This is sound that only Yamaha can realize as the only audio brand in the world that handles everything from the moment a sound is created to the time it reaches the human ear. Simply close your eyes and feel the artist performing right there in front of you, and experience the profound sensation of being truly ‘Closer to the Artist.’
The position of the artist and the instrument, and even the delicate nuances and very atmosphere of the performance space is stunningly reproduced just as they are.
The resulting soundstage is so incredibly realistic, you’ll feel as if you were watching the performance unfold right in front of you.
Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO™)
Environmental factors play an important role in the sonic signature of a room, and with any type of audio. Yamaha’s own YPAO™ automatic calibration technique, refined over decades of use in Home Theater products, has been optimized for the R-N2000A to deliver the ideal listening environment, as if you were in a professional audio listening room – without requiring any laborious manual setting adjustments. YPAO™ features precision EQ, which performs exceptionally high-precision equalization with accuracy of up to 192 kHz / 64-bit audio resolution. YPAO™ R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) works in tandem to actively control the important early reflection sounds, automatically adjusting and optimizing how the sound is heard in your room, depending on the materials of the walls and the speaker placement. Which means you can enjoy the profound sound and immersive feeling unique to Hi-Fi audio – right in your own living room.
Usually reserved for flagship Hi-Fi components, the R-N2000A benefits from the technical proficiency and absolute musicality of a toroidal transformer. Combined with an array of high-end Hi-Fi features and components, the toroidal transformer assists in ensuring the musical emotion is conveyed to the listener. Moreover, a 3 mm brass base is sandwiched between the bottom of the transformer and the inner chassis to control vibrations in the transformer, delivering an overwhelmingly spacious sound filled with realism.
In pursuit of clear, transparent sound field reproduction while delivering rich and fully detailed level of musicality, we have adopted the state of the art ES9026PRO digital-to-analog converter from ESS Technologies. This high-quality DAC achieves highly accurate signal conversion through the balanced analog audio output and further refined current delivery for four-channel operation, effectively reproducing even the subtle ambience of concert halls and delicate expressive nuances in the sound.
LOW IMPEDANCE CONCEPT
In order to thoroughly eliminate energy loss and degradation of the audio signal, the R-N2000A features thick wires for the ground connection a critical feature that establishes the componentry as being truly premium Hi-Fi. In addition, a screw connection is adopted for the output from the power amplifier section in order to strengthen the ground, which is important for audio quality. By achieving these, an open, natural sound stage is realized, bringing the artist and listener closer together.
As opposed to merely producing powerful sound, we pursue a sense of dynamics that express the contrast between stillness and motion in the music-allowing you to feel the intensely deep emotions in the music and immerse yourself in that musical world.
MECHANICAL GROUND CONCEPT
Just as with the Yamaha Hi-Fi flagship model, the R-N2000A employs the mechanical ground concept. The concept begins with the bolts of the feet welded directly to the main chassis, and continues with the large heat sink, power transformer and block capacitors also directly bolted to the chassis. This design prevents unwanted vibration, resulting in powerful, highly expressive low-frequency response and letting you feel the deep groove of the music.
SILVER-PLATED BRASS FEET
Completing the solid rigidity of the amplifier are its heavy-duty silver-plated brass feet firmly reinforcing the rich, foundational low-frequency response and filling it with musicality.
This is the relentlessly faithful reproduction of all sounds, from all instruments and all vocals, at all pitches and across the entire spectrum.
Enjoy the full harmony and musicality in the sound even sounds you’ve never heard before.
FLOATING AND BALANCED POWER AMPLIFIER
Equipped with our original amplifier technology, the power amplifier circuitry including the power supply is completely independent from the ground, and the influence of minute voltage fluctuations and external ground noise is completely eliminated. A variety of benefits result from this circuit design, including perfect symmetry of pull-pull operation in the output stage, attainment of excellent S/N ratio, and an overwhelmingly expressive power that perfectly draws out the sound of any musical instrument.
Pursuing the epitome of stereo reproduction in this component, the R-N2000A has adopted perfectly symmetrical, folding-book construction, with the power supply in the center and the power amplifier blocks at both ends of the main unit. This gives the unit ideal weight balance and suppresses adverse effects between channels for extraordinary channel separation. The result is remarkably pure reproduction of every part of the sound – just as is.
The R-N2000A is equipped with Yamaha’s original MusicCast network system. Moreover, it is compatible with a variety of streaming services such as Amazon Music HD and Spotify, letting you fully enjoy exceptionally high-quality sound unique to today’s high-resolution and lossless sound sources, with complete fidelity. You can also use it to stream Apple Music with Airplay 2. And the MusicCast system lets you easily listen to music anywhere in your home by linking various MusicCast devices with just one app on your smart device.

GORGEOUS LEVEL METERS
The elegant level meters are strongly evocative of the nostalgic era of Hi-Fi, and yet simultaneously signal the return of pure Hi-Fi for today’s discerning enthusiast. Visually presenting the dynamics and pulse of the music, the level meters imbue a warm feeling through their softly illuminated LEDs. Moreover, the bottom of the front panel features a brilliant, high-definition organic LED display that shows the content being played.
HDMI ARC TERMINAL
Get true Hi-Fi sound on your TV. The R-N2000A is compatible with HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel), allowing you to connect to your TV with just a single cable meaning that you can enjoy not only audio but also TV audio content such as live performance broadcasts and music programs, with excellent sound quality.
USB DAC FUNCTION
A stable transmission method throught a stable transmission method through asynchronous transmission has been adopted. Moreover, an ultra-precision dedicated crystal clock has been installed to improve signal accuracy. It also supports DSD 11.2MHz native playback and 384kHz playback, letting you enjoy exceptionally high-quality sound that takes full advantage of high-resolution audio sources.
ORIGINAL SPEAKER TERMINALS
Cut directly from pure brass, the luxurious speaker terminals comfortably fit the human hand for effortless tightening, achieving a highly secure connection.
