The Yamaha XMV Series multi-channel power amplifiers combine Class-D efficiency with features designed specifically to benefit commercial installation sound systems. The Series is comprised of 8 different models with varying output power capabilities and flexible in/out connectivity to accommodate a wide range of installation environments.

Yamaha XMV8280 Features:

  • High impedance and low impedance...or both: Installed sound applications often demand both high and low impedance connectivity in the samevenue, requiring separate, dedicated amplifiers or an external transformer. XMVpower amplifiers, however, can operate in both high-impedance (70V/100V line)or low-impedance (4 Ohm/8 Ohm) modes simultaneously, eliminating the need for additional equipment, as well as streamlining the installation process. XMV power amplifiers also enable both 70V and 100V operation for every pair of channels by simply selecting the preferred mode using the dipswitches on the rear panel. High impedance operation often requires the use of two combined channels in bridge mode, but with XMV amplifiers, 70V or 100Vmode can be assigned to every pair of channels without affecting the number of available output channels.
  • New "Double Power Mode": The Double Power Mode function effectively doubles the output power of selected channels in order to drive speakers with higher output power. This means that speakers with varying output capacities can be powered simultaneously by the same amplifier, adding flexibility to system design and configuration.
    • *The number of channels that can be used will be reduced to half.
  • Selectable input formats for a wider range of applications: XMV amplifiers come equipped with either theYDIF digital audio format, or Audinate's digital audio network Dante. YDIF allows easy setup with the use of Ethernet cables while Dante models can beused for larger venues where long distant cabling is required.
  • A perfect match for the MTX Series: When XMV power amplifiers are used in systems with MTX series processors, settings such asthe mute on/off or attenuator changes can be set via computer using the MTX Editor software application. YDIF and Dante ports make system configuration simple and fast with instant connectivity and flexible parameter control.
  • Best installation amp ever?: XMV amplifiers feature an innovative patent-pending circuit that improves the already highly efficient Class D circuit topology, bringing the efficiency level of the amplifier's output stage up to over 90%. This is achieved by automatically switching the circuit to match the corresponding output voltage. In high-impedance connections, both 70V and 100V operation can be achieved since the circuit is already capable of operating in high voltages. However, using the same circuit in low impedance operation can mean excessive energy loss, so by automatically switching to alower voltage drive, efficiency is improved significantly without sacrificing crucial aspects of the amp's performance such as keeping the distortion levels to a minimum.

    XMV power amplifiers alsofeature a new switching power supply equipped with Power Factor Correction,which ensures harmonic control and decreases the amount of current draw dramatically, yet still maintains the same output power. This makes circuit breakers less prone to shutting down, as well as eliminating the need for thicker, heavier cables or a larger, more powerful system.
  • Protection features for more reliable operation:Automatic protection functions are an essential part of the XMV Series' design, ensuring peak performance and reliable operation in less than ideal situations. Low load impedance, overcurrent, and overheating can all damage vital amplifier components and threaten their ability to function effectively. To combat these hazards, XMV Series power amps feature powerful, intelligent protection functions that can deliver the assurance of long product life and consistent performance.
