For years, Yamaha's EMX series powered mixers have offered portability, simplicity, economy and reliability for small-to-medium sound reinforcement applications. In response to market demand for even lighter, roadworthy designs, Yamaha Professional Audio will showcase a series of updated 6- and 8-channel models at Winter NAMM 2002.

Like their predecessors, the new editions feature built-in amplification and onboard digital effects, including Yamaha's acclaimed reverb technology. Internal amplifiers now deliver 200-400 Watts of efficient power and contain proprietary YSP circuitry that tailors the response curve to match Yamaha Club Series speakers. All models are now housed in rugged high-impact molded enclosures, and--due to the decreased space considerations of many permanent and portable applications--are rack mountable.

"The Yamaha EMX series has a proven history of excellence," states Wayne Hrabak, marketing manager, Professional Audio. "With these recent upgrades, the line should be even more attractive for solo performers, bands, houses of worship and corporate applications."

The six-input EMX62M (MSRP $499) features a single 200-Watt (4 ohm) amplifier and built-in limiter to prevent damage from feedback or overload. Channels 1-4 have balanced XLR connectors with switchable pads and phantom power, plus balanced 1/4-in. jacks. Inputs 5 and 6 each include two unbalanced inputs. All channels contain 2-band EQ, plus independent monitor and effects sends. RCA connectors with separate level control for a tape recorder or a CD player are also conveniently located on the front panel. The unit also contains a professional quality 7-band graphic equalizer and eight digital effects. The 6-channel EMX66M (MSRP $649) has all the features of the EMX62M, with the addition of two 300-Watt (4 ohm) switchable amplifiers, 3-band channel EQ, and two 7-band graphic equalizers.

The EMX68S (MSRP $799) features a 6-channel stereo design with two switchable 400-Watt (4 ohm) amplifiers, an All Channel Mute switch and 16 built-in digital effects--based on the popular Yamaha SPX effects processors. Two flexible 7-band graphic EQs (stereo for mains, mono for monitors) provide feedback control and signal shaping. The EMX88S (MSRP $899) mirrors the features of the EMX68S, with the addition of an 8-channel stereo design.

"Yamaha's upgraded EMX powered mixers will continue to offer both dealers and end users the winning combination of professional features and economy," states John Schauer, product manager, Professional Audio.
