In the unyielding pursuit of innovation and musicality, Yamaha is proud to present its flagship integrated amplifier – the A-S3200. Meticulously designed from the ground up, the A-S3200 realises the ambitions of the artist and establishes a new benchmark in high-fidelity audio.
large toroidal transformer has been used in the A-S3200 in the pursuit of pure musicality. With less flux leakage there is no negative impact on other sensitive audio circuits, while the copper wire is directly drawn from the winded core, minimizing energy loss compared to other substitutes, allowing the full emotional energy in the music to be felt by the listener.
Brass Screws and Copper Terminal for Block Capacitor
Adopting brass screws and gilding oxygen free copper terminals for the large block capacitors contributes to superior connectivity, superbly delivering the additional headroom available in the four large 22,000μF capacitors to produce the open soundstage.
Fully Balanced Circuitry from Input to Speaker Out
The fully balanced circuitry used in the A-S3200 yields a number of listening benefits. Delivering impressively low signal-to-noise ratio ensures those gaps in the music, the silence upon which the artist engages the listener into the music, waiting for the next movement, are exactly that – silence. The design also adds to improved channel separation producing a sound stage that almost makes the entire system disappear, giving the listener the feeling of being in the room with the artist, not the CD or vinyl source.
Dedicated phono amp
The phono amp is comprised of an MC head amp and an equalizer amp – each of which are discretely configured resulting in a rich sound with pronounced musicality when playing vinyl records with both MC and MM phono cartridges.
Original Speaker Terminals
The luxurious speaker terminals are cut directly from pure brass and achieve a highly secure connection, effortlessly allowing tightening by the human hand.
