I have had the a-s1200 for a couple of weeks. Got it on Amazon, had to wait a couple of months but they had it for $1,560 new so I couldn't pass on it. Sounds great with my Technics 1500C, E-30 DAC and La Scala 2's.

 

 

Wow -------1560$  great deal for sure , was it used ? ---------these A-S1200 are closer to 2800$ -----

My friend got this deal
and alerted me and a couple forums he's on. He loves it. I passed. I run Yamaha M series, but have other updates in my plans.

  I have to assume the A-S1200 is awesome paired with La Scala II’s.

if you’ve seen this review on YouTube would you say it’s accurate?

This guy is not technical, just his seat of the pants reaction. 
He is a fan of H IVs and used them to demo the amp. I have The H IVs also and wonder if his experience is close to what owners of this amp or the 2200 have experienced?

I've had a Yamaha A-S1000 for 6-7 years now, bought it used. Even though I've replaced it in the audio rack I won't sell it. It is not going to fetch a lot of $$$'s on the used market, and IMO it will outlast the tube integrated that I'm using now for 2 channel. I'm sure my son will enjoy this amp and Salk speakers long after I've checked out. Some things are more difficult to let go of than other things.

 

Internally I think it's the same amp as the S1100/1200/S2000/S2100/S2200, but not positive about that. I think the S3xxx series has more power and slightly different internals. It has a great sounding phono section, probably one of the best I've ever owned, and I've owned a lot of gear over the years. I'm 73yo, started out in this hobby at 18yo when I bought a brand new Sansui 500a tube receiver. Been hooked on good sounds ever since, and I still have decent hearing to enjoy the sounds.

 

I watched that video of Andrew Robinson, his points about the A-S1200 could be said of the A-S1000 as well. I've read some reviews where the reviewer tend not to like the highs in these amps, finding them too bright. I find the highs to be nearly perfect, and especially with a great tweeter, which my Salk speaker have IMO, the Hiquphon OW2, made in Denmark. The name makes it sound as if it's a Chinese brand.

Love mine and it is still in place when I first bought it.

Very true.

It's not the same, more off the shelf parts than the other ones but still a rock solid build.
