Left-right Symmetrical Construction, Independent Digital/Analog Circuit Configuration, with Top Priority on Sound Quality

This CD Player has completely symmetrical construction: the rotating loader mechanism is in the center, the digital power supply and circuit board are on the left side and the analog power supply and circuit board are on the right. Completely isolating the digital unit and the analog unit eliminates detrimental impacts of interference between the circuits while achieving ideal weight balance. The center frame that extends from the front to the back of the body, along with a front panel made of 1/4" thick aluminum, increases rigidity of the entire chassis and ensures stable disc play.

Digital/analogue boards with integrated power supply circuits

The internal design of this CD Player does not separate the power supply circuit boards, which include the power transformer; the block capacitors are mounted directly on the respective digital/analogue circuit boards. Thus, an original board configuration which integrates the power supply circuits was adopted. Eliminating cabling from the power supply circuits to each circuit board and mounting directly have the benefit of reducing connection loss, as well as achieving low impedance.

Single-stage configuration I/V conversion circuit enables direct analogue output

To thoroughly eliminate audio signal loss, this CD Player adopts an innovative circuit configuration for the analogue circuit. The signal from the D/A converter is conventionally output as an analogue signal through an I/V conversion circuit configured in multiple stages. However, in this CD Player, the signal is output by a single-stage configuration based on a discrete design of the I/V conversion circuit. This single-stage configuration with high slew-rate sharply lowers audio signal loss compared to a multi-stage configuration circuit, and lowers NFB (Negative Feedback), eliminating any sonic suppression, resulting in a natural, spacious sound.

Independent Power Supplies with Complete Separation of Digital and Analog

This CD Player has adopted a twin power supply transformer method complete with separate, dedicated power supply transformers for the digital and analog circuits. Isolating the digital and analog circuits starting at the transformer step eliminates sound quality deterioration caused by interference and noise between the digital and analog units — a problem that occurs when they share the same power supply. This results in exceptionally clear, low-noise reproduction of analog audio. Moreover, the power supply transformer for the analog circuit is a toroidal transformer that provides stable power supply with low magnetic flux leakage. The stabilized power supply circuit is completely isolated on the left and right sides. This achieves superior separation – a particularly important point in Hi-Fi audio.

High Precision CD Drive for Greater Vibration Resistance and High Precision Signal Reading

This CD Player is equipped with the same drive mechanism as the Yamaha flagship model CD-S3000 in order to perform high precision reading of the vast quantity of audio data recorded on a disc. The loader mechanism is connected firmly to the chassis by installing heavy, specially curved 1/16" thick iron reinforcing anchors in front of and behind the loader mechanism, eliminating the transmission of vibration caused by disc rotation to the circuit board. By eliminating even the slightest tilting of the mechanism, this achieves stabilized rotation and ultra-precise reading. Reducing the load of the servo that drives the pickup and lowering the impact of change of servo amperage on the signal achieves clean signal readout with little impact of noise — drawing out every little nuance the artist has recorded.

High rigidity aluminium CD tray

The CD tray is made of high rigidity aluminium, reducing secondary vibrations due to resonance of the disc and the high-speed motor rotating the disc, resulting in improved audio signal-reading precision and quieter operation. In addition to the smart design and luxurious texture, we’ve fine-tuned the opening/closing action by adding a specially designed meshed wire drive, achieving smoother and gentler operation. We obsessively strove to give the unit a luxurious operating feel that perfectly matches the superior sound quality.

Exceptionally high performance 32-bit D/A converter

The D/A converter for this product is the ES9018 from ESS Technology, Inc. We selected this after careful examination of all points—not only its high-precision processing of 32-bit audio, but also the ability to handle large amounts of audio data, strength in the low register, and high-quality definition in the high register. Since it is constructed with the master clock inside the D/A converter, it is also features an original Jitter Eliminator function, permitting D/A conversion with extremely low impact of clock jitter. Moreover, an 8-channel D/A converter is housed inside the chip, and applies double differential operation using 4-channel D/A converters on the right and left sides respectively. It delivers exceptional high performance and high-quality signal output with superior signal to- noise ratio, since it employs an analogue signal processing circuit with balanced configuration.

Built-in USB DAC Functions and ASIO 2.3 Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver

For optimum enjoyment of today’s high-resolution audio sources, we designed this CD Player with superior D/A conversion and balanced signal output and equipping it with a built-in USB DAC function that allows direct input of digital audio (from a computer, etc.). This CD player supports the ASIO 2.3 protocol to take full advantage of the sound quality of the USB DAC function.

Insulators allow use of spikes or pads

The insulators are crucial parts that block outside vibrations. They adopt Yamaha’s original metal legs in order to maximise vibration control performance. The user can select point installation by applying the supplied spikes or plane insulation with the supplied pads, and use these combined with an interlocking rack if desired.
