Replacing a Yamaha Aventage RXA 1020 with 110W/C
Posted by: Redd from: Central NY on
I was very concerned about the wattage difference 110 compared to 85. Not a concern it was evident upon turning it on. Driving a pair of Def Tech SM 55s, and sub out to a SVS PB 1000. The SM 55s are Bi wired to the 501. I enjoy stereo music most of all so I made the change. Gonna let my Sony Bravia do the switching and use the toslink for TV, Pandora, and all my TV apps, to the 501. I know no surrond. But I really hear a diiference in the 2 channel, this amp has punch, and even seems to give the SVS a bigger bite. Using a Marantz PM 5005 CD player to spin my digital music. The combo of the Marantz and the 2ch 501 is great. I have not hooked the toslink to the Bravia yet so I dont know how that is gonna work out. But as far as stereo music from a good source this is an up grade over the RXA 1020. I will miss the networking to my PC for my lossless digital music, but an XBOX 1 will fix that hooked to the Bravia then Toslink to the 501. The 1020 always sounded processed the 501 sounds real and hard, with presence. Thats it presence what we are looking for in music. I will follow up on the toslink when I hook it up. Great for stereo music lovers.

Great value Amp
Posted by: lovesabargain from: on
Replaced an old Harmon Kardon integrated amp and have been very pleased with my purchase. The focus on this device is the audio and less about video which is exactly what I was looking for in an amp. Have it driving a linear TT, internet tuner, CD jukebox, 2 Bose 601c loud speakers and pre-amp and it works like a champ! Loving it!

Very musical amplifier
Posted by: HiFiFa from: on
I hooked up my A-S501 last week and have been playing music through it probably 30 to 40 hours. The amp seems to have finally settled in. For a few days the bass was weak and the imaging seemed off. Now it is pure joy. I have been using it in Pure Direct mode. My source is Spotify on my computer and my speakers are Tekton Lore Reference. Wonderful staging, the sound is very full and balanced. With my very efficient speakers the sound is very dynamic. Deep bass. Very accurate mids and highs. The amp seems very well built to do one thing. Play music.
