Darn you're quick , makes me wonder if they'll do a cds5000 for a complete 5000 system

 

Interesting  the amp.is rated at 100w at 8ohms, i would have expected more.

Wonder if you can bi amp? - looks like you could but only via rca outs- only one pair of xlr outs.  Looking at pics , looks like they can be bridged into mono , interesting

awesome stuff

i wish i could have afforded the AS-2100 but i am happy with the AS-1100.

will be keen to see the prices on these.

not sure if i need or will benefit from the pre amp but the power amp and that GT i'll be looking at closely...

I love the look of the Yamaha products, and hope that they succeed.

 

But, like cafe67 I think they missed a trick.  It should have at least 150 watts per channel.  Accuphase's E-470 has a rated

180 watts, Marantz's PM-10 is specified at 200 watts, and Parasound's HINT6 has 160 watts.  Luxman's L-509X is rated at

120 watts which I think is a minimum for an amplifier which is a "flagship".

 

BUT, I don't understand the arm on the turntable.  A straight arm with no off-set on the headshell.  What am I not

getting here?

 

Regardless, I decided I want a full system, especially when and if they bring out a disc player.  Or maybe I'll settle for a

CD-S3000.  How do I set up a gofundme page, or whatever it's called?

If the MX-5000 sounds like the AS range I wouldn’t go near it. I got offered a 3000 for less than $4000 new and turned it down. 

The Turntable I am very keen to hear at the Show.

100%. The AS range was the biggest disappointment for a very long time. It was/is tres ordinaire gear in fancy clothes

Yes they were.  They have even tried to make it look like the DD GT tables of the 70/80's.

I love the GT-2000.

Being that you don’t need a large step down and it’s DD it would take a lot from this table to make me choose it. Going in open minded though.

I bet it will be more expensive than a GT-2000 as well.
