About: PA & Live Sound
Short for Public Address, the term PA describes all equipment used to broadcast sound in relatively large spaces where the original audio source would otherwise be difficult to hear.
Accordingly, PA & Live Sound gear is a necessity for any live music setting. This necessity is even more apparent given that the Beatles stopped touring largely because they couldn’t hear their instruments anymore over the cries of their fans at concerts.

Good Quality monitor (HK Audio - D.A.R.T)
Very good gain before feedback as very smooth frequency response speaker.deal for vocals monitors but not powerful enough for drum fill or bass guitar...understandable as only 12 inch speaker. Very heavy speaker though as old analogoue technology not digital amp..If you are looking for a used pro monitor then buy one of these!!
Outstanding (Xvive - U3)
I use this with both headset and handheld mics.
There are no other comparable products in this price range.
1: Can be used with any dynamic microphone--whether headset, lavalier, or handheld [condenser mics need not apply]
2: Small footprint on sound desk since the receiver plugs directly into the mixer instead of being a box sitting to the side taking up additional space.
3: Both transmitter and receiver have internal, rechargeable lithium batteries, so no changing of batteries is required.
4: Transmitters/receivers have channel selectors for up to six channels, meaning one can use up to six of these at once.
5: Manufacturer is very good at responding to customer inquiries.
1: Can only be used with dynamic mics.
2: XLR connection on transmitter limits choices of headset mics.
3: Transmission range limited to less than 100 feet.
The pros still outweigh the ocns on using these--especially in small settings such as coffee houses, small churches.
Posetively surprised by "peanut money" Ibiza AMP300 (professional power amplifier)! (Ibiza Sound - Amp 300)
Hi! I am a music listener, and HiFi is my favourite hobby.
Needed a second amp/poweramp(for my bedroom?!). Looking at pro gear for some time, i'm a tradidtional HiFi guy - on some forums (Audiophile-forums), pro audio gear are a bit like "swearing in a church..."
Thought i try something realy cheap = surviveble loss(If the item sucks).
I bought it on a web shop in Sweden "electronic.star" for the price of 840 SEK(approx. $75 US). I was concidering "Emotiva BasX 150", but didn't have the budget.
We all know about the "inflation" in power specs - so the info, that it would put out 2 x 160W @ 8 ohm, 0.5 THD. Well i was skeptic.
Used my very old pre amp "Adcom GFP-555", connected it with 4 meters of TaraLabs 500i to the AMP300, and with 2 meters of SupraPly 3.4 sp.wire to my JBL Arena 180. And switched the power on - played 2'nd track of "Godsmack" new CD on my Rotel RCD-971...
Wow - not "HiFi-nirvana", but "R'n'R" in your face - hard hitting bass, detailed, but not harsh treble, midrange (vocals) = not so god. I listened for days, liked what i heard. Plenty of power, i say 2 x 100 honest Watts, clean, no dist! The ever "roaring" cooling fan is driving me mad though.
Summation: for the money = outstanding! Will i buy more Pro amps? Yes - planning to buy Ibiza AMP600(or 800?) in March. To power my front speakers in my A/V system! (I got to do something about that blxxxdy fan! Thermostat switch thing? - not afraid to void the warranty, so if any of you guys have a tip for me, i'm all ears). Also - Build Q = Not the best, don't expect it to have a "long and healthy life...".
