Harbinger Pro Audio, makers of versatile, powerful, and affordable live sound equipment, are pleased to announce the LP7800 Powered Mixer. Sporting a classic “P.A. head” form factor, it provides bands, choirs, schools, rehearsal rooms, and small to medium-sized performance venues with everything needed to sound stellar, time after time.
The twelve input channels include four mono inputs and four stereo pairs. Seven balanced XLR microphone inputs offer 48V phantom power for condenser mics. Channels 1 through 4 add mono ¼-inch line-level inputs, a -25 dB pad to tame “hot” sources and low-end rumble, and clip indicators to help users instantly diagnose gain issues. With stereo ¼-inch inputs (in addition to mono XLR), channels 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10 are ideal for keyboards and groove boxes. Channel 11-12 features stereo RCA inputs and outputs for connecting a CD player, mobile device, laptop, or DJ equipment.
Every input channel has its own three-band EQ, monitor send, and effects send. High-quality digital effects run the gamut from reverbs and delays to chorus and flanger-and even a vintage rotary speaker simulation. The Variant knob quickly fine-tunes key effects parameters to taste, and an effects-to-monitor send adjusts the intensity of effects heard in the monitors. Effects can be toggled on and off with a footswitch, which is often desirable when the singer in a band also performs emcee duties at an event.
Featuring 800 watts of clean and efficient Class-D power, the LP7800 can be configured in three ways, using a handy front-panel switch: Its two sections can drive left and right speakers in a stereo P.A. system, act as main and monitor sections, or be bridged in mono for maximum output. Independent nine-band graphic EQ for each section makes it easy to sculpt the sound to the room and cut any troublemaking feedback frequencies. EQ sliders all have embedded LEDs for easy viewing of the settings on dark stages.
Flexible audio I/O seamlessly integrates the LP7800 with other sound gear. Line-level outputs for the left/mono, right, and monitor sections can feed additional amps or powered speakers, increasing the system’s coverage. Power amp inputs route a line-level source to the LP7800’s amplifier section and could be employed (for example) to attach another mixer, expanding the number of inputs without taking up an input channel.
The LP7800’s rugged construction, including corner protectors and heavy-duty vinyl covering, ensures every unit will sound and look great for years to come. Five-segment LED meters on both output sections let users know at a glance if the LP7800 is working too hard-or not hard enough.
The Harbinger LP7800 powered mixer will be available at Guitar Center stores and MusiciansFriend.com in February 2019, at a street price of $399.99. To learn more about Harbinger’s line of live mixers, speakers, and turnkey P.A. system solutions, visit www.harbingerproaudio.com.
