      Portable PA meets modern media.

      The MS-USB is a versatile, all-in-one portable sound system with a USB memory port and SD card slot, making it easier than ever to play media directly from a USB storage device or SD card. With impressive power, flexible connections and comprehensive features, the MS-USB offers a great sounding, highly portable PA solution for a wide range of applications.

      Superior sound anywhere you need it.
      Ideal for outdoor events, mobile musicians, fitness instructors and anyone else who needs a premium, lightweight speaker system, the MS-USB boasts a high-quality built-in amplifier, which provides 100 watts of Peak power (50 watts RMS) to its enclosed 5-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter. And to ensure seamless performance wherever and whenever you need it, the MS-USB provides up to twelve hours of continuous operation from its ultra-efficient rechargeable battery.

      Unique features for bold performance.
      In addition to its convenient playback options for USB and SD memory devices, the MS-USB includes an LCD screen that displays your track and folder information, while a rotary Search knob allows you to easily navigate through the files on your thumb drives and memory cards. Whereas other portable PA systems only let you plug in a memory device and hit play, the MS-USB's player interface actually gives you the power to scroll through your tracks and fully control your music.

      Additional playback tools like Cue, Reverse, Pitch Bend and Pitch Control give you even more customizable command, while a Loop Section enables you to repeat a specific section of a song or create a recurring message, making it ideal for band directors trying to drill a particular passage or employees on a tradeshow booth looking to repeat an informative message.

      Mobile media in its most accessible form.
      USB drives and SD cards are convenient, inexpensive ways to take your music with you. Portable media players can be pricey, so it's frustrating when one gets lost or broken. Not to mention, most schools and businesses don't have a surplus of spare media players just lying around. Compatibility with USB and SD memory devices ensures that the MS-USB will accept the most accessible and economical form of portable media. And anyone can bring their own drives or cards for an interchangeable music experience. Of course, you can also use the stereo RCA input and an RCA cable to connect an external MP3 or CD player if you prefer.

      Be distinct… with your voice and your music.
      For greater versatility, the MS-USB houses a balanced microphone input with gain control. A dynamic microphone is also included, making it a valuable tool for speeches, meetings, assemblies, tradeshows, parties and outdoor gatherings. The MS-USB can also be used with wireless microphones, so fitness instructors can lead high-energy workout sessions while incorporating their choice of background music. Plus, the MS-USB’s ¼-inch line input allows you to plug in an instrument, like a guitar or keyboard, and play along with backing tracks, offering singer-songwriters a great solution for gigs at small venues or spontaneous jam sessions.

      Mobile. Versatile. Intuitive.
      Thanks to durable casters, a telescoping handle and a weight of only 28 pounds, the MS-USB is a breeze to transport from one event or gig to the next. There’s even a Link Output that lets you daisy chain multiple units together for stereo and surround operations, while a pole mount receptacle offers flexible positioning options. And with quick, simple setup, as well as intuitive controls, the MS-USB is easy for anyone to use.

      With outstanding convenience, professional sound quality and versatile features, the MS-USB provides a reliable and portable single system solution for a broad range of PA and media playing applications.

          Comments about Gemini MS-USB Portable PA System:

          During the 4th week of ownership, the battery started loosing its ability to hold a charge. With a fully charged battery and the system completely off, the battery lost charge just sitting overnight. This type of problem is typically due to an internal leakage that develops between the electrodes in the battery. In addition to the battery problem, the overall sound quality of the unit has been marginal at best. In particular, the high piano notes are very tinny. On 7/15/2013, I talked to Musician's Friend about the problems, but since the unit was out of their warranty they referred me to Gemini Customer Service. On 7/16/2013, I talked to Gemini Customer Service and they issued me an RMA number to return the unit. The shipping by UPS was at my expense (~$60). The unit was delivered and accepted at their dock on 7/22/2013. Today is 8/23/2013 (over a month) and I have not heard a word from them. Today I spent an hour on hold trying to talk to someone in Customer Service about a status report. No one ever answered. I finally left a voice mail message, but I will be surprised if I get a response. Based on my experience I suspect that Gemini is experiencing a lot of technical problems. Based on my experience with their portable PA system and their very poor response, I have changed my recommendation response to "Not Recommended".

          Comments about Gemini MS-USB Portable PA System:

          After problems with 2 Alesis Transactive Mobile Roller PA With iPod Dock, I decided to go with the Gemini MS-USB PA System. I have had the unit 3 months and am basically satisfied the its performance. The sound clarity is not great, but I would classify it as average (okay). I like the thumb drive and SD card inputs and the display is easy to use for selecting folders and mp3 files. I use the thumb drive almost exclusively. One problem that I have experinced is that the display sorts the folders based on the order that they were downloaded to the thumb drive, not alphabetically. I have not found a way to get an alphabetical listing without doing an alphabetical download of the folders. The mic outputs are weak compared to the audio outputs (thumb drive or cd). The mic gain setting has to be run 3-4 marks higher than the audio gain setting in order to get a good balance of vocal & audio instrumentation. To address this issue I got a Nady MM-14FX Mini Mixer from Musician's Friend. The Mini Mixer has 4 input channels & 1 output channel and is reported to increase the output of each channel up to 50 decibels. Using the Mini Mixer I was able to increase the mic input signal such that I only had to run the mic gain 2 marks higher than the audio gain. I had to limit the Mini Mixer setting at mark #1 out of 10 marks. If any setting higher than #1 on the Mini Mixer was used, then the mic input on the PA system could not handle it (mic vocal output became distorted). One advantage of the Mini Mixer is that it is battery powered. With both the PA System and Mini Mixer being battery powered, you have great flexibility in where you can set up your system. The negative is that the Mini Mixer does not have a low battery indicator (be sure you have an extra battery with you). At this price range, you will probably not find a system that will give excellent performance in every category. For the price, the performance and flexibility that the Gemini MS-USB PA System/Nady MM-14FX Mini Mixer combo provides has been very pleasing.

            BOught the refurbished unit and am not one bit sorry. It arrived on time, packed in original carton with all cords and manual. It works just great and if you know what 50 watts rms is designed for and in what rooms to use this unit you'll be very satisfied. The usb/sd player is a nice plus and it has only a slight learning curve to get used to the controls.
