Compact Disc Player
Designed to Deliver Satisfying Sound
Inheriting many of the sound quality features
of the S2000/S1000 Series components, this
CD player delivers sound that will satisfy
devoted music fans. In addition to CDs, it
also provides high quality play of music files
stored on digital audio players like iPod or
USB memory devices via a USB port on the
front panel.
Pure Direct
The CD-S300 provides the same Pure Direct
feature that is a popular feature of Yamaha
amplifiers and receivers. Pressing the button
on the front panel or on the remote control
shuts down the digital audio output and
turns off the display. This achieves the lowest
possible noise interference and thus highest
sound quality of the analogue audio output.
Well Matched, High Quality Parts
Each of the individual elements in a CD player
influences the sound quality, which is why
Yamaha puts a great deal of effort into the
selection and matching of parts and materials.
Three examples in the CD-S300 are a highgrade acoustic capacitor, a new low-noise,
high-gain bandwidth op amp, and the use of
damping material under the transformer and
around the signal cables. In short, this CD
player's internal sophistication is on a level
generally found on much more expensive
High Performance D/A Converter
Utilising a Burr Brown 192kHz/24-bit DAC, the
high performance D/A conversion system takes
full advantage of the digital technology refined
by Yamaha over a period of many years,
ensuring excellent conversion precision, S/N
ratio and dynamic range.
Laser Pickup Floating Mechanism
The laser pickup is isolated on a floating
mechanism so its delicate operation cannot be
affected by vibration.
Extremely Sophisticated Circuitry and
Yamaha technicians devoted a great deal of
time and effort to designing the overall
interior layout of parts and circuit boards, a
factor that significantly affect sound quality.
As a result, the power supplies for the motor
drive, display and USB sections, as well as
the digital, and analogue sections are
individually isolated, eliminating
electromagnetic interference among them.
To achieve ideal weight balance for stable
performance, the drive mechanism is located
in the centre of the unit.
Short Signal Paths
The internal layout of parts and circuit
boards is highly logical and symmetrical,
with signal paths on each board as short as
possible, and signal paths between sections
straight and short (not easy to achieve) to
minimise the chance of signal loss or
Enjoy Your MP3 and WMA Music
The USB port on the front panel gives you an
easy way to enjoy high quality sound from MP3
or WMA digital music files stored on USB
players and memory devices, as well as on
memory cards mounted on USB card readers.
You can also play files recorded on CD-R/RW
Intelligent Digital Servo
Conventional tracking servo circuitry cannot
completely overcome errors caused by disc
defects, warpage, dust and so on. This system
uses a dependable DSP (Digital Signal Processor)
exclusive for CDs to monitor the signal, adjusting
pickup tracking and focus, as well as spindle
motor speed, to compensate for any problems.
Enjoy iPod Music at Maximum Quality
Using a USB cable, you can plug your iPod into
the USB port to enjoy your music library via
your audio system. The digital signal is sent to
the CD player with no degradation and then
converted to analogue by the high
performance DAC, and transmitted to the
amplifier by the high quality audio circuitry, so
you hear your music at the highest possible
quality. As iPod or USB audio data input from
the USB port can be also output by digital out
terminals (optical or coaxial), digital signals
can be transmitted as is to amps or audio
systems with digital inputs.* You can use the
remote control to command the play, pause,
skip and forward/backward functions, and
song, artist and album names will be
displayed. Compatible iPods are the iPod
classic (including 120GB classic), iPod nano
(2nd Gen., 3rd Gen., 4th Gen.) and iPod touch
(1st Gen. and 2nd Gen.). When the power is on
and USB mode is selected, the iPod charges
* When connected to the digital input of a recording device, copying is
prohibited due to copy protection and recording cannot be done.
3-Mode CD Text Display
Get information about the CD currently
playing right on the CD player’s display. The 3mode CD Text display shows the CD’s title, the
artist’s name and the title of the track.
Programmable Play
It’s extremely easy to programme the tracks
you want to hear in any order. You can clear
the programme at any time with a single
