Yamaha Showcases New Flagship Loudspeakers And More At ProLight+Sound 2018


At ProLight+Sound 2018, Yamaha is launching the DZR and DXS-XLF series of powered loudspeakers - a new, accessible class of fully-integrated, ‘smart’ units with flagship specifications and features, including Dante audio networking. With passive counterparts - the CZR and CXS-XLF series - also being launched and the company’s latest digital mixing innovations on show, Yamaha’s presence at ProLight+Sound is not to be missed.

The exceptional flexibility and great sound of Yamaha loudspeakers has long been the choice of live bands, DJs, presentations and corporate functions in small-to-medium sized venues, as well as houses of worship, clubs and other installations.

Delivering exceptional audio quality and best-in-class power, the new, four-model DZR series features Yamaha’s latest developments in loudspeaker, DSP, Class-D amplification and cabinet design.

In addition, each model also has an identical ‘D-version’ counterpart, which features onboard Dante audio networking. When used with Yamaha CL/QL/TF series digital mixing consoles and/or networked audio products, the Dante-fitted models deliver a cutting edge networking and control solution for both portable and permanent audio systems.

DZR range loudspeakers deliver stunning bass, but the new DXS-XLF 18˝ and 15˝ subwoofers are the perfect complement for really getting to the bottom end of things, with Cardioid Mode available for use with multi-sub applications.

The new CZR and CXS-XLF range has also been introduced for applications where passive loudspeakers are preferred, delivering high power handling and outstanding sonic performance in a rugged-yet-portable design. Like the powered versions, these passive models are suitable for a wide range of live performance and installed sound environments.

Yamaha will also be highlighting the new RIVAGE PM7 digital mixing system and other new innovations, including the updated R series Dante I/O racks, Version 2 firmware for RIVAGE PM10 (which brings the latest facilities to the entire RIVAGE PM family) and flexible StageMix and ProVisionaire control apps.

ProLight+Sound takes place at Frankfurt Messe from 10th-13th April. Yamaha is exhibiting on Stand E50, Hall 3.1 alongside high end touring loudspeaker manufacturer Nexo, together forming a truly full-scope industry supplier.

Yamaha will also have an extensive presence at Musikmesse, which takes place at Frankfurt Messe from 11th - 14th April. Exhibiting in the Portalhaus, mixing consoles, loudspeakers, monitors, portable PA systems - including the new STAGEPAS BT series - and Line 6 wireless microphone solutions will be on show, alongside many other products from Yamaha, Line 6 and Steinberg.
