated metal feet.
