DIDJIO's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Small but tough"

LD Systems DAVE 8 Roadie
I use Dave roady from 8 December 2013 I appreciate its compact maneuverability and simple but robust construction.; Having replaced the tissue racks dave XS 8 by metal grilles is a good thing and better protects HP. The system is distinguished by the cleanliness of the refund in the medium range acute (perhaps due to the provision Appolito's HP). Just to add sound track very correct with 80 people and if you do not want to overwrite an entire room. I used background music for cocktails, openings, small lounge bar prestas The bottom of the spectrum is present despite a small subwoofer that has at least the advantage of being handled by one person. I listened to a HK Lucas smart system, a power works but the sound was much more confused and less accurate in the upper spectrum. More when I saw the price compared to the quality of the product there are no photos. In short, I do it again this choice without hesitation if I had to stay on the small size benefits. Otherwise, I tried a very convincing but at the price Montarbo system also ... we are not on the same port ...!

LD Systems DAVE 8 Roadie

Rating: 9/10

I'm not an avid writer.

Already equipped with sound equipment (PRO) but in another area, I was looking for a compact system for animating small meetings kinds birthday, Garden Party ... inside and outside (the Paris region). therefore easy to store in a corner of my basement and transported in the trunk of a 207 .... purchased online web well known German website.
I hesitated a lot before clicking the button because I had not had the opportunity to listen before and touch (but good knowing that the return was free ...) I took the risk and I'm HAPPY :-)

the Pros:

- Finish is clean, well finished, beautiful painting.
- Easy to move, comfortable grip
- The weight (not too heavy) so alone it's great.
- No fan makes noise (used in 80% it is hot but no worries).
- SOUND .... It's clean very clean, nice midrange treble balance is not garish not aggressive ... I love, and this system can be widely used to make monitor with a small Egalo to rigor for fussy.
- Side box, it works well, it's clean, perfect for ears 7-77 years, although I would not go to a Rave Party with ... If need more sound pressure at the bottom of the spectrum, I think adding a small active subwoofer can be the solution. but the goal was not to my eardrums with the lower spectrum explode, and then I wanted a compact system :-)
- TOP + mini table integrated mixer that connects ALL types of sources, even the mini jack, RCA, asymmetrical, symmetrical .... MICRO guitar ..... ideal for connecting a PC with its dock "DJ" to host a private party. for a small training field + guitar + keyboard .... it's just perfect (see photo). the only "fault" there is no power supply for the Phantom Mic .... (Hmmmm there is no need SM58!)

- Level settings (general + Sub level), quality knobs, the phase inverter of Sub is easy to adjust and quickly forgotten during the evening.

- Listed background noise, it is far, far away .... far more than I thought.


- Thomann quality cables supplied with the kit .... but hey I could make them myself but I did not want to leave the soldering iron ...

- The quality of the cover that is disjointed the first time I used it, and I'm not a "nag". but good at 3am when to store equipment, it has to be strong still a little bit thomann. good to say that sometimes I have no luck. Otherwise integrated casters the cover is handy.

- For the rest .... I'm still looking.

So to conclude,

You need a small system to make small anims (70 people) in a living area 200m ² average max .... Yes it works perfectly.

Need a bit of sound to accompany you on vocals and instruments in a Parisian cafe ... YES

Teen dancing in your living room of 50m ² or your Parisian apartment and share it with neighbors: YES

Do not bother with the son amps and can connect your PC, DJ mixer, a microphone a guitar: YES

Amplified for your electronic drum return: YES

BIGBASS a multimedia system to connect to your PC Gamer and immerse yourself in the sound environment of GTA! : YES

A film session outdoors? : YES

I share with them: NO :-)

I'm happy: YES

I would do this choice: YES

I regret not having bought a HK Nano: NO not at all, I listened to a show room :-) I prefer the Roady which is more cheaper ....

LD Systems DAVE 8 Roadie
I use it for over 2 years. I had several systems before, and this is the one that brings me the best weight / price / sound quality.
Treble clarity, precision serious despite the "small" box and lack of aggression in the media are really at much more expensive systems.
We can criticize a lack of power, but it is very well protected, and when it exceeds its capacity, the electronic protection reminds us to order (it is better to push the general console and reduce the master chamber, thereby avoiding an unpleasant saturation)
I voiced for a small band without a drummer, a room of 200 people without any difficulty.
Small problem: the painting is good but no protection, and reinforced corners are coming avoid shocks or scratches (acute tissue grids are held by velcro best avoided manipulate because of their lightness).
I would do without hesitation that choice
