Its hard for me to know whether the Dj community will say its good or its a peice of shit! Well anyway. Is THIS a good controller or will I be criticized???? I don't know alot about them. But Im learning more and more about it, as time goes by.
Well for myself I am interested in buying this controller (HAHA, looks like an equalizer!)
Its a Chauvet Obey 40. http://www.ebay.com/itm/390441182710...ht_2414wt_1149 The reason this ad catches my attention is the incl DMX cables for which I will need to. So why not save money by buying this auction! It almost safe to say that, online is the ONLY place. Cause it gets really expensive to go a store out of IMPULSE to buy this! For instance. I was looking at DMX cables. Guitar Center is asking about $30 for a 25 foot cable. DAMN. Buying 4 will put me out of business! LOL. It it very substantially CHEAPER to buy on Ebay than in a physical store! For another instance: Bought my American Audio CDI300 system for $500 brand new with free shipping. That was 2 years ago. At that time, at guitar center, they had that same CDI300 system for $700+ tax.
WELL ANYWAY, enough of that! Now to talk about light controllers. I am not too concerned about the price. I just want a light controller that I can mount on my rack along with the light switch sys.
I will be looking at moving all light "switches" to the top of the rack
I was looking at the Obey 10, as this looks like a nice one, then I saw the 40, which is alot better than the 10 and only $20 more. So what the heck! Ill just get the 40. Now for the Obey 70, I don't have any desire for that one basically cause it is way more than I need.
I just basically want a controller that I can use to control the 4 Chauvet LEDsplash 86bs I have (planning on 2 more LEDsplash 86bs). As of now, I don't have any other DMX light other than the 4 par cans I have (later 6). But Im very sure I will be buying a couple DMX lights in the future. May not be soon.
Now one other thing. The LEDsplash 86b's have a 3 pin DMX hook up. The cables they are incl in that auction. They are 5 pin. Will I have a problem trying to use those 5 pin DMX cables on my LEDsplash 3 pins EVEN if I have an adaptor? Like this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/DMX-5-PIN-MA...item53e1411f0c
