I have long been a Yamaha fanboy, and this is my first adventure into their higher line of products. The first thing you will notice is how heavy it is. Make sure to bend at the knees when you pick it up, haha, but in all seriousness it is around 50 pounds, so make sure you have a shelf to support it. The build quality is flawless, and you can see all the top-notch electronics through the vent holes in the top of the case. It is quite something to admire. From the milled aluminum controls on the front, to the high gloss piano black wood sides, to the solid brass speaker connections on the back, everything just screams perfection. Now getting into the sound, all I can say is wow. You can hear every little detail and pick out individual instruments and follow along with them. Everything sounds very realistic and open. Cymbal decay is perfect. The bass is powerful, clean, clear, and sustained. It really woke up my speakers to a level that I never realized they could achieve. I honestly like how this integrated amp is purely analog; no dac's, no wifi, no tuner. Its one and only job is to be an amplifier, and it does that one job extremely well. Components will come and go, but I am positive that this amp will be here for the long run.
