Customer Reviews for Yamaha A-S2200 Integrated Amp
When I was looking for adequate power in the $5,000 to $6,000 range for my Bowers & Wilkins 702 Signature speakers my concern was whether the power unit could handle low impedence down to 2 ohms. The B&W's are rated at 90 db but they are power intensive and while a lesser amp could power them nicely, a larger amp provides deeper bass and texture to these amazing speakers.
The Yamaha engineers are so confident about this amplifier that it is rated down to 2 ohms and with large capacators and a stable torridal transformer, the A-S2200 pushes sound quietly and is rated at 105 watts per channel, 190 at 4 ohms and 220 at 2 ohms. It powers the 702 Signatures without breaking a sweat and at $4,500, is built like a tank.
One note: it is a classic analog A/B amplifier with ultra modern componants but no DAC or streaming....I added a McIntosh MB500 streamer in the aux input and solved that issue. The MM/MC built in is a nice touch but I still use an external MC step up as I find separates are better in sonic quality, but it is a nice, efficient upgrade. The only other nod to modernity is the XLR input (using the McIntosh with those).
Frankly, there is a reason the A-S2200 is often out of stock or on backorder: it simply goes about its business in an uncolored and quiet manner. The ability to handle low impedence at this price point makes it a value in this class.
Very pleased and again, World Wide Stereo delivers on customer service.
