The CD-S3000BL CD player has a high-rigidity drive mechanism and innovative circuit design for loss-less audio. It breaks through to the ultimate in audio reproduction — and the very essence of music.

The CD-S3000 was created with meticulous care to ensure rigidity with superior vibration control properties and ultra-precise reading — to draw out all the music recorded to the disc. Yamaha incorporated a newly designed drive mechanism with added heavy anchors for Yamaha’s own original loader mechanism. Installing it on the chassis through the heavy anchors in front of and behind the loader mechanism achieves the highest rigidity and blocks the effects of vibrations from outside. At the same time, it also prevents vibration caused by rotation of the disc from affecting the circuit board. The anchor on the front features two layers and a screw-based adjustment mechanism. This allows for highly precise adjustment of the horizontal level of the front-back and left-right sides of the loader mechanism. Each CD-S3000 unit is assembled by first attaching the drive mechanism to the chassis, then carefully performing minute horizontal adjustments. While this process is time-consuming and labor-intensive, it demonstrates Yamaha’s genuine desire to realize the ultimate in precise signal reading. These efforts eliminate any minute tilting of the mechanism, achieving stable rotation and ultra-precise signal reading. Reducing the load of the servo which drives the pickup, in order to minimize the impact of servo current changes to the signal, provides a clean signal output that is virtually unaffected by noise. In addition, the loader mechanism has a structure in which a highly rigid chassis designed for integration with the loader mechanism supports the entire CD drive. Moreover, Yamaha applied only the strictest selection of parts for the pickup, which aims a beam of light at the disc as it rotates at high speed to read the signals and a drive mechanism which stably rotates the disc. This is how audio data on the disc is read with high precision to achieve the highest purity in reproduction.
