Yamaha A-S3000BL Integrated Amplifier

Yamaha showed some reference 2-channel products for the audiophiles (with some audiophile-like price tags - the A-S3000BL runs $7,999) and this integrated amp was perhaps the best looking piece of electronics I saw with its old-school power meters showing in the front. I know, you’re probably thinking, well McIntosh has that down pat, but I thought it was great to see another company make use of the design in this age where vinyl’s making a comeback (yes, there’s an isolated phono stage for your analog desires). You get 100 watts RMS, and screw-type speaker terminals of pure brass that ensure a snug connection. To go with the groovy front face plate, a piano black finish is on the sides to cover seven layers of wood material in a super-rigid chassis.
