Hi, I'm actually using the Yamaha EMX5000 for a couple years and recently they do an upgrade to EMX5016 and i bought it for another set of sound system;unfortunately,it's easily to hit PEAK on the Master Meter!!!Not only that issue,i found that also came out with Cracking sound on the Vocal track. Anything wrong?or it isn't a good choice?or it's actually a Downgrade from EMX5000?huh... After a try on that,i decided to do an exchange to mackie CFX16,Much more better now...even c'ld handling loudness without Cracking and Peaking on Master Meter...What's the metter? Question, How do you choose a Mixer? what s'ld we considering? Do the amount on the Master Meter (+5 , -20) caused the Output signal? what's the meaning of signal on Master Meter ? stop at here.. Thanks and appreciate!!
