Yamaha’s AS-1200 Has Landed

The arrival of the AS-1200 last year created much excitement, and now it’s back again only this time in a beautiful Silver finish. Not familiar with this particular integrated amplifier? Then read on!   The Yamaha A-S1200 is a dynamic, high current stereo amplifier with low impedance drive capability and perfect for those wanting to listen to quality 2 channel audio from a multitude of sources, including vinyl. It is a dedicated single-ended stereo amplifier featuring unbalanced circuitry from the input to the control amplifier block. This masterfully crafted amplifier includes a discretely configured phono-equaliser and high-precision electronic volume control made by New Japan Radio Co, Ltd., and has inherited many superior and trickle-down features from the more expensive A-S2200 such as the toroidal power transformer and the volume/tone circuit that minimises sound quality deterioration.   It also has as a beautifully simple exterior design equipped with a peak/VU switching type level meter just as Yamaha had back in the 1970s/80s. Power output is rated at a continuous, full-bandwidth 90 Watts per channel with very low distortion specs.   Please note the silver finish is currently only available in our Christchurch store. So please,  get in touch if you have any questions.
