Yamaha further boasts the A-S3000 was designed-by-ear to create closer bonds between artists and listeners for truly elevated audio experiences.

The A-S3000 offers the ultimate expression of Yamaha’s craftsmanship, featuring anti-vibration and distortion eliminating measures, including a rigid streamlined construction with the shortest possible cabling routes. The components’ classic styling includes clean lines and rich black piano finish side panels along with large eye-catching level meters.
