ISE 2017 is the first major European trade show where Yamaha will be exhibiting the newly updated MA2030a and PA2030a compact power amplifiers. With extra functionality, the new models are now optimised further for commercial installations.
Yamaha says that the compact, rugged MA2030a and PA2030a power amplifiers are ideal for smaller projects, both supporting low impedance and high impedance speaker systems, with an interface that has been carefully designed for easy everyday use. Set up is quick and easy, requiring no computers or complex procedures, and no special skill or experience is needed for day to day operation, the company claims.
The new update has added an 8 ohm option to the existing low-impedance (30W x 2ch, 3 ohm/4 ohm selectable) output, plus high-pass and low-pass filters which make it easier to incorporate subwoofers for enhanced audio quality. EQ optimised for Yamaha VXS10S/ST subwoofers is also included.
Featuring two types of stereo line inputs, the PA2030a can be used alone or in combination with the MA2030a to drive a larger number of speakers while allowing the establishment of extra service zones with volume zoning if required.
The DCP1V4S wall-mount control panel can be connected to the MA2030a for convenient remote output volume and microphone on/off switching control. There’s also an optional, dedicated RKH1 rack mount kit that allows convenient rack mounting of the MA2030a and/or PA2030a
