Yamaha DSR Series speakers

Yamaha's new DSR active loudspeaker line includes the compact and lightweight full-range DSR112, DSR115 and DSR215, along with the DSR118W subwoofer, and promises class-leading power and digital sound processing, plus the all-new D-Contour multiband dynamic processing.

The DSR Series loudspeakers include Integral Digital Tuning, Intelligent Dynamic Control, Powerful Digital Drive and extensive DSP protection.

Integral Digital Tuning helps deliver clear, high definition sound quality via high-performance 48-bit digital signal processing and advanced acoustic technologies. Digital crossover networks use high-order FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters for linear phase response, which provides better sound quality than analog crossovers.

Intelligent Dynamic Control enhances sound quality with the D-Contour multiband dynamic processor that monitors output levels and varies the amount of boost in each frequency band, promising an ideal balance of dynamic sound with consistent clarity at all volume levels.

The speakers’ 1,300-watt Class-D amplifiers are said to get the most out of the DSR’s lightweight cabinets. Yamaha also developed the PFC (Power Factor Correction) switching mode power supply that helps the entire system achieve its full performance potential. This design allows for convection cooling, eliminating the need for fans. DSR speakers also employ high-power DSP and 24-bit discrete A/D and D/A converters that deliver superior signal-to-noise ratio and dynamic range.

Also providing extensive DSP protection, the new series offers 3-way fail-safe functions for the power supply, amplifier circuits and drivers. In addition to the speaker line’s premium, custom-designed transducers, the exterior finish offers military-grade durability.
