Modern HiFi – Original and innovative
A modern hi-fi building block for the new generation of music listening, e.g. high-resolution music streaming combined with traditional hi-fi quality. The R-N2000A follows in the tradition of excellent music and hi-fi products from Yamaha and transforms your living room into a sound world of breathtaking beauty.
This unique sound is only possible with Yamaha, because Yamaha is the only audio brand in the world that takes care of everything from the moment a sound is created to the moment it reaches the human ear. Close your eyes and feel an ultra-realistic soundscape where you are within reach of the artist.
The position of the artist and the instrument and even the subtle nuances and unique acoustics of the concert hall are faithfully reproduced. The resulting soundstage is so incredibly realistic that you will feel as if you are witnessing the performance live.
Normally reserved for high-end hi-fi components, the R-N2000A benefits from the technical performance and absolute musicality of a toroidal transformer. In conjunction with numerous high-end Hi-Fi features and components, the toroidal transformer ensures that the emotional range of the music is passed on to the listener.
In addition, there is a 3 mm thick brass base between the bottom of the transformer and the inner cabinet, which dampens the vibrations of the transformer and provides an overwhelmingly spatial and realistic sound.
Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO™)
Environmental factors play an important role in the acoustic signature of a room and for any type of audio. Yamaha’s proprietary YPAO™ automatic calibration, which has been used in many home cinemafor decades, has been optimized for the R-N2000A to create an ideal listening environment, just as if you were in a professional audio listening room – without having to make tedious manual adjustments.
YPAO™ features a precision EQ that performs exceptionally high-precision equalization with up to 192 kHz/64-bit resolution. YPAO R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) works in concert to actively control the important early reflection sounds. This automatically adjusts and optimizes how the sound is heard in your room, depending on the materials of the walls and the placement of the speaker. This means you can enjoy the full sound and unparalleled emotionality of hi-fi audio – right in your living room.
High performance DAC
For clear, transparent reproduction of the sound image and detailed musicality, the state-of-the-art ES9026PRO digital-to-analog converter from ESS Technologies is used.
This high-quality DAC achieves high-precision signal conversion via the balanced analog audio output and further enhanced current output for four-channel operation, effectively reproducing even the subtle acoustics of concert halls and subtle, expressive nuances in sound.
Low impedance concept
To prevent energy loss and audio signal degradation, the R-N2000A features thick wires for the ground connection – a key feature that identifies the components as true premium hi-fi devices.
Also, the output of the power amplifier is screwed to strengthen the grounding, which is important for audio quality. This creates an open, natural sound stage that brings the artist and the listener closer together.
As opposed to simply producing a powerful sound, we are concerned with creating a sense of dynamism that brings to life the contrast between stillness and movement in the music, allowing you to experience music with an intense and deep emotionality while being fully immersed in the musical world.
Mechanical concept for a stable floor
Just like Yamaha’s high-end Hi-Fi model, the R-N2000A works with the mechanical concept for a stable floor. The concept starts with the bolted feet, which are welded directly to the main chassis, and continues with the large heat sink, power transformer and block capacitors, which are also bolted directly to the cabinet.
This design eliminates unwanted vibrations, resulting in powerful, expressive low-frequency response. You can feel the intense groove of the music.
Silver plated brass feet
The solid construction of the integrated ampis completed by the heavy, silver-colored brass feet, which amplify the powerful, fundamental low frequency range and fill it with musicality.
This is the relentlessly faithful reproduction of all sound components, from all instruments and all voices, at all pitches and across the entire spectrum. Experience the full harmony and musicality of sound, even with sounds you’ve never heard before.
Fully balanced power amplifier
Thanks to the original amplifier technology, the circuit of the power amplifier, including the power supply, is completely independent of the ground, and the influence of tiny voltage fluctuations and external ground interference has been completely eliminated.
This circuit design offers a number of advantages, including the perfect symmetry of pull-pull operation in the output stage, the achievement of excellent signal-to-noise ratio, and overwhelming expressiveness that perfectly brings out the sound of any musical instrument.
To achieve the epitome of stereo reproduction in this component, the R-N2000A has a perfectly balanced, hinged design with the power supply in the center and the power amp blocks at either end of the main unit.
This gives the unit ideal weight distribution and suppresses unwanted effects between channels for outstanding channel separation. The result is a remarkably pure reproduction of all sound components – exactly as they are.
The R-N2000A is equipped with Yamaha’s unique MusicCast network system. It’s also compatible with a wide range of streaming services, including Amazon Music HD and Spotify, so you can fully enjoy the exceptional sound quality of today’s high-resolution and lossless sound sources with absolute fidelity.
You can also use it to stream Apple Music with Airplay 2. And with the MusicCast system, you can easily listen to music anywhere in your home by linking different MusicCast devices with just one app on your smart device.
Attractive level displays
The beautifully designed level meters are a strong reminder of the nostalgic era of hi-fi, while signaling the return of pure hi-fi for today’s discerning music lover.
The level meters visually represent the dynamics and beat of the music, and their softly glowing LEDs give a pleasant feeling. There is also a brilliant, high-resolution LED display on the bottom of the front panel that shows the track being played.
USB DAC function
A stable transmission method by asynchronous transmission was chosen. In addition, a high-precision, dedicated quartz clock provides improved signal accuracy.
It also supports native DSD playback at 11.2 MHz and 384 kHz playback, so you can enjoy exceptionally high-quality sound that takes full advantage of high-resolution audio sources.
