Yamaha CDX-593 CD-player

CDX-593 is a younger model in the line of the company in which a firmed system of digital data processing Pro-Bit is used. The main advantage of this system consists in using of developed algorithm for "musical" digit-analogue conversion, which calculates restored stream of all 20 bits on the basis of three serial data reading from 16-bit CD. So it approaches to studio recording maximum closely.

Being rightmost in traditional, almost endless line of small buttons, putting on the bottom of the panel by designer's hand, answers for electric level control on headphones and lineal output. This buttons are duplicated on the remote control too. Only this player has constant indication of the level on the display by strip of five segments allowing approximately evaluating the installed meaning. The player has the search through indexes in addition to music search; this is traditional for the company's devices. The remote control is traditional too. On recognizable traditional desk the placement of buttons is quite logic and handy.

Output resistance by engineers' idea has to consist standard 600 ohm (the measures showed acceptable deviation of 20-25 ohm less). Our specimen CDX-593 refused to play CD-R. However, the device played rather new discs, marked as X-Reflex (i.e. with increased reflection), without any problems.

Yamaha differed from all competitors by special relation to the scale of volumetric presentation of the picture. This feature is noticed with ear by a little more impressive power of chorus part. We can talk even about tone predilections: well audible male voices in chorus and powerful bass of organ prove saying above. The sound of Yamaha is rude and aggressive literally: the role of smallest echoes and reverberation decays is relatively less than in other devices. A soloist went out slightly forward at proscenium and literally had visible features. Yamaha in on event looks simple and univocal in sound. It gives all noticed space details clearly and without vulgarity. For example, emphasizing hissing consonants it doesn't forget to show that the record itself has all of this. So, the picture is quite notably scaled. What is in the end? The soloist became much closer to the audience and the chorus didn't stay on the spot (otherwise there would be a big distance between them). As a result you think that just moved from the second floor to the front row of the stalls.
