Reviewers from whathifi have found the following***:
Yamaha A-S3200 is a well-equipped integrated high-end stereo amplifier. The phono stage sounds lively and has us playing record after record thanks to the combination of finesse, control and detail. It's a shame there's no electrical loading adjustability to optimise the results for any specific cartridge.
