The announcement coincides with the first shipments of the DSR series within Europe and illustrates the faith the company has in the enclosures, given that they will be used in tough live and installation applications.
"The five-year warranty is often used on our commercial audio products," said Peter Peck, marketing manager at Yamaha Music Europe (UK), "but this is the first time we have offered this extra peace of mind for an MI and audio product. We have done intensive testing to ensure maximum product reliability and we know that this extended warranty will be really appreciated by our professional users."
The DSR series speakers consist of a 12-inch, 15-inch, dual 15-inch and 18-inch subwoofer. Using 48-bit internal digital processing these PA speakers are enhanced by the D-Contour system to ensure smooth sonic characteristics throughout the volume curve and FIR filtering for complete phase accuracy. The new Class D amplifiers deliver up to 1,300 Watts, but the speakers can deliver a class-leading 138dB SPL.
