The balanced output achieves a completely balanced signal process from the cassette to the speakers
Together with the C-5000 preamplifier and M-5000 power amplifier, Yamaha delivers an end-to-end balanced signal chain across its flagship models for superior performance.
GT series design
Calling on the 'golden age' of Hi-Fi, the GT-5000 draws inspiration from Yamaha's original 'Gigantic and Tremendous' series of turntables - characterized by heavy wooden cases and a plate that served to dampen vibrations and provide enhanced performance.
Straight, short arm for openness and transparency of sound
Accurately recording the sound from the source is an essential first step in providing authentic, true Hi-Fi sound.
The flagship GT-5000 features a short, straight arm designed to provide superior stiffness as well as balance of weight and mechanics resulting in improved tracking.
A rigid mechanism with simple construction means there is no need for an internal counterweight.
Custom belt drive for stabilizer plate
The GT-5000's custom belt drive mechanism minimizes the impact of motor cogging and eliminates feedback control for an open and smooth sound.
The original GT concept used the concept of internal mass to counteract feedback control. This is upgraded with the GT-5000 which negates the feedback control via the belt drive.
Heavy aluminum plate of 5 kg
Further increasing stability and performance is the GT-5000's heavy aluminum plate, which weighs as much as 5 kg.
24-pole, 2-phase AC synchronous motor
The GT-5000 is driven by a 24-pole, 2-phase AC synchronous motor that generates an accurate sine wave.
Custom, durable legs
The GT-5000 exhibits exceptional rigidity and stability in its design - which extends to the specially designed feet that are custom-made for the flagship model.
Durable yet exemplifying the luxurious look and feel of the GT-5000, custom feet ensure high-fidelity audio performance.
Luxurious Piano Black finish
Worthy of flagship Hi-Fi status, the GT-5000 boasts a luxurious black gloss finish - reminiscent of a Yamaha concert grand piano - to perfectly match the C-5000 preamplifier, M-5000 power amplifier and NS-5000 flagship speakers.
