Yamaha CD-S300 CDplayer?

Hi Fi-lovers, does anyone have any experience with the Yamaha CD-S300 CD player?

Is it any good or gives it average sonic performance?

New model - not sure anyone's heard it just yet, though I might be wrong.

I wonder if the CD-S300 would fit well with the new class leader A-S500?

Hi Dalinova

I am sure the new CD-S300 will be an excellent match with the new A-S500. Big Smile

All the best

Re: Yamaha CD-S300 CDplayer?

The CD-S300 will be designed to go with the new £230 Yamaha A-S300 amp (Already available for £206)

Probably best to wait for the matching CD-S500

I'm sure it'll be along soon.

[Update] Seems there is now a Yamaha T-S500 tuner even though it is not even on the Yamaha Europe/UK site. Probably because it lacks DAB. Maybe there will be a DAB version of the T-S500 for the UK.

Nice to see Yamaha getting back into budget hifi seperates again.

There is even a R-S500/700 receiver with built-in tuners ....seems a fusion of the A-S500 and T-S-500.

If there were an R-S1000 with FM, DAB+ and internet tuner and built in DAC (plus polished wooden ends and LED backlit VU meters) I would seriously have to get it!

I love the retro looks of the A-S1000/2000 stuff and feel they ought to go the extra mile with backlit meters. (Useless but cool Smile)

I think they should do a nice pre/power amp based on the 1000/2000 series - as you say Chebby, with the same retro looks and some nice big VU meters - I'd buy that Yes

Any chance the Yamaha setup will include the NS-B500 speakers?

Re: Yamaha CD-S300 CDplayer?

A question for MUSICRAFT, FrankHarveyHiFi and TheHomeCinemaCentre:

Have you received any confirmation from Yamaha as to when the NS-B500 speakers will be released in the UK?

The HiFix PDF of Yamaha's A-S500 / A-S300 press release does mention them briefly, and they feature on the Yamaha UK website, so just wondering if you guys have been given any dates yet?

Thanks
