Yamaha recently reported that more than 1,000 units of its PM5D digital sound reinforcement console have been sold worldwide as of July 1, 2005, breaking the company’s previous sales records set by PM1D and DM2000 products. According to Commercial Audio Systems Division general manager Larry Italia, PM5D consoles were sold to the national and regional sound reinforcement, tour sound, broadcast and mobile recording, house of worship and corporate presentation markets.
“This figure represents a major milestone for both the PM5D and Yamaha’s digital mixing console line,” states Italia. “It signifies that the market has now completely accepted digital mixers as a viable platform and, given the diversity of the customer base, the PM5D is a top choice for virtually any application. When it debuted in 2004, we knew that the PM5D offered the right combination of price and integrated features that would make it attractive to customers on both the regional and national levels.”
The Yamaha PM5D Series combines the features and self-contained smaller footprint “one-box” design of the DM2000 and the operating style of the PM1D. Designed as a cost-effective means to deliver high-quality digital audio and complete recall, customers have a choice of two front-end configurations: model PM5D, with manual mic preamps based on the circuitry found in the DM2000; and PM5D-RH, with recallable mic preamps derived from the head amplifier design of the Yamaha PM5000. The PM5D can also provide a complete digital system solution through integration with other Yamaha digital products, including the DME64N, AD8HR, DM2000 and 02R96.
