Yamaha NS5000 speakers ... classical gas

Available to audition in their own Lygon st Showroom. These are a speaker of remarkable presence and beauty. They are highly capable of presenting the music in a natural and completely unfettered manner. Properly powered it doesn't matter what the volume is, they retain their particular quality at low volume and can very nearly do PA type sound pressure levels while remaining tonally consistent throughout. A remarkable performance envelope.

I fell in love with the spiritual and physical precursor to this speaker being the NS1000 of the 1980's, indeed I still have clients from that era who bought those speakers back then from me and feed them a diet of new amplification and sources every 15 years or so. These NS5000 speakers are better, like a new Lexus is better than my old Corolla.

Product Description


Yamaha proudly introduces the NS-5000, a 30 cm (12") 3-way bookshelf speaker system that illustrates the future direction of Yamaha's speaker technology grown out of years of cutting-edge research on all aspects of designing Hi-Fi speakers, including components and materials. The NS-5000, built upon the tradition of natural sound for which all Yamaha speakers have been known — from the very first NS-20 and NS-30 models released in 1968 to the latest — and sets a new standard in sound excellence expected of Yamaha's top-of-the-line speaker. With non-colouration of sound, wide frequency response, consistent sound characteristics across the frequency range, and extremely low distortion set as self-imposed requirements for a new-generation speaker, we scientifically probed each of these characteristics to be incorporated into a flagship capable of bringing out the best of high-resolution audio sources. The result is the superb NS-5000, with sound and performance that sets a standard for all Hi-Fi speakers to come.

NS-5000: A modern classic The biggest innovation is the use of a synthetic polymer known as Zylon that has been used by NASA and Formula One manufacturers. It’s perfectly suited to use in speaker drivers due to its ideal combination of light weight, strength and elasticity. Here’s a quick summary of the innovations in Yamaha’s new NS-5000′s: The first drivers to be 100% made of ZYLON®, a synthetic polymer that is incredibly light & strong yet has optimal elasticity ZYLON® tweeter, midrange and woofer that deliver homogenous tone and acoustic velocity throughout the entire frequency range Custom-designed Resonance Suppression Chambers (see image below) that cancel out resonance peaks behind the tweeter and mid-range drivers New Acoustic Absorber design that negates standing waves without requiring large amounts of sound-absorbing material Crossover network with hand-picked parts including Mundorf’s MCap SUPREME EVO audio capacitor and MResist SUPREME attenuator
