Good bang for your buck, No doubt. I'm very surprised at the power and versatility that this mixer has. I have not yet gave it a full run, but I plan to tommorrow, New Years Eve Party !!!! I have tried it at my house and needless to say this thing is awesome. I am actually running Two Gemini 15s and Two Nady 15 subs and they came to life once I hit the switch. You have so much flexibility with the presets, and the EQ really lets you adjust your sound just like you want it. Gear One and MF trully had the low budget musicians/ DJs in mind when they came out with this one. Great job guys. Look forward to more good products and bargains from MF.

I am pleased with this purchase, as is my customer. Over the past few weeks, many soloists have used the unit and patrons continually comment on the sound quality.....But remember.....I am using great speakers and mics with this unit which contribute FAR more to the sound quality than the amp.
My only caveat with this unit is the inclusion of the cooling fan in the back, which is a bit loud and can be heard (not in the siganal path) when the performer is silent. It's not too objectionable and merely a slightly negative observation.
I purchased the PA1300 recently for an installation job at a small coffee house. The feature set of this mixer is quite decent and more than what is typically required at this location. The "kickback" cabinet design is a great bonus and well thought out.
The addition of the 1/8" input is also smart for break music between sets.
The preamps are typical of a unit of this price and don't provide a lot of gain but they're reletively quiet.
The DSP section is adequate for some standard reverb and the unit has sufficient outputs to provide both a global monitor mix as well as line out jacks for distributing signal.
The build quality is quite impressive considering the price. The cabinet is well constructed and durable. The jacks are decent and firm.
The only thing that reveals a bit of "cheapness" is the potentiometers, which are a bit flimsy and are nylon posts. I am crossing my fingers that none of the open-mic performers smack the front of the unit because it will surely mean a pot or two will snap off.
you could certainly do worse than this unit. As with any powered mixer, you can't get great sound with lousy microphones and speakers, so don't skimp on those.
I purchased a pair of EV ZX1-90 speakers, which sound amazing for their size.....But they are NOT cheap ($299 each for passives).
I also had the customer purchase a couple EV N/D 767 microphones, which IMHO (I'm a freelance audio engineer) are superior to the Shure SM58 and cheaper at about $100 per.

    On the other review I posted it says the Cons are it 'Breaks Easily' but that was a mistake if I did it....we have not had any breakage at all.

    We are a Gospel Trio and we've had the big expensive PA systems...and the 'just-enough-to-get-by' set. This one is in between but perfect for what we do. We sing in local churches, nursing homes, parks and some decent sized government buildings for Anniversary singings and fund-raisers. Musician's Friend had such an AMAZING deal on this PA...so much that we were able to buy 2 (instead of just the 'one' we were shopping for!) and use one at our church!! Thanks and God bless you Musician's Friend!

        Getting older and just playing solo jobs now,I wanted to downsize my equipment.So recently I started researching smaller PA heads and speakers.I still like passive systems,so didn't consider "active"type.Checking Musicians Friend E-mail they had these heads on sale for a stupid low price.They had decent reviews,I figured why not I can always return it.Received units[ordered two] and I'm amazed.They sound great.I'll take good care of them and they should last as long as I need a system!.

            I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this PA Mixer because my last PA system was a Peavey XR-500 that I bought in the mid-80s. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it works well for me (solo and duo acoustic guitarist) and am looking forward to using it at my first gig (hopefully, soon).

              I need a small power house 6 channel mixer and i think this one will do just fine. It has everything i need for my speakers that i have for my band. i do not need anything to fancy for my taste and this mixer is plain and simple. It has enough power for me and it will hold up to what i need it for in my situation of music. I do not need all kinds of inputs and line in and outs. Just keep it simple and not too complicated !

                This reliable workhorse has been great. I leave my big board and unpowered mains at home now and just use this and my two powered mains and my unpowered monitors. Small light and reliable. Plus it's low priced. I am very happy with this purchase for perfomances in small bars and clubs.

                    This is a great small mixer-amplifier , and tough ,too . Mine arrived with some damage to the case thanks to abuse by UPS . I mostly fixed the case damage , and the unit itself works great despite what UPS did . With reasonable care this mixer will last a long time . No one would do to their equipment what UPS does to their packages !
                    The sound is very good and the output will fill small to medium venues . I am using two large Kustom speakers with this and it rocks !
