Product Description

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.

Versatile 16-Input Configuration Adapts to Varied Source Requirements
The 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
3-band EQ is available 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 for Expansion and Integration
All you need to create a powerful, high-performance live sound system is the 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 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
This advanced digital 9-band stereo graphic equalizer 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 (Click to enlarge) generators, calibrated microphones, real-time analyzers, and a great deal of time and experience. The 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 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 EMX5016CF "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 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 the EMX5016CF 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.

Dual AUX Sends
AUX 1 and AUX 2 send controls with pre/post fader switching adjust the level of the channel signal sent to the auxiliary buses for monitoring or external effects send. The availability of two AUX sends provides considerable flexibility for effect and monitor routing. You could, for example, use the channel EFFECT controls to control send level to the internal SPX effect processor while using AUX 2 to feed an external effects unit, and AUX 1 to feed a stage monitor system.

Own three want more.

Your general opinion of this product.

I use these for my band or sound for various school shows including marching band front lines or indoor shows where the schools PA are not to my liking.

My first mixer of this line has never given me any problem.I also rent these out for church and/or private functions with zero problems.

Very easy to use.Since the mixer already has FX in it I normally don't need to add more.What is in the mixer is more than enough for producing a high quality sound,

Love the availability to have different EQ's preset.My only change would be to have XLR main outs to use with powered speakers.

Sound is clean and clear.Tone is subject to personal preference and I have not been disappointed.

Great Mixer!

Power vs weight is awesome. FRC and auto feedback suppression are good features.

Very easy to use and interface with mics, instruments and effects. And lightweight!

The Yamaha sound, coupled with the light weight is why I bought this unit. I had the 5000-20 before this one but no longer needed all of the inputs. I loved it's sound and this unit is just like it. Great of Yamaha's best.

More than I even imagined!

I have owned three different brands before the Yamaha, and this one is the best quality, which is one of the reasons it was chosen by our quartet.

I love the on-board effects. All faders feel like top quality.

This mixer is a top quality mixer, yet pretty simple to operate. Anyone with a little experience can make this thing sound like a concert performance!

Tone and sound are like that of a mixer costing much, much more. Our quartet has used this mixer for four concerts so far and people, and our wives, are amazed at the sound and clarity compared to our old mixer. Nice job, Yamaha!!!

excellent powered mixer

oh yes, very dependalbe, sturdy, and not heavy not to light..

the 2 effects, can add power amp w/ it to make more powerful, can add another mixer to it to add more inputs, faders sliders are very easly to move, has a compression on it, feed back eliminator, only thing i would add is the abilty to use the power mixer power along with a power amp, for some reason u have to use one or the other, when hook up to anoth power amp u lose the powerr of the mixer and have to use just the amp by itself, but still powerful with out another amp. maybe i'm just not hooking it up right..

well if you know how to work a mixer then its very easly to use.. the only trouble i had was when i tried to hok up another amp to it, the power of the board seem to go away and the amp power was used, and when i tried hooking another mixer to it, i couldnt get sound out of the other mixer,

wow, very excellent, impressed by it.. i have the power p.a. of the same thing, but the mixer sound is like 100 times better..
