From the Manufacturer

Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer

The MG102C is an ideal mixer for basic music production or live sound applications that require high sound quality from a relatively small number of input sources. While remarkably compact and lightweight, no compromises have been made in sound quality. It even has built-in channel compressors that, although easy to operate, can significantly enhance the quality of your mixes. An optional adaptor allows mounting on a microphone stand for easy access and convenient positioning on stage.

Compressors

Flexible 8 or 10 Input Channel Configurations

The MG102C has a total of 10 input channels comprised of two mono microphone/line channels and four stereo line channels. Two of the stereo channel can be used as mono microphone inputs, providing a total of four microphone inputs when necessary. Gain trim covers a wide -60dB ~ -16dB range for microphone input, and -34dB ~ +10dB for line input.

Comprehensive, Easy-access Connector Panel

Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and re-patching your system quick and easy. Featuring high-quality Neutrik balanced XLR connectors on both mono microphone/line channels and two of the stereo channels. The XLR-equipped stereo channels can accept mono microphone input either via the XLR or phone jack connectors. The remaining stereo channel on the MG82CX provide phone jack and pin jack connectors for compatibility with a wide range of sources. The two mono input channels also feature insert I/O connectors that let you patch external signal processing gear into those channels as required. Separate pin-jack 2TR inputs are provided to accept the output from a CD player or similar stereo source.

Four 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. All four microphone preamps also feature switchable phantom power so you can take advantage of the natural, extended response of high quality condenser microphones. A single switch turns phantom power on or off for all four channels.

Built-in Channel Compressors

This advanced feature can be a tremendous advantage in achieving great vocal sound. It can also be used 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 MG102C you have Yamaha's innovative one-knob compression feature on mono input channels 1 and 2. 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.

3-band Channel EQ and High-pass Filter

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, and you reap the benefits in the MG-series mixers. On the MG102C, Channels 1, 2, 3/4, and 5/6 feature full 3-band equalizers with LOW, MID, and HIGH controls, while channel 7/8 and 9/10 have 2-band EQ for smooth equalization of stereo sources.

I do an internet radio show and this was the perfect piece for my semi-portable studio. It is small enough to stash in a gear bag, has all the right inputs/outputs, and is user friendly. The phantom power works great with crystal clear feed back. I do a one man show and this thing works great for me, especially for one handed operation.

This mixer is excellent. It's the best in it's price range, offering more features than any other under $200 I have tried. You have to spend twice as much (or more) to get to the next level. Yamaha has always done a good job with their electronics, and this one is no exception. Don't hesitate - you'll like it!

I paid 30% more for this 2 years ago, and it has never failed me. From small stage live to even the built in effects, this is a must for any single or duo act. It works perfect as a small karaoke mixer as well. I'm amazed the price has gotten so low. The only thing I'd like to see is a USB port for recording. Yamaha MG102C 10 Input Stereo Mixer

I've had the MG102C for 1 year now, mostly supporting cabaret performances and PA applications at small and medium sized events of 100 - 300 persons, a fair amount of which are church or charity events where I provide the sound service discounted or for free. This little Yamaha always delivers good, clear, low-noise sound on cue even though I generally use medium-range mics with it (I also have a 20 channel mixer and higher grade mics for larger, more critical applications). It may not be the most full-featured unit ever, but it certainly has all you really need for good quality mic mixing sound including, by channel, 3-tier EQ, pan, gain, compression and low filter. In addition to the 4 main mic inputs (XLR or 1/4inch), there are 2 further stereo channels for external line/music RCA input and mixing eg CD players, music streamers etc, which are also EQ'd (2-tier) and sound fine. Add to that, +48V phantom power, headphone & monitor mix out, range of inserts and sends etc, and you really do have all you need, probably more than, for a really good basic set-up. My only minor quible is I would have preferred XLR master outputs rather than 1/4 inch output jacks, even though they are balanced, for easier compatibility with my range of cables - I've had to invest in cables with 1/4" connectors because simply puting 1/4 inch adapters on my XLR connectors introduced hum and noise. All-in-all, a fine product for the price

I got the mixer not knowing what it would really do, I've never tinkered with one. As soon as I got it I set up and tested the compression. I began by whispering and then I screamed through my Nady condenser, it compressed it well. Next I miced my acoustic guitar and screwed around to get the tone I wanted. Sure enough the pre-amps are on point and it created room for the sound to breathe. Good stuff!

The construction of this piece is great, it is metal and the power chord screws in. it provides very low noise and has some handy features such as compression and broad eq that do a good job when you may need them like in live situtations. phantom power works well and it doesn't heat up like crazy as other mixers with integrated phantom power do. the high pass filter is a must have feature for any mixer and this one has just that. it is just plain awesome and better than the other cheap berhinger mixer that runs at the same price but lacks this MG102c's quality

I use this mixer in combination with my Computer, M3-88 keyboard, vocal mic, mbox, protools and iPod. I output to studio monitors which I also use as my computer speakers... This is the ultimate piece of equipment to patch together all your odds and ends.. Typical Yamaha quality... I love it.

The mixer works as promised. I use it at home for some Karaoke fun. We have 2 microphones, karaoke music input from our laptop and input going to speakers via a home theater receiver. It works pretty well. Very happy with the quality, especially for the price.
