The new Yamaha PC series of network power amplifiers adds Dante audio network connectivity, a 20×8 input matrix, sampling rates of up to 96kHz and on-board digital signal processing (DSP) functions including crossovers, delays, parametric EQs, mutes and limiters. Each model enables system flexibility and expansion. For example, incoming analog sound can be output to a Dante network, allowing the system to be used as a 4-channel Dante input rack. Also, the 20×8 matrix function makes it possible to perform audio signal processing using the amps’ internal processor. A high-efficiency Class-D amp unit delivers low distortion with high efficiency, and the PC Series comes with power output options of 1200W (models PC412) or 600W (models PC406). The series’ DI models are for installed-sound applications and the new D models are for touring applications. The new amplifiers are compatible with Yamaha ProVisionaire Control/Touch software. Amplifier parameters and configuration settings can be set on the front panel or through the ProVisionaire Amp Editor management software.
