- Is it rack mountable? No but you'll find flightcases specially designed for this mixer.

- How many channels, groups, aux sends and returns ...)? 16 mono mic/line channels, four stereo line channels, six aux (four pre/post and two post fader) + two aux for internal effects.

Four groups, two effect returns.

- What kind of connections (RCA, phone, XLR...) does it have? Mono channels: unbalanced XLR or jack; Stereo channels: two unbalanced jacks.

- Does it have a parametric EQ? Semi-parametric mids, 4-band EQ on the stereo channels.



- Does it have an integrated effects section?...Two SPX effect modules.

The number of inputs, outputs, aux and groups is incredible considering the price. I give it an 8 because channels don't have direct outs. But the inserts are post gain and post EQ so you can easily use them as direct outs for recordings.

UTILIZATION

- How complicated is the overall configuration?It's an analog mixer so it's very easy to use.

- Is it easy to access the main functions? Analog mixer: One function = one button

- Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?[/b]... Yes

SOUNDS

- Does the desk sound "transparent"? Transparent is not the right word but when the input signal is good, the output signal is also good.

Does it generate noise? Slight hum noise above 0 dB but that's normal. Nothing serious.

- Is the EQ effective?... It's ok even though it has a bad reputation. I expected the worst after reading some user reviews, but you just have to avoid extreme settings. The quality of the EQ is ok.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you been using it? One month

- Which feature do you like the most / the least? Pros = number of aux sends and groups. Cons = no direct outs

- Did you try any other models before buying it? Mackie, Soundcraft, Allen & Health, Midas Venice, etc. This Yamaha is alright, it's neither the best nor the worst.



- How would you rate its value for money? Very good

- Based on your experience, would you choose this product again?... Yes, if I had the same budget. With a bit more money, I would buy an Allen & Health.
