The new Behringer EUROPORT EPS500MP3 PA system includes an 8-channel, 500-watt powered mixer with built-in MP3 player as well as wireless microphone capability; two loudspeakers, each with an 8-in woofer and 1-in compression driver; and a storage compartment for the included XM1800S mic and cabling.
The 8-channel powered mixer can be left attached to the back of the speaker or detached for easy positioning and access. Channels 1 - 4 include XENYX mic preamps, accept balanced XLR mics, as well as balanced and unbalanced 1/4-inch line-level sources.
Phantom power is provided for condenser mics, and each channel has its own 2-band EQ. Stereo channels accommodate both RCA and 1/4-inch inputs.
A unique music/speech filter allows the user to select preferred optimization. In addition, the EPS500MP3’s user-controllable Voice-Over-Priority function can be activated to automatically lower the stereo channels when a mic is in use.
Behringer ULM wireless microphone technology is built-in—just connect the mic receiver (mics and receiver sold separately) to the dedicated port for up to two channels of stable, natural-sounding wireless performance. A digital reverb processor rounds out the package.
The EUROPORT EPS500MP3 will arrive in retail stores in the second quarter of this year and is covered by the company’s 3-year warranty program.
