Lots of Mixer for Not a Lotta Dollar!Sometimes you just need a compact mixer. Maybe it's because you play in a band with small-scale PA needs. Maybe it's because you want a little mixer to pipe audio into your video camera. Maybe you have a keyboard rig you want to submix. Whatever the reason, the PV 6 has about the best bang-for-your-buck factor you're going to find. It's a 6-channel mixer for under a hundred bucks, which is a steal as it is. Then when you consider its durable metal construction and super-quiet microphone preamps (four of them, at that!), you know you've got a winner here.
Let's dive into the nitty gritty. Each of the four main "channels" on the PV6 has both XLR and 1/4" inputs, plus phantom power, an EQ (3-band on channels 1 and 2), and an effects send. Keep in mind that "channels" 3 and 4 are stereo channels, so that's how you get that "6" number. Long story short, you'll be able to connect lots of gear into this bad boy.
Now let's take a look at the master section. You have a fader to ride, so you can set just the right level. And as far as outputs go, you have balanced main outputs and balanced control room outputs for sending your signal to a couple different places. Also, feel free to stick your headphones in the headphone jack, adjust the headphone level with the dedicated knob, and tweak your mix.
If you're on the lookout for an affordable, does-the-job mixer, you've found it. Stomp on it, throw it, do what you will.. the PV6 is the sort of compact mixer that's going to work and keep working and keep working and keep working and keep working and you get the idea.
