Yamaha is just another way of spelling ‘quality’, especially regarding design and manufacturing. Their products work effeciently and will last for years, it really is amazing how they manage to get their quality so consistent. In terms of audio gear, their range is colossal and now that they own Nexo it’s perfectly possible to specify sound systems that contain nothing but Yamaha equipment. Very few people ever regret buying anything by Yamaha, that’s probably the most relevant comment one can make. The engineering standard by which all others are judged.
