Smaller Installations Benefit from New Yamaha CIS Mixer and Power Amplifiers

UK - Yamaha’s Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) series is receiving two major product additions in the form of the MA2030 Digital Mixer Amplifier and PA2030 Power Amplifier. Designed to operate in tandem, the cost-effective units are the ideal combination for small-to-mid sized applications.

Yamaha’s experience of designing user friendly interfaces has resulted in deceptively simple control panels, which allow for fast setup and straightforward daily operation. Yet the MA2030 features powerful DSP functions for the background music market, including a feedback canceller, ducker and auto leveller.

The MA2030 features two microphone inputs, one on an XLR/6.3mm combi jack and a Euroblock connector, plus three stereo inputs - two for RCA plugs and one for a stereo 3.5mm plug. A pair of RCA line outputs connect the MA2030 to the PA2030, while both units feature barrier strip loudspeaker outputs.

Both models feature a Class D amplifier circuit, delivering 30w into two channels at 3 or 4 ohms selectable, or 60w into one channel at 70V/100V line. The fanless design keeps noise and power consumption to a minimum and the units are designed to precisely match Yamaha’s CIS series loudspeakers.

Each is 1u high and a half rack unit wide, allowing them to be mounted side by side using the optional RKH1 rackmount kit. An optional Yamaha DCP1V4S wall mounted controller can be connected to the MA2030 via a Cat5e cable.

Operating the MA2030 and PA2030 in tandem is the ideal solution for a small-to-mid sized, two zone system - such as in the retail, food and drink trades. Alternatively, the MA2030 can be operated as a standalone unit for a single zone system, for example in a lecture room, boardroom or for smaller retail outlets.

"Since we introduced the CIS series, users have been asking for a compact, flexible and highly cost-effective mixer/amplifier for smaller systems which don’t require the higher end facilities of the MTX series matrix processors and XMV series power amplifiers," says Chihaya ‘Chick’ Hirai, Yamaha Pro Audio PA manager. "The MA2030 and PA2030 are a solution to answer those requests, but which don’t compromise on the quality or reliability which are a Yamaha hallmark."

The new products will make their worldwide trade show debut at PALM 2014 in Beijing, China on May 26-29, with production due to start around the same time.
