Yamaha STAGEPAS 300 portable PA system was especially engineered to provide solution to smaller performances of presenters, performers, musicians and speakers while making it look professional and with high fidelity.
This Yamaha PA system features two amplifiers with 150 watts of digital power and completing the system are two passive loudspeakers. The one loudspeaker has an accessory compartment for neatly storing the speaker cables and other accessories. It has EQ or tone controls and digital reverb onboard the mixer.
The Yamaha STAGEPAS 300 was Yamaha’s first offering in compact portable PA sound system line. Its mixer has 8 total inputs in which 4 are mono inputs for microphone or line level instruments and two are stereo inputs for stereo sources such as CD players or keyboards.
To assure high-fidelity sound, the loudspeaker systems have 8-inch long travel woofer and 1-inch Titanium high frequency driver. The loud speakers need external brackets for adapting for tripod use, yet these loudspeakers with their brackets can fit conveniently into the travel case.
Yamaha STAGEPAS 300 Portable PA System Reviews
Most buyers appreciate this product and commented that this PA sound system is a great product. If you think acoustic music in small to perhaps 1,200-square foot sized venues, then you’ll have an idea where this Yamaha portable PA system is a very strong contender and good value to boot.
Other applications, especially those employing larger ensembles, electric instruments, or high-decibel levels in large spaces deserve beefier gear in order not to disappoint.
The build quality is very good for an inexpensive PA sound system and if the needs increase, this set up is extremely easy to upgrade or expand without becoming at all obsolete.
More than anything else, the Yamaha Stagepas 300 Portable PA System sounds very good as Yamaha makes good mass market audio gear and the Stagepas has solid, smooth output. The electronics have a 20Hz-20kHz frequency response with reasonable specs.
The speakers are rated at 55Hz-20kHz and if you use good quality microphones and cables, this is probably what you get in terms of audible response. It’s quite good with very little audible distortion at moderate volume levels. The control box is elementary without a lot of bells and whistles but it was not designed to do so.
One reviewer sees the drawbacks on this Yamaha STAGEPAS 300 and noticed that it has weak reverb function with sometimes some noise feedback from the amplifier. Even a mediocre digital reverb would be fine but this sounds like a weird slap-back echo.
This portable sound system is not so usable for live music because the mic inputs provide no phantom power. If you’re going to sing with a band, you probably want some vocal processing. With this system you have a two-band low and high EQ and that’s it.
There’s no notch filter to reduce feedback and no low cut filter to reduce rumble or mic handling noise. When you go to sing along with a guitar amplifier you’ll miss the lack of compression and so mic technique becomes critical to maintain volume which is a problem with any powered mixer setups that don’t provide channel strip options like compression.
Yamaha PA sound system proves to most of its users that it has quality performance. At this price point, you get a very good basic system with a few nice features. The line out feature that allows users to plug in a computer to record events is very nice.
