Rockville RPM1870 18-Channel 6000w Powered Mixer

The Rockville RPM 1870 is an 18-channel console format powered mixer with USB input and Bluetooth.

One of the primary goals established by Rockville was clear sound with XDR2 Mic preamps (similar to those used by Mackie).

Each channel has an AUX send and return for inserts as well as 16 built-in 24-bit effects.

Features:

  • Inputs: 16 x XLR / Line In inputs with individual Inserts and 2 x 1/4" Stereo input
  • Channels: 16
  • Power Rating: 2 x 750 Watts @ 4 Ohm, 500 Watts x 2 @ 8 Ohm (RMS)
  • Phantom power: 16 Channels
  • Equalizer: 2 x 7 band EQ
  • Outputs: 2 x Speakon Out (Powered), 2 x XLR Main (unpowered), 2 x 1/4" Main (Balanced), 2 x RCA, 1 x 1/4" Headphone out
  • Onboard FX: reverb, chorus, delay, chorus, phaser, flanger and various multi-effects
  • Weight: 33.07 Lbs

Pros

The output was noted by users to be "pristine" and clear with lots of headroom. The preamps and amplifier get a lot of praise for being able to drive speakers to a satisfying volume. Compared to bringing a mixer and separate amplifier, the RPM1870 also gets good comments about its weight.

Cons

The fan can get loud. A small number of users experienced USB not functioning properly.

Overall

If you want a portable console-style powered mixer with enough inputs for a full band or choir section, the RPM1870 is a good choice.
