What customers say about "Key Specs"
Behringer EPS500MP3 Portable PA System
  • 500w is an upgrade too and this system has the quality, facilities and power of separates but is still very quick and easy to set-up.
  • Clear, clean sound, plenty of power. Neat layout and versatile inputs and outputs. Love the mp3 usb addition. Good mic too.
  • Lovely and powerful. XLR and mono inputs. Very easily controlled. Speaker wire, Behringer microphone and XLR lead supplied.
  • The cables that come with the unit are also low quality and the power lead is so short it wouldn't touch the floor from a table top.
  • All was going well (they were on around half their power) until the power limiter on the amp turned on and the speakers just completely stopped!
Yamaha Stagepas-300 P.A. System
  • The 300 has enough power to fill a small room/bar with quality sound.
  • The power amp stage is excellent. The mixer is more limited, with only two band EQ and no 48v phantom power.
  • The speakers and power amp stage of the Stagepas 300 are absolutely outstanding, and put out a sound that completely belies their diminutive size and weight.
  • This is just perfect for small gigs. As a solo singer it worked well for me and was very easy to use.
  • Not enough power to fill a large room. Designed only for small rooms.

Yamaha Stagepas-300 P.A. System
  • Not too heavy either when I has to lug it around with me to different venues.
  • Its small, its well put together and it works! The units are still as good as new and 7 years on I would not replaced them.
  • It's easy portability makes it an ideal gigging tool. Very compact, lightweight and good sound.
  • I originally bought it for karaoke nights in the UK, the compact nature of the system is great where space is limited.

What customers say about "Audio"
Behringer EPS500MP3 Portable PA System
  • I use it with my iPod on a Pure DAC dock and the sound quality is like a decent hi-fi and even without the DAC it's very, very good.
  • Really like this bit of kit. Compact, robust, practicable and sounds great too! Would recommend this for any small gig or function.
  • Great purchase! Very compact and brilliant sound quality.
  • The sound is great, volume is plenty for medium sized venues, halls, pubs etc.
  • The item came dead on arrival. I plugged it in and the audio system doesn't turn on in any visiblehearable way.
Yamaha Stagepas-300 P.A. System
  • It is also quite easy to expand the system in future. If you also have a large PA, then the Stagepas will not be wasted, as it also makes a superb onstage monitoring system.
  • Great and clear sound but if used in a large hall, not sure if it would be loud enough, although not tested.
  • The sound quality is excellent with smooth treble and extended bass.
  • The range of inputs is ideal, I route my laptop through one set of RCA inputs and my iPod through the other.
  • The only slight criticism is that the controls are a bit small and awkward due to the small footprint of the amplifier.
