sw80's review"well made"

Yamaha MG82CX
If you are in search of an affordable mixer then the Yamaha MG82cx will suit you fine. It has 8 channels all in stereo and phantom powered mic inputs for your condensers. With built in SPX effects and the channels also have built in compression and EQ you will be able to get the sound you want and need very quick. The price of the MG82cx is less than 200.00 dollars. For a unit with these type of effects and built as good as it is I wouldn’t be surprised if it was almost 400.00 dollars!


The Yamaha MG82cx is a very good sounding unit. It is very quiet and does not generate any noise. All of the effects are very good, clear and clean. This unit is very portable and light, it can be taken with you or moved from location to location pretty quick and painlessly.


It has 8 channels 2 XLR mic preamps, 6 ¼ stereo inputs. This unit does not connect or interact with your computer. It is very light and portable.


The MG82cx works well and it’s a well constructed mixer. I was using this mixer for a small set up for almost a year and never had any issues with it. It is easy to understand and start using right out of the box. It is actually better than a lot of other mixers that are in its price range. You can purchase it in blue or in black. All of the knobs are well built and have a nice resistance to them. The one knob compressor on the MG82cx is my favorite feature that it has. My least part about this mixer is that I wish it had some sort of computer connectivity for transferring files to the DAW. But even without the connectivity to a computer the mixer is still very good, and it is very dependable. You will not have to worry about it not working or falling apart on you.

yoTrakkz's review"Great mixer for all"

Yamaha MG82CX
The Yamaha MG82cx is a powerful mixer. It has 16 effects that are clear and very crisp. I have got no hum or buzz with this mixer at all. If you are creating music at home this will go perfect in your computer set up!


The size and weight is ideal. I don't know about the big bulky AC transformer though. I pair this with a Crown XLS1500 at 300W @ 8 Ohm and power two EV SX300E killer cabinets and it's all I need to sound great. The key here is to be sure you have the best equipment for your job, just as a mechanic does. Junk equipment makes you sound like a junk performer. For quick setups and transportation and for the amount of plugins I need, this mixer does it all. I would have preferred sliders instead of knobs, and perhaps better reverb effects, but that’s my own preference.


Sounds great because I engage the 80hz high pass filter to help eliminate rumble (vocal mics only in my case remember). Now that I have this setup, when I want I can incorporate my Ovation Custom Legend onstage without 'having to' buy an acoustic guitar amp as I have more channels left in the board


Overall, The thing I like most about this full featured mixer is that it is most likely the lightest of all 8 Channel Mixers. Lets face it, in this price range your not buying a lot of new technology. With Yamaha you will get rock solid reliability (as long as your not abusive) and the basic features you need. With all the other stuff that I haul around to do my thing every ounce of weight counts - electronics of this nature do not need to be heavy, just reliable and this one fills that bill for me. I think it is priced a little high for what it is but hey, people are paying it so must be worth it?

garabed02's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Impeccable"

Yamaha MG82CX
Caractéristiquse very good for a small portable mixer (I said it is not amplified). Its 8 tracks are ample that it is in the studio, or "small" live.


Use child! One branch, is regulated and that's all.


Effective equalizer, there was even a compressor for microphones and phantom power. It hardly brought any breath for an analog table.


I use about 5 years.

What I like:

- Lightweight and compact
- Powerful
- His own
- Effects
- Heats very intensive use can

What I like moin:

Food that is not standard (I intend to keep it very long).

In short, I can only advise.

brachioo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" incredible!"

Yamaha MG82CX
No usb, very simple to connect! I use several config with two that I like:

In / Out to USB audio interface.
PC (Transmission pace, sequence) in the input 7/8 and Out RCA to my 4-track cassette.


Super simple.


Not see very little breath, I use a microphone audiotecnica who takes his amp in the same room, its clean!


yes I had a mackie onyx masi it was bcp too much for me, I sold it and I took the one I do not regret ...

I removed 2 points for PAN function does not work when activating effects on the track ...

skeby's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good value for money"

Yamaha MG82CX
For features nothing new


The general configuration is simple?
The setup is intuitive even for novices (like me)
The manual is clear and sufficient?
The manual explains the simple to the detail, it is very comprehensive and gives examples of connection.


The console is transparent?
I find it quite clear before I had a line6 UX2 soundcard and I think the sound is better since.

She introduced the breath?
Very little is understood a little when we increase the gain for normal use but it is virtually nonexistent


For how long have you been using it?
Since 4months now

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
This is my first mixer until such time I had a line6 UX2 Sound Card

What thing do you like most/least about it?
The more positive about this mixer is its value for money and ease of handling.
The downside for me come from internal preamps, I preferred to more good things for the preamp voices.

What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Very good I really hesitated with several other table, but this one delighted me

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
yes I would do it again without hesitation for a first mixer for people who have little means (with 2000 € I would have taken another) ^ ^

Remember I'm an amateur novice on the choice of material so my opinion does not carry much weight.

Standard use, you plug, you put an effect on your track and you go out on your stereo speakers or your headphones.


- No breath.
- Robust


- Compact and good quality
- Practical effects (chorus, reverb, etc. ...)
- Value for money unbeatable.

Yes I do it again this election easily.

see above
rich connections to a compact table!
while adequate for a basic config domestic use, small group ...


clear instructions as required in the absence of concept of using a table to see http://www.radios-fr.com/comprendre-utiliser-cabler-une-table-t2598.html!

trs intuitive and easy to take in hand


trs good sound quality for this price: j'tais really tonn of the dynamics of sound, the breath away when rglages good (easy here), the image stro .. . the quality of its short
effects in all except the distortion trs good that I was not at all convinced (plutt introductory noise than saturation)
RAS also


APRS have shopped a compact table, reasonable price and good quality sound-technique, I am fully satisfied after a month!

compact lgre fully satisfactory if you need a number of ways!
trs good value quality - price!
As always try to estimate their needs in terms of number of entries, registration, moni, effects ... before buying a table.

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

Yamaha MG82CX
Table 8-channel mixer with digital effects
2 mono channels with inserts and compressor input + XLR Jack 6.35 (lanes 1 and 2), 2-channel stereo input jack + XLR 6.35 (lanes 3 / 4 and 5 / 6), a stereo channel input jack 6.35 + RCA (Channel 7 / 8).
Gain control knob on channel 1, 2, 3 / 4 and 5 / 6. All channels have a knob for tone control High / Medium / Low except tracks 7 / 8 with only two knobs High / Low.
Channels 1 and 2 plus an adjustment knob compression.
Inserra possibility of external effects on the console with the input jack 6.35, can also go out to a recorder (cinch) or connect an MP3 player or other (via RCA plugs).
16 selector positions to select one of the internal effects to the table. Intensity of the selected adjustable using a knob. (Beyond adjusting the dose of the effect on each channel, one can modulate the magnitude of the effect, for example the amplitude of a reverb or distortion of the (yes There's a distortion! ))
Also possible to have a +48 V phantom power supply of the XLR.
Each tract also has a switchable filter to remove low frequencies (<80Hz)
Headphone set in addition to the MAIN OUTPUT and CONTROL ROOM.


French manual YAMAHA available on the site. Clear and concise, with wiring diagram in the end pages for a more enlightened view of the interconnection.
Operation is very simple and requires no non-stop dive ds documentation.


Sounds tip-top. No breath, except perhaps with the gain in depth, but really nothing to say.
The effects are realistic, simple and easy to use. I think 16 effects are appropriate and sufficient for the job I do)


I swapped a Behringer UB1002FX MG82CX against this and really it is day and night. UB1002FX frankly it's shit compared to the Yamaha.
Simple, indeed quite appropriate, sound instruments (Olympia OD10SCE, AEX500 Yamaha, Taylor 314CE) fully restored, well defined sound, no breath.

I really recommend the purchase even if it seems to have invested in a Tupperware box as it is "plastic".
I think you just have to be careful because it does not seem very robust .. To see ...

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

Yamaha MG82CX
All I can say that is that I 'm really happy.
I plug in my top two keyboards, my turntables and cassette players;
j 'record by connecting over my Zoom H2, I have also plugged my sound card.
Output I have four branch speakers: 2 of 2 monotoring and multimedia.
I'm using a few effects to me more than enough (especially reverbs).
No problem connecting virtually any high-volume same breath.
The reproduced sound quality is brilliant.
I do not regret my purchase because the price-quality ratio is really good: frank 166 Euros for this machine, it was worth the money.


Installation very easy


No breath
j 'rarely uses the qualiseur, the central position for me.


Used for 3 months
Before I have used Berhinger (I 'm not AIM)
Phonic (I have well liked)
Yes I would do this choice
