Yamaha A-S2000 Natural Sound Stereo Amplifier

It's not going to run a home theater system, but if you're looking for a great-sounding amp to pair with your turntable, the Yamaha A-S2000 Natural Sound Stereo Amplifier is a fine choice. Apart from its great looks — a metal body, satisfyingly mechanical controls, and wooden panels on the side — it also offers terrific sound, thanks to a proprietary design that ensures balanced signal transmission from input to output, resulting in a more lifelike audio experience. Equally important is the built-in headphone amp, the low-noise phono amp, and the dedicated MC head amp that lets you switch between moving magnet and moving coil cartridges with ease.
