The Yamaha 10-Input stereo mixer offers sonic quality that will satisfy the most critical listener, surprising flexibility and ease-of-use, and some advanced features you normally wouldn't find in this type of compact mixer.

Flexible 10-Input Channel Configurations
The Yamaha mixer has a total of 10 input channels consisting of two mono microphone/line channels and four stereo line channels. The stereo channel can be used as mono microphone inputs, providing a total of four microphone inputs when necessary. Gain trim covers a wide -60dB - -16dB range for microphone input, and -34dB - +10dB for line input.

Comprehensive, Easy-access Connector Panel
Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and re-patching your system quick and easy. The Yamaha mixer features high-quality Neutrik balanced XLR connectors on both mono microphone/line channels and two of the stereo channels. The XLR-equipped stereo channels can accept mono microphone input either via the XLR or phone jack connectors. The remaining two stereo channels on the Yamaha 10-Input stereo mixer provide phone jack and pin jack connectors for compatibility with a wide range of sources. The two mono input channels also feature insert I/O connectors that let you patch external signal processing gear into those channels as required. Separate pin-jack 2TR inputs are provided to accept the output from a CD player or similar stereo source.

Four High-Performance Microphone Preamplifiers with Switchable Phantom Power
Microphone preamplifiers are critical in any mixer, and a performance bottleneck in many. That's why pros often spend thousands of dollars on just a single channel of microphone pre-amplification. The microphone preamps built into the MG mixers inherit technology from Yamaha's top-line professional consoles, and have been painstakingly designed to deliver superior sonic performance with any dynamic or condenser microphone. All four microphone preamps also feature switchable phantom power so you can take advantage of the natural, extended response of high quality condenser microphones. A single switch turns phantom power on or off for all four channels.

Built-in Channel Compressors
This advanced feature can be a tremendous advantage in achieving great vocal sound. It can also be used to refine the sound of bass, guitar, and other sources. You won't find built-in channel compression on too many other mixers in this class, but in the Yamaha mixer you have Yamaha's innovative one-knob compression feature on mono input channels 1 and 2. Conventional audio compressors with their threshold, ratio, knee, makeup gain and other controls can be complex and time-consuming to set appropriately for a given source. Yamaha's one-knob compressor eliminates the need for an engineering degree with a single control that lets you simply dial in the amount of compression you want.

3-band Channel EQ and High-pass Filter
Building a truly useful, musical-sounding channel equalizer is no easy task, but Yamaha has decades of experience in building pro consoles to draw on, and you reap the benefits in the MG-series mixers. Channels 1, 2, 3/4, and 5/6 feature full 3-band equalizers with LOW, MID, and HIGH controls, while channels 7/8 and 9/10 have 2-band EQ for smooth equalization of stereo sources.

Master & output section

Effect/Aux Sends
The Yamaha MG102C stereo mixer has AUX send controls on all channels, and these adjust the level of the signal sent from the corresponding channel to the AUX SEND jack that can be used to feed external effects or a monitor system. A RETURN control in the master section of both models adjusts the level of the signal returned from external processors via the RETURN jacks.

Stereo, Control Room, Monitor, and Headphone Outputs
Located above the audio mixer's master controls, on the convenient easy-access connector panel, are the main stereo output connectors, phone-jack monitor output connectors, pin-jack recording outputs, and a stereo headphone jack. They may be compact, but these mixers offer plenty of connectivity for a wide range of applications

Lightweight, Portable Design
The Yamaha MG102C weighs only 1.6 and 1.5 kilograms. That's small enough to pop into your briefcase or shoulder bag and easily take with you anywhere. But the performance you'll get at the studio, club, outdoors, or anywhere you choose to use these fine mixers is far from lightweight.

Bright Meters for Visual Level Monitoring
Accurate visual level monitoring can help you achieve maximum signal-to-noise ratio without distortion. The MG mixer's bright, easy-to-read 12-segment LED meters make it easy to control system levels for optimum overall performance.

Easy Operation

All switches, controls, and displays have been designed and laid out for intuitive access and smooth, reliable operation with positive tactile and visual feedback.

Great Mixer

By CoheedandorCambria

from Ohio

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

This is a great mixer for a small home studio setup, which is what I use it for. It is very low noise when recording and monitoring. Has phantom power, although Ive never used it. Very durable, ive taken it back and forth to practices and nothing has been broken. Great Mixer for small bands, microphones, home audio, and small gigs.

Nice little board-good for acoustic guitar and vocals

By FLAKCA - Florida Alaska California

from Yorba Linda, California

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

I bought this mixer because I didn't want to haul around my big rack for small venues, and I wanted to have something at the house that was easy to use and had a good sound. This mixer has a warm, sweet sound, much better than my little Mackie Omni, though probably not as good as my Allen Heath wizard. The best thing about it is the compression and eq. Some of the layout is a little quirky. The only thing i would change is give it two auxes. Right now you can't control monitors and effects on a channel by channel basis, but it is not a deal breaker. Nothing else touches it for the money. I'd buy it again. I'm using a TC Electronics echo/reverb unit and sending the output into some Mackie SRM350's. It is a great sound for acoustic guitar and vocals. Good job Yamaha. I play out at gigs or open mics 3 or 4 times a week.

Excellent Low Cost Mixer

By Mike K.

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

I bought the Yamaha MG102 mixer for use with my keyboard setup. I have a Korg M3 workstation with the external Radias vocoder. Before I bought this mixer, I had a single Yamaha monitor on each of these devices which worked OK... I was not happy but it worked. Things changed when I picked up a Korg X50 synth from a guy that quit another band. Now I had 3 stereo devices and only a single pair of monitors. So I picked up this 10 channel mixer and problem solved! This thing is absolutely incredible for the money. There are 4 stereo inputs (Channels 3-10) and 2 mono inputs with compression. It also has 4 XLR inputs with phantom power. Each channel has an equalizer and volume knob so you can control the mix and a LED level indicator for the output. Speaking of outputs, there is a stereo headphone jack and L/R outputs for monitors AND stereo out to send to a recording device or whatever. I have to say that I bought this just for my keyboards but now I use the extra inputs for my portable digital recorder (I hope you have one of these to catch all your great ideas!) I also feed the audio output from my computer to the mixer so I can download and listen to music on a nice set of monitors. I don't know how you will have it set up but if you need something small, low priced, and packed with easy to use features then this mixer is for you.

Awsome performance, low price!

By Bryan Montrford

from Springfield Missouri

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

This is a very functional and professional little mixer. It's exceptionally transparent, easy to use, and even informative. I love the sound quality. Need a small job done right? This is it. I'm not aware of anything on the market that matches the performance to cost ratio.

Solid mixing board, nice price

By loganizer

from Springfield, UT

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

Probably the best you will find in this price range.... very solidly constructed. The comp was kind of a let down for me, as it is only one knob that automatically compensates for certain parameters as it is turned.... still, may be useful on location (this thing is nice and portable)

Nice mixer for the money.

By Andy Riehle

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

This mixer provides a good balance of price and function. Down the road I can see a problem with durability, seeing as it is made entirely from plastic, but good for a home studio or a small recording gig. Have used it to record a few vocal recitals and concerts, and the gain and comp proved to be very useful. Good product for a tight budget.

Great performance, Great Price

By DJ The Hawk

from Hayward, CA

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

This is a great mixer. It has great EQ's, a compresser, which makes your sound better, lots of RCA for DJing, aux send, ohantom, and little tabs to mark you channels. There is a REC out so you can record. There is a light to show how loud you are except mine doesn't work. It is also bad because there isn't a an XLR output. But it is still good. This mixer is great for any DJ, Audio Tech or Studio Tech.

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

This is a really good product and a nice way to expand your existing system for a low price. We have a limited number of channels in our powered mixer, and using this product works very well

Great Board

By Tom

from Hoffman Estates IL

Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

I am a one man band. I put a Taylor 414ce into it with no other effects. Sounds great this is not what I'm used to. For the price and mobility what else is there?
