Yamaha Adds Dante to Loudspeakers and Subwoofers
Yamaha today announced the addition of new lines of powered (DZR/DXS-XLF) and passive (CZR/CXS-XLF) loudspeakers and subwoofers to its pro audio lineup, offering enhanced performance and professional sound quality.
The DZR line of powered speakers, along with the DXS-XLF powered subwoofers, have digital processing in all powered models – both speakers and subwoofers – is all done at 96kHz. According to Yamaha, this high speed, combined with the newly developed Advanced FIR-X tuning technology, minimizes latency and phase distortion.
The DZR and DXS series are also available with Dante integration. These “D” models incorporate smart system integration with Yamaha Consoles and other Dante devices via a 2in/2out I/O configuration. Using the Analog I/O and the Dante break-IN and break-OUT capabilities inside these speakers makes flexible routing and system configuration options easy to set up.
The CZR series of passive speakers are ideal for those installations where power amplifiers are used remotely. Adding their companion CXS-XLF subwoofers will extend a sound system’s bottom end dramatically (down to 29Hz) for more bass-heavy applications, and like their powered counterparts, the CZR and CXS-XLF feature best-in-class SPL performance. When paired with Yamaha PX Series amplifiers or other compatible processors, the loudspeakers take full advantage of dedicated speaker processor tuning settings to produce DZR-quality sound.
Every model in the new powered and passive speaker lines is housed in a lightweight, durable, 15mm-thick plywood cabinet, coated with military-grade polyurea to withstand the rigors of travel, handling and weather. The cabinets are equipped with plenty of flypoints, suitable for standard eyebolts and specialized U-brackets for convenient flying and hanging installation.
All the specs are here.
