The Yamaha NP-S2000 Network Music Player is a new concept in music players. Rather than employing a hard drive of its own, it brings new life to the music data already on your home computer network--on your PC, laptop, or stored on network-connected hard drives--and shares it across the entire home. And because it's from Yamaha, it delivers natural, beautifully balanced sound.

to view the music network control of the NP-S2000
Music is best when it's at your command. That's why the NP-S2000 is designed to provide the bridge between your music collection and your home network. It offers simple, full control of your music library wherever you are, with a richer, wider data stream that the standard DAP interface. Your entire music library from your CDs to your digital music files are ready to be discovered over your home network.
The driveless design puts an end to background drive noise
The unique driveless design of the NP-S2000 puts an end to all the drive-related noises that your ears have taken for granted. Hard drive spindle motors and actuators create noise that our ears can hear. By totally eliminating that noise, the NP-S2000 now delivers music against a truly silent background. The dramatic improvement of signal-to-noise ratio brings new life and realism to your digital music. You'll immediately be impressed by its sonic clarity.
Custom Application for Easy Setup
And included setup application guides you through installation step by step. Now anybody can create a fully functional digital audio network, without needing extensive technical knowledge.
Web Browser Control with iTunes-Compatible Server Software
The NP-S2000's web browser interface works anywhere you want it to, from your iPhone or other smartphone to netbooks, desktop computers, and other network devices. You'll always have total, fingertip access to your music library. In conjunction with the web browser interface, the multi-language FL panel on the front of the NP-S2000 displays track name, artist, and other information.
Plus, the included TwonkyMedia server software makes it easy to enjoy seamless operation with Apple iTunes. Access your full iTunes library and playlists just as you do now.
Yamaha's D/A converter for natural sound reproduction
Independant power supplies prevent noise interference
Now you can play extended albums and live performances continuously, without any gaps between tracks to interrupt playback. You'll hear the performance as it was meant to be, without any distractions from the total musical experience.
Low Jitter for Solid Audio Quality
Data buffering causes what is known as jitter--time variations in the data stream that can degrade audio quality. By minimizing jitter, the NP-S2000 presents your music as it was meant to be. The soundstage is clear and stable, revealing every breath and nuance of your favorite musicians.
Burr-Brown DACs for Full Balanced Signal Transmission
The NP-S2000 employs two high-precision Burr-Brown Digital/Analog Converters (DACs), each working in monaural mode for independent left and right stereo outputs. These are then fed into independent low-pass filters and separate, balanced transmission circuits through all stages. When connected to the balanced input of an amplifier like the Yamaha A-S2000, the freedom from transmission noise guarantees exceptionally pure, natural sound reproduction.
Fully Independent Digital/Analog Power Supplies
The NP-S2000 features two independent power supplies: one for the analog circuitry and one for the digital components, to prevent noise interference between the two. A large toroidal transformer minimizes leakage of magnetic flux for stable power, while independent left and right channel windings improve stereo separation, helping to create a broader, clearer soundstage.
Dedicated Remote Control Included
The included remote control unit offers convenient basic operations such as volume control, next/last track, and more.
