There are four channels, all with stereo inputs and high and low EQ do not impede on each other's signals at all, allowing you to have four different line level instruments plugged in at once! One channel also has an XLR input for a microphone. Yes, you can play and sing and have it all amplified, along with a couple buddies to back you up. A fifth channel exists that can allow for a monitor input that plays a pre-recorded track or click track. Better yet, this channel can have output sent just to a separate headphone mix, so that you can play with a metronome in your headphones without it coming out the amp speakers.
The amp also features send/returns for effects and pedal boards to either one particular channel or to all combined inputs or both. You can also connect the amp to another external speaker to create a real stereo sound if performing in a wide space or if you just need another monitor speaker. As if that wasn't enough, all inputs to the amp can additionally be sent via XLR outs to a mixing board and from there to a PA system, all with no discernible degradation of signal, allowing you to do volume and basic EQ mixing for a four-piece band right from the amp itself!
I just completed a theater gig that lasted for three weekends, having my keyboard and an acoustic guitar plugged into the amp and the signal sent to a mixing board and out to the house speakers. It worked great, and we were able to use the amp as a monitor. I will certainly do a similar setup again.
All right, so what's the problem? The amp is very heavy, which for the quality is kind of expected. However, the outer casing is in many places composed of a hard, dense foam material underneath the leather skin that seems to dent a little too easy. It is hard to set the amp down gently, even after rolling it (yes, it has wheels, but just two), and one of the stubs it sits on has already been dented into the foam shell and now it won't sit perfectly flat on a smooth surface. None of this has affected the amp's performance.
The other issue is that I had problems with the sound crackling at times and even briefly cutting out entirely (not affecting the signal sent through the XLR outs). Peavey customer support can be slow and was quite unhelpful, asking that they or an authorized specialist take a look, which there was no time for, since the theater gig was underway. A friend looked inside and tightened the colored wires going to the 10-inch speakers simply by pushing them in a bit snugger. The remainder of the theater run went without a hitch and it appears the amp is working perfectly now. Perhaps things got loosened a bit in transport and shipping. I am bothered by Peavey not knowing of this ridiculously easy fix despite how detailed I described the problem to them. If the problem returns, I will update this review.
The bottom line is that I love this amp, but have had a couple aggravating things happen regarding the denting, crackling and Peavey customer support. Really, this is a 5 star amp in so many capacities, but I would feel amiss to not share these stories in case anyone experiences similar issues.
