The HP-Eight professional mixing console combines Crest's legendary high-quality audio design with modern, efficient construction. The HP-Eight 48-channel model is ideal for a variety of medium-capacity live performance venues and houses of worship. This quality dual-purpose (monitor or front of house) console also includes 10 aux sends on each mono input channel for use as a monitor mixer, plus five stereo line input channels with EQ, bus assignment and aux sends.
If extreme flexibility as well as exacting audio performance are required, the HP-Eight 48-channel mixer delivers those attributes and more to the budget-conscious installer and end user. The HP-Eight is filled with the functionality and performance that was once only available in much more expensive offerings.
The internal switching power supply on the HP-Eight is designed to work on worldwide voltages at 50 or 60 Hz, and a DC connector allows attachment of an optional, external backup supply (sold separately) for worry-free, redundant operation. These consoles are made in the U.S.A. and are backed by a five-year warranty.
