Yamaha CD-N500 in the Test

The Yamaha CD-N500 combines network and CD player. Can the result convince sound? We do the test.

Nomen est omen: the Yamaha CD-N500 costs 500 euros and looks like a CD player. He is also – but not just because he combines a CD drive with a network player including Web radio capabilities.

An brilliant idea, so such an amplifier like the successful Yamaha can be with him to a complete HiFi system to expand A S700. The Yamaha brings even a front-mounted USB port for fast docking of portable Apple devices – with digital transmission -.

The CD-N500 clearly demonstrates Yamaha’s wealth of experience in terms of network: Full high resolution capability including 24/192 format is for him as well of course as gapless playback (gapless play). Thus it also hardly noticeable, that it does not support air-play.

With the connectivity it’s serious: you can see that fact that its digital output even when playing compressed or Internet radio material emits a PCM signal – very handy for digital images.

Yamaha: The power of two hearts

The CD-N500 combines a CD player and network client. Both fit into the housing, because the Streaming Board extremely compact fails: Yamaha proprietary development uses a digital signal processor ADSP-BF527 by analog devices, Ethernet and USB capabilities of home brings. Via the digital interface module PCM 9211 Texas’s instruments then moves on to the highly integrated D/A-converter chip for PCM 5101, which already includes the analog output stage.

The extensive list of features of the CD-N500 is not detrimental to its ease of use: everything is kinda self-explanatory, so that it is clear even without operating instructions right off the bat with him. Amazingly this is how successful communication in spite of only one line, but excellent for readable displays. Clearly, that the Yamaha not only by remote control, but also via Android and iOS app can be controlled.

Hearing test

Also the hearing test showed that CD-N500 really succeeded perfectly in every way: so his unconditional will to tonal neutrality was evident already during CD playback. He distinguished himself especially by his powerful, vibrant sound.
