Yamaha A-1


The exciting A-1 amplifier is a great tribute to the Yamaha engineers who are unique in that they combine the most modern electronics sound reproduction know-how with the wisdom acquired over many years experience in musical equipment manufacture.

The A1 embodies versatile functions, a sophisticated circuit configuration and carefully selected parts.

The disc switch arrangement, particularly, allows signals from the equalizer amplifier to reach the power amplifier in a direct manner, to achieve a new high quality in fine and delicate musical signals from disc grooves.

Here, the A-1 justifiably claims to be a true DC amplifier.
