Equipment Review: Peavey 10 BT Bluetooth Mixer

PV® Series
We here at PMDJ LOVE Peavey Gear. Say Hello to the 10 BT. in short this is a 10 Channel mixer with built in effects FX and GREAT SOUND! BUT, Why do we love it? Besides allowing for a variety of different inputs on the board, channel 7/8 can either be a bluetooth connection to any device (I use it for connecting to my phone or the guests can connect their own phone and playing whatever song we need), or it can be used as a media player to play from a usb drive you also plug directly into the mixer.
Here is more from our friends over at Peavey:Pro Features Made Affordable, All in a Heavy-Gauge Steel Chassis.Multi-use PV® Series mixers feature discrete, ultra-low-noise microphone preamps that are essential for live-sound reproduction and studio recording, plus a host of additional features such as effects and monitor sends on each channel, zero-latency record monitoring capability and 48 volts phantom power.Introducing the next level in world-class non-powered mixer performance. The all new PV® series mixing consoles include Peavey’s reference-quality mic preamps that spec in at an incredible 0.0007% THD, making the PV series mixers excellent for live or recording applications.The PV 10 BT includes 4 channels of reference quality mic preamps, 4 direct outputs for recording, a stereo channel, media channel with Bluetooth® wireless input, high quality digital effects with LCD display, streaming USB out, MP3 playback via USB A input, Peavey’s exclusive Kosmos® audio enhancement, 48-volt phantom power, dual selectable control room outputs, 2 channels of compression, one channel of on board selectable guitar preamp, 3-band EQ per channel with bypass, channel mute buttons, aux send, signal clip indicators, and a stereo master LED meter bridge. This amazingly versatile mixer is at home both in the studio as well as live applications.Modern features such as Bluetooth allow seamless connection to almost any “smart” device. 4 direct outs allow easy connection to most DAW interfaces for recording. In addition, the PV 10 BT can stream audio directly to a PC. MP3 playback is also available, just plug a flash drive with MP3 files on it into the USB A port and use the LCD to select and play back music. The PV series Solo feature allows the user to listen to individual channels via headphone or control room outputs, and the EQ bypass allows the user to hear and compare the EQ’d signal to the original signal with the push of a button. 2 channels of compression keep signals with difficult levels under control, and Peavey’s exclusive guitar shape adjusts the EQ and preamp specifically for guitar. Hi pass filters on every channel remove unwanted rumble and noise, and balanced AUX and Master outputs ensure a clean noise-free signal to your powered speakers or power amplifier.Features
