Yamaha's versatile CD-S300 not only plays your CDs, including home-burned MP3 and WMA mix discs, but it also gives you a front-panel USB port for plugging in your iPod. This lets you take advantage of the CD player's high-performance digital-to-analog converter — a big improvement over the iPod's built-in DAC — for the best sound quality from your portable music library. Either way you play it, you'll enjoy great-sounding music through your home stereo system.

The CD-S300's sophisticated internal design includes isolated power supplies for the digital and analog sections, a high-quality digital-to-analog converter, and short signal paths that minimize the chances of interference or signal loss. The end result is richly detailed sound with engaging warmth and musicality. You can improve sound quality even further with Pure Direct mode, which turns off the front panel display and the digital audio output to eliminate sources of potential noise.

Designed to Deliver Enjoyable Sound Quality

Inheriting many of the sound quality features of the S2000/S1000 Series components, the CD-S300 CD player delivers sound that will satisfy devoted music fans. In addition to CDs, it also provides high quality play of music files stored on digital audio players like iPod or USB memory devices via a USB port on the front panel.

Pure Direct

The CD-S300 offers Pure Direct, which is the same popular feature included in Yamaha amplifiers and receivers. By pressing the button on the front panel or on the remote control, it shuts down the digital audio output and turns off the display. This achieves the lowest possible noise interference and, therefore, the highest sound quality of the analog audio output.

Extremely Sophisticated Circuitry and Layout

Yamaha technicians devoted a great deal of time and effort to designing the overall interior layout of parts and circuit boards, a factor that significantly affects sound quality. As a result, the power supplies for the motor drive, display and USB sections, as well as the digital, and analog sections are individually isolated, eliminating electromagnetic interference among them. To achieve ideal weight balance for stable performance, the drive mechanism is located in the center of the unit.

Short Signal Paths

The highly logical and symmetrical internal layout of parts and circuit boards are designed to keep the signal paths on each board as short as possible. This purposeful design also keeps the paths between sections straight and short, minimizing the chance of signal loss or interference, something not easy to achieve.

Well Matched, High Quality Parts

Each of the individual elements in a CD player influences the sound quality, which is why Yamaha puts a great deal of effort into the selection and matching of parts and materials. A high-grade acoustic capacitor, a new lownoise, high-gain bandwidth op amp and the use of damping material under the transformer and around the signal cables are just a few examples of Yamaha’s commitment to great sound quality. In short, the CD-S300’s internal sophistication is on a level generally found on much more expensive models.

High Performance D/A Converter

Utilizing a Burr Brown 192 kHz/24-bit DAC, the high performance D/A conversion system takes full advantage of the digital technology refined by Yamaha over a period of many years, ensuring excellent conversion precision, S/N ratio and dynamic range.

Laser Pickup Floating Mechanism

The laser pickup is isolated on a floating mechanism so its delicate operation cannot be affected by vibration.

Intelligent Digital Servo

Conventional tracking servo circuitry cannot completely overcome errors caused by a warped disc, dust and other defects. This system uses a dependable DSP (Digital Signal Processor), exclusive for CDs, to monitor the signal, adjusting pickup tracking and focus, as well as spindle motor speed, to compensate for any problems.

Enjoy Your MP3 and WMA Music

The USB port on the front panel gives you an easy way to enjoy high quality sound from MP3 or WMA digital music files stored on USB players and memory devices, as well as on memory cards mounted on USB card readers. You can also play files recorded on CD-R/RW discs.

Enjoy iPod® Music at Maximum Quality

Using a USB cable, you can plug your iPod into the USB port to enjoy your music library via your audio system. The digital signal is sent to the CD player with no degradation. It is then converted to analog by the high performance DAC and transmitted to the amplifier by the high quality audio circuitry, allowing you to hear your music at the highest possible quality level. As iPod or USB audio data input from the USB port can also be output by digital-out terminals (optical or coaxial), digital signals can be transmitted “as is” to amps or audio systems with digital inputs.* You can use the remote control to command the play, pause, skip and forward/ backward functions, and the song, artist and album names will displayed. Compatible iPods are the iPod classic (including 120GB classic), iPod nano (2nd Gen., 3rd Gen., 4th Gen.) and iPod touch (1st Gen. and 2nd Gen.). When the power is on and USB mode is selected, the iPod charges automatically.

*When connected to the digital input of a recording device, copying is prohibited due to copy protection and recording cannot be done.

3-Mode CD Text Display

Information about the currently playing CD is shown right on the CD player’s display. The 3-mode CD Text display shows the CD’s title, the artist’s name and the title of the track.

Programmable Play

It’s extremely easy to program the tracks you want to hear in any order. You can clear the program at any time with a single touch.

• 10-key direct track and direct access
• Random play
• Repeat play (full/single)
• 3-mode time display
• 4 illumination levels
• Last track resume

Yamaha Factory Refurbished

Buying a Yamaha Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged with original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Yamaha product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Yamaha repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 714-522-9888)

Yamaha, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Yamaha certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Yamaha Factory Refurbished" product.

Most units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10). Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we can’t provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.

5.0 1 YAMAHA CD-S300 Single-Disc CD Player

New Life to CD Collection

5 YAMAHA CD-S300 Single-Disc CD Player
Reviewer: from Troy, NY, USA
I bought this refurbished Yamaha CD-S300 to replace a ten year old Sony SACD player after much research. Many reviewers have said that they wished they had upgraded to this model much earlier. And now I know why. All of my music sounds better, Jazz, Pop, Rock and Roll. As a bonus, my Yamaha Receiver's remote works both units. Anyway, there is a depth to the music that was not present before. I especially notice piano and bass that was somewhat muted before the upgrade. It seems like I have replaced my collection with pristine newer copies, but all I had to do was upgrade my CD Player. Highly recommended.
