Peavey PV Series Mixing Consoles

Featuring up to eight channels of reference-quality mic preamps, up to eight direct outputs for recording, stereo channels, media channel with Bluetooth input, high quality effects, streaming USB out, and MP3 playback, PV Series mixers are excellent for both live and recording applications. A Listen feature allows users to listen to individual channels via headphones or control room outputs, while EQ bypass allows push-button comparison of the EQ signal to the original signal. Exclusive guitar-shape adjusts the EQ and preamp specifically for guitar. Hi pass filters on each channel remove noise, while balanced AUX and Master outputs ensure a noise-free signal to speakers or amplifier. Three configurations are available: PV 14 BT (eight XLR/1/4-inch combo mic preamps, eight channels), PV 10 BT (four XLR/1/4-inch combo mic preamps, four channels), and PV 6 BT/PV (two XLR/1/4-inch combo mic preamps, two channels).
