My Yamaha AS1100 has been one of the single best components I have experienced in my hi-fi journey thus far. It is a stunning balance between clarity, warmth, and audio truth. The on board phono stage is exceedingly excellent, and as a primarily vinyl minded music lover I deeply appreciate the commitment to a phono section built in. A phono section that gets to take advantage of a great EI power transformer and sophisticated power supply regulation as well. Also, neat that Fremer shows some Yamaha love here at the 3:40 mark while touring music direct. https://www.analogplanet.com/content/tour-music-directs-chicago-warehouse-mds-josh-bizar Who else out here enjoys their Yamaha hi-fi components as much as I?
