Deliver powerful performance, greater portability and an updated look.

Yamaha today unveiled the latest models in the company’s popular EMX series powered mixer lineup, which incorporate powerful new professional features as well as an updated look and interface.
Since its debut 30 years ago, the EMX Series has earned its stellar reputation by providing users having little or no live sound reinforcement experience with a compact, reliable, versatile and easy-to-use mixer requiring minimum setup and connections. Yamaha is the best-selling line of powered mixers in the U.S.
Like their predecessors, each of the new models – the EMX2, EMX5 and EMX7 – seamlessly integrates a mixer, power amplifiers and digital effects into a single chassis, requiring only speakers and microphones to realize a fully functioning sound system.
The EMX2, EMX5 and EMX7 all feature Class-D power amps delivering 500, 630 and 710 Watts respectively of power, offering lightweight, yet powerful sound reinforcement options for bands and mobile DJ performances in small- to mid-sized events, as well as for worship, nightclub or retail business applications.
All models include legendary Yamaha SPX effects for hall, plate, room and echo reverbs. The EMX2 and the EMX5 include an updated 1-Knob Master EQ™ sound contour control to easily adjust the overall sound frequency balance. The EMX7 features a flex-type graphic equalizer (Flex9GEQ) that allows the user to select up to nine bands out of a total of 31 for fine tuning±15 dB
A new Feedback Suppressor incorporating proprietary Yamaha digital technology instantly eliminates annoying feedback with the single push of a button.
Drawing inspiration from the Yamaha STAGEPAS 600i Portable PA System, the entry level 10-input EMX2 features 500 Watts (2 x 250 Watts) of amplification, four high quality microphone pre-amps and three stereo line inputs. This model is surprisingly compact (14.8” x 5.8” x 8.7”), making it easy to fit along with speakers in the trunk of a small car.
Moving up the line, the EMX5 and EMX7 each offer 12 input channels and can output to 630 Watts and 710 Watts respectively. Users can connect up to eight microphones or line-level devices, such as keyboards and CD players and portable MP3 players.
