    I have a Yamaha AS 1000 ,bought it about 1 and a half years ago and I love it, even though it had to be sent to New York for warranty repair it was gone 4 weeks and works great. Bought it from Amazon, next time I'm going to a high Fi store in town. I'm really looking to upgrade to the Yamaha AS 2100 any one know how much of a difference there is between the two amps, I know the wattage are the same but the circuitry is much better? Looking for input from anyone.

    I can't speak for the as1000, I haven't heard it. With my as2100, now powering a set of dynaudio focus 260s - I think my weak link now is the source, blue sound node 2 using node dac, but as I have it at the moment there are constantly songs on tidal making my jaw drop. I am so happy with the sound and I cannot fault the amp. It only gets warm, never hot. An old Cambridge I used to own got very hot quickly by comparison.

    I have a Yamaha AS 1000 and wanted to upgrade to the Yamaha AS 2100 so I purchased it 8 days ago from a very reptible HIFI store in town, he said it would take about 10 days to get here. Is 10 days normal for a delivery of an amplifier like this, I'm going to call them today to check on the status of it. I didn't want to order it online because of the issue I with the 1000 and having to send it off for warranty repair taking 5 weeks for repair. It dose work great but it got really frustrating with dealing with the online issue so that's why I went to the HIFI store in town.

    Seems about right, they just login to their distributor's site and order like we would do from an online retailer, it gets shipped to them and then sold to you. So figure 4-5 days for ground shipping UPS/FedEx, a day or to for ordering processing with a few days of leeway.

    Since you had your 2100 for awhile and I just got mine yesterday I have about 8 hours run time on it what would say is a good break in time for it?

    Hello.
    Time for my impression after using the 2100 for 8 month.
    from the beginning i think the amp sounded a bit dark and dull,that went away after a while and after that the sound has improved over time and today it sounds really great!

    the difference from new to today is bigger than what can be explained with that i am getting used to the sound.

    Earlier i did not belived run in time that much, i have now changed my mind!

    Yes it is a wonderful amplifier I've had mine for about 4 months now and the sound great at any volume and using headphones. It's not highest wattage amplifier at 90 watts, personally I think it's more like 120 watts but it makes up for it in sound quality. I've listen to McIntosh demos in the HIFI store in town before buying the Yamaha 2100 and I can honestly say that the Yamaha can run right with the McIntosh except without the 250 watts the Macintosh puts out. So as far as volume about 11 o'clock on the volume nob on my Yamaha is pretty much maxed for me.

    With my turntable and the Ortofon 2m blue cartridge and my audiotecha M150x headphones plugged into my Yamaha. Well I'll just say it's wonderful music.

    Sorry some of us are have issues with the 2100, I had issues a as 1000 bought new from Amazon ended with a third one having to be repaired under warranty. Than I bought the 2100 but from a very reptible HIFI store in town, perfect no heating up no problems barely gets warm after 3 or 4 hours of run time on it. Not sure if we get a different products online but if I buy another high end amplifier again I'm just not chancing the online thing again spending that much it was really ruff being without that one amplifier for 7 weeks.
