Bottom Line:   
Initially, I felt this amplifier had quite a lot in common with the Pioneer A-605R in terms of power, but the AX-492 delivered a more upfront feel especially when you activate the "CD Direct" switch that instantaneously bypass the tone and input controls resulting to the purest sound possible. It pumps out an easier and more relaxed character when called upon to deliver at high volumes. The bass especially creates a lot of tunefulness, depth and propulsive timing. No wonder this amplifier generates a lot of excellent reviews from audiophiles around the globe. The Yamaha AX-492 is the best choice in value and in performance among its class!

Bottom Line:   
Firstly i've got a problem : the picture in the header is not AX-492 it's an DSP-E492 and this modells are very different, otherway some reviews era about DSP...
About the AX: A very good amplifier in a big box whit good price. The bass response is marvelous, and is't got power. Whit good cables it can be a good friend. I love it.

Bottom Line:   
A very good add-on unit that only has a few shortcomings. No indicator on the volume control, nor does the display show a relative db. number, it just says volume up or down. Hard to tell the setting. Secondly, the unit must be powered up on the faceplate, the remote doesn't activate; rather cheap for a Yamaha. Unlike another reviewer who doesn't use it for stereo, one of those listeners who still separates his home theater from audio listening, I use this unit anytime I have the stereo on. Power is good at 60 watts x3 for the center and rears. The dual sub output is great, and use both a Kenwood Servo and a Paradigm PS-1200 to great effect on all sources, CD-DVD-FM-Video(TV). Note:The Kenwood was a great starter sub, but a M&K150 beckons. Overall a good unit with value for the money. Would rate a 5 star save for the before mentioned traits.
