Yamaha MG166CX Mixing Console Reviews


Yamaha MG166CX

Bands playing in small venues that want compact PA rigs - say in the 3KW range - but demand a fully-featured sound.

And we\\\'ve all gone through working with the powered mixer amps that don\\\'t have the delivery grunt or monitoring flexibility; the smaller desks that deliver that \\\"head down the jet engine\\\" midrange and lugging in an overkill quantity of outboard gear to try to overcome the problems of your average small hall.

Well, this beastie fixes 90% of your issues in one lightweight package.

First things first : Out of the box, it\\\'s simple enough to operate that smaller bands or those that don\\\'t really want or need a dedicated techie can run it themselves with good results. And for once in a way, the manual\\\'s got some genuinely useful observations to add in too. But if you do want to add in some extras, then sensible features like the channel inserts and the flexible grouping help to make your job that much more straightforward.

Next up : Sound quality. In a word : lovely. It\\\'s warm, clear and rich and there\\\'s a heap of headroom in all the main control functions that means that you don\\\'t feel like you\\\'re pushing the thing to its limits every time.

So why only give it the 9/10 rating ? Two gripes : Having a channel inset on each of the main outputs would be icing on the cake and the onboard effects don\\\'t do the rest of the unit justice : The reverbs and delays are a shade sterile sounding compared to the great sound of the rest of the unit. But that\\\'s just me being greedy...

So, in a nutshell : If you want something for small venue work with limited lineups or if you\\\'re after a submixer for vocals or brass get hold of one of these and enjoy the ride...

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
