Sold - Soundcraft PowerStation 350 Mixer Amplifier - £150

This great Soundcraft PowerStation 350 powered mixer amplifier is for sale. I bought it as a standby unit to cover for equipment failures and to keep handy for use at smaller events. This model was the baby of the Soundcraft PowerStation range, even so, it still has; 6 mic / line inputs, 2 mono/stereo line inputs, aux sends and a versatile, Lexicon branded, effects unit. The amplifier section is capable of providing 175W per channel into 4 Ohms.

For sale - Soundcraft PowerStation 350 - £150

It is a good unit for smaller conferences, for audiences of around 100, possibly even up to 250 with two pairs of speakers. It would also be good for a smaller band or duo with some 12" or 15" speakers to play backing tracks and vocals.

The Soundcraft website has the following to say about the PowerStation 350:
Powered mixers fulfil a widespread need for simple integrated tools that remove much of the hassle involved in setting up a sound system, whether it be a permanent or temporary installation. The inclusion of amplification means that you can plug speakers straight into the mixer, without worrying about finding an external power amp. But a live mixer will also often include additional features that are usually performed by external processors - such as reverb and delay processing, or graphics EQ.
This integrated approach offers several advantages. Most importantly, the mixer and amplifier have been designed to complement each other electronically, so there's no possibility of mismatching between mixer and amp. When time is tight, setting up for a club gig, having everything in one box can mean peace of mind. There are fewer leads to unpack and connect, and fewer boxes to set up, leaving more precious minutes to soundcheck and prepare for a performance. In a permanent installation, there are advantages - a powered mixer is much more compact than separate units, saving valuable space. And if you're setting up an installation from scratch, it's easier to choose a well-designed powered mixer than to pick out several separate boxes to perform the same task.

It is in excellent electrical condition, all the faders slide freely without crackles, all the knobs are present and work smoothly. Note that there are a couple of scratches to the paintwork on the front panel, nothing to spoil the function, just cosmetically unsightly, see the photos below.

There is no modern equivalent product in the current Soundcraft range; but Yamaha, Mackie, Dynacord and even Behringer make similar products for around £350-£400.
It is now priced at £150, the price includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.
