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)
