    I am a professional singer/Guitarist what I call a "Bar Professional". and perform about 200 shows a year. I hate to buy new gear, but I know what works for me and Mackie still does, I bought a whole Behringer system on the adive of a friend and associate and sent it back after a week. I ordered the Mackie and the a pair of JBL EON's and now I am happy again.
    Only thing I haven't like about the 1008 so far is no actual gain control. but I have found away to overcome that. Just keep your line level signals lower and let the Mixer and Amp do the rest.
    I have two 808M's one 11 years old and another that is 4. unfortunely they are both in need of some repair. I play a lot of gigs near the ocean so humidity can be a killer for these. But I think this is a Quality PPM. I tried the Behringer 1680's and sent it back after a week trying to get it tweaked.
    Well let me say that for the 808M's I Own I paid about a little less for both of those. The price might be a bit high for this unit but you get what you pay for in most cases. I.E the Behringer 1680s, it is my opinion that the 1008 is much better.

    Avoid this product. I made the mistake of purchasing this along with Mackie's 300z speakers. While having the mains set to unity with only one guitar and one vocal, the built-in speaker protection would keep kicking in which causes one speaker to shut down for a split second or two. This has happened at each live gig.

    I reached out o Mackie via e-mail and never heard back. I tried calling and was on hold for 30 minutes before giving up. I then went to their Facebook page and asked for help. I was told it was on its way. Two weeks later, nothing. So, I then posted a note on their wall asking if they cared about their customers? They responded by deleting my comment and banning me from their page.

    This thing is a POS and Mackie clearly has dropped the ball.

    Comments about Mackie PPM1008 8-Channel 1600-Watt Powered Mixer:

    Read a lot of bad reviews about overloading and temporally shutting down. If you use the correct input selection there are no problems with overload. Would like to see a 10 channel version in same package. The variable mid range frequency is a nice touch that others do not have. Nice built in effects!

      Comments about Mackie PPM1008 8-Channel 1600-Watt Powered Mixer:

      I wrote the most liked negative review about this product last year.

      Since then, I've taken this same unit to the local repair shop, as recommended by Mackie. It turns out, I had a bad power amp. The power amp was replaced at no cost as it was covered under warranty.

      Since then, I've used the PPM for around 60 live gigs each year (2 vocals, 2 guitar and keys). It's held up very well. I even picked up the Mackie powered subwoofer to go along with it. Combined, I get a very robust sound. I recently used that combo for an outdoor movie to around 150 people. Received many compliments on sound.

      So, since the bad power amp was replaced, I give it two thumbs up.

            Mackie used to build quality gear. Since moving their assembly to China, quality has suffered along with dependability. My mixer went out without warning one night at the gig, which is a low volume piano setting. At these prices, it's too expensive to keep an extra around.

              After seeing all the bad reviews on this head I was scared to try it but knowing how well all my other mackie equipment has held up I figured I would give it a try. I have only used it a few times and it rocks. Has everything I need in a compact size. I dont have to pull my trailer to the gig to get a big sound. I use it left and right stereo and run a crown 1500 watt amp for a sub or two on one side and run the monitors on the other side of my crown. Love it

              I'ver been an avid mackie customer for decades. I just can't figure out what went wrong in the lab on this one. Mackie...you guys have been best in class for too long to let this mistake tarnish the brand...cut your losses and bring back the 808s.

              Comments about Mackie PPM1008 8-Channel 1600-Watt Powered Mixer:

              Sorry Mackie, peavey smokes your doors off on this one.
              Clipped several times at several gigs then one night it clipped and died. The best option on this is the subwoofer out, of course the light weight is awesome. But for the price, Peavey kicks its hiney.
              the sound quality is ok at best, but not why I would buy a mixer like this, bought it for portable live sound with alot of power.
              price isnt bad, but no matter what you pay for it if it dont work, its useless.

              Not a good choice for me

              By Jeanine Leder

              from California

              Comments about Mackie PPM1008 8-Channel 1600-Watt Powered Mixer:

              I bought this powered mixer based on the trusted Mackie name. Friends of mine have used the 808 for years and years and I've always loved their sound.

              This mixer for me has caused nothing but grief! I am playing at very low-level volumes with minimal FX. I've had huge feedback issues (partly due to small spaces I'm playing in) but also experiencing crackling sounds and distortion from the vocals. I have followed the Owner's Manual instructions to the T and have read through the manual many times in hopes to figure out what is causing this distortion at such low volume levels.

              Last night at a gig, I had to shut it down and just play the acoustic guitar and sing unamplified. I'm very surprised that I'm having these problems with a Mackie.

              I have replaced all of my cords and even purchased new speakers thinking that the speakers might be the problem.

              I would not recommend this PA head.

              Comments about Mackie PPM1008 8-Channel 1600-Watt Powered Mixer:

              I have used plenty of Mackie gear over the years and always had a great experience until I got the PPM1008. It cuts out at random during a gig. Even on a soft acoustic set. I've had it less than a year. Plenty of features but the cutting out is not acceptable. I called Mackie and now I have to carry it in for warranty repair. Not what you would expect from a quality piece of gear.
