CD-S2000 Silver

  • Model: Yamaha CD-S2000 Silver
  • Shipping Weight: 15kg

The CD-S2000 features a differential motion D/A converter that succeeds in doubling the conversion precision by using Yamaha’s high precision DAC converters on the plus side and the minus side. The outputs of the plus and minus sides are input into isolated low pass filters, and transmitted in a fully balanced state from there to the output jack. Combining this player with the A-S2000 amplifier lets you enjoy high purity CD reproduction of a quality unmatched in this class, thanks to an absence of transmission noise and related sound degradation.

The mechanism that picks up the signal is actually analogue, even during the digital reproduction of a CD. So the quality of the precision of the drive mechanism has a significant impact on the precision of the subsequent digital signal, and on the final sound. The CD-S2000 uses the Exclusive Yamaha Loading Mechanism with Superior Quietness that solidly supports the CD drive, and a highly reliable brushless spindle motor. The aluminium disc tray provides a luxurious touch matched to the superb sound quality.

The independent power supplies use separate transformers to isolate the audio circuitry from the digital circuitry to eliminate any effect of noise from both circuits. The audio section employs a toroidal transformer that holds down magnetic flux leakage to achieve a stable power supply. Specialised windings on the left and right channels isolate the rated current circuits to the left and right beyond them, achieving superior separation characteristics.

This is the first Yamaha CD player to incorporate the Pure Direct circuit, which has long been provided on our AV amplifiers.
Since this player has separate analogue and digital sections, the same as an AV amp, we decided that using AV amp expertise was a good way to achieve high sound quality. When Pure Direct is on, the display is turned off and digital output is stopped, realising the highest possible analogue sound quality.

Like the A-S2000 integrated amp, the CD-S2000 has a left-right symmetrical design with rigid, stable construction due to a reinforcing bar in its centre. Specially designed feet stabilize the grounding and are very effective in damping external vibrations.

The CD-S2000 is capable of playing Super Audio CDs, for an even more dynamic listening experience.
