    Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

    Picked this up at the Westlake Guitar Center store in Seattle, and took it home. It replaced another large format rack mixer that broke that morning. So the same day I went in and took it home. All I have to say is wow! Great sound quality, the compression is very good for solid state / digital and I have been using it every day for THREE YEARS of daily use! It's very easy to switch on/off thru my rack, the bottom is thin so it can be mounted right above another large rack mixer w/ all the room for it's cables. The USB recording quality is decent but the analog outs are really where this unit shines.

    Love this mixer

    By Bishop

    Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

    I am learning how to work this mixer, but through it all it mets what I expect in the end, with some of the spec, clear sound, and powerful board this mixer have been effective in many ways. I have alot more to learn only had the mixer for a week now, and I hope to add one more Dig-Mixter to the studio. Building a small but productive home studio, and is working on turning it into a perfessional studio within the youth ministry without having to pay alot of money in the end.

    Great for my Home Recording needs

    By Michael

    from Bronx, New York

    Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

    I bough this mixer mainly to record vocals in combination with a TASCAM DP-03 recorder, and the quality is amazing, this mixer has it all, including 24 different sound effects. And remember that it's a mixer not a multi track recorder, which means that the USB connection mixes down all instruments and michrophones connected, and send to the CUBASE recording software. The Yamaha MG16XU it's made of metal en the top of the console, solid plastic on the sides, and the knobs are plastic also, but durable. This Mixer has universal voltage auto regulator, giving you the freedom of traveling anywhere in the world without any extra current converter. So far it's a excellent piece of instrument and I strongly recomend it..
