    I play mostly acoustic professionally and dabble at home with electric classic rock. After years of lugging around two great-sounding but HEAVY Fender Acoustasonic SFX amps as a makeshift stereo PA rig, I finally decided to look for a compact, sturdy, and great-sounding alternative. After a good deal of research and testing, I settled on the Yamaha Stagepas 300. For its size, the Stagepas sounds excellent and suits my needs for most of the venues I play. Larger places generally have their own systems, anyways. As a straight PA for singer/songwriters, the system sounds great. The small speakers worried me at first, but I quickly learned that they really sound full and handle most bass well (especially proximity effect of vocal mics). I use a Shure SM58 for vocals, a SM57 to mike the acoustic guitar, and then run the electronics of the acoustic through a chain of Fishman stereo acoustic effects through the 1/4" jack stereo inputs of the compact mixer. It sounds absolutely wonderful! At home, I like to jam and record with my electric guitars, and I'm here to say that this little PA also works great at low to moderate volumes with amp simulations and multi-effects pedals. I own a Digitec RP500 and the Stagepas' clean output really compliments the pedal. It also works well with my keyboard. There's little to no hum, buzz, or distortion, which I think is the key to this powerful little system and its sound. I also thought the two-band (as opposed to three-band) equalization of each channel would be a problem, but as I discovered, the sound-shaping capabilities and simplicity was surprisingly good. Finally, I am elated at how easy the Stagepas is to move around and set up. The optional case is a nice accessory to the system, as is the microphone stand adapter for the mixer. The Stagepas even has a direct out for a powered monitor. The system is very sturdy and well-built. All in all, a compact, clean-sounding versatile sound solution that suits almost all my needs. Several friends commented at one gig that it sounded better than the Bose tower PA used by the guy before me. To me, it's the best compact PA system out there. I'm satisfied and hope to get some years of satisfaction out of it.

    These speakers sound great, no two ways about it. Reasonably loud and full, far more bass than I expected, decently balanced. It's not even all that painful that you only have two bands of EQ, cause the speakers just sound really nice by themselves.The onboard reverb really is a joke. It's like someone's bad audio processing programming excercise... not even a reverb, technically just the lamest tick-tick-tick delay you can imagine. You'll get more "reverb" from the sound of the small room you're probably using these in. T I can't imagine why Yamaha didn't throw in a better reverb (even the Nady PA we use has a nicer delay) when Behringer packs almost their entire Virtualizer fx unit into their mixers.The mixer you get here offers no aux or effects send - and the reverb is unusable. You can use the monitor ("Powered Speaker") or tape out from the mixer to an external fx box, and route it back in to one of the stereo channels for a decent outboard reverb, but... this thing is supposed to be making things simpler. I wouldn't mind the extra box of rack mount gear to hold the Virtualizer (I already own the stuff, may as well use it) but I am annoyed that I can't properly use the exciter that's sharing rack space with it.It's all about the options. This setup does something very limited rather well... but you have no room at all to grow.I'm tempted to return it and buy one really nice Mackie powered speaker and save up gig money for the second Mackie... and then a third for a monitor. I've got an old Behringer mixer sitting around... and that thing has many times the features of the little mixer you get with this setup.

    Comments about Yamaha STAGEPAS 300 Portable PA System:

    I have not used this system out more than a couple of times. There are two major problems. The first, as everyone else had mentioned. is the garbage reverb. It is totally useless. The second, and connected to the first problem is there are no inputs to connect any out side effects,(such as a good verb unit).Yes you can run it in line for one channel, but not for the whole system. As far as I'm concerned, this is only a toy system.

        Comments about Yamaha STAGEPAS 300 Portable PA System:

        The sound is clear with a fatter low end than you would expect for such small speakers, especially if you use both speakers. I often use just one, though and it's great for small groups. Like others, the reverb is next to useless (except for Elvis impressions). It's a slap-back style with only the master knob. It's either on or off at each channel. Why such a useless effect, when great multi-effect circuits are easy to include?

          Remarkably fat sound for such small speakers. I don't need reverb in most cases, but the lame, almost weird, slap-back reverb is really sad. There's no effects insert, so I'm still working on a work-around for that.

          This is a simple system, great for a small act. Only cons I've run across are that the reverb is not very full and is a little on the tinny side, and the speakers don't mount on standard pole/type speaker stands.

            I didn't trust off-brand products so this Yamaha unit, at the same price as the no-names, wasn't a tough choice. Very compact, nice layout, good sound. It won't blow the doors out but it's all I need.

            This is a followup to my original review...I used this on a gig last week, in a school gymnasium that had a stage and doubled as an auditorium...my guitar bag has backpack straps, so I carried my guitar on my back, and one speaker in each hand...my assistant carried my mic stand and bag of essentials...I was set up and playing in less than 10 minutes...the sound was great and more than adequate for the room...take down was even easier...no more multiple trip to the car...I hit a home run with the Stagepas 300...

            I have this unit, if you hit a high note on your classical guitar it clips very easily and cuts off.the reverd sound more like a delay. don't play this unit in a loud crown you will bust your speakers (I already did). I'm sorry but my system is now in storage.
