Ask any musician what their least favourite part about gigging is and it is highly likely that they will say loading the car at the end of the night. We’ve all been there, thrown everything possible at an audience for two hours, knowing full well that the most physically demanding part of the night is still to come. The 4 PA systems compared in this shootout all claim to be light and compact enough for even the most divaish of singers to easily load into a car at the end of the night, sound good enough to keep the audience, and venue management, happy and not take many gigs to pay for themselves.

When you ask a professional musician to name a brand of wireless microphone, chances are most of them will say Sennheiser. With this in mind, the announcement of their new line of affordable wireless microphones needs very little in the way of an introduction.

When it was released, the Bose L1 compact PA system was a huge game changer for musicians and venues. The clarity, sound quality and portability of the L1 was a big hit across the board. A few years later and the Bose L1 system is still massively popular.

Back in 2015 Soundcraft unveiled the Ui12 and Ui16 Digital Mixers to a hugely positive reception. Also the wireless mixing was nothing new, very few other systems matched it for effects, amp modelling and ease of use. The new and improved version, the Soundcraft Ui24R builds on this reputation and then some.
