YBA has an active and increasing presence in the press and at shows internationally.

We have included a list of published reviews which is constantly updated. The reviews are listed first by product category and then alphabetically by country where applicable. Many are in the national language of the country where published and regrettably we cannot always have translations available.

To learn more about the reviews please contact the YBA distributor in the country of publication or where possible check the magazine website. Online reviews have direct links.

This review’s real surprise is without a doubt the YBA A100, ……. with a fascinating open and

colourful way to play and a fantastic 3-dimensional presence in the sound. Must be heard!

 ***Reviewer’s comment:

Nobody builds amplifiers like Yves-Bernard Andre…..My conclusion: Music presented by the

PRE5 and A6 is free and relaxed, while full of sensitivity and  energy. Yves-Bernard André has

over four decades of experience. You can hear that it’s fantastic
