By PSW Staff • August 31, 2018 Yamaha's new line of powered DZR/DXS-XLF loudspeakers and subwoofers Yamaha announces that the company has begun shipment of the new lines of powered (DZR/DXS-XLF) and passive (CZR/CXS-XLF) loudspeakers and subwoofers, offering enhanced performance and professional sound quality. The DZR line of powered loudspeakers, along with the DXS-XLF powered subwoofers, use the latest DSP in all powered models at 96kHz. This high speed, combined with the newly developed Advanced FIR-X tuning technology, minimizes latency and phase distortion. The CZR series of passive loudspeakers are ideal for those installations where power amplifiers are used remotely. Adding their companion CXS-XLF subwoofers will extend a sound system’s bottom end down to 29Hz for more bass-heavy applications. When paired with Yamaha PX Series amplifiers or other compatible processors, the loudspeakers take full advantage of dedicated processor tuning settings to produce DZR-quality sound. Every model in the new powered and passive loudspeaker lines is housed in a lightweight, durable, 15mm-thick plywood cabinet, coated with military-grade polyurea to withstand the rigors of travel, handling and weather. The cabinets are equipped with plenty of flypoints, suitable for standard eyebolts and specialized U-brackets for convenient flying and hanging installation. “Our long experience with acoustics, electronics and state of the art networking has produced a speaker lineup only Yamaha could develop,” says John Schauer, senior technical specialist, Yamaha Pro Audio. “These new speakers sound incredibly natural and clean, even at very high output levels.” This winter, the DZR and DXS series with Dante integration will be shipping. These models incorporate smart system integration with Yamaha consoles and other Dante devices via a 2in/2out I/O configuration. Using the Analog I/O and the Dante break-IN and break-OUT capabilities inside these speakers makes flexible routing and system configuration options easy to set up. The new DZR/DXS-XLF and CZR/CXS-XLF lineup of loudspeakers and subwoofers are currently shipping. The Dante-integrated models will begin shipment in winter 2018.
