Yamaha MGP16X Mixing Desk
Yamaha's Class-A D-PRE microphone preamps make use of an inverted Darlington circuit design and deliver a fat, rich, smooth tone that gives the MGP16X a significant advantage over any other mixer in its class. With Yamaha's proprietary X-pressive EQ, the MGP16X manages to capture ultimate analogue authenticity by unlocking the mysterious secret behind the expressive sound shaping capabilities of sought-after classic EQ modules.
At the heart of the MGP16X's compact configuration, Yamaha have taken an innovative new approach to the utilisation of digital technology in an analogue mixer, adding high-resolution effects, iPod/iPhone integration and the superb functionality of the Stereo Hybrid Channel to the warmth and musicality of premium analogue sound. The MGP16X represents the ultimate balance of the converging technologies that are the heart and soul of Yamaha's extraordinary achievements in professional audio.
The preamp is where sound creation begins, and ultimately determines the character and quality of your overall mix. The importance of this critical first step inspired Yamaha to develop the most fat and warm sounding preamps possible - D-PRE mic preamps. Initially intended for use with Yamaha's high-end recording gear, these studio-grade, discrete Class-A mic preamps employ an inverted Darlington circuit design that features multiple circuitry elements in a multi-layered configuration in order to deliver more power with lower impedance. This means all the character, depth and feel of your original signal will be delivered with fat, natural sounding bass and smooth, soaring highs. Rediscover a favourite mic or trusted instrument by capturing the full range of your musical expression with sound that you don't hear, so much as feel. With 48V phantom power for each channel and a sound that is incomparable in a compact mixer today, these studio-grade discrete Class-A mic preamps set the MGP apart, clearly defining a class of its own.
Everyone knows vintage EQ sounds great - but not everyone knows why. Throughout the development of the innovative VCM (Virtual Circuit Modeling) effects used in Yamaha's high-end professional digital mixers, Yamaha became increasingly focused on reproducing the warmth and musicality of classic vintage EQs. It was through precise modelling of the original circuitry of some of the most sought-after EQ modules from the past that Yamaha discovered a characteristic 'X-shape' of the frequency curves that was unique to these units - and would ultimately prove essential to unlocking real vintage authenticity. More than just a means of tweaking your mix, the precise response and very steep shelving of the high and low frequencies make the X-pressive EQ a powerful sound-shaping tool that essentially redefines the role that EQ plays in sound reinforcement. Never before has an audio engineer's contribution to the overall sound been so significant, with X-pressive EQ providing complete control of every aspect of your sonic palette.
Originally a Yamaha innovation, 1-knob compression is now a popular feature on an increasing number of compact mixing consoles with good reason. These intelligent compressors add optimally set compression to a wide variety of input sources with the touch of a single control - minus the hassle of setting up and configuring complex outboard gear. The MGP features Yamaha's upgraded 1-knob compressors that feature LED indicators allowing you to visually monitor when the compression 'kicks in' on each channel.
Durability is simply not an issue with the MGP16X. With a rugged, impact-resistant, powder-coated steel chassis, the MGP16X is more than ready for the rigours of road abuse. The sleek design of the chassis is contoured for optimal convection cooling, further extending the lifetime of the components inside, while the internal layout separates the power supply from the analogue circuitry for superior noise reduction. What's more, knob control placement above the surface of the chassis ensures that any impact or pressure on the knobs will be absorbed by the chassis and not the circuit board or potentiometers underneath.
Integrated Rack Ears
With integrated rack ears, the MGP16X easily meets the demands of both installed and portable applications providing safe, stable protection for your console. Extremely durable, their sleek, attractive design instantly gives you the option of a rack-mounted or desk-top configuration, with hassle-free setup saving you time and effort.
Beneath the analogue-style knobs and encoders of the MGP16X lies a sophisticated digital control system - a fusion that combines traditional analogue feel with the functionality that only digital technology can offer. The MGP16X utilises a powerful, proprietary DSP to provide three essential features that are staples of both installed and live sound applications. In keeping with the theme of analogue simplicity, each of these functions is readily accessible and available at the touch of a button. Featuring a mid-sweep, three-band EQ for nuanced sound control and high-performance onboard A/D and D/A converters, the Stereo Hybrid Channel offers unique functionality with superior sound.
Dual Digital Effects
The Yamaha MGP16X offers two separate studio-grade effects processors for ultimate enhancement of your sound, with simple intuitive control. Yamaha's high-end REV-X reverb offers three very musical and natural high-resolution reverb effects: Hall, Room and Plate - a first for any Yamaha analogue mixer. For more sound-shaping possibilities, Yamaha's renowned SPX digital multi-effect processor provides a useful selection of 16 advanced digital effects with editable parameters. Both processors can be used simultaneously, giving you a vast array of tools to colour your sound.
Digital Connectivity for iPod/iPhone
In response to the growing demand for compatibility with iDevices, iPod/iPhone integration with the MGP16X offers much more than simple playback. With a single connection your Apple device is transformed into a flexible controller, giving you more detailed control of your MGP16X console.

Yamaha DXR12 Active PA Speaker (single)
Yamaha DXR12 loudspeakers offer superb high-definition sound and class-leading sound pressure levels in a compact and extremely functional design that provides a level of versatility unmatched by any speaker in its class today. The DXR12 is perfectly suited for front-of-house sound, monitors, simple amplification, rigged applications and more. Combining the DXR12 with Yamaha's DXS subwoofers will further elevate your system's performance, giving you versatile control of its thunderous bottom end. With the perfect balance of raw power and innovative speaker technologies, you can depend on DXR Series speakers to deliver the full power of your performance to every member of your audience.
The Power of 'D'
Yamaha's development team took full advantage of a number of advanced digital technologies, both new and refined, when creating the DXR12. Everything from the detailed management of crossover, EQ and time alignment to the limiter settings, protection functions and precise dynamic control of the sound, was subjected to endless simulation, in-house and field testing to ensure that these speakers produce the highest level of sound quality at the highest output levels possible. Combined with Yamaha's advanced analogue signal processing and acoustic technologies, the DXR12 delivers ultimate performance.
Ultra-Precise 48-Bit DSP Processing for High-Definition Sound
The DXR12 features Yamaha's proprietary FIR-X tuning, utilising linear phase FIR filters for the crossover network. FIR-X tuning simultaneously optimises frequency and phase response while adjusting the time alignment between the HF and LF transducers. This creates a very smooth response around the crossover point, providing much better clarity and imaging than what is possible with typical crossovers.
All signals are precisely processed by a 48-bit (76-bit accumulator) high-performance processor for high definition sound quality. The Yamaha DXR12 employs high-precision 24-bit discrete A/D and D/A converters with superior S/N ratio and dynamic range.
Intelligent Dynamic Control for Consistent Clarity at Any Output Level
D-CONTOUR is an intelligent multi-band compressor that gives you powerful and consistent sound throughout all output levels. By constantly monitoring the output of multiple frequency bands and calculating the optimum EQ adjustments for each, even the maximum sound output maintains outstanding clarity and musicality.
With the DXR12, D-CONTOUR provides a more detailed tuning of your sound with two different settings: FOH/ MAIN mode or MONITOR mode. FOH/MAIN mode boosts low-frequency to compensate for low-end that is typically missing when speakers are used in suspended applications or mounted on a speaker stand. MONITOR mode is completely optimised for floor monitor application by intelligently taming down the low-frequency that adds up due to floor reflection, smoothing out a wide range of frequency bands to give you stunning clarity for monitoring your sound. Both of these presets were perfected by performing countless listening tests with skilled sound engineers, giving you a multi-band compressor that performs dynamically, delivering consistent sound with low distortion at any output level.
Compact, High-Power DXR Amp Modules
The DXR12 is equipped with highly efficient Class-D amplifiers that were optimally designed to match the DXR12's HF and LF transducers. These high-performance amplifiers deliver the highest sound output in their class with 1100W of power, producing an impressive SPL up to 133dB. They also provide very fast attack and superior transient response, which greatly contribute to these speakers' incredible audio performance.
Intelligent Onboard 3-Channel Mixer
The Yamaha DXR12 features a flexible onboard mixer with a variety of inputs, making it ideal for simple vocal/instrument amplification. With its flexible IN/OUT, the DXR12 can comprise a full sound reinforcement system, or seamlessly integrate into a setup utilising DSR or DXS Series speakers.
The DXR12 onboard mixer can handle up to three simultaneous inputs. It accepts both Mic and Line level inputs, giving you the flexibility to connect to a variety of sources from microphones to line level instruments and portable audio devices. When in MIC position, a HPF is automatically activated to roll off unwanted low frequency.
Each channel has an individual volume control, letting you mix three discrete audio sources. THRU out passes the input signal from Channel 1 and LINK OUT sends mixed signal from all channels-ideal for daisy-chaining or routing the signal to another destination. LINK OUT is very useful for configuring a compact SR system with another DXR, while LINK MODE allows you to easily switch between stereo or dual-mono configurations.
Flexible HPF Control
The DXR12 features flexible HPF control to perfectly match with DSR and DXS subwoofers. You can choose either 100Hz or 120Hz depending on which subwoofer you are using in combination with the DXR12. DXS Series subwoofers feature flexible LPF settings allowing you to find the optimal HPF/LPF balance for your sound.
Durable, Compact ABS Enclosure
Full-range models are moulded in rugged, non-resonant ABS enclosures and are designed to dampen down vibrations caused by high output levels, producing less distortion and superior sonic quality. The road-tested enclosures are equipped with heavy-duty steel grilles and ergonomic, gripped aluminium handles that greatly improve durability and portability.
Symmetrical Enclosure Design for Mirror-Mode Floor Monitoring
The DXR12 enclosure design enables mirror-mode monitor placement that creates a symmetrical sound field for the performer with a larger, more defined 'sweet spot'. Used in either a balanced dual-mono configuration or a stereo monitor mix setup, mirror-mode floor monitoring can enhance your performance considerably.
Dual-Angle Pole Mount Socket
Depending on the venue, sometimes your mix can fall prey to low ceilings or other room attributes that can impede a clear, even mix and detract from the audiences' listening experience significantly. The DXR12's pole mount socket offers two positions - 0 and 7 degrees - to direct the acoustic energy away from reflective surfaces and on to your audience where it belongs.
Rigging Points for Standard Eye-Bolts and Optional U-Brackets
The Yamaha DXR12 comes equipped with rigging points, allowing for rigged application with standard eyebolts (not included). When more versatility is required, optional U-brackets allow simple and easy rigging in both horizontal and vertical configurations.
