Perfectly Balanced

Together with the GT-5000 turntable and M-5000 power amplifier, Yamaha delivers an end-to-end balanced signal chain across its flagship models for premier performance.

Floating and Balanced Pre-amplifier

The C-5000 features fully balanced and discrete circuit transmission across all stages of the signal path at Tone Defeat.

The patented floating design is adopted across the phono EQ, input amp and line amp stages - removing the influence of ground noise from the signal.

 

Symmetrical, Folding-book Circuit Design

 
The folding-book design for the pre-amplifier PCB mirrors the left and right signal paths for precise matching and layout.

With each channel physically identical, the C-5000 is capable of the most accurate reproduction of audio which is both wide and deep.

Further, the ground loop is minimised when other components are connected.

Dual Toroidal Transformers

Adopting independent dual toroidal transformers for the left and right channels delivers optimal separation and therefore producing a sound stage which is faithful to the original source.

Low magnetic leakage lowers adverse impact on the audio signal. Following detailed research based on trial listening, the power transformer was enclosed in a copper-plated case to suppress magnetic flux and vibration. This also assists in minimising the influence of flux in the phono circuit.

This realises a gentle, calm and even spacious sound due to enhanced reproduction of detailed signals.
