Yamaha has expanded its lineup of mini-YGDAI format cards with the introduction of MY16-ES64 EtherSound Interface card and MY16-EX expansion card.
EtherSound is the digital audio and control transfer protocol of choice for many modern live sound applications. Now with a single Yamaha MY16-ES64 card you can add 16channels of bidirectional EtherSound connectivity to a range of Yamaha professional audio devices that accept mini-YGDAI expansion cards. Simply add one, two or three MY16-EX expansion cards to the core MY16-ES64 card to increase the EtherSound channel capacity to 32, 48 or 64 channels.
As EtherSound is bidirectional, MY16-ES64 and MY16-EX cards work on both ends of the systems. You could, for example, equip your Yamaha digital mixer with an MY16-ES64 card and up to 3 MY16-EX cards to provide the required EtherSound input and output capability, and install complementary MY16-ES64 card and MY16-EX cards into on-stage Yamaha TXn-series power amplifier.
For input you could use Yamaha AD8HR remotely-controllable head amplifiers connected via a Yamaha NAI48-ES EtherSound Network Audio Interface. This Yamaha stage box solution can be achieved by using MY16-ES64 and MY16-EX cards, delivering high quality sound while keeping cabling requirements to a minimum.
