The NS-SW700: Elevating the Art of the Home Theater System
Yamaha elevates the art of the home theater system with a natural sound and beautifully designed, highly-styled speaker, providing dynamic, lifelike audio reproduction.
Creating a Beautiful Home Theater System No Parallel Planes
The key element of the NS-SW700 design is a cabinet without parallel planes, inherited from the Soavo Series. Revealing a beautiful piano-like finish, its styling is graceful from all angles. Beautiful to Look at from all Sides
Just like a piano on a stage, the speaker cabinet form is beautiful from any angle so it can be placed anywhere in any room. The striking shape and remarkable originality of the design, combined with its brilliant and lively tone, will enrich your life. Expression of our Origin
A simple grill net like the body line of a guitar shows off the finish of the cabinet. The size is minimized so that it hides as little as possible of the beautiful baffle. From the sound to the appearance, everything about these speakers expresses the fact that Yamaha’s roots are as a musical instrument maker. The Design is Innovative, the Sound is Dynamic, Vivid and "Live"
NS-SW700 subwoofer delivers sound that is so dynamic and vivid, it seems live. One of the main reasons for this is the nonparallel design of the cabinets. In designing them, the Yamaha speaker team aimed to maximize sound clarity and imaging, while minimizing internal standing waves. They succeeded with a rounded top panel that helps to reduce vertical standing waves, and a trapezoidal shape that serves to reduce the horizontal ones. The result is a very natural, expansive sound, making the NS-SW700 subwoofer excellent for both multi-channel music of any genre and home theater use.
QD-Bass Technology Allows Free Placement
| | QD-Bass radiates your sound
QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses down-firing drivers with square, pyramid shaped reflective plates to radiate the sound efficiently in four horizontal directions. It provides extraordinary power and smooth frequency response from an extremely compact unit. It also allows greater freedom of placement, since the sound radiates with equal effectiveness in all directions. Advanced YST II for Awesome Deep Bass
Yamaha's Advanced YST II (Yamaha Active Servo Technology II) uses Advanced Negative Impedance Converter (ANIC) circuits to maintain excellent linearity. This means more stable and accurate low range response and higher sound pressure levels, for more natural and energetic bass reproduction. Linear Port
Advanced YST II produces rich bass sound, and the addition of a Linear Port reduces extraneous noise for even higher quality.
| | Switchable modes for optimum bass sound
The BASS (Bass Action Selector System) function lets you switch between Movie and Music modes, providing the optimum frequency response in each case. NS-SW700 Subwoofer: Ideally Balanced Sound
The NS-SW700 subwoofer meets the challenge of providing an ideal balance between tight sounds (with crisp, fast attack) and deep sounds (with a spacious feeling). Although these two types of sounds, by definition, tend to oppose each other, this subwoofer is capable of accurately rendering the tone intervals of all kinds of sounds, so the music is ideally balanced. Finally, the enjoyment derived from the NS-SW700 is not restricted to your ears — with it's impressive power it lets you feel the music, too. PWM Digital Drive High Efficiency Amplifier
The NS-SW700 subwoofer delivers high power outputs at deep bass levels, with excellent stability and low power consumption, even with their compact cabinets. This is made possible by a power amplifier that delivers stable power output with high efficiency while minimizing power consumption and heat production. It does not require an output filter coil, resulting in extremely low noise and distortion. High speed transient response is also excellent. Three-Way Mitered-Joint Construction for a Rigid Body
Yamaha’s excellence in woodworking is used to good advantage in the three-way mitered construction of the cabinet joints. This technique ensures extremely tight joints so the entire cabinet behaves as a single unit, providing tight bass reproduction.
