June 2 2014, 06:00
The compact MA2030 and PA2030 power amplifiers from Yamaha were designed for small installations. Both models support low-impedance (30W x 2ch, 3Ω/4Ω selectable) as well as high impedance (60W x 1ch, 70V/100V selectable) speaker systems, with an interface that has been designed for easy everyday use. Setup is quick and easy, requiring no computers or complex procedures, and no special skill or experience is needed for day-to-day operation.

The MA2030 includes three stereo line inputs and two microphone inputs with input mixing capability, plus a range of DSP functions (ducker, feedback suppressor, and automatic leveler) that facilitate BGM and microphone use in a wide range of applications. The PA2030, with two types of stereo line inputs, can be used alone or in combination with the MA2030 to drive a larger number of speakers while allowing the establishment of extra service zones with volume zoning if required.

The currently available DCP1V4S wall-mount control panel can be connected to the MA2030 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 MA2030 and/or PA2030.

According to Chihaya “Chick” Hirai, Yamaha’s PA department manager, “the MA2030 and PA2030 are also capable of fully realizing the expressive, natural sound potential of Yamaha VXC and VXS series speakers, and will be pivotal in creating a wide variety of sound installations optimized to our customers’ needs.”
