Greetings and thanks for your time in advance!So to preface this post let me state a couple of things. 1. I have been doing FOH for my church for about 5 years and most of that time has been an attempt to correct a terrible 'commercial' solution that was installed prior to my taking on Audio/Visual Ministries. This included a 70v distributed solution. (Yikes) So if in my system description you find yourself saying 'What!?' please note that due to budget constraints, reusing existing equipment in 'creative' ways is all part of the gig! 2. Our church is traditional is worship style. Like 9 foot Yamaha Grand, 3 console Veritas organ, choir and orchestra traditional. 3. Our room is a Sanctinasium, Gymnatorium, or in trendy terms, Multiuse Facility.Our current console is a powered Allen and Heath PA20 CP. Mains and Monitor mix 1 and 2 are fed into a Sabine NAV360 and matrixed to six outputs: Mains Center, Mains L/R, Choir, Organ, Stage/Orchestra, Bleacher Fills. Aux mix is for the piano and skips the NAV360 and is running on the L side of ancient Carvin amp. The A&H internal amps are used to power two monitor mixes (stage, organ). The Choir monitors are running on one channel of my Crown 70v amp, the bleacher fills are on the other side of the Crown 70v using delays from the NAV360. Bleacher Fills are off unless we have overflow for large events or sports events for the school. Mains are three internally powered QSC K-10's. The Allen and Heath has been dropping gain pots and thus channels one at a time since 2010. I currently am running a Behringer Xenyx 1204 as a submixer to keep everything going. I was asked by the pastoral staff to recommend three options. 1. Basic Analog replacement for current system. 2. Upgraded Analog replacement. 3. Entry level digital replacement. As you can imagine reliability is paramount for any solution I suggest. After reading tons of reviews, posts, ect. and talking with HOW sound guys I know I have come up with three solutions. Please let me know if you have any experience with these consoles.1. Yamaha MG24/14 FX or Yamaha MG32/14 FX.2. Soundcraft GB4 -243. Presonus Studiolive 16.4.2 or 24.4.2Also without asking I have tried to come up with a solution under $700.... Peavey PV 20 USB - however this opinion is based solely on reading online reviews.I'm afraid to suggest a Behringer solution due to reliability questions and I'm not a big fan of Mackie as my local repair guy says that he sees plenty of them coming in for fixing. I have left out solutions that don't have a least a 3/4 year track record.Thanks Again!
Thanks Bob - You are the third person to recommend for the X32 actually - Have a local guy who likes it as well. I actually own a Xenyx 1204 and have another friend who loves his Eurodesk - 4 years and not a single issue. I just am not sure I want to recommend a Behringer yet, although I gave it a lot of thought but erred on the side of caution.
As you can imagine reliability is paramount for any solution I suggest. Thanks Again!
