Yamaha NS-800A (per pair)

The NS-800A is a 2-way speaker that offers faithful, uncompromising reproduction of the timbre of all musical instruments and a spacious soundstage.

Luxurious with spacious sound

Yamaha, the renowned musical instrument manufacturer, designed the NS-800A bookshelf-sized speaker based on a combination of rich aesthetics with the latest advanced technology. Yamaha's unique Harmonious Diaphragm™ produces exceptionally uniform tone, while the large-capacity spatial cabinet delivers an expansive and lush sound field. And all this is complemented by the beautiful finish like that of a grand piano that makes your listening experience even more luxurious.

Style of our pianos

The elegant design of Yamaha's NS-800A is a fusion of piano style and speaker design philosophy. Yamaha's signature glossy finish is also applied to these speakers, with the same process used for our grand pianos - a process reserved for a limited number of products in Yamaha's lineup. With this elegant finish, the speaker is a stylish piece of furniture that provides a sense of satisfaction even when you're not listening to music.

True sound

This is sound that only Yamaha can achieve, as the only audio brand in the world that addresses everything from the moment a sound is created to the moment it reaches the human ear. Close your eyes and be overwhelmed by the feeling of the artist right in front of you, and experience the impressive feeling of truly being "closer to the artist.

Tone Balance

Every ear hears the world differently. Yamaha reproduces sound as the artist intended. Reproducing sonic elements at the correct pitch, such as vocals and instruments, requires passion and precision. Yamaha achieves this through tonal balance, enriching harmonies and recreating musicality. As a result, you'll hear sound you've never heard before.

Perfectly uniform tone

Getting the sound of musical instruments heard the way they sound. As a world-renowned brand of musical instruments, Yamaha is relentlessly committed to this mission. To achieve this mission, we created industry-leading speakers with a design concept of consistent tone color across the entire frequency spectrum and applied unique technology to make it happen. Each speaker unit of the NS-800A uses the newly developed Harmonious Diaphragm™ - made from a blend of ZYLON® (which has excellent sound speed and minimal internal dissipation) and spruce (which is used in the keyboard of Yamaha's grand pianos and is essential for transmitting sound). This brings out the harmony of the sound and makes the music sound richer and more beautiful.


As opposed to just producing a powerful sound, we strive for a sense of dynamics that expresses the contrast between stillness and movement in the music. This allows you to feel the intensely deep emotions in the music and allows you to fully immerse yourself in that musical world.

Total music reproduction

Yamaha's patented RS (Resonance Suppression) compartments are mounted on the back of the tweeter to faithfully reproduce even the finest nuances of musical instruments and voices. Two specially shaped tubes eliminate unwanted tube resonance generated behind the diaphragm, bringing the original sound to life and preserving the smallest musical nuances.

Faithful musical reproduction

Conventional speakers use a large amount of sound-absorbing material to eliminate internal standing waves in the cabinet. In the NS-800A, we used our patented absorption element to eliminate standing waves and minimized the amount of sound-absorbing material. Thus, the original character of music is reproduced full of energy and dynamics.


The position of the artist and instrument, and even the refined nuances and entire atmosphere of the performance space are reproduced amazingly well. The resulting soundstage is so incredibly realistic that it feels like you are personally present at the performance.

Strong musical vibration control

The basis for producing excellent sound - determining how the enclosure sounds and where vibrations should be suppressed - is much the same in making musical instruments as it is in making loudspeakers. The NS-800A's cabinet construction incorporates advanced speaker design technology. This makes full use of laser vibration meters, which are used in musical instrument research and development, and advanced Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis. The transverse section of the cabinet is optimally braced, ensuring overwhelming spatial expression, so that it feels as if the artists are right in front of you.

Seamless sonic performance

The NS-800A is the headpiece of our flagship series and features the highest quality crossover circuit components. Here, Mundorf's MCap® SUPREME Classic audio capacitor is combined with an extra-large woofer coil. The German company Mundorf is known as the ultimate in audio capacitors.

Twisted flare port

The speaker features Yamaha's original Twisted Flare Port, which modifies the way air is dispersed to the end of the port by providing a slight twist to reduce the noise of airflow around the port, which is a common problem with conventional bass-reflex speakers. This results in an exceptionally accurate response with clear, tight bass.

Sense of excellence

The speaker terminals have an original design, with a shape that fits comfortably in the hand. This not only gives a feeling of luxury, you also attach them effortlessly.
