Cinematic performance at professionally sensible prices.

With 800W per channel on tap (or up to 1050W per channel driving 4 ohm speakers) and professional output processing and safety controls, this unassumming Yamaha unit is actually ideally suited to applications requiring serious power, such as driving power-hungry mains floorstander speakers and passive subwoofers, such as those found in the Krix MX line.  Choosing the PX line of pro amplifiers will allow your system installer maximum flexibility in configuring and maximising the performance of your home cinema.

Intelligent Processing. Serious Power.

Since the 1976 release of the P2200, their first professional power amplifier, Yamaha has strived to achieve the highest possible levels of sound quality, power output, and reliability, whether used in sound reinforcement, studio, or home audio. The new PX series power amplifiers continue this tradition of excellence, utilizing Yamaha’s renowned digital signal processing technology and unparalleled professional audio expertise to achieve a light, durable design, capable of delivering maximum output power to the speakers while simultaneously protecting them with optimized processing. Driven by a newly-developed Class-D amplifier, the four new models that make up the PX series are suitable for a broad range of sound reinforcement, installation and Hi-Fi environments.

Powerful, Efficient Design

The Yamaha PX series amps are driven by a newly developed Class-D amplifier engine which concentrates all necessary functions into a single custom LSI chip, and 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 a painstaking component selection process make PX Series amplifiers supremely efficient, with low noise, reliable protection features, and above all, outstanding sound quality.

DSP for audio processing - Input Routing & Output Routing

Amp Mode selection allows the user to configure the system without difficulty by selecting the input and output routings. A total of 15 types of patterns can be selected. - Input routing (Dual/Parallel/Single/SUM)- Speaker System Structure (FULL+FULL/SUB+SUB/FULL+SUB/Bi-Amp/Boost Full/Boost Sub)

800W x2 into 8 ohms

The PX8 pumps 800W into each 8 ohm speaker or a stupendous 1050W into each 4 ohm speaker at the same time.

Sophisticated Signal Processing

PX series amps come with flexible and fully by-passable onboard crossover, filters, delay, limiter and 6-band parametric EQ functions as standard, allowing quick and easy system setup via the LCD display, without the need for any additional outboard gear.  All models also feature Yamaha’s intelligent D-CONTOUR multi-band dynamic processing, allowing users to achieve consistent clarity and high-quality sound for either front-of-house or monitor configurations.

Easy, Intuitive Setup

To accommodate users with varying levels of sound reinforcement experience, the PX series offers both Basic and Advanced setup modes. Basic mode allows even inexperienced users to easily configure a system to meets their needs, while 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 that can be saved to a USB thumb drive and shared with other PX amplifiers.

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– 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, including the popular CBR, Club, Installation, and VXS/VXC series, and an advanced mode that allows more detailed configuration of parameters such as input routing, input sensitivity, amp gain, and speaker impedance.

Flexible Connectivity, Durable Construction

Equipped with both XLR and TRS inputs, and binding post, SpeakON and phone outputs, 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.

Utilities for Safe and Secure Operation

PX Series amplifiers make it fast and easy to configure panel settings, monitor amplifier status, and transfer data via USB, and also feature a panel locking function to keep your settings safe.
