  • Yamaha MSR range of Active PA speakers - Available here

    The Yamaha MSR range of Active PA speakers are now live on the EAV website. The range consists of four speakers that are at home in the live sound world or also as an installation speaker.

    Starting the range off is the small MSR100 Active PA speaker. It offers 100w of power and can be used as a stage monitor if needs be. Next up is the Yamaha MSR250 speaker, then the Yamaha MSR400 and finally the MSR800W active sub speaker. All of them offer the quality that is expected from Yamaha PA speakers. Combining a single MSR800W with a pair of MSR400 speakers is a popular bundle as it gives you a well-rounded sound and 1600w of power. If you then add a further MSR800W then you get a PA system that is perfect for a band to take on the road.

    You may recognise the design of the MSR speakers from the ever popular Stagepas systems that have become our biggest selling portable PA systems in the last 12 months. The Stagepas 500 is perfect for acoustic acts or people wanting a portable speech system.

    Give us a call or drop us an email if you want to know a little more about the Yamaha MSR range of active PA speakers or the Stagepas series.

  • Sennheiser Wireless Microphones – New Ranges Available

    EAV Pro Audio are happy to say we have expanded our Sennheiser wireless microphone ranges on our website. At the start of the year we added the all new XSW range of entry level professional systems to the already popular EW100 G3 and EW300 G3. Earlier this week we added the EW500 G3 wireless microphone series and the tour-grade professional 2000 series.

    The beauty of all Sennheiser’s radio mic systems is that even the lowest end (excluding the Freeports) XSW wireless can be used in a professional set-up. As a musician myself, I would be filled with an absolute confidence that this entry level series would do me proud on-stage. The XSW wireless microphone series has a 24MHz bandwidth that allows you to link up to 12 systems together.

    As you move up the ranges you obviously gain more features, the 2000 series offers everything a professional touring company would need to run a high-end event. With a 75 MHz UHF range, you can run loads of systems simultaneously. They have Integrated antenna splitter for cascading up to 8 devices without using additional splitters, can be controlled using a PC/Laptop using WSM PC Sennheiser software, they have built-in EQ settings and so much more. See our range of 2000 series below for the full feature set

    The Sennheiser EW500 series fit nicely between the EW300 G3 series and the 2000 series. It’s designed for the stage and the range contains all the usual variations that you expect from the Sennheiser G3 wireless microphone ranges (see below).

    Sennheiser EW 500-965 G3 Condenser Vocal Wireless Microphone Sennheiser EW 500-945 G3 Vocal Wireless Microphone System Sennheiser EW 500-935 G3 Vocal Wireless Microphone System Sennheiser EW 572 G3 Wireless Microphone Instrument System Sennheiser EW 512 G3 Wireless Microphone System

    Sennheiser now cover most budgets with their systems. The other great thing about Sennheiser systems is the different frequency bands the systems are available on. They cover the majority of the UHF spectrum with the whole of the G3 range and the 2000 series.

  • Automatic Mixers | Installation Mixers From EAV

    We have just added to our already extensive range of professional PA equipment with a new category of Automatic Mixers which can be seen by clicking on the link. An Auto mixer is essentially a group of gates. Put simply, they have a number of mic inputs that turn on or off depending on the mixer sensing an audio signal. They all have a pre-set threshold and many of them have a mic priority setting that can cen be assigned to one or more microphones.

    The Automatic mixer is often found in churches and other houses of worship, in broadcast applications, recording situations, conference facilities, hotels and more. Apart from the obvious, here are some extra benefits you will find from using an auto mixer;

  • Gives you space on your main mixer – You could use an 8 channel auto mixer and then send that to just a single channel on your main mixing desk
  • Helps with Feedback issues as the channels are turned off when no audio signal is present
  • Quick and easy setup
  • Helps make speech environments clear and intelligible
  • Automates several operators functions

    We have a selection of Automatic mixers from the likes of Shure and Audio Technica. Each offer quality products with options of 4 channel units and 8 channel units. The beauty of most Auto mixers is that you can link more than one mixing desk together, Shure even boost that you can link as many units together to operate and automate up to 400 microphones.

    We are adding new products to the Automatic Mixers section as we find them and also to the rest of our website. If there is something you are looking for and can’t find on our website, just give us a call and we will do all we can to get hold of that product or a similar product for you.

  • How many wireless Microphones can run together?

    Everyone knows there are big changes happening to the wireless microphone frequencies at the moment. With channels 61 to 69 being taken away from radio mic users in December of this year and channel 38 replacing the old channel 69 shared band. With all these changes come many new questions regarding things like; 1) Do I need a license to run my systems? 2) Will my wireless microphone work after 2012? 3) What frequencies should I be using 4) Which license do I need If those are questions you would like answering, take a look at our wireless microphone frequency checker page, you will get the answers you require. Another big question we often get asked is ‘How Many wireless microphones can I run at once?’ Now the answer to this question relies on a number of things. The first being on which frequency band do you mean? If it’s the free band of channel 70 then you can ‘current’ run up to four wireless microphones simultaneously on this band. Now I say ‘currently’ because no one know exactly how channel 70 will be affected once the mobile broadband technology moves in to channels 61 to 69. There is a chance that channel 70 may be affected by this technology and depending on where you are in the country, you may find channel 70 very limited if at all usable. The problem is, no-one can say for sure until after 2012 when channels 61-69 are occupied. If you wish to know how many wireless microphones can be used in the new shared band of channel 38 then this is the current best information we can give. Some manufactures claim they can fit 12 wireless microphones running simultaneously within channel 38, others say they wouldn’t spec more than 8. Personally, I think 10 systems can be tuned with enough space in-between them to run comfortably on channel 38. Remember, channel 38 is designed for people moving from venue to venue, if you are based at a fixed location, I would be looking at buying a fixed license and purchasing a block of frequencies that only you can use in your area. These channels are a little smaller than channel 38 (8MHz instead of 12 MHz) and you can run around 8 systems on each of these channels. If you have any further questions about wireless microphone frequencies, just give us a call and we will do all we can to help.

  • Dynacord Powermate 600-3 Mixer Ready to Roll

    A brand new Powered mixer has just landed in the form of the Powermate 600-3 from Dynacord. We literally just got the news this morning about this and already have the mixer on the site ready for order. The reason we acted so fast is we are excited about this one. Why, I hear you ask. Well we got change to view all the Dynacord range of mixers and speakers last week at their special UK roadshow at Villa Park. It was a great day out and we were extremely impressed with the features and the power the Powermate range of mixers have to offer. The larger Powermate mixers all offer you 6 AUX channels, two of which are for FX, two are monitor sends and two are can be pre or post. They all offer as standard a USB interface, a 11 channel master EQ section, mid swept EQ on each mono channel, a PC Midi-interface, speaker protection, class D power amplifiers that deliver 2 x 1000w at 4ohms and OLED display menus. Now the Powermate 600-3 is designed to be extremely compact and portable (not that the others aren’t portable really) and because of this, a few features have been trimmed. Powermate 600-3 The Dynacord Powermate 600-3 is the only model in the Powermate range that has been shaved of features and only offers just 3 AUX channels, a single FX, a single Monitor send and a single configurable pre or post AUX. The mono mic channels lose the mid swept EQ and the master EQ drops to a 9 channels. On a mixer of this size, I personally don’t have a problem with these alterations and what is most impressive is the fact they have kept the power output of 2 x 1000w, a USB interface, speaker protection, OLED display. It is these features that make the Powermate 600-3 so impressive due to its physical size. Take a look at our product page for more info and videos on the Dynacord Powermate 600-3 Powered Mixing Desk.
