  • Ideal cabinet construction, designed with vibration analysis technology cultivated in our crafting of musical instruments
  • Yamaha-patented Acoustic Absorber optimized for the NS-2000A
  • Yamaha-patented R.S. (Resonance Suppression) Chamber for suppressing unwanted resonance
  • Authentic piano finish adds to the luxurious joy of ownership
  • High-quality parts for crossover circuitry, including audio capacitors made by Mundorf of Germany

The NS-2000A is a new generation of speaker crafted by Yamaha. Fusing exquisitely rich aesthetics with the latest advanced technologies, it delivers a unified, balanced sound field that encompasses musicality at its essence.

The Yamaha NS-2000A comes with the same signature gloss finish as found on our grand pianos. This elegant finish presents the speaker as stylish piece of furniture, providing a heightened sense of aesthetic even when no music is playing.


This is sound only Yamaha can realize. We're the only brand in the world that handles audio from the moment sound is created to the moment it reaches the human ear. Simply close your eyes, feel the music in front of you, and experience the profound sensation of being closer to the artist.

Yamaha expresses sound as the artist intended. Reproducing sonic elements such as vocals, instruments at the right pitch requires both passion and precision. Yamaha accomplishes this through tonal balance, enriching harmonies, and recreating musicality to help you hear sounds you couldn't hear before.


We deliver the audio of musical instruments just as they sound when played. As a world-renowned musical instrument brand, Yamaha is relentlessly committed to this mission. We created flagship speakers under the design concept of having consistent tone color throughout the entire frequency spectrum and applied unique technology to achieve it. Every speaker unit is made from a blend of ZYLON®, which has excellent sound velocity and minimal internal dispersion, and spruce, which is used in the soundboard of Yamaha grand pianos. This ensures accurate, faithful tonal expression throughout the entire audio spectrum, making the harmonies of the sound stand out and the music richer and more beautiful.

The position of the artist and the instruments, as well as the delicate nuances and the very atmosphere of the performance space, is stunningly reproduced. The resulting soundstage is so incredibly realistic, you’ll feel as if you were watching the performance unfold right in front of you.

Our patented Resonance Suppression (R.S.) chambers are mounted on the back of the tweeter and midrange units in order to faithfully express even the subtlest nuances of musical instruments and voices. Two specially shaped tubes cancel out unwanted resonance generated behind the diaphragm without relying on conventional sound-absorbing materials. This revives the natural sound and maintains the minute musical details in the original source.

Conventional speakers use a large amount of sound-absorbing material to eliminate standing waves inside the cabinet. Unfortunately, doing so also removes much of the inherent freshness of the music. In the NS-2000A, we’ve employed our patented Acoustic Absorber resonator tube to eliminate standing waves. This patented technology minimizes the amount of absorbing material so that the original realism of music that tends to be lost by sound absorption is reproduced with full energy and dynamism.

As opposed to merely producing powerful sound, we pursue a sense of dynamics that express the contrast between stillness and motion in the music.

The basis for producing excellent sound—determining what makes the enclosure sound and where to suppress vibration—is virtually identical whether crafting musical instruments or creating speakers. The cabinet construction of the NS-2000A incorporates state-of-the-art speaker design technology that makes full use of laser vibrometers used in musical instrument research and development, as well as sophisticated Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis. The cross piece of the cabinet has been optimally reinforced ensuring solid low-frequency response, providing a secure, comfortable musical foundation without anything being lost.
