BEHRINGER Intros New PMP Powered Mixer Series

pmp-1113The new PMP Series from BEHRINGER is a family of compact powered mixers with three features that the company claim aren’t on its competitors’ models: 2.4 GHz “wireless-ready” operation, high-end KLARK TEKNIK digital Multi-FX Processors and a FBQ Feedback Detection System.

The four models provide input configurations ranging from 5 to 12 channels and come in at half the depth and weight of most conventional designs (including BEHRINGER’s own). Features include a 500-watt, Class-D power, “Invisible” IMP mic preamps with switchable +48 V phantom power for condenser microphones; 25 presets including reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter and various multi-effects; “wireless-ready” for an optional BEHRINGER digital wireless system; and dual 7-band graphic EQ. The series is aimed at musicians, houses of worship and small to medium-size performance venues seeking a lightweight, wireless-ready PA solution.

The models are:

  • PMP500: a 12-channel powered mixer that lists for $349.99.
  • PMP580S: a 10-channel powered mixer that lists for $349.99. We aren’t sure why anyone would buy this one as it’s priced the same as the PMP500 and has two less inputs?!
  • PMP560M: a 6-channel powered mixer that lists for $299.99.
  • PMP550M: a 5-channel powered mixer that lists for $199.99.
