Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The product is sturdy and well made. I've used it several times a week for about a month and have had no problems. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? I am a Zumba instructor, the placement of the volume/tone/input on the front for easy access is great. Another great feature for me is that it is compact and lightweight. I just toss it in my backpack with my other gear. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? It is SUPER easy to use and ready to go right out of the box. I glimpsed at the instructions just to be sure I didn't miss anything, but it was not really necessary. I purchased a $3 adapter (walmart) to fit my mp3 player and I was good to go. Sound How is the tone? Not all the places I teach have a system. I needed something loud but could not afford an expensive system. This produces a really good sound (great bang for your buck), the sound adjustments are a big help in getting the tone just right. General Your general opinion of this product. This is a great portable system for exercise classes, church events, picnics, reunions, etc.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I'm on my third unit. The first one failed while under warranty and got replaced. The second one failed after several years of service...I was disappointed and tried to replace it with a Roland Cube. But the Cube was not up to the task, so I purchased another one. So far, so good. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Feature set is very good. Two XLR/1/4" combo plus a set of RCA inputs cover just about any contingency. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Extremely easy. Virtually no learning curve. Sound How is the tone? Good and loud enough for most spaces. General Your general opinion of this product. We use this for: drummer monitor with the band; monitor for duo performance; main vocal/backing track PA for solo gigs; acoustic guitar amp for religious service. But it has come in handy when other PA gear overheated, failed, etc. So it's always close at hand and has been up to any task.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes, I really like the look of this monitor, and the tight combination of polymer and steel. I love the built in handle (rather than the strap handles used e.g., on the Galaxy Hot Spot). It feels like you could throw it off a building, pick it up, and it would still work. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Lightweight, powerful, great design. I would add ... basically ... NOTHING. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Geez, I don't know how they could make it any easier. You plug it in, you prop it up, you plug in your "shizzah," and it CRANKS. The back panel linking features and mic/line switch, and front panel combo inputs, RCA jacks (for your iPod or other playback device), "instrument" and "phantom power" switches are all top-notch features ... what more could you want? I also love ALL the Mackie manuals ... they are just chock full of useful information for tekkies. Sound How is the tone? Hey, between its butt-whooping 150 watts, Mackie's custom-designed 5.25" neodymium speaker and the 3 band EQ, the punch and dynamic range of this thing is pretty amazing. It's got high end and midrange up the wazoo, and a really respectable bottom end as well, especially if you goose the bottom EQ. VERY well-engineered combo of amp, speaker and EQ features delivers a sound just about anyone should be pleased with in a small package like this.
