Audiofanzine FR's review (PowerMate 600)

By Audiofanzine FR, 01/12/2008
(Originally written by Zanzibar/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Internal amp (2 x 300 watts, 4 ohms)

- Six mic/line channels

- Two stereo line inputs

- Two aux sends

- Two 24 bit stereo effects

- Two speaker outputs on speakon connectors

- 7-band master EQ

I've been using it for over one year at the place I work. We use it for small events with two or four mics. Especially for locations without PA system. Just place the speakers, connect the mixer and the mics, open the channels and that's it...

Pros: very convenient internal amp. Compact size.

Cons: no channel mutes. No semi-parametric EQs, few outputs.

I use several mixers, like the Powermate 1600 but I also use different analog Yamaha and Crest mixers very often, as well as an LS9, an M7CL, etc.

The price is ok for a complete system (2 x 340-watt amp + mixer). It's not very versatile and the routing possibilities are very limited. It isn't bad for some applications. But it has not enough inputs/outputs to handle a rock band in a pub. It's ok for a duet or a small trio.

Its main advantage are reliability and long life.

Superb Quality but Terrible Customer Support (PowerMate 1600)

By Robert Nicklas, 06/06/2018
I have a Powermate 1600 which is irreparable due to Dynacord Policy. I loved using this desk. Very user friendly, robust, huge power, all the inputs and outputs you could need, fantastic effects, I could rave about it for hours. The trouble is it has developed a fault and Dynacord will not release the schematic. Three different, highly reputable service engineers have told me that Dynacord are unique in not helping customers in this respect. This renders Dynacord products irreparable. If they had good customer relations I would recommend but I am forced to say do not buy.
