Features

"Natural Sound" Concept: Yamaha, with a long history of over 125 years as a musical instrument maker, also has a high reputation for HiFi components. Yamaha's A-S501 integrated amplifier takes advantage of this rich experience and high technological expertise. Based on the concept of "Natural Sound", for reproducing all music as it really sounds, and built with scrupulous care from circuit design to basic sound production, the A-S501 reproduces high sound quality and musically rich sound.

Proprietary Yamaha Technologies: The Yamaha AS-501 integrated amplifier employs proprietary Yamaha technologies for optimum performance and sound reproductions.

  • ToP-ART Design: When processing and transmission of the audio signal is simple and direct there is less chance of it being affected by noise and distortion. Yamaha's amplifier design technology called "ToP-ART" features an I/O (input to output) Direct Symmetrical Design, with left and right channels organized in a straight, symmetrical layout for highest signal purity.
  • ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough): In addition, the ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) Base bottom chassis and a solid center bar provide high-rigidity support and vibration damping.

High Current Amplifier: The Yamaha A-S501 features a dynamic, high current stereo amplifier with low impedance drive capability. The amp is rated at 85 watts x 2-channels, measured from 20-20 kHz into 8 with 0.019% THD (100 watts x 2-channels, measured from 20-20 kHz into 6 with 0.038% THD).

High Quality Parts: Custom-made power transformer, custom-made block capacitors, two direct signal path speaker relays, one-point grounding system, aluminum-extruded heat sinks and other top-quality parts effortlessly handle demanding audio signal conditions. The quality of each individual part, as well as how they work together, basically determines the sound quality of any component. Yamaha uses only very high quality parts, carefully selected and tested.

Sophisticated Front-Panel Design: With a beautifully simple and unique design inherited directly from Yamaha's HiFi audio components, this amplifier also boast an easy-to-operate button layout. The aluminum front-panel has a richly textured silver hairline finish. The control knobs are also of the same luxurious construction as used on our top-end models. The rotary encoder makes it quick and easy to select input sources. The luxury hairline finish material offers a nice tactile feeling. LEDs clearly show which source is selected, so you can easily switch sources even in a dark room

Controls

Pure Direct Mode: The Pure Direct mode causes the music signals to travel the shortest possible circuit route, bypassing the buffer amp and the tone, loudness and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation for the purest sound quality.

Variable Loudness Control: The A-S501 also feature a new analog loudness control on the front-panel that uses electronic volume for higher sound quality, which lets you adjust the loudness effect as desired. Separate from the overall volume, this controls the balance of the low- and high- frequency sounds, providing full tonal range at any volume level; compensating for the natural loss in the human ear of high and low frequencies at soft levels.

Tone Controls: The integrated amplifier features independent bass (20 Hz) and treble (20 kHz) controls so you can increase or decrease the low and high frequency response (+/-10dB). You can also adjust the output balance of the left and right speakers.

Impedance Switch: The integrated amplifier features a rear-panel impedance switch to match the impedance level of the speakers connected. Choose High or Low:

  • High: Select High if using one set (A or B) of speakers with impedance of 6-ohm or higher; when bi-wiring the impedance of the speaker must also be 6-ohms or higher.
  • Low: Select Low if using one set (A or B) of speakers with the impedance of 4-ohm to 6-ohm; if using two sets (A and B) of speakers simultaneously, the impedance of each speaker must be at least 8-ohms; when bi-wiring the impedance of the speaker must also be 4-ohms to 6-ohms.

Simple Remote Control: The clean, simple design of the remote control provides easy-to-understand one-hand operation. The easy-to-use design makes it simple to adjust song volume and order. The remote has a sophisticated looking hairline finish that matches the design of the amplifiers. You can also use the remote to control a Yamaha CD/SACD player.

Auto Power Standby: The amplifier has a power management function that detects when it hasn't been used for a long time (about 8 hours) even though the power is on, and automatically shifts it into standby mode. So even if you forget to turn it off, power consumption will be minimized.

Connections

Gold-Plated Terminals: The Yamaha A-S501 has gold-plated terminals for all of its inputs and outputs. These gold-plated terminals ensure a high quality connection that prevents signal loss.

Analog & Digital Inputs: The Yamaha A-S501 integrated amplifier offers analog & digital inputs for connection of a variety of home audio components.

  • RCA + Phono: The Yamaha integrated amplifier is equipped with six analog stereo (RCA) inputs for connecting external analog audio sources, including a turntable. The Phono input can be used to connect a turntable with an MM phono cartridge to play vinyl records. The unit's Phono input also features a ground terminal.
  • Optical & Coaxial Digital Inputs: The A-S501 is equipped with both optical (toslink) and coaxial (RCA) digital audio inputs. The optical and coaxial inputs will accept 2ch PCM (not Dolby Digital/DTS). The audio stays in the digital domain, giving you pure, pristine dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources, from sports and other programs to movies and concerts.

Recording Outputs: There are also two pair of RCA outputs for recording audio through the amplifier to recording device.

A & B Speaker Terminals: The Yamaha integrated amplifier features binding post terminals for its A & B speaker outputs. You can use the A & B speaker outputs to power two pair of speakers, or bi-wire a single pair of compatible speakers. The terminals are not 5-way binding posts because a plastic collar prevents their use with spade lugs and they are too far apart for dual banana plugs.

Sub Output: A terminal for connecting a subwoofer is provided, allowing you to increase the bass output of your system for a more powerful sound with better overall sound quality

Headphone Output: The A-S501 integrated amplifier is equipped with a front-panel 1/4" headphone output for connecting a pair of headphones (sold separately). When a set of headphones is plugged in, the speaker outputs are automatically muted.

After much online research, the Yamaha A-S501 looks like a solid option to replace our Denon integrated amplifier (90Wx2) purchased in 1988. It was important to us that the new unit be phono-compatible (the A-S501 has an MM RCA input), as we have numerous 33 1/3 vinyl albums collected since the 1970s. [ GEORGE  Feb 07, 2019 ]

great reviews--Yamaha has never failed me [ NELSON D  Mar 08, 2017 ]
A
After hours/days of research I settled on this amplifier because it has three things that every other amplifier in its price range lacks (or has 2/3 options): 1) Phono input - everyone seems to be getting back into records these days and I am no different. This is a step up from the built-in phono pre-amp on my turn table. 2) Built-in DAC - I purchased this to be my man do-it-all amplifier. 3) Subwoofer out - a rarity in its price range.

[ PAULA  Mar 23, 2019 ]
A
Not knowing the specifics of your equalizer, this answer will be general. The S501 does not have a loop built in for effects peocessing; thus, you will have to insert the equalizer between the source (cd, dvd, recorder, turntable) and the input of the amplifier. So - connect your source player to the input of the equalizer and then connect the output of the equalizer to one of the inputs of the S501. Note that the S501 already has some control of the bass & treble available. I don't know about your equalizer but most I've had experience with will have a negative effect on the sound.

EHow to Connect an Equalizer to an Integrated Amp By Candace Horgan ShareShare on Facebook While not as commonly used as they used to be, equalizers remain a popular option for fine-tuning home-audio systems' frequency response. Using an equalizer properly requires a lot of knowledge of your room specs, but you can easily connect the equalizer to your integrated amp, even if it lacks the Tape Loop function most equalizers depend on. Figure Out the Chain Step Figure out the audio chain (how many components you have and how you plan to connect them) in your system. If your only source is a CD or DVD player, or if your integrated amp has preamp-out and preamp-in connections, you can easily make all of the necessary connections. Step Connect your source component with one pair of RCA cables to the input of the graphic equalizer. Use cables long enough to allow you to place the equalizer in your rack. Step Connect the output of the equalizer to the preamp input of your integrated amplifier with the second pair of RCA cables.nter an answer to this question.

Q
How many watts per channel @ 4 ohms?
[ Tyler  Sep 05, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
The manual indicates that the maximum power per channel at 6 ohms is 100 watts per channel - it only gives the minimum watts per channel minimum for 8 ohms and 6 ohms, so for 4 ohms the minimum watts per channel is in excess of 100. Plus the "dynamic power per channel (IHF), which I understand as the maximum at any moment or headroom, is 185 watts per channel at 4 ohms; ironically, in this category the manual does give us the power rating for 8 ohms, 6 ohms and 4 ohms. Again, the manual does not give a minimum watts per channel rating for 4 ohms while it does indicate that it is 85 watts per channel for 8 ohms and 100 watts per channel for 6 ohms. As you can see, as the ohms go down the power goes up, so it is accurate to say it will have more minimum power at 4 ohms than it has at 6 ohms, so it would be in excess of 100 watts per channel minimum for 4 ohm speakers with the ability to produce peak or headroom power at 185 watts per channel for 4 ohm speakers.

I'm aware this has a dac as I own this device, but if I were to purchase a separate dac(I'm eyeing the Cambridge dacmagic) how would I go about hooking this up? Right now I have my iMac to as501 via toslink. Would I be better off using the dacmagic to Mac and avoiding the as501 all together?

A
Looks to me that you would have to use analog via RCA type connectors. If you wanted to connect using one of the digital cables you need to purchase the dacmagic plus.
[ UncleDave7  Jun 06, 2018 ]
Q
Are all of the inputs on the A-S501 such as tuner the same as CD with the same frequency response and no LPF for a pilot signal on FM? Also the Toslink and coax digital are they the same (except different cable)?
[ UncleDave7  May 17, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
I see nothing in the specs that would indicate that the tuner input is any different than the other inputs. There is no mention of a low band filter in the manual so I assume (with 51% confidence) that there is none. The Toslink and coax inputs both accept PCM stereo signals. Any difference between the two would be more a result of the cable you are using. I personally can not tell much difference but then I use consumer-grade cables. The opinion of some reviewers is that the coax is slightly better unless you use a high-quality optical cable - AudioQuest, for example. You can have one device connected to Toslink and another connected to coax and select either from the front panel. Hope this helps.
[ Howard  May 25, 2018 ]
A
Not sure if the frequency response are the same, but the tuner, CD, tape deck all sound fantastic. The Toslink and coax digital are two separate cables of I'm not mistaken.....sorry.

this one can connect to any kind of speakers right? i have intention to by a pair of Bose speaker and i wanna make sure they can work together. thank you
[ Ren  Aug 02, 2015 ]
6 answers
A
I don't have any Bose speakers so, I can't say for sure, However, my advice is to look at the spec.'s on the Bose speakers. Most speakers are 8 Ohm speakers and they may require a minimum amount of power to drive them. For example I have some old AR-3 speakers that were 4 Ohm speakers and required a minimum of 25 Watts per speaker, just to start to drive them. However, it is very hard to find an Amp that will put out the 4 Ohms to drive my speakers. This particular unit has a switch on the back to drive either 4 Ohm, or 8 Ohm speakers, which is what I was looking for. According to the spec's for this unit, this unit will put out 100 Watts per channel @ 4 Ohms, which should be more than enough to drive my speakers. If the Bose speakers are 8 Ohm speakers, which are much more common, see what the minimum spec's are for driving them at 8 Ohms. According to the spec sheet for this unit, this unit will put out at least 85 Watts per channel and I suspect that the Bose speakers requirements will be under that amount, which will be OK, but I am not sure. Check the Bose speaker Spec Sheet to see what the requirements actually are. Another concern would be to note what is the maximum amount of power that the Bose speakers will take. In earlier years, I have blown out some speakers by applying much more power to the speakers than they were designed to take, but fortunately for me the particular speakers that blew were kind of cheap so the lesson wasn't very costly, but I took note for future considerations. Hope this information will help in making your decision. Lot's of luck

Q
Does this unit have a tape monitor loop or some other way to use an (analog) external sound processor? My speakers require the use of a sound processor at the pre-amp level but I am not sure if this amp will allow that.
[ Mike D.  Dec 07, 2014 ]
2 answers
A
I'm sorry, but I don't think that I can answer your question. I do note that there are 2 sets of RCA Out connections on the back of the unit, but I have no idea if they would as a pre-amp. I assume that each set might be able to be used as a tap monitor loop because of the in and out function, but that was not my reason for purchasing this particular unit. I have a pair of Acoustic Research AR-3 speakers that I purchased back in the middle 50's that were some really great speakers for my purposes and I had a Heathkit Amp that I constructed from a kit in the same time period to drive them. My amp lasted quite a few years, but it had old style fuses to protect the device. The old fuses were no longer made and I would blow the fuses pretty regular. So, recently, a recommended replacement fuse was put in the amp and the amp burned. So much for the amp. My main problem was that the speakers were 4 ohm speakers and very few, if any, companies made a reasonably priced amp that would provide the 4 ohms required to drive the speakers. This unit has the ability to put out the 4 ohms and have more than enough power to drive my speakers and no fuses to buy. The holidays are here now and I haven't had enough time to hook everything up, so I don't know how they will work, however, I suspect that the old speakers just might blow before the new amp does. In any case, I don't have an answer for Mike D's problem and I am hoping that I will be able to relive those wonderful days of my youth, when I finally am able to finally get this unit hooked up and operating and listening to my old AR-3 speakers.
