I want an affordable integrated that sound open, clear and musical that can run with expensive speakers without showing it`s flaws. So, you could say I want expensive sound - cheap.

Which of the two in the heading is the better with this in regard? I listen to all sort of music, but not very loud.

Type A-S500 into the Search Forum bar. The results should point pretty conclusively to the Yamaha.
You might like to post what other kit it's to go with.

I wouldn't write the 650A off as easily as that to be honest. It is a VERY capable amp and if partnered carefully (to avoid it sounding too clinical) it can work superbly.

Some Richers have audition rooms and stock both amps, so why not organise a demo of both so that you can compare them properly?

And yes, as richardw42 suggested, it would be useful if we knew what your other kit is.

Except for the reviews suggesting to avoid bright partnering equipment, having similar power output etc, how similar are they?
