  1. Yes i did run the Yamaha A-S2100 with the Dali opticon 8s which still sound good but found there was more of a bolder sounding sound-stage with the Yamaha A-S3000 but also sounded good at lower volumes . But also drums came across a bit more punchy
  2. A while back we had a post about HDMI cables and a lot of you thought that it did not mater if you brought a cheap HDMI cable as they all did the same thing as a expensive HDMI cable but i said it was important to buy the right HDMI cable so if you want the full bandwidth to get the correct information to your TV screen so choosing the correct HDMI cable is important and here is the science and proof in what i was talking about back then if you got the time to watch the video .
  3. Its a very Heavy amplifier but also sits back a bit on the rack but i brought a heavy duty Av rack to put mine on but want anymore info let us know i will help if i can but i will say for me the Yamaha A-S3000 is an end game amplifier for me as i am very happy with it .
  4. Hi the Yamaha A-S2100 is a very good amplifier still as i was going to keep mine even through i brought the Yamaha A-S3000 but felt at the time it was a waste keeping the Yamaha A-S2100 . I find the Yamaha A-S3000 has a much bigger sound stage with my Dali speakers then the Yamaha A-S2100 did with a much bigger bolder sound with a little bit more punch but both amplifiers are on the neutral sounding side so not much changes there but it has been 2 years since owing the Yamaha A-S3000 so got used to its sound . I am glad i brought the Yamaha A-S3000 it is a beast of a amplifier and i do recommend one to anyone regardless of the new model coming out because i cant see what the difference is between the old one and the new Yamaha A-S3200 so there should be some good deals around for the Yamaha A-S3000 at the moment like this ..... Spec on the Yamaha A-S3000 ....
  5. Its what you call a well engineered old school amplifier the Yamaha A-S3000 and something I will never change. just for interest what speakers are you using with yours ? As I am using Dali opticon 8s with mine which is a very good match with the Yamaha
  6. Personally I would stick with the Yamaha A-S3000 I have one and it’s built loads better then any Marantz and I used to own Marantz gear but since owning 2 Yamaha amplifiers I haven’t look back
  7. To be honest i am not sure what they have changed on the Yamaha A-S3200 as it looks like they just changed the model number and that is it as it looks just like mine inside and out
  8. Is that a picture of the old A-S3000 ? As the new replacement looks similar to the old model and anyone thinking of buying the old A-S2100 or A-S3000 I would still highly recommend them both . As you would obviously be paying more for the new models as Yamaha has only separated the Pre+ Power to two separate units which you will pay more. But there are some great deals on both the old units which I really do recommend to anyone .
  9. Nice looking deck what arm do you have on yours ?
  10. Well it looks the same but the listing on Ebay says its a Avid Ingenium TA-1 Tonearm
  11. I thought the cart i was using was a MC cart as its been playing on the MC input on my amplifier the stylus i am using is a shure E253 , M75ED , N75ED Elliptical what ever this lot means ? that is what it says on the stylus box also looking at the tone arm it looks like i have a REGA RB220 TONEARM already fitted but the head shell needs to be changed to fit different carts Edit ..... just looked yes i do have a MM and the amplifier is set to MM
  12. I want to go the MM way but currently the deck is fitted with a MC but not sure on budget yet but want a good tone arm that will fit a range of carts but do need the advice as i haven't got a clue whats good or bad so keeping this thread open so i can upgrade the deck properly
  13. Spoke to the seller and he is sorting me out with a replacement board for my deck which will sort out the deck running backwards randomly . need some help or links on which tone arm to upgrade to on this deck ? And do I change the glass platter for acrylic platter ? also what would be a good cart to use depending on which arm I buy but obviously I wanted to go MM as currently I am using MC cart . and what oil do I need for the Bering and also replacement belts
  14. Does this over ride the power supply inside the deck or the board that is faulty so sorts the solution of the deck running backwards ? Because at the moment the deck randomly runs backwards when switching on but not a big problem as i just give it a helping hand spin the correct way
