Comments about Peavey PVi 8500 8-Channel 400W Powered PA Head with Bluetooth and FX:

`Well I ordered it on-line, and the first one I got lasted about 10 minutes.. The Player fizzed out.. The second one is on week 3 and I like it for what it is.. ~ The Blue Tooth is pretty much worthless, Sound quality falls off a bit. and It only works about 6 feet of direct signal.. and you cant stand between the device and the Mixer.. ~ The usb and SD card slot are very useful. but good luck finding a track.. ~ as for the AMP... Sound quality is almost impressive.. The trick is to find the right speaker match for this unit. Hooking up 400 watt speakers then complaining about the quality. some smaller wattage speakers seem to come alive.. Im using my old 1969 SHURE Vocal Masters Again.. 100 watts ~------Cons------- -only ONE Monitor Out.. -Only 1/4 inch Speaker Jacks (which is ok,but should have both kinds) -No Effects Loop. -on-board effects, seem to have to be turn all the way up to get anything. -No Gain Control on each channel. -Bluetooth is weak and kinda useless. --------Pros------- -I do give it 4 stars, Because it works, and sounds good.. -the 9 band eq actually works well, feedback is minimal. -The sound quality is very good, Just hook them up to your home stereo speakers and see.. -very light/built well/versatile and LOUD. -for actual 75 watts RMS rating per side, The amp drives most speakers pretty nice. -the on-board mp3 player is a very nice feature and works OK and is also the main reason I wanted the unit, but a direct wired player is the best quality. -and each mic channel 3 band works well also.. Havent really noticed the cosmo knobs yet...

      So far so good.... For a powered amp it does well. Bluetooth and SD card functions could be better. All around a nice setup. With 20% discount you can't beat it for under $400.
