Yamaha has announced the release of two new models in the popular EMX series of integrated mixers, the EMX5 and EMX7. The new models feature a significant increase in output power and a more comprehensive selection of performance features in a very portable design. Suitable for musicians, performers, DJs, and public speakers who put a premium on sound quality and convenient operation, these new models will provide users with an ideal solution for a greater number of sound reinforcement environments, from small to mid-sized musical events, to fixed installations at bars and restaurants, houses of worship, rehearsal studios, and more.

EMX5 and EMX7 feature high-efficiency power amplifiers capable of 630 and 710 W output power respectively, and come equipped with an overload protection function to improve reliability. A rugged, extremely portable enclosure with a powder-coated, impact resistant metal chassis adds to the consoles’ durability while its versatile design easily adapts to horizontal or vertical placements in a variety of configurations.

Both EMX5 and EMX7 are equipped with four mono-input channels and four mono/stereo-input channels, allowing up to eight microphones, and line-level devices to be connected to each channel, and channel 4 can be used with Hi-Z inputs to connect instruments such as guitars or basses directly. Each model is also equipped with two aux send connections for a monitoring system or external effect devices, rec out unbalanced RCA-pin output jacks to connect an external recorder, and stereo out Trs phone jacks to output the mixed stereo signal. EMX5/7 also features speaker jacks which can be used with both TS phone and speak-on plugs. Both also feature highly-efficient internal universal power supply for operation in any region around the globe.

The new consoles feature Yamaha’s trademark 1-knob compressors as well as a comprehensive DSP section including 24 SPX effects, and speaker processor with presets tuned to perfectly match specific models of Yamaha’s passive speaker lineup for optimum performance.
