Yamaha NS 5000 Includes dedicated SPS5000 stands
Yamaha proudly introduces the NS-5000, a 30 cm (12") 3-way bookshelf speaker system that illustrates the future direction of Yamaha's speaker technology grown out of years of cutting-edge research on all aspects of designing Hi-Fi speakers, including components and materials. The NS-5000, built upon the tradition of natural sound for which all Yamaha speakers have been known — from the very first NS-20 and NS-30 models released in 1968 to the latest — and sets a new standard in sound excellence expected of Yamaha's top-of-the-line speaker. With non-colouration of sound, wide frequency response, consistent sound characteristics across the frequency range, and extremely low distortion set as self-imposed requirements for a new-generation speaker, we scientifically probed each of these characteristics to be incorporated into a flagship capable of bringing out the best of high-resolution audio sources. The result is the superb NS-5000, with sound and performance that sets a standard for all Hi-Fi speakers to come.
Newly developed diaphragms boast acoustic velocity comparable to that of beryllium
NS-5000's tweeter, midrange, and woofer all feature diaphragms made of 100%*1 ZYLON® — a synthetic fiber created in Japan rated as the world’s strongest*2 and boasting optimum elasticity — using Yamaha’s original monel alloy vapor coating deposition method. The soft-dome diaphragm suppresses peaks and dips in the frequency response caused by the inherent resonance of the diaphragm, while taking advantage of ZYLON®'s high acoustic velocity comparable to that of beryllium, considered as the ideal diaphragm material for its hardness, lightweight (low density), and stiffness. The result is a remarkably flat frequency response, with unified tone color and acoustic velocity over the entire frequency range, providing comfortable listening experience and meticulously accurate, superb sound reproduction of the highest degree.
