We have totally 3 pices of 5014C in different rehearsal rooms and rental for small stages. We often use them together with active Yamaha eon 512 (618XLF) or passive JBL JRX 225. They are really versatile since you can use it with an active sub & speakers and use the built in power-amp for some passive monitors and vice verse. You can also use it in mono-mode with 2x passive 8ohm FOH speakers and 2x mono passive 8ohm monitor speakers. Great!
Since the 5014C has a built in power-amp it works best when you use it close to the stage (if not you need some long speaker cables).
The sweepable mid makes it more flexible then the cheeper models with fixed 3-band EQ. The one-knob-compressor works great on vocals but not so great on drums. The fx isnt top of its class but works ok.
We've had no problems with the modell and the two oldest are aprox 5 years old and are being used 7 hours a day. A great workhorse with a great price.
If your looking for 2 separate effect units & more channels you should look for the bigger 5016CF but when your closing in on 1000? price range your not far away from digital mixers with much more ways to control the sound.
I use this for an acousic set with the Beatbuddy Drum pedal going through it to two subs and tops, The box pro achat 110m and 112 sub set. Going by the weight of this thing you'd think it was just a mixing desk and not powered but don't be fooled...it is well powered! Loads of power. The effects can need tweeking but can sound nice once you've messed around with them a bit. The compresser on it is very usefull for vocals, its very easy to use!
one drawback is that it arrives as is...you need to be very careful loading this into a van or whatever,theres no protection for the controls, they're very exposed during trasportation. I think some sort of soft case like a big laptop bag would be handy but all that seems to be out there are hardcases which are heavy and expensive.
Great buy tho...love this desk. Loads of power for the price, could easily handle a 3/4 piece band who want to play relatively big shows, even outdoor!
