  • Summary: If you’ve got a wide selection of CDs or SACDs, you’ll notice a difference stepping up to a dedicated CD player like the CD-S2000. Of course, just like with other high-end components you need the appropriate system to take advantage of that jump in sound quality.
  • Pros: Extremely high precision and fidelity, leaps and bounds ahead of a generic CD player
  • Cons: Display is a little hard to read at distance

Yamaha CD-S2000

What Hi-Fi?
5 July 2008
  • Excerpt: If we were to dwell on the tangibles of a CD player's quality of build and finish, as well as the not-quite-so-tangibles of pride of ownership and desirability, then the Yamaha CD-S2000 would beat the opposition hands down. Thanks to its beautifully milled aluminium fascia, its wooden side panels and its ineffably tactile control buttons, the Yamaha is a joy to behold and to use – it's even got one of the smartest remote controls we've seen.
  • Pros: Tremendous perceived value, full-on specification, undemonstrative but nevertheless involving to listen to
  • Cons: Lacks the discipline to bring rhythms fully under control
