High-rigidity drive mechanism and innovative circuit design for loss-less audio. Breaks through to the ultimate in audio reproduction—and the very essence of music.Introducing Yamaha’s highest class CD Player. Introducing the S3000 Series, the absolute culmination of hi-fidelity audio. Yamaha knows all about sound and even more about music, and has brought all its rich artistic sensitivity into the creation of this line. Beautiful and elegant in appearance, sturdy and reliable in construction, created with the latest, innovative technology and genuine craftsmanship, all nurtured by their long experience in the manufacture of musical instruments. Yamaha proudly offers this new high-end lineup, delivering supreme quality in every way. This is the manifestation of their passion to give music lovers the ultimate in listening enjoyment - a tradition Yamaha have been carrying on and advancing for more than 125 years.
The CD-S3000 supports the ASIO 2.3 protocol to take full advantage of the sound quality of the USB DAC function. The ASIO 2.3 protocol is a standard protocol for professional use digital audio or DTM, with a significant sound quality benefit: the ability to achieve lower delay and higher throughput than with a standard OS sound driver. The free to download driver software is the ASIO 2.3 Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver, and allows high quality playback of digital audio data stored to computer.
The D/A converter for the CD-S3000 is the ES9018 from ESS Technology, Inc. Since it is constructed with the master clock inside the D/A converter, it is also features an original Jitter Eliminator function, permitting D/A conversion with extremely low impact of clock jitter. It delivers exceptional high performance and high-quality signal output with superior signal to- noise ratio, since it employs an analogue signal processing circuit with balanced configuration.
The internal design of the CD-S3000 does not separate the power supply circuit boards, which include the power transformer; the block capacitors are mounted directly on the respective digital/analogue circuit boards. Thus, an original board configuration which integrates the power supply circuits was adopted. Eliminating cabling from the power supply circuits to each circuit board and mounting directly have the benefit of reducing connection loss, as well as achieving low impedance. Moreover, cabling from the power transformer utilises the same screw type connections Yamaha have given the companion A-S3000 Integrated Amplifier. Connecting directly without soldering achieves thorough contact point loss and low impedance's.
With high-resolution audio sources becoming more common today, the CDS3000 was designed with superior D/A conversion, balanced signal output, and equipped with a built-in USB DAC function which allows direct input of digital audio through a USB terminal. The DAC has an internal master clock, and can perform low-jitter transmission, or receive signals without being synchronised with the master clock in the PC. The unit is compatible with digital audio of up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution.
The insulators are crucial parts that block outside vibrations. They adopt Yamaha’s original metal legs in order to maximise vibration control performance. The user can select point installation by applying the supplied spikes or plane insulation with the supplied pads, and use these combined with an interlocking rack if desired.
The CD-S3000 was created with meticulous care to ensure rigidity with superior vibration control properties and ultra-precise reading to draw out all the music recorded to the disc. Yamaha incorporated a newly designed drive mechanism, installing it on the chassis through the adjustable heavy anchors in front of and behind the loader mechanism. Each CD-S3000 unit is assembled by first attaching the drive mechanism to the chassis, then carefully performing minute horizontal adjustments. While this process is time-consuming and labour-intensive, it demonstrates Yamaha’s genuine desire to realise the ultimate in precise signal reading. In addition, the loader mechanism has a structure in which a highly rigid chassis designed for integration with the loader mechanism supports the entire CD drive.
