The CD-S303 offers Pure Direct, which shuts down the digital audio output and turns off the display. This reduces digital noise interference for the highest possible sound quality from the analog output.
High-Performance D/A Converter
Utilizing a 192 kHz/24-bit DAC, the high-performance D/A conversion system takes full advantage of the digital technology refined by Yamaha over the years, ensuring excellent conversion precision, S/N ratio, and dynamic range.
Enjoy Your MP3, WMA, LPCM, AAC, and FLAC Music
The USB port on the front panel gives you an easy way to enjoy high-quality sound from MP3, WMA, LPCM, AAC, or FLAC digital music files stored on USB memory devices. You can also play files recorded on CD-R/RW discs.
The CD-S303 inherits many of the sound quality features of high-end CD player components. Yamaha technicians have devoted themselves to creating sophisticated circuitry, short signal paths, and well-matched high-quality parts to create the best possible sound quality.
A-S301 Integrated Amplifier
Designed for excellent sound quality, with a beautiful appearance. An integrated amplifier with the advantage of digital inputs.
High-Quality Circuit Design Based on the ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) Concept
The amplifier design technology from Yamaha is called ToP-ART which features an input to output with a direct symmetrical design. ToP-ART design and ART Base ensure optimum sound when processing and transmitting the audio signal. The signal is simple and direct, therefore it is less likely to be affected by noise and distortion. The left and right channels are organized in a straight, symmetrical layout for the highest signal purity. In addition, the ART (Anti-Resonance and Tough) Base bottom chassis and a solid center bar provide high rigidity support and dampers vibration. These design innovations contribute to this amplifier's rich audio reproduction with abundant musicality.
High-Quality Parts for Outstanding Audio Performance
Notice the custom-made power transformer, custom-made block capacitors, two direct signal path speaker relays, one point grounding system, extruded aluminum heat sinks, and other top-quality parts to effortlessly handle demanding audio conditions. The quality of each individual part, as well as how they work together, basically determines the sound quality of this component. Yamaha uses only very high-quality parts, carefully selected and tested for their sound properties.
Created by Rich Experience, Tradition, and High Technological Expertise
Yamaha, with a long history of over 125 years as a musical instrument maker, also has a high reputation for Hi-Fi components. The A-S301 is created by taking advantage of this rich experience and high technological expertise. Based on the concept of “Natural Sound” for reproducing all music as it really sounds, this amplifier is built with scrupulous care from its circuit design to basic sound production.
Pure Direct Mode for Greater Sound Purity
The Pure Direct mode causes the music signals to travel the shortest possible circuit route, bypassing the buffer amp, the tone, loudness, and balance controls to virtually eliminate any signal degradation for the purest sound quality.
Continuously Variable Loudness Control
The A-S301 also features a new analog loudness control on the front panel that uses electronic volume for higher sound quality which lets you adjust the loudness effect as desired. Separate from the overall volume, this controls the balance of the low and high frequencies providing full tonal range at any volume level by compensating for the natural loss in the human ear at soft levels.
Digital Audio Input for TV and/or Blu-ray Disc™ Player
The A-S301 is equipped for digital audio inputs with an optical and digital coaxial input terminal. The optical is for receiving audio from a TV and the coaxial is for receiving audio from a Blu-ray Disc player. The audio stays in the digital domain giving you pure, pristine and dynamic sound for all of your entertainment sources.
Connection for YBA-11 Bluetooth Wireless Adapter (Optional Accessory)
With the YBA-11, you’ll be able to stream music wirelessly from a Bluetooth-compatible mobile phone or a PC. Thanks to the digital coaxial connection and the aptX audio coding algorithm, you will enjoy wireless music streaming with optimum sound quality. You can also conveniently power the YBA-11 via the DC out connection on the rear panel of this amplifier.
Speaker A, B, or A+B Selection and Speaker Terminals for Two Systems
You can connect two separate speaker systems and hear them in different rooms at the same time. There are four terminals, so by just rotating a simple selector dial, you can switch between the two pairs of speakers to play the selected source.
A terminal for connecting a subwoofer is provided, allowing you to increase the bass output of your system for a more powerful sound with better overall sound quality.
Phono Moving Magnet Input Terminal
You can connect a turntable with a MM phono cartridge to play vinyl records. Get the best of both worlds whether listening to analog vinyl or the latest digital technology.
Simple Yet Sophisticated Design
With a beautiful, simple, and unique design inherited directly from Yamaha Hi-Fi audio components, this amplifier also boasts an easy-to-operate layout. The aluminum front panel has a richly textured silver hairline finish. The control knobs are also of the same luxurious construction as used on Yamaha's top-end models.
Remote Control with Clean, Simple Design
The clean, simple design of the remote control provides easy-to-understand operation with a single hand. The design makes it simple to adjust inputs, volume, and more. The unit has a sophisticated-looking hairline finish that matches the design of the amplifiers. You can also use the remote to control a Yamaha CD player.
