Yamaha have added new 8-channel power amps to the four existing XMV Series 4-channel models. The XMV8280 and XMV8140 are equipped with Yamaha’s newly developed YDIF digital audio format connectivity allowing for fast and easy setup with Ethernet cables. The XMV8280-D and XMV8140-D utilize Audinate’s Dante digital audio network for larger venues where long distance cabling is required. All XMV power amplifiers can operate in both high-impedance (70V/100V line) or low-impedance (4Ω/8Ω) modes simultaneously, eliminating the need for separate, dedicated amps or an external transformer. The newly developed “Double Power Mode” effectively doubles the output of selected channels in order to drive speakers of varying output power via a dip switch on the rear panel. In addition, the updated version of MTX Editor will provide users more detailed control of the XMV’s parameters via its easy-to-use interface.
