Buena Park, Calif. — Yamaha is combining old media and new media with the launch of its first networked CD player, the $799-suggested CD-N500.

 The network audio player, which is available, streams Internet radio stations via the vTuner radio-station database, features DLNA certification to stream music stored on networked PCs and NAS drives, and streams music from iOS, Android and Kindle Fire tablets outfitted with Yamaha’s Network Player Controller app. The apps also operate as remote controls for choosing music sources and viewing song information and album art.

The component also features front-panel Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad USB port to charge and play back music from the Apple devices.

Wi-Fi isn’t built in, but the component features an Ethernet port for networking.

Decoders include MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, 192 kHz/24-bit FLAC, and Apple Lossless.

The high-end component features aluminum front chassis, left-right symmetrical audio circuitry to provide the shortest audio-signal circuit path, 192 kHz/32-bit Burr-Brown DAC, and Pure Direct mode for higher quality audio output.

 “While most consumers have moved to accessing music via iTunes, music streaming and Internet radio, there are still many passionate digital music fans who also have large CD libraries that remain an important part of their entertainment experience,” said Tom Sumner, Yamaha senior VP. “The CD-N500 is a perfect transition piece for this audience since it enables them to better integrate all desired music sources.”
