Yamaha Releases New Surface Mount Speakers and Power Amplifiers Today

header_poweramp_mapa_02_mainFebruary 1, 2016 — Yamaha Corporation Japan has announced today new additions to the Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) lineup that have been specifically designed for small to mid-sized installations. With a focus particularly on background music and paging applications, the new VXS3F, VXS3FW, VXS3FT and VXS3FTW surface mount speakers, as well as the MA2120 and PA2120 power amplifiers will be added to the continually evolving CIS Series.

Drawing from decades of experience in the sound reinforcement and touring markets, Yamaha developed the CIS lineup in 2012 in order to create the most appealing, effective sonic environments for commercial installation applications.

“The new CIS products will provide more flexibility and meet the specific demands of our customers, states Marc Lopez, marketing manager, Yamaha Professional Audio, commercial audio products. With the addition of four new surface mount speakers and two new power amplifier models, customers will have a more flexible range of options to configure a high-quality sound reinforcement system that best suits the specific application requirement.”

The VXS Series lineup will now include the most compact models yet: the VXS3F, VXS3FW, VXS3FT and VXS3FTW. The new MA2120 and PA2120 power amplifiers will add more power and flexible features to the Yamaha MA/PA Series that has proven ideal for configuring simple, high-quality sound systems.

The new VXS Series F models feature a more compact enclosure design offering additional flexibility for varying installation environments. They feature an attractive elegantly curved form that functions effortlessly in restaurants, cafes, or retail store interiors. The speakers have also been tuned specifically to deliver the highest quality music playback, and the compact, full-range speaker unit can project to a wide, consistent coverage area even at low volume levels. Two variations are provided for different installation requirements: the VXS3F and VXS3FW (low impedance models) are ideal for smaller spaces that can be serviced by a small number of speakers, while the VXS3FT and VXS3FTW (high impedance models) are perfect for larger or more complex areas that require a greater number of speakers.

The two new, durable MA2120 and PA2120 power amplifiers are ideal for configuring simple, small to mid-sized installations providing easy setup without the use of computers. Both models support low impedance (120W x2ch @4Ω/100W x2ch @3Ω, 8Ω selectable) as well as high impedance (120W x2ch/200W x1ch, 70V/100V selectable) speaker systems. Both models are equipped with highly efficient Class-D amplifiers and intelligent protection features in the power supply and amplifier unit to ensure safe, worry-free operation. The new models have been certified by ENERGY STAR*, the internationally recognized standard of environmentally friendly equipment and facilities, and also qualify as Yamaha Eco Products**

The MA2120 comes equipped with six mic/line inputs and two stereo inputs with input mixing capability. The mic inputs feature 24V capability, and input 5 and 6 can be used as MONO SUM inputs. A range of onboard DSP functions (Feedback Suppressor, Priority Ducker, Leveler, Compressor and Reverb, and Echo) adds flexibility to accommodate a wider range of applications. The MA2120 also features stereo source EQ with an enhancer function for input 7 and 8, output EQ for each of the two output channels, optimized speaker EQ settings for VXS/VXC speakers and VXS subwoofer, and selectable HPF/LPF settings.

Both the MA2120 and PA2120 are capable of controlling input sources for applications with two different zones, such as a retail store with two floors or a restaurant with a seating area and separate bar area. For larger spaces, an additional PA2120 can be added to expand the system and accommodate additional zones. Users can also add DCP1V4S, DCP4V4S and DCP4S wall-mount control panels to a system for convenient remote control of output volumes and microphone on/off switching for ease of use by the establishment’s staff.
