Omnitronic CS 406
Here is the description in English. No need to be an expert in the language of Shakespeare to understand it is a Powermix (table amplified) with 6 XLR microphone input and a potato in the 2x200Watts rms 4ohms. Speakon speaker outputs, class! There is a clone of the console in EBS, but with output jack.
Powered mixer combo
Low noise 6 channel Mic / Line-mixer
6 mono inputs with XLR-sockets, +48 V Phantom-power and balanced line inputs
Integrated echo
2-band EQ for all inputs
Peak-LED per mono input
Aux-Send per channel for controlling external effectors
Aux-Return with balanced ¼ "jack socket
Separate Main Mix and headphones outputs
Tape inputs and outputs
7-band equalizer for fine-tuned sound-
Precise 5-LED meter
Output power 2 x 200 W / 4 Ohms

Finally: the good little cheap stuff made in China and bought in Germany at Music-Town (229 euros) at the time). Unbeatable.

IT CAN BE USED I almost 2 years with my band. Already with two 8ohm speakers (2x100W) and now 4 ('in parallel 2 by 2) to harness the power. At first we were almost to the cleat (8 / 10) and often we reach the level of clip. On a micro low-end sound distorting. Since we play at 6 / 10 almost without clip
and with a sound much better. So for noisy groups, adopt the config 'with 4 speakers in 8ohms (or 2 large as 4ohms).

The settings are simple and seems fairly robust. Too bad there's only one handle. The onboard effects are basic, but at this price is quite accurate.
Added: I return to what I wrote. The CS406 is a "pop" and function amp does not work anymore! Benefits of VPC German: Post (with move!) Practice of exorbitant fees to Germany. So the return is made under warranty for about 1 / 4 the price of the beast (about € 50). A happiness never comes alone.

In conclusion: Omnitronic is the entry level moderately robust. Interesting but not great.
I added a layer: the thingy was not working but the SAV Omnitronic claims to have found nothing defective and send me back the camera. On the way back it was clearly open (the box is damaged and screws are badly screwed back). And strangely enough it works. I lost my Latin (and my German). What a mess has taken place or at home Omnitronic Music Town? Well, it works, but until when?
Conclusion: if you buy the cheap but reliable

. Avoid-Town Music
. Omnitronic avoid. Prefer Berhinger example.
I add one more layer:

I compared to a similar product from home Peavey (2x200W RMS also). Nothing to do. Amplification Peavey is far more serious. The bass is more present and more defined highs (with the same speakers).

As against this type of stuff, the quality of speakers is a lot. The CS406 sends much of her when connected to two 4 ohms speakers equipped with an HP 15-inch series of Peavey ST for example.
