mrjason's review"Affordable solution for analog systems"

Yamaha MG102C
The Yamaha MG102c is one of the most affordable analog mixers that you can get today. It has a 3 band EQ on channels 1-2 and a 2 band EQ on channels 7, 9 and 9/10. There is one auxiliary send but it has no busses. This mixer is small and compact, it cannot be racked but that is ok because it does not take up much desktop space at all.

UTILIZATION

Setting this mixer up is very easy because it really has nothing to do with your computer because it is analog, so that makes it plug and play. There is phantom power on a few channels and it has all of the inputs and outputs that you need for your small set up (inputs: 2 ¼ and 4 ¼ plus 2 RCA, outputs: 2 ¼ for your monitors and 2 RCA for recording).

SOUNDS

The sound is decent for the money, you will get no hissing and if you are using a good quality microphone with this Yamaha MG102c then your quality will be pretty solid. But if you stick to using cheap microphones then it will not be very good. So it will all depend on what kind of microphone you choose to use with it.

OVERALL OPINION

I have used this mixer many times and have had it for many years. Though my set up is not so much analog anymore I still find uses for it. I would be nice if there were a few effects on it, the only type of effect it has built in is a compressor which is pretty good for this to only be a 100 dollar unit. There is no talk back function on it, but it gives you a total of 10 analog channels to work with. Though I purchased this a long time ago, I would still purchase it again if I was in the market to buy a analog mixer. I have used plenty of Yamaha’s analog mixers and this is the most affordable one that they make and it is very similar to the MG82CX.

no breath either, if you have a strong enough source.
very nice for a small correction before convertos but forgotten compressor are using the voice ... (only instruments).

stratoscott's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Sufficient"

Yamaha MG102C
See the sites of VPC or the Yamaha.

UTILIZATION

Lets me do what I bought it (family celebrations, small rehearsing with friends)
I can plug in, two microphones (Sennheiser FP35 and E840), a keyboard, a guitar amp and two PCs.
Fairly simple to use, instructions needed for a few small points such as the use of filters or compressors.

SOUNDS

I did not see any blows to the headphone.
The equalization of the channels is effective but lacks some of the medium.
The settings are generally effective

OVERALL OPINION

More than a year of use in different configurations (animation group) and no complaints, the adaptation is transparent.
Very good for amateur use.
Only regret, rotary faders instead of linear.
I certainly spend a MG124C CX or one day.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha MG102C
It is a small mixer fader without there anything that need to allocate different sources of order, the XLR mic inputs (4) neutrik with phantom power supply, a small compressor on input 1 & 2 (nice). Line of connectors, to, etc.. For details see data sheet on the net.

It's analog. The equalizer is like its predecessor (MG 10 / 2) carricatural enough, you can make small corrections, but I personally do not touch it too.
The weight is smaller than on the old MG (I have one too). Personally I find the appearance of the former much better: better quality pots, apparent robustness, reassuring weight ... There, Yamaha has a lot of humor in the instructions and packaging, are praised for easing the weight of the mixer (easily transportable), my eye! That's it more plastic.

The connectors are of good quality, it's serious though! I do not like Yamaha products, however I only have these mixers from home, but I think in this category are the tables that have the most "mouth".

UTILIZATION

Archi easy to use, no need to record (unless it's your first), I flew over the record out of curiosity, she looks well done.
All tmobe on hand is a good audio Swiss Army knife.

SOUNDS

I find it more transparent, the breath appears only if you really looking for trouble. Side preamps I am pleasantly surprised because I thought the old MG really feeble, there is generous enough, it sounds really good (for 139 euros which is great).

The equliseur should be used with great moderation, he obviously has no parameters (that is minimal). Anyway, it's more a tool to route the audio sources to the sound. If the sources are good, the sound is good, this table will not make your sound.

The compressor is a pleasant surprise, he gave the potato to the vote, it is discreet and simple (one button).

OVERALL OPINION

I use the MG 10 / 2 (old version) for 4 years, I found it helpful but very banal and feeble in dynamics, I just get the new (MG 102C) to route the output of my sound card and my preamps in rehearsal, connect a microphone on the sound system, etc..

The pros: the price / quality ratio, the preamps that are neutral and efficient connectivity, the look, the little analog compressor.

The -: materials more "cheap" than the previous version, the bar graph that is slow to relax, the almost decorative EQ

I hesitated between the Blend 6 Alesis Multimix and a small Mackie, I did not take a Yamaha, and finally it's a good surprise, the product has actually been improved (except for the appearance of materials).

Very good value for money (the price of a guitar pedal!)
