Designed, Built and Tuned for Truly Exceptional Music Reproduction Performance
The CD format has been with us for about 25 years, andeven as new media emerge, it retains its popularity.
Nowadays, multi-disc players are common and CDs can also be played on DVD players, but nevertheless, audiophiles still want dedicated single-disc players that offer the highest possible quality.
Yamaha answers this desire with the CD-S1000 - capableof playing CDs and Super Audio CDs, it is designed and built with extreme attention to every detail, for exceptionally accurate music reproduction, with nothing added or lost.
The CD-S1000 inherits the high sound quality design ofthe CD-S2000, but without balanced output circuitry.
The basic design features that earned the CD-S2000 itshigh reputation, such as the use of differential DACs for high conversion precision with low noise, the ultra quiet loading mechanism and High Precision CD Drive are present in the CD-S1000.
What really sets the CD-S1000 apart from its competitors; however, is that above and beyond the excellent electronic and mechanical performance, Yamaha designers have tuned the sound with a musician's sensibility.
Unlike, for example, new format DVD players that are as close to being computers as they are to audio components, the CD-S1000 was built by people who thought of it as a musical instrument.
The difference is apparent, especially when you pair it with the A-S1000, which will give you the finest CD sound quality you've ever heard.
Differential D/A Converters
The CD-S1000 uses high-grade differential D/A converters for the left and right channels, with their output assigned separately for plus and minus
Developed by drawing on Yamaha's long experience in digital technology, they ensure the highest conversion precision, aswell as outstanding S/N ratio and dynamic range.
All other components, including the analogue circuitry, were carefully selected based on extensive listening tests.
Comprehensive sound tuning, encompassing even the mechanisms, means that you will enjoy incredibly dynamic andpowerful CD reproduction.
Ultra Quiet Loading Mechanism and High Precision CD Drive
The mechanism that picks up the signal is actually analogue, even during the digital reproduction of a CD.
So its degree of precision has a surprisingly large effect on the reproduction of the digital signals and the final sound.
The CD-S1000 features an ultra quiet loading mechanism, which uses Synchro Mesh rather than noise-producing gears, for ultra quiet tray movement as well as extremely high durability.
The rest of the mechanism is also top quality, including a highly reliable brushless spindle motor and a diecast aluminium tray that is completely free of vibration.
The thick steel and wood chassis is very heavy and stable, far superior to ordinary types made partly of plastic.
The CD-S1000 provides the Pure Direct circuit that is a popular feature of Yamaha amplifiers and receivers.
Since it has separate analogue and digital sections, the same as a good amplifier, the designers decided to make use of Yamaha's amplifier technology to help achieve high sound quality.
When Pure Direct is on, the display is turned off and digital output shuts down, providing the highest possible analogue sound quality.
Like the A-S2000 and A-S1000 integrated amps, this player has a left-right symmetrical design with rigid construction,including a reinforcing bar in the centre.
Its specially designed feet stabilise the earth connection and provide superior protection from external vibration.
Specially Designed Feet
The base is equipped with height adjustable, solid steel feet that maximise stability and thoroughly dampen any external vibration.
Super Sound from Super Audio CDs
The CD-S1000 is capable of playing Super Audio CDs, for an even more dynamic listening experience.
