Yamaha today announced the new Power to Play promotion, which offers free speakers and rebates on the new DBR powered speaker line with the purchase of a musical instrument. Yamaha's most portable and versatile speakers, the DBR series include a simple interface and deliver plenty of power for a wide range of instruments and vocal applications.

To qualify for a free DBR speaker or rebate, purchases must be made from an authorized Yamaha dealer by November 30, 2014. Customers who buy the following instruments are eligible for the promotion:

The DBR series (DBR10, DBR12 and DBR15 - http://4wrd.it/DBR), features state-of-the-art DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology, ensuring superior performance and versatility, along with safe, consistent operation. The lineup also uses Yamaha's extremely accurate wide dispersion constant-directivity horn that evenly projects the DBR's deep bass, clear midrange and accurate high frequencies to the outer-most edges of a broad coverage area. The optimized 50-degree wedge angle is ideal for floor monitor use.

"Wherever your music takes you, DBR series loudspeakers deliver powerful, high-quality sound with unmatched ease of transport and quick setup," said John Schauer, product manager, Live Sound, Yamaha Corporation of America.
