Yamaha Bookshelf-Speaker NS-3000

The NS-3000 is a breakthrough in high-fidelity speaker design – fusing the latest innovation with an unparalleled musical heritage to convey the finest nuances in the music.

  • ZYLON™ drivers boast a sound velocity comparable to beryllium yet possessing the characteristic softness of textiles
  • New 16 cm woofer paired with NS-5000 tweeter
  • R.S. (Resonance Suppression) Chamber to suppress unwanted resonance
  • New acoustic absorber optimized for the NS-3000

The NS-3000 presents a seamless transition across bass, mid-range and high-end frequencies, thanks to the use of ZYLON™ in both units. A remarkable continuity in tone across frequencies delivers a distinctively accurate yet abundantly emotional sound.



Cabinet rigidity is imperative in ensuring audio integrity. Reflecting technologies employed in the NS-5000, FEM analysis and laser measurements were used to determine optimal reinforcing of the cross piece, suppressing “box ringing” caused by delayed vibration from the six surfaces of the enclosure.


Demonstrating its lineage, the NS-3000 inherits the same tweeter as the NS-5000. The RS Chamber on the rear of the tweeter cancel tube resonance that can forcibly move the diaphragm and therefore impact the accuracy of the audio.



Designed specifically for the NS-3000, the new acoustic absorber reduces the impact of internal standing waves while simultaneously reducing the need for sound absorbing material. Consequently, musical energy remains distinctly evident.



Representative of the flagship series, the NS-3000 adopts the highest quality parts for the crossover circuit. The MCap® SUPREME EVO audio capacitor made by Mundorf of Germany, renowned as the pinnacle in audio-use capacitor, is used along with a huge woofer coil.




Cut from pure brass, the speaker terminals undertake to deliver absolute signal integrity through a highly secure connection. Further, their shape comfortably fits with the human hand for a luxurious feel while simultaneously allowing for effortless tightening.
