Yamaha Caters For All At ProLight+Sound 2016

Apr, 2016

Yamaha’s presence at ProLight+Sound 2016 will include a wide range of new and recently-launched products, which cater for applications throughout the professional audio industry.

Yamaha is using ProLight+Sound and MusikMesse to launch the PX series, a brand new range of power amplifiers which combine the company’s latest DSP technology and decades of professional audio excellence into an advanced yet extremely cost-effective package, which is ideal for both live and installed audio.

Also being launched is the RPio222 I/O rack, a compact variation of the current RPio622 I/O rack for the flagship RIVAGE PM10 digital mixing system, which is already on tour in the US and will be on demonstration. In addition, the latest software upgrades for the CL, QL and TF ranges of mixing consoles will be on demonstration, the latter shown with the new Tio1608-D rackmount i/o units and NY64-D Dante i/o expansion card.

Another major advance on demonstration at Frankfurt is Dolby Atmos® for Nuage. Transporting the listener ‘inside’ a soundscape, Dolby Atmos makes for a much more lifelike aural experience of films and video games and a whole new perception of music.

Further new products being shown at the show and MusikMesse 2016 are the EMX2 portable powered mixer, the DXS18 powered subwoofer, SWP1 network switches and HPH-MT7 professional monitoring headphones.

The EMX2 is a lightweight,10 channel powered mixer, designed to allow even users with no previous audio experience to easily configure a sound reinforcement system. Designed to be used in a wide range of applications and environments, it is extremely intuitive to use and includes Yamaha’s high quality reverb processing, digital feedback suppression and the unique 1-Knob Master EQ™.

Powered by a 1020W Class-D amplifier and featuring a 18” woofer and 4” voice coil, the DXS18 powered subwoofer delivers an impressive 136dB maximum SPL with extended response down to 32Hz, yet with exceptional clarity and minimal distortion. Featuring Yamaha's proprietary DSP technology, it includes low frequency processing, a selectable crossover and Cardioid Mode setting for systems with two or more units.

Launched at the ISE show in February, the SWP1 series is the first range of network switches designed and produced specifically for the professional audio industry. Now shipping SWP1 switches offer a comprehensive set of Ethernet features and very straightforward, plug-and-play operation, with instant DIP switch recalling of optimised Dante setups.

Meanwhile, the closed back HPH-MT7 headphones are specifically designed to meet the high standards of professional users, both live and in the studio, with 40mm custom drivers equipped with CCAW voice coils and powerful neodymium magnets that deliver flat, high-resolution sound with precise stereo imaging at any sound pressure level.

“2016 is shaping up to be a truly dynamic year for Yamaha. The growing CIS series of installation products alongside new ‘vital but unseen’ hardware - including interfaces, Dante switches and more - is taking the business in a new direction. Yamaha is becoming a true ‘one stop shop’ for professional live or installed audio systems of any scale and scope,” says Nils Peter-Keller, Pro Audio Division Director at Yamaha Music Europe.

Yamaha is exhibiting at Hall 3.1, Booth E50 at ProLight+Sound 2016, which takes place at Frankfurt Messe from 5th - 8th April 2016 and Hall PH.V, Stand A01 at MusikMesse, which takes place at the same venue from 7th - 10th April 2016.
