    Hi

    Which of these two amplifiers (or other suggestions) for a pair of UB5 speakers?
    Yamaha A-S501 or Yamaha A-S701?

    Thanks

    The A-S701 has more power and CD Pure Direct, I assume it will sound best. We always recommend more power. and debating on source the A-S701 would sound better.

    Ive found this page which showed boths’s specs side by side.
    Wouldnt the A-S701 be too much. I would prefer the A-S701 rather than 501 but dont want to damage the speakers.

    Most will say that it’s better to have more power than less. It improves dynamics, and much more…

    In terms of damaging the speaker, just don’t put the volume too high. As a standard test we must run the speaker at a very high volume for a very long time. It’s so loud that it’s not comfortable in an average sized room. I doubt you would run it that long and that loud. SO i don’t you would damage the speaker. I run the A-S801 at home on the UB5 and it sounds great.

    Respectfully,
    Charles
