Yamaha MG06 Reviews

Compact and Full of Features

By Michael

Finally replaced my old Shure Brothers mixer from the 1970's with a modern one. The Shure Brothers was built well and is still in service somewhere but this new Yamaha is so loaded with features and handy connections it had to take center stage. I use it in my home studio to record radio skits. Just right for my purposes: clean sound, lots of controls and streamline design.

So nice to have a real mixer

Im just a garage band guy and have only owned a couple of toy mixers. So I cant give an expert review...But coming from the novice side. ...This is a huge step up in quality and usability from the $40 junk Ive been using.

I bought it for a microphone setup for streaming. I'm so glad I bought this mixer and it works well for just 100 dollars.

Very clean sounding small mixer

By Benjamin F.
Rated 5 out of 5

I'm in radio and, while COVID-19 is taking its course, I'm producing voice spots for automation upload in a converted bedroom closet voice-over booth. The small mixer I started with a couple months ago, a Mackie 402VLZ4, worked well enough amplifying my Aston Stealth mic, but the headphone section on that one refused to drive even the most efficient set of cans beyond a whisper. This was surprising, since that was never a problem with previous/larger Mackies I've owned. The station briefly loaned me some specialized equipment for remote live broadcasting experiments and included in that package was a Yamaha MG10 mixer. Not only did the mic pres sound great on that one, but I could actually hear myself clearly through the 'phones. So, I took a chance and ordered an MG06 for myself. I'm happy to report that the MG06 has the same excellent sound of the MG10 and, yes, the headphone section allows you to actually hear yourself - or whatever else you happen to be recording - loud and clear. When we get back to the point where live concerts are common again (I moonlight by making XY stereo recordings of chamber music for friends in nice acoustical spaces,) I'm anxious to hear what the MG06 will do there. The other criteria important to me is the ability to run my gear off battery power at times. While the larger MG10 needs 18VAC and would require an outboard inverter to go untethered, the smaller MG06 is 12VDC and can easily mate with any reasonably-sized lithium battery power bank. Phantom power on the MG06 is also, apparently, a full 48V. There much to like here in a clean-sounding and well-built package at a bargain price.

Great little mixer

I use it for videotaping when I need only a few mics or if I am getting a feed from the venue. It has enough features to make it flexible and the size makes it ideal for travel and set up. It has saved me many times when audio has been difficult.

Compact, solid build, convenient. Good sound. Independent headphone output, line outs and XLR outs. No complaints at all

Channel 2 on Phantom Power works intermittently

Rated 1 out of 5

Not recommended because purchased this for a project and as soon as we finally ready to launch the project- it had many problems on channel 2 using the phantom power. Now it is too late to return or fix this.

A very basic but good mixer

I needed a couple more phantom power inputs for another device, and this was the most cost effective way I could figure out to do it. Sound is clean, and it will be a useful addition to my sound kit for dealing with adjusting audio levels from other devices in the field.

Is this good enough to setup karaoke at home using either a smart tv or an old lcd tv with a receiver or any combo of these?
Asked by: Edgar
Yes, the Yamaha MG06 6-Input Mixer would work well for a karaoke scenario as described. The mixer could take two microphones plus an audio feed from a TV or receiver with an analog, line level audio output, and mix and send all signals out to a set of speakers.

how do I connect this mixer to another mixer?
Asked by: Anonymous
The outputs are XLR and 1/4 . The mixer you connect these outputs to must have the same connections for their inputs.

Assuming you meant RCA input. Use cables with 1/4 TRS on one end and RCA on the other.
