In response to the growing small-to-midsized sound reinforcement market--where demand for smaller-format analog mixing consoles remains strong--Yamaha Professional Audio offers the MG Series audio mixers at Winter NAMM 2003. User applications include project studios, classrooms, houses of worship, board rooms, personal monitoring and submixing.

The MG series, a refinement of Yamaha's MX and GF brands, includes six models that feature from 10-32 maximum mixing channels. All products will ship in the February through May 2003 timeframe with MSRPs ranging from $139 to $1,250. Input configurations include 4-24 mono channels with three-band EQ, and a maximum of four stereo inputs with either three- or four-band EQ. Higher-end models come equipped with a two or four GROUP and STEREO output buss structure.

Mono channel inputs contain both mic level XLR-type connectors and line level unbalanced TRS phone jacks. Stereo input channels are equipped with both unbalanced phone jacks and RCA phono jacks.

"With increased sales and falling price points of digital mixers in the marketplace, customers looking for small-format analog models often have to sacrifice features," states Wayne Hrabak, marketing manager, Professional Audio. "The MG line not only goes against that line of thought, but also shows that Yamaha still believes in the viability of the analog format."

From two to a maximum of eight AUX sends provide extended signal routing, while models MG16/6FX, MG24/14FX and MG32/14FX include high quality digital effects sections (two 32-bit SPX-type on the 24/14FX and 32/14FX models).
