Crest Audio CV-20

Crest Audio introduces the CV-20 live-sound mixing console, a VCA audio solution designed for applications such as front-of-house, monitors and monitors from front-of-house.

The CV-20 is available in 24, 32, 40, 48 and 56 mono input configurations with 4-band sweepable EQ and fully parametric midfrequency control on each mono input. A feature set of 12 aux sends, eight subgroup assignments and left/center/right panning to the left/right and mono buses provide a wealth of audio-routing options.

Standard on all CV-20 frames are eight stereo input channels consisting of four microphone-line channels and four dual-line channels with the same full assignment capabilities as the mono input channels, plus eight VCA masters, 12 aux masters, eight subgroups and separate left/right/mono controls that can be “fader reversed” to allow fader control of the aux masters.

CV-20 mixing consoles also feature 128 VCA assignment and 144 mute scenes with MIDI control, 16 mute groups, an 11×4 matrix that is expandable to 19×4, full dynamics on all subgroups and main buses (also routable to the aux masters) and full metering on all main and auxiliary outputs.

Available options include meter-bridge kits to monitor all outputs in VU and bus link module kit for linking together two CV-20 consoles. The CV-20 can use its internal power supply as well as an optional, redundant external power-factor-corrected power supply.

The CV-20 will be available in the second quarter of 2007 from authorized Crest Audio dealers.
