format_quote Designed to be used mainly in broadcast, the B800 ensures superior audio performance. Modules are connected to internal bussing via motherboard construction, audio connections are via balanced XLRs, and all internal mix busses are balanced to achieve a high degree of isolation, noise and interference rejection, and robust signal handling.

This English made console offers:

- 20 mono and 8 stereo channels with dedicated XLR inputs for mic and line
- 4-band semi-parametric design, with a phase reverse switch and high-pass filter
- 8 auxiliary sends. Mono auxes 1-6 are controlled by three pairs of dual-concentric pots, and are switchable pre/post- fade in pairs. Aux 7 and 8 are both stereo sends, with dual- concentric pots for level and pan control. Each can be switched to pre or post-fade.
- 8 group channels providing both Stereo Return and Group Master facilities.
- The Limiter in the Group signal path, with possibility to link mono channels.
- Two fully independent and fully featured modules are provided for ST1 and ST2, with their own sets of outputs.
- A mono output is also available, jumper selectable pre or post the limiter. This output has a rotary level control, offering up to 0dB of gain, Mute circuit, and PFL. The signal is a mix of the Stereo Master left and right signals, and is taken pre or post-fader, as determined by the PRE switch.
- In addition to its communication functions, the Communications Module also carries VCA Master faders 3 &4, allowing further input channel level control.
- The Monitor Module provides facilities for mono and stereo monitoring of many internal and external sources, as well as VCA master faders 1 and 2 for adjusting input module gain.

Comments

All inputs and most outputs are with XLR. Some are with edac and D-sub.
Console is configurable in many different ways by switches and jumpers on each channel. Manual is needed for specific configurations.
Channel 13 (unlucky number) doesn't have its channel number on. So it has a blank Mute switch.
DK Audio MSD 200 has a separate power supply hanging on the back. It needs to be connected to the wall separately. Signal is wired to Master out L and R.
Console is FAN cooled. They can generate noise if they stay standing for long time. New fans are cheap and readily available. Console should not run without the FANs on. Fans are ON when all the PSUs are switched on.
All the screws and nuts are provided to build the unit correctly + some screws for spare.
Burn mark on the upper plastic profile from the spotlight heat.
Master VU-s and correlometer has been disconnected from POWER and signal is routed to MSD 200. So all the lights are out and meters show nothing. Customer can wire them to Monitor out or to what ever other source he wants to be monitored.
Service manual is available online. And contain wiring and schematics and explanations. User manual is also available online and provides explanations on how to use and wire it.
