Yamaha CBR Loudspeaker Series, Which Deliver Power and Portability, Shipping This Month

Versatile Speakers Easily Adapt to Both Mobile and Install Applications with Limited Power Supply

BUENA PARK, Calif. January 12, 2015


Yamaha today announced that the passive CBR Series of portable loudspeakers will ship on January 22, 2015, the opening day of the 2015 NAMM Show, the largest musical product trade convention in North America. The CBR and the powered DBR Series will be showcased at the 2015 NAMM Show.

The CBR Series, Yamaha's newest lineup of passive loudspeakers, delivers high-quality sound with impressive power, while offering exceptional portability. The CBR10, CBR12 and CBR15 are lighter than their DBR counterparts and do not require power cables, allowing them to easily adapt to both portable and rigged applications where access to a power supply is limited.

The CBR includes the same versatile enclosure design as the DBR Series and comes equipped with one speakON jack and a 1/4" Phone jack, enabling fast, easy connectivity for personal and professional applications. While the DBR Series attains its superior audio performance from Yamaha's advanced DSP technologies, the CBR Series is tuned by precise, in-depth analysis and adjustment of an internal passive network. This results in high-definition, low distortion sound, even at high output levels when used in combination with an external power amplifier like the Yamaha P-S Series power amplifier or EMX Series powered mixer. Additionally, the protection circuit limits excessive input to the HF driver to reduce the risk of the damage. Combined with a highly responsive LF unit, the CBR Series remains reliable even when pushed to extreme limits.

"The CBR Series models are an impressive addition to our passive speaker lineup, offering sound solutions for a wider range of customers who are seeking high-powered, clearly defined sound in a portable, flexible design," said Nithin Cherian, marketing manager, Live Sound, Yamaha Corporation of America.

Pricing and Availability
The CBR Series (MSRP: $379 to $529) will ship January 22, 2015.
