Here’s what the judges had to say… Japanese craftsmanship and Hi-Fi tradition combine with cutting-edge digital technology to ensure Yamaha’s R-N2000A streaming receiver is both stunning and innovative. The vintage-inspired front panel sports traditional VU meters and tactile controls but these are augmented by a classy OLED display to help navigate its plentiful features… Click Here To Read More
Introducing a modern Hi-Fi component, effortlessly amalgamating the new generation of music listening such as high-resolution music streaming, with time-honoured Hi-Fi quality.
Drawing on Yamaha’s unmatched history in music and acclaimed Hi-Fi products, the R-N2000A will transform your living room into a space with breathtakingly beautiful sound.
The R-N2000A is equipped with Yamaha’s original MusicCast network system. Moreover, it is compatible with a variety of streaming services letting you fully enjoy exceptionally high-quality sound unique to today’s high-resolution and lossless sound sources, with complete fidelity.
Toroidol Transformer – 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 vibration emanating from transformer, delivering an overwhelmingly spacious sound filled with realism.
High-Performance DAC – 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 ambience 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 realised, 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 lowfrequency response and letting you feel the deep groove of the music.
Silver-Plated Brass Feet – Completing the solid rigidity of the amplifier are its heavy-duty silver-plated brass feet firmly reinforcing the rich, foundational low-frequency response and filling it with musicality.
Floating And Balanced Power Amplifier – Equipped with our 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.
Symmetrical Construction – 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 just as is.
USB DAC Function – A stable transmission method through asynchronous transmission has been adopted. Moreover, an ultraprecision 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.
