Yamaha EMX5000-20 Powered Mixing Desk
is a great piece of kit - You get loads of channels and a fantastic
internal amp. As this desk also comes with two internal effects
units and and small graphic EQ, set up could not be easier!
Great Kit from All The kit!
Essentially integrated PA systems, both units provide flexible audio mixing and
patching options, 9-band graphic EQ, dual integrated 500-watt amplifiers, and
unprecedented dual on-board 32-bit digital effects processors. Compact designs
eliminate the need for additional outboard gear, thereby reducing setup times.

mixers contain dual onboard 32-bit digital signal processing systems, each
offering a selection of 16 programs, based on Yamaha's acclaimed SPX Series
effects processors. The effects sends feed the internal effects processors and
can also be used with external devices (which then return signals back to one of
the two stereo sub inputs). A flexible 9-band graphic EQ on the stereo output
provides feedback control and signal shaping. "The Yamaha EMX5000 Series offers
the routing, patching flexibility, power and signal processing you'd expect from
a small P.A. system," states Wayne Hrabak, marketing manager, Professional
Audio. "Users can now 'just add speakers.'"
show demands serious input capacity and power, the 12-channel EMX5000-12 or the
20-channel EMX5000-20 will probably do the job with performance to spare. Both
feature a 500-watt per channel multi-mode stereo power section that will fill
even fairly large venues with outstanding sound. And although they're integrated
powered mixers designed with convenience and portability in mind, both models
deliver features and performance that will satisfy even the most discerning
performers and sound engineers.
Why a Powered Mixer
busy performing musician or club operator, a high-quality powered mixer with the
right features and professional performance is the obvious choice for several
In one convenient unit you
have a mixer to combine and balance your microphone and instrument sources,
effects to add ambience to your sound, and power amplification to drive house
speakers and in some models even monitor speakers as well. Why bother with the
fuss and frustration of separate components when you can have it all in one.
Simple Setup and Operation
Setting up a system with separate
mixer, effect units, and power amplifier means lots of cables and the need for
careful level matching between components if you want optimum performance. All
of this takes time and adds up to extra work - not to mention the potential for
misplaced or faulty cables and a plethora of other "technical problems." When
you're rushing to set up for a gig, you want things to go as quickly and as
smoothly as possible.
Pick it up, carry
it to where you're going to use it, and put it down. Compare that to
transporting, connecting, and adjusting at least 3 separate units. There's
simply no contest: a well-designed, smoothly integrated powered mixer is
smaller, lighter, and actually more durable than a comparable component system.
Why a Yamaha Powered Mixer
Now that we've determined that you
need a powered mixer, why should you choose a Yamaha Start with a solid
reputation for professional quality based on more than 25 years experience in
the field. And don't forget that Yamaha also makes some of the world's finest
acoustic pianos, stringed instruments, wind instruments, drums, and electronic
instruments as well as industry-standard sound reinforcement gear. In short, the
Yamaha name is synonymous with leading-edge technology that also embodies a
unique sensitivity to the artistic needs of the musicians and performers who use
it. But since we're talking about powered mixers, here are a few more specific
Superior Sonic Quality
In addition to no-compromise
circuit design and parts selection, here's an area in which Yamaha's musical
sensitivity really makes a difference. The technology is important, but the real
key to Yamaha sonic quality is in listening. Our engineers, sound specialists
and instrument designers listen carefully to each product at every possible
design stage, making changes and refinements that may not appear in the
specifications, but that make an audible difference to the final sound.
A Power Profile for Every Application
The Yamaha EMX Series
Powered Mixers deliver plenty of professional-quality power in a range of
configurations designed to suit just about any application. From the 200-watt
mono model right up to the 500-watt-per-channel multi-mode stereo model there's
an EMX Powered mixer that offers the perfect balance of power and features for
your solo act, band, or venue.
Serious Reliability and
We're not exaggerating when we say that Yamaha quality control is
among the strictest in the business. In addition to ISO-standard manufacturing
processes, we carry out an almost unbelievable battery of reliability and safety
tests to ensure that every product surpasses all of the world's most stringent
safety standards: UL, CSA, SEMKO, CE...you name it, we've passed it. To give you
an idea of how far we go to ensure quality, here's a short list of some of the
conditions every Yamaha product must meet.

The EMX Powered mixers may be
designed for convenient, easy operation, but that doesn't mean that basic
quality and performance are compromised in any way. In fact, they inherit
technology from the acclaimed Yamaha PM3500 and PM4000 sound reinforcement
mixing consoles - staples in the professional reinforcement field worldwide.
Yamaha expertise and technological innovation is even at work in the details
that deliver subtle but vital improvements in the overall sound: superior RF
(Radio Frequency) rejection and exceptionally clean, transparent head amplifiers
are just 2 examples.
The Power Amplifier
High power alone is
simply not enough. At any power level the amplifier's output must remain an
accurate, uncolored image of the original input signal. That demands much more
technological finesse than simply building a bigger amp. In addition to totally
clean, natural power, the EMX power amplifiers feature Yamaha's unique EEEngine
technology for extremely efficient operation with significantly reduced AC power
consumption and heat generation - factors that contribute to the lineup's light
weight and compact dimensions as well.
is no newcomer to the field of digital signal processing. Our professional
outboard effect units and the effects built into our renowned digital mixing
consoles set the standards for the industry. The EMX Series powered mixers
benefit from the same cutting-edge technology. The EMX68S, EMX88S, and EMX5000
models, in particular, feature SPX digital effect technology with 24-bit AD/DA
conversion and 32-bit internal processing. The EMX effects are more than mere
"extras." They are professional-quality effects that can contribute to your
sound in many important ways.
Rack Mounting and Efficient Forced-air
With the exception of the largest model in the lineup - the
20-channel EMX5000-20 - all models can be rack-mounted using an optional
rack-mounting kit* for optimum integration with any system or installation. In
addition to the mixers' physical configuration, this is made possible by a
highly efficient fan cooling system that ensures reliable, stable operation
under just about any environmental conditions.
Another feature that illustrates Yamaha's sensitivity to the needs
of the working musician is the Stand-by switch included on all stereo models:
when you're done with a set simply engage the stand-by mode to mute all mono.
channels while leaving the 2-track inputs (and stereo channels on the console
types) active for BGM playback while you're off stage.
Power Amp Mode
All models except for the single-amp EMX62M feature power amp
mode selector switches so you can configure the amp channels to suit a range of
applications. The EMX5000 models, for example, offer 4 choices: Main (L) + main
(R) to drive stereo house speakers, Mono + AUX to drive a mono house speaker
system plus a mono monitor system, AUX1 + AUX2 to drive a monitor system while
an outboard power amplifier drives the house, and Mono Bridge to deliver a
whopping 1000 watts to a subwoofer. The LPF filter provided on the EMX5000 -
12/20 outputs is also an ideal feature for subwoofer drive.
Yamaha Club Series speakers are fine performers in
their own right, but with Yamaha Speaker Processing you get extra-smooth highs
and enhanced low frequency output.
