Our take on the Yamaha CD-S1000

by Loren Barstow
Yamaha

Yamaha knows high-quality sound — they're the world's leading producer of musical instruments. Now they've applied their years of experience and know-how to develop the CD-S1000 — a Super Audio CD player designed from the ground up for top-notch audio reproduction.

Heavy-duty build quality for crystal-clear sound
You'll immediately appreciate the CD-S1000's solid feel and refined looks, created by its vibration-fighting metal and wood chassis. The die-cast aluminum disc tray also combats resonance, and employs Yamaha's Silent Loader mechanism for super-smooth and quiet operation.

The CD-S1000's power supply has four separate sections — one apiece for the digital circuitry, analog circuitry, motor drive, and display. This arrangement minimizes cross-interference that can degrade sound quality. The left and right channels each have their own power circuits and digital-to-analog converters, enabling this player to produce detailed, neutral sound with superior stereo separation.

Plays your Super Audio CDs and more
Pop a Super Audio CD into the CD-S1000 to experience the robust, densely layered sound this high-resolution format delivers. This player can also help you rediscover classics from your CD collection by revealing subtle nuances you may not have heard before. It even plays home-burned discs, plus your MP3 and WMA compilations. No matter what you're listening to, you'll enjoy ear-pleasing sound that's warm, lifelike, and above all, musical. And with a push of a button on the front panel, you can engage Pure Direct mode, which turns off the display and digital outputs. Eliminating these two potential noise sources lets you experience the clearest possible audio reproduction.

Sounds better given time.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
CD: 4 out of 5 stars because the unit did not meet the high expectations placed on it by other reviewers and by the product description. So, right out of the box this is a supremely gratifying purchase. Solid, heavy, superb build quality. Wow! Satisfaction sank to disappointment when I started playing discs: Loud disc drive can be heard during quiet passages; slow to initialize disc reading; sonics (spacial and dynamics) were really below par for a product so hyped! But read on, because after about a week of playing, this player came to life! I am listening via a Yamaha CA-1010 integrated and Apogee Stage ribbons - these dipoles really throw a huge sound stage. So while at first the CDS1000 failed to produce this stage, it did after about 50 hours of break-in. I've never been a believer in "break-in" for electronics, but now I am! This CD player is up to the job on classical and jazz albums, but it won't make something out of nothing - a bad recording still sounds bad. Music lovers are still at the mercy of recording engineers. Just give the player a little time to come alive, and you won't be disappointed.

SACD comments: I have a very transparent system, and SACD adds almost nothing to the sound in this instance. I did hear greater dynamics (the 100db vs 115db dynamic range) but again, we are at the mercy of the recording engineer.

The "Mercury Living Presence" are still the best records after 60 years. Feed the CDS1000 your best CDs for it to shine!
Pros:
Great CD player with solid quality feel and nice simple remote. Lightening fast track selection. Fit and finish are superb. Excellent dynamics in CD and SACD. Not quite as satisfying to listen to or live with as the NAD C565BEE player (my only other reference), but a really beauty to look at!
Cons:
Noisy disc drive and slow disc initialization. Finicky drive can play only perfect discs - drive is very noisy if disc is not perfectly flat or hole is not exactly centered. Hence, drive can at times sound like a cloths washer on spin cycle with imperfect discs. Care is required to place the CD in the drawer exactly, otherwise the slim drawer slot could cause a loading disaster. Break-in required to improve sound!. Nothing special about the SACD capability except for improved dynamics!

simply the best

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This player is pretty spendy. But if you love good sound from favorite cds, there is nothing finer. Buy it and you'll become a believer. My old cd player was hardly a cheap one--but this one blows it out of the water.
Pros:
Works beautifully in every way. Old world craftsmanship to boot. Simply beautifully made.
Cons:
Does not match yamaha components design wise.
