Yamaha PX5 800W 2-channel Power Amplifier
The versatile Yamaha PX5 series power amplifier combines intelligent processing with high output power. Yamaha’s PX series meets the requirements of a vast range of sound reinforcement environments.
Intelligent Processing. Serious Power.
Since the 1976 release of the P2200, Yamaha’s first professional power amplifier, Yamaha has strived to achieve the highest possible levels of sound quality, power output, and reliability in sound reinforcement, studio, and installed applications. The new PX5, along with the PX series power amplifiers continue this tradition of excellence. These amps utilise Yamaha’s renowned digital signal processing technology and unparalleled professional audio expertise.
Hence, this amp is capable of delivering the maximum output power to the speakers while protecting them with optimized processing. Furthermore, driven by a newly-developed Class-D amplifier the four new models that make up the PX5 and PX series are suitable for a broad range of sound reinforcement and installation environments.
Powerful, Efficient Design ~ PX5
The PX5 model is driven by a newly developed Class-D amplifier engine. It concentrates all the necessary functions into a single custom LSI chip. It uses PLL technology to control transfer characteristics in real-time, achieving impressive sound quality and power.
This new single-chip architecture offers higher output and improved performance in a more lightweight, yet reliable design. A combination of cutting-edge technology and an exhaustive component selection process make the PX5 and PX Series amplifiers supremely efficient amplifiers with low noise, reliable protection features, and above all, outstanding sound quality.
Sophisticated Signal Processing
The PX5 and additional PX series models come with flexible onboard PEQ, crossover, filters, delay, and limiter functions. This allows quick and easy system setup via the LCD display, without the need for any additional outboard gear.
Yamaha’s intelligent D-CONTOUR multi-band dynamic processing allows users to achieve consistent clarity and high-quality sound at any output level. Additionally, tailor the frequency response of each connected speaker for either front-of-house or monitor configurations.
PX5’s Easy, Intuitive Setup
To accommodate users with varying levels of experience, the PX5 and PX series offer both Basic and Advanced setup modes. Basic mode allows even inexperienced users to easily configure a system that meets their needs. Advanced mode offers experienced users more precise control over every aspect of their sound.
All models feature eight programmable presets for instant recall and reduced setup time. All that can be saved to a USB thumb drive and shared with other PX amplifiers.
With a lineup comprising four new models – 1,200 W x 2 PX10, 1050 W x 2 PX8, 800 W x 2 PX5, and 500 W x 2 PX5 – the PX series offers a versatile range of different power output capabilities suitable for a wide variety of sound reinforcement applications.
The PX5 also comes equipped with a Power Boost Mode that combines the power output from two channels into one. This achieves significantly higher single-channel power levels to drive high power handling speakers when needed (note that the number of channels available is halved in this case).
Flexible Connectivity, Durable Construction
Equipped with both XLR and TRS inputs, and binding post, SpeakON and phone outputs, PX5 and other PX Series amplifiers offer the flexibility needed for a variety of setups and environments, and the durability to stand up to extended road-use thanks to the sturdy chassis and carrying handle design.
Smart Configuration Wizard
The Config Wizard allows users to save even more time during system setup by assigning optimized speaker settings that match your system configuration. For example, simply select the appropriate filter and crossover for each speaker, and Config Wizard will do the rest.
Config Wizard also features presets specifically tuned for each model in Yamaha’s extensive lineup of passive speakers. This includes the popular CBR, Club, Installation, and VXS/VXC series. Advanced mode allows a more detailed configuration of parameters such as input routing, input sensitivity, amp gain, and speaker impedance.
Utilities for Safe and Secure Operation
PX5 and PX Series amplifiers make it fast and easy to configure panel settings, monitor amplifier status, and transfer data via USB. Also, they feature a panel locking function to keep your settings safe. Users can even export information such as internal devices and log data to USB for rapid troubleshooting should difficulties arise.
