Compact, lightweight mixer with heavyweight pro features.

The Yamaha MG206C Mixing Console is a lightweight and compact mixer that will deliver serious performance at the studio, club, hall, or anywhere. The MG206C mixer offers substantial signal routing versatility that will give you the capacity, control, and performance you deserve.

Versatile Connectivity and Pro-class Connectors

Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and re-patching your system quick and easy. All models feature high-quality Neutrik balanced XLR connectors on mono microphone/line channels and XLR-equipped stereo channels. These professional-class connectors were subjected to extensive testing by the Yamaha design team, and were chosen for the MG mixers for their superior reliability and sonic qualities. The XLR-equipped stereo channels can accept mono microphone input either via the XLR or phone jack connectors. The remaining stereo channels provide phone jack and pin jack connectors for compatibility with a wide range of sources. Mono input channels also feature insert I/O connectors that let you patch external signal processing gear into those channels as required. Separate pinjack 2TR inputs are provided to accept the output from a CD player or similar stereo source.

Built-in Channel Compressors

This advanced feature can be a tremendous advantage in achieving great vocal sound, as well as to refine the sound of bass, guitar, and other sources. You won't find built-in channel compression on too many other mixers in this class, but in the MG audio mixers you have Yamaha's innovative one-knob compression feature on several of the mono input channels. Conventional audio compressors with their threshold, ratio, knee, makeup gain and other controls can be complex and time consuming to set appropriately for a given source. Yamaha's one-knob compressor eliminates the need for an engineering degree with a single control that lets you simply dial in the amount of compression you want.

High-performance Microphone Preamplifiers with Switchable Phantom Power

Microphone preamplifiers are critical in any mixer, and a performance bottleneck in many. That's why pros often spend thousands of dollars on just a single channel of microphone pre-amplification. The microphone preamps built into the MG mixers inherit technology from Yamaha's top-line professional consoles, and have been painstakingly designed to deliver superior sonic performance with any dynamic or condenser microphone. Gain trim covers a wide - 60dB ~ -16dB range for microphones (-34dB ~ +10dB for line input), so you'll be able to achieve optimum level matching with just about any source. All microphone preamps also feature switchable phantom power so you can take advantage of the natural, extended response of high-quality condenser microphones.

3-band Channel EQ and High-pass Filters

Building a truly useful, musical-sounding channel equalizer is no easy task, but Yamaha has decades of experience in building pro consoles to draw on. All mono channels feature 3-band equalizers with LOW, MID, and HIGH controls. Although not directly related to the equalizer circuitry, all inputs also feature 80 Hz low-pass filters that can be used to eliminate subsonic noise that is outside the equalizers' range.

Aux/Effect Sends

Three AUX sends provide convenient routing to processing and monitor systems. Master send controls are also provided, as are RETURN level controls for the AUX and STEREO busses.

Two, Four or Six Buses (Stereo and Group)

The 206C audio mixer has two stereo group buses and outputs that can be used for convenient channel grouping. Assign switches for the stereo and group buses are located next to each channel fader.

Smooth 60-millimeter Faders & Illuminated Channel ON Switches

Channel and master level control is accomplished via reliable, high performance 60-millimeter linear faders that provide smooth, noise-free operation. When you have more than a few channels the direct visual indication of relative level settings can be an important advantage. Also featured are illuminated channel ON switches that can be used to individually add or remove channels from the mix without having to change the positions of the channel faders.

Easy Operation

All switches, controls, and displays have been designed and laid out for intuitive access and smooth, reliable operation with positive tactile and visual feedback.

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

I bought this mixer to upgrade from my old Behringer Europower PMP 3000, and i am satisfied with the production quality i am getting out of it.

My only few gripes is that; it doesn't have on-board effects, its not universal voltage/frequency, and it's outer shell feels like cheap plastic.

but as far as the sound i am getting coupled with its built in compressors, i am very pleased with my purchase so far...

now if it was only powered for the same price...

The MG Series Represents an Unbeatable Value

By hondo

from Long Island

Ask me a question

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

There really is no compewtition for this mixer when you consider features, sound and value.
Really, if this board had built-in effects, it would be a world beater. It's a shame that you need to go to a 20 input desk to get 16 mic pres, because we have the 16 channel and we're short one mic input (although we do "fudge" that to get by)
Everything works all the time the way it should
For the price...are you kidding me? There is NO better value in a live desk and the entire MG series seems designed to prove that you CAN have sound and features without feeling like you wish you had spent more.

Great Live Mixer

By BongoFever

from S.F Bay Area

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

Well, I'm not sure that Yamaha makes the best sounding mixers, you can't beat this for the price as a great live PA mixer in a 19" rack case. There's so many channels and inputs, the channel strips don't line-up...so that can be confusing. But you can't beat the overall value this unit provides. I can run 6-8 mics on the drum kit and group that in stereo, mix the guitar/bass instruments into another stereo sub-group, and dial those levels into the vocals on the main mix. It's got everything you need for a fully-mixed stage sound, without having to carry around a desktop board. NICE. For home studio or recording, not sure this would be my first choice, but for live gigs...this board is great.

Can't beat Yamaha MGs

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

As my needs have been getting bigger, I just keep getting new Yamaha mixers, but the old ones are still going strong.Old EMX88s powered box still used for small stuff, MG16/6FX running the rehearsal studio PA, and for the new band, this MG201C, and what a wonderful mixer it is. Can?t beat the value of the MG series imho.

Everything you need in a mixer

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

My band blew up our other mixer at the very beginning of our set about a month ago (it was a Behringer - I don't even want to talk about it). Hurting for a mixer, we decided to go all out and get something a little more professional. I had been looking at the MG's for a couple of months and the time came to buy it.BY FAR the best compact board I have ever used. It's easy to use. Pre's sound amazing. We can hook the iPod up to check everything. It has 4 Aux sends that we use for four separate monitor sends. And we can mic everything on stage and still have channels left over.Best bang for your buck. If mine got stolen, I'd buy another.

Yamaha MG206C

By Pachuau

from India

Comments about Yamaha MG206C Mixer:

We just bought this mixer and i love it. It has all the features needed for a console this size and is a lot cheaper than other brands with the same number of channels. There are lots of outputs - 4 aux sends for effects or monitor mix, 4 buses and a main stereo bus and separate monitor/headphones out. Easy to operate for beginners. Very clean sound, and quiet. The built in channel compressors are very useful if you cant afford a separate compressor for each channel.The only complain i have is that the controls are a little bit crowded (but understandable because it is designed to be rack mountable). For this price range, it cannot get any better than this!
