High Power Touring Amp with DSP and Networking, A Brilliant Fusion of Leading Yamaha Power, DSP and Network Technologies.
For more than 30 years Yamaha has been delivering top-quality for professional audio applications. The recent Yamaha Tn series amplifiers achieved new heights in power, efficiency, sonic quality and low-impedance drive capability. And now the Yamaha TXn series amplifiers bring together several industry-leading Yamaha technologies for the ultimate in power, processing, and networking performance.The Yamaha TXn Series features three new high-power amplifiers that not only deliver extraordinary efficiency and stunning sound quality reliably into 2-ohm loads, but also offer sophisticated onboard DSP with a front-panel user interface that minimizes or eliminates the need for external equalizers, delays, and speaker processors. All Yamaha TXn models feature both analog and direct digital inputs, with automatic failsafe redundancy switching between digital and analog input. The input configuration can be changed as required using optional plug-in Yamaha mini-YGDAI interface cards. With the appropriate I/O cards these advanced amplifiers are fully compatible with CobraNet or EtherSound audio networks as well as a variety of digital audio formats. The built-in Ethernet port can be connected to a computer running Yamaha's amplifier control software for comprehensive remote control and monitoring of individual amplifiers or groups.
- High power for tour applications.
- Stable 2-ohm drive capability for line array speaker systems.
- Yamaha DSP technology provides extensive monitoring, control, input/speaker processing, and protection functions built in.
- MY card slot makes it easy to match the amplifier’s I/O configuration to the system –– analog or digital.
- The analog and digital inputs can be used independently, or signals can be applied to both and mixed or switched automatically for redundancy.
- Advanced remote monitoring, control, and system management capabilities via Yamaha's dedicated software.
- Legendary Yamaha quality control for consistently superior sonic quality and reliability.
- Dual mono configuration with independent power supplies for each channel.
- Original Yamaha EEEngine amp drive technology achieves efficiency that matches class D amplifiers.
- Exhaustive vibration-reduction measures have resulted in unprecedented sound quality.
- A durable exterior, large cooling fans and fan guards, easily replaceable filters, and other reliability features deliver dependability even under demanding tour conditions.
- A variety of I/O terminals, removable handles, and other features for maximum installation and handling versatility.
Not just an amplifier and a speaker processor put into one
The DSP enabled TXn series provides many more benefits than simply saving precious rack space or eliminating cabling.
- Rental companies can simplify warehouse inventory – The TXn series amplifier are multi-functional amplifiers that can be used to drive various speaker systems.
- Truly versatile: Not only is the TXn flexible in its I/O formats, but voltage gain/ sensitivity can be adjusted in 0.1dB steps. The TXn can be configured to use with any kind of system.
- TX5n can accept multiple digital formats. Staying digital longer with the TX5n allows for better S/N structure. Cabling is also lighter with digital.
- Precise control and monitoring of your amplifiers: Detailed control and monitoring parameters unimaginable with conventional amplifiers are now available from a remote location.
- Failsafe security: Combination of analog inputs and card slot inputs provides failsafe signal redundancy. The ultra low latency AES/EBU card's "THRU" output is designed to send signal even in case of power failure on the amplifier.
Digital signal processing is an area in which Yamaha quality is legend. The Yamaha TX5n incorporates a sophisticated 24-bit ADDA 96-kHz DSP engine that affords an extraordinary range of control and processing capabilities. In addition to basic amplifier control and status monitoring, there is enough DSP power built in to provide extensive speaker processing capabilities that will make external processors unnecessary in most applications. The Yamaha TX5n provides separate input and output processing. The onboard DSP parameters and functions can be accessed directly through the LCD and button interface provided on the front panel of the amplifier, or via Yamaha's amplifier control software running on a computer connected via Ethernet.
Flexible Input Configuration
The Yamaha TX5n amplifier features a Yamaha mini-YGDAI standard card slot that comes fitted with an AES/EBU I/O card for digital input and throughput. The amplifier's balanced analog inputs and throughputs are permanently installed on the rear panel. The analog and digital inputs can be used independently, or signals can be applied to both and mixed or switched automatically for emergency announcements, for example. The original AES/EBU I/O card can be replaced with compatible Yamaha mini-YGDAI cards that provide other digital or analog input/output formats, or with network cards that allow full compatibility with CobraNet or EtherSound audio networks.
Intuitive, plug and play amp management software
Amp Editor is a dedicated software application for TXn amplifiers that makes amplifier management easy. Remotely control and monitor Yamaha TXn amplifiers simply by connecting your amplifiers to an Ethernet port on a computer via a standard high-speed Ethernet switch. Connection to the Amp Editor network requires no special drivers so that your system is up and running in no time. All Yamaha TXn amplifier functions and DSP parameters can be controlled using Amp Editor.
Using Amp Editor will give users much more real time information about the conditions of the amplifiers than previously possible. The software can, for example, warn you when a parameter exceeds a predefined voltage, wattage, or impedance (upper/lower) value. By monitoring these parameters, you are also notified instantly if a problem is detected in the input or output signal chain, for example a blown speaker driver on an amplifier channel. Amp Editor will keep logs of these warnings into a file so it's easy to pinpoint and troubleshoot problems.
