The CD-N301 has a DC-out connection for the optional YWA-10 WiFi Adapter. This lets you stream music wirelessly via a router from network components such as a PC or NAS. The YWA-10 gets its power from the CD-N301’s USB terminal on rear panel, and offers WPS (auto setup) or manual setup via PC.
Compatibility with FLAC/WAV 192kHz/24bit playback is built in, bringing you the sound accuracy with rich expressive power that’s only possible from high resolution sources. Yamaha technologies refined over many years ensure high stability and reliability.
The CD-N301 beautifully reproduces all sources as they were meant to be heard, and has a design sense based on the Yamaha Hi Fi concept. The aluminum front panel with its simple yet high-quality hairline finish features a top-grade design with a rotary encoder that’s convenient for network audio control. Perfectly matching other Yamaha Hi Fi components, the CD-N301 ensures a high level of owner satisfaction.
The carefully considered interior layout includes an independent double power supply configuration for the CD and network power supplies, and provides the shortest circuit path for audio signal travel, allowing sound to be faithfully reproduced without loss of audio signal purity. Furthermore, all parts were rigorously selected, including the 192kHz/32-bit Burr-Brown high precision DAC, highly regarded for audio use. A Pure Direct mode can be selected for even higher quality audio output.
The CD-N301 has a power management function that detects when it hasn’t been used for a long time (about 8 hours) even though the power is on, and automatically shifts it into standby mode. So even if you forget to turn it off, power consumption will be minimised.
