The Yamaha CD-S2000 is an upscale super-audio CD player built as a step up from the CD-S1000. It also plays both CDs and Super Audio CDs (SA-CDs), but adds along additional components for enhance playback: full-stage balanced transmission, pure direct circuitry, and superior differential D/A converts. The result is a reduced harmonic distortion (down to .0017%) with SA-CD playback. Keep in mind though that regular CD playback still registers at .002%. Note also that Yamaha urges customers to purchase the A-S2000 integrated amplifier—supposedly built as a perfect match to the Yamaha CD-S2000.
