Yamaha Introduces Six New Hi-Fi Products to its Audio Lineup

New line of modern Hi-Fi products offer an assortment of features and price points for a wide range of Hi-Fi customers

BUENA PARK, Calif. (Aug. 31, 2023)Yamaha continues its commitment to high-fidelity music playback with the introduction of new Hi-Fi network receivers and speakers, offering both analog and digital capabilities at a variety of price points. The new Hi-Fi lineup includes the R-N1000A, R-N800A and R-N600A network receivers, as well as the NS-800A and NS-600A speakers and SPS-800A speaker stand.
The new Hi-Fi network receivers were designed and built to use technological learnings and patents from the Flagship 5000 Series, the ultimate expression of Yamaha True Sound.
All receiver models include the latest MusicCast music streaming technology, giving access to popular services such as Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Amazon Music, Qobuz and Apple Music via Airplay 2, among others, through a convenient smartphone app. Customers can listen to their favorite music services in up to 384kHz/32-bit resolution.
Notable features of the R-N1000A and R-N800A include YPAO automatic room calibration technology and USB DAC. The R-N1000A consists of the widest feature set, adding high-quality parts including premium-grade capacitors, resistors and gold-plated terminals, and HDMI ARC for connection to a TV.
Additionally, the new NS-800A and NS-600A two-way bookshelf speakers were created to expand the brand's Hi-Fi offerings to meet a range of customer needs. Both speakers feature a unique diaphragm material made from a blend of Zylon® that is used on flagship NS-5000 speakers and spruce used on piano soundboards. Patented technologies – resonance suppression chambers and acoustic absorbers – along with an authentic Yamaha piano finish are also part of the premium build of these speakers. Additionally, SPS-800A speaker stand, created especially for these speakers, allows for optimal placement and minimization of vibrations.
"Yamaha is more dedicated to Hi-Fi than ever before," said Alex Sadeghian, director of consumer audio at Yamaha Corporation of America. "Our latest products are not only grounded on our Hi-Fi and musical heritage but also on extensive research and development to produce innovative products that embody Yamaha True Sound. This new series of receivers and speakers will continue to expand the reach of Yamaha Hi-Fi products and offer true music enjoyment to a broader audience."
