YPAOTM (Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer)
Environmental factors play an important role in the sonic signature of a room. Yamaha’s own YPAO™ automatic calibration technique, refined over decades of use in Home Theater products, has been optimized for the R-N2000A to deliver the ideal listening environment, as if you were in a professional audio listening room - without requiring any laborious manual setting adjustments. YPAO features precision EQ, which performs exceptionally high-precision equalization with accuracy of up to 192 kHz / 64-bit audio resolution. YPAO™ R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) works in tandem to actively control the important early reflection sounds, automatically adjusting and optimizing how the sound is heard in your room, depending on the materials of the walls and the speaker placement. This means you can enjoy the profound sound and immersive feeling unique to Hi-Fi audio, right in your own living room.
Usually reserved for flagship Hi-Fi components, the R-N2000A benefits from the technical proficiency and absolute musicality of a toroidal transformer. Combined with an array of high-end Hi-Fi features and components, the toroidal transformer assists in ensuring the musical emotion is conveyed to the listener. Moreover, a 3 mm brass base is sandwiched between the bottom of the transformer and the inner chassis to control vibrations in the transformer, delivering an overwhelmingly spacious sound filled with realism.
In pursuit of clear, transparent sound field reproduction while delivering rich and fully detailed level of musicality, we have adopted the state-of-the-art ES9026PRO digital-to-analog converter from ESS Technologies. This high-quality DAC achieves highly accurate signal conversion through the balanced analog audio output and further refined current delivery for four-channel operation, effectively reproducing even the subtle ambiance of concert halls and delicate expressive nuances in the sound.
Low Impedance Concept
In order to thoroughly eliminate energy loss and degradation of the audio signal, the R-N2000A features thick wires for the ground connection a critical feature that establishes the componentry as being truly premium Hi-Fi. In addition, a screw connection is adopted for the output from the power amplifier section in order to strengthen the ground, which is important for audio quality. By achieving these, an open, natural sound stage is realized, bringing the artist and listener closer together.
Mechanical Ground Concept
Just as with the Yamaha Hi-Fi flagship model, the R-N2000A employs the mechanical ground concept. The concept begins with the bolts of the feet welded directly to the main chassis, and continues with the large heat sink, power transformer and block capacitors also directly bolted to the chassis. This design prevents unwanted vibration, resulting in powerful, highly expressive low-frequency response and letting you feel the deep groove of the music.
Chrome-Plated Brass Feet
Completing the solid rigidity of the amplifier are its heavy-duty chrome-plated brass feet firmly reinforcing the rich, foundational low-frequency response and filling it with musicality.
Floating And Balanced Power Amplifier
Equipped with Yamaha's original amplifier technology, the power amplifier circuitry including the power supply is completely independent from the ground, and the influence of minute voltage fluctuations and external ground noise is completely eliminated. A variety of benefits result from this circuit design, including perfect symmetry of push-pull operation in the output stage, attainment of excellent S/N ratio, and an overwhelmingly expressive power that perfectly draws out the sound of any musical instrument.
Pursuing the epitome of stereo reproduction in this component, the R-N2000A has adopted perfectly symmetrical, folding-book construction, with the power supply in the center and the power amplifier blocks at both ends of the main unit. This gives the unit ideal weight balance, and suppresses adverse effects between channels for extraordinary channel separation. The result is remarkably pure reproduction of every part of the sound.
The R-N2000A is equipped with the Yamaha MusicCast network system. Moreover, it is compatible with a variety of streaming services such as Amazon Music HD and Spotify, letting you fully enjoy exceptionally high-quality sound unique to today’s high-resolution and lossless sound sources, with complete fidelity.
USB DAC Function
An ultra-precision dedicated crystal clock has been installed to improve signal accuracy. It also supports DSD 11.2MHz native playback and 384kHz playback, letting you enjoy exceptionally high-quality sound that takes full advantage of high-resolution audio sources.
NS2000A 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker

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.
