Chauvet Obay 40 DMX Lighting Controller

By Roger

from Elizabeth. NJ

Comments about CHAUVET DJ Obey 40 DMX Lighting Controller:

The Chauvet Obey 40 DMX Lighting Controller worked very well for the Dance / Technology program the students put on! With in three days the students were able to Use the Chauvet Obey 40 DMX Lighting Controller to control a laser system that was not only in sync with the live show but used the full abilities of the laser System! I would highly recommend this system to anyone needing DMX512 control!

Junk

By Zak

Comments about CHAUVET DJ Obey 40 DMX Lighting Controller:

This is Chauvet's version of the ubiquitous cheap DMX controller. I believe this, the Elation DMX Operator and many other essentially identical controllers are all made by the same Chinese company and simply come with different branding. The build quality is quite bad. Solder joints are prone to breaking, especially on the power connector. Buttons and faders are very prone to failure, and almost always malfunction just after the warranty is up. The feature set is extremely limited too. Only one scene can be active at a time, making independent control of multiple types of fixtures very difficult. There's also no patching; fixtures must be set to the addresses 1, 17, 33, 49, and so on. Avoid this controller unless you're doing very simple things with a small number of identical fixtures. You'll make up the extra money you spend on something better in programming time, and you'll be able to do more with your lights for better looking shows.

BROKE IN 2 MINUTES, SO DID THE REPLACEMENT

    Comments about CHAUVET DJ Obey 40 DMX Lighting Controller:

    I bought two thousand dollars worth of DMX lights and cables and this controller. plugged in the first 2 lights and it worked fine. by the time I set up the address on the 3rd light to plug it in to the daisy chain, the first 2 lights went black and the controller was stone dead. I called Chauvet support and they said the unit was defective so they sent the stuff to return it and they replaced it - took like 20 days, plugged in the replacement unit and it worked for 2 minutes and quit working. Now they are saying it must be a bad batch. Lights have been set up now for almost 2 months and I still have no controller.

        Avoid this controller.. the sliders started to fall off, right out of the box. THe build quality is terrible. I might as well have bought a Chinese counterfit considering the quality would have been the same
