With the purchase of five more systems, eminent UK audio service provider SSE Audio Group now has a total of ten Yamaha PM5D-RH digital mixing consoles in its hire inventory.

The rental company also has several rackmount DSP5s at its disposal.

As in 2010, SEE is deploying PM5D-RH at monitors for a raft of festival commitments, including Download, High Voltage, Lovebox, Oxegen, Global Gathering, T4 On the Beach, Field Day, Summer Sundae and both V Festival sites.

“The all-digital setups were a real success story last year,” said SSE sales manager Alex Penn. “It was an easy decision to invest in further PM5D-RHs as our festival and touring commitments grow ever bigger. The introduction of the DSP5D acting as a master output matrix between the two PM5D-RH monitor consoles has been another successful improvement for the 2011 season. As well as being the ideal monitor console, the PM5D is also well-suited to the demanding environment of the UK’s fields, parks and aerodromes!”

Karl Christmas, senior manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio (UK) added: “We are really pleased that the PM5D-RH is SSE’s console of choice for festival monitors. There can’t be many other large format digital consoles that are used in such numbers by a single rental company, which is testament to the PM5D’s reliability and ease of use. It continues to satisfy the ever higher expectations of the professional audio industry.”

The PM5D-RH was also at the centre of SSE’s recent demonstration day, held for the first time at the company’s London premises. On show was Nexo’s new 45 N12 stage monitor, which was used in conjunction with a PM5D. In all-digital signal chain, audio from the console was routed via EtherSound to a Nexo NXAMP4X4.

There was also a demonstration of the Yamaha StageMix iPad app for the M7CL and LS9 consoles, conducted by Yamaha’s Neil Muir and Wayne Powell (pictured here during the demo day).
