Yamaha CD-S3000 CD Player: Black Finish. Perfect Condition. Pre-Loved

Flagship CD & SACD player from Yamaha designed to perfectly match the Yamaha A-S3000 flagship integrated amplifier. Yamaha CD-S3000 CD & SACD Player is Yamaha’s highest class player with high rigidity drive mechanism and innovative circuit design for lossless audio, designed to match the A-S3000.

Created with meticulous care, CD-S3000 ensures rigidity with superior vibration control properties and ultra-precise reading. Installing heavy anchors in front of and behind the loader mechanism achieves the highest rigidity and blocks the effects of vibrations from outside.

The anchor on the front features two layers and a screw-based mechanism. This allows for highly precise adjustment of the horizontal level of the front-back and left-right sides of the loader mechanism. Reducing the load of the servo which drives the pickup provides a clean signal output that is virtually unaffected by noise.

The CD tray is made of high rigidity aluminium, reducing secondary vibrations due to resonance of the disc and the high-speed motor rotating the disc, resulting in improved audio signal-reading precision and quieter operation. Reinforcing each part improves the rigidity of the main chassis itself. With a 7mm thick aluminium front panel, CD-S3000 is constructed with a rotating loader mechanism in the centre, digital power supply and circuit board on its left while the analogue equivalent is on its right to achieve a symmetrical structure and ideal weight balance. The bottom chassis is copper plated for minimal impedance.

S3000 Series is the absolute culmination of hi-fidelity audio. All the energy and finely nuanced technique of the artist, all the power and subtlety of the original music is fully reproduced, with absolutely nothing left out. The result is a remarkably pure, expressive and exquisitely profound sound. Yamaha proudly offers this new high-end lineup, delivering supreme quality in every way.

Independent Circuits

CD-S3000 adopts a twin power transformer, which completely separates the digital and analogue circuits from the power supply and equips each with its own dedicated power transformer. This eliminates sound quality deterioration caused by interference between circuit blocks resulting in exceptionally clear and low-noise reproduction of analogue audio.

The toroidal transformer with low magnetic leakage, for both digital and analogue units lowers adverse impact on the disc signal. It is enclosed in a copper-plated case to reduce magnetic leakage and vibration for a gentle, calm and even spacious sound. This is one of the series’ main aims of to ensure that even soft sounds are reproduced accurately with rich expressive power.

Single-stage configuration

To thoroughly eliminate audio signal loss, CD-S3000 adopts an innovative circuit configuration for the analogue circuit. The signal is output by a single-stage configuration based on a discrete design of the I/V conversion circuit.

This single-stage configuration with high slew-rate sharply lowers audio signal loss compared to a multi-stage configuration circuit and lowers negative feedback resulting in a natural, spacious sound. The circuits beyond these DACs perform balanced transmission with a circuit configuration marked by symmetrical +/- sides.

Exceptional 32-bit DAC

ESS Technology’s ES9018 DAC was chosen for its high-precision 32-bit audio processing as well as its ability to handle large amounts of data, low register strength and high register premium-quality definition. It also features an original Jitter Eliminator function, permitting D/A conversion with extremely low impact of clock jitter.

An 8-channel DAC is housed inside the chip, and applies double differential operation using 4-channel DACs on the right and left sides respectively. It delivers high-quality signal output with superior signal to noise ratio thanks to the balanced analogue signal processing circuit.

Built-in USB DAC

Designed for optimum enjoyment of high-res audio sources with superior D/A conversion, balanced signal output and a built-in USB DAC function, CDS3000 allows direct digital audio input (from PC etc) via USB. This employs a specially developed original IC, with an internal master clock and low-jitter transmission capability, supporting up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution.

ASIO 2.3 protocol takes full advantage of the USB DAC function sound quality. It is a standard protocol for professional use digital audio or DTM offering the ability to achieve lower delay and higher throughput than a standard OS driver. The driver software allows high quality playback of digital audio data stored to computer.

Integrated power supply

The internal design 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. Eliminating cabling from the power supply circuits to each circuit board and mounting directly has the benefit of reducing connection loss and achieving low impedance. Cabling from the power transformer uses the same screw type connections as the A-S3000.

Pure Direct Mode

The CD-S3000 incorporates a special Pure Direct Mode: When playing back analogue audio, the display is turned off and the digital output circuitry is stopped, improving the quality of analogue output. This enables a warmer, more natural sound with greater musicality, further enhancing the value of a fully balanced connection with the A-S3000.

Insulator Spikes/Pads

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.

Meticulous Design

CD-S3000 gives off the presence of a fine musical instrument with absolutely no screws or fasteners seen from the outside. Every single aspect of its construction and design exudes master craftsmanship and reflects an obsession with quality.

The refined design has been meticulously finished using advanced processing technologies: integrating the top panel and side wood connection, leaving no gaps despite using different materials. The half-mirrored glass window of the display is precision-fit to the front panel lending an elegant appearance to the unit.

Remote control

The supplied remote control is designed in the same way as the aluminium panel, with a simple, easy-to-understand button layout and metallic texture. In addition to basic CD track selection and play controls, it can be used to adjust the volume and switch input sources on the A-S3000.
