New Bose t8s mixer

Post by mr.dj » Tue Feb 06, 2018 8:07 am

Seen this new Bose T8S model mixer pre release offer from my UK supplier
https://www.bose.co.uk/en_gb/products/s ... mixer.html
I don't have Bose speakers but am attracted to this new offering as it has 8 import Xlr's and 2 aux plus usb. Also it can output as stereo, something that the previous tonematch was unable to offer.
I presently use 4 wireless mics with independent controls at the moment plus I use separate channels for main karaoke and background player so the above would suit me well.
There are some room configurations that definately sound better with the stereo setup, like a regular club I work at where most people are seated and the room is long and narrow. The average bar is a different story as lots of people standing and L shaped rooms defeat the stereo image so then I switch to mono.

The other attraction is its compact and lightweight so will make my rig case even easier on my back. :D
What are others thoughts on this new mixer ?

I use the T1 ToneMatch mixer and love it. I don't mind the mono as I only hope up to one JBL Eon One speaker system. Which is adequate for my needs since there's no venue that I will ever work in where the clientele will surpass the 100 person mark. The bars where I am that would even go for Karaoke aren't big enough to handle more people than that. I have gotten away with less power than the JBL system puts out.

Well I've taken a chance and ordered the T8S, Estimated delivery to me is 6th to 9th March so hope it lives up to my expectations.
Will post more when I've played around with it.

Danny, if you read this which vocal effect and settings do you find best for average singers with your ToneMatch ?

I have only been using reverb but without having the mixer set up at this moment I can't tell you what reverb setting that I have it set to. I was considering going with the T4 but only having one of the JBL speakers makes me wonder if I can run the T4 in mono out to the JBL Eon One speaker system that I have now.

Having done the research, I have decided to go ahead and get the T4. Found out that one of the 1/4 inch outputs is a mono output which means I can assign the master out to that output and run it in mono until I need to get a second JBL Eon One speaker system.
