YBA Passion A650 Power Amp


YBA Passion 650 never hides its origins. It’s a music lover’s amplifier that clearly translates Yves-Bernard André’s vision and passion. The 650 has more than enough potency in its design to translate music with power, dynamics, natural transparency and most important, correct timbre and musical imprint. Passion needs no second guesses. Seamless integration of technology in the service of music is evident even after those first few musical notes.

Within its price range Passion 650 offers one of the most complete power amplifier packages that bring not only great sound, but standout aesthetics. In this day and age YBA offers great value and pleasure for both the ears and the eyes! There are eye-catching details like the power output meter on the front panel and the heatsinks on either side shaped into the company name.

The power amplifier rests on three feet; one in front, two in the back, which is synonymous with YBA. The mains power switch is hidden from sight on the bottom panel, towards the front edge. The backlight brightness is adjustable in four steps from the remote control unit, and can also be switched off altogether. The amplifier’s rear panel includes two pairs of gold plated speaker outputs – speaker A has the higher quality sound. It has stereo RCA and balanced inputs plus a mono balanced input if it is to be used in bridged mono mode.

"when partnered with the PRE550A it delivers a sound that’s certainly characterful, but entirely entertaining." 

"the YBA pairing impressed with its combination of smoothness and slam."

"a fine combination of ambience and instrumental focus. The sound is full and warm yet with high levels of detail and no blurring"

"YBA pre/power rises to the occasion with an immersive wash of sound
in which every element is clearly apparent. The bass has admirable conviction."

"That blend of warmth and clarity does a fine job of creating the impression of a very real and palpable performance in the listening room."

"The balance here is sweet and rich, but with no shortage of impact and drama when required – the duo can hit hard, whether with music played in through the analogue inputs or fed via its range of digital connections." 

"Passion by name, and Passionate by nature!"
