THE ALCHEMY OF HI-FI
Introducing a modern Hi-Fi component, effortlessly combining a new generation of music listening – such as high-resolution music streaming – with time-honored Hi-Fi quality. Drawing on our unmatched history in music and acclaimed Hi-Fi products, the R-N2000A will transform your life with breathtakingly beautiful sound.
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 audio, 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 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, allowing you to 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 which firmly reinforce the rich foundational low-frequency response.
FLOATING AND BALANCED POWER AMPLIFIER
Equipped with our original amplifier technology, the power amplifier circuitry, including the power supply, is 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 the perfect symmetry of pull-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 elegant level meters evoke the nostalgic era of Hi-Fi while the digital display adds a modern contrast. Visually presenting the dynamics and pulse of the music, the level meters imbue a warm feeling through their softly illuminated LEDs. The bottom of the front panel features a brilliant, high-definition organic LED display that shows the content being played.
Get true Hi-Fi sound on your TV. The R-N2000A is compatible with HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel), allowing you to connect to your TV with just a single cable. Enjoy TV audio content with excellent sound quality.
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.
Cut directly from pure brass, the luxurious speaker terminals comfortably fit the human hand for effortless tightening, achieving a highly secure connection.
