New Flexible Mixer and Power Amplifiers For Yamaha CIS Range

The ongoing expansion of Yamaha’s flexible Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) range continues with a pair of new mixer and power amplifiers, which provide customers with an even greater number of options to configure a sound reinforcement system that precisely matches their needs.

The new MA2120 and PA2120 add more power and flexible features to the existing MA/PA amplifier range, which has proved ideal for high-quality audio systems that can be configured quickly and easily, with no need for software control.

The MA2120 mixer amplifier features six mic/line inputs and two stereo inputs with input mixing capability. The mic inputs feature 24V capability, with inputs five and six able to be used as mono sum inputs. A range of onboard DSP functions (feedback suppressor, priority ducker, leveller, compressor and reverb/echo) add flexibility to accommodate a wider range of applications.

The MA2120 also features stereo source EQ with an enhancer function for inputs seven and eight, output EQ for each of the two output channels, selectable HPF/LPF settings and optimised EQ presets for VXS/VXC speakers and VXS subwoofers – making it possible to install an entire, high quality audio system using just Yamaha MA/PA amplifiers and VXS/VXC loudspeakers.

The MA2120 and PA2120 are both 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 Yamaha DCP1V4S, DCP4V4S and DCP4S wall-mount control panels to a system for convenient remote control of output volumes and microphone on/off switching.

Both models support low impedance (120W, two channels at 4Ω and 100W, two channels at 3Ω or 8Ω selectable) as well as high impedance (120W two channels / 200W one channel, 70V/100V selectable) speaker systems. Both 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.

These new models are also certified by Energy Star, the internationally recognised standard of environmentally-friendly equipment and facilities. They also qualify as Yamaha Eco Products.

“We are very pleased to announce the addition of these new MA/PA power amplifier models to our acclaimed CIS line-up,” says Ken Hiraoka, Yamaha Pro Audio department manager. “With the addition of these and the new CIS series loudspeakers that we are also launching, Yamaha can provide both end users and installers with a broader range of options to easily configure a high-quality sound system and create the commercial atmosphere that best suits their vision.”

The MA2120 and PA2120 will be on show at Yamaha’s Stand 3-A90 at ISE2016, which takes place at the Amsterdam RAI from 9th-12th February.
