Yamaha Makes Audiophile Products More Affordable

The new A-S2100 Amp and CD-S2100 CD Player will start shipping sometime this month.

Late last year, Yamaha debuted the A-S3000 amplifier and the CD-S3000 CD/SACD player to the audiophile crowd, right before CEDIA. Now, the company is hoping to recapture some of that magic, but at a slightly lower price. The A-S2100 integrated amplifier and the CD-S2100 CD/SACD player will start shipping to stereo enthusiasts sometime this month.

The stereo(160 W + 160 W) A-S2100 promises reduced noise and the elimination of signal transmission loss via a floating and balanced design with MOSFETs. Other features include an EI transformer, four large capacity carbon sheath capacitors, and a left-right symmetrical design with the power supply in the center and the power amp blocks on the ends. The latter boasts better two-channel reproduction.

The CD-S2100 has a built-in USB DAC and 32-bit ES9016 from ESS Technology, as well as vibration control and an optimized high-precision rigid CD mechanism.

“Audiophiles do not want to simply hear the music — they want to feel it in its most natural sense,” said Bob Goedken, general manager, Yamaha Corporation of America’s AV Division. “The A-S2100 and CD-S2100 have been built-by-ear and rigorously evaluated to deliver the ultimate music experiences that will engage, excite and transport listeners.”

Available in black or silver, the A-S2100 and CD-S2100 will sell for $3,999.95 and MSRP $3,499.95, respectively.
