Best Bang for the Buc$
I'm in my fifth decade of owning a regional sound company. Bands have been hauling their own gear for generations for a multitude of reasons. Things like cost and space were low considerations when gear was big, heavy and expensive. Today small, light and technologically leading edge is all I see from touring acts.
The PRO2 is a Midas. If you don't know about Midas they have been leading the pack since the industry began. The PRO2 is the number two requested desk (console, board) on every rider I've seen in six months. That tells me if you are a working audio engineer you better know how to run a PRO2.
If you are looking to purchase a console that meets riders AND is technologically ahead of the pack at a price point that can't be beat, look no further than the PRO2. Last point. A 'Tour Pack' includes a flight case, second power supply and the remote stage box with 48 in and 16 out. Recognize this is a stand alone console that can be split, control surface at front of house and the stage box, head amps and much of the processing on stage. Or you can simply put the DL251 under the console at foh and run a house analog snake. There is only one other similar option I know of and it costs considerably more and is still 48K sample rate whereas the Midas PRO2 has a 96K clock. I know I can hear the difference.
I didn't give it a 5 because nothing is perfect. I have yet to witness live competition to the PRO2 Tour Pack.
