Yamaha Design “Synapses” NS-5000
2016 / PREMIUM BOOKSHELF SPEAKER
GOOD DESIGN AWARD
iF Design Award
German Design Award
Feel the emotion and joy of a performance just as it is, with a new speaker that achieves the ideal in Hi-Fi playback.
The NS-5000 has been designed to resemble the NS-1000M, which won acclaim for a left-right asymmetric design layout that expressed Yamaha’s dedication to sound creation. We have added new technology and materials to an authentic design, creating an elegant speaker that you will be able to use for a long time.
The removable protectors for the diaphragms are made of ZYLON®, which is the result of a combination of new technologies. They protect the speaker unit when it is not in use, while highlighting the appealing and high-quality design of the speaker’s finish.
A dedicated custom-made stand that was designed with the creation of sound in mind, to be integrated with the speaker. We paid close attention to each part, even the screws and washers, to create the sound of the NS-5000.
The mirrored finish of the enclosure, which was achieved by using a piano finish coating, can only have been crafted in the hands of a true master. This is an illustration of Yamaha’s approach toward manufacturing a product by not distinguishing between the creation of sound and the design.
