How long have you been using it?
Six months for rehearsals (once a week) and live gigs.
Which feature do you like the most / the least?
I was fed up with having to transport an amp + an effect processor + an EQ every time I played. So I looked for a compact system with the best value for money on the market. I didn't take any risk thinking that if it was disappointing I would keep it for rehearsals and buy a better non-amplified one (Mackie).
Everything went fine the first live gig, just like in rehearsals. Having two integrated multi-effect modules is a nice thing and they sound ok. For FOH we used two EV SX300 and for monitoring two active RCF ART 310A. A professional musician who played with me said we were lucky. We have a trio and we had less than an hour to do the sound check. My friend said we did pretty good in record time but we could've gotten a better sound with a bit more time. The output power was enough for the 250-person hall and the small EQ did a good job.
Cons: perhaps the weight and the faders, which seem a bit fragile.
Did you try any of other models before buying this one?
Yes, my friend who is a pro has a small amplified Laney. But let me make something clear, you must have a good hearing to be able to compare and hear any difference.
How would you rate its value for money?
It's excellent right now, but time will tell...
Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?
Yes but if you want to get a good sound quality with such a mixer you must have high-quality speakers.
In the worse case you'll have to add an EQ to the system. I recommend it to beginners and experienced musicians. But always use it with high-quality speakers (that's the most important thing)

- Overall Opinion
- I just bought this power mixer and intended exclusively for the live.
I have been testing in my home studio (compared with 01V and DDX3216) before using them in live condition with a pair of Peavey ES15:
- Excellent (tested on home and NS10M precisison 8D Tannoy TS subwoofer + 10). No breath. I must say that the option of low-frequency cutoff for the various noise is effective.
- Simple handling and facile.Mode job in French.
- 3 D effect that embellishes good sound (be careful not to abuse it too much anyway)
- Ability to output Bridger
- And the faders! Unbearable for the settings to end these powered mixers buttons.
Little least from my point of view: the effects - lack a reverb type for the voice training that can be found on the DDX3216 the same manufacturer. But hey at this price, especially since every little benefit from two different effects.
No compressor: Need my point of view to put an insert to avoid the well-known problems of singing masked by the instruments or conversely saturating in the phases of anger ... This is to my knowledge, this range of compressors are not legion.
In summary a good little power mixer with no fewer than 20 entries! There's plenty to do. In short at this price nothing to say.
