The Yamaha CD-N500 CD player is a CD player and network audio player in a single unit. In addition to your own CDs, it's simple to play audio sources downloaded from the Internet and stored on a PC or NAS system.

The Yamaha CD-N500 CD player provides a USB port on the front panel for quick connection of an iPod, iPhone, iPad or USB stick. You have instant access to all your stored music, and the digital connection ensures that you hear it with the highest possible sound quality.

You can also make network and other settings. The app is compatible with either iOS (iPod, iPhone, iPad) or Android OS. The NP Controller app includes a Music Play function that lets you stream music wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet. There's no need to change to another app to enjoy music streaming. Now it's quick and easy to select and hear the music stored on your smartphone via your audio system.

The Yamaha CD-N500 CD player beautifully reproduces all sources as they were meant to be heard, and has a design sense based on the Yamaha Hi Fi concept. The aluminium front panel with its simple yet high-quality hairline finish features a top-grade design with a rotary encoder that's convenient for network audio control. Perfectly matching other Yamaha Hi Fi components, the Yamaha CD-N500 party ensures a high level of owner satisfaction.

The carefully considered interior layout of the Yamaha CD-N500 CD player includes left-right symmetrical audio circuitry and provides the shortest circuit path for audio signal travel, allowing sound to be faithfully reproduced without loss of audio signal purity. Furthermore, all parts were rigorously selected, including the 192 KHz/32-bit Burr-Brown high precision DAC, highly regarded for audio use.

Compatible with the FLAC 192kHz/24-bit and Apple Lossless formats, the Yamaha CD-N500 CD player uses Yamaha's advanced network audio technology to ensure optimum performance with high-resolution audio sources.
