    Can't believe no reviews yet!

    Bought this mixer a month ago and have used it at 4 gigs so far. I gotta tell you, it's really nice. Sound reproduction is spot-on, great variety of built-in effects (though I only use a little reverb on voice, i let guitar effects handle the rest) - I play in a trio, and this has plenty of inputs and power - run it thru 2 15s with horns and it sounds great - big enough to handle a few hundred people in an outdoor setting. The set-up is pretty easy and intuitive - one quick look thru the manual and you'll have it figured out. It's a little heavy, but not terrible (i think about 25 lbs?). I really have nothing bad to say about it except that the monitor/main set-up is a little confusing at first, and the small knobs make me a little nervous for long-term hold-up (but to their credit, they seem pretty sturdy...)

    Bad solder joints

    This thing sounds really great - when it works. Tried to repair it by soldering any suspect solder joints about 4 or 5 times (a real pain) but still lose the channel on the monitor side when I have it set for mains. It happens randomly. It works right now, but nervous about gigging with it.

    Buyer Beware!

    Don't buy this thing. We have had nothing but problems out of the chute. Mains cutting out in the middle of performance - a real deal breaker. Cheap plastic enclosure - made in China - what more can I say. Peavey used to make good basic reliable gear- not with this product.
