This is sound that only Yamaha can realize as the only audio brand in the world that handles everything from the moment a sound is created to the time it reaches the human ear. Simply close your eyes and feel the artist performing right there in front of you, and experience the profound sensation of being truly ‘Closer to the Artist.’
The position of the artist and the instrument, and even the delicate nuances and very atmosphere of the performance space are stunningly reproduced just as they are. The resulting soundstage is so incredibly realistic, you’ll feel as if you were watching the performance unfold right in front of you.
Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO™)
Environmental factors play an important role in the sonic signature of a room, and with any type of audio. Yamaha’s own YPAO™ automatic calibration technique, refined over decades of use in Home Theater products, has been optimized for the R-N1000A 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. Which means you can enjoy the profound sound and immersive feeling unique to Hi-Fi audio - right in your own living room.
As opposed to merely producing powerful sound, we pursue a sense of dynamics that express the contrast between stillness and motion in the music-allowing you to feel the intensely deep emotions in the music and immerse yourself in that musical world.
EXPERIENCE THE LEGEND, ENJOY THE MUSICALITY
Yamaha boasts over 60 years of history as an audio brand. And the technology of R-N1000A comes directly from Yamaha’s legendary Hi-Fi design concept ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology), which faithfully maintains the integrity of the audio by combining a meticulously symmetrical left / right circuit layout and signal directness (straightest, shortest signal paths) with a low-vibration chassis of high rigidity, equipped with the special resin frame “Art Base” that absorbs and blocks unnecessary vibration. It maintains sonic purity and dynamism of sound.
DOUBLE BOTTOM CHASSIS
The enclosing structure is further strengthened by a double-bottom chassis and a thick iron damping plate of 1 mm added to the chassis bottom. This eliminates various vibrations that would adversely affect the sound and enhances the expressiveness of the lower frequencies—conveying both the profound power and supple grace of even the performance of a full concert orchestra.
The R-N1000A also employs anti-resonance feet designed under a concept of vibration absorption. By arranging thin curved reinforcing bars on the outer periphery and thick straight reinforcing bars in the center, the vibration energy transmitted from the outside of the leg is effectively dispersed and diminished, while maintaining high central rigidity. These make it possible to reproduce a focused sound that lets you fully feel the rhythm and dynamics of the music.
HIGH-QUALITY PARTS FOR OUTSTANDING AUDIO PERFORMANCE
Custom-made power transformer and block capacitors, one-point grounding system, high-quality audio condensers, and other top-class parts effortlessly handle demanding audio signal conditions. Since the quality of each individual part, as well as how they work together, basically determines the sound quality of any component, Yamaha makes sure that only the most carefully selected and tested parts are used.
This is the relentlessly faithful reproduction of all sounds, from all instruments and all vocals, at all pitches and across the entire spectrum.
Enjoy the full harmony and musicality in the sound even sounds you’ve never heard before.
The R-N1000A uses the renowned SABRE ES9080Q 384 kHz / 32-bit DAC (from ESS Technology) to deliver superior S/N performance. Combined with Yamaha’s original network module, the unit thoroughly draws out all the sonic merits of high-resolution sound sources, 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-N1000A 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. This gives the R-N1000A increased signal-to-noise performance, making it possible to reproduce sound with full clarity.
Gold-plated terminals ensure a high quality connection that prevents signal loss. The R-N1000A have gold-plated speaker terminals and input terminals.
FULL-FLEDGED MUSICAL EXPERIENCE FROM YOUR SMARTPHONE
The R-N1000A is equipped with Yamaha's original 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. You can also use it to stream Apple Music with Airplay 2. And the MusicCast system lets you easily listen to music anywhere in your home by linking various MusicCast devices with just one app on your smart device.
