The GT-5000 turntable features a carbon fiber and copper-plated aluminium tonearm, and a custom belt-drive system.

Both the The C-5000 pre-amp and M-5000 amp are copper-plated and have been designed to reduce unwanted vibrations.

Drawing on the legacy of Yamah’s NS-1000 speaker, the new three-way bookshelf speaker boasts improved sound quality and reduced interference through its newly developed Acoustic Absorber.

The amp and pre-amp are available now, while the speakers will be released end of October, with the turntable to follow in 2020.
