Best PA for the Money?

I know Lonman recommended using a Yamaha MG124CX board, and I've got that on my list.

But, I just came across this Yamaha PA system (2 speakers and a mixing board) at http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/StagePas600i for $899

Is this considered a good system, or would I do better to get the Yamaha MG124CX and then buy some speakers separately?

What I liked about the StagePas 600i system is that it claims to have the ability to prevent feedback. Is this claim a reality?

And, if getting a Yamaha board... would it be better to get Yamaha speakers? Just curious if having the same brand of electronics is better since the manufacturer's claim their components work best with their other components.

Re: Best PA for the Money?

Depends on your needs and future plans. If this is just for a small room, it may be all you need. If you want to use it in larger rooms or outside, it's going to be pretty small and thin sounding.

The feedback suppressor built in is only going to be good as your initial gain structure, speaker placement & mic techniques. You have a good solid setup with these last 3, you shouldn't get feedback anyway.
You can always add a nice eq later (my preference over a feedback eliminator - which you can also add later if you want). I am also not big on the 1 knob overall system eq. That reminds me of the tone control on an AM radio.
If it were me, the board I mentioned and a couple decent speakers are going to run about the same (maybe a little more) than that Stagepass.

OK, after reading up on that board I was leaning towards getting it since it does have good reviews and seems to be good quality.

Think it's be a good idea to use Yamaha speakers along with the Yamaha board? Or does using like branded components together make much difference?

Doesn't much matter. I prefer Peavey, EV or QSC speakers myself. But they are a lot more money.
