Disclaimer: This is a board that retails for under $200 so don't expect miracles! We were discussing inexpensive boards on another thread recently which prompted me to buy a Chauvet DMX-70 (About $170- 180) I have played around with it for about a week or so in my garage theater (actually more of a family room with a company switch ) Anyway, I had it feeding three Q-spot 250's which are 13 channel Chauvet movers. All in all, I am impressed! Once again, keep in mind this is an under $200 board. Pros: The unit gives you 14 channels of access (16 including the joystick) without having to change pages. It will support 32 channels per fixture. (with paging) It allows you to soft patch each fixture, so all the dmx channels are patchable when using a mix of fixtures. 240 scenes (30 banks of 8) Very clean and simple look. Cons: Like the DMX-55, the joystick still stinks. Accidentally hitting a scene button twice will cause it to "blackout" (a quick third hit will bring it back.) Buttons have a tricky feel, not always firing when you "feel" the click. Summary: I really like it for what it is! For those with a real board, this might be a good test board, giving you good access during setups from stage.
