    Yamaha Stagepas 400i - "Versatile!"

    09/21/14

    I bought it last year and use it for small events. Its main strength is, without a doubt, its ease of use, its almost plug'n'play! It has two XLR inputs, two 1/4" jack/XLR inputs (including one with a Hi-Z button) and two Line Inputs, one on RCA …

    Yamaha Stagepas 400i - "Good product for "acoustic" sets"

    07/12/14

    I bought the stagepas for a very specific application: To reinforce a small acoustic combo (piano - guitar - vocals). The stagepas 400i is perfect for this application! The vocals are rendered very well, the piano and the guitar are reproduced with a…

    Yamaha Stagepas 400i - "400 watts on paper"

    02/08/14

    On paper, 400 watts into 4 ohms! It's obviously "dynamic." An exotic output power. In fact, it's rated at 125 watts before clipping (with 1% THD, 1khz @ 1W) per channel into the same impedance (percentage of the 3rd harmonic with respect to the root …

    Yamaha Stagepas 400i - "Good but..."

    08/20/13

    There's always a but... in this case it's the sound the amp's cooling fans make! It's useless in "quiet" environments, which is a pity (it seems to be a chronic issue with all stagepasses). It's OK for bars. It has the typical Yamaha sound: The mid…

    Yamaha EMX640 - "A workhorse among powered mixers"

    05/07/13

    I bought it in 1999 (yes, last century) for small venues. It was my first powered mixer and I still have it (in 2013): That says a lot about its longevity and sturdiness. I still rent it from time to time together with a couple of speakers and it d…

    Yamaha DXS15 - "Distortion at high volumes"

    01/24/13

    The Yamaha DXS15 is a 15 inch 600 watt active sub with a clean sounding low end bass at moderate volumes. If you start to really crank it up you will start to notice a little amount of distortion. It does have a high power class D amplifier and it is…

    Yamaha DXS12 - "Perfect for the mobile working DJ"

    01/24/13

    The Yamaha DXS12 is a 600 watt active subwoofer with a clean sound even at high volumes in mid-sized clubs and venues. I have worked with this sub on about 15 different occasions and the thing about it that fascinates me is that for this price you do…

    Yamaha SW118V - "Small shows"

    01/24/13

    The Yamaha SW118V is a 18 inch Passive Subwoofer, and a lot of the time when I am doing a smaller show as a DJ I will just take this. This was my “Go To” sub for smaller birthday parties and banquets manly because it was very light and easy to take w…
