NS-690Speaker System / 1973
This bookshelf speaker has won over many admirers with its natural and exquisite "European sound" and lovely natural wood cabinet.
An honest approach along with the wide range, low distortion, and wide directional characteristics played a decisive role in establishing how customers associate Yamaha speakers with the concept of natural sound.
The speaker unit was a completely new design. The technology behind the soft dome midranges and tweeters set the standard for later Yamaha speakers.
