Advanced Simple Technical + Exterior Design

This CD player uses many technologies to ensure fantastic sound quality when playing CDs, including variable-speed buffering that stabilises disc rotation, reducing the potential for vibration and mechanical noise during playback. The visual aesthetic of this player is a simple yet luxurious design, shared by other Yamaha HiFi components, such as a slim disk tray and aluminium rotary knobs on a hair-line finished aluminium front panel.

Your favourite internet radio station, DAB and FM broadcast channel or any other music source you’ve pre-registered starts playing immediately.

Natural PWM-Type Digital Power Amplifier

In order to vividly portray absolutely everything in various high-resolution sources, from delicate performance detail to the high energy dynamic musical passages. Yamaha has included a built-in amplifier, a digital power amplifier that is capable of 70 watts per channel. Natural PWM type digital modulation with an extremely simple circuit configuration provides both natural, uncoloured sound, whilst being highly efficient.

The low-pass filter, at the later stage of the power amplifier, which has a significant impact on sound quality, is a large coil made of low-loss, low-distortion OFC (oxygen-free copper) wire material. By employing the large coil, it simultaneously maintains the clarity of high-resolution sound sources, whilst the improving power of the bass and ensuring warmth in the mid- and high-frequency components, to deliver high-quality sound reproduction, rich in musicality. Thia system also features a Pure Direct Switch, which bypasses the tone/balance controls and a back buffer amplifier to improve the clarity of the output sound.

DSD Native + PCM Compatible

This system has a built-in DAC, which is exceptionally high-grade, so it can reproduce high-resolution sound with all their original quality. The DAC is compatible with native playback of  DSD 5.6MHz (DSD128) format or 384kHz/32-bit playback which records music information with extraordinary detail by having a sampling rate of 5.6MHz. The DAC (SABRE 32 - ES9010K2M) is the 32-bit, 2-channel specification, from the U.S. company, ESS Technology, and its USB device controller IC is the latest product from the semiconductor firm XMOS. By restricting shutter noise through asynchronous transference, this delivers pure reproduction and optimum sonic quality.

High-Resolution Sound Sources

Another major advantage of the USB DAC functionality is that it allows it to be used as a high-quality headphone amplifier for computer audio. The internal DAC extracts the quality of high-resolution sound, presenting you with pure, intimate details of high-quality sound. The outer cabinet is distinguished with a black mirror plane piano finish, which radiates a beautifully deep, lustrous shine.

This draws on manufacturing methods for musical instruments: taking advantage of the sound and of the original acoustic resonance of the materials, and crafting a finish by employing a coating process identical to that used on a Yamaha grand piano. The result is a natural sound that allows you to actually perceive the feel the touch, and sensation as well as timbre of each individual instrument. Therefore, it is the beginning of an extravagantly elegant musical time.

Crystallization of Craftsmanship Finish

The uncompromising work done in producing a Yamaha piano finish spares no effort or time. For example, with the coating procedure, the under-coating and top-coating, are divided into three or more repeated coatings, whilst controlling the depth of the membrane, at the micro-order, with the final process actually having fourteen coatings.

The drying periods between coatings are precisely controlled, with the polishing and grinding repeatedly done with the utmost care before proceeding to the next coating step. Such care is taken with the final finish, that more than half of the coating process is completed by hand, using highly skilled experienced workers. The rich, lustrous appearance with such profound depth is the crystallisation of craftsmanship nurtured by the art of Yamaha's piano making heritage.

Equipped with Pure Aluminium Diaphragm Woofer

The diaphragm of the 13cm (5-1/4”) woofer is made of quality aluminium that is over 99% pure. Its light weight and high rigidity obtain a superior response for rich and high-density delineation of the texture, atmosphere and tone colour of each musical instrument.

Another major feature is the capacity for delineating details in the natural sound image, even including depth—such as the positional relationship of each musical instrument in a jazz piano trio. The 3cm (1-1/4”) soft dome tweeter, made by coating the diaphragm and applying unique moulding technology, delivers both exceptionally high-range reproduction capability and a rich breadth of sound from high-resolution sound sources.

High Rigidity Cabinet that Revives Instruments

It features a highly rigid cabinet with full three-way mitred-joint construction that connects all angled parts that are crucial to cabinet strength based on the wedge principle. Yamaha’s traditional know-how nurtured by its long history in musical instrument manufacturing skillfully controls reverberations of the sound indispensable for music while achieving high rigidity that prevents unwanted resonances.

Following the meticulous polishing carried out to make invisible the joints between surfaces, the unit is given a beautiful piano finish. Sections of the network circuit and the internal wiring are composed only of the highest quality parts and materials, carefully selected by meticulous listening tests. Moreover, large speaker terminals compatible with banana plugs have been gold plated to suppress transmission loss and change over time.
