August 25, 2021, Shizuoka, Japan
Yamaha Corporation announces new additions to its professional audio lineup: DHR series powered loudspeakers and CHR loudspeakers.
The DHR and CHR Series are ideal solutions for anyone ready to step up their sound reinforcement game to a new level of professional quality, accuracy, and performance. Premium plywood cabinets finished in a tough polyurea coating provide durability not found on other loudspeakers in this class. Each model has been optimized to meet the demands of a variety of sound reinforcement applications, with 10" models for fixed installation and utilities, 12" models designed for use as floor monitors, and 15" versions for FOH applications, all featuring carefully selected custom transducers. The DHR Series transducers are driven by DSP-equipped class-D power amplifiers to deliver stunning sound quality and clarity. Combined with practical features adapted for their specific applications, these two series give you the flexibility to choose the ideal speaker for a wide variety of sonic environments.
Cabinet designs optimized for a range of audio environments
The 10" models are equipped with rotating HF horns and compatible with an optional UB-DXRDHR10 U-bracket for use in fixed installations and utility, while the 12" models are the first Yamaha speakers to feature a coaxial compression driver for improved clarity and smoother frequency response for floor monitoring. The largest in the lineup are the 15" models, which feature dual-angle pole sockets and rigging points for use in fixed installations or as temporary main speakers for sound reinforcement.

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the addition of these six new models will allow us greater flexibility in providing our customers with affordable solutions that are optimized for their needs, and strengthen our lineup of professional audio speaker systems by offering the high-quality sound” says Chihaya ‘Chick’ Hirai, General Manager of Yamaha’s PA Marketing and Sales Department.
The DHR Series powered loudspeakers provide versatility and premium quality with a lineup of three different models delivering up to 1,000 W Class-D power and equipped with plywood enclosures and practical features that have been optimized to deliver superb performance in a wide range of sound reinforcement environments.
