LUXURIOUS WITH SPACIOUS SOUND
Fusing rich aesthetics with the latest advanced technology, Yamaha—famed also for its musical instruments—has created the NS-800A bookshelf speaker. Yamaha’s unique Harmonious Diaphragm™ produces exceptionally unified tone, while the spacious large-capacity cabinet delivers a vast and luxuriant sound field. And it is all topped off with a beautiful grand piano-like finish that gives you an even more luxurious music listening experience.
TOTAL MUSIC REPRODUCTION
Yamaha's patented R.S. (Resonance Suppression) chambers are mounted on the back of the tweeter in order to faithfully express even the finest nuances of musical instruments and voices. Two specially shaped tubes cancel unwanted resonance generated behind the diaphragm, revitalizing the original sound and maintaining the minute musical nuances.
FAITHFUL MUSICAL PRESENCE
Conventional speakers use a large amount of sound-absorbing material to eliminate standing waves inside the cabinet, but also removes much of the inherent freshness of the music. In the NS-800A, we’ve employed our patented Absorber tube to eliminate standing waves, and yet minimize the amount of absorbing material, so that the original realism of music is reproduced with full energy and dynamism.
HIGHLY MUSICAL VIBRATION CONTROL
The basis for producing excellent sound—determining what makes the enclosure sound and where to suppress vibration—is virtually identical whether making musical instruments or making speakers. The cabinet construction of the NS-800A incorporates state-of-the-art speaker design technology that makes full use of laser vibrometers, used in musical instrument research and development, and sophisticated FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis. The cross piece of the cabinet has been optimally reinforced, realizing an overwhelming spatial expression that makes you feel as if you were right there experiencing the full atmosphere of the performance.
Representative of the flagship series, the NS-800A adopts the highest quality parts for the crossover circuit. The MCap® SUPREME Classic audio capacitor made by Mundorf of Germany, renowned as the pinnacle in audio-use capacitor, is used along with a huge woofer coil.
The speaker is equipped with Yamaha's original Twisted Flare Port, which alters the way air spreads toward the end of the port, adding a gentle twist to reduce air flow noise around the port, a common problem in conventional bass reflex speakers, and delivers exceptionally accurate response with clear, tight bass reproduction.
The speaker terminals feature an original design, with a shape that comfortably fits with human fingers for a luxurious feel, while simultaneously allowing for effortless tightening.
The NS-800A is an uncompromising 2-way speaker that provides faithful timbre of all musical instruments and a spacious sound stage.
