Powerful Class-D Amplifier

The EMX5 features a built-in, highly-efficient, Class-D amplifier which delivers 2 x 630W of output power. Capable of high volume output, the amp remains surprisingly lightweight while the onboard overload protection function improves reliability, prolongs component life and performance quality.

Robust yet Extremely Portable

The Yamaha EMX5 benefits from a rugged, impact-resistant, powder-coated metal chassis that is ideal for extended operation and touring schedules. The large handles on the front and rear of the chassis help to provide a convenient and portable solution while also protecting both the knobs and connectors from impact during transport.

Simple Setup, User-Friendly Operation

Offering intuitive and user-friendly architecture, the EMX5 can be setup and operated quickly by users with a basic understanding of sound reinforcement. The versatile enclosure design allows you to choose from either horizontal or vertical placement depending on the type of application, whether it be a tabletop or permanent installation.

Comprehensive Input and Output Channels

Featuring four mono input channels and four mono/stereo input channels, the EMX5 can accommodate up to 8 microphones and/or line-level devices such as keyboards and portable playback devices. Additionally, channel 4 offers Hi-Z for connecting instruments such as guitars or basses directly. The two Aux Sends are ideal for connecting monitoring systems or external effect devices, while the Rec Out unbalanced output allows you to connect an external recorder and the Stereo Out TRS jacks output the overall mixed stereo signal.

1-Knob Master EQ™

Unique to the EMX5, the 1-knob Master EQ™ allows you to apply optimised EQ settings with the simple turn of a knob. The Speech setting is suitable for vocal applications due to the limited low end which ensures clear, defined speech. Additionally, the Music setting offers a balanced sound that is tailored to acoustic or band performances while the Bass Boost setting is ideal for DJ performances thanks to the emphasized bass responses and crisp high end.

1-Knob Comp

Equipped with the innovative 1-knob Comp function that can be found on MGP and MG series models, the Yamaha EMX5 delivers optimal compression for both vocals and instruments. By simply operating a single control, as the knob is turned to the right, the threshold, ratio and output gain are all adjusted simultaneously.

Professional Effects and Signal Processing

The EMX5 Powered Analog Mixer features a powerful DSP section that provides you with a total of 24 professional effects that are almost identical to Yamaha's legendary SPX effect processor series. Now you can add reverb and delay effects, plus many more, and simulate the sound of different performance environments such as concert halls or small clubs.
