$1200 AUD.... I'll take my A-S501 + WiiM Mini which cost $650 total.I think it's priced quite competitive. 800 EUR for a all in one device from a renowned manufacturer. -That looks like a piece of HiFi.
I didn't know. Could be problematic with devices that have a builtin DAC.the A-S501's USB power only turns on in Coaxial/Optical mode
I'm the same as you. But I still think it's placed on the market at a competitive price point as an all in one device. But I would never buy it regardless. The HiFi market is FUBAR unless looking at used goods where much can be had for little. The depreciation on speakers especially is bonkers..$1200 AUD.... I'll take my A-S501 + WiiM Mini which cost $650 total.
Integration is perfect since the A-S501's USB power only turns on in Coaxial/Optical mode which means that the WiiM mini only powers on when the amp is in optical mode...\
Not hating though, i love yamaha equipment.... have both the V6A and the A-S501
Sounds like a case for the Yamaha support to me. It shouldn't happen obviously.The 2nd one i just received and the vU meters on left channel aren’t moving much when i play a mono signal?
That's what i always say. The R-S700 can be had for less than 200€ sometimes. A steal.Nothing under $1000 lately has made me want to upgrade from my R-S700. That was a true bargain even when brand new.
Sure, the A-S700 has the same power supply and power amplifier, so as far as sound and power are concerned, it's the same, but it has no pre-amp/main-in loop nor FM/AM radio. Also it has record-select, which may be interesting for some.Meh a new A-S700 if you can find one as it's pretty much the same thing but new.
