Everything You Need
Behringer has put everything you’ll need into one beautiful, easy to move and use package. They even provide a storage compartment for the included wired mic, mic cable, two speaker cables and other accessories. When the show is over, just put everything back in its place, latch it all together and wheel it away.
Channels 1 – 4 feature Behringer high-quality XENYX Mic Preamps, which have been praised by audio pros for their transparency and massive headroom. This means you get a truly clean input signal without unwanted coloration or distortion. They’ve also equipped the EPS500MP3 with +48 Phantom Power, so you can even use studio-grade condenser mics. Each input channel has a highly musical 2-band EQ (Bass and Treble).
System optimization couldn’t be easier, just flip the Music/Speech switch on the EPS500MP3 to select the proper equalization for your purpose. Behringer has also included a user-defeatable Voice-Over-Priority function that automatically lowers the stereo channels when you’re on the mic, so all of your important announcements will be heard.
The Sweet Sound of Reverb
If you’re making a speech, chances are you won’t need it, but if you’re playing a musical instrument and/or singing, you might want to add some effects. So, Behringer has included a great-sounding digital Reverb processor to help sweeten your performance.
Onboard MP3 Player
One of the coolest features of the Europort EPS500MP3 PA system is its embedded MP3 player. Just plug in your favorite playlist (via USB stick) and use the 4-button pad with its Random, Play/Pause, Rewind and Forward control switches. From break and background music to high resolution karaoke performance tracks, this MP3 player can handle it all.
Ddding wireless mics to a PA system meant either a mess of wires and dangling receivers or worse, a built-in receiver with dodgy performance. Those days are officially over thanks to Behringer ULM Series wireless mics and their exclusive, ultra-compact 2-channel receiver. Just plug the receiver into the dedicated wireless port and instantly enjoy two channels of supremely stable, natural-sounding wireless performance.
It’s All About Connections
The Behringer EPS500MP3 comes ready for your input, literally. Channels 1 - 4 accept balanced XLR mics, as well as balanced and unbalanced 1/4 inch line-level sources, such as electronic keyboards and the like. Stereo channels 5/6 and 7/8 accommodate RCA and 1/4 inch inputs, such as drum machines, keyboard sound modules, etc. All in all, there are enough mic and line-level inputs to handle a small band.
