The HP-Eight professional mixing console combines Crest's legendary high-quality audio design with modern, efficient construction. The HP-Eight 56-channel model is ideal for a variety of medium-capacity live performance venues and houses of worship. This quality dual-purpose (monitor or front of house) console also includes 10 aux sends on each mono input channel for use as a monitor mixer, plus five stereo line input channels with EQ, bus assignment and aux sends.

If extreme flexibility as well as exacting audio performance are required, the HP-Eight delivers those attributes and more to the budget-conscious installer and end user. The HP-Eight 56-channel mixer is filled with the functionality and performance that was once only available in much more expensive offerings.

The internal switching power supply on the HP-Eight mixing console is designed to work on worldwide voltages at 50 or 60 Hz, and a DC connector allows attachment of an optional, external backup supply (sold separately) for worry-free, redundant operation. These consoles are made in the U.S.A. and are backed by a five-year warranty.

10 Auxiliary sends on mono input channels enables the console to be used as a monitor mixer

See all my reviews

OK, this is based on specs alone, and by the specs this mixing console has the best of every thing: noise & hum are -129db, T.H.D. is 0.0007%,the list gos on and on. Considering CREST in Peavey's luxury brand you know the reliability is second to none. what is there to lose? Buy now!!!
