This looks interesting - anybody have any thoughts? also do you think it will be better than the 260?

I think it is mainly the PA with easier setup via an iPad.....(at least that is what a quick perusal of it looked like)


I dug a bit but it was hard to find specifics on delay times it can handle. That has been one of the biggest issues we have had with the PA vs. 260 decision.


Maybe they have more info on line now?

That's kind of what I thought- the Ipad functionality sounds good but I think the routing capabilities of the 260 are probably still better- I wish they were introducing a 260a with ipad remote.  I'm currently using the beringer dcx2496- and want the 260 for my Jbl Srx set up.

I'll withhold final judgment until the full specs for the PA2 are out, but assuming it is what I think it is, there won't be the level of flexibility that the 260 and greater have.  This is one of the more puzzling omissions - the 260 is I think 13 years old now, and not particularly competitive.  Not sure why been this long with still no announced replacement.

Yeah, I'd like to see an AES input on the 260.

Anybody have anything new to say about this piece of gear? Im wondering if it would be a worthy upgrade from the PA+. Anybody with real world usage of both for comparison?

I received several of these recently.
It looks really good so far.
The iPad is pretty good.

Although I haven't the opportunity to take mine out of the box yet, the interface looks awesome.  I'm also looking forward to no more pink noise.

Now that was just totally uncalled for.

I suppose Crimson & Cream noise was too big of a request.
