    I have a Yamaha AS 1000 ,bought it about 1 and a half years ago and I love it, even though it had to be sent to New York for warranty repair it was gone 4 weeks and works great. Bought it from Amazon, next time I'm going to a high Fi store in town. I'm really looking to upgrade to the Yamaha AS 2100 any one know how much of a difference there is between the two amps, I know the wattage are the same but the circuitry is much better? Looking for input from anyone.

    I can't speak for the as1000, I haven't heard it. With my as2100, now powering a set of dynaudio focus 260s - I think my weak link now is the source, blue sound node 2 using node dac, but as I have it at the moment there are constantly songs on tidal making my jaw drop. I am so happy with the sound and I cannot fault the amp. It only gets warm, never hot. An old Cambridge I used to own got very hot quickly by comparison.

    I have a Yamaha AS 1000 and wanted to upgrade to the Yamaha AS 2100 so I purchased it 8 days ago from a very reptible HIFI store in town, he said it would take about 10 days to get here. Is 10 days normal for a delivery of an amplifier like this, I'm going to call them today to check on the status of it. I didn't want to order it online because of the issue I with the 1000 and having to send it off for warranty repair taking 5 weeks for repair. It dose work great but it got really frustrating with dealing with the online issue so that's why I went to the HIFI store in town.

    Seems about right, they just login to their distributor's site and order like we would do from an online retailer, it gets shipped to them and then sold to you. So figure 4-5 days for ground shipping UPS/FedEx, a day or to for ordering processing with a few days of leeway.

    Since you had your 2100 for awhile and I just got mine yesterday I have about 8 hours run time on it what would say is a good break in time for it?
