Within its extensive product portfolio, YBA offers 5 distinct ranges, each providing a variety of options suiting performance requirements and, importantly, budget.

Design, Heritage, Genesis, Passion and Signature are each recognisably distinctive in their own right.


DESIGN

YBA DESIGN is the company’s entry level to a discerning hi-fi market.

This delightfully styled combination of FM/AM receiver, CD player and DAC, whilst undeniably living up to the YBA reputation for quality and performance, offers the more cost conscious buyer the opportunity to experience the pleasures YBA can bring.

The styling is unique and looks entirely different to the remaining YBA ranges. Available only in black and with a cabinet width of 320 mm, the vibrant blue display highlights the attractive appearance.










HERITAGE

HERITAGE from YBA has embraced current trends by including a media streamer in its product lineup. The 2013 innovation to expand the appeal even further, was to include Bluetooth in its media streamer. This range represents the perfect balance between affordable music excellence, intelligent design and technological innovation.

The four products form a superb total electronics package and each is priced at a point which will hold great appeal for those many thousands of people who have aspired to own YBA but whose budget could not stretch to the higher priced ranges.

With their distinctly appealing characteristics, Heritage products not only sound exceptional, but they bring fun to any system setup. The products available in a choice of finishes - silver or black. This is the only YBA range to offer this option.

                        



































































SIGNATURE

Utilising only the very best components and materials and engineered to the highest quality possible, Signature represents YBA’s most exclusive line. These products provide a rarely seen standard of excellence and are acknowledged for their uncompromising high fidelity reproduction.

Each of the three items in the range has a chassis which is assembled using two solid pieces of aluminium casing. The simplicity of their appearance belies the superiority of their performance.

All major components for Signature products continue to be manufactured in France under the watchful eye of Yves-Bernard André. His personal attention to detail in the manufacturing of a Signature product ensures quality of the highest order.

Once manufactured then Yves-Bernard personally auditions each and every product for many hours guaranteeing the sonic signature is exactly as he designed. Each product comes with a personally signed certificate from him attesting to its performance.

The Signature range is a simple one made up of a power amplifier - which is available in both stereo or a 2 x mono configuration, a preamplifier and a CD player.

GENESIS

With the audio market embracing Bluetooth, thanks to virtually every device now including this technology, YBA made the decision to produce a dedicated Bluetooth range .... GENESIS.

This most recent range of products from YBA is simply beautiful - with a black acrylic full length panel housing the display. The overall cabinet styling is similar to the Passion series. The same exceptional heat-sinking has been used on the new power amplifier and looks stunning in its black brushed aluminium finish.

Genesis comprises a power amplifier, pre amplifier, phono pre-amplifier, integrated amplifier and CD player, There is such a large array of devices used these days for music storage, and virtually all of them incorporating a Bluetooth streaming option, Genesis has been developed to give you the best results possible from this very convenient way of listening to music.       

PASSION

YBA’s Passion line is dynamic, lively and exciting.

The realism of the live performance is immediately evident the second you start to enjoy these wonderful products - so good in fact you will find it hard to take yourself away from the music. As a music lover you will appreciate the subtleties and transparency of the Passion products - qualities which have been synonymous with YBA since its first beginnings.

The Passion range incorporates a separate pre and power amplifier, an integrated amplifier, a phono preamplifier, a CD player as well as a CD transport.

An innovative upgrade introduced late in 2014 into our Genesis, Passion and Signature products provides the possibility to switch off power to the digital sections if you are a purely analog devotee.

There is no doubt these products allow you to experience your “passion” for music to the full.
