They Are Perfect for Churches!
Churches often have various styles, and a constant flux of musicians. Its been our experience that the most common interruption comes from having to adjust the monitors’ level. These are on the professional side of quality, and simple to train people on. Quality of their monitors has a profound effect on a musician’s performance and on their enjoyment of playing. Offering personal monitors can be a simple way of increasing a musicians joy in serving.
Scalable and Compatible
The ME-500 can be used for a soloist or a full orchestra to great effect. The key is its scalability. Secure EtherCon connectors allow ME-500s to be daisy-chained, or deployed in a star topplogy using the ME-U or an off-the-shelf PoE switch. Already own ME-1s? No problem, you can mix and match ME-1s and ME-500sto make the most of your inventory. They are compatible with any Allen and Heath digital mixer, as well as a host of others. If you’re using other digital mixers you’ll need to add a ME-U hub fitted with a Dante, MADI, Waves or EtherSound module. They are a great tool for those using other branded boards as well.
