Precision Plus Musicality.
This Is the HiFi Tuning Concept.
Inheriting all the precision of the classic NS-10M studio monitor, the NXN500 is a modern monitor that boasts musical expressiveness exceeding its
class. By repeatedly evaluating the tuning of the left and right speakers at
2 to 3m audition position intervals, it achieves stereophonic expression that
liberates the true feeling of the music. Smooth and immediate vocals, a sense
of the body of the melody instrument, a solid backbone to the sound and
high density audio data. This is Yamaha’s answer to the demand for powered
speakers capable of handling hi-res sound.
Discrete Configuration Analog Amplifier and
Bi-Amp Drive Produce Sound
with a Spectacular Feeling of Freedom.
The power amplifier component, critical to powered
speakers, utilizes a discrete configuration analog
amplifier. It produces strong, expansive sound, all in
a bi-amp system Woofer
featuring a 45W
woofer and
25W tweeter.
By directly driving each unit individually,
it produces powerful sound while
maintaining the feeling of high S/N ratio.
Balanced Transmission and Balanced Connection
Thoroughly Eliminate Sound Quality
Degradation Due to Noise.
NX-N500 Balanced Transmission

the external noise
that becomes mixed
with the signal during
transmission. In the
NX-N500, all digital audio
input signals undergo
balance conversion in the L-channel speaker before being transmitted to
the R-channel speaker. XLR cable is used to establish balanced connection
between speakers. This approach thoroughly eliminates noise.
3cm Dome Tweeter for High Resolution Reproduction
and A-PMD 13cm Woofer Unit.
With a 2-way, 2-speaker configuration, the
NX-N500 utilizes a 3cm dome tweeter capable
of handling 40kHz high bandwidth playback in
order to reproduce the rich amount of audio
information unique to hi-res sound sources.
And by incorporating a thick waveguide it
achieves smooth and accurate high frequency
reproduction. The woofer employs the same
New Advanced PMD diaphragm used in the
high-grade Soavo model. With deeply expressive
power to its low frequencies and comfortably
relaxed high frequencies that feel free of peaks,
the NX-N500 triumphs over both highs and lows.
Rigid Enclosure Specially Designed to Suppress
Unwanted Resonance.
The enclosure employs thick MDF with
high rigidity to produce uniform acoustic
characteristics, and features the total three-way
mitered-joint construction traditionally used
in Yamaha high-end speakers. Suppressing
unwanted resonance and highly accurate, it
helps ensure that you’ll hear sound with an
outstanding sense of resolution.
High-Grade USB DAC Supports DSD 5.6MHz
Native Resolution and PCM 384kHz/32-bit for High
Resolution Reproduction.
The NX-N500’s high performance USB DAC is a full-spec PCM 384kHz/32-bit
unit with support for DSD 5.6MHz native resolution. It is compatible with
asynchronous transmission and can perform low-jitter transmission by using
its own master clock, without being affected by
the PC clock. It also makes use of an ASIO driver,
it achieves lower latency and higher throughput
and along with Windows PC compatibility, it’s also
compatible with MAC OS Integer Mode, allowing
32-bit playback even in MAC OS.
Exceptionally High Performance
ESS 32-bit D/A Converter.
The D/A converter for the NX-N500 is the
ES9010K2M from ESS Technology,Inc. not only
itshigh precision processing of 32-bit audio, but
also the ability to handle large amounts of audio
data with full PCM 384kHz, DSD 5.6MHz native reproduction, strength in the low
register, and high quality definition in the high register. Since the built-in D/A
converter generates its own master clock, an original Jitter Elimination function is
also included, permitting D/A conversion with extremely low impact of clock jitter.

Playback Sound Source.
MusicCast Expands Entertainment Possibilities.
MusicCast employs a high performance wireless network to deliver music and
audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone,
PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. It can also share the
music from external devices such as a TV or CD player connected to the NXN500. Audio content from Bluetooth-connected devices can also be streamed
to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.
The front of the speaker provides an LED
display indicator color coded by operating
status: orange for ECO Standby mode, green for
network function, pink for AirPlay and sky blue
for USB DAC, allowing easy, making it very easy
to confirm the music source currently selected.
