At the recent Musikmesse convention in Frankfurt, Germany, Yamaha announced the new PM5D Series live performance digital mixing console, a “mid-priced” board that reportedly combines the features and self-contained design of the DM2000 with the operating style of the PM1D.

“The PM5D has been engineered for those applications that require high quality digital audio and complete recall, but where budgetary limitations may be a consideration,” states Larry Italia, general manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio.

Featuring a ‘one box’ design—including the mix engine—the PM5D offers 64 input channels (48 mono + 4 Stereo analog inputs, 4 internal stereo returns) of dynamic 96 kHz audio with 32-bit internal processing. All onboard A/D and D/A conversions make use of true 24-bit/96kHz converters. Outputs include 24 mix, 2 stereo (ST A and B or L-C-R), 8 matrix, 8 Mute groups and 8 DCAs (Digitally Controlled Amplifiers). The PM5D functions without the use of a meter bridge.

Engineers can choose from two front-end configurations: Model PM5D includes 48 XLR analog mono inputs with manual mic preamps based on the circuitry found in the Yamaha DM2000, each with balanced TRS insert I/Os and with an additional 4 stereo line level inputs.

Model PM5D-RH includes 48 XLR analog mono inputs with recallable mic preamps, derived from the head amplifier design of the Yamaha PM5000, with 4 stereo inputs that will accept mic level signal.

The PM5D is targeted for June 2004 delivery. For more information, please visit www.yamaha.com/proaudio.
