User for past 3 years
I have been an Allen and Heath user for many years and a user of the iLive consistently for the past 3 years. I was able to run one daily for years during college for contemporary and classical events at Valley Forge Christian College in PA and recently purchased one for National Community Church where I am now on staff. I love the user friendliness of the console and how easy it is to get up and running. It is extremely intuitive and sounds amazing. Given the functionality and price along with the quality of the product, the iLive is in a league of it's own. The CAT5 snake is great and will save you from having to purchase a main FOH analog snake saving you time (in transporting as well as setting up an analog snake) as well as money in purchasing extra infrastructure. I'd highly recommend this console to anyone looking to purchase a great sounding digital console and who may be worried about making that transition from analog to digital.
