The CD-S303RK compact disc player rack-mountable from Yamaha offers high sound quality and easy operation, along with special Yamaha features such as Pure Direct, Intelligent Digital Servo and USB compatibility.

The CD-S303RK 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.

The overall interior layout of parts and circuit boards were designed by Yamaha technicians. These design elements significantly affect sound quality, so technicians individually isolated power supplies, digital, and analog sections to eliminate electromagnetic interference among them. The drive mechanism is located at the center of the unit, achieving the ideal weight balance for stable performance. 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, lowering the chance of signal loss or interference.

A high-grade acoustic capacitor, a new low-noise, 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 the Yamaha commitment to great sound quality. In short, the CD-S303RK's internal sophistication is on a level generally found on much more expensive models.

Utilizing a 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.

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.

USB port allows you to play high-quality sound from MP3, WMA, LPCM, AAC or FLAC digital music files stored on USB memory devices. Files recorded on CD-R/RW discs can also be played. Text display shows information about the currently playing CD on the front panel. With audio CDs you can use Program Play to program the tracks you want to hear in any order.
