The elegant appearance of the Yamaha NS-2000A is inspired by Yamaha's pianos. Their signature gloss finish has been adopted on these speakers, using the same process as used on their grand pianos, a process reserved for a limited number of Yamaha products. This elegant finish presents the speaker as a stylish piece of furniture, providing a gratifying feeling both when listening to music and even when not.
Perfectly Unified Tone
Yamaha delivers the audio of musical instruments just as they sound when played. As a world-renowned musical instrument brand, Yamaha is relentlessly committed to this mission. We created flagship speakers under the design concept of having consistent tone color throughout the entire frequency spectrum and applied unique technology to achieve it. For each and every one of its speaker units, the NS-2000A employs the newly developed Harmonious Diaphragm™ — made from a blend of ZYLON®, which has excellent sound velocity and minimal internal dissipation, and spruce, which is actually used in the soundboard of Yamaha grand pianos and is essential for emanating sound. This ensures accurate, faithful tonal expression throughout the entire audio spectrum, making the harmonies of the sound stand out and the music richer and more beautiful.
Highly Musical Vibration Control
The basis for producing excellent sound—determining what makes the enclosure sound and where to suppress vibration—is virtually identical whether making musical instruments or making speakers. The cabinet construction of the NS-2000A incorporates state-of-the-art speaker design technology that makes full use of laser vibrometers, used in musical instrument research and development, and sophisticated FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis. The cross piece of the cabinet has been optimally reinforced, ensuring solid low-frequency response, providing a secure, comfortable musical foundation, and expressing the vastness of the sound stage without anything being lost. S/N ratio, and an overwhelmingly expressive power that perfectly draws out the sound of any musical instrument.
Faithful Musical Presence
Conventional speakers use a large amount of sound-absorbing material to eliminate standing waves inside the cabinet. Unfortunately, doing so also removes much of the inherent freshness of the music. In the NS-2000A, we’ve employed Yamaha's patented Acoustic Absorber resonator tube to eliminate standing waves, and yet minimize the amount of absorbing material, so that the original realism of music that tends to be lost by sound absorption is reproduced with full energy and dynamism.
Total Music Reproduction
Yamaha's patented R.S. (Resonance Suppression) chambers are mounted on the back of the tweeter and midrange units in order to faithfully express even the finest nuances of musical instruments and voices. Two specially shaped tubes cancel out unwanted resonance generated behind the diaphragm without relying on conventional sound-absorbing materials. This revives the natural sound and maintains the minute musical nuances in the original source.
Seamless Sonic Performance
Representative of the flagship series, the NS-2000A adopts the highest quality parts for the crossover circuit. The MCap® SUPREME Classic audio capacitor made by Mundorf of Germany, renowned as the pinnacle in audio-use capacitor, is used along with a huge woofer coil.
Cut from pure brass, the large, screw type speaker terminals allow for easy and firm tightening, making a highly secure connection and delivering absolute signal integrity.
The speaker terminals feature an original design, with a shape that comfortably fits with human fingers for a luxurious feel, while simultaneously allowing for effortless tightening.
