Yamaha's A-YST II: Amazing Bass Reproduction Technology
Yamaha's proprietary A-YST II (Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology II) delivers big-speaker bass from a compact cabinet. It's the reality and richness of the bass that you can feel as well as hear.
Sense of speed and clarity with a linear port
The unique port design strictly controls airflow during bass reproduction. This minimises port noise and further enhances the sensation of speed and clarity provided by the A-YST II system. The result is high-quality bass, well delineated and without even a trace of muddiness.
250W power amp: Superb sound + low energy consumption
The NS-SW500’s 250-watt power amp makes a full use of the Yamaha's expertise in the electronic circuit technology. Delivering bass that's both deep and tight while drawing just 80 watts of electric power, this system fully meets today's need for a quality sound and low energy consumption.
Extensive use of high-quality components
Yamaha's uncompromising dedication to sound quality finds expression in each and every part used in the NS-SW500, all carefully selected for optimal performance.
Auto standby circuitry to reduce unnecessary power consumption
The subwoofer amplifier automatically switches into standby mode whenever it detects no input for an extended period. That means efficient energy use, even if you leave the power on.
Low standby power consumption
The NS-SW500 is designed with the environment in mind, power consumption in standby mode is only 0.3W.
Worldwide compatibility via the connection panel
Connections include power supply linkage with the YSP series of digital sound projectors, making it easy to incorporate the NS-SW500 into your home theater system.
Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) is a unique system in which the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel out impedance so the speaker unit has a perfectly linear motion. Advanced YST helps to ensure the highest levels of sound pressure and overall performance.
QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses down-firing drivers with square, pyramid-shaped reflective plates to radiate the sound efficiently in four horizontal directions. The reflective plates negate any effects caused by the floor surface and reduce resonance between sound waves reflected from the floor and the unit.
