I’ve always wanted to be able to play small gigs live at venues without a PA, but didn’t want to carry a lot of equipment with me. So I decided to build a compact stereo keyboard amplifier, with a difference! This baby has a built in 8 channel mixer and 100W (x2) amplifier and uses a pair of highly sensitive Audio Nirvana 8″ cast frame full-range drivers. It’s a bit of overkill for the purpose of playing live because it’s unusual to carry around such high quality equipment. However, I want to use it as a portable monitoring system as well as a live performance “band in a box”.
