Customers have a choice of two front-end configurations. The PM5D includes 48 XLR analog mono inputs and balanced TRS insert I/O’s with manual mic preamps based on the circuitry found in the Yamaha DM2000, plus an additional 4 stereo line level inputs. The PM5D-RH includes 48 XLR analog mono inputs with recallable mic preamps derived from the head amplifier design of the Yamaha PM5000, with 4 stereo inputs that will accept mic level signals. The choice will depend on you needs and budget, and whether you need to store and recall the analog gain settings in the same way as other parameters. Whichever model you choose, you are assured of the best sound quality available. Both superb mic preamps convey the most delicate nuances of the input signal right down to the smallest details. The DM2000 mic pre-amps are highly regarded for their warm, transparent sound, while the PM5000 mic preamps have a warmth and boldness specifically designed for live sound.
