A good solid amp that has been faultless since purchased from Miranda HIFI Sydney back in 1985.
I had two turntables set up to this amp; a Thorens TD 160 super and a Micro Seiki dd42.
Unfortunately never tried a moving coil turntable with her, but the amp had switchable options for this to tailer to many types of turntables. Highly recommended if you want to get back into records.

This amp is a beast...It sounds great and can drive any speaker you throw at it. the only draw back is there are no pre-outs.

re: A-1000 Subwoofer Question

Good Day,
I've had my Yamaha amp since 1984 and was wondering if it is possible to utilize a subwoofer with it. I currently have a set of Klipsch Heresy speakers connected to the amp.


re: A-1000 Subwoofer Question

I added a powered sub using speaker output to the high level input on the sub amplifier. Hope this helps. BY THE WAY what sub are you planning on using?

re: A-1000

Thanks for posting the Yamaha a-1000 service manual. I have owned this amp since 1984 and love it. The direct button is getting dirty/intermittent. I should be able to find the culprit and replace it by referencing the schematic. Have a good day,

re: A-1000

I think is better open the button and clean it, i did it with all the buttons for the same model, it take me 3 days but now the amplifier sound grateful.

re: A-1000

I have an A-1000 since 1984 and love it. I am listening to clasic music nearly every day, and I am afread that it might slovly loose quality over time to come. I notice that the speaker balance regulator scratch a little when I a seldom time turn it. You write that you have cleaned some of the switches your self. How to do this?
I would preciate a tip very much.
