New circuit design for the elimination of audio loss, plus high-precision drive mechanism for reproduction accuracy. This high-grade CD player delivers the new sound of Yamaha and is equipped with high-performance USB audio and DAC, and other advanced functions.
The CD-S2100 has completely symmetrical construction: the rotating loader mechanism is in the centre, the digital power supply and circuit board are on the left side, and the analogue power supply and circuit board are on the right. Completely isolating the digital unit and the analogue unit eliminates the detrimental impacts of interference between the circuits, while achieving ideal weight balance. The centre frame that extends from the front to the back of the body and the front panel made of 5mm (1/4″) thick aluminium increases the rigidity of the entire chassis and ensures stable disc play.
The internal design of the CD-S2100 does not separate the power supply circuit boards, which include the power transformer; the block capacitors are mounted directly on the respective digital/analogue circuit boards. Thus, an original board configuration which integrates the power supply circuits was adopted. Eliminating cabling from the power supply circuits to each circuit board and mounting directly have the benefit of reducing connection loss, as well as achieving low impedance. Moreover, cabling from the power transformer utilises the same screw-type connections we’ve given the companion A-S2100 Integrated Amplifier. Connecting directly without soldering achieves thorough contact point loss and low impedance. The signal is transmitted to the amp without loss of any information that has been read, delivering sound reproduction filled with a sense of energy and crisp openness – the over-arching aim of the S2100 Series.
