Martin Mania SCX500
(Originally written by Oskiki/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

- How long have you been using it?

1 month.

- Which feature do you like best?

Good brightness for 150 watts
Nice-looking housing
Very good quality.


No shutter
Bad dimmer.
- Did you try any other models before buying it?

No, these are my first scanners.

- How would you rate its value for money?

In spite of its weak points, the SCX 500 is a good scanner for beginners.

- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?

No, I would buy something from a higher product range (SCX 600 or 700).

Martin Mania SCX500
I use it since early September 2012.

I love all these features and I have absolutely no negatives to report.

I use two T-Rex Martin are great also but the effects are totally different.

Quality / price excellent.

I remake this choice with your eyes closed!

light man's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" SUPERB 500 sxc"

Martin Mania SCX500
I used to buy in very good condition (I was 4 in all), great product, I currently serve all day and well super reliable!! MARTIN LIVE, I try another brand of low cost but nothing to do with the one
what I like most the number of color and gobo wheel varied and mostly two separate this type of product, the electronic display, weight, size, axcessibilite a lamp or maintenance, for me no less (apart from not having to buy more soon!)
the great value for money (I have them buy secondhand!) so I remake this choice of remaining within pledge of quality martin

The manual is in English, but it is available in .pdf / franais on the site of Martin

Excellent little machine, trs light, manufacturing srieuse and robust, high quality optics. Focus Aprsrglage thanks a worm, the gobos are arch-net!
The DMX address could not be easier with the display is the same system as the coding wheels, we go around - turn the number of units, tens, hundreds. A button allows accder directly to automatic mode (Intgr programs) or music mode.
The engines are ultra quiet, we do not hear hardly any, its exchange Contest SCN-500! BMOL, the amplitude of a fair bit Tilt, Pan is perfect with a cover nearly 180. The movement is fast and well enough to ragissent faders.

In addition it is rich in effects trs: 14 gobos nice, very flashy 14 colors, including 5 multi trs disco or bicolor, rotogobo, Rotocolor, strobe, dimmer (too bad it is linear trs pa , the intensity decrease slowly at beginners, but then there is a clean cut to 20%), SETTING THE speed pan-tilt movements and the rate of change of gobos and colors. Really complete for this range, 8 channels max. all the same!

Manufacturing is strong Russia, all the connections are on the head, we can use possible on the ground, the length of the mounting bracket is adjustable, it accde the int Interior by removing a VIS ONLY hand! very practical for servicing, maintenance, or simply changing the lamp in the middle of night.
The indoor is Designed, the electronic card is at the bottom, away from the pa ventiol, manufacturing trs seems correct.
gobo-wheel and gobo their same are tiny! rle is a big zoom lens, and occupies half the space! In any case it is very well tudie, the opening is honorable and the brightness and gobos are super sharp.

Note that lamp is supplied with two power cords 2m. (One without a plug), a DMX cable 5m. (RS-485 no microphone) and a base to place it directly on the ground or against a wall

In short: The best qualiteffets / price for the SCX 500 in its range, perfect for small mobile disco and / or casual accessories.
But it is not replaceable sr it a good scan 250MSD :-)

- Some functions only feature larger machines
- Trs silent
- ACCS internal aisbr trs />
- Systm focus the sharpness seems weak lgrement
