Some shows simply demand stereo sound, and with its 400-watt per channel multi-mode stereo configuration the EMX68S can certainly deliver.
This advanced model also adds a number of refined features including a selection of 16 superb effects (including tap-delay) brought to you by professional-class Yamaha SPX digital signal processing technology, and a one-touch standby mode.
The EMX Powered mixers may be designed for convenient, easy operation, but that doesn't mean that basic quality and performance are compromised in any way. In fact, they inherit technology from the acclaimed Yamaha PM3500 and PM4000 sound reinforcement mixing consoles staples in the professional reinforcement field worldwide. Yamaha expertise and technological innovation is even at work in the details that deliver subtle but vital improvements in the overall sound: superior RF (Radio Frequency) rejection and exceptionally clean, transparent head amplifiers are just two examples.
The Power Amplifier:
High power alone is simply not enough. At any power level the amplifier's output must remain an accurate, uncolored image of the original input signal. That demands much more technological finesse than simply building a bigger amp. In addition to totally clean, natural power, the EMX power amplifiers feature Yamaha's unique EEEngine technology for extremely efficient operation with significantly reduced AC power consumption and heat generation factors that contribute to the lineup's light weight and compact dimensions as well.
Yamaha is no newcomer to the field of digital signal processing. Our professional outboard effect units and the effects built into our renowned digital mixing consoles set the standards for the industry. The EMX-series powered mixers benefit from the same cuttingedge technology. The EMX68S, EMX88S, and EMX5000 models, in particular, feature SPX digital effect technology with 24-bit AD/DA conversion and 32-bit internal processing . The EMX effects are more than mere "extras". They are professional-quality effects that can contribute to your sound in many important ways.
Rack Mounting and Efficient Forced-air Cooling:
With the exception of the largest model in the lineup the 20-channel EMX5000-20 all models can be rack-mounted using an optional rack-mounting kit* for optimum integration with any system or installation. in addition to the mixers' physical configuration, this is made possible by a highly efficient fan cooling system that ensures reliable, stable operation under just about any environmental conditions.
Another feature that illustrates Yamaha's sensitivity to the needs of the working musician is the Stand-by switch included on all stereo models: when you're done with a set simply engage the stand-by mode to mute all mono channels while leaving the 2-track inputs (and stereo channels on the console types) active for BGM playback while you're off stage.
Power Amp Mode Selector:
All models except for the single-amp EMX62M feature power amp mode selector switches so you can configure the amp channels to suit a range of applications. The EMX5000 models, for example, offer four choices: Main (L) + main (R) to drive stereo house speakers, Mono + AUX to drive a mono house speaker system plus a mono monitor system, AUX1 + AUX2 to drive a monitor system while an outboard power amplifier drives the house, and Mono Bridge to deliver a whopping 1000 watts to a subwoofer. The LPF filter provided on the EMX5000- 12/20 outputs is also an ideal feature for subwoofer drive.
Yamaha Speaker Processing:
Yamaha Club-series speakers are fine performers in their own right, but with Yamaha Speaker Processing you get extra-smooth highs and enhanced lowfrequency output.
