Despite their compact construction, only speakers and a microphone are required to configure a fully functioning, extremely portable, and reliable sound system with all the tools you need to mix, process, and deliver your audio just the way you want, anywhere you want.

Powerful & High Efficiency Class-D Amplifier
The EMX5 features a built-in high-efficiency power amplifier of 2 x 630W of output power but despite their low power consumption, these amps are capable of very high volume output, yet still manage to remain surprisingly lightweight. It's also  equipped with an onboard overload protection function to improve reliability and prolong component life and performance quality.

Complete Range of Input & Output Channels
The EMX5 is equipped with four mono input channels and four mono/stereo input channels, allowing up to 8 microphones, and line-level devices such as keyboards and portable playback device to be connected to each channel. In addition, channel 4 can be used with Hi-Z inputs to connect instruments such as guitars or basses directly. 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 offers up a full compliment of "gizintas" & and "gezoutas"!

Onboard Feedback Suppressor
Few things make a live performance or speaking engagement take a negative turn like the sudden, uncomfortable, and often embarrassing howling of unwanted feedback. To combat this, the EMX5 boasts Feedback Suppressor that utilizes a unique Yamaha digital technology to instantly eliminate annoying feedback with the single switch of a button, which utilizes a seven-band notch filter.

Comprehensive, Professional Effects and Signal Processing
EMX5's are equipped with a powerful, comprehensive DSP section that provides a total of 24 different effects that are in the same league as our famed SPX effect processor series used by professionals. It is possible to add reverb and delay effects that simulate the sound of different performance environments, such as concert halls and small clubs.

Robust But Extremely Portable Design
The EMX5 benefits from a robust and portable design with a rugged, impact-resistant, powder-coated metal chassis geared towards extended operation and road usage. Large handles on the front and back of the enclosure make it extremely portable, and also help to protect knobs and terminals on the surface of the chassis from impact or pressure during transport.

1-Knob Master EQ
EMX5’s 1-Knob Master EQ lets you apply optimized EQ settings with the simple turn of a knob. The SPEECH setting is geared towards meetings, seminars, or conferences with a limited lower end for clear, defined speech; MUSIC offers a more balanced sound tailored to acoustic or band performances; and BASS BOOST is ideal for DJ performances or audio playback that puts a priority on emphasizing the base sound.

Sam Ash has unparalleled professionalism and friendly service! Very helpful and extremely knowledgeable! I not only would purchase again here, but I recommend others do the same.



Powerful. Still compact. Price is fair.


This unit was sorely needed by my duo. We needed good power in a compact, rack-mountable PA. It's is not as small as I'd prefer but the rack-mounted option closed the deal. (Note that Yamaha does not include rack-mount kit; it is sold separately and is not cheap. We passed on that and I had enough hardware to fabricate my own mount). In a rack I 'm able to keep it cabled to other toys, power,etc., so all we use is in one Anvil case. Wattage is more than adequate and we sound much cleaner. Yamaha needs to include the rack kit. It would help their image.



Little big Mixer


Really an 8 channel mixer. Very good chorus and reverb effects. Stereo channels very effective. This is the third Yamaha mixer for me so obviously I like them. The EMX -7 has a graphic equalizer but this one doesn't. It has a one knob parametric thingie. Seems to do the job. Worth the money.



Still A Work In Progress ...


This was also an amplified replacement for the previous powered mixer - haven't connected it permanently, though, as I'm still working through the nuts and bolts of all the other equipment. However, I hope to have a more promising report in the future!
