"Excellent analog mixer for the money for small bands or personal use."

Excerpt: The mic pre's are what everyone focusses on first when evaluating a mixer, and this one's sound pretty clean to me. I use this both for sound reinforcement and recording in my humble home studio and it works great for both (unless you have a huge band/orchestra to deal with - in which case you wouldn't be considering this board). I have not noticed any noise or other signal degradation.
"It really does offer the best quality, the best sound, the best value.... Do your homework and you will purchase this board."

Excerpt: The sound , spedcially the pre-mics are the best. I was forced to use a Bheringer for the lst 5 years and I think my ear became accoustomed to the so-so sound. The first dasy we set up with this new board.... every sound that went through the Yamaha board came alive!
Excerpt: I have been though my share of mixers for my band , looking for the best bang for the buck for nlive sound! I have found it, this board is a dream for small to medium gigs and outdoor events, it has fantastic preamps they really blew me away with there clarity, the channel E3Qs work very well and the one knob compressor is very handy on vocals. In a word everything you need is here, aux sends etc...just great!
Excerpt: I give it a 10 based on my Extensive experience and the Price point this mixer is hitting. Other Mixers I own are Yamaha MX200, Peavey XR684*, Behringer Mx2004a, And Have owned Mackie 1204VLZpro, Pioneer DJM600 as well as worked on Most other well known Mixers in Live venues. the MGCX compressors work well on a vocal live. I was skeptical about the one knob comp, as I'm quite a compressor buff and like my controls.
