MyMix vs Aviom

<< < (3/7) > >>

Kent Thompson:
Something else to consider is how each system is built. Bear in mind this was an equipment dealer saying this but, he said everything but the Roland would fall apart after being used on the road(the mymix was not included in his comments). Granted this will be non moving in a church setting but, reliability and durability should also play into your decision.

Second is how does each system compare sound wise.

If you are looking at an iLive. They do have digital interfaces for a few systems out there except mymix and the Roland (without adding a bunch of equipment). The mymix has no digital input possibilities that I can see correct me if I am wrong in this.

I noticed that this system only has inputs and no through so you will need a splitter or extra dedicated outputs to feed the mymix. It would be good to talk with someone in the company to see where they are heading with their products to see how they might play into future changes you have planned for you system.

They are using the new open standards audio networking protocol I noticed which means it could at a later time talk with other systems that adhere to this protocol. And take feeds from them? (ie audinate who also has promised to adhere to this protocol once finalized) something to ask anyways.

Kent,
If you are referring to me, I am not a dealer for anything.  My company provides design, consultation and training.  At times we also provide brokerage services.

As far as interfacing goes, the Roland does not require "A bunch of extra equipment", it can interface to any MADI interface via the S-MADI interface.  The I Live T can utilize the M-MADI as an output card.

AVIOM ca not take any connection type except A-Net.  They do make their own A to D converters to get into the A-Net format or you can utilize an A-Net card as an output from various digital mixers.  Perhaps this would also be "A bunch of extra equipment".

I do not know enough about MyMix to comment.  I did not see any notes about a direct digital input capability, only analogue.

Lee,

Thanks for the "ramblings".  I am not a computer network savvy guy.  Even less so than I am a sound system savvy guy.  Anyway I looked some more at the MyMix website.  One of their sample configurations pretty much matches what I have in mind for us, but it does as you noted require a managed switch and 1gb connnection.  Is that still standard Cat5 cable?



The Roland system would be much more flexible I am sure.  It looks like that would easily run us around $20,000 or more for a system with 10 mix positions.  I think a MyMix system of the same general proportions would be around $10,000 probably.

We'll know more once we put hands on the MyMix install at a local church and talk through it with the local dealer (he also carries Aviom and Roland BTW).

Take care,
Loren Jones

Wow.  I am glad you have the money and it looks like a good system.  I thank God there are much less expensive personal monitor systems for churches with smaller budgets.

No it was someone else from a different forums that's why I used the qualifier, and yes I forgot about the new madi interface for Roland. iLive has an A-Net card that includes the hearback connections and adat as well so its digital for both aviom and hearback.
