RE: 2013 - new hifi products

I was doing a bit of digging re: Yamaha AS2000, and to my surprise stumbled upon this new product for spring 2013 ... (also mentioned in you last post) .... looks like a Luxman ...

It certainly does Rick ... would you have any information on pricing ... I imagine it's north of the (increased) £1500 the AS2000 is now going for.

Ooh, I like it. If only it still had the wooden cheeks too...

Not out in the stores yet here in Japan, but I look forward to seeing it.

So they do make them like they used to. A drop dead gorgeous piece of kit IMO. Would love to hear one...

I wonder how well it would drive a pair of ATC SCM 19s?

Well spotted. I'd prefer the timber look, but that may well be coming. I couldn't find much on the amp. There was more on English sites than Japanese sites...

I heard that the Yamaha is going to be priced around €4500.00 which to me is astonishing.

My expectation is that it might sit around the £2-£2.5K bracket ... given that the 1000 is at £1K, the 2000 is at £1.5K. The average price of the AS2000 has risen from around £1200 back up to £1500 recently maybe because of limited supply or maybe to introduce some logical pricing structure relative to the new model.

I think it looks very nice in piano black ... which is a shame because I have one of these ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and not one of these

Thanks but no thanks!

I'm going to wait for Clive Sinclair to launch a new amp, personally.

Looks very 70s, classic Yamaha styling, particularly the tall thin switches.  Very nice indeed.
