Yamaha had to be pissed (I know I would).
And you all seem surprised.
Well $7500 mass produced amp should compare favorably to $30.000 one which the company sells in a single digit examples a year. If they sold thousands the price would be on the $3000 level in the "sane" industry.
It looks like a Yamaha is a lemon...
I have never been impressed with Yamaha but havent heard them in years. I was stating that I am not surprised that Stereophile is guilty of a lack of due diligence.
Yamaha is basically a jack of all trades brand that produces really good products. I'm not certain anything Yamaha is considered "the best of the best" (except maybe some synthesizer products). Of course, I have not listened to one, I wonder how much better the $7500 AS 3200 sounds above the $4k 2200 and $2700 1200. My guess is that the gap is not as big as the price may make it seem. I've heard on various forums, the 1200 is the winner for overall performance and value.
