Value For Money : Excellent
What characteristics have motivated your choice?

The combo mixer / amp / hp all-in-one ergonomic carrying handle, the power / price and brand (manifested also in the price anyway ^ ^).
The types of available input, XLR, Jack 6.35 Mono / Stereo RCA Jack 3.5.

For what purpose?

We have 2 wired Stereo-Link associated with a PM-30 for sound to our rehearsal room for 2 guitars, bass, drums, vocals, keyboard, dj.


The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?

It seems to me, but I'm not an expert and the walls of our ... cava are not ideal in terms of acoustics.

The stereo image is good?

Very good.

The sound is clear and precise across the spectrum?

He better not exceed 3 / 4 on volume knobs because the breath comes and low frequencies are beginning to saturate the amplifier and spit HP which seems dangerous to the longevity of the CM-30 but nothing abnormal for my taste.

The dynamics are respected? ...

I think yes.


For how long have you been using it?

9 months

What thing do you like most/least about it?

I love power. As in other reviews a bit by pushing to its limits "to see" one wonders "only 30W?" !
Like the small cable ties inseparable from the power cable that is useful to make a proper wiring
I love design, small but sturdy
I like the ergonomics and its handle
I love the idea of ​​stereo and Stereo Link
Like entries in a mess (3 mixable and 2 assistants)

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

Marchal up the Fender and 25W, the Peavey Bandit 112 but this is not the same range, the sound-medal assholes galore and all kinds of hifi (Sony, JBL, Bose).

What is your opinion about the value for the price?


Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

Yes, and just to enjoy the stereo two CM-30 are worth much better than one.
