The name ‘Yamaha’ is synonymous worldwide with quality and style in the music industry. Yamaha Music Australia is a subsidiary of the famed Japanese Yamaha Corporation. From its early base as a manufacturer of reed organs and pianos, Yamaha Music has grown into the world’s most comprehensive and highly acclaimed music product manufacturer.
In addition to its highly- acclaimed pianos (and parallel reputation as a leading motorcycle manufacturer) the brand is also renowned for its range of world-class home audio products. From sophisticated multi-room audio systems to chic Smart Speakers, Yamaha brings uniquely innovative design, enhanced functionality and exceptional sound performance. Yamaha will be exhibiting at the Decor + Design show in Melbourne, 21 – 24 July. We asked them a few pertinent questions to get an idea of what visitors can expect at the show.
Why is ‘sound planning’ such an important part of interior design?
It’s often overlooked because there are no visual cues for sound, but music can play a critical role in setting the tone of a room. Great sound quality elevates the overall atmosphere of a home – whether it’s entertaining guests or simply unwinding with a favourite movie. Sound planning sets the stage to ensure that the form and acoustics of a house have all been taken into consideration to optimise the setting and home entertainment quality to its fullest potential without compromising its interior look and feel.
How does the Japanese design aesthetic filter down into Yamaha products?
As an iconic Japanese brand that has been around since 1887, Yamaha’s design roots lies in its dedicated focus on simplicity, elegance, aesthetic appreciation from every angle and the meticulous attention to detail. From the materials used, down to the rigorous testing and tuning of each product, Yamaha home audio products are developed with the goal of surpassing expectations with designs that don’t overshadow, but magnify the product’s technological capabilities. In addition, all Yamaha Sound Bars, Speakers and Sound Systems uphold strict sustainability standards and are certified Yamaha eco-products, confirming that all environmentally safe standards are prioritised in the product development process.
The Yamaha brand emphasises music education and the importance it takes in leisure. I know in Japan they also have a number of resorts that facilitate this ideal! How does Yamaha Australia also promote the holistic importance of music?
Yamaha Music Australia is constantly collaborating and working alongside artists, educators and ambassadors that share the same mind-set and passion for music in every aspect of life. As the world’s most comprehensive music company, our work starts with instilling a love of music in primary education, nurturing musicianship with the world’s largest catalogue of musical instruments, and advocating a deeper understanding and appreciation of music with a range of world-class audio products.
When investing in a sound system, what are the steps a client can take to ensure that they are buying the right solution for their needs? There is an abundance of choice these days!
There definitely are a lot of options to consider, but some of the key things to note is the surroundings of your desired space, its size and your lifestyle preferences when it comes to sound and music – whether you are the ultimate host, the musical enthusiast that requires a dedicated listening corner, or someone who uses music as part of the setting in the background. Yamaha has an unparalleled range of audio products and solutions that caters to everyone’s taste and style, whether it’s in a particular room and to provide whole-of-home convenience. No matter what you choose you’re assured of class-leading innovation, unsurpassed reliability and premium sound.
We are very excited that Yamaha will be exhibiting at Decor + Design 2016. What can trade visitors expect from you at the exhibition?
Visitors can expect a wide range of new décor Smart Audio pieces with aspects that couple time-honoured craftsmanship and hi-tech performance, bringing an amazing musical experience to all music-lovers in every shape and form. From Sound Bars to Smart Speakers, there’s something to suit any living space. Yamaha will also be featuring its latest whole-of-home technology, MusicCast, at the show and will emphasise that despite the many changes in art, style and design over the years, the love of music will always be present in our homes and in our lives.
