I eventually will replace it with the latest & greatest! I'm hoping to get 5 to 10 out of it!

I've had the PM-30 for about a year now. All in all I think it was a great buy. My main use is to have some control over my monitor. Overall sound is great for small or large venues. A little weak out doors.

I tried to use the satellite speakers but they are not loud enough to hear if you're playing an acoustic kit. They might work great for an electronic set but are of no use to me, (unless you count the fact I use them on my home theater system). I stopped using them & now primarily use the headphone jack for my Westone in ear monitors. I would highly recommend that if you can get a good monitor mix, to use headphones or in-ears. Better for stage volume anyway.

Ease of Use
I like the 3 different inputs, (one with RCA). I use it with a Roland SPD-20 with four external drum pads. I use 1 channel for the SPD-20, one for a monitor return & the 3rd for my computer, (for practice) and sometimes a click track. It has a real deep punch & low end. Put your drum effects in one channel & your music player in another, and with or without in-ears, mix it to sound really good. EQ works great!

It's held together a year with moderate use. I would suggest a cover for it while transporting. Wheels are cheap but are still turning and the knobs on the amp read more are a little cheap, but still work. Don't forget to blow out the drumstick sawdust off the sub once in a while! lol

If you have the cash, it's worth it. You have more control of what you hear & can mix up to 3 inputs + the 3 band EQ.!
