The Yamaha NP-S2000BL Network Player is a music player that gives you simple, full control of your entire music library in one place. Offering a wider and richer data stream than the standard DAP interface, this player brings together all of your favorite music and delivers it to you over your home network.
Making "less is more" its motto, Yamaha has eliminated hard drives and motors in this model, providing an innovative design that delivers pure sound unaffected by background noise. Since there is no need for data buffering, this player also is free of jitters, further improving sound quality. Two highly precise D/A converters feed into low-pass filters and separate, balanced transmission circuits; when these are connected to the balanced input of an amplifier, the result is pure sound free of transmission noise, so you hear only what the musicians meant for you to hear. This player also features gapless playback, so you won't have to wait in between songs; enjoy continuous music.
The S2000 offers a web browser interface that works from any one connected device to another, including from your iPhone / mobile device to netbooks, desktop computers or other network devices. Access to your complete music library is only a fingertip away. The player features iTunes-compatible server software for seamless operation with your Apple music library and playlists.
