BUENA PARK, Calif.—October 1, 2012 marks the 125th anniversary year of Yamaha Corporation, one of the world's leading musical instrument and professional audio companies, based in Japan, commencing operations in 1887. Yamaha Corporation and its other group companies will begin a year of commemoration of this significant anniversary. For the occasion the Company has adopted a new commemorative logo mark and slogan, “125 Years of Passion and Performance”.
This year is special for Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, who is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the company’s entrance into the digital console market with the launch 25 years ago of the DMP7, the first of many digital consoles manufactured by Yamaha Corporation Japan. Great strides have been made over the past 25 years with the manufacture of DMC1000, ProMix 01, DM2000, 02R, 02R96, 01V and 01V96 and 01V96i, The strong acceptance for these earlier models opened doors for mid-size recording, post and broadcast facilities as well as for the installation market, most notably the house of worship market, and sound companies to take advantage of more affordable, digital console solutions. Thirteen years ago marked the launch of the company’s flagship PM1D digital console, soon followed by the PM5D console. Familiarity and reliability have been the constant thread throughout all digital products manufactured by Yamaha, reinforcing a strong customer commitment to the future line of M7CL, M7CL-48ES, LS9, DM2000VCM and 02R96VCM consoles.
“It is fitting that as we celebrate the 125th anniversary of our parent company, Yamaha Corporation Japan and the 25th anniversary of digital console manufacture, we also celebrate the enormous acceptance of our new Yamaha CL Digital Console product line launched in March,” states Larry Italia, Vice President and General Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc.
“The 125th anniversary slogan, “125 Years of Passion and Performance”, speaks volumes about dedication to our customers,” says Italia. “Our employees are quite passionate in providing the highest quality service and support, and we will continue to provide exceptional digital audio products at the highest level of performance.” For more information, visit www.yamahaca.com.
