Powerful design and incredible ease of use

The Yamaha EMX5 is packed with a high-efficiency, dual 630-watt, Class D amplifier, making it powerful enough for a wide variety of applications. Its all-in-one design concept ensures that the EMX5, a set of speakers, and your microphones are all you need for a fully functioning PA system. Anyone with a basic understanding of sound reinforcement will find the EMX5 easy to set up and configure. Just plug in a single power cable, connect your speakers via TS or speakON, and you're ready to go. The EMX5 fits easily on a tabletop, floor, or in an installation environment, and its robust, impact-resistant, powder-coated metal chassis can withstand years of abuse.

A jack-of-all-trades, and a master of them all

The Yamaha EMX5 accommodates just about everything. Plug in up to eight microphones, connect musical instruments, or patch in a portable MP3 player. The EMX5 is equipped with phantom power for your condenser mics, and a hi-Z input accepts your guitar directly without any external gear. A pair of aux sends is ideal for a monitoring system or external effects, a set of unbalanced RCA outputs are onboard for connecting to an external recorder, and a TRS jack outputs the mixed stereo signal. Yamaha's 1-knob Master EQ function optimizes your overall sound for speech, music, or DJ performances with a simple twist of a single control. And because the EMX5 is powered, all you need is a set of passive speakers to complete your PA system.

Built-in 3-band EQ and 1-knob compressor for tailoring your sound

Each of the Yamaha EMX5's 12 inputs features a 3-band EQ (high, mid, and low) for shaping your sound. Inputs 1-4 feature Yamaha's 1-knob compressors. With a simple twist of a control, you can achieve optimal compression for your vocals and instruments - threshold, ratio, and output gain are automatically adjusted, making it incredibly simple to use.

Add dimension with 24 SPX effects

Yamaha's SPX digital effects have been around for a long time. In fact, a lot of us here at Sweetwater still use our trusty SPX90s. The EMX5 is packed with 24 great-sounding SPX effects. Use the EMX5's reverb and delay effects to simulate the sound of different performance environments such as concert halls and small clubs. The Echo setting imbues instruments and vocals with a professional touch, making it ideal for karaoke. You also have access to modulation and tremolo effects, as well as distortion, special effects, and pitch change.

Feedback suppressor stops embarrassing howling

Nothing distracts from a performance or presentation like the unpredictable wail of unwanted feedback. With the Yamaha EMX5's feedback suppressor function, your audience won't be covering their ears in disgust. Feedback suppressor employs Yamaha's state-of-the-art digital technology to eliminate feedback. And it's easy to use. Just hit the button. Feedback will be taken down before it even starts to rear its annoying head.

Sweet!!!

Used my new mixer for the first time this weekend, and I have to say, it was exceptional. The mixer I was using was a 20 year old Yamaha, and the channels were beginning to cause problems. Decided to replace and have the old one fixed as a back-up. I am amazed at the power of this amp. At 630 watts, this mixer can handle most venues. I had the channels set at about 8:00 and 9:00, and the music easily filled the room that housed about 100 people. Additionally, I noticed that the music sounded great. I'd been having problems with the music not sounding consistent. I realize now it was the old mixer that was the problem, because customers actually remarked on how great the music sounded. Also wanted to add that the mixer is way lighter than the old mixer and with the handles and it's slimmer design, its a breeze to carry and transport. My only complaint is... why did you guys at Yamaha tilt the mixer? Now I can't sit my wireless receiver on top!!! That's just a minor complaint... I LOVE this mixer and hope to use it for many years. I'm completely happy with my purchase, would recommend this mixer without hesitation. Want to thank Paul at Sweetwater for his help with this purchase. The Sweetwater team is the absolute BEST!!! The mixer arrived exactly on time in perfect condition, and Paul was quick to followup. Great job!!!
