Yamaha’s VXS Series lineup will include VXS3F, VXS3FW, VXS3FT and VXS3FTW; while MA2120 and PA2120 will add power to MA/PA power amp Series
With addition of 4 new speakers and 2 new power amps, customers will have broader range of options to configure high-quality sound system

Yamaha has announced new additions to the Commercial Installation Solutions lineup that have been specifically designed for small to mid-sized installations with a focus on BGM applications in particular: VXS3F, VXS3FW, VXS3FT and VXS3FTW surface mount speakers, as well as the MA2120 and PA2120 power amplifiers.

Drawing from decades of accrued experience and know-how 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 CIS lineup is continuously expanding to provide more flexibility and meet the specific demands of our users. 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 sound reinforcement system that best suits their needs.

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

New VXS Series F surface mount speaker models

The new VXS Series F models feature a more compact enclosure design compared to the standard VXS5 and VXS8 models, offering additional flexibility for varying installation environments. They also feature an attractive elegantly curved form that merges effortlessly into restaurants, cafes, or retail stores interiors. They 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 larger number of speakers.

New MA/PA power amplifier models

The two new, durable MA2120 and PA2120 power amplifiers are ideal for configuring simple, small to mid-sized installations with an easy setup and no computers. Both models support low impedance (120W x2ch @4? / 100W x2ch @3?, 8? 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. These new models are certified by ENERGY STAR, the internationally recognised standard of environmentally-friendly equipment and facilities, and also qualify as Yamaha Eco Products**.

The MA2120 comes equipped with 6 mic/line inputs and 2 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 & Echo) also add 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, optimised 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 a 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.

“We are very pleased to announce the addition of four new VXS surface mount speakers and two new MA/PA power amplifier models to our acclaimed Commercial Installation Solutions lineup,” commented Ken Hiraoka, Yamaha Pro Audio Department Manager. “With the addition of these new models 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.”
