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!


UTILIZATION

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


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 OPINION

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?
