    Mackie PPM608

    This product was made overseas, I understand there was poor quality control. It does not operate correctly with 2 - 8 ohm mains and 2 - 8 ohm monitors. The passive mics clip on the high gain settings with the slightest volume so I am forced to run them at low gain and have to turn the output level to maximum to get sufficient volume. I am only miking vocals mind you and they will not cut through without the volume at max which causes the mics to cut out if I sing too loud. Do not buy this product, they should have been recalled but were,t, I am finding many people are having the same problems and worse. MACKIE, come back to USA!

    Disappointing Experience

    I ordered one of these late last year to use playing out at local bars and restaurants. I play in a duo, and we needed approximately 5 inputs between mics and instruments. A good friend of mine has had the older model 608s for years and it is rock solid, so I thought I'd try the PPM608. Unfortunately I found out, while playing live and on the spot, that this mixer's built-in limiter was WAY TOO SENSITIVE for my needs. Any time I got on the mic or sang lyrics with a "P" sound in it this unit would cut the mains out, and believe me, I was coming nowhere CLOSE to pushing the limits of it's 1000W. Sweetwater was great and sent me another PPM608 right away, but it was actually even WORSE than the first one. I ended up boxing both of them back up and sending them in and getting a Samson TXM20 instead. Best decision ever - it is an excellent, clean sounding, solid, well laid out board. Although very disappointed in Mackie, the manner in which Sweetwater handled this guarantees that I will be a long term customer - they were great!
