Two new Yamaha CIS products announced2 June 2014
Two new products are being added to Yamaha’s Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) series, the MA2030 Digital Mixer Amplifier and PA2030 Power amplifier, designed to operate in tandem.
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.
Yamaha Pro Audio PA manager Chihaya ‘Chick’ Hirai, says: “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.”
“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.”
