Yamaha to receive the 2007 Technical Grammy Award

The Recording Academy will present the 2007 Technical Grammy Award to Yamaha at a special ceremony prior to the 49th Annual Grammy telecast on Feb. 11, 2007, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Based on nominations from its chapters and voting by the NARAS board of trustees and its producers and engineers wing, the award recognizes those who have made outstanding technical contributions to the recording field.

Yamaha is being recognized for its long tradition of highly successful recording products, including digital signal processors dating back to the original REV series digital reverbs; the NS-10M nearfield studio reference monitors; and the company's succession of digital mixing consoles including the DMP7, DMC1000, ProMix01, 02R and DM2000.

Each year, the Recording Academy recognizes no more than one individual and one company with a Technical Grammy, the first of which was presented in 1994. Yamaha is the 10th company to be honored.
