Cold blasted and still colorful

klampfencharly, 16.12.2009
During the performance of a friendly band, the right headlight stand suddenly sails across the stage. The singer reaches heartily, grabs two of the PARcans and sets it up again. Ouch, I think, fins burned. No way.

Functionality and operation:
My first contact with LED headlights had fascinated me and so I looked at the things after the gig more closely, then order us 8 pieces. The aluminum can comes with a fixed but very short power cable and an easy-to-use glass breaker grille therefore. As with all other PARcans, a hanger is bolted to the side of the box. The large star nut made of plastic serves to screw in the desired beam angle. Here you have to turn tight, so that the headlight does not tip down at the first shock.

The hanger is screwed by means of a guided through a hole screw / nut on the stand or a Traverse. We use two Stairville tripods. Here, too, must be properly lashed because the metals have little grip on each other and the desired angle of radiation quickly twisted.

The already mentioned power cable with safety plug I think too short (as with other Cans also), so they could have been up to about the earth. So we had to install on the Ständerraversen multiple sockets, so do not dangle four extension cords from the stand down.

Now it's time to set the light. Of the three different operating options (DMX controller, pre-programmed Colorfade mode and Sound to Light), we have decided for the time being for the color mode. In other words, the color, time intervals and / or transitions are set on the back of the headlamp. For this you should absolutely keep glasses and small screwdrivers ready. The raster pins are so small that you have to fiddle properly. And you should bring along time, there are a lot of light combinations with 8 headlights. The duration of each fade time is controlled by a rotary knob, from fast flickering to minute intervals. Overall, the programming funzt but quite well. But on the day of the gig everything should be ready, the programming would cost as much time as building an entire stage, including soundcheck.

Luminous efficacy and practice:
Since only 51 LEDs of one color (RGB) are available, you also have loss of brightness in the single-color mode. Therefore, we have sometimes chosen mixed colors, which are much lighter. The LEDs are quite cold-blooded, some color combinations fit into an ice cream parlor, rather than on a rock stage. But if you have found the right mix, the PARcans offer everything you need for a small stage.
The programmed crossfades are a good alternative to the DMX controller because you do not have around 8 more cables hanging around. However, the crossfades of some color settings jerk something, a consistently soft transition you do not get. It does not need that, rock music jerks too.

The sound to light mode (built-in Mik in the function of a light organ) is for our purposes not the yellow of the egg. When it gets quieter, it gets darker too. Since you have to combine with hard-coded PARcans.

What a great advantage of the launcher is that the LEDs need little juice. The light will not lie so when the fuse pops out. On the stage, only the purse of the organizer is spared, but in the basement bar or in the rehearsal room this is very noticeable.

And, now comes my entrance experience, these things just do not get warm. Firstly, this is very beneficial when shooting on stage - I usually have almost on the face on tight stages - and secondly, you do not get any blisters if you reduce the cans immediately after use.

Overall rating:
The Stairville LED PAR 56 are well suited for our gigs on small stages or the fixed location in the rehearsal room. 8 pieces make a sufficiently comfortable light. For a light intensity analogous to the warm-light PARcans I think you should already plan at least twice the amount.

Very advantageous are the operating options, power consumption and temperature. The price-performance ratio is now very ok

Perfect for small to medium events

MSM1992, 07.03.2010
The PAR 56 from Stairville with LEDs instead of the usual 300 to 1000 watt PAR burner has many advantages over a conventional PAR. As a technician of a smaller coverband, I am particularly interested in the low power consumption of less than 20 watts (even measured once again with a measuring device. Result: 14Watt at full light power -> white).

On the other hand also very positive: The device has practically no heat development (it is not even pleasant hand warm) and not only on the device but also the light itself, which will really thank the actors, because even if you only two or even a meter From the spotlight it is not yet warm, although it is already unpleasantly bright.

Thus equal to the light output. The indication on the Thomann side, the light output corresponds to about 36% of a 300 watt halogen lamp well. The light output is therefore weak, but in relation to the price and above all the current consumption class! I dare to say that you can never produce such beautiful colors with a conventional PARs and the usual color films, at least as far as the basic colors are concerned.

Generally the color representation of this LED PAR is good and also the otherwise so critical seen yellow is not as bad as feared. In my opinion completely sufficient. The only drawback I noticed: in the stand-alone Colorfade modes, it always comes to interfering jumps between two colors, but even a small band like the ones I already use DMX is no longer a problem Also the modes, which are available without DMX are quite usable once. Only the sound to light mode is bleak, absolutely simple: the louder the music the whiter the light.

But all in all, the LED PAR from Stairville is a top equipment for bands for small to medium-sized events!
