Serious Live Sound

The Yamaha EMX5016CF delivers the convenience of an integrated powered mixer with input capacity, flexible features, and solid sound that critical live applications demand. It is remarkably compact and portable for a live sound system with this much capability. And thanks to leading Yamaha digital technology, the EMX5016CF also includes a number of innovations that make it easier than ever to achieve top-class sound in just about any venue. An impressive power output of 500 watts per channel means it can handle fairly large audiences, indoors or out. The EMX5016CF goes considerably beyond the standard definition of "powered mixer," entering the realm of serious sound reinforcement.

Adapts to Varied Source Requirements

The Yamaha EMX5016CF has a total of 16 input channels -- eight for monaural microphone or line input plus four stereo pairs. The stereo channel pairs can function either as monaural microphone inputs or stereo line inputs. This system gives you extra microphone inputs if your sources are mostly microphones, or if you need to handle more stereo sources, the EMX5016CF will comfortably handle four pairs in addition to eight mono mic or line inputs.

Advanced Channel EQ

The Yamaha EMX5016CF features 3-band EQ on all input channels, but extra versatility is provided on the eight mono channels with mid-frequency sweep controls. The mid EQ center frequency can be continuously swept from 250 Hz through 5 kHz so you can precisely pinpoint frequencies in the critical midrange.

Ample I/O

All you need to create a powerful, high-performance live sound system is the Yamaha EMX5016CF, a pair of speakers or two, and your sources. But it does feature a range of inputs and outputs that allow it to be expanded with external gear or integrated into larger systems. Insert patch points on the mono input channels, for example, let you add outboard signal processing to individual input channels. And although you have all the monitor power and effects you're likely to need built in, external AUX and EFFECT sends allow you to route the mixer's signals to external signal processing and/or monitor systems as required. Stereo out, stereo sub-out, and record outputs are also provided.

One-Knob Compression On Mono Channels

The Yamaha EMX5016CF features compressors on all monaural microphone/line channels that can help to make vocals ride the mix better, give you that smooth compressed guitar sound, deliver more punchy bass, and generally refine your mixes in a multitude of ways. These unique one-knob compressors are surprisingly simple to use. There are no multiple attack, threshold, makeup gain, and other controls -- just set the COMP control to the amount of compression you need.

9-band Digital Graphic EQ with Presets & Memory

The advanced digital 9-band stereo graphic equalizer built in to the Yamaha EMX5016CF goes way beyond conventional analog types with a refined control interface, instant-recall presets, and user memory locations. It also works with the console's innovative Frequency Response Correction system (see below) for unprecedented response-shaping control. Of course you can manually adjust each band as required from scratch, but you can also use one of the presets -- VOCAL, DANCE, or SPEECH -- as a starting point and edit from there. You also have three user memories into which you can store your own EQ curves for instant recall whenever needed.

FRC (Frequency Response Correction) System

Setting a live sound system's output equalizer to optimally match room response is normally a complicated process requiring noise generators, calibrated microphones, real-time analyzers, and a great deal of time and experience. The Yamaha EMX5016CF handles the entire process automatically, using either pink noise or a recorded music source you supply. To precisely match the system's response to the room you're in all you need to do is set up a microphone in an appropriate location, connect it to channel 1, and press the MEASURE/CORRECT once to make the measurement, and then again to automatically set the graphic equalizer for optimized response. The EQ setting can then be stored in one of the user memories for later recall if needed.

Automatic Feedback Suppression

Although the graphic equalizer can be used for feedback control, the Yamaha EMX5016CF provides a Feedback Suppressor system that is dedicated to the job. The Feedback Suppressor works by detecting feedback frequencies on the stereo bus and applying precise notch filters to eliminate the feedback. The Feedback Suppressor has an automatic mode that automatically keeps track of and attenuates feedback frequencies for you, and a sensitive manual mode that lets you pinpoint and attenuate feedback points one by one.

Multi-band "Maximizer"

The Yamaha EMX5016CF's "Maximizer" is an advanced 3-band compressor that can be applied to the stereo bus for a more punchy "up-front" overall sound. Simply press the MAXIMIZE switch to instantly give the mix more presence and impact without sacrificing musical subtlety.

Dual Yamaha SPX Effect Processors

The Yamaha EMX5016CF includes not one but two top-performance Yamaha SPX digital effect processors built in. You might only need ambience effects such as reverb and delay for live sound applications -- and theEMX5016CF includes some of the finest reverb and delay effects available -- but if you need other effects as well they're right at your fingertips, and you can use two different effects simultaneously. Each effect processor offers a selection of 16 top-quality effects including reverb, echo, chorus, flanger, phaser, and even distortion, with editable parameters that allow you to customize each effect.

"Great Amp, but"
Overall: This amp is great, I upgraded from Behringer gear to Yamaha because of its reliability, gutsy loud amp use this in a 5 piece band and put through vocals, my Roland TD15k drums and miked guitars, plenty of grunt for small to medium sized venues. Only wish Yamaha would have put amp out and in plugs to EQ the full mix, bummer. Other than that, if your looking for this sort of amp for your band, go for it you wont be disappointed.

"very nice 'working mans' board"
Feature: the reverb is not bad, but not near like an external lexicon or some other unit. Ease of Use: The manual is very clear. The on board eq is one of the only issues with this board. It is not wide enough, and one little bump on the button makes a big difference. I am going to try to run an external eq
