Made for each other
Yamaha's famed Hi-Fi components adopt a simple, beautiful front panel with aluminium hairline finish. The NP-S303 is cut from this same design mold, and when combined with other Yamaha devices, it harmonises beautifully and enhances the entire setup, creating a stylishly elegant audio space.
Alexa on MusicCast
Amazon Alexa-enabled devices — including Echo, Dot, Tap and Show — can now control key functions of any MusicCast product using voice commands. Discover a new, exciting way to control music and entertainment experiences in your home.
Slim size, enormous quality
Despite its slim body, the NP-S303 packs a wealth of knowhow and technology inside, cultivated by Yamaha's long experience of Hi-Fi development. Starting with meticulously selected high sound quality parts, the signal path has been minimised, analog and digital circuits have been given completely separate blocks, and noise generation has been thoroughly suppressed.
Experience high resolution
The NP-S303 supports an extensive variety of high resolution audio formats. Feel the very breath of the vocals, bask in the airy atmosphere of a concert hall — and experience all of the performance as never before.
