The Yamaha MG206C Mixing Console is a lightweight and compact mixer that will deliver serious performance at the studio, club, hall, or anywhere. The MG206C Mixing Console offers substantial signal routing versatility that will give you the capacity, control, and performance you deserve.

Versatile Connectivity and Pro-class Connectors
Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and re-patching your system quick and easy. All models feature high-quality Neutrik balanced XLR connectors on mono microphone/line channels and XLR-equipped stereo channels. These professional-class connectors were subjected to extensive testing by the Yamaha design team, and were chosen for the MG mixers for their superior reliability and sonic qualities. The XLR-equipped stereo channels can accept mono microphone input either via the XLR or phone jack connectors. The remaining stereo channels provide phone jack and pin jack connectors for compatibility with a wide range of sources. Mono input channels also feature insert I/O connectors that let you patch external signal processing gear into those channels as required. Separate pinjack 2TR inputs are provided to accept the output from a CD player or similar stereo source.

Built-in Channel Compressors
This advanced feature can be a tremendous advantage in achieving great vocal sound, as well as 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 MG audio mixers you have Yamaha's innovative one-knob compression feature on several of the mono input channels. 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.

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. Gain trim covers a wide - 60dB -16dB range for microphones (-34dB +10dB for line input), so you'll be able to achieve optimum level matching with just about any source. All microphone preamps also feature switchable phantom power so you can take advantage of the natural, extended response of high-quality condenser microphones.

3-Band Channel EQ and High-Pass Filters
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. All mono channels feature 3-band equalizers with LOW, MID, and HIGH controls. Although not directly related to the equalizer circuitry, all inputs also feature 80Hz low-pass filters that can be used to eliminate subsonic noise that is outside the equalizers' range.

Aux/Effect Sends
Three AUX sends provide convenient routing to processing and monitor systems. Master send controls are also provided, as are RETURN level controls for the AUX and STEREO busses.

Two, Four or Six Buses (Stereo and Group)
The 206C Audio Mixer has two stereo group buses and outputs that can be used for convenient channel grouping. Assign switches for the stereo and group buses are located next to each channel fader.

Smooth 60-Millimeter Faders & Illuminated Channel ON Switches
Channel and master level control is accomplished via reliable, high performance 60-millimeter linear faders that provide smooth, noise-free operation. When you have more than a few channels the direct visual indication of relative level settings can be an important advantage. Also featured are illuminated channel ON switches that can be used to individually add or remove channels from the mix without having to change the positions of the channel faders.

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.

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

I bought this because my band outgrew my 12 channel Yamaha board, and I needed more options. I've only gigged with the MG206C once but it worked flawlessly. Controls are logical and easy to use. Audience members commented "best live sound you've ever done!" With my old board I got a little hiss from the main speakers. This new board is SILENT. I thought my speakers were not working at first. I'm completely satisfied with my purchase.

This is a mixer that can take some abuse!

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

Yamaha has a history of making great sounding products that last and this one is no exception. I've used this one for quite some time with no issues. The pres are nice and clean with good headroom, the controls are pretty extensive, the effects are solid and it doesn't feel cheap. Well worth the money!

Sounds OK, But...

By Mark Hardin

from San Angelo, TX

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

The headphone and monitor section stopped working. Can't get the mixer replaced or fixed. No-one wants to honor the warranty. I used to like Yamaha stuff, but this is just another piece of foreign made garbage with no support.
