I’m getting closer to putting my music room together and am in the process of picking out a decent PA for jams and band practice. I was wondering if anybody has any good or bad experience with the Yamaha MG16 or MG12 (not XU) analog mixers?
I plan on running it with two 12” Turbosound Milan powered PA speakers. This system is generally for vocalists.

I use the smaller MG10XU just for vocals and it works very well. The compression is a one knob deal, but it works better than no compression. I have dropped it in a padded bag on concrete and it still works perfectly. The effects are decent enough on the XU version and you can't really beat the price. Yamaha has never failed me in a gigging situation. Ever. You could gig with either of those boards, but the biggest plus for the MG16 is it has 4 monitor sends. IF you do gig with it, more monitor sends is always better than less, in my experience.
I've used Yamaha MG series mixers for a long time. They are a good mixer for the price. The pre amps are better than the comparable Mackie in my opinion (I have both). Our band has been using an MGP24FX for a couple years which is a great analog mixer. The MG series don't have much monitor flexibility.
Good stuff. I've never bought a piece of Yamaha gear and regretted it. The MG series mixers are as good or better than anything in their price range. That, of course is the key. You can get better stuff, but also pay more.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
