New (used) powered mixer day!!!
I've been telling my bandmates that we need to have a backup mixer just to be safe. Until recently, one of the other guys would bring his, if he remembered.
So about a month ago, I saw a Yamaha EMX68S for sale on Kijiji for about $100US. I noticed that one of the XLR jacks had tape on it so I offered $50 CAD (about $38 US) and she accepted. Except for the one XLR jack, everything else works perfectly, including the 1/4" jack on the same channel as the flakey XLR. I've got a few XLR to 1/4" transformers that I can use in this channel so it's no big deal, especially since it's a rehearsal/ backup PA.

It was just too good a deal to pass up!!

This isn't for recording though...this is to amplify the vocals in a live performance.

800W bridged/ 400 per side into 4 ohms/ 270 per side into 8 ohms (all RMS). Like my Peavey powered mixer, the power amps can be split into mains and monitors so we can pump 400 watts out the front and another 400 thru the monitors. My Peavey is only about half the power 420W bridged/ 210 per side@4ohms and 150 per side @8ohms and it's been quite adequate until now.

That is quite good for a backup PA setup, and not too large to truck around!

If I get the xlr jack fixed, I may use it as the primary since it's got a bit more power/headroom and at 32lbs, ya, pretty easy to lug around.

Really, it shouldn't be too bad to fix one input jack like that if you've got a decent amp tech in the area. And if it will cover your needs, you're good to go!

If I jiggle the mic cable in the jack I can get it to work for a second or two. So if I can find an actual replacement jack I should be able to do it myself as I actually DO have some soldering skills
