Overview

In the unyielding pursuit of innovation and musicality, Yamaha is proud to present its flagship integrated amplifier – the A-S3200. Meticulously designed from the ground up, the A-S3200 realizes the ambitions of the artist and establishes a new benchmark in high-fidelity audio.

EMOTION

Music spawns from something emotional. A unique, personal story an artist wishes to share. Understanding how music is created, and indeed helping artists to create, embeds in Yamaha’s DNA a fundamental understanding of music, particularly the emotion upon which music creation is inspired. In the development of each of our extensive range of Hi-Fi products, conveying this emotion to the listener is one of the most important considerations.

OPENNESS

Authentic, pure Hi-Fi is less about listening to brilliant sounding equipment and more about that equipment disappearing and the artist performing live in the room. The openness of the music, that feeling of being within reach of the artist, brings the music to the fore, and makes listening to music an active rather than passive experience.

GROOVE

Feeling the music.Not just feeling like you are there, but feeling the story in the music. Feeling the rhythm, the groove of the music. Moving with the music. Only a true representation of the music can deliver this.

MusicCast VINYL 500

A step into the future with a tribute to the past. Meet our game-changing wireless turntable designed for a new generation of audiophiles. Featuring MusicCast multi-room capabilities, share the joy of your record collection in any room.

Toroidal Transformer

large toroidal transformer has been used in the A-S3200 in the pursuit of pure musicality. With less flux leakage there is no negative impact on other sensitive audio circuits, while the copper wire is directly drawn from the winded core, minimizing energy loss compared to other substitutes, allowing the full emotional energy in the music to be felt by the listener.

High Quality Component Selection

Acknowledged for their musical performance and use in high-end home audio products, high-quality capacitors were selected, delivering an authentically musical sound.

Following an intensive forging process, the PC-Triple C speaker wire has an inherently more linear structure, allowing for smoother signal transmission to more accurately present the original musical recording.

Thick Wires for Ground Connection by Low Impedance Concept

Adopting low impedance design concept minimizes both energy loss while maintaining absolute integrity in the audio signal. Preservation of the original audio results in an open, natural sound stage, bringing the listener and the artist together.

Following an intensive forging process, the PC-Triple C speaker wire has an inherently more linear structure, allowing for smoother signal transmission to more accurately present the original musical recording.

Brass Screws and Copper Terminal for Block Capacitor

Adopting brass screws and gilding oxygen free copper terminals for the large block capacitors contributes to superior connectivity, superbly delivering the additional headroom available in the four large 22,000μF capacitors to produce the open soundstage.

Fully Balanced Circuitry from Input to Speaker Out

The fully balanced circuitry used in the A-S3200 yields a number of listening benefits. Delivering impressively low signal-to-noise ratio ensures those gaps in the music, the silence upon which the artist engages the listener into the music, waiting for the next movement, are exactly that – silence. The design also adds to improved channel separation producing a sound stage that almost makes the entire system disappear, giving the listener the feeling of being in the room with the artist, not the CD or vinyl source.

GROOVE

Feeling the music. Not just feeling like you are there, but feeling the story in the music. Feeling the rhythm, the groove of the music. Moving with the music. Only a true representation of the music can deliver this.

Mechanical Ground Concept

An expression of deep, rhythmic and melodious bass generates feeling from the music, the story of the music. The Mechanical Ground Concept achieves this expressive and rhythmic bass by maximising rigidity and reducing any unwanted vibration. The large power transformer, block capacitors and heat sink are directly bolted to the chassis delivering greater rigidity, while the feet, with bolts directly welded to the main chassis, provide further reinforcement for absolute rigidity. The A-S3200 has an original Rigid Streamlined Construction that further suppresses vibration.

Silver Plating Brass Feet

Completing the rigidity of the amplifier are the heavy-duty brass feet used with either spikes or the scratch-resistant base for delicate surfaces, originally engineered exclusively for the flagship M/C-5000.

OTHER

Dedicated phono amp

The phono amp is comprised of an MC head amp and an equalizer amp – each of which are discretely configured resulting in a rich sound with pronounced musicality when playing vinyl records with both MC and MM phono cartridges.

Original Speaker Terminals

The luxurious speaker terminals are cut directly from pure brass and achieve a highly secure connection, effortlessly allowing tightening by the human hand.

Meticulous Switch Design

Use of the elegantly designed switches and knobs on the front panel present more than just input changes or volume adjustments. They serve as a connection between the owner and the engineer, a beautiful, highly-tactile surface reflecting the obsessive care of the engineers, passed directly to the owner.

Exquisite, Large Level Meters

Visually presenting the dynamics and pulse of the music, the large meters imbue a warm feeling through their softly illuminated LED’s. With the glass window diagonally cut and precision-fit to the back surface of the front panel, therefore presenting no gaps or screws for connection, an exceptionally luxurious look and feel is achieved.
