Comments about Yamaha dxr10:
While the vast majority of current reviews seem to be for DJ applications, my perspective is as a performing instrumentalist and using a single DXR10 as an acoustic guitar amp.
I found the DXR10 after researching the new powered speaker technology. The similarly spec-ed QSC K10's are popular among some studio electric guitarists. I play acoustic jazz and fingerstyle on steel and nylon string guitars. Most of the solutions out there are too tonally harsh for acoustic, and the most natural systems are not terribly small or mobile.
I decided on the DXR10 because it has excellent sound quality for acoustic instruments, self powered with huge head room for dynamics and raw power, incredibly portable at just over 30lbs, and can be configured for single speaker, dual speakers, speakers and sub-woofer, or as a floor monitor.
Quality acoustic amplification needs a lot more dynamics that even many electric guitars, and the head room of the DXR10's delivers with no perceptible lag. The relative quality is almost identical to the K10's but IMHO the DXR10 have a slightly smoother and more natural acoustic sound - the street prices I found easily beat the K10's. The DXR10's are also incredibly durable and the internal processing protects the speakers with a limiting algorithm.
What is the catch? For those of us who like the sweet sound of analog amplifiers and wooden old-school speaker cabinets, digital class-D amplification and a plastic cabinet can sound slightly edgy and "honky" (sort of a plastic horn artifact to the sound). But as I said, this is IMO "slight", and comparing carrying a 32lb excellent sounding powered speaker vs 100lbs of analog speaker and amplifier to a gig - there is a substantive advantage here.
The DXR10 is a great powered speaker for acoustic (and electric) guitarists looking for near studio quality amplification. I would hope that Yamaha's next version addresses the slight digital edginess and mid-range "honkiness" (for lack of a better term) so that they more closely resemble Yamaha's analog powered speakers.
